Chic On The Street: Buenos Aires Brenda

Spotted leaving Buenos Aires Fashion Week at La Rural: Carolina Hornos channeling “90210” legend Brenda Walsh in her prime—healthy, slightly rebellious and the very best of early ’90s Americana all in one spunky little package. Vest from Rapsodia, belt from Tabatha, skirt by Complot, and boots by Ricky Sarkany. Like Brenda way back when, Carolina…

Chic On The Street: Buenos Aires Fashion Week!

Let’s talk about friendship. Friends who go to Buenos Aires Fashion Week together, stay together. Or in this case, pray together. (Left to right) Mariana Choo, 27, Christina Hwang, 25, and Sophie Park, 27, met at church and are all originally from Korea. Guess which cutie is the fashion major (Christina, grey dress from Korea),…

Chic On The Street: Creative Casual

We adore Belen Sozogni’s colorful and free-spirited style. A painter (of course!), she pulls together her pink cardigan, green pants (from an Indian clothing store at Plaza Italia) and patterned purple top (from a store in San Bernado La Costa) in a fresh new way. Hey, we think her idea of comfort — perfect for…

Chic On The Street: L-O-L-A Lola

Buenos Aires’ Palermo Soho is teeming with busy cuties like Lola Torres, who was walking briskly to work when we begged her for five minutes of her time. We’re just totally feeling how that bright strawberry dress warms up her skin tone, not to mention that punchy bag (we even like her delicate calf tattoo).

Chic On The Street: A Handmade Shirt-Dress

Florencia Broussain, 22, was strolling through the San Telmo antique market when we got a load of her darling shirt-dress. Florencia, a Chilean design major, told us she made it herself. This young lady must love street purchases—she thinks the scarf around her waist is from another antique market, and is certain she bought her…

Chic On The Street: Not Your Ordinary Buenos Aires Tourist

We stopped Anna Crittenden, 23, exiting a shoe store. Initially, she protested about getting her picture taken, saying, “I don’t look very good.” Nonsense! This chick — originally from London and visiting her bro in Argentina–looks like she rolls out of her bed gorgeous and trend savvy—especially with that vintage Chanel bag (from a flea…

Chic On The Street: Nadia’s Statement Pieces

While scoping out the local art scene at Nassau’s own Popop Studios (in the decidedly untouristy Chippingham neighborhood), we spotted Nadia Campbell, 33. More specifically, we were fixated on her tricked-out coral and wood choker. Turns out she made it herself, and works on her own jewelry line in the same building as the gallery.

Chic On The Street: Nassau Tomboys

Best buds (left to right) Kachelle Knowles and Khmia Poitier are all about comfort. These College of the Bahamas art majors take all the same classes, and are sometimes on campus until midnight. Which is why they wear pajama bottoms and t-shirts under their coveralls they scored from the Red Cross. They even cop to…

Chic On The Street: Bahamian Eyeshadow

What’s blue, pink, gold and a total cheerfest? We’re thinking Blair Grey is. Strolling out of poli-sci class at the College of the Bahamas, Blair caught our eye immediately with an unexpected color combo on her eyelids (she scored the shadow at Icing) and that adorbs zipper motif tank by Max Rave. This social work…

Chic On The Street: Neely In Nassau

We found Tyrina Neely, 24, standing out at Bob Marley’s 60th birthday celebration in Nassau, Bahamas. She’s both sleek and flashy in high-waisted jean leggings, a short and natural ‘do, great big accessories and snappy gladiators. Looking stylish is actually her full-time job: She runs her own virtual fashion network, Primadona.

Chic On The Street: Guess The Queen

We did a serious double take when we spotted none other than fashion icon, TV star and queen of all drag queens, RuPaul stepping out on the town in a rather stylish, yet masculine suit with a lovely mint scarf for an added pop of color. And damn, those legs really do go for miles.

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Bondi Beach Local

You’ve got to appreciate this true devotion to the neighborhood: Denby buys everything that she can in her hometown of Bondi Beach to support local friends and businesses. Her frock from Funky Femme looks in bloom among a sea of bikinis and cutoffs. Don’t you wish she was your neighbor?

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: A Sydney Classic

With all the “Trendy Wendys” out there, here’s a quick reminder that a classic is always in style. Abbey pairs all black accessories with an adorable white mini dress from the Glebe Markets. She looks pulled together and timeless. Channeling Coco Chanel can never be a bad thing….

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Bondi Beach Bleach

Thanks to Marc Jacobs’ fall show, the mother trend of the ’80s — acid washed jeans — is back. When I saw the models come down the runway, I lived in fear of the coming street translation. But Olga here has put my mind at ease. Her chic take on the revived look (Theory blazer,…

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Snakeskin In Sydney

Leopard, zebra, even giraffe … Animal prints are all the rage in Australia at the moment. But the king of the jungle might just be this sizzling, snake print mini from Zara that Melissa here is wearing on her way to meet an old flame in Sydney. Seductive, no?

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Rocks Off In Sydney

It’s always thrilling to see someone who is not dressed exactly like everyone else. Lorna set up shop at cool local shopping destination The Rocks Market, and sells her own line, Lolo Garnier there. She’s wearing her designs from head to toe. I’m loving the way the leggings make her look like a fashion plate…

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Sydney Vintage Style

Nicole’s look is the perfect blend of Aussie: part cosmopolitan city, part rugged outback. It turns out that this city girl is an avid fashion hunter, discovering both her hat and skirt at a vintage shop.

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Breezy In Sydney

A maxi dress on a summer day gives a sense of easy, comfortable style. Alex, looking like a hybrid of Penny Lane and Marcia Brady, wears a General Pants maxi dress. It’s one of the best we’ve seen Down Under. If you don’t have a cool breeze at your disposal, might as well look like…

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: L.A. Airport Style

Shanel, snagged outside LAX, looks both comfortable and fabulous in a New York City screen-print tank and silver Dr. Martens combat boots. The pop of pink on her American Apparel bra and luggage tag iis a sure sign that this girl is ready for some fun. Talk about traveling in style.
