Things missed: Street Fashion

One of the things I miss living in Karachi is the non-existent street life.For those who don't know; basically if you are on the streets in the city you try to blend in as much as possible. You also have to avoid the general hotness, garbage in the street and ignore all the men staring. As in - not a place where any young people are going to be walking around in fun street fashion.Because of this I've been really into following street fashion blogs from around the world. My favorite is of course; The Sartorialist. Really what I love about what he shoots - aside from the loving depiction of people from all walks of life and beautiful to look at pictures - is the quirkyness of his subject. The subjects are not usually of  'fashion magazine' perfect fashion sense - it's all about how their style represents a personal statement.Below are a link of some of my recent favorite images. I just like looking at them and imagine the environment - it's almost like a 30 second mini vacation.

I really like the contrast between this photo and the one above both in terms of the background, expression on the woman's (girl's?) face and the overall tone of the image. I love the outfit for its flow-y thick top and the skinny bare legs with short dress."]Young girl with skinny legs on phone. [/caption]

Other blogs I've been recently following include Feedshion which is (you guessed it) an aggregated fashion feed site.  Also love Feedpeeper (Peeps!) - but the RSS feed doesn't include the pictures so that's a booooo. But it does have street fashion from different cities which is fun to compare and contrast.
