THIS PAST week my Street Gazing eye has taken me out of town, to New York for the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center. I checked out the runway shows, attended lots of parties and most importantly, checked out the street styles of New Yorkers. I spied celebrities, fashion magazine editors, bloggers and many fashionistas rocking their sky-high, red-soled Christian Louboutin heels, Hermes Birkin bags and statement shades. The best-dressed gentlemen wore patterned overcoats that were easily complemented by scarves, hats and wing tip shoes. Fashion week proved you don't have to be inside the tents to see great style in New York City.
