I have mixed feelings about the raw deconstructed edge. I wore a phillip lim above the knee dress to an event a week ago and it had raw edges along the waist line and the hem. By the end of the night, I had a multitude of strings trailing the ground. Bits of the silk strings were buched up on my boyfriend's suit pants. They were everywhere and I wondered how I still had a dress on my body . . . So its beautiful but in some ways so annoying and impractical.
Love the brown and black and the shaggy skirt. But socks and sandals here and elsewhere are just fashion victimism. Not functional (how do U keep the socks clean?) and too evocative of bad tourist looks that are rife in resort towns. I know it's style but I'm just sayin.
Great shot, what a silhouette. Love her body figure.
The finish at the bottom of the skirt is nice combined with the pattern of the top and the haircut. The socks are worn just right, like a perfect follow up to the skirt. They in turn work nicely with the shoes, which are bold but sophisticated. All smooth transitions.
The ring, belt, nails and necklace are all good.
All that's really missing here is her name and number.
Bravo! Untamed hair, dancer body, dancer style, dancer stance (everything is aligned – hence the leg illusion…but that's great),…not too much makeup. She's into texture. I'd like to see more of her wardrobe. Encore!
I absolutely adore this to pieces. I would so wear this. However, I doubt it would look as gorgeous on me. As mentioned, the unfinished hemline, the shoe/sock combination, her messy bedhair, the simple jewelery – all of it fits so perfectly. I love how her outfit set the picture – it's so serene, almost. My favourite look of yours at the moment.
I love this look. I feel the vibration of Vivian Westwood somewhere close around. Love the hair, the dress, the sandals, and yes (Can't believe I'm says this) the socks. I wish the sock thing wasn't happening, but it is. Been there, done it, and its oh so wrong. But this woman makes it work.
Ok, so I have this question I've been meaning to ask for a long time: Are these women you photograph just regular ones you happen to see or look for on the streets of the cities you visit? Or are they models?
Because the clothes I've seen on some of them baffled me. I mean that in the very best of ways. I am extremely impressed if all these gorgeous women you find are simply there by accident.
Wow. Just… wow. The skirt is perfection, especially with the line created by the socks & shoes (it'd work with old-school granny boots, too). And the hair, the posture, the overall vibe… as Tatjiana Ciza says above, she looks like a punk-rock ballerina; I'd add that there are twists of goth and tribal in there too.
I see very few photos that make me think, "Damn, I wish I looked like that." This one does.
