I love how Rennae Goodchild mixed the soft skirt with studs on her t-shirt and Converse sneakers. The sneakers look DIY and if they indeed are, I have to say that I love them. (okay, i love them even if they’re not!)
I saw this girl today on Crosby Street and had to stop her. She is beyond adorable and was really sweet as well. I’ve seen alot of girls wearing sheer skirts with short skirts underneath. Hers kind of does double duty with a fitted solid top part above the sheer below which looks better to me than seeing a skirt underneath. She paired it with a modern floral top (which is not TOO “floral” which you guys know I’m not a fan of) and sandals with socks –another trend that while I know may look ridiculous but I just love.
p.s. and she is not “pretending to model” by putting her hand on her head, it actually was a bit breezy and she was controlling her hair!
The key to wearing black is keeping it interesting. This girl does it through textures and layers: a loose knit sweater casually falls off the shoulder while a scarf drapes on the neck and a leather studded garter belt is worn over the skirt as an accessory.
Her whole look is clean and simple –without any jewelry and a simple clutch bag. I think she has an interesting look but I’m not entirely convinced by the hat…or maybe it’s a trend I’ve seen too much lately. What do you think of the hat? The look altogether?
All black is boring? Safe? Predictable? Possibly. But it also can be utterly stylish when there’s a nice balance to lengths and textures as shown here. I also love the white beads that reference proper pearls but without the perfect roundness.
Admittedly, I’m not overly fond of the under 18 set. And mostly they tend to wreak havoc on a woman’s style – and if you don’t believe that you’ve never watched one of the many makeover shows starring bedraggled mothers. So it’s great to see someone who defies the stereotype. And the little girl looks like a definite future fashionista as well.
Sometimes couples seem to “match” and it feels too thought out and saccharine. And sometimes it just seems like they have similar tastes…these two seem to fall into the latter category. And I love that she’s wearing oxford shoes at night!
Yes readers, another Maxi dress. I told you I’m obsessed… This girl totally caught my eye in this jewel tone blue dress and the fact that she’s beautiful didn’t hurt either. But when I do *The Paper Bag Trick I’m less convinced that the whole ensemble works. The floor length crocheted jacket, fringe purse and fur on top (not to mention the strange black ponytail shaped thing in the center) makes me think that if she were on America’s Next Top Model, Andre Leon Talley would be pulling pieces off and declaring it all “drecktitude” until we could finally see the actual girl in the dress.
*The Paper Bag Trick is the idea of trying on an outfit and putting a paper bag over your head (presumably with eye holes!) to actually assess whether the outfit is really good. The thought behind it is that we’re all a little partial to ourselves and so it’s hard for us to see the outfit objectively when we see our faces. With other people’s photos this is much easier by simply covering their faces but works the same!
I don’t even know if I like the longer lengths but since I believe they’re here to stay for awhile I’m taking more notice of people who are wearing. Karen (shown here) is wearing a vintage dress and I think the cropped jacket over it works well proportionately…heels are also critical with this length if you’re not model thin or tall.
