    Ha. I used to skip school and go to kawaii. The red scarf as a turban kills me.

    I love all the hints of red and brown (mashed with black) in this picture!
    The red headscarf to patent black leather gloves…
    Red hair, pale skin, freckles… to red scarf!
    And both gals are wearing faux fur! :)
    classy <3

    I LOVE these two. Skipping school not to smoke on corners but to have a fabulously stylish cup of tea. Adore the fur, the vintage scarf on the red head, the brunette's lipstick, and both of their inspired headwear!

    Part of being a teenager is trying to pull off a look and just not getting it right.
    Experimenting is the fun part and as people get older, sadly they lose this. I hope these girls never do!

    these girls are super stylish. I like the kind of gipsie/hobo/hippie/hype style the red haired girl is wearing (BTW, love her hair!)
    The hat and scarf totaly make a statement and give her a unique style.

    I love the saturated reds against the rich dark textures. Were they really high schoolers playing hooky? I wonder if they usually wear this offbeat dramatic style, or if it was a special teatime dress-up. I wouldn't have had the courage as a teen to go about like this regularly, but as a fun outing with a trusted friend, sure!

    Love the look of both girls from the head scarf, hair cut, lipstick, shaggy black coat of one to the hat scarf and coat of the other. :)

    Cute would-be sophisticates. Their self-consciousness is endearing. I'm guessing/hoping that today is the first time they've ever played hooky, and that they just want to know what it feels like so that they can return to school with some great material for poems and maybe songs for acoustic guitar.

    There's something painterly about the color and composition of this image. I can't put my finger on it, but I'm reminded of something from Manet or Degas.

    In both cases it's the fur collar matching their hair – this is the thing here! Not only the colour but also the texture. This is what makes their look so special. Headpieces and coolness, radiant red accessories also add to it, I admit. But it's mainly the tipped black hair with matching tipped black fur, and soft red hair+soft fur in reddish-brown colour… Great!

    Pump up the reds a bit, Sart?? The scarf and the turban are popping more than I'd have thought realistic in that light.

    Reminds me a little, inevitably, of that film *Heavenly Creatures*… and of being 16, and feeling like anything–absolutely anything–was possible. Imagine how exciting it was for them getting dressed! The giggling in front of mirrors, the slight teetering on their heels (what are their shoes like?), the smell of vintage clothing…

    to the comment three or so above mine, i know them too, they go to my school and it is nice to see them on here, but… it takes some of the mystery away, the ability to draw your own conclusions and to make up your own story behind their lives when you already know theirs.

    but, yes, they are always like that, and yes, i envy them immensely.

    They are super-fab (and the photo itself is wonderful, too). They're living reminders of why the elements of style matter–we can create, and re-create, ourselves, at least visually, by ruffling through the closet. And for many of us, playing with style is or was a crucial first step in becoming the people we wanted to be–we could actually SEE ourselves in a new light. Since clothes can be changed and makeup washed off, we could safely take that self for a "test drive" by going out–perhaps for a cup of tea in a cool cafe. :) And, over time, we could build the courage to make that self an ongoing reality.

    Though I hope they don't ditch too much school–being smart and well-read makes on even more fabulous…

    I've been seeing turbans everywhere. It must be because of that Paris Vogue editorial. You know the one with Freja Beha and Lara Stone. The one with Daria Werbowy on the cover in that Prada chandelier dress. Was that Jan., Feb. or March, maybe?

    Lovely, lovely photo. And what a stylish way to play hooky.

    To the girl with the rosy hair, that delightful hat you have perched on your head…did you by chance find that at Chingalings?- or Gaslight? or Lo bar?- or Oxford Arts- or simply on the bustle of the nights streets of Surry Hills perhaps last weekend? I seem to have misplaced mine in the confusion of the said nights events. Should it be mine, and should you wish to return it, I will be at Kawa everyday at 4 15 to 4 30 awaiting our encounter. Please note, a warm reward will be offered for your lovely compliance.

    Thank you,
    Oliver

    for me the girl on the right seems like she's drowning in the clothes, it's a great outfit, but her face kind of fades away.

    They both look pretty sophisticated, although the girl with the turban is looking like she's trying too hard. I still love her outfit. The redhaired girl is another story. I think she's got the right attitude, she seems pretty laidback and I love how the red scarf around her neck clashes with her hair and her skin tone. I still hope to get my photo taken by you some time in the future :)

    Having had the chance to know them personally through school, I can confidently say that they really are lovely girls. You can only judge what you see, so spare any criticism please. They are wonderful, daring, beautiful girls, and I'm ecstatic that they're receiving the recognition they deserve for their great taste ?

    It's fun to read comments from people who know these girls personally, and to hear that they *do* carry off their dramatic looks all the time, and that they're cool people inside too.

    I've sometimes wondered why we don't see comments from the Sartorialist's subjects themselves more often, or people who know them. Granted, I might have missed a lot. I don't always have the time to read through the dozens upon dozens of comments his entries earn — just for the photos that really really interest me, like this one.

    Dear Oliver,

    I am very sorry to tell that I bought my hat from a jumble sale last year some time. I don't think it's the one that you are in search of.
    Good luck finding it though, I really hope it makes it's way back to you someday!

    they look fantastic, though the scarf as headband thing has been overdone. Even so, i wish i'd been that stylish when i was in high school. I was a good nerd though, so i don't think i ever skipped it.

    I love this soooo much with the attitude and mash up of styles. In the '80s I wagged school in a hobble skirt, a 1940's jacket and heels and a beehive. Teemed with chewed finger nails of course.

    try-ing-too-hard? anyone? good god, do we all have to look like the same senily-delinquencial parisian mamie? i'm pretty sure that mamie is the only person that can and should rock this look.

    i'm not super-conservative or anything, but it looks as though these young ladies have a bit of an affectation, and not in a wonderful way. just in a affluent-teen "rebel" way. last time i checked, that wasn't fashionable, just trendy.

    of course, what do i know? when i played hooky, i sat in the hills and smoked purloined players.

    both these amazing girls went to my high school and left last year., and yes they are always like this, they are not ‘dressing up’.
    their sense of style is something i’ll never forget – even with our school’s uniform the brunette would always jazz it up with a headpiece, lipstick, boots or an awesome cardigan! and the redhead’s hair! its such a beautiful colour!
    i actually feel privileged to have known and seen these girls every day at school, and i will forever be inspired by their clothes and effortless style!

    They aren’t playing hooky, they go to uni, not high-school. Likewise knowing them, I can affirm that the burnette is an immensely stylish woman, but unfortantly, they are truly not the lovely and sweet girls they were described as. It’s unfortanate that their exterior does not match their interior.
