    Generally, I would say this is a no, but in this case, the long sweater underneath the jacket gives the impression of a dress. The dark, flat sneakers are the perfect pairing for this outfit. Also, I love the way french women go around with their hair oily, it’s so much healthier.

    So I guess Converse-like shoes are popular in Paris as well, thats good to know.
    The dress underneath is fantastic, however I’m not crazy about the fabric of the jacket she’s wearing.. it almost throws the outfit off for me.

    That many layers would be quite daunting on a date. It’s like a woolen chastity belt…

    Hi Scott,

    Love the different textures and shades of grey, and the button stance on her long sweater.

    I like this. I love the blue and grey shades you’ve used, from the ground to the wall, the layers that envelope her, her funky shoes that anchor it in with a casual vibe…and which also happen to match the wall in a punchy teal.

    I also like the mood it sets. It’s undone and messy, like her hair, but it works. I feel calm looking at it :)

    I am loving these grey posts, the layering of different shades and textures, and the backgrounds play so beautiful into the images. I love how you manage to capture the ‘light’ of somebody so well.

    I absolutely love the wool blazer(?) paired with the dress, and a cardigan. The epitome of comfortable and warm layering.

    This look depicts true blue. The varying shades of blue complimented with the variety of layered textures, especially the jacket. I heart the long, curved lapels of the jacket.

    I like this outfit and the unexpected shoes are very nice. I do wish that we could see the bit of outfit that is under the open long grey sweater. is it shorts or a skirt?

  34. CK Dexter Haven

    Everything but the shoes. The upper bits have an ‘orphan elegance.’ The shoes say Orphan, but without any grace.

    Frenchie, I’m 46 and my Converse lowtops are clear vinyl so folks can see my hand knit socks.

    If I’m ever to old to wear what I want, I hope someone has the decency to put me down (excepting the possibility that I’m wearing spandex to the mall … but I digress).

    Sorry, but no. This just looks sloppy. Did you catch her as she ran out to get a pack of Gitanes at the corner store? Not an elegant look at all.

    The door, on the other hand… what treasures lie behind it? And I love the tones of blue. It looks well worn and well loved.

    absolutely hate converse, under any and all circumstances. they’re not cute or clever
    or stylish or sexy or attractive. they ruin everything.
    get real shoes.

    Well, dear Indigo Warrior, I’m 51, and I definitely leave Converse shoes to youngsters (as well as Chupa Chups :D) Matter of elegancy…

    But “les goûts et les couleurs” is very a very personal matter.

    cardiganlayering is wonderful!
    Three cardigans or four cardigans, that is still a challenge to be looking good though..
