Love the jacket! The leggings, boots and the dress are nicely juxtaposed: modern, edgy but still reminicent of very femenine shape.
I personally have issues with handbags being carried like that: it feels so awkward. I’ve seen so many women carrying bags like that and it always feels like playing an older dame …like they are in their 50s, or they admire Victorian times. Kind of artificial and totally strict, not fun. Not for me.
yeah, i don’t know when that arm position became the thing — i think i first started noticing it back when the balenciaga le dix bag was the bag of the moment and you’d see gwynneth and the olsen twins carrying it like that. very-queen elizabeth-with-a-pocket-book stiff and akward. but the woman here could wearing this baby blue (bluejean?) birkin upside-down and on her head and it would still be fab.
uh…no. she looks like a style victim- that skirt looks like it got stuck in the waist of her tights. and the fabric is another weather than the top and boots and the color of bag just doesn’t work for me.
maria if you need your hands free, the crook of the arm is a very natural place for the handle of a handbag to ‘sit’. Often my hands have keys, coffee, mail … or one hand has a tote bag and carrying my handbag in the other hand makes me feel like a bellhop. The elbow was made for a certain kind of bag. If you feel awkward, then maybe a shoulder strap is for you.
don’t like at all. the jacket/cardigan looks cheap, and what’s with that dress/skirt? it looks like something you would wear to the beach. The worst thing though is mixing black and baby blue like that.
i think this is lovely. i like how she has a floaty sarong, generally very summery, combined with all black to make a fun unique look for fall.
and for those who think that the bag position is awkward — for those of us with sloping shoulders (and she does seem to be one), many bags will fall of those shoulders, and they will naturally end up in your elbow.
