    I love the socks and shoes; I love the jacket and dress(?). But I don’t love them together. One of these things is not like the others.

    I would prefer to see the hosiery and shoes with a different outfit.

    Very cute! Great legs!!

    If only all the rest of us had legs like this…. knee-high socks need legs that are essentially cylindrical, and not the slightest bit conical. How much I would love to wear the Prada knee-high socks of this season, it would not be right to do so.

    But I wonder how they stay up at all. After all, a big part of this aesthetic is the slouchiness.

    Knee socks are always great. I love these. And look at her beautiful hands and nails. I feel bad about what is going on under her eyes. Like she hasn’t slept in 3 weeks. Doesn’t matter though, pretty girl.

    I love seeing socks in these pictures. They’re a great and underappreciated accessory in my area and I’ve gotten so much inspiration from the occasional sock shot on this blog that I’m just dying for the temperatures to drop so I can start working them into my outfits more often (though here in Florida, we’ll be lucky if autumn weather is here before Christmas songs start playing, blaaah).

    The slouchiness of the socks, elf shoes, and mismatched jacket add just enough scruff to this outfit to make it cute and casual, but I’d love to see her dress this up on a different day, if just because the socks and bag are the same shade of grey beige and it intrigues me so I wanna see her work that angle! I do like this as it stands, though. I’m a fan of deliberate scruff.

    We can’t see much of it because of the jacket and bag, but is it just me or is that shirt/dress/thing an awesome piece?

    She is a model for sure and a pretty one too.I donĀ“t find her outfit interesting with the socks and the slippers.The only good thing is that she uses blue,which suits her well.

    Would need to see this while she’s standing.

    Doubtful as to whether it would change my personal opinion, however, as there’s a disturbing connotation to the acceptance of the sexualization of girls whenever I see a woman in knee socks and short bottoms.

    Fashion as politics and gender issues?

    Who knew?

    there’s just something about this girl. try comparing this photo to the shot of lisa airan a few pictures above (black, white, magenta rodarte suit a few pictures above). this girl has paired together all the “wrong” elements and it looks quirky and fantastic. whereas airan is wearing beautiful pieces, all perfectly matched, and she looks atrocious.
