    I like this look too, the off the shoulder tee helps to cut the adrogyne of it. Brown shoes, brown belt. I have a weakness for those cheap plastic watches with the big straps. It also helps that her hair is fantastic.

    Wow! What a shock eating my cereal this morning! This girl totally looks like me! (I'm THAT cool and THAT humble)…

    Seriously, I've got the same boyish haircut, the same kind of shirt that I wear on one shoulder (to show off my tattoos… 'cause I'm THAT cool), a very similar leafy green bag and… Okay, I don't have the shoes… nor do I have the killer swagger or legs to show off… But I top it off with a summer Fedora. You gotta have a hat when you live in Montreal!

    When are you coming in Montreal to see the cute summer girls, Scott?

    I must admit, had I seen this look on the street, I probably wouldn't have looked twice. However, this look IS quite the attention-getter once you take a moment to analyze it.

    The men-inspired shoe with a short black sock says, "I'm in control" and the bag says, "So what? All my stuff fits in here!" Addd that with a cute denim dress and you've got yourself a major fashion statement!

    Statement alert……

    Great shot.

    aaah, this is the look that i'm gonna try to pull off for the remaining time of the summer… mens shoes for women. honestly i am wondering though, is that something that men would find attractive?
    anyways, i am in love with the idea (even though i'd like this with chinos more, to be honest).
    oh and i realize that garance talked about this a year ago or so. germany is just a little behind in fashion, i guess.
    good work as usual, sart!

    Love this!
    The bag is my favourite. Green is my passion–I collect all sorts of green things in that shade as much as possible.
    I have always thought black, brown, navy and greys all go well together–keeping them all the right tones helps.
