If I layer stuff like that I look like I just came out of a rubbish bin, she's totally cool instead!!

I love this mish-mash. The coat is fantastic and the rings with the am-length warmers look seasonably festive. Not forgetting the shoes, of course...

Blogger Rebecca Kiger said ... (7:56 AM) : 

Her outfit looks like it took inspiration from the splattered graffiti background. As long as she stands there all day, she's good to go! No, seriously, considering all the layers and combinations, it doesn't feel disjointed until I get to the socks. But at second glance, I kind of like them, too. Maybe she's planning to take the socks off when she gets to her destination.

Very cool. I especially like the layers of jackets and scarves. I don't really like the socks over the tights but good on her for doing what she likes.

she is fantastic! the whole look is so casual and relaxed. The deep blue scarf and the red velvet coat are perfect together. I love it how her shoes are cream and black not white and black.

' Carrie ' bundled up on a cold winter's day.

interesting composition of textures and colours in both her apparel and the background.

referencing many decades:
1940's bobby soxer on her feet.
1930's longer hemlength.
1960's sweater tunic
1910 scarves & shawls.
1970's gradient lens sunglasses
1980's punk zippered bag

Blogger moonlight savant said ... (9:34 AM) : 

I really like the way the clothing choices in the last two photographs reflect the character and essence of Mercer St as well as the subjects. It's interesting to see how a person's environment influences their clothing! Urban, eclectic, intelligent and sophisticated yet slightly worn. great photos

Who knew the Olsen aren't twins but triplets? Perhaps she's on a trip and doesn't own a suitcase so she's forced to wear all her clothes at once.

THIS is what I think of when I think of the Sartorialist. I would love to see more of these kinds of photos, and less of industry people.

Anonymous Best of Beehive said ... (10:20 AM) : 

I saw the top and was thought, "yes!" and then I scrolled down to her skirt, tights, socks and shoes. I'm okay with the shoes, but they get lost.

I am not usually a fan of layering, but this one works to perfection (or almost) in its genre. I particularly admire the bold colour palette.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:01 PM) : 

Her hair and glasses are very nice. I really like the top layers, specially the blue shawl. I don't like the bottom layers, gray shorts and top...but I can only see a little and so don't know if they are nicer on their own. I like the socks and shoes, but not with this outfit. I think these layers would have rocked if she had worn some military boots or ankle boots of some sort.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:01 PM) : 

I don't care what anyone thinks...those socks and awkward culottes leave me cold.

Blogger Stephanie said ... (1:05 PM) : 

This is a great photo and the girl herself is lovely, but her clothing looks exactly like the graffiti behind her, a hot mess. I really try to see the creative genius in this but it's ugly and I'm surprised why people are scared to call this out. It's like following a pied piper down the lane to crazyville. :)

She and her outfit are really pretty!
i like the mixture of so many different

Love your blog.
Hope that you like my blog:

thank you for visiting.

Anonymous Sappho said ... (1:21 PM) : 

I do like the red and gray coat with the gray beneath. But I find the socks and shoes really jarring. Maybe a boot would have worked better? I could never pull off such a look in a million years.


Blogger Alexander Daniel Designs said ... (1:37 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:45 PM) : 

Love the coat, shoes, scarf and layering, but the skirt makes her look short. Socks are cute but not ftting at all with the winter colours.

Sort of mid-80's Japanese avant-garde meets an Olson twin. Not sure if I like it, but she surely is stylin'.

(I think it'd work better for me with darker wooly or boucle' socks.)


Blogger Emily Jean said ... (3:22 PM) : 

super cool style


Blogger HStrang said ... (3:22 PM) : 

This is very Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen-ish. I do not like it one bit. Surely there was something else she could have worn? And those shoes? Oy!

I wouldn't do it, but she most certainly gives me ideas. Eager to read the comments now.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:46 PM) : 

I like everything until I get to the socks and shoes. I would have preferred a boot with this. It's just a little over the top.


Blogger Joey Becerra said ... (3:47 PM) : 

uh-oh I think its a little too busy...i'd prefer that she take off a couple layers


Blogger rightonmom said ... (3:48 PM) : 

Echoing another comment, mish mash soup! Kinda like it, but seriously one could only get away with this look in the city. Really liking the diversity of looks here lately.


Blogger ilalaaa said ... (3:49 PM) : 

i always ask myself where is the red line that separates good from bad taste...this picture really reminds me this question..because the girl has her own style and it is obviously not a classical or seen one...and for me it looks really confusing but if she felt that way she has the right to do it and i like it good taste just personality?


