That's how we all dressed back in Argentina during the late 80s – early 90s. I see this big blazer trend coming back and I'm thinking that it's always a good idea to never trash your good but outdated pieces of clothing; eventually, you'll use them again! And I'm loving the bag.
the bangs and the cuffs created by the roll-up are icing on a boxy cupcake.
The interstitial space between the garment and the woman is the essence of all drape. Here we have no flow – but we do have drape. A refrigerator's worth of cool boxed into the space where some man's shoulders and waist normally reside. Even the boxy denim trousers point towards the hidden shape beneath. Agreed re: the bag. Great color.
If she and I were at the store together when she found that jacket (especially if it was at a second hand store), I would have jumped on her and tried to take it from her. I would just have to have it and from the way she's looking, like she just *owns it*, she would too. And she's probably bigger than me so it would be ugly. Security would be called.
This outfit would have looked so much cooler if she had been wearing super skinny cropped jeans with heels, or a tight short skirt with boots, to balance out the volume of the jacket. Right now everything on her is just oversized and baggy. Would have been better to balance out the volume of the jacket with something slimmer on the bottom.
All I can think of when I see her jacket is the really big blazer David Byrne wore in "Stop Making Sense". For him it was part of his performance, so he could get away with it. On her, I'm with the commenter who compared it to a used car saleman's garb. A bit far over the line between fashionably oversized and just plain silly.
Agreed, I find her gaze somewhat affronting. It is as though she's stopped in her tracks 'cause there's a bus-full of tourists wearing board shorts and flip-flops. Compare this to the smile of Yasmin Sewell.
Anon 10:47 PM, can I have permission to use "myspace pout" for future commentary? Or have you copyrighted it? I know someone owns the rights to "myspace trout pout" and he's making a lot of money.
