Those shoes are wonderful, and they keep this outfit young and fun, but she should be careful with how the vest flares out along with the skirt – because a total slumping shape will give anyone a bit of a dowdy silhouette.
Cool girl and style in deed: great attitude and choices. This is one of those images that vindicate your vision of the power of the anonymous style. I do think you have different audiences, and I like the mix between industry (style.com) and this your original site. People are just difficult to please when being open to interpretation. I appreciate the openness.
As I was not present I might disagree with you. She has that Lisa Loeb vibe going on, intellectual-nerd-cute thing, but the akward stance throws me off. She could be a thinner Ugly Betty but I do like the red shoes.
I love those red shoes. The rest of the outfit…meh. I know it is intentional, I know it is ‘fashiony’ and is playing with proportion, texture, and aesthetic expectations and all that. But the horizontal lines hit her in all the wrong places, the sweater vest looks like I rescued it from the bottom of my three year old’s dress up box, and to top it off, the skirt is obviously difficult to press, because it is so wrinkled. I can appreciate the effort, just not the result.
There are the red shoes.They are cute.But thatÂ´s about all thatÂ´s cute in this picture.The girl with the white dress has made a bad mistake wearing black leggins with Donald Duck shoes.Not very fashionable nor esthetic .
i luv this one!!! finally one person view that ‘the coolest’ means really the coolest. to be really comfortable in yourself. period. no agyness, no kate, no frills. straight punch. if i could score, this shot alone would give you an a+ on my list, sartor.
I really love this look, especially the glasses. I always want to get quirky glasses, but haven’t found any that I like. I also have a pleated skirt like this that I haven’t worn in a while. This may help me pull it out of the closet.
Overall, I like the ease of her look — I can see why you call her “cool”. The shoes are gorgeous, but I’m not sure about the vest — it looks like fun fur. I’m also digging the woman with the black shoes and socks combo behind her.
I found this site a long while ago. I love the pictures and I learn sooooo much! It is helping me find some of my own style.
But I have to admit that I am stymied by this picture. Is it me? Do I need more training? More Sartorialist?
This young lady seems out of proportion – the vest length with the length of the pleats on the skirt make her look wide in the “saddle bag” area. The sleeveless top combined with the texture on the vest seems top out of balance with the length of the skirt. The color choices seem disparate to me but that is purely personal taste.
So I guess I better study here some more to make sure!
The footwear in this photo is weighty, heavy, and spunky. The idea of the nerdy glasses with the red Mary Janes is a fantastic move. And the texture of her vest compliments the sheen of her skirt. This is a smart, sexy, bookish look.
Has the girl on the right had such a hurry to PradaÂ´s that she pulled her dress the front side to the back or what? Obviously the hurry was real cause she forgot to pull her socks up and comb her hair too.
My favorite part is the little bruise on her right leg. It says, “I’m real”. Lord knows, that’s the statement I pretend I’m making when leaving the house in a skirt over a bruised shin! That is the sort of thing that makes her cool, but not “too cool”. A good thing.
I like her style; she has a nonchalant air about her. Her glasses are cool and proportionate to her face. I think we have the same face shape. I wear small, rectangular glasses and I think they’re too small on me.
She has great style. She also faces the challenges of dressing for her somewhat thick in the middle body.I certainly hope she is watching her diet so she can continue to be a healthy and happy person. A great job of hiding what needs to be hidden, and spot lighting her assets!
i think she looks horrible, the skirt its too big, the hair its not cute, she wants to look like as she was a little girl, im sorry but i really hate it. i really like the picture but i dont like the outfit.
