For the second time this year I dropped by the Pop SouK pop up shop, this time hosted at the Standard Hotel.  I partially go to peruse through the maze of avant garde clothes, shoes and jewelry, but what I’ve noticed is that this is really a place to show your best club kid outfit and get your booze on, so this last time I took advantage of the opportunity and brought my camera to capture some of the awesome fashion action.
Men and women show up in the most outrageous borderline costume like ensembles, emulating anything from lady gaga-ness to S&M and bondage.  This eccentric group of people come together thanks to Lady Fag, a NYC nightlife personality.
 The first time I shopped at Pop Souk I scored an Adidas X Jeremy Scott fringe hoodie for $50.  It was a good day.  This last time I found a silver vintage ring I really liked, but even better than my purchase, I got to hang and chat with some pretty awesome fashionistas and artists and took a few pictures.

Emily of the blog Sidewalk Spectacle took my breath away as she was not only dressed in a very unique manner, but was also in pretty much all vintage, with the exception of her shoes (an amazing pair of kiltie heeled loafers) She looked so well put together, going for a head to toe monochromatic autumnal color palette I could not have put it together more stylishly myself.  Her hair and her glasses (beautiful shades of rich red) also a perfect touch.  After checking out her blog, it turns out her and I shared similar paths leading us into the fashion sphere, both attending Hunter College for degrees in psychology, later realizing that we were ignoring our passion for fashion (yes it’s cheesy, but true!) and went to FIT for a more creative degree.  Small world.  Anyway below is my film shot (Pentax k1000 and 400 Kodak film) of this awesome vintage muse.

Outfit Notes:  If you love Emily’s fox stole you can buy a similar one here.;  and how about that amazing burnt orange pant suit? here’s a similar pair.  We certainly can’t ignore her adorable printed blouse.. a similar one here.
