my first day in NYC!

Not-so-fresh off the plane/subway and it was intensely humid. My first purchase in NYC was an umbrella from a charming Canal Street vendor. No sooner bought than the sky opened up. It passed but was still mighty oppressive out when, somewhere in Soho, I ran across this airy woman looking cool and fresh. I love lacey or open-weave stuff. The sweet camisole, Gibson girl up-do and umbrella lend a vintage feel to the whole show.

This woman, near the New York Road Runners' offices on the upper east side, was a study in soft draping. Loved loved her simplified gladiator sandals and the simple draped skirt. How did she manage to make a plain gray t-shirt seem elegant?
