Weekend Wear - Leyden looked so cool and comfy in these vintage workwear pants and her knack for heritage clothing probably stems from her experience at Double RL. I loved everything about her weekend look, including the back of the pants, oversized and super bunched together at the waist, creating a little denim bubble butt (a shot I accidentally erased. Grrr).
Don’t you love the dreamy brownstones on Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg in the background? The street was actually crazy crowded and this was the only shot with no human right up on her bumper.

Brooklyn’s Finest – I spotted model Vanessa Breuer on Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, watching band Sweet Street Symphony take to the streets. I’ve also shot Vanessa in the West Village and loved her breezy weekend vibe here. She’s wearing a shredded ‘Creature of the Night’ T-shirt, Rag & Bone Mila shorts and surprisingly, that’s a Sass & Bide bra underneath. She’s also wearing the sneaks from her West Village shot.
#Want: I give up on finding her bra online, but found a few fancy ones to wear under sideswiped shirts:
Trivia: Do you love Vanessa’s superhero stance? You can’t tell here, but the sidewalk is nuts and I even had to wait for a lull in foot traffic to get a clean shot. If you ever run into her, she’s got a great laugh (and a handsome man.)
I spotted Milan in Brooklyn on Williamsburg’s Bedford Avenue, sporting NYC’s certified summer look that’s trending here, with the sexy sideswiped T (detailed below), shredded shorts and boots. The trend is a DIY cut, but looks like hers was off the rack like this. She’s wearing a bikini top underneath (smart), but some women are sticking to ornate bras which you’ll see here tomorrow. She picked up the shirt at Urban Outfitters, with shorts from Australia’s One Teaspoon, a Collina Strada bag and Justin boots. Come back for Model Monday tomorrow and you’ll catch a familiar face sporting the same look on the same block, spotted just a few minutes earlier.

Dance x Dance – I spotted these two cuties on Bedford in Williamsburg and think they both have some kind of star quality. Wendress and Bibi met at their college a couple years ago when they were both auditioning for the dance club. Bibi says they clicked and now she’s even president of that dance club.
Wendress likes to dance and perform and when I asked about music faves, she wrote, “I listen to all kids of music whatever gets me up and dancing.” She likes to shop at thrift shops and Urban Outfitters.
Bibi is an actress and dancer/choreographer, but also makes and designs clothes, like the pocket T she’s wearing. She’s also a freelance personal shopper and hairdresser. She said, “I listen to everything. I like indie, hiphop rock… mellow music but I also like the crazy thing.” She also let me know, “I love to shop! My fav stores, Urban Outfitters, Topshop, Beacon’s Closet and Buffalo Exchange.”
Keep an eye out for these two and maybe we’ll see their names in lights some day.

Brooklyn Bound – I spotted Samantha on Bedford and N. 7th and thought she still looked put together after working all day. She’s wearing a vintage jacket, Uniqlo shirt, J Brand jeans, an H&M patterned scarf over her vintage green scarf and Nina Z shoes from the Brooklyn Flea. I originally shot Samantha for Racked New York, but was curious to find out where she likes to shop and hang, shared below.
I work in Media and Public Relations at the Guggenheim Museum and I am a food writer for Terrific Magazine. I generally shop in Brooklyn at Bird, In God We Trust, Steven Alan, Odd Twin Vintage, and the Brooklyn Flea or Artists & Fleas.
I suppose Bird is my favorite store, with Creatures of Comfort coming in at a close second.
Hang time includes the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Mile End Delicatessen, and Black Gold Records.
Saucy Sarah – I thought Sarah looked so evergreen in her vintage Lacoste jacket and serious vintage Levi’s flairs. She’s also wearing an American Apparel bodysuit, a Marc by Marc Jacobs wishbone necklace mixed with vintage necklaces, a Target belt and Urban Outfitters shoes. She has an infectious laugh and likes to shop for unique and quirky clothes.
Sarah Nisch is a Brooklyn-based actress and singer whose first EP, By Heart, was fully funded by kickstarter and just released on Valentine’s Day. (You might even recognize the denim on her album cover.)
Vintage Lacoste + Vintage Levi’s
Yes, I went there. (Come on, the pocket detail was half the charm.)
After Hours – Carlotta Bertelli is a photographer I spotted in Williamsburg, just after she had finished shooting a top model. I thought her face channeled Kate Moss and loved her glasses (devoid of lenses) and the way she twisted her scarf into a chic nonchalance. The hair? Inspired.
She opened a box of Camel cigarettes to pull out her business card. Her website is called Not a Hat and I expected her to be a good photographer, but was surprised to find such stunning fashion editorials from someone so young. (Her credits read like someone you’d expect to be a decade older). We couldn’t come up with a name for her look (kaleidoscope, I thought), but she’s into vintage and colors. Keep an eye on Carlotta. I think she’s on to something.
