On the Street....Inside-out Shearling, London

Again, it's not what you wear - it's how you wear it.

Blogger Caitlin said ... (10:39 PM) : 

I love her boots but it's overall a look that is far from classy, in my opinion.
(but come on, I like pretty much everything on this site, she seems to know what she's doing, this kid)

it's how you wear it.!!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:50 PM) : 

not a pretty picture. the run on the legging and the sloppy shoes just don't compute. the leather side next to the skin will feel sticky after a while. shearling is meant to trap air and warmth inside, between the skin and leather.


Blogger Saffron said ... (11:06 PM) : 

cute.....also those pics by Polka Dot of you are darling :-)))

With a face like hers, anything goes!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:13 PM) : 

Without malice, this is too Punky Brewster meets Pippi Longstockings for my tastes.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:16 PM) : 

She looks like a whimsical, young vagabond! I will continue to imagine the world hasn't managed to break her spirit yet.

Blogger Candace said ... (12:10 AM) : 

She is certainly wearing that coat like it's reversible, love it! And I have a suitcase just like that...different pattern tho, it was my grandmother's.


Blogger Jacqueline said ... (12:16 AM) : 

Exactly, it is perfect on her! She looks quite adorable.

absolutely adorable — & fantastic suitcase!


Anonymous ellabella said ... (12:32 AM) : 

the coat is inventive, but i love the shoes and bag! they are worn so genuinely! (could live without the shirt).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:34 AM) : 

Stylish certainly, but I don't love the look.


Blogger Keyra said ... (12:39 AM) : 

lovely boots and eyes


Anonymous jordan said ... (12:46 AM) : 

despite your ability to capture a certain something in just about anyone, i still fail to see the loveliness of this outfit!

i'm certain there's someone out there that will love it, however.


Blogger THE BEAUTY OF SIMPLICITY. said ... (12:47 AM) : 

I liked this girl, and of her T-shirt too!
woooooow beautiful photoshots here!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:52 AM) : 

She is cute! This is a look that works when you are really young and really beatiful, as this girls is.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:55 AM) : 

I like her shoes. so worn out and edgy


Blogger Leah said ... (12:58 AM) : 

so true. this look and the quilted coat below are worn very well by these two. you really know how to pick them!


Blogger MuseElle said ... (1:10 AM) : 

I am simply in love your with your blog. I wish you even step foot in LA. There's still fashion people here! lol As I always say you wear the clothes, do not let the clothes wear you.

Blogger flybynightkarmarepair said ... (1:31 AM) : 

I do not wish to sit next to this gamine on the bus just after a warmish downpour. That is a seriously impractical garment, that coat.

While this look intrigues me, and the elements work pretty well together, for reasons I cannot explain, no.


Blogger nikky said ... (1:43 AM) : 

i completely did not think i liked this ensemble at first glance, until i sincerely looked back at it and realized that it's a rather unique look.

her shoes, her shirt print, and her expression are a great combo.


Blogger Nick Leonard said ... (2:25 AM) : 

Really love it.


Anonymous Poppy scott said ... (2:28 AM) : 

why did you cut the photo's? Is it because you thought the tights and ripped top were to much?

I know a lot of people who dress like this. She has the right face for the clothes. Beautiful.


Blogger agent provocateur said ... (2:42 AM) : 

she reminds me of a vagabond
and i agree with your quip - it is definitely about how you wear it


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:07 AM) : 

Har har har,

you'd think, with that awesome train case, that she'd be able to afford clothes that fit.

It looks like she raided a combination of her lil sister's and homeless grandpa's closet.

But kudos for creativity though. She probably has better fashion sense on a more regular basis than I ever will.


Blogger julieann said ... (3:09 AM) : 

It serves to prove one should experiment & have fun when very young. Over 20 this would look more baglady than Kooky !


Blogger Hanna Persson said ... (3:51 AM) : 

right on.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:06 AM) : 

Individually, I do not think any of these garments are appealing. Together however, they tell a story and that is what fashion should be all about. Also, how old is she?!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:17 AM) : 

how taxi driver...


