As we’ve all learned, I’m a Fulton Mall junkie. I just can’t stop, won’t stop this affordable and stylish lifestyle. I hopped on over to my preferred shopping strip to hopefully find some threads that won’t make me want to jump into the dreaded East River the second I leave my A.C., and while I was there, I decided to take tips from the street by checking out what the ladies were wearing right now. Take a look at what I found.

Name: Tamelia

Shops in: All boroughs. Queens, Brooklyn Manhattan. Doesn’t have a favorite store. Just sees things she likes!

Tamelia opted for a stylishly flowing flower sundress and flip-flops. Her sleeveless dress shows off her tattoos. The sandy tone of her purse was a nice offset to the blue in her dress.

Who knew you could wear a sweater in summertime? Not me! Though I doubt I’d look as fresh as Femia does if I dare tried. Karre also looked hot-to-trot in her splattered jeans, and they both kept it cool with open-toed shoes. Also, can we talk about Brittny’s bows for a second? The bomb-dot-com.

Name: Tammy

Shops at: Macy’s, Sears

Tammy went for leggings and a comfortable floral top. To amp up her look, she chose some killer accessories, including large statement earrings, a sick watch, and neon manicure with an accent nail.

Name: Vicki

Shops at: Union Square

Vicki kept things simple and comfortable with her sunglasses, shorts, and never-too-tight leopard top. I liked this look since the color of her shorts and leopard print made things edgy. Also, sunglasses, a life or death choice this time of year.

Name: Kizzy

Shops at: Forever21, American Eagle, Rainbow (my favorite!) for everyday basics

Kizzy looked killer in this easy to throw-on Maxi dress. Though simple, the stripes were quite colorful making it exciting. It also was sleeveless and airy. So basically, the type of must-have in everyone’s wardrobe.

Shops at: The Fulton Mall

Okay guys–this is very important! It was Mumbi’s wedding that day, and she was ridiculously gorgeous in her dress. It was a very classic, Grecian look paired with a statement necklace that made her look like an absolute Goddess. I can only hope to be this flawless on my wedding day. I’m going to take a tip from Mumbi that in a summer wedding you look your best by wearing a comfortable, simple dress and let your beauty shine. Congrats to Mumbi!

So what did I learn?

Open shoes are key. Let your feet breathe.

Flower prints are always fun!

Now’s your opportunity to wear something loose-fitting. Sticky is icky.

Don’t over do it. It’s a dessert out there. And by desert I mean humid heat pad full of exhaust from cars and the bus and boiling concrete. So STAY COMFORTABLE, and bump up your look with cool accessories and prints instead.

  1. It was very enjoyable. I like seeing reg people treated special. The photographer got every one to pose like a pro & bring out their inner beauty. not an easy task by randomly asking people on the street. The only replys were about spelling! I learned alot about fashion.
