I love her boots but it's overall a look that is far from classy, in my opinion. (but come on, I like pretty much everything on this site, she seems to know what she's doing, this kid)Caitlin

it's how you wear it.!!!!

not a pretty picture. the run on the legging and the sloppy shoes just don't compute. the leather side next to the skin will feel sticky after a while. shearling is meant to trap air and warmth inside, between the skin and leather.

cute…..also those pics by Polka Dot of you are darling :-)))
September 20, 2009 at 11:11 pm
With a face like hers, anything goes!
September 20, 2009 at 11:13 pm
Without malice, this is too Punky Brewster meets Pippi Longstockings for my tastes.
September 20, 2009 at 11:16 pm
She looks like a whimsical, young vagabond! I will continue to imagine the world hasn't managed to break her spirit yet.

I love her train case!!
September 20, 2009 at 11:34 pm
those boots are amazing. the way it aged is beautiful.
September 20, 2009 at 11:41 pm
wow. so VERY true. and i really really want her boots!!

so true, she's totally working something so simple

She is certainly wearing that coat like it's reversible, love it! And I have a suitcase just like that…different pattern tho, it was my grandmother's.
September 21, 2009 at 12:16 am
Exactly, it is perfect on her! She looks quite adorable.

September 21, 2009 at 12:23 am
With that 'je ne sais quoi' air to it !Goin' toorder your book today Sart !Looking forward to it …
September 21, 2009 at 12:24 am
absolutely adorable — & fantastic suitcase!
September 21, 2009 at 12:32 am
the coat is inventive, but i love the shoes and bag! they are worn so genuinely! (could live without the shirt).
September 21, 2009 at 12:34 am
Stylish certainly, but I don't love the look.
September 21, 2009 at 12:39 am
lovely boots and eyes
September 21, 2009 at 12:46 am
despite your ability to capture a certain something in just about anyone, i still fail to see the loveliness of this outfit!
i'm certain there's someone out there that will love it, however.

I liked this girl, and of her T-shirt too!woooooow beautiful photoshots here!
September 21, 2009 at 12:52 am
She is cute! This is a look that works when you are really young and really beatiful, as this girls is.
September 21, 2009 at 12:55 am
I like her shoes. so worn out and edgy
September 21, 2009 at 12:58 am
so true. this look and the quilted coat below are worn very well by these two. you really know how to pick them!
September 21, 2009 at 1:10 am
I am simply in love your with your blog. I wish you even step foot in LA. There's still fashion people here! lol As I always say you wear the clothes, do not let the clothes wear you.
September 21, 2009 at 1:31 am
I WANT HER BOOTS!
I do not wish to sit next to this gamine on the bus just after a warmish downpour. That is a seriously impractical garment, that coat.
While this look intrigues me, and the elements work pretty well together, for reasons I cannot explain, no.
September 21, 2009 at 1:43 am
i completely did not think i liked this ensemble at first glance, until i sincerely looked back at it and realized that it's a rather unique look.
her shoes, her shirt print, and her expression are a great combo.
September 21, 2009 at 2:25 am
Really love it.
September 21, 2009 at 2:28 am
why did you cut the photo's? Is it because you thought the tights and ripped top were to much?
I know a lot of people who dress like this. She has the right face for the clothes. Beautiful.
September 21, 2009 at 2:42 am
she reminds me of a vagabondand i agree with your quip – it is definitely about how you wear it

