Bellissima, NYC streetstyle

I admit, sometimes I do have bits and peaces of prejudice in me. Like that day when we stopped in a cafe in Soho, right next to a shop selling Italian furniture and homeware. The lady selling the stuff was this beautiful, graceful woman of Asian descent. I couldn't help it,  I kept staring at her... You would kind of expect her to be in Chinatown, selling smelly fish or strange vegetables, dressed down, with her long hair up, simply in a different place and life. But there she was - beautifully aging and styled out of her cultural context. I mean, I do not know anything about her life history, but just seeing her for a short time, it got all these images running in my head. I love surprises like this :-)
