Atlanta Street Style - Sort of

It just dawned on me that here we are posting street style photos from all around the world (see previous post) while completely overlooking Atlanta style. It's true that this city isn't known for its fashion and there's no Sartorialist/Face Hunter equivalent in the southeastern U.S., but Atlanta has character. Nowhere is that more evident than the annual Little 5 Points Halloween Parade.

Last weekend we were busy cleaning the Beltline and hanging out at the Decatur Beer Festival so we missed out on the parade. Thank goodness for The Little Five Points, Atlanta Flickr group! They have some amazing images from the event that will give you a good idea of Atlanta street style - at least the kind of street style you'll see on one day out of every year in L5P.

The Village People were sporting some nice footwear and I covet that skeleton man's scalloped, black umbrella.

I really think the Seed and Feed Band's baton twirler (the one wearing the tiara) is the most talented guy in ATL - watch out, Baton Bob! To the right is a very elegant blouse worn by a not-so-elegant man with nice lashes.

A couple fashion items of note in the images below: red accessories are clearly in and scooters are the must-have of the season/year/decade. I have a feeling the scooter craze has just begun...
Ah yes, Atlanta fashion at its finest.
