It’s spring!!! Shed those tights! I’m SOO tired of seeing this look. On the “carry all” 1. Lose the excessive bag. Can smaller size purses come back please! Women have got the whole SUV syndrome going on with these purses (the bigger the purse, the bigger the…well you know).
2. What color is that purse??? BROWN?!?! Mon dieu!
I do however like that confidence in the outfit.. THAT is definitely what makes it work.
OK, I agree that she is clearly toting her Wilhelmina/Next/Click book in that Chloe-esque bag but, come on, Sart: you really think that’s the main reason she’s got it? Function? Naw. She looks great with or without the bag but is carrying it because it’s oversized and, therefore, of-the-moment. Oh, models.
I’ll always love a big bag myself and I’m no model. I don’t like to be at the mercy of trends OR the weather OR basic necessities so I always have water, something to read, something to write in, a scarf or cardi and so on. self-sufficiency is hot.
Maybe she’s just carrying the bag because she thinks it’s cute.
She looks great. Unfussy but interesting. I live in Southern California, and I’d rather see a bunch of girls in this outfit than the interminable mini flouncy skirts and flip-flops I see all year round.
Beautiful, beautiful girl. What I like about her is that not only the whole outfit is beautiful, but there is not a single thing that is a trendoid eye-sore. Even the big back and the slouchy boots that might look as trying too hard on someone else, look great on her. 10 out of 10.
OK before I saw all of the posts that knocked her big bag, I thought to myself: “Hey, here is a girl that has a lifestyle like mine. She works, she has some kind of job that makes it necessary for her to carry all of her stuff in that super cool bag.”
She is like me.
Only, alas, I am not a model!
But my point is, there is something special about the look that resonates with me. I think it’s the functional quality of the slouchy boots. It doesn’t look like she is trying too hard, in other words.
She wants a look that is pretty, yet edgy and comfortable at the same time.
Somehow, I think if the bag matched her boots, all of this “ease” would be lost and she would be trying too hard.
Not a super huge fan of the makeup, but that outfit is sweet. I’m completely loving the bright blue/brown/black thing she’s got going on. The huge bag makes it better because she’s appropriately dressed for what she does all day.
agree with the first anonymous. i love seeing these for the sense of beauty and style and grace and enthusiasm that is a thousand times more vivid on these real people than can ever be emulated by a stephen meisel vogue pic. i love these real people, even when there style/taste is not mine (and even more so when it is not in fashion right now) and if i get a little inspired by their passion too, that is fantastic!
