Rush hour in the Meatpacking District is a vibrant affair. From corporate-types hurrying to happy hour and commuters heading to the subway, to camera-toting tourists photographing the wonders of New York and the creative class ending their workday, the intersection of West 14th and 9th Avenue attracts people of all stripes.
Every so often, though, a fashionable quicksilver character will appear in the sea of sameness. The fashion-forward New Yorker in black and white was gracious enough to stop and finish her cigarette before entering the Apple Store. Wearing a monochromatic ensemble and a pair of stylish loafers that took my breath away, she exuded style and a subtle fierceness beyond compare.
