• Best of 2007: Real Style

    Happy Monday!
    So it’s sad but true: 2007 is coming to a close.

    Most people will be out of town for the next two weeks, so I decided to dedicate this week to looking at the Best of the Year for the Fashion Bomb!

    Today, I’m going to look at one of my favorite Monday rituals: Real Style.
    Asking strangers for their pictures used to be totally painstakingly nerveracking for me, but now I’ve gotten into the groove of snapping fashionable women (and men!) in the streets:
    The Fashion Bomb has captured chic essence from the groves of Miami to the Bahamas and New York….


    Photographed fashionistas in the Tents of Bryant Park for Fashion Week…
    Stopped everyone from Japanese tourists in midtown….
    …to jumper wearing hipsters in the streets of Williamsburg…
    …and even documented the young beautiful set enjoying Prospect Park BBQ’s…
    …and white themed 4th of July parties…
    It’s been fun!

    While my humble Kodak goes everywhere from Soho to the South, nowhere have I taken more Real Style pics than at Habana Outpost, one of my favorite summer chill spots…
    It got so excessive, one reader named ‘Mister’ wrote in, “Have you ever considered trying a place other than Havana Outpost?”
    I plan on definitely expanding in the New Year and *promise* that the Fashion Bomb will seize its international destiny tres soon.
    Keep watching!
    Stay tuned this week for The Fashion Bomb’s votes for Best Style, Best Style Evolution, and more!
