Street style blogs are so great. They are great visual chronicles of what’s going on in a specific city or town. I’m not sure why I haven’t dedicated more posts to admiring other people’s style.
So today, I’m branching out and doing a street style recap. Earlier in the week, I saw this stylish gentleman on the train.
I wasn’t too sure about sneaky photo etiquette. I really just wanted to “snap and run“, but it seemed sort of rude. What would you think if you caught a random stranger taking your picture on the train? The word creepy comes to mind…
