Plus Size Street Style

 Love this ladies retro Mad Men style!

I found this great blog the other day which I wanted to share with you. As a street style photographer myself (I've shot for various publications both online and in print over the years) I'm really impressed with this blog. Its called The Manfattan Project and showcases amazing style of plus size ladies in New York City. This is one of my dreams, for there to be a record of the great style of people of all shapes and sizes, and this blog achieves that. I've always been cautious, perhaps overly so, of not offending people by asking them if I could take their photo for this here blog. Some people may not react so positively to me openly saying they're fat if you know what I mean. I already know how difficult street style is to capture as people are shy or wary of having their photo taken by a stranger, especially for online. Anyway I'm really excited to have found this blog, even if it doesn't seem to have been updated in a while, its great inspiration to me to go out and try and take some shots for this City Chic blog, I guess there is no harm in trying right?

I love the cute floral print dress teamed with black and white brogues.

 The top she is wearing is such a unique print. A great casual look for shopping.

So I ask you, would you let me snap you if I saw you on the street?
