I could have done an entire photo shoot right then and there; but he happened to be working, so I settled for a few shots of his awesome over-alls. I stepped into this eclectic boutique in Soho and found Jean behind the counter. His patterned shirt and oh-so high-waisted overalls remind me of my youth, only he pulls it off way better. He had a quiet spirit and was extremely at home in front of the camera. Jean Sebastien. Bringin’ it back.

Here comes the glitter again. I have a feeling that none of this was bought right off the rack. Her worn-in Converse and faded jeans give her overall look a thrown together vibe which may or may not be even accurate. In any case, Josanne has a fun rock look, without losing her fresh feminine feel. I stopped her on the Monmatre streets in Paris – although she calls Holland home. Josanne. Rockin’ Paris.

One of my favorites – possibly because I could never have the guts for this getup – OR because she had the most polite, fragile personality. Exactly why we must never judge a book by its cover. Dissect her whole look and you’ll see a lot going on; but all together, and it meshes quite well. Her TALL boots, oversized bag, three-layered top and assortment of accessories must have doubled the weight of her 5’1’’ stature…haha. Cristiana. Packed a punch with her florescent hair.

Leather and candy. That’s the combo going on here. Only a select few can pull off one single material head to toe – not to mention that material being Leather – but this gal did it and definitely got my attention. The harsh material, pixie cut, and dark colors, combated by her feminine makeup and bright red lips create a great balance and keep her from looking like a biker babe. Turns out she writes a local fashion blog and was all too eager to take a few fun shots in the candy aisle. Rough yet angelic demeanor. Angelica.

This girl was radiating; and I don’t just mean her bright yellow Converse. I spotted her on the main shopping street in Stockholm and her outfit and energy immediately grabbed my attention. I love the pop of color she uses. You can see aspects of fall creeping in, yet the bright yellow Converse bring it all back to some summer fun. It’s like an outfit mullet – business on top and party on the bottom. I loved her accessories: bright white watch, bedazzled rings and oversized silver hoops. Ingrid. Great look…and the cutest giggle.

i love our city. that being said, it never hurts to get out of town, and see some place new. my friend andria, from emerald city sightings, recently spent a month traveling across europe. when she twittered that she was seeing some amazing style, i thought… i want to see some amazing european street style ! so i asked her to take some pics, and she could guest post. she captured so much of her travels through her lens, and i’m happy to have her posting here daily for the next week… although this is seattle street style, i think a week long differing perspective, especially around this change of the season, will be an inspiration to all of us. thank you to andria for taking the time to bring a piece of europe back to us… n+t


from Andria…

Why is it that European fashion is just so darn beautiful? That, I will never know. What I do know is that a simple Seattle girl sure can learn a lot in just a month abroad; about myself, differing norms, and of course fashion. Bold, classic, rich and simple – all qualities I would assign to European style. Effortless, however, is the one qualifier that explains it all. Within days of my arrival in Sweden, I was raving to Kam about the style, so she gave me the go-ahead to gather shots from each city I would be in over the next month and share them as a guest blogger on Needle+Thread.

It may sound a stretch, but I could have used people from each street I walked down; although I managed somehow to whittle it down to a simple seven. All different cities. All different looks. I had a great time meeting these folks – each of which, were more than pleased to share their style with a simple girl from Seattle. I hope you enjoy them, the fashion, flair and maybe even incorporate a little into your own wardrobe.
