    There's so much to look at here. The mermaid bag jumps out first, but then there are the cowboy boots, the textured argyle tights, the highlighted hair, the great anorak on the girl on the right . . . Great shot.

    Fun and kicky! But why do people in the UK insist on wearing cowboy boots as a "fashion statement"?..I'm sorry, I just find them cringe worthy. Thank God she's young and cute. Cowboy boots are for cowboys. Period. The end.

    My first instinctive reaction was "ye gods, waaay too much!" until (probably 1/10 of a second later) I realized it was because I was thinking of them both as one person wearing ALL of those clothes. Separately I quite like them, and the tableaux is certainly picturesque, but I'm not sure they complement one another very well if you look exclusively at the clothes. (And obviously one does not expect them to have coordinated outfits in advance, I'm simply remarking not judging.)

    I'm with Ramona who needs drugs when you have The Sartorialist!!! It's a good addiction! I love the cowboy boots and for the other pair, a very wearable motorcycle style…The OD green (which happens to be one of my favorite colors) oversized parka is needed here in Oklahoma…talk about a staple! You caught these life loving girls just doing their thing. Its very infectious!

    Can anyone identify the boots the woman on the R is wearing. They're a lovely, flattering, feminine biker boot. And, having thin calves I'm always looking for boots in which my legs aren't swimming. I love the length- not quite booties, not mid-length…perfect.

    Label and where to find them?

    very much the contrary of quality, elegance, maturity, and refinement like in the best of milan.

    Schuh is a shoe and boot store in the UK- they usually have a massive range of boots. I had a pair very like those in the picture from them. Sadly they fell to pieces but I loved them.

    Nobody is liking the cowboy boots now because they're not "in" but as soon as Vogue decries them cool, everybody who hated them will be buying a $3,000 pair. Are biker boots just for bikers? Jeans just for ranchers? Trenchcoats just for military officers?

    To me this shot epitomizes a certain London style you see around Portobello Rd. The cowboy boots are great just not with the argyle tights…There was a big spread in July French Vogue, Daria wearing cowboy boots so I suspect they'll swing back into cool any day now.

    Oh I have a pair of vintage cowboy boots and I'm pretty sure who ever made them had them in mind for dancing not riding horses… That green coat also reminds me of something one of my best guy friends wears everyday.

    The point here is that anyone can be "alternative" and cutting edge — all they have to do is wear everything that totally doesn't match?

    I've been living in Texas for three years, and I've finally gotten used to seeing cowboy boots everywhere. Although, it amazes me to see people elsewhere wearing them as a fashion statement. I really want to buy a pair before heading to the state fair next month, but all the ones I like at the fun boot stores are so expensive (at least $400/pair). At least I live in one of the few parts of the world where cowboy boots will never go out of style!

    I love the mermaid hair with the mermaid bag.

    The mixed prints are hot!

    And cowboy boots are one those items that can always be worn. If you are a cowboy, they are part of your life uniform. If you are not a cowboy, they are fun because they are dorky and amazing. And if you are wearing cowboy boots because they are in for that season, you are hopelessly, tragically hip.

    They look like they'd be a lot more fun to hang out with than the always-camera-ready folks we sometimes see here. Love the serious expression of the narrator in contrast to the enjoyment on the face of the listener. Great moment.

    That is one of the cutest pictures i have seen. Thier hair is so mermaid like, and the mermaid bag is so cool, and so fitting. And I love how similar the two outfits are and yet totally individual. Just by the clothing you can tell they like the same things, but are very individual for all that. Amazing how much more a look at two people together can tell you then a picture of one alone. I love the milotary green coat and I LOVE the cowboy boots
