We've picked the highest-ranked Street Scenes subjects of the past week from Racked LA and Racked NY; now you decide which coast has the best style.
On the left, we have our LA contender Erika (36.4% Perfection!/11.7% So close/9.1% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/42.9% Who did this to you?) wearing a vintage hat and shoes from the 1920s and a dress which was a gift.
On the right, we have our NYC contender Stacy (54.2% Perfection!/36.9% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/8.9% Who did this to you?) wearing a top and a blazer she bought at a thrift store, Chaiken pants, Aerosoles shoes, jewelry she made herself and carrying a bag from The Container Store.
