We've picked the highest-ranked Street Scenes subjects of the past week from Racked NY and Racked LA; now you decide which coast has the best style.
On the left, we have our NYC contender Jill (44.2% Perfection!/14.7% So Close./23.4% I feel strangely ambivalent about it./17.6% Who did this to you?) wearing a hand-sewn dress she bought on eBay, vintage Dingo boots, and a bag from Asos.
On the right, we have our LA contender Elizabeth (42.9% Perfection!/20.2% So close!/14.3% I feel strangely ambivalent about it./22.6% Who did this to you?) wearing Balenciaga jeans, a Martin Margiela jacket, shirts from Sara and K-Mart, Army/Navy surplus glasses, and Nike sneakers.
