One of the things that came up when I interviewed Tay for this style profile is how important comfort and attitude is to personal style. Tay owns some awesome designer pieces but what makes his style unique is how he confidently mixes pieces in an unconventional manner and makes them his own . Tay’s personal style was a result of his upbringing in Hawaii/LA and also his time spent living in Tokyo.
You may have seen Tay on many a streetstyle blog before in the past and after meeting him I can see why; Tay isn’t afraid to experiment and try new things with his style. I’m happy to share with you some of his favorite summer looks and also his unique perspectives on style as an individual who’s worked in a variety of roles in the New York fashion industry.

While many of my friends own designer goods, their everyday lives are far removed from the images of luxury that brands flaunt in magazine advertisements or perfume commercials. I know many who have hustled to own the clothes they love, whether through using friend’s discounts, buying at consignment shops or lining up for sample sales. This photo series celebrates anyone who’s saved or sacrifice to live everyday in New York a bit more stylishly.
