On the Street...Left Bank, Paris

Blogger Teresa @ good-grace said ... (1:06 PM) : 

incredible! loving the menswear-ish blazer ... and the juxtaposition of the sexy lace up heels and the slouchy, rolled khaki's.


Blogger Ingrid said ... (1:08 PM) : 

Those shoeeeees and glasses! Supper combination!


Blogger Maíra said ... (1:09 PM) : 

This screams power suit revisited to me! Love the shoes


Blogger Couture Cookie said ... (1:13 PM) : 

Very Parisian... love her oversized shades. :)


Anonymous Holly said ... (1:22 PM) : 

I'm going for all this "prepster" look...preppy with a tad of edge!


Blogger S.I.Q. said ... (1:25 PM) :

love it!

Blogger Tasha Gregson said ... (1:27 PM) : 

The shoes are amazing. A fresh take on the laidback, slouchy look.



Blogger IAMTHEANGELNEGRO said ... (1:38 PM) : 

amazing boots!!!


Blogger thatsorad said ... (1:41 PM) : 

Her shoes are rad! they are like boxer's shoes but converted to hot heals....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:58 PM) : 

This is the best. An look that anyone anywhere any age can emulate. Except for the shoes (which are great), doesn't scream "fashion victim," mutton dressed as lamb, or TTH (trying too hard). Great counterpoint to see-through lace minidresses on middle-aged women.


Anonymous The Photodiarist said ... (1:59 PM) : 

Are those Ann Demeulmeester shoes? Love them. The glasses rock too.


Blogger Jacqueline said ... (2:29 PM) : 

loving the wide leg rolled up trousers look =)


Blogger Zakuro Yugo said ... (2:30 PM) : 

Cool, Dandy Woman!!


Blogger Jenny May said ... (2:33 PM) : 

Love the shoes! The add a bit of sexiness to the menswear.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:50 PM) : 

I´m loving the blazer convined with her attitude!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:00 PM) : 

I love these "boyfriend pants" and super cool retro blazer! cool big shades too.


Blogger Marlboro Martini said ... (3:04 PM) : 

I love how chic this outfit is, that Jacket/ the trousers. And that belt really does finish it perfectly. If I'm perfectly honest I don't love the shoes, but they compliment the outfit.

MM x


Blogger Michael said ... (3:53 PM) : 

I love her shoes and her pants, she wears this look so well! The colours compliment each other.


Blogger Elizabeth said ... (3:58 PM) : 

i'm really loving those trousers. the shoes are killer too.


Blogger beths said ... (4:09 PM) : 

Don't like the rolled trousers because they add a careless (though studied) sloppiness that seems to clash. Love everything else. I wish to place one of those black protective rectangles over the sloppy cuff area.

And, to Anonymous, this woman is not mutton!


Anonymous Elise said ... (4:40 PM) : 

disslike the shoes, the pants, the tshit and the glasses. and the mood.

but the blue behind her i like...


Blogger Le Veggie Burger said ... (4:47 PM) : 

she is dressed like a man, but looks like a women. I love how the only feminine parts of her body are her head and feets. there is nothing more important!


Blogger UES boy said ... (5:04 PM) : 

the lines and the shape serpentine shape....all brilliant. I love the shoes most, however. They look like a modified pair of old bowling shoes (the kind you rent at bowling lanes). Maybe thats just because I can't see them close enough.

And the mens kakhis are brilliant. She wears it so well.


Blogger Gigi said ... (5:24 PM) : 

Agree, very nice shoes.


Blogger Honey Dawn said ... (5:41 PM) : 

With the exception of the shoes, I dressed like that in the 80s and the 90s...though maybe not the same designers, lol. Military khakis from the boyfriend, vintage Harris tweed jacket from a thrift, man's Hanes t-shirt and penny loafers. With the pennies, of course. Belt belonged to my late dad. Big ole' 80s tortoise shell sunglasses. The shoes bring this classic outfit up-to-date for the younger generation. Very nice!


Blogger Barbara said ... (5:48 PM) : 

I don't like her, particularly. I love the pants and the T, but the jacket and the glasses have to go. The shoes are cool, though. She looks grumpy. A smile might have changed eveything........


Blogger MIA said ... (5:50 PM) : 

great shoes. so simply but so cool and fashion.


Blogger sofiasophie said ... (5:57 PM) : 

quelle classe!
j'adore the combo, XL trousers+ A.D shoes + men's jacket.
Very stylish and very inspiring pic!


