Forget the kitten heels and clogs for spring. it will be the season for loafers. It's the best purchase to update the winter looks and carry them through spring. Church's has the best classic versions!
Loafers are always great as far as I am concerned, but what really surprised me was to see one of my own(i.e. a guy's) shirt looking so cool on this young woman. A great look born out of lateral thinking / styling. Its such examples of creativity that make this blog so wonderful.
She would look cute in a burlap bag, but I do like the headband and the olive/black combo. The loafers look like they want to be comfortable, as in no heels, but I feel blisters just looking at them. A message to this adorable thing from my physical therapist: turn your knees out! It will save your back in 20+ years.
The loafers are awesome, I love when a woman can take something so typically masculine and make it look so feminine. I love her play on contrast between the oversized shirt and the mini skirt, along with the choice of colors. The choice of nail polish and wrist accessories is the key to this outfit though, without those pops of color this would have been rather drab.
Loved everything until I got to the shoes. The choice of flats rather than heels was great, but I just don't like the loafers. And yes, that does appear to be Chanel's Jade polish. Love the little pop of color it adds to the outfit!
First instinct: walk of shame. But minus the same since she managed to pull together such a cute outfit by throwing on a mens shirt over the dress, and borrow loafers, heels stashed in the bag for the walk home. :)
I think this blog will give all shoemakers something to consider, i.e. the backlash against ridiculous heels. Women who have to walk (to and from work, at work etc.) quickly realize how crippling insanely high heels are. They don't even work on the catwalk…
She is amazing, In each photograph I see of her she still has that effortless chic. I love the bracelets on her hand. And the way that she can pull of such a simple style/outfit and still look stunning.
She looks like she got out of bed and slung on her boyfriends shirt over the skirt from last night. Combined with loafers + Headband + daisy bracelet and coffee she is the embodiment of natural beauty. Without tons of makeup and couture to weigh her down.
She's cute but really no more extraordinary than the hundreds of twenty-something fashion girls I see in the West Village every day! Thumbs up on the return of fashionable flatsâ€”I've never embraced those clunky hoof-like platforms.
FINALLY! Agreeing that a look is more than that it's an attitude and tired or not the true essence of the spirit carries through! Love the nail polish as well. I truly, truly, appreciate the confidence and appreciation of non "posed", carefree, this is who I am, I DONT need a pile of makeup to be feminine and I'll have my coffee to go too!
This picture shows what a difference hair makes. If she'd left it down, with such a loose top and masculine shoes, the outfit would risk looking a little sloppy/undone. But pulled way up and out of her delicate face, no distractions, she looks SO wonderfully fresh! Great shot!
Bare legs and loafers? Brilliant! I love the way that masculine shoes can totally change the feel of an outfit- it can take a short skirt from being too girly and instead make it look chic. Another favourite of mine at the moment are brogues. This is a really great shot, very un-self concious and relaxed. I think I read somewhere that you use a canon 5D? I have one, and they're so amazing to work with! The clarity and detail is stunning.
I'm not sure it's coffee–the straw tells me it's a cold drink–nevertheless, that photo is spot on with the background co-ordinating with the girl's colours to make a great photo. I also love the way her blue eyes match her nailpolish to add that touch of colour.
Love the comfy-chic retro look… this is the style I was aiming for in much of college & grad school, but not sure I ever got there. :) I do wish women would drop the hunched-over, pigeon-toed posture, though–why diminish yourself? It's neither cute nor cool.
she is realy beautifull. and she looks realy great in clothes. i can tell that she is the type of friend that you invite over after school and when she tries on all of your clothes you get super jeasous because she just looks THAT much better in all of them than you do.
