Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #64 - Natalie
Natalie's outfit seemed rather simple when I first saw her walking past the window of my favorite Starbucks, but it caught my attention and proved to be very well thought through. The NYU student was wearing a quilted leather jacket from All Saints over a flannel shirt she got from her sister and a Zadig et Voltaire t-shirt. From the waist down she was dressed in Topshop jeans and ankle boots. The highlight of Natalie's outfit had to be the little vintage Chanel purse she got from her mother. With the brand's typical quilted stitching and a golden ball charm a beautiful vintage piece to finish off her rocker-chic look.

Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #2 - Stacy Dreyfus
She got her sense of style probably from her grandmother. That's what Stacy Dreyfus is telling us at least at the end of our video. The fact of the matter is that Stacy really knows what to wear this season. We encountered her with a colorful dress of French Fashion Designer Catherine Malandrino. It's just awesome.

Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #73 - Nayza Ayaz
Nayza's outfit was just perfect for a still-a-little-chilly spring day in New York. The fashion blogger (check out her blog at www.FATWardrobe.com) was wearing a beautiful blue vintage fur vest over a simple sweater with a pair of J Brand snake skin print jeans and studded ankle boots by Zadig & Voltaire, giving her look a little rocker-feel. She accessorized this look with a chic cream colored Miu Miu 'coffer' handbag and jewelry she found at Bloomingdales. Favorite part of the look: her cream and black limited edition RetroSuperFuture sunglasses round it off with some retro.

Streetsstyle New York: Dress of the week #68 -- Mana
Mana made heads turn, walking down the streets of Soho wearing a cute spring outfit and a very unique handbag. The business and marketing student from Tokyo, Japan was wearing a faux-fur and leather vest by Zadig et Voltaire over a Brunello Cucinelli sweater with a white collar peeking out. Some acid washed jeans from Topshop a pair of knee high Stuart Weitzman boots complete the look. Accessorized with some Rag&Bone retro style sunglasses Mana created a cute spring look. But what would that look be without her showstopper Bao Bao handbag by Issey Miyake? Inspired by Japanese origami, this bag is truly something special.

Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #75 - Jennifer Wang
One of my favorite looks is an outfit consisting of rather somber colors with one single pop of vibrant color. Therefore Jennifer's look was exactly what I am into. On her shopping trip through New York's SoHo she was wearing a beautiful crème and black leather jacket with zip-off sleeves over a simple Helmut Lang t-shirt with J Brand chinos. Jennifer was walking on red soles, sporting a pair all over studded Louboutin oxfords and finished off her look with -- and this is where the pop of color comes in -- an eye-catching electric blue clutch by Comme des Garcons.

Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #59 - Misselle Tai
Misselle was on her way to business school, when I stopped her in Williamsburg. She was wearing a Comptoir des Cotonniers camel hair coat with matching Lauern Conrad pants a Club Monaco blouse and a Johnstons of Scotland scarf. She topped off the look with a beautiful pair of Reed Krakoff pumps and a Bordeaux Gym Bag also by Reed Krakoff. The most stunning peace though was hidden under her scarf -- a beautiful vintage Coach necklace. I just love Misselles elegant business style and the color mix of camel, black and a pop of bordeaux. The perfect look for a merchandising manager.

Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #7 - Lana Belasco
Isn't she a dream in red? We encountered Lana a couple of days ago on her way to a cocktail party. Unfortunately she didn't remember where she got her adorable red costume, including the very fancy handbag. The dress might be Barami. The retailer currently offers a dress that looks very similar to Lana's. Regrettably you can't order it online. But if you are in the mood, stop by at the store at 57th and Lexington Ave. It's still there. We checked it out yesterday afternoon.

Tobi's hairstyle was just amazing. It reminded me a bit of Margre Simpson only more fashionable! He was wearing a baggy 3/4 pants made by himself and a long military-style double breasted coat along with Marton boots. I really liked his outfit - it was definitely something you wouldn't see so often.

Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #14 - Starshell
Well, it's been a little while since our last Dress of the Week. That's because it's still freezing oustide. At least in New York City. Nevertheless, some Fashionistas don't care about the weather. They just put on their enchanting Gucci boots and coat and combine it with a matchy Yves Saint Laurant scarf. Congrats Starshell, you are really the Fashion-Star who lights up these miserable and dark winter days in NYC. Keep it up.

