Street Style: ‘Be Yourself, Dress How You Like’


For this installment of “Street Style,” we caught up with New Canaan’s Lauren Palladino, who owns The Candy Scoop (down the side alley at the top of Elm Street, right next to New Canaan Music) with her sister, Megan. As always, many thanks to our Street Style subject for participating in this feature. Here’s our chat:

New Canaanite: How would you describe your personal style? Lauren: Definitely comfortable, classic, neutral tones. But I like color as well, especially as spring is approaching.

Street Style: ‘A Nice Pair of Boots Is Key’


For this installment of Street Style—our second, after catching up with Lucy and Poppy from Jolly Old one week ago—we talk to Tori Caserta. She’s a Stamford resident who has been working since around Thanksgiving at Pimlico, a “Unique Chic” home furnishings, fixtures and accessories shop on the corner of South and Elm. New Canaanite: What are you wearing? Tori: I’m wearing women’s brown Timberland shin-high boots, Madewell jeans, a Fossil black belt, a Madewell shirt and a blue blazer. How would you describe in one phrase or sentence your own style sense?

Street Style: ‘Fabulously British’ Lucy and Poppy


Here’s our debut installment of “Street Style,” where we stop someone walking in New Canaan who clearly gives thought to how they’re turned out, and put some style-related questions to them. Today we cornered British-born Lucy Ewington and Poppy Cracknell outside New Canaan Library following a New Canaan Chamber of Commerce event. They’re general managers at British clothing outfitter Jack Wills—Lucy here in New Canaan and Poppy on Nantucket (she’s visiting newly landed Lucy at the moment, helping her get set up). Here’s our chat. NewCanaanite: What are you wearing?
