Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

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 Bea (50.1% Perfection!/ 20.4% So close/ 14.3% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/ 14.3% Who did this to you?) wearing a tank that's part of her uniform for Nespresso, an American Apparel skirt, and flats from Payless. Her earrings are from South Africa, she bought her sunglasses at TJ Maxx, and her bag is from Guatemala.

On the right, we have our NYC contender Sarah (62.5% Perfection!/ 24.9% So close/ 6.3% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/ 6.3% Who did this to you?) wearing a dress she made from a vintage skirt, a bag from Iro, shoes from vintage store No. 6, and a Fenton bracelet.
