    what i love is the nonchalance of the look,from the bobbie pinned upswept hair to the one sock up and one sock down.

    whomever this beautiful woman is..please stop smoking.
    you want to live to 100 in good health.

  21. Dana

    Oh, she is gorgeous. Is this Garance again? I love her hair and her whole ensemble.

  22. TheWingchairTraveller

    October 20, 2010 at 8:58 am

    I'm not sure how I feel about the one sock up, one sock down. Maybe pick one and go with it? well, one thing I do know is that only the French could pull this one off, including the cigarette these days! Do love her hair though!

  25. Kathleen

    October 20, 2010 at 9:04 am

    I agree with Dana. This woman certainly looks like Garance. I love her look, the fashion this year is so much like the 80's but in a better, more refined, way. I love the mixture of man and woman, the punkish leather jackets with everything from shorts to dresses.
    I have all my leather and suede jackets out and ready to wear. Some are ten years old, a couple brand new. Thats the thing about leather, most of the styles really never go out of fashion. Love the hair up movement, its a great foil to the "boyfriend" thing.

    The baggy rolled up pants and grey socks with the black oxfords, it somehow all works! I think though that in order to truly pull this off you have to be pretty & elfin which this girl clearly is even with a bare glimpse of her face! If not, I don't think its an easy look to emulate effectively.

    I love this look, but I'm not sure why. It shouldn't work, the sock pushed down, the funny fitting pants, the sloppiness of it all. And yet… she looks great. That's style.

    it's in the small things, as always.. the assymetrically pulled up socks. whether it's on purpose or just happened by walking around, it looks great, laid-back but not sloppy thanks to the shoes.

    The socks and how they are worn, is the perfect defiant gesture in my way of seeing her. Like she's gonna smoke and wear her shirt out, and still be as gorgeous as ever!

    Earlier in the year there was a post with the guy with the sagging pants and I beleive the question was, is that fashion. Well, I can see the influence here in her sagging bottom shorts. Kinda hard for me to like on either.

    Like it, would love it if only she'd gone one way or another with the socks. It comes off as being too calculated- it doesn't look like the left one has slipped. Short men's trouser socks in that same color wd've made it perfect.

    Well, I'm really not a fan of the "Pants On The Ground" look for men or women. I suspect that the trend will lead to the re-emergence of prominmently displayed tramp stamps right above a women's butt.

    so am I the only one who has noticed the sideways back pockets? Like the back of the khakis were cut off and spun around. I love stuff like that! so it is kinda hard to tell if what we're looking at is baggy shorts or a skirt with an odd hem.
