unadulterated street fashion since 2007

Favorites - So far

I'm flattered that Blogger has chosen me for their blogs of note (thank you!). So, if this is your first time visiting. Hello and welcome.

My name is Mai and I take street fashion photos almost daily, posting at least 15 times a week. Here are some of my favorites.

(left to right) Rehal, Kiki, Benae

(left to right) Francisco, Ceasar, Chris

(left to right) Emily, Leanne, Chase

Also, to the kind people who've left questions in the comments. I'll try to answer a few:

1. How do you convince people to let you take their picture?
I approach them and ask very nicely (I'm always ready to hear "no").

2. Where do you find stylish people?
Everywhere. Almost everyday I take long walks from my neighborhood (Lower Haight) into other neighborhoods such as the Mission, Upper Haight, Hayes Valley, the Civic Center or Downtown. If there is a festival in Dolores Park, I try to stop by, but that doesn't happen often enough. And just in case - I always carry my point and shoot in my bag.

Again, thank you for stopping by!

Hi Mai,

Congrats on being a "blog of note"! It's so refreshing to see some real street fashion, a welcome reminder that style and income often have little to do with one another.

I think it's great how you go around and ask people to take pictures. Have you thought of becoming a photographer in the fashion business?

Hi Mai,

Great blog! I love Kiki's dress. It's gorgeous. I also like Chase's use of the contrasting black and white with a punch of red. I love using those colors together, or white and navy with a punch of red.
