    She’s just so cool. Do you think maybe you could just follow Andrea around and take a photo of her every day? Thanks in advance.

    I’ve been going back and forth on whether or not to chop off all my hair. This is swaying me to YES.

    Who is that woman in the top photo – looks like my friend Andrea from high school. Smashing.

    I’m afraid I don’t get it: is that the same person? And the picture on top is named new look? If this is the case: a new look is not always a good look… That hair doesn’t suit her particularly well, together with that top it looks lost. Lost in a new look, maybe…

    Well, both her looks are pretty fantastic! The shoes in the “new look” are just so good! She looks so comfortable and oh SO chic.

    I’ve been going back and forth about getting a cool short bob as well. This might seal the deal.

    A haircut like that makes a woman look polished. Whereas there was nothing wrong with her “look” before; NOW it is striking.

    I like the slouchy-ness and the (lack of) color. And what I find really coincidental is that the same pair of grey skinnies unifies the two.

    On a side note: How do you remember that it is the same person? Do they tell you? If they do how to remember which one they were?

    The young beauty a glance, her shoes look like spit-shined wingtips. I can’t tell for certain, but wouldn’t that be cool?

    I had NO CLUE this was the same girl until I read the comments! But I am really sad she cut all her hair off, I liked it much better before. Both are amazing looks though. The jacket in the bottom pic I adore.

  18. not that Andrea :-)

    May 25, 2007 at 12:08 pm

    Different look, same old jeans. Very interesting lady, refreshing look. Kudos to Andrea

    oh man, the short hair really changes her. i’ve also been debating on whether or not to cut my hair. it’s a scary decision. ok, maybe that’s a sign that perhaps life is really good.

    i really like her summer attire. it’s perfect for a city like san francisco. where our summers are, kinda chilly.

    its the same girl, and sadly the bottom picture is the old one. i like both, but the second one is seriously the most brilliant collaboration of clothing i have ever seen. it changed the way i looked about clothes- i literally sent that picture to my whole family in awe haha.

    love the shoes, love the attitude, not really feeling the frock. she looks like maybe she’s about to sit down to get her hair cut. but it doesnt really matter, she’s got such style . . .

    She is absolutely amazing. Either way, she exudes confidence, a sense of humor, true personal style, and a willingness to push the limits while still staying true to herseslf. These are two of my favorite looks that I’ve seen on the blog- she is daring, but not over-the-top or vulgar. Rather, she is elegant and modern.

    Yes, Andrea’s got a great sense of style, and fantastic shoes in both photos. I remember the (Ferragamo?) wingtips from winter, and love her peep-toe boots too!

    I don’t think it’s necessary to say if the first or second
    look is the best. She looks amazing eather way!
    Also its great seeing people with great style change to an other cool style, that is still their own look.

    I remeber the wintery look she had and it really inspired me. I love the combo brown leather with blue, and her three quarter jacket and the hole overall look.

    Congrats you cool girl!

    I love her cold weather pic. That’s actually one I’ve copied to my desktop for inspiration. I like the clothes on the new one, but she looks ‘colder’ with that hair. Maybe it’s just the pic. Love the jeans as a staple, she looks great in them!

    OMG, she looks totally different from the other picture. She’s such a chameleon.

    She’s gorgeous in both photo but I like the long hair better on her.

    Unbelievable style.

    In the bottom pictures she is dressing the scarf the same way of another woman in you pic, and exactly the same shoes of another of your shoots.
    Sart, she has been reading your blog quite a lot!
    I like her new style, more original.

    I can´t understand the great interest people have in the cheap brands like HM etc.These clothes are generally poorly made and you can see them on everyone.Neither can I understand the IKEA boom in the interior decoration business.Maybe it´s okay for parents to buy cheap clothes for their fast-growing kids.but I can´t understand adults buying and storing crap in their closets.Would it not be wiser to buy less.You then could buy quality-clothes that fit your mind,souland activities.

    Wow, she’s a stunningly fashionable girl but I really don’t like teh new look on her. The hair cut and sunnies do nothing pleasant for her facial features where she looked lovely before..

    Wither way, I’m very jealous of the skinny jeans – I think I look too much like a 12 year old in them. I’d love to be able to wear them like Andrea does.

    Andrea looks terrific both ways but I am drawn to what I assume is the new (easier to cut hair than grow it…we wouldn’t have seen her for years!!) Strong, confident, fabulous rock & roll look. Love the vibe.

    Oh, I believe I should have called this piece of cloth a handkerchief rather than a scarf… Anyway, it is worn around the neck and is brilliant for someone who suffers from living in a hot place!

    I don’t get it. Other than the haircut, she looks exactly the same in both pictures, right down to wearing the same pair of jeans.

  62. Jessica M.

    May 28, 2007 at 2:52 pm

    I liked the before a little bit better – just because there was a certain young freshness to all that hair (particularly with all that smile). The layers also look less studied.

    But, of course, if she works in fashion, cutting off the hair and going for a more ‘serious’ look could be a very intelligent professional choice. The old picture made me want to hug her, and sometimes being huggable is not right for your job.

    She wears the skinny jeans so well unlike the usual teenage way of wearing it i.e. T-shirt and skinny jeans.
    She has true style.

    I love the first look but it makes her look a little “bitchy” and a bit too pale. Think the second look suits her better, looks healthier and happier!

    it’s so interesting to read these comments and hear what HAIR says about a person. People have been saying basically that long wavy brunettes are warm, short bobs are cold. I am definitely partial to the old photo (I think it’s just because I adore the layering and the textures) although I wouldn’t say she looks cold with the new haircut, it’s a more mature look, the bob definitely makes her look older. But not cold. Maybe more authoritative and sophisticated, and the earlier post is more fu-loving.

    How is this related to the post? Also, I can’t stand snobs like you who think everyone’s as wealthy as they are. If I didn’t buy from IKEA, I wouldn’t own furniture. I think it would be nice if you wrote less and used quality words and proper punctuation.

    She looks as though she has a winning personality (in both looks). Looks younger and more relaxed in the older; looks sleek and polished (but not foreboding) in the new. Change is fun–good for her.

    I agree with anonymous 1:09.
    Even if you do have money, the truth is if you are chic and truly have a sense of personal style, you can make cheaper pieces look just as fashionable ( if not even more so) than expensive ones. It doesn’t take any peronal style at all to buy overpriced clothing and wear it to death; what does take style is creating a look that’s versatile and fashionable with pieces that are high end, low end, or both.
