It is a bold graphic, and I don’t know whether or not she is American (I am) but this somehow epitomizes the kind of safe look that is our weakness sartorially. I wish Americans would end their love affair with “cute”, “pretty” and all other formulaic ways of dressing. It’s time to evolve into something more sophisticated. There is a huge territory largely uninvestigated between “slut” and “virgin”.
On another note: I’m noticing a lot of espadrilles in your NYC pics…this surprises me; I don’t normally think of them as a city shoe or, especially, an NYC shoe. It’s pleasant and surprising to see the ladies of the Big Apple rocking the ‘spadrilles.
Very nice outfit but I see a lot of this from my country (I’m from the Philippines wherein there is eternal summer).. I actually have several pairs of the same type of shoes she’s wearing.. Those are really comfortable, especially in this weather, and stylish, and not to mention cheap.. ;P
this is really fresh. i like how the boldness of the pattern has the same kind of summer effect as color might. i hadn’t really considered how a bold pattern would be outrageous in cooler weather, but the contrast is very warm. you’ll have to forgive me as i make some very obvious revelations. its new to me.
