Street style: Corset & cardigan, New York

corset cardigan street style new york THE VIEWFINDER

“New York isn’t that beautiful as they make it appear…”

Such a friendly young lady, doing her study work at Starbucks. I happen to sit across her and started a small chat about her style and within a few minutes she, my wife and I we having a nice conversation about New York, its way of life and being here as a tourist.

She told us a summery of her life here in New York and it was nice hearing her honest opinion about the city that never sleeps. For instance that New York isn’t that beautiful when it’s covered with snow. “Yes the postcards only show the nice spots with snow, but the most of the snow is dirty brown/ black because of the traffic. People dress themselves quite poor and the wind can be quite harsh.”
