I bumped into The Glamourai the other day in the Fashion District when she had just come from a fitting. She’s from Texas but I think sometimes “New Yorkers” aren’t always actually born in New York. She’s a committed New York fashion girl these days and she’s won my admiration with outfits like the one you see here. Polka dots, prints, stripes, solids, metal spikes, wood, leather, fur, crucifixes…it takes an experienced hand and keen eye to pull all of these disparate elements together into a cohesive whole…don’t try this at home. She had been out to two fashion parties the night before as well because she’s part of the fashion pack. Listen…I keep fashion in perspective…I mean none of us are saving lives here…but I’m completely serious when I say that it’s vitally important that there are girls like her in New York. Just think of how much effort went into this one outfit – shopping, laundry, dry cleaning, sourcing and tailoring vintage pieces, making the crucifix necklace, etc. Someone who will put this sort of thought and time into their outfit on a cold and hungover January morning is one of the 4,738 reasons why New York will never be Cleveland.
