Egads! Those faux fur (??) cuffs are awesome. What an easy make that would be on the sewing machine. And they wouldn’t cost a lot either. They would be such a great conversation piece. Everyone and their bro would want to ‘pet’ them while you’re waiting for the bus, train, get into the theater.
I mean, I get it- we’re at a point when chains, studs and leather are overdone and acceptable to wear; counterculture fashion has become largely mainstream. What direction is left for a young lady in the city to go (in terms of fashion) who is inclined to rebel? I’m from the Midwest and I see this look a lot, although worn without deliberation. Her saving graces are that she’s young, attractive, has a nice hat, and she’s holding an expensive camera. Without these, she could fit in at Walmart.
Astute comment! But isn’t that what personal (and well put together) style is all about – embracing your age (experience) and pulling it all together with something (even one thing) than sends a message you did this on purpose…?
She looks really cool on this photo but I’m sure if I met her on the street I would think that she run away from the hospital in her pajamas a sandals with socks on:) The coat is awesome though http://dcinstyle.com/
oh come on. has all sense left the planet? she gets away with an absolutely shocking mismatched ensemble because she’s cute? it’s like an over long blog post with one good point, you end up acquiesing due to that one point and hating the rest.
lady – fantastic, gorgeous
hat, coat, camera, scarf – acceptable
birks, socks, baggy boyfriend pjs – total zeroes.
don’t even try to spin this overall look, it’s crap.
Well…she is clearly not an accountant from Des Moines. Sometimes these pics seems so insular and exclusive …like pages of the cool kids in high school year books…but I guess that is part of the reason I come to this site.
Interesting from a fashion point of view, because none of the cliches are here. Birkenstocks? Socks with sandals? And loud big pants. Yet it works. I guess the day of skinny pants is behind us. Very ’80′s feel to it for me, especially the bottoms.
I love everything about this women and her outfit except the “what will soon be” dirty socks and Birks. She is so 180 in her dressing for the moment and I love this so very much, she could have done much better with the shoes. I love the hat and the fur!
What I love about this photo is that she is the “real Parisienne”. People think all you see there are thin, rich women in designer clothing. I lived there 3 years and this is a girl you would see at a cafe, she would ask “are you american?” and then you would be out for the night at a bar or restaurant with her and her friends. The artsy Parisiens I met and still know are so artsy, funky and just enjoy life. Just love the mood of this photo.
