It was in winter that this fellow first appeared on
The Chattanoogan. His pared-down-for-summer
look is no less well considered. Today he chose a
classic Pearl Snap shirt and sneakers by Alife.

Her frock by Isaac Mizrahi reminded me of all
these great looks from Target, even to the very
first posting.

Soon an anonymous browser's mouse click will be
recorded as the 20,000th viewing of this blog. Who
better to put it over the top than this veteran, whose
first appearance drew four comments?

A Signature Look

IMG_3737
One of the pleasures of 'blogging street styles
is revisiting people. Back in December of 2008,
she was the subject of The Chattanoogan's
17th posting. Today our paths crossed, again. 320
'blog entries later, city cycling remains an important
theme, along with living the mantra: 'reduce, reuse,
recycle'. As before, another pair of much-loved
slippers join an upcycled skirt, this one from LEO.
The bandana favors her coloring, finishes the look
as would a necklace and provides a resting place
for her autoharp pick.

Leopard print meets liriope, which is not a grass
for monkeys but a relative of the lily. She keeps
cool in a blouse by J. Crew.

The world seems to be divided between those
who thrift and those who do not. Lucky is she
who found this red polka dotted dress in Texas
and the crocheted bolero at the local Goodwill.
Even her cruiser came with a past.
