Eye On Style: A closer look at that person in the street fashion photo

Eye On Style
I love street style blogs. Some of my favorites are Garance Dore, Helsinki Style, Face Hunter, and of course The Sartorialist. I could stare at the beautiful clothing in real life context for hours. When I think about it, it’s not solely the clothing that evokes such interest but the people wearing it. I look at their faces, the way they carry themselves and wonder what their lives are like and who they are inside.

Mary Jo Matsumoto of Trust Your Style has started a new series on personal style by asking people what influences their style, what they do, and who they are. It’s like taking a deeper look at style photos. I loved participating and wish I had worn something a little fancier. I was really busy when she asked me so I just sent a photo I had of me in an everyday outfit. I’m loving the other people she’s featuring.

Check her blog out for more and read up on the participants up until now in Eye on Style. I especially enjoyed MJM’s latest participant Anne Sage of the blog City Sage. Check it out.

    Oh my gosh, I can’t believe that you wrote this–it popped up on my dashboard right while I was perusing Garance Dore. Thanks so much Samantha! Also, if you want to send a photo more to your liking, we’ll redux.

    You look fabulous! You definitely have a flare for putting together texture, style and color. Perhaps the next time you are photographed for a style page, Pita, the wonder dog, will be accessorized as well!
    Love Mom

    yes mom, I agree something furry textured is missing from my outfit….Pita is needed!

    Yes Anne! She is the absolute best. I love her designs and her blog and she’s a fabulous person as well. I got to meet her last summer after a long email friendship and working together on some illustrations. She’s a super person and super talent!

    Oh my, I’m blushing! Thank you ladies for the sweet comments!! It’s been such a pleasure getting to know both of you via blogland. It always blows me away, all the amazing and talented people (like yourselves) that I would never otherwise have met.
