We were amused to read the following exchange with ninth-grader Kay Goldberg in New York magazine's "Look Book" feature.New York caught up with Miss Goldberg on the corner of Bleecker Street and West 11th Street to ask her about her street ensemble.

Q: Where did you get this outfit? A: I got my shoes at, I don’t know, a Converse store? My rainbow tights came from this vintage boutique called Hidden Treasures in Topanga, California. I was born there, and I moved here when I was 4. My mom got the vest for me at this awesome place on Greenwich Avenue called Zachary’s Smile. The parka is from Cover Up on Macdougal Street. Who are your style heroes?
Generally people who care about the message of their clothing. My white T-shirt just looks like a white T-shirt, but it’s by [LA-based]American Apparel, and they have a no-sweatshop policy.

You can take the child out of Topanga Canyon, but can you take Topanga Canyon out of the child...?
