Hate to be the dissenting voice, but too lazy to go to the bottom. Love the Birkies. Makes the style cool instead of expected….plus I just think its flattering and cute. I can kind of imagine her kicking them off while sitting. Makes her more charming then girls who wear heels. Love the whole look…..even the hat( had to think on that one) !
I don’t like the Birk and socks, but what I love more and more about your blog, it is these pictures of people not being beautiful in a classical or trendy way, but who are still at least very pretty, sometimes gorgeous, always interesting.
We do not have to all look like top models, we have to be ourselves. This is what you show. This way, your work spreads kindness and generosity.
Ah, the comments anti-Birks have become so predictable so as to be dull, missing so much about this picture. I adore her individuality, her wit, and her determination to be comfortable. She’s working at working it, and it’s that impulse — here by turns incongruent and defiant–that is utterly charming and invigorating. It’s all about process for me in this one. You go girl creature, you go!
Ah, victim falling prey to fashion’s furious trends. I don’t mind socks and sandals. I don’t mind a quirky hat. I don’t even mind American Apparel (in great moderation!)… but all three! Geez, sorry… she went way overboard with this look.
