Best Story of the Week…August 22

It’s a drizzly day as I head back home from my run.

A pretty girl in her 30s is standing under the eave of a brownstone perusing her phone, smartly staying dry.

She looks great in jeans with an opened navy blazer, its collar flipped up over a black and white striped French sailor shirt, a beige three quarter trench coat tossed over her arm…classic black flats with just a hint of heel…a nice bear brown tote resting beside her.

I love how her light-blonde hair falls just right in line with her shoulders, as if it came with the shirt.

After my quick, efficient appraisal, she looks up as I’m about to pass, igniting my Tourettes that kicks in, saying…

“Ya look just like a J. Crew ad,” and she says, “Funny you should say that…I’m a sales rep for them.”

“Really, you don’t say?”

Only in New York.

About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Thanks.

    She’s definitely a good representative and you know how to spot them! I love the way you describe her, right down to the flats with a hint of heel. You’re right about ‘only in New York’. That wouldn’t happen here in East Podunk, although we did see a couple of hot foxes in the yard…real foxes.

    It takes one (look) to know one.

    There is always so much going on in that city, that even when it’s quiet, you’ve got stuff like this happening all over the place. Only in New York . . indeed.
