Street Style, Chicago spring 2011

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to attend and co-plan a roof top party, which requested guests to wear hats.  I am still riding on the fumes of the royal wedding, so this opportunity was a dream come true.  At the party we set up a photo backdrop where guests could be documented wearing their hat, its the type of thing photo dorks do when they throw a party.

Anyway this gentleman was a guest at the party, who didn't wear an outlandish hat like Princess Beatrice, but did have many elements (arm tattoos, hat, puffy fox tail), which when combined made me take notice.  This whole idea of "the elements in one look" is interesting to me because take away the fox tail or the hat and you have just a plain shirt and jeans. Now add back the hat and fox tail and you can get a sense of the individual.  I have found that is what interests me the most in documenting street style the coming together of elements, the choices an individual makes, and how that combination can begin to express a personality. 

So bravo fox tail man, I salute you.
