Union Square Street Style Report

We just couldn’t stop thinking about fashion after this magical week of style, so we decided to bring you a fun street style report from a local freelance writer to keep the fashion fun going. Nance Howell explored the streets of Union Square and found that there were some pretty stylin’ folks here, so she decided to get the inside scoop on their fashion knowledge.
