On The Streets: Noe Valley 4-16-10

We chose Noe Valley for this week’s “On the Streets” photography session for several reasons.  We had a baby with us and what better place to fit in than amongst the steady traffic flow of strollers along 24th Street in Noe Valley.  In the late afternoon, the sun lighting along 24th Street illuminates and is perfect for photography.  We needed a coffee pick-me-up and what better place than Martha & Bros. Coffee on 24th Street.  Plus, from seeing our pictures, you’ll see that Noe Valley draws a variety of people.

We loved the hipster style of Medina Kuhn,  a costume designer in SF for people in the performance industry.  She is wearing a hat from H&M, her own t-shirt that she made, Old Navy jeans that she cut off, and Saucony sneakers.

We love this look.  The shorty shorts are sexy and the red jacket gives the outfit a great pop of color.  Maria Chavez is wearing a beautiful velvet jacket from Ambiance and black suede boots from Nine West.

 Her earrings are from Ambiance.

A casual and polished look.  Natasha Rempe, the store manager at Ambiance, is wearing a top from Free London, jeans from Skinny, boots from Nine West and a charm necklace from Ambiance.

We were drawn to the elegant jewelry worn by this woman.  I turned out that Jenny Windler works for Gallery of Jewels.  She is wearing a necklace by Cara Ucci (green garnets), earrings by Vanessa Mellet, and a top from Bangkok Clothing Company in Berkeley.  

We loved the unique look of the ring.  We found out that she also makes jewelry and this is part of her design collection.
The printed musical notes on the top of this woman stood out to us.  Kymberly Waldon is wearing a shirt that she bought from the Goodwill downtown, a skirt from American Apparel (that she slashed), tights from the Vermillion Lies vaudeville performer friends of hers, and shoes she happened to find on the street.
Cool tattoos are one of our favorite accessories!
She likes to mix match single earrings.  She’s wearing a feather earring she received for her 21st birthday from a friend and a long dangly earring from the Button Box in Noe.

We met this adorable preppy looking baby, Luka, and his father, Andrew Weiner, at the Noe playground at 24th and Douglas Street.  A popular park in Noe, where you could always find stylish parents and their children.  
Andrew is wearing a top that he bought online at Alternative Apparel, pants from Comune and classic eyeglass frames from Spectacles for Humans.
The printed design of this knit dress stood out to us.  Claire Winterton is wearing a dress from Aqua at Bloomingdale’s, tights from Georgiou, and gold sandals she bought in Australia.

Overall, we liked how a lot of people wore clothes they bought locally at Noe Valley stores.  Comfortable casual was definitely the look for the relaxed afternoon along 24th Street.
