21 Days of Street Style: Day 15, Emily, Sydenham St

It's winter in Philadelphia, cold, icy, and dry. Skin flakes off like paste on a kindergartener's desk. Fashion has been put temporarily on hold. And so, stylish women like Emily are pulling out their puffy winter coats. "I think I got it from Macys," she told me of this one. "My mom got it for me for Christmas a few years ago. But it works for biking." That's the important thing for Emily; it has to be "bike friendly." "My shoes," Emily went on, I've had for a couple of years. I've danced the bottoms out and had them replaced twice. It's my roommate's scarf." Emily is wearing all black in these shots, she explained, because that's what she has to wear to work, but she wears black most of the time anyway."I'd say that's the majority of my wardrobe," she told me. Her fashion philosophy: "keep it simple."
Emily characterizes Philly style as "definitely very unique." "A lot of grunge," she went on, and "everyone trying to create their own thing."
