i'm not in love with the look. i'll be glad when the whole shapeless look goes.


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:53 PM) : 

Calm, cool and collected.

The choice of footwear is so cool and goes along with the attitude exemplfied by her colorful bracelets and tats.

I also love the detail of the eyelet dress.

Lots of detail here. A great summer look.

It is great to see chic women with tattoos. I have some large ones myself and it is nice to see others.

She looks great all year round.

She is the owner of Opening Ceremony, yes?

Love love love that store!

"You smell like my eighth grade boyfriend" (and also in various forms) must have been one of the phrases I used the most since that vid. came out. :D


Blogger zuccotto said ... (9:31 PM) : 

I like the dress (everything about it, including length) and the shoes... and the tats, and her smile - thus, her style. Refreshing.


Blogger Blaise said ... (10:11 PM) : 

That dress.. I imagine it to be somewhat like a loose overall, but it only goes up to the knees, as in the same length as that dress.. I think that'd be interesting..


Blogger upupandaway said ... (10:17 PM) : 

This is gorgeous. I love the tone on tone textures, the dress, shoes and tattoos are very refreshing together. I'd love to see what she would do in the dead of winter.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:55 PM) : 

Oh wow - the tattoos are a wonderful surprise! Gorgeous!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:45 AM) :

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:06 AM) :

Blogger Alice Olive said ... (8:47 AM) : 

So adorable and cute! I absolutely love those shoes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:25 AM) :

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:24 AM) : 

So pretty!

quote - "i think the shoes are rachel comey. not sure though" - speaking of Rachel Comey, i have those pants from her in twill, size 30, and my wife "stole" from me and worn them like crazy - as it is very long for her, 32" inseam, she would always bunch the pants up, not roll up, i mean BOUNCH UP, and fasten them with rubber band - i have to say that i really admire her for pulling off the look - it is comfy to wear and sexy to look at -

Summer- United Bamboo Shoes, I covet them!!!

I love how she looks! She has the perfect mix of casual, avant garde, fresh and functional. You get the sense of her true personality and spirit rather than just a "fashion statement." I think women should take a cue from her. She seems to have figured out a way to dress that doesn't scream a look, but instead reflects the essence of her spirit. From seeing the two pictures, I get the feeling from her that she doesn't let clothing/style rule her. Rather that her clothing is personally functional. I am currently experimenting with dressing more personal and functional. I think this is more modern and reflective of a less restrictive way of "feminine" dressing. Men have dressed functionally, yet with personal details/touches for decades. I think it's time women start to take a cue from them.

P.S. I don't think her dress is shapeless. It has a definite shape, it's just a different shape than one that would contour to her body. I think it takes a different kind of way of thinking about the body in relation to the clothing to be able to fully appreciate this shape. Does clothing always have to reveal? Some of the best designers have challenged our traditional notions of how clothing should relate to the body. Issey Miyake, Rei Kawakabo Junya Watanbe, and Hussein Chalayan come to mind. I see her dress as a part of that way of thinking.
