About “ethnic” scarfs: they add a level of depth to those who wear them: tricking cultural perceptions… Bags have the same function in terms of status. This bag is still so low profile in the public eye that makes it attractive for me.
Warning: broad sweeping comments about to be made, which may provoke urges to respond vehemently, whether pro, or con. White socks with black shoes and black pants…it’s very “un-American” in taste. Looks goofy. Well, at least it did to me, til a Swiss man explained that to Europeans it expresses “cleanliness”. Anyone else ever had a “white socks” conversation across cultural boundaries?
I think this girl has a perfect perception of her general features and prefers to be incisive than pleasant to look at.. white socks could have been a pain in the neck but matching those two little white spots with that giant scarf in the general plainliness of the outfit and of the haircut just makes her REALLY interesting and mid-european style. she is someone who understood perfectly the meaning of the suggestion -hide your fault for what you can, show what remains as qualities- or something like it. understatement with a rock flavour!
