Not digging this kinda mangled look goin’ on right now – reminds me of a period in the 80′s when i drew a blank on fashion and reverted to a uniform of black for the remainder of the decade. I still fall back frequently on the non-colour , but that’s what 15 years in NYC will do to a person. This current love of “individuality” in my humble opinion, looks like too many grownups got lost in the Burning Man dress-up box. I know what Burning Man looks like ‘cos I have a couple of kids who are Burners…my son programs BMIR, their Radio Station…Hoping a strict discipline soon returns to the Runway. Tailoring, Elegance, etc. I do love a little Fairy Tale Romance – think Alexander McQueen, but messiness? Non!
She’s writing it all down…how to create the “raid the attic ol’clothes chest look” for beginners…and those ankle boots…just perfect for strolling through Paris and hopping on and off the sightseeing bus…and don’t forget the tourist-trap cap which completely pulls the look together!
I don’t feel comfortable with judging or mocking someone’s choice of clothing, especially when I have no clue as to their intention. All I’ll say is that I doubt this photo or the clothing it captures were meant as something to aspire to.
I always find it surprising how worked up people become when they see something that does not comply with their personal aesthetic, and how deprecating and angry some of their comments are. Why not just delight in all that diversity and celebrate the fact that we live in a society where this is possible?
I’m not reading a lot of anger but rather questioning and discussing. I also think that most “commenters” delight in the diversity and the fact that they are able to have a discussion about such relatively trivial matters as fashion choices; relative to the political and social travesties taking place worldwide.
The very fact that this discourse exists is a luxury and something to be grateful for.
I completely agree with Lynne . Elegance is something else and I guess watching her walking is even worse in terms of elegance. Moreover I never like doing this kind of thoughts but when you’re in your twenties looking shabby is fine. When you’re over et’say fourty the same look comes out to be sloppy and just lets you say: “why!”? Instead of “wow!”
I suggest that the ugly boots would look better with the beautiful grey skirt & black bomber jacket whereas the sneakers would match better the green coat !and then both ladies would look just regularâ€¦but then they wouldn’t have caught Scott’s attention…
Kind of depressing all the negative comments. Before I read them I was thinking how cool the woman in the green raincoat was. That she was an inspiration for those of us (all of us) who are getting older. That her eclectic vibe was fun and irreverent. Do I love the platform boots, maybe not what I would choose, but I dig that she’s rockin’ them! Fashion is supposed to be fun people – seems like a lot of by-the-book fashion police on this one.
