Yet another look that reminded me of the past Australian summer. These dresses are going cheap at a shop called supre for about $30 AUD. And we are, of course, famous for excessive consumption of Havaianas (after brazil that is). Sigh. BRing BACK SUMMER!!
hmm. i agree, maria. the dress is great but the … gestalt is not. it’s the pose, the iPod headphones, the scarf, the shoulder bag and, my personal peeve, the rubber slippers of the old navy variety (if i never see another pair of those, it will be too soon). imagine, if you will, this beautiful woman in this beautiful dress with a low heeled, peep-toed wedge and a doctor’s bag or clutch. as it is, i feel rather like the dress is wearing the woman…
It’s the scarf. Those Parisian women are crazy about their scarves. When I was there last August I saw an older woman wearing a neck brace, with an Hermes scarf tied fetchingly around it. She wasn’t trying to hide the neckbrace, mind you. Just accessorizing it.
The flip-flops, on the other hand, are America at its worst. COuldn’t we just burn them all?
though i can understand that flip-flops are convenient in some locales, how can one stand the notion of walking around, not just the city, but the subway in sandals that flop dirt up onto the back of the leg?
I am so excited I am on your beautiful website. I look so hesitant to let you take my photograph because I wasn’t sure where it would end up. But you were so well dressed I figured it would be someplace good. I had just walked 50 blocks in those cheapy flip flops and had gladiator sandals in my bag for my in-office attire.
