Philadelphia Street Style: Kelsey, 10th St

Kelsey is an illustrator and recent graduate from the University of the Arts. She described her style to me as "classy punk," to which I asked, "Does that mean you listen to a lot of punk?" "I used to," she answered, "but now I class it up a bit." Here, that translates into "some Navy style" jacket with an H&M scarf and a pair of cat-eye sunglasses by Ray-Ban. She has "no idea what the lower half is." 

Lately, she's been listening to a lot of "doom wop," the musical hybrid of doo wop and doom. I asked if she could name a band for me, since, frankly, I was having a hard time imagining what that would mean. She suggested Mister Heavenly. I just got through listening to a couple of their songs. I like them pretty well, but I'm still having trouble discerning any doo wop influence.
