Rosie - Saint Laurent, Montreal
"My sister's wardrobe. Yes, she just left for Vancouver, she left me a bunch of stuff, so a lot of it's her's. And otherwise I just love reading magazines, so I guess it just comes from myself."
Rosie looks great in her bright tights, trench and minidress.
Rosie does a great job of making high boots seem wearable for day. I like how she pairs it with bright tights and over knee socks to extend the line.

Bart - Near Promenade Ontario, Montreal
"Well I don't, I just dress the way I feel like. I come from France, so I don't know, it's French trendy style."
Another example of how a few elements and proportions can make a casual outfit have a little more style. I really like his militaristic jacket because it has interesting elements, epaulets that are unnecessary, zippers and a slightly different silhouette. I also like how he bunches his tight, but probably too long jeans.
A look at his trainers.

Gretchen - Hayes Valley, SF
"I think what inspires my style is my mood mostly, I try to express myself, it's different each day. So right now it's definitely the 70s, sometimes it's flower child, sometimes it's Abba."
Lovely blouse and sitting-on-waist flared jeans. I like how she looks like she could've stepped out of a 1979 Prell ad. Gretchen is the powerhouse behind Moth Love.
A look at her sandals.

Nadia - Promenade Ontario, Montreal
"I guess I like the colors to brighten up my day and the heels make me feel good."
I love it when I see bright colors together, especially without patterns à la color blocking. (Though to be honest, I hardly do it because I mostly wear patterns.)
A look at her white tights and brown boots.

Tasha and Yohann - Near Old Town, Montreal
Tasha: "My style, right now it's not interesting, it's for an interview. But normally I'm inspired by bright colors, all sorts of fun things, vintage clothing, corduroy."
Yohann: "This is a bike courier style."
I love how Tasha looks with her corduroy blazer, pedal pushers (!) and sea foam green knit socks. She's so very cute and he is a good counterbalance looking the part of the typical bike courier.
Spokes and shoes.

Anthony - Near Old Town, Montreal
"That's a good question. I did not think about it before I dressed, well... (I'm not good in English) I like my legs to be (visually) skinny, I like my neck to be enlaced - can I say that? So something comfortable on the top and toning on the legs."
Anthony has on the most incredible one-piece vest/ scarf with a hood, purchased on his last trip to Japan. His layers of black: leather jacket, tunic shirt and jeans are also spot on.
Not to mention the black snakeskin Adidas shell toes.

Tricia - 24th Street, SF
In her favorite color, the lovely and expectant Tricia of bits and bobbins and wardrobe_remix joined me for tea at a cafe in the Mission District. Of course, Tricia has graced fashionist many times before. She embodies what I love most about fashion: individuality, interesting silhouettes, pattern, color and a strong diy aesthetic.
A look at her boots.
