it’s always a pleasure to see photos of what i consider “normal people” wearing everyday clothes. i tire of what i consider “lunatics” who wear silly outfits just to get attention. that’s just my opinion…
Neutrals and scarf colors are indeed lovely, as is her face. But the way the scarf is tied is unflattering to her, and with a wrinkled shirt she seems ready to scrub a floor or strip paint off furniture. Ready to scrub a floor is fine–if that’s what she intends, but for other activities, I’d suggest improvising other modes of tying the scarf.
I love her scarf this way. I don’t know if I would love it on just anyone but she carries it with ease because the rest of her outfit is understated but well-fitting (i’m crazy about the pleated pant). It’s a perfect splash of color.
I like the use of color, but I don’t like the way the head scarf is tied. It’s too Rosy the Riviter and it doesn’t really go with the rest of the outfit. It’s like she’s grandpa from the neck down and grandma from the neck up. I like the grandpa look, but not with the head scarf. Maybe with the same scarf tied at the neck to give a splash of color?
Cinderella before she gets ready for the ball, with her hopeful smile cutting through; damn her wicked step sisters! Is that a mens’ crew neck tee? I work with a girl that wears them under a nicely cut blazer with the sleeves pushed up and they look great. Simple and practical–of course I love it.
hmm…i can’t decide on this. she looks gorgeous and comfortable, but almost like she’s off to wash the windows (except for the chunky bracelet) – one of the few pics that i can’t decide if i like or dislike.
I agree with anonymous that she reminds me of Sporty Spice, love the completely 'normal' outfit, and how she added a kick of surprise & colour with that headscarf! (although I myself could never pull it off)
Having just been to Milan, I wish I’d taken photos of some of the ordinary people and their great clothes. This girl is naturally beautiful, her looks emphasised by the casual, grey/black/white clothing, with a splash of colour. Fabulous.
I have a picture of my mother in the 1940′s with a scarf tied like this on her head. So I kind of like this in a nostalgic way. I also like the fact that this pretty young woman looks completely natural and I don’t believe she was thinking about an audience when she got ready in the morning.
The fact that here outfit is ordenary makes her more special! Her outfit is so simple, but yet, she gets the attention of a famous photografer! The scarf is so special, that the total outfit is nothing but ordenary, I think… By the way, what’s wrong with ordenary if it looks like this, and flatters you?
please, forgive me my mistakes, English is not my native language!
Simply: Charme! Sophisticated without to spend a lot of money (I assume) with a simple touch. She simply has change a common hat by a colorist scarf that contrasts with her very normal clothes . I love her to be among my friends.
i love the “we can do it” nostalgia. i think its right to pay homage to the past…thank you for the revival-when the women had to keep the country and the economy moving back in the 40s and 50s-”the war years”…being covered in motor oil and lipstick times…a yin and yang of masculine and feminine style. AWESOME.
considering the disastrous hair dyeing experience I had yesterday, the “Lucy” style scarf is going to have to become fashionable IMMEDIATELY! Thanks for your help in this process. . .must find more women rocking this, preferably in America!
