PSA: Please Hide Your Butt Cheeks

It’s time.

Time for a talk about your butt cheeks.

And I’m specifically talking to the women that are pushing the high waist low cut denim shorts trend forward.

Short shorts are great, but you don’t need to walk around with your butt cheeks hanging out.

Chatting About Style and NYC with Layla

Maybe it’s the cobble stones. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s a quiet street amongst chaos. Whatever the reason, Crosby Street, specifically, the section between Prince and Spring, is one of my favorite places to walk in the city.

While walking towards Spring (on Crosby) this weekend I spotted a stylish woman having what appeared to be a heated conversation.

Blowing Kisses and Lying Out Topless

These street style interviews are still pretty new to me, and while I consider myself to be a person that can strike up a conversation with just about anyone, it can be a bit nerve-racking at times.

In New York, you don’t know if the person speaks English, and you have no idea if they are going to blow you off. It’s a crap shoot each time out the gate.

With that said, I wasn’t planning on talking to Maria and hadn’t mentally prepared, but when I bent down to snap a shot of her she immediately stuck her tongue out the side of her mouth and tossed up a peace sign with her hand.

Street Style: What Inspired Samantha’s Outfit

Did you hear? Fashables was named one of the Top 10 Street Style Blogs by Esquire! Cool right?

Today’s post has a mixture of traditional street style photos, as well as the new street style interviews that I’m doing.

For today’s interview you’ll hear from Samantha. Apparently she spends a good amount of time looking at naked people. You may also be surprised to find out what item inspired her look for the day. Give the interview a quick listen (click play just below the first photo) to find out more.

Lilly on Houston

Traditionally, I share anywhere from five to 10 street style photos in a post. That format will still continue, but I’m going to start adding something new to the mix as well.

As you’ll see below, there’s a street style photo of Lilly. I spotted her crossing Houston and snapped a shot after noticing her sunglasses. Shorty thereafter I stopped her for a quick chat. Check out the photo and short audio interview (60 seconds) below.

Street Style: Outerwear

There’s something about walking around New York City that can be rejuvenating. Especially on a warm’ish day. And I use the word warm very loosely.

While roaming around on Saturday, I couldn’t help but notice tons and tons of coats. Specifically, lightweight coats. They are, in general, much more fun that most heavyweight coats. Granted, one reason I say that is that lighter coats aren’t always buttoned or zipped and allow a little style to be exposed.

Enjoy today’s shots.

These Shoes have Flavor

I was browsing around J.Crew a month or so ago and was doing my normal routine of quickly scanning the room to see if anything stood out.

I looked to the right.

Then to the left.

And then back to the right.

But as I was looking back to the right, something instantly stood out: this awesome pair of Nike Pegasus shoes.

Our Wedding Photos

It’s been just over two months since our wedding and I finally have some shots from the photographer to share with you.

As I think back on the wedding, the photographs give you a glimpse of the experience, but I’m not really sure anything can do it justice. It’ll definitely be interesting to see how the video turns out.

The shots below show you a little of what happened before the wedding, during the ceremony and after. Now we just have to buy some of the shots and have the photo album created. Wedding photography is a funny thing. You pay a ton for a photographer, who essentially takes pictures so you can pay more money to print the photos or make an album. Yes, you pay money to be able to pay more money. It’s a genius business model. :)

Cole Haan Nailed it with this Women’s Boot

W was looking for a new pair of heels over the weekend so we popped in to see our friends at Cole Haan.

While she was browsing around I couldn’t help but notice another woman that was trying on a couple pair of boots. One pair was on the low side, and the other pair was taller.

She seemed completely perplexed as to which pair of boots to get, but I knew there was one clear choice. So, after a few minutes of observing what was going on – in a non creepy way of course – I said, “You have to get the tall pair.” She looked over and was probably thinking, “Why does this guy in gym clothes think he can give me fashion advice?”