Anonymous Blink London said ... (6:09 PM) : 

Love the proportions and colour palette. Very cool yet understated. Fabulous and so Parisian!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:15 PM) : 

oooo love this--thanks so much for a refreshing break from platforms and miniskirts!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:20 PM) : 

nah dont like that one at all. seems colourless to me and the trousers are too wide for my taste. but glasses and grey shirt are quite nice...everythings a bit dowdy


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:32 PM) : 

I die a little bit inside every time I see ugly shoes on women. This is a take on men's boxing shoes which should never have seen the light of day on women.

I love the rest - confident woman wearing blazer like on a duck hunting excursion in the middle of Parigi.



Blogger TAILORED SOCIETY said ... (6:33 PM) : 

Love the blazer and the shoes!

Best regards,



Blogger Lolitta said ... (6:34 PM) : 

Love the Menswear inspired look! The shades are haute!


Blogger Ashley said ... (6:47 PM) : 

The wide leg pant looks amazing on her..and I am loving the lace-up booties!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:02 PM) :

Blogger the girl that stole the eiffel tower said ... (7:26 PM) :

love the slouchy mens trousers with heels.

its so distressed and weathered looking,its beautiful.



Blogger Gon said ... (7:35 PM) : 

Love the trousers and the heels! She looks so tough!


Blogger Rosie said ... (7:49 PM) : 

Wow, she looks fantastic! A little Annie Hall, a little glam with the glasses and heels. A good feminine twist on Menswear.


Blogger Francesca said ... (7:50 PM) :

Blogger Lady Macaron said ... (8:09 PM) : 

Yes definitely left bank, right bank women dress up more strictly black and scaaaryyyy and powerful-ish. This is one is very understated


Blogger ipopheart said ... (8:13 PM) :

OpenID fashionisfor said ... (8:45 PM) :

Wonderful. Love the casual menswear influence.


Blogger Noelle + Kendall said ... (11:23 PM) : 

We love her shades and that men's blazer look.

-N + K


Anonymous Anna Júlia said ... (2:36 AM) : 

I honestly think this pair of shoes is one of the ugliest I have ever seen. That said, I like the colours of her outfit, the shirt and the blazer. But flats and a smile would have made all the difference.


Anonymous Anni Hall said ... (2:38 AM) : 

Striking! LOVE the attitude.


Anonymous FvaD. said ... (2:58 AM) : 

Mom had a YSL shades like these in the 80s.

I <3


Blogger Allison said ... (3:58 AM) : 

This picture really reflects my ideal outfit, sexy with a touch of androginy,simple without being boring and with a personal twist that makes her stand out of the crowd without trying too hard.


Blogger Stjarna said ... (4:20 AM) : 

Love those lace-up booties!!


Blogger lunarzie said ... (4:25 AM) : 

love the boots <3


Blogger Gil said ... (7:10 AM) : 

GREAT! Wonderful to take mens clothing and make it feminine, even the shoes are feminized mens shoes. And her "tough" fighter's demeanor, she seems ready for a boxing match herself.


Anonymous Katy McDevitt said ... (8:51 AM) : 

Yes! Killer! Love!


Blogger Vitrinen said ... (9:29 AM) : 

I treid to read through the comments: but did not seem to find an answar to the formerly posed questen; are the shoes Ann Demeulemeester?

Does anyone know the answer?

-They are so cool!


Blogger Since Age Zero said ... (10:32 AM) : 

oh mon dieu! these hot lace-up shoes everywhere are killing me.

I want them all.

love the background, Scott.



Blogger Allen - East Hampton said ... (10:35 AM) : 

Love it.


Blogger the style spotter said ... (11:56 AM) : 

that is definitely menswear at its best!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:10 PM) : 

Shoes are Band of Outsiders X Manolo Blahnik.


Blogger Couture said ... (1:38 PM) : 

ADORE! The sexy open lace up boots add that little bit of spice to balance the pseudo-masculine.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:46 PM) : 

So into chinos right now. They're everywhere for spring 2010, as well.


Blogger Autour de toi said ... (6:01 PM) : 

The shoes make all.


Blogger Bellay said ... (6:36 PM) : 

I'm in love of ur outfit!!!!


Anonymous ChervelleCamille said ... (8:32 PM) : 

J'adore...very well put together


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

I guess the laced up heels are the next big thing in Paris? The slouchy khakis are just fantastic


Blogger Spider Pancakes said ... (4:03 AM) : 

the shoes make it
