Occupation: Marketing at the Huffington Post

In spite of Groundhog Phil predicting an early spring, I still see no signs of deviation from the current conditions of absolutely Baltic.  That said – New Yorkers, particularly those on the Lower East Side, are certainly not forsaking their style in the face of some weather adversity.  Just ask this gentleman, who I caught up with on the corner of Delancey and Allen (where we both mutually exclaimed our love for the noodle bar Cocoran across the street).

There’s something quite luxurious and sassy about that fur hoodie, which was what had initially caught my eye.  The more I observed, the greater I appreciated his sense of aesthetics and dress.  Slim fit is definitely my favorite look on men… and this cutie certainly rocks it to the max.  That chic, versatile man-bag he’s toting around?  Love.  I’ve been trying to convince hubby to wear a man-bag for years, and sadly it’s not working.  Of course, swoon even more over his way of layering with attitude – dude makes it all look so effortlessly gamine!
