today i am super excited to share my first set of street style photos! i finally overcame my fear of approaching strangers and decided to share some photos of the fashionable ladies i see in my daily life. so if you were every wondering what the bay area girls wear to the alameda flea market, here is a little snapshot for you! i have more images, but i still haven’t figured out exactly how to share them with you! at first, i was thinking that i would just share one photo per post, but then i thought it might be better to share a set since i have so many other posts going on here… maybe i haven’t ironed out the details, but i hope you enjoy the new feature! and expect to see more soon!
Lovely! Wish I looked that good in tight pink pants:)
Love the pink pants and leather jacket. Might need to try something like it!
Good pics! I am noticing a shoe pattern (menswear inspired) casual and touselled hair. Love it!
those pink pants are fucking fantastic!!
Awesome! I love the simplicity of the last look. I’m so glad you’ve started this feature!
Very cool, great job with the photos!
Great job! Love these!
I collaborate with a street fashion site and it’s always so difficult for me to approach strangers! even though most of them are cool about it, some of them still say no and that feeling sucks!
anyway, I’m glad you took these!
nice shots! i’m loving the pink pants one. you’ve got an eye! cant wait for more
those pink trousers are pretty awesome :) and i love the last outfit too xx
I always think the Alameda Flea Market fashion is unrivaled. Great picks here. I don’t understand why anyone would be upset for someone complimenting their outfit and asking to take a picture. Sounds fun!
hehe, you are so right! i get so shy, but the reality is that it’s always a nice compliment when someone wants to take your photo because it means you have great style! it’s kinda silly for me to get so nervous about it!
You did an amazing job Erin!
thank you, hannah!
this is really cool. i would be way to nervous to ask people!
Those are great! Ive always wanted to do that! How did they react?
everyone was really very nice, actually. i think i was the most nervous about it because all of these ladies were so sweet!
so cool! I love the little shelf the girl in the last pic found :)
Hi! Just added your blog to my “blogs I haunt” blog scroll. Congrats on the street pics, it is hard to walk up to a stranger, especially a well dressed one! Just started my blog, and think you’d like it! Check it out here:
So great! As an aspiring photographer, I deeply respect anyone who can ask strangers for photos. When I go on my own street photography runs, I’m very hesitant to approach my subject. Not to mention I also love these girls’ wonderful outfits!
thank you! ;)
Thanks for the great post!
Those pink skinies are delightful!
I love this new feature, street style photos are always so interesting!! Good on you for building up the courage to ask :) I would be way too shy haha xxx
these photos and ladies are gorgeous! i love the bright pink pants!
OOO what a great addition to the blog! these ladies are very adorable and well put together. hooray!
thank you!!!! :)
I’ve been on the verge of doing this for a while.There’s a market held here monthly and I’d missed a few, and now it seems everyone realllly dresses up. There were even some full-on lolitas!! Which is sorta rare for Brisbane especially. Maybe I’ll gain confidence and just do it!!
Great job btw :)
yay! i hope you try it out! it’s nerve wracking at first, but it’s actually very fun in the end! good luck!
OMG did you take these pictures ? The colors, the light, the girls : everything’s perfect !
See U !
I’m so glad you’re doing this. San Francisco is one of the best dressed cities in the country and definitely has its own unique sense of style. Kudos for overcoming your fear, too!
thank you!!! :)
Love that tunic dress!
Love the new feature, always a joy to see some nice streetstyle shots.
Hey, I’m going to have a booth selling TONS of vintage clothing, shoes, & accessories at the Alameda Flea Market next Sunday. Not sure what booth # I’ll be in yet, but I’ll have a pink pop-up canopy. I’ll also be at Treasure Island this Saturday. Please come by! It’s my first flea market. If anyone wants updates on my booth #, send me a message or look me up on twitter/FB.
oh, how exciting! i will definitely be there!
These are great! I especially like the last one with the girl showing off her rad flea market discovery. It really describes the situation in a fun way (tee hee, stuffed tiger). I’m looking forward to seeing more street style pics. You have a good eye!
Awesome job! It gets easier to approach strangers, so keep it up.
Awesome! I’ve just started photographing strangers in the street in this way too and now just have to start sharing them! Yay for street photography!!
