I love how her belt gives the perfect amount of shape, even with that blanket of a sweater she has. I could wrap myself up in that and sleep till the afternoon, it looks so comfortable!

And if I were 20 feet tall and had a skin tone that matched sky blue, I'd put on that utility jacket sculpture in a second ;)

over-sized cardigans are the bomb-diggity.

 

Blogger Lucy said ... (11:30 AM) : 

gorgeous hair and a great way of wearing one of those giant cardigans without getting completely swamped

 

Blogger sarina said ... (12:17 PM) : 

Would be too modest without the belt. The belt brings some excitement to the whole outfit. I like this one. Knit on knit.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:21 PM) : 

those are some gorgeous boots! Lovely picture too, she looks very cute!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:26 PM) : 

Though she´s cute , I think she would look better in clothes and a bag that were her size=small.These loose garments look ok if you are tall and have larger bones. Asian women are generally petit and I think this is an advantage in many ways.This young woman would look great if she wore clothes that flattered her petitness;something close to the body,short,silk perhaps...

This is the type of outfit that could easily look like it was still on the hanger on most women, but she is totally wearing it! As cute as the outfit is, her amazing beautiful face steals the show! Love the mix of brown and black too. She has a beautiful presence.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:18 PM) : 

cute cute cute as a pearly white button! how does she make a sweater-dress, which by nature has a proclivity towards saggy-lumpy-dumpiness, look so darn chic? let alone 2 layered sweater-dresses, from what i can tell. it's the perfect balance between relaxed and fitted. this combo has never looked so good.

 

Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (1:29 PM) : 

I love her look! Pèrfect composition! Great colors!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:03 PM) : 

These Chinese girls you shot are so beautiful!

 

Anonymous cris said ... (2:03 PM) : 

beautiful bag (dior?) .beautiful boots. wintry style.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:04 PM) : 

Brilliant photograph!!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:44 PM) : 

mao coat in the background, modern girl in the foreground...nice contrast haha

 

Blogger enc said ... (3:06 PM) : 

"Slouchy" at its best!

The hair is perfection.

 

Anonymous Victoria said ... (5:47 PM) : 

I love this outfit it looks so chic whilst still being comfortable!

 

Blogger caramimi said ... (6:00 PM) : 

she wears the volume, slouch, texture on texture look beautifully. i love the shots of black on the belt, and the base garments. what really pulls this together, for me, is her loveliness and relaxed confidence. the contrast between the stiff, metal mao jacket and modern, soft woman is a great composition!

 

Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (6:48 PM) : 

The bag must be Dior, gaucho bag. I love it!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:08 PM) : 

I like this look. 'These' girls are all over the place in Harvard Square. They are especially striking among the fleece/clog crowd....lol....

 

Blogger pearlescent said ... (7:10 PM) : 

Wow! How did she think of wearing the belt with this huge sweater and layering two knitted pieces over each other! The belt makes her look much more chicer, and the layering is perfect! Are the cuffs of her sweater actually black? Or is she wearing a third layer? Whatever it is it's great and goes perfectly with her tights and belt. Her nice brown slouchy boots and brown saddle bag add a nice color combination to her whole look.. Well executed!

 

Blogger landis said ... (7:20 PM) : 

huh. i posed in front of that same piece. in a modern mao jacket by nice collective.

 

Blogger pretty kitty publishing said ... (8:03 PM) : 

Love how the belt ties together this slouchy look and complements theDior bag and the baggy boots. This is a look that a stylista of any height can pull off.

I am not a fan of globalization if it makes everyone look the same. This girl could be walking in Williamsburg or a shop in Nolita or Urban Outfitters. There is nothing unique or interesting to her look other than it is in Communist China. In this case it is not enough.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:33 AM) : 

sart, you have the best eye! love the juxtaposition of mao and now!

 

Blogger Alice Olive said ... (9:39 AM) : 

She looks fantastic. Love the colour mix and the casual folds/proportions. Beautiful.

 

Blogger Asian Models Blogger said ... (10:57 AM) : 

A great way to modernize grandma sweater. A simple belt took it to the next level.

 

Blogger Candid Cool said ... (11:02 AM) : 

Cute. But I look that sculpture!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:55 PM) : 

I agree with anonymous. In all likelihood this woman is visiting from somewhere else. If the goal here is to look like a fairly commonplace westernized look, then this shot captures that I suppose.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:19 PM) : 

what a great use of monochromatic pallette - choc brown, black, beige & grey - and it's all balanced. bit of black peeking out from under the sleeves of the coat, but balanced by the belt & peek of stocking. so well done. she's a natural.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:35 PM) : 

Communist China? Are you serious? According to what you said, you've probably never been to China. Today's China could be anything but communistic. 30 years ago, all the people in China wear black and blue Mao Uniform. What a Change!?
Ignorance is the best culture for arrogance.

This picture is so interesting. I love the compositional contrast between the cultural revolution uniform and the current, modern styles invading China.

Oh, how I miss my country.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:27 AM) :

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:55 AM) :

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:55 AM) : 

She is lovely! Please sart, show us more petites!

 

Anonymous Cedar said ... (2:38 AM) : 

That is a fabulous sweater!

 

Anonymous Bico said ... (10:15 AM) :

Anonymous alis said ... (7:50 AM) :

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:11 PM) : 

The sculpture is by Sui Jianguo. Check him out. He's almost as hot as Du Juan right now.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:17 AM) :
