Oh my, those green pants do not do this slender lady any justice… bleghk. And the blue shoes are a bit trashy, sorry to say it. I much prefer the sweaters and the other two women's outfits, especially the black heels behind the blue shoes and the blond's beaded purse.
I've been looking for a striped sweater this season, but haven't found the right one yet, and I want a pair of green trousers too. And suddenly they are here on your blog. Nice work Scott! I love the blue shoes too. Those woman really got a look I like a lot. Simple, classic, with an edgy accent. Thanks.
Something unappealing about this. The two women might as well be part of a team in charge of handing out fliers. It almost cheapens the Breton shirt as with anything that's over-saturating the streets. I'm sure they're not too happy about it either.
Stripes again. *sigh* It's going to be a long season.
Perhaps these girlies will now learn not to jump at the latest fashion fad as soon as it is born? I know I would hate it if my best friends and I would turn at a place wearing the exact item of clothing, especially if it is one that it has to do with the latest fad.
Certainly gives the word identical new meaning! Out of the two though, I much prefer the lady on the right with the black trousers. I think somehow she makes the top look a lot more chic, and plus I love her taste in footwear! Those blue shoes are really gorgeous, kind of a geeky retro look. Its certainly an interesting post in which to compare the styles.
Ooh, it's been at least a decade since I last saw a pair of synthetic cargo pants with a faux Oriental symbol embroidered on the seat! Great photo, and I love the tops, shoes and hair, but I just can't love those pants!
While it may be a singular observation (and an eccentric one, no doubt) the first thing that entered my mind when I saw this shot was that it reminded me of a Joan Mitchell painting I saw at the Albright-Knox Gallery last summer. This is clearly one of those great instances where many of us who are viewing this shot are reading it in myriad ways. Some of the commentary has focused on the garments themselves, while others have commented on the setup of the photo. Really, what matters is how the two things work together to create a tableau upon which we can project our own thoughts. This is the wonderful and artful dialogue between the language of clothing and the reading of that language that propels fashion to be born, die and then be reborn again.
i actually prefer the green pant to the black…i feel like boring plain black skinny legs may have done their dash…i am loving black brocade pants… Blatant self promotion coming up… you can check out a pair on this blog
LOVE this images so much: Your images of these individuals' back are always my favorites, whether they be of someone walking away, or like this one. They take the casual snapshot to another level; one that reminds me of the sweet anonymity of the works of Magritte, Cartier-Bresson and Jean-Charles Blaise.
I don't think these are the same tops though… If you look closely, the woman on the right's top flares out slightly at the hem, and there's what looks like shoulder pads. The woman on the left's top is lacking both of these. Similar color and stripe size can be misleading.
My brother and i kinda like almost the same garments….. so we're ok to buy it double… since we do not share.. and the interesting part is… we can wear it at the same time…we never look the same at all… cuz hes like rosed skin tone..dark haired…im more like pale with ginger hair…. hes a square body shape….my shape is more athletic…. so we work that out in a distinct way. so to speak…its not what you wear… its all about how u wear….and im the stripe kinda guy…..
I love how people in Europe dress up. When I moved to States, at first,- It was shocking. American freedom is in everything, including outfit. Sometimes it feels like people forget to dress up in a morning and just go straight outside, without noticing that they are in underwear or sleeping pants.
Those girls on a picture look Hot, dressed up with fashion. I love the picture.
