I know – not a whit of style, BUT, she looks so happy to be alive and doing what she’s doing. I think of her look in this photo, as that of a young child getting to dress in her favorite pieces of clothing and not caring if it is correct or not. In seeing Scott’s pictures over time, I’ve come to realize not everyone needs to be a style maven, not everyone needs to cultivate a brand. Live and enjoy is what he seems to want to show in most of his pictures
I agree. Most of the time Rei looks comical but she is having such fun and looks so happy who are we to judge. Love Bonnie’s phrase ‘not a whit of style’ so succinct in this case but maybe that IS Rei’s style?
My reaction to this was mixed, largely because of the shiny paisley pants. It seems every woman is playing with the slip dress. Either wearing it over pants or with a cardie over top or else just alone. Slip dresses are to some extent silly, because unless you are Madonna, wearing lingerie on the street is a no no. For me, Rei is saying, look, this is how I’m doing the slip dress, layered over and under and with a big coat. Who wants to be cold?
