but i think that’s the intention, no? the hem length is also very wrong for her height and paired with those claudstompers i’m feeling like this is the intention and in it’s way the beauty of it. being so very wrong that it’s right. yes?
Why is it that you only (mostly) post pictures of skinny women? Surely there are normal sized and even fat women you encounter, outside of Latin American countries, who are well-dressed? It’s just a little discouraging to constantly see fashion icons / role models who are nowhere near my body type, despite the fact that I eat healthy and exercise.
(I’m not saying anything in particular about this woman’s outfit – she’s gorgeous and I love her sense of style. I’d just like to see people on your posts who look a little more diverse.)
I think that the shoes would look better without the visible little sock-lets, but overall I like the look. The volume at the bottom of the skirt works well with the shoes. And why all the hate for the shoes? They’re kinda groovy and certainly much better than the running shoes that so many are raving about right now. (And by running shoes I mean running shoes, not cool sneakers like Stan Smiths, Adidas shell-toes, Puma suede classics, Chucks, etc. They’re great.)
Not very flattering, but far from creepy, imo. My guess is that it is make-up or tanning lotion – her face and neck look to be darker than the rest of her skin. Somebody wrote that the style looks Spanish; maybe she is a model and she was “tanned” for the runway in order to underscore the Spanish look? Or she applied too much self-tanner – happened to me once (and never again!).
I love her whole look. But I agree, I would have tried on another pair of shoes at home after looking in the mirror in those. With other shoes, she would have looked glamorous. With these shoes she looks like carefree and fun, so it is fine. But above the shoes, I love it. And the bag adds a little color pop, which is always nice!
La gonna ed il cappello rigorosi, il maglione informale ma di una tinta scura, la scarpa quasi avveniristica e la macchia di colore della borsetta creano un insieme veramente interessante dando vita ad un look unico e peculiare.
I think the hat has a similar sharp line to the hats worn by men at the Sevillanas Flamenco “Party” dances at Ferias in Andalucia Southern Spain. The shoes though I agree, are strange here but in the way they make the skirt and importantly, body shape look like a Paula Rego painting. Interesting!.
Ha ! true!. I would not want to either. Rego is indeed a good painter … but also of the dark and grotesque. Here the stance, the full skirt, the chunky-ness of the shoes- giving a shortened look to the legs is something that gave me a general feeling of Rego.
But the style I think is far more like that of the horse riding Caballos of Jerez and Cordoba, their hats in particular but also their neat, soft fabrics and sharp cuts. An interesting photograph!.