We just couldn't resist to tape Luke a couple of months ago. We met him backstage at Couture Fashion Week at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York.

Look at this beautiful Alexander McQueen coat that Lindley Arnoldy was wearing a couple of days ago when we meet her in SoHo. The writer of her own blog "The Flip Side" chose the perfect streetstyle for a chilly day in Manhattan. The fur hat matched her wool sweater and she decided to put on these nice leather leggings. Of course her outfit wouldn't be completed without her vintage Chanel handbag as an accessory. Well done Lindley!

I met Katherine, a NYU student and big Yves Saint Laurent lover on her day off of school out shopping with some friends. Wearing a beautiful black and white ensemble she stood out of the crowd. Katherine was wearing an edgy white blazer with a sharp shoulder line over a Saint Laurent top with a pair of Rag & Bone spray jeans and beautiful Chanel oxford shoes. The favorite part of her outfit was clearly her classic duffel bag by recently renamed Saint Laurent Paris, a beautiful piece easily paired with any outfit. Top off the look with a pair of Christophe Tom Ford sunglasses and you have the perfect outfit for a day out in the city.

It's getting a spicy fashion mixture if Italian classic meets French Couture all worn by a fiery Brazilian. Alisa Petrovich showcases this mélange every so often on the Streets of New York City. Dressed in a black Roberto Cavalli Shirt and Alaia Paris Shoes the Theory skirt and DKNY bag completes her international look perfectly. It's elegant, luxurious but with a grain of effortlessness. 'Just to keep the style,' as Alisa says. Keep it up, as we would answer.

Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #74 - Luisa
A military jacket paired with an elegant bright red handbag and somewhere in there a peace sign... Sounds like a great outfit to me. Luisa was wearing a green and black military style jacket with red details over a "Polite as Fuck" T-shirt with some Rag & Bone jeans. Her velvet slippers from Stubbs & Wooton with an embroidered peace-sign on one and a marijuana leaf on the other, represented the more relaxed side of Luisa's outfit. Her sharp, red Céline handbag was the perfect choice to finish off this outfit with. It is a great contrast to the military jacket in earth tones and makes the look interesting and edgy.

Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #70 -- Alexandra Turner
When Ali told me, that she was a print designer I was really not surprised considering that she was wearing a big and beautiful all over floral print MARNI coat. Her love for textiles and prints showed again in the printed dress she was wearing under her coat and her scarf by ELIZABETH HEWITT ISTANBUL - one of her favorite textile designers. Ali accessorized her look with a simple but elegant CELINE classic bag, which is perfect, balancing out the prints of the rest of her outfit. My personal favorite of Ali's outfit was her green suede slippers from CHURCH'S again showing the love for textiles and giving her outfit one last finishing elegant touch. I hope the cakes were tasty and enjoyed in style.

Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #71 - Insung
Insung imported some Korean fashion sense to New York. For the springy weather she went for the layered look of a beautiful Dries van Noten kimono style jacket that she belted over a graphic Dries van Noten blouse. Functional but still fashionable was the thick Lanvin cardigan she was wearing hidden under her jacket. The leather skirt by Marc Jacobs that Insung was wearing gave the whole outfit a little rebellious touch. She finished off her look with a clutch she found at a thrift shop, matching the color of her jacket. I love the silhouette and color palette of this look and am always happy to see a combination of high end designers and vintage treasures.

I can not get over how much I love Loraine's look. Her rocker-chic style is right up my alley. She was wearing a sharp cut, off white biker jacket from Zara over a faux leather oversize Rag & Bone sweater paired with some J-Brand jeans and Kurt Geiger chelsea boots. One of the many highlights of Loraine's outfit was her Alexander Wang handbag made of perforated leather - simple but edgy. To round off her look Loraine accessorized with a pair of Oliver Peoples retro sunglasses. All together a sexy-chic combination of black and white.

But the real eye-catcher was definitely the catchy red Robert Talbott tie and the way he was wearing it with a Vintage pin from the 40s. Congrats Donald, we couldn't have done it better.

Streetstyle New York: Dress of the week #6 - Ivan
Ivan didn't tell us his last name. Maybe he couldn't decide if he wants to be Ivan Gucci or Ivan Dolce. He could easily claim to be one of those designers, because he is wearing Dolce and Gucci from tip to toe. Except his handbag. This piece is from Bottega. But we'll categorize it certainly into the same high end fashion level. Chapeau!