Blogger Pearl Westwood said ... (5:45 AM) : 

Love how she had the whole grunge look going on, then pairs it with the sweetest, girliest little suitcase ever!


Blogger Charlotte said ... (5:58 AM) : 

I love sums up British style. Not polished and glossy, but slung together, and intentionally mussed up!


Blogger Poppy said ... (6:13 AM) : 

A completely fantastic jacket, it really looks amazing on her.


Blogger ingefaer said ... (7:44 AM) : 

doesn't inspire me, but anything goes at that age - sweet face.

I just want her bag!

Right again Scott!!!

liking the boots. where could you get a pair like those?


Blogger The Clever Pup said ... (10:01 AM) : 

Awww Sart....
as a 40something I can not seriously be inspired by a girl one-third my age. Shouldn't she be in school?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:19 AM) : 

Can't say that I like her outfit, but I do like her spirit. Points for creativity.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:31 AM) : 

I was scrolling down, and just looking at her face I could have sworn this was going to be a picture of a 5 year old... a bit unnerving to be honest. Love the boots though.


Blogger Allen - East Hampton said ... (11:24 AM) : 

You were right to take her picture, Sart. What is she - like 12?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:57 PM) : 

i want those boots...


Blogger Bookworm said ... (1:39 PM) : 

I'm not a big fan of the actual outfit, but I love that suitcase. It's very vintage-cool.


Blogger SM said ... (1:53 PM) : 

cool! I wore my dad's coat exactly like this in the 80s. I think you have to be quite young for it to work, though.


Blogger The Bird's Eye said ... (2:05 PM) : 

i love the funky boots!


Anonymous aggy said ... (2:26 PM) : 

Your words- the essence of what personal style is. So true!

Where can I get boots like that? Shes so genuine and perfect!

Gorgeous photo! Her face is like an angel. Her brief case is crazy!

She looks so much like the striped and easy girl on Sept 14

...only london this is so posible

Blogger Fashion4Life said ... (6:05 PM) : 

so true! i completely j'adore that suitcase by the way!


Anonymous desertwind said ... (7:24 PM) : 

Right on, Sart.

She's a doll.

Why do older people think she won't turn it back-side-out when the weather turns?

(I did the same at her age and young is adventurous not stupid.)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:31 PM) : 

PERFECT outfit. Suits her so beautifully for her age and attitude. Very fetching. Would love to see what she's wearing 10 years from now.


Blogger MATERO FASHION said ... (9:50 PM) : 

wow.. just perfect!!!


Blogger Alex said ... (10:06 PM) : 

I know Billie! I worked with her in London, and she has the best sense of style--anything goes. Her personality is exactly the same, never a dull moment.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (10:21 PM) : 

Great shots! She's definitely one of a kind on this blog.
I want her brief case!


Anonymous m.edwin said ... (10:40 PM) : 

this girl is inspiring.


Blogger Hanna said ... (2:33 AM) : 

I love the shoes and suitcase. It's funny because it makes me realize how young I look. I cannot tell how old this girl is (although she does look young to me) but I feel like I look about the same age as her and I am 21.

I think London will always be my favorite of your cities - such a no-fear, I-like-it-and-that's-what-matters attitude. I wish you shot there more.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:19 AM) : 

She's got her own thing happening-- takes a bunch of disparate pieces, puts them together and makes them pop.

I bet a lot of people walk by her and turn around for another take, trying to pick apart how she works her magic.


Anonymous Annika said ... (2:21 PM) : 

I love the contrast of the smart, sophisticated shoes in the background. What made you split this into two photos rather than one complete outfit?

(Still I think if I saw this stomach exposing top in real life, I might think it was trashy)

Cute baby


Anonymous coco said ... (3:58 AM) : 

She's too cute... like the girl in the movie Lolita


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:45 PM) : 

I like this outfit in separates- not together. However, the bag just makes the whole thing amazing.

Great shoes. Where is her mother?

She's either 16 or 17. Not sure, but I read her blog. Billie JD-
