    Is there a better way to use a sweater as a skirt? She has a clue about that ;o)

    Is that a hooded jumper worn as a skirt? Brings a whole new meaning to the notion of "versatility"!

    This is exquisite. Gamine hair, fresh face and a sweater sculpted into a skirt! The neckline adds that little bit of structure to the top. Love, love, love

    it looks cute when she holds the skirt/sweater up on one side. the light in this picture is beautiful. The glasses are sweet! But the boots – well, zero points from me. The rest is very cool.

    Absolutely love everything about this (except for the boots, which mar the leg line)! Am dying to know whether the cleverly tied sweatshirt is actually what she's *wearing* on the bottom — or is it merely an improvised, hot-day trick, and she's got on "official" shorts — or a slim, short skirt — underneath??

  103. Bob Mack

    May 25, 2011 at 10:12 pm

    love the Sweater/skirt however she should have tieded the sleeves slightly to the side as they will bounce off her left leg in an unflattering way.

    Never comment, but I look at the blog twice a day!

    I love this look and its because of her confidence. The proportions and lines are not the most clean or flattering, but this girl puts it together in a way that's totally nonchanlant and sexy. I would feel awkard tucking my glasses in on that high a neckline, but it seems as if she does that all the time.

    Love it!

    I love that look! The… skirt? looks so cool. I can't exactly make it out.. isnt it a jumper tied around your waist? I dont know, it looks awesome though anyway. I really want to find a skirt like that. I love the shoes too. x

    Gosh…I remember doing this with my grey sweatshirt in my 20's (I'm 38 now)…people either thought I was clever…or…nuts…had a pixie-do at the time, too…ah, good times. Love it.

    it looks horrible
 how is it that it's ok to wear a sweater wrapped around your waist? i look at her and i wonder, "did she sleep over some dude's house last night? Was she too hung over to figure out where her real skirt was?" No. I love quirky, but this is not that. No. No.

    Along the way, she meets some amazing and diverse people. As a reader, you learn about her background and the personal issues that led her to the decision to forsake the comforts and heartbreaks of home and head off on her own. I don’t know that I would ever be brave enough to do what she did, but I was happy to travel vicariously through her!
