    Is that a bag, or a book strap? This is a nice change from typical 'androgyny'.

    One of the few cases wherein a fedora (or is that a homburg?) really works.

    But I'm hating the idea of eviscerating a book to create a bag. Holding a book in your hand and actually _reading_ it–that's real style.

    I don't care what she looks like.

    I would be highly interested in this woman on the strength of 2 things:

    1) She's not another of the brainless ubiquitous masses, staring into a cell phone like it contains all the world's answers.

    2) Love a woman who reads, but more than that, it's the artful way that she's carrying the dictionary. That looks like one of those leather book straps that school kids used to use, waaaaaaaaay "back in the day".

    Interested and interesting.

    June 10, 2011 at 5:24 pm

    I don't like this, and I am not sure why. Might be the combination of the fuzzy hair with the rough texture of the hat – it comes across as disheveled instead of stylish. Also, long unstructured hair calls for uncluttered neck lines, so the vest is also over the top. That bookbag is not doing anything for me, either. The only thing I love in her ensemble are the shorts – looks like she chopped off the legs of a pair of pants on her own and ended up a great new piece. She is very cute and has an amazing body, though.

    What she is wearing is not a big deal, but it is a delightful unity. The way the shirt fits (a little small), the vest…and the little hat topping her lovely red curls.

    Just a really lovely tomboy.

    Good luck to her in all her endeavors.

    Ok. NO ONE carries around a desk sized dictionary from 1959. If people need to look up stuff, they bring a laptop, or Ipod. Not an ancient Dictionary with a bookstrap. Thus it must be a bag that looks like a dictionary on a strap. Awesome.

    I am enraptured with her hair – gives a feminine touch to fantastic mens wear look.

    The color of her hat highlights her hair and look perfectly. Adorable.!!

    Fabulous idea for a blog. I've always preferred Mary Ellen Mark work over Annie" Leibovitz's precisely because Mark focus on real people and substance.

    Hey…thats me!My name is Davy…and yes that is a dictionary ''book bag'' i made myself! i was inspired my 1940s school boys carrying their books with a belt! i like it because i dont carry around much accept my wallet,phone,pens,ect…and its beautiful to me..! the dictionary i feel brings up the past instead of a plain makes me feel timeless!

    Everything is so cool about her, her hair, the colors she chose, so far away from the color block that we see everywhere, and the bag. I'm enjoying very much these last "summery" shots.

    The hair, the figure, the elbow & cuff, length of shorts and shirt, the hat. It's all beautiful. She has lovely hands. I did once carry a large Webster's 3rd edition home from the Strand with a piece of string for a handle. I don't prefer the internet when it comes to language.

    Ok, I went to the used book store, I have three appropriate leather belts. Nylon thread, and leather glue. Wish me luck. Im going to try to make this work. Im trying it out on a scrap book first before I go for the cool one, I think. If I can figure out how to line it, Im there. Something tells me its going to be harder then it looks.

    Usually I appreciate the photos here and don't leave comments – but this one bothers me. Everyone is always so keen to praise what's posted here! As usual, this is a well-made photo but the subject is particularly annoying. The worst sin of the subjects on this site is often just unremarkable style, but this one actively evades authenticity. She is trying way too hard with all those schoolboy accessories, and risks falling into an impenetrable pit of hipsterdom. To me, real fashion reflects the real world. Something tells me that in reality she isn't exactly at the pinnacle of scholastic achievement…

    its Davy again! I am not wearing the dictionally to "look smart" or to try too hard.i found this dictionary boxed away…not being used…so i made use of it. i have other dictionaries so i didn't need this one..found it in a junk shop and well…rather than it sit in the dark..i gave it life.i gutted it and used the scrap pages on other projects..actually i used it as wallpaper and wheatpasted it on one of my livingroom ive had this idea of the bag for years…and made purses and boxes..for no one to see. for me its not to impress anyone but its my aesthetic.i love turning trash into treasure. no one had even seen this book until i made into something the whole world could see. for me, its much classiar than some plain ole purse that anyone could have.
