What'cha Wearing? Real Style in NYC

I tried to fight it but just couldn't any longer. So, I finally gave in to the urge of taking pics of fly folx on the street and posting them here on PPT. Ya know, finding out who they're wearing, what they do for a living and the like. Time Out New York was the first publication I recall doing this over a decade ago and now it is all over the blogosphere. It's not quite a 9 Questions For... (I will continue with that by the way) but a more organic, hey I just stopped this person on the subway kinda thing. As usual I'm aiming to put my own unique spin on things. The truth is, I am surrounded by way too many stylish people (both known and unknown) to not take a stab at this.

Kicking off What'cha Wearing? Real Style is a woman who understands that fashion isn't to be taken too seriously. Doesn't her blinged out Bugs Bunny tee shirt just make you wanna smile? Find out more about it and the rest of her look below:

Name: Qimmah Saafir

Hometown: Bronx, NY

Currently Resides In: Harlem, NY

Age: 27

Profession: Writer (Check out her dope blog here!)

Spotted: In a Rockefeller Center office building

Tee Shirt: Zara (was purchased about a year ago for fifty bucks or so)

Skinny Pants: H & M (purchased last year)

Shoes: Patent leather Birkenstocks

Gold Satchel: Botkier for Target (was purchased in Atlanta on a recent weekend trip)

Handcuff Necklace: Boutique in Brooklyn (check this site for a similiar style)

What made you put this on today? I wanted to wear a tee shirt that had some character to it and a character on it. (laughs)

Who's style are you feeling right now and why? Lately I'm into the style in the UK. Tee shirts worn under vests with skinny jeans, Converse sneakers and a fedora. [I'm into] comfortable chic.

Why did I wait so long to do this? What'cha Wearing? Real Style is going to be so much fun - HA! Especially since I stepped into 2008 this weekend and purchased a digital camera.

I don't even know the way I ended up here, however I believed this publish was once good. I do not realize who you might be but definitely you're going to a
famous blogger for those who are not already.
