Very nice, not to girlie, down to earth I-know-my-ways statement (for me fashion is communication of identity, of how-I-feel-today and of context). I myself love capes (I still wear an old, dark grey yamamoto one dating back to 1996) with long gloves. The bag is a young interpretation of the Birkin. Just the Jeans, fine, young style, ok, but this new and destroyed chique is not mine. The shoes fit perfectly to the fashion statement.
I don't know if it's the fact that I'm headed home for break soon or that I just pulled an all nighter to get my lab report done, but this young lady reminds me of my sister. The lace-ups and the ripped/cuffed jeans are very similar to an outfit she has. My sister also has this kind of cute awkwardness where she's just learned how to walk in heels, and she'll balance herself just as this girl does with her toes pointed in. Lol. I love how relatable your photos are, Scott.
its so romantic , so stylish …brings me tears , how come people are soooo fanstical when it comes to style ? this is simply perfect , the cape , the jeans , the bag , the shoes , the colors , the structure everything …style overdoze !!
"I am drawn to every aspect of this ensemble however I don't want to choose one thing. It all looks good, together."
I completely agree – very well put together. Love the shoes and the bag – they work really well together. Not a huge fan of the torn jeans look – but it really works this time – brings in a bit of humour almost (along with the gloves). The cape is gorgeous.
I noticed you have a lot of chloe, LV and celine featured in your blog as well as others. I'm curious as to why no one else is covering more men's designers that have come out with their recent collections? Are they not as good or just not the all-the-hype right now?
I just can't get over the dubious appearance of a Birkin when I see those Mulberry bags, or, more lately, the spitting image of the Proenza PS1. As a huge fan of being able to watch the trickle-down affect from high fashion to street fashion, I think it's misleading to package something unoriginal as a high fashion peice. I would be a huge supporter of the brand if their prices were half as much as they are, but since they've placed themselves on the level of Hermes and Proenza, It lead me to wonder if they're trying to get away with anything quality-wise in the same way they are with their designs.
Oh the shoes!!! i love that color of denim paired with the camel/brown cape… Plus the grey gloves give it a beautiful contrast. BTW, has anyonw thought that the fact that she is a brunette has a lot to do with the beauty of this pic? If she was a blonde this color scheme would be totally different.
Too much brown goin on… this is soft enough to bore the crowd…. next time just add a color that wont match… and somehow… it will match… she gives good face though… HAAAATE THE SHOES! bring us 2010..bring us paris…
I love how all of her pieces have strong characteristics :) but yet, she combines them and pulls them off together effortlessly! and Mulberry's Alexa bag!!! omggg and those Chloe booties are too adorable.
yes i notice it is the girl from cherry blossom too! woah i think ppl who read these kind of blogs kinda read simliar blogs so we know who she is!! did the person that take the pic know its her or it is coincidence he just saw a girl on the street and it's her?
