Give New Yorkers- more specifically those in the Bronx- a warm day and give way to a gravel carpet! A silent competition. As oppose to a red carpet, this fashion show is more serious. Anyone can win. The rules are not written down but everyone knows whats accepted and whats just too much. Everything have to fit together, your outfit, your attitude, your posture, and even those around you have to have it up to par.
It’s everyday life! Without down jackets and heavy clothing to cover your main garb, the city’s eyes are on you and your full outfit. You are representing your neighborhood, your culture, and everything you associate yourself with as soon as your walk out the house.
Maria, I think, beat everyone in the neighborhood to the punch. It’s like she won the competition before it fully begun! To badddddd if you didn’t wear that spring outfit you were saving, it looks like Maria already won!
I met Tjay at Dr. Naison’s (one of my Fordham professor’s) house party.
She’s a dancer from Germany.
Take note of her simple but chic outfit. First of all, I love that she has a hat on and is rocking it well. Not too many people have the talent to add a hat to their outfit and rock it. Also, she has on a fitting lace skirt, not a regular black skirt which really goes with her wedges. (If you look closely, you would also see her new tattoo on her right arm).
