I’m sorry but this look is hideous, especially from below the knees. It’s weird how some people can throw some disparate pieces together and be able to carry it off with panache and style eg the woman in a tutu from Milan a few days ago, and can’t. Still, a fascinating photo and interesting to observe.
I like the androgyny of this look. When I first saw the jacket and pants, I thought it was a man, but the shoes soon set me straight
I also love the interesting textures of the jacket, especially the lower part. http://untrucoudeux.wordpress.com/
Looks like she’s just leaving a tribal fusion class/performance rehearsal: hip scarf, sweats for warm-down wear, fancy shoes because the sneakers were left out of the dance bag… check, check, check. I’ve had looks like this happen when I needed to re-assemble myself to get home after dancing, found I’d forgotten something, and/or just didn’t feel like dis-assembling allllllll the accoutrements I’d swathed myself in. (Never looked this cool though, I suspect.)
Let me see; You think she just left a dance class simply because she is wearing a gathered at the ankle pair of pants which might be sweats? I don’t see the logic. What does that sweater have to do with dance class? You believe she meant to wear sneakers, but forgot them, and somehow got shoes that match her outfit accidently from somewhere else. She doesn’t even have a bag with her.
If you mean “Do I think that she literally just walked out of a dance class?”, no; I know she probably didn’t. Good grief. But if you mean “Have I really walked out of dance classes wearing outfits that were so very similar, item-by-item, to this one that the photo struck a chord with me and made me smile?”, then yes indeed.
