WIW to get snapped in Soho

Seriously. I was walking down Spring Street on my way to meet Mr. Suz at the optical shop when a woman with a DSLR camera stopped me and asked me if she could take my photograph for some magazine or blog. I thought she was joking. But no. She said she loved the colourblocking. And then she asked me to pose for her while she snapped some pics. 

In my astonishment, I didn't fully take in the name of the publication. So I have no idea whether the picture will show up anywhere, or when. 

So I took a photo myself in the specs store. 

Note: Every item I'm wearing except my earrings and bracelet has some YLF connection. 

Bag: RL (bright bags being an early YLF revelation)
Shorts: Club Monaco (just like Angie's) 
Sandals: Reiker (Angie pick)
Top: AT silk shell, kindly purchased by a YLF good-fairy and sent to me as a backup top for my gala evening -- not worn then but now getting some play. 

Styling note: this is how I have been wearing silk tops tucked with these shorts...so they blouse over the waistband and look a bit boxy. I don't know if it works, but it feels really nice on a hot, hot day.

    How fun! You are our celebrity now, Suz!
    Love these shorts on you and I think wearing top like this is perfect with them.

  • replied 8 years ago

    Well I'm not surprised one bit! You look great and I love how you tucked the silk shell. YLF!!

  • replied 8 years ago

    Good for you! You do look striking, and I love how you are wearing the top with the shorts.

  • harmonica replied 8 years ago

    The effect of YLF noticed on the streets! :-) I understand why because you are a style icon and this outfit is so easy, simple, modern and chic.

  • Vildy replied 8 years ago

    You're going to cause a rush on that color and those shorts when the photo shows up somewhere.

  • Debora replied 8 years ago

    I'm not surprised you were stopped on the street! You look so modern and fresh. We will have to scour the net now to see where you turn up. Have a wonderful time in the city and give Zap and Nancy a big hug for me!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 8 years ago

    Well no wonder Ms Gorgeous! This is a fashionable, modern, crisp, minimally fantastic outfit. I like the way you're wearing the blouse with the shorts. 

    Can I have your autograph?

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    LOL, Shannon. Thank you all for the nice words! If it weren't for YLF that surely would never have happened! 

  • shevia replied 8 years ago

    Wow! That's so exciting! But you can't remember the name - what a bummer. Maybe someone will run into you on-line and let us know. You look fab for Soho, or anywhere at all.

  • Isis replied 8 years ago

    Very cool!  And no wonder; you look effortlessly stylish!

  • pil replied 8 years ago

    How cool is that? You DO look terrific!

  • replied 8 years ago

    That's so cool, Suz!

    Yay!  I love it!  

    I've been wondering about bright bags myself lately....  (Come to think of it, both my red and white bags qualify as "bright", don't they...)

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    I think it had "business" in the title. Business woman? Business style? Not sure. Sort of ironic, since I am hardly a business bombshell, here or anywhere else. But maybe this outfit does look business-like? I guess it would be appropriate in some offices. The kind that locate themselves near Soho, maybe? 

  • donnat replied 8 years ago

    You do have that look of sophistication, I can see why she would want your picture.

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    Yes! Lots of cameras taking snaps in NYC all the time! Of course you were snapped!

    You're so cute - both inside and out! LOVE your outfit and the way you blousson-ed the shell :)

    Hope you're having a wonderful day! Did you know you're in 4th July colours? Fun! xo

  • Beth Ann replied 8 years ago

    Ooh!  You're putting those new sandals to the test with NYC walking!  Love the Independence Day nod with the colors --- so thoughtful of you, Canadian sister!  Did you find any new beautiful things in the city?

  • Suz replied 8 years ago

    I found some very beautiful things. They are called Mochi and Zapotee!! :-) 

    And yes, these were my "pre" Independence day colours. Today I wore a different version. Fuchsia was my "red." And blue and white dress.

    Fun! Am I allowed to say I knew her before she was famous?

  • Eliza replied 8 years ago

    Lovely, fresh outfit. YLF provided some inspiration, you took it all the way to Suz-ville and now NYC celebrates you, too. Great look and well earned appreciation.

  • rae replied 8 years ago

    Awesome! I am not surprised at all. I bet you'd get snapped plenty if you lived.bb in NYC.

  • replied 8 years ago

    Oh Suz, what an amazing story. Well, the photographer clearly saw what we see, you look sensational!

  • Lovely Laura replied 8 years ago

    Not surprising at all.  Everytime I click on one of your posts with photos I think you are so put together and refined.  You are one stylish woman!!

  • Karie replied 8 years ago

    Fabulous and fun!

  • Debbie replied 8 years ago

    Love this look. I understand why they wanted to take your picture. Hope we find out where it's posted.

  • Joy replied 8 years ago

    I love the color blocking too and can see why you stood out in the crowd in NYC. You look stunning.

  • Mona replied 8 years ago

    No wonder you were photographed in that outfit. you look absolutely gorgeous in those blue shorts with the blousoned silk shell. 

  • replied 8 years ago

    What! That's incredible! I thought from your title that maybe you were having publicity shots made in Soho. Very cool Suz. Hope you're having fun. :)

  • goldenpig replied 8 years ago

    You've got fabulous street style, no wonder you got stopped. It's your striking presence and warm personality as much as the outfit! Love the cobalt shorts and colorblocked sandals.

  • Parsley replied 8 years ago

    I would stop you to take your picture, too, if I had a street style blog, Suz! I'm not surprised at all!
    I love your simple but colorful outfit!

  • TraceyLiz65 replied 8 years ago

    What a wonderful compliment and a well deserved one!
     I so want to be the woman who stopped and made your day... I forget to take my camera, but have business cards ready to pass out  when I finally do get to do it! 

  • catgirl replied 8 years ago

    If you're surprised I guarantee you're the only one!

  • ironkurtin replied 8 years ago

    You look lovely, enjoy!

  • Vicki replied 8 years ago

    Suz, I LOVE this story and you look so GORGEOUS!

    It just goes to show you the power of YLF and how fantastic it must have felt to be stopped in the streets, like that, by a street blogger, who knows fashion.

  • biscuitsmom replied 8 years ago

    You are so lovely and stunning it doesn't surprise me at all :)

  • hedgiehog replied 8 years ago

    Well I can see why she stopped you! The outfit, and more importantly, YOU, look great! I'll be keeping an eye out for your lovely photo. :)
