      Hate to be the dissenting voice, but too lazy to go to the bottom. Love the Birkies. Makes the style cool instead of expected….plus I just think its flattering and cute. I can kind of imagine her kicking them off while sitting. Makes her more charming then girls who wear heels. Love the whole look…..even the hat( had to think on that one) !

    I like her socks and birkenstocks combo, and evian bottles of water make for a good accessory.

    I like how she’s looking wistfully at the American Apparel clothes.

    It’s a very modern look and I especially like your hat. You have nice blog.

    I don’t like the Birk and socks, but what I love more and more about your blog, it is these pictures of people not being beautiful in a classical or trendy way, but who are still at least very pretty, sometimes gorgeous, always interesting.
    We do not have to all look like top models, we have to be ourselves. This is what you show. This way, your work spreads kindness and generosity.

    Anytime is a good time for open-toed stilettos. In her case they should be mandatory.

    While Birks look great with heavy, real socks, they look silly with footie-anklet hybrids (actually, I can’t think of anything that these socks would work with).

    I love her hat. But here is a combination of shoes and socks too rough.


    October 21, 2013 at 6:29 am

    I take it we all see what is happening south of her knees…?

    Ah, the comments anti-Birks have become so predictable so as to be dull, missing so much about this picture. I adore her individuality, her wit, and her determination to be comfortable. She’s working at working it, and it’s that impulse — here by turns incongruent and defiant–that is utterly charming and invigorating. It’s all about process for me in this one. You go girl creature, you go!

    • LIZPR

      Lulu – it’s true – but I still agree that Birks and socks are horrible. I don’t really mind Birks themselves for a very casual summer look.

      I feel the same about anti-cigarette or tattoo comments. Bored by them.

      What did you expect? Especially here. Lets face it, Sartorialist commenters are fairly predictable.

    Ah, victim falling prey to fashion’s furious trends. I don’t mind socks and sandals. I don’t mind a quirky hat. I don’t even mind American Apparel (in great moderation!)… but all three! Geez, sorry… she went way overboard with this look.

    Hating Birks has become as trendy as the trend itself.

    Let’s leave the cliched Birks debate alone for a moment. #1 I would have worn tights, #2 the sailor hat plus the buster brown hair just takes this look way overboard. *Pun intended*

    I think Birkenstock sandals look great on women, especially with socks. However, some black knee socks would have pushed her cuteness over the top.
