The boots are lovely, yes, but I’m not too impressed with the scarfage on either. Her scarf looks silly (and like it’s choking her) over her hair, and his scarf looks silly (and quite, well, lewd) under his sweater.
Hey Sart! Happy New Year! I love the boots, I don’t like the fact that her scarf is soo light pink…and also why don’t she put her hair out of the scarf…and the guy I like the sweater, but not the scarf under….Nolita can do better than that!
I think her colour palette – the warm grey with the chocolate brown, the deep navy, and the pale pink – is lovely enough to transcend the styling and trendiness issues, at least when it comes to inspiration. Colour can do so much to lift the spirits on a winter’s day that I’m grateful wherever I find it….
I like the bloke’s pullover but I’m not sure about the scarf hanging down there underneath, it looks a bit ‘sumo’ if you know what I mean :-O
Incidentally, it’s great that Jean Touitou enjoys your site: He has a very enjoyable blog on a Japanese magazine, essential reading if you are an APC fan or even if you just enjoy M Touitou’s fine taste in music…
They look so good, they really match. But what is up with that scarf business? The pink scarf look way to cheap for her outfit, and the guy is wrapping him selves all wrong…
If you are thinking of going to Stockholm for fashion-week there, I totally think you should go. People there are great and daring dressers, great street fashion. I think you will find great inspiration. As well as the designers are really good.
He needs to undo the top button on the sweater and do a very loose “parisian” loop with that scarf. The idea is to direct the eye up away from the belly and toward the face. The pants could also be a touch shorter.
That said, the garments are well-chosen and the fold-under sweater is working.
There’s a lot of dislike toward the scarf under the sweater that my man has going on here. I know that a Parisian loop or a slipknot may be a bit sleeker, but I seem to like it a bit. I think the problem is that we are looking at the overall slouchiness of his ensemble from the waist down. If his trousers didn’t have such a huge break and his shoes were a bit crisper, we may have adorned this guy a contributor to modern fashion.
I can shed some light on this mystery…the gent’s name is Jay Bones. Not a ‘footballer’ per say but all around an excellent athlete which explains his firm and somewhat meaty build. [Note: he did, however, lose his starting spot on the McBurney JV Basketball team to Noel Ashman].
One well-known trait of Mr. Bones is his elephantine testes, and the scarf, while fashionably long (almost revolutionarily so), is probably more a nod to his subconscous need to protect the ‘nadsters.
The pants are a bit long, but then JB has always considered himself to be 6’2” instead of his true 5’11”, and he may be guilty of wishful shopping. IT should also be noted that I am taller than him.
I do not know the ladyfriend, but it could be said with confidence that she’s fortunate to have so much sexy standing next to her.