Har har har,
you'd think, with that awesome train case, that she'd be able to afford clothes that fit.
It looks like she raided a combination of her lil sister's and homeless grandpa's closet.
But kudos for creativity though. She probably has better fashion sense on a more regular basis than I ever will.
September 21, 2009 at 3:09 am
It serves to prove one should experiment & have fun when very young. Over 20 this would look more baglady than Kooky !
September 21, 2009 at 3:51 am
September 21, 2009 at 4:06 am
Individually, I do not think any of these garments are appealing. Together however, they tell a story and that is what fashion should be all about. Also, how old is she?!
September 21, 2009 at 4:17 am
how taxi driver…
September 21, 2009 at 5:45 am
Love how she had the whole grunge look going on, then pairs it with the sweetest, girliest little suitcase ever!http://fashionpearlsofwisdom.blogspot.com/
September 21, 2009 at 5:58 am
I love it…it sums up British style. Not polished and glossy, but slung together, and intentionally mussed up!
September 21, 2009 at 6:13 am
A completely fantastic jacket, it really looks amazing on her.
September 21, 2009 at 7:44 am
doesn't inspire me, but anything goes at that age – sweet face.
September 21, 2009 at 8:13 am
I just want her bag!
September 21, 2009 at 8:24 am
When you are young and beautiful, you can do everything!When you are 40, you look like aclochard:-(
September 21, 2009 at 8:33 am
She stole Henry Holland's rubbish in that outfit… http://www.viceland.com/fashion/2009/09/stealing-henry-hollands-rubbish-for-the-sake-of-cool-hunting/

liking the boots. where could you get a pair like those?

Awww Sart….as a 40something I can not seriously be inspired by a girl one-third my age. Shouldn't she be in school?
September 21, 2009 at 10:19 am
Can't say that I like her outfit, but I do like her spirit. Points for creativity.
September 21, 2009 at 10:31 am
I was scrolling down, and just looking at her face I could have sworn this was going to be a picture of a 5 year old… a bit unnerving to be honest. Love the boots though.

You were right to take her picture, Sart. What is she – like 12?
September 21, 2009 at 12:57 pm
i want those boots…
September 21, 2009 at 1:39 pm
I'm not a big fan of the actual outfit, but I love that suitcase. It's very vintage-cool.
September 21, 2009 at 1:53 pm
cool! I wore my dad's coat exactly like this in the 80s. I think you have to be quite young for it to work, though.

i love the funky boots!
September 21, 2009 at 2:26 pm
Your words- the essence of what personal style is. So true!
September 21, 2009 at 2:42 pm
Where can I get boots like that? Shes so genuine and perfect! firstname.lastname@example.org
September 21, 2009 at 4:20 pm
She looks so much like the striped and easy girl on Sept 14
September 21, 2009 at 4:27 pm
this outfit rock it !!…only london this is so posiblegreat pics
September 21, 2009 at 6:05 pm
so true! i completely j'adore that suitcase by the way!
September 21, 2009 at 7:24 pm
Right on, Sart.
She's a doll.
Why do older people think she won't turn it back-side-out when the weather turns?
(I did the same at her age and young is adventurous not stupid.)
September 21, 2009 at 8:31 pm
PERFECT outfit. Suits her so beautifully for her age and attitude. Very fetching. Would love to see what she's wearing 10 years from now.
September 21, 2009 at 9:50 pm
wow.. just perfect!!!
September 21, 2009 at 10:06 pm
I know Billie! I worked with her in London, and she has the best sense of style–anything goes. Her personality is exactly the same, never a dull moment.
September 21, 2009 at 10:21 pm
Great shots! She's definitely one of a kind on this blog.I want her brief case!
September 21, 2009 at 10:40 pm
this girl is inspiring.
September 22, 2009 at 2:33 am
I love the shoes and suitcase. It's funny because it makes me realize how young I look. I cannot tell how old this girl is (although she does look young to me) but I feel like I look about the same age as her and I am 21.

I think London will always be my favorite of your cities – such a no-fear, I-like-it-and-that's-what-matters attitude. I wish you shot there more.
September 24, 2009 at 2:21 pm
I love the contrast of the smart, sophisticated shoes in the background. What made you split this into two photos rather than one complete outfit?
(Still I think if I saw this stomach exposing top in real life, I might think it was trashy)

October 27, 2009 at 3:58 am
She's too cute… like the girl in the movie Lolita
November 2, 2009 at 3:46 pm
I like this outfit in separates- not together. However, the bag just makes the whole thing amazing.
November 15, 2009 at 4:39 pm
Great shoes. Where is her mother?
December 30, 2009 at 11:36 pm
She's either 16 or 17. Not sure, but I read her blog. Billie JD- http://www.billiejd.blogspot.com/
