Nia and Alison - 18th Street, SF

fashionistNia: "Well I just had an interview today, so I'm trying to look my best with this shirt. I changed my jeans, of course. But, I guess I looked at images of Francois Hardy today, so it inspired me to dress up a little bit."
Alison: "I'm actually wearing suspenders and whatnot. My style is inspired by my beautiful roommate Jessica because I'm wearing her sweatshirt."

I like visual patterns and Nia and Alison have a white and black, yin-yang thing going on (though of the more traditional type). This post also reminds me that style isn't as easy (or as hard) as people sometimes think. It's the details that jump out at me: the deliberate ripped knees on Nia's jeans, her adorable blouse, the lace anklet socks on Alison (and how that sort of echos Nia's blouse), her heart sunglasses, and even her gorgeous bike. These ladies have style in spades.

A look at their black shoes.

Good shots especially the close up.

Regarding Alison "I'm actually wearing suspenders and whatnot." Confused - What did she mean by that? I don't see any suspenders?

Also, was she actually riding that bike in that dress? Wow.

No dress, it's actually a sweatshirt. She's wearing shorts and there are suspenders on her shorts, but all you can see is her sweatshirt. She meant that she's decent, even if it looks like she has no pants on.

Thanks for the clarification. I never would have guessed about the (unseen) suspenders and shorts.
The "sweatshirt dress" definitely has a certain sexiness about it as pictured.

BTW did you get a new camera somewhat recently?
Your shots seem to be so much sharper.
