PHILLY FASHION FRIDAY- PRETTY IN PINK: The Nail Files Reality Star Katie Cazorla & Random sightings

Originally I was going to run this 2 weeks for my first Philly Fashion Friday Column, but I just didn’t have the space:

Sometimes when I walk around Philly I’m noticing more and more ladies are looking stylish no matter what the weather is or outfit they wear even if it is delegating by their religion. All these photos were taken on that super hot 100F Thursday 6/12/11. I just haven’t had a second to post them.

Today the subject is pink.

Look at these fabulous shoes.
Isn’t she pretty in pink
I know my niece loves her pink. Pink clothes, room, and cell phone.

OK that may be purple, but I love this shot
a sea of pink
Did she create that jacket?
A knee brace does not slow this women down.
Hello Philly