Blogger Christina said ... (3:49 PM) : 

Hobo chic? She totally pulls it off!


Anonymous dublinzine said ... (3:49 PM) : 

It reminds me of the book SATC where Carrie (as the author) says, "Samantha Jones had like twelve scarves wrapped around her neck..."


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:51 PM) : 

It definitely is playful and I like it. But, to be honest, I think it only works because she's got a certain allure about her. Most people would probably look bonkers.


Blogger fairytale said ... (4:15 PM) : 

wow, layers layers layers..


Blogger Gracinha said ... (4:19 PM) : 

Love the coat!


Blogger MSlattery said ... (4:25 PM) : 

I love all the elements in this look. The deep blue scarf unifies everything and the socks/shoes/black tights add just the right twist of humor. The mix of textures is daft and brainy all at once. The single grey tiger pantaloon leg is just transcendent. Love!


Anonymous Nadia said ... (4:42 PM) : 

I love her look. It's fantastic how all those layers work together to create the whole look.
I can't decide if I love or hate the socks, but then I imagine the outfit without them and it just wouldn't be the same. So I guess I love them, lol!
Loving her hair and those sunglasses too.
Very chic overall.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:15 PM) : 

I love everything about her look! It's so Yamamoto-Miyake with a touch of V-v-n Westwood. I don't know if its the combination of the colors--both on her and off her in the background, the out-of-doors lighting, the awesome photographer/blogger who took his photograph (he-he), and/or the cut of the pieces. However, it all works together. I love the layering...if you're gonna go for lots of layers, go for it big like she did. And, boy, did she ever! Her hairstyle and her glasses just gave her outfit the right attitude, and her socks added just enough kitsch so that there's a bit of fun with her look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:50 PM) : 

Blue, red and grey should often be seen!

Loving the different lengths, shapes and contrasts. Stong and bold -but more importantly I'd be interested in what she has to say.

Love the layering. It looks so easy and as if she threw on some things. But it's very well put together. The glasses and hair make the outfit more elegant. Great!

Blogger Tammy T said ... (8:53 PM) : 

I'm not 100% sure about this style - it's a bit frumpy. But I do like the idea of layering and the fact that she is experimental.


Blogger vic8760 said ... (8:55 PM) : 

ive never seen so much personality in a single design, its a grunge look thats hard to decipher for the average person, it speaks sophistication, she could be an artist.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:32 PM) : 

I'm sorry, but this isn't working for me. There's too much going on here, and they're all saying different things. This is Annie Hall after she discovered crack. It's an urban Ghillie Suit (Google it, fashionistas), the sartorial equivalent of Tourette's Syndrome.

Sorry, I'm just being honest, dears. Sometimes, you just have to call it when the empress has no clothes.


Anonymous Theobroma said ... (3:47 AM) : 

Love the mixture of lengths; I count, like, seven or eight layers. It's like nested folders containing the secret files of her personality. It's also cool to see someone wearing that many rings so casually, the mitts set them off nicely. And those shoes are badass.

That coat is crazy beautiful, and just anchors the whole thing. I'm really inspired by the mixture of gray, deep red and brown with rich blue. So unexpected. I think I might try a variation on this scheme tomorrow.

Really a very thoughtful, interesting and self-assured look which strikes me as very mature and sophisticatedly complex for someone so young.


Blogger Krocagator said ... (7:35 AM) : 

The socks seem to say, oh I don't take any of this too seriously. But with how well (and modernly well!) the rest of the colors and textures and densities work together, it seems false to even suggest she doesn't care if the socks "go."

Anonymous KKristie said ... (9:24 PM) : 

A shorter skirt - at least shorter than the red coat - and high heeled booties would ve given her a nicer silouette. Anyway love the combination of blue, red and grey.


Blogger Ilaria, Il filo di perle *vintage* said ... (6:01 AM) : 

she is fabolous!!!!


Anonymous Emilie said ... (11:48 AM) : 

Wow. Her face is so amazing. But I agree with those who think this is a bit too much. In my eyes, the outfit would be perfect if she took of the redish coat, the trousers, the socks and switched out the shoes with some totally black ones. Then she would look so elegant. But sure, she is independent who dares to walk out with this outfit. Really outstanding, indeed.

there in nothing feminine about this ensamble. she is young and as such you can pull off a black garbage bag as a dress, but that doesn't make it a fashion statement. layers don't represent sartorial immagination and grand statements. she was probably just cold :)
