I do too. She looks magical. Its not your typical urban look. Its completely her own. And the pale skin, and curly wild black hair like that you can’t help but love. She looks like someone I would want to get to know.
And cat ladies are wrong because…? Yes, that’s right, becasue they are spinsters and therefore barren and undesirable to men. “Bite On” says it all really, in terms of how you look at pictures of women.
Really ugly outfit. The shoes and socks combination is so tacky.
I thought the effortless natural look is still in, so what’s with this 10-million-layers-because-I’m-never-sure look?
Maybe it’s because I see people looking like her in the university district of Tehran,Iran everyday. To me, this look belongs to the brain-less who constantly try to stand out by opting for a “different” look and tirelessly try to fool people into believing that they actually “are different”.
That’s how they put it. I’d say they simply look pretentious though.
One could also, of course, say that posting mean-spirited, insulting excoriations of those whose style one dislikes rather than engaging in thoughtful commentary is tacky and pretentious. But I will simply say that one may wish to consider the idea that those who differ from oneself may do so for perfectly valid reasons–not reasons with which one has to agree, of course, but reasons nonetheless–not simply because they are “brain-less.”
Conservative, that is one strong word to use. Useful when you’re not sure what else to say.
How about expressing a real opinion every once in a while? Everyone seems to love everything. It’s excruciating.
Maybe because not everyone wants to look “in” as if they were a mindless.
When I think of “effortless” I think of the ubiquitous “I want to look classy, but I am really just class conscious” look. Featuring; featureless, un-distressed dark jeans ( always skin tight, skinny leg, lower mid rise), black booties with a heel, and a slim cut leather jacket with that cascade collar. Like they shop at Vince all the time. I find that to be trying so hard to be effortless and subtle that its tacky.
This girl looks like someone that is free and comfortable being herself. Trying to be the same as everyone else is far more stupid then trying to be different from everyone else, because people ARE all different.
I love this combination. I’m taking inspiration from the clogs with tights plus pre-Raphaelite vibe right now. I must finally be embracing cat-lady-dom. It is my destiny and it makes me happy, so why fight it!
sure the socks and shoes are completely unrelated to the look.
But the image could be quite useful as a color harmony palette. if you zoom in on the coat and dress you get a lovely arrangement of mauves and purple hues, different textures and drapery that extends to the ringlets of her hair. drammatic and sublime!
What a horrible diatribe of bile and negativity the internet can facilitate seriously people this is what you do for kicks? I can only assume that the negatives here are covering their own mirrors whilst taking snide delight in tearing someone else apart.
That used to be called thrift-store chic. I’m not sure you can find a thrift-store in Manhattan anymore. Probably costs a fortune from some of the peg Anthropologie-type outlet.
Either way, I like her look. She should be singing Laura Nyro songs at the Blue Note.
Many comments quite hilarious (and grumpy). Enjoyed. I would paint a picture from this photo in a heartbeat. It’s very painterly, somehow. Those two black designs in the tights pattern made it all work for me.
And worn out clogs! Whaaa…!
What nerve. You go, girl/boy!
Thanks for sharing your view! But no thanks for the mind reading… Obviously, we’re all different, so not everyone sees it the same way. That does not negate anyone’s opinion, or mean that it is form from un-genuine motives.
I like this outfit. It also reminds me of a pre-Raphaelite painting and that whole arts and crafts vibe – especially the socks and so on – a vibe I have always been fond of, having grown up surrounded by it. I am not showing off my knowledge (what I’ve said is hardly remarkable) I am just sharing the way I feel, as you are.
