this lady looks marvelous. you capture the best eccentrically stylish pictures! (i’m remembering the seriously stylish milanese lady from last year who wore black socks & birkenstocks.) & the little bit of blue paper in the window! perfect.
This registers as a “don’t” to me — the straggly hair, unflattering proportions of the top and loud plaid bermudas, fringe-laden designer bag, and Birkenstocks…no, no, no! The Marni look is not for everyone.
This photo symbolizes the courage it takes to simply be yourself! I am looking forward to reading the comments that will be posted about this one, but I for one love the top, the shorts, the bag and the shoes. It just would never have occurred to me to wear them all together!
I think she looks divine. Everything she is wearing is so exactly what she should be wearing that it just makes small minds rebel. Not that just anyone could do this. You have to be the real deal to make this sort of outfit sing. I smile every time I see this.
i dont like how she has combined the pieces together. i like the top, but with those pants and especially those shoes she looks like she was going to some hiking trip and than forgot to change. And I dont even mention the bag.
Following your selections has definitely made me more observant of style, and the fact that I don’t always understand what you’re getting at just proves how hard it is, how much care it takes, to be really well-presented. They also demonstrate the importance of a well-proportioned body, good posture, and a great smile. After that, style is just the icing on the cake.
i feel like she woke up in the morning and said, i want to wear this dress AND these shorts — how do i make that happen. i love it, because that’s how i like to dress myself. personally, i would do the hair very short and where some thin brown flip flops,. but, she see seems to be doing her own thing and i appreciate that.
i TOTALLY LOVE this look! so freakin’ original, real, etc. except… and i usually don’t have excepts… but i SO just wish the rest of the dress was tucked in at the waist. i know it would make her waistline lumpy but still… it’s just bothering me, the way it is in the back. but i love everything else – the sandals, the bag, the stripey pants, the hair, everything!!
Love her. She looks like herself, which may not be fashionable in the conventional sense, but only because she’s not trying to be conventional. She’s outstanding. I get the sense that she’s beautiful, smart, confident, eccentric… all at once. Notice the details of her amazing bag, red lipstick, and immaculately painted nails. How can anyone confuse her to be tasteless or a bag lady is beyond me. You know that she plans her appearance each day as if she’s writing poetry.
How wonderfully sacrilegious she is!! Look at that face – she knows exactly what she’s doing & she’s enjoying it enormously. I’m sure she’s imagining all those gasps of horror and outrage. Now there’s the confidence of age.
I too think that a smile like this changes the outfit – the way an oven turns something inedible into something you want to have more of. My favorite post subjects are those who dress inventively to express mirth.
My first thought is that she was asked by Sart to tuck in the dress (kind of like Doc Severison showing the lining Pah-DUM!) Now I don’t know. Well? Do tell!
Also thought think she is smuggling some rockin but not cobblestone-freindly shoes in that bag. I often carry a pair of Birks when I have to run tons of errands between work and dinner. If she has foot issues, that’s smart – though, granted -there are cooler Birk styles.
I’ve been wearing shorts under slightly longer dresses all summer, with sometimes just a peek of contrasting shorts showing below the hemline. So comfortable and easy plus you don’t have to worry about those odd gusts of wind. I think her’s is a very spirited, self-confident look.
i loooove this one i love how her hair is done, how she smiles, how the pants and the dress matches and how the top is tucked in. I also love how the background matches i wonder how the outfit would look when its windy -the same person who says when igrow up
