On the Street....The Boys Department, New York

Marykate's very cute sweater is Crewcuts for boys.
Garance just shops in my closet (and by "in my closet" I mean the green shorts, not the heels!)

Wow- so chic in menswear, I wouldn't have guessed!


Blogger Michelle Bobb-Parris said ... (9:19 AM) : 

Love both of these. Great to see Garance in action, too :)

I've shopped in my dad's closet for sweaters and ties. Sometimes men's clothing has that twist, feature or colour way that one just won't find in women's wear.

Who is this Marykate lady? A fashion editor, or just a stylish woman? I've now seen two pictures of her on street style blogs in the last week and both times she was wearing those sandals and a mid-calf skirt, and looked beautiful! I would like to know more about her.

Garance has a really nice outfit !!!


Blogger mustownmore said ... (11:56 AM) : 

That skirt is awesome.

And all I can say is that Garance is very lucky to have a man's closet that is worth stealing from. All I've ever had the choice of was mouldy jeans and t-shirts covered in bits of plaster and paint (don't date a builder if you want to nick clothes...)

they both look great but i LOVE marykate's look. soooo chic!



Anonymous Young Sophisticates said ... (12:38 PM) : 

I love both looks! Both looks are somewhat classic yet with a modern spin - by adding a bit of menswear (or in the case of the sweater, "boys wear," I suppose), these sophisticates strike the perfect style balance.


Anonymous ray guy said ... (12:46 PM) : 

Garance always rocks - no matter what she's wearing! <3

Love shopping in the boys department (if only men's shoes came in a smaller size range too...)

Scott, I'll bet you could rock those heels way harder than Garance. I have faith. ;-)

I love Garance's outfit here. It's so utilitarian/masculine but the heels make it very femme fatale. She's like a Bond Girl. Watch out for that camera ...

It's kinda funny cause I'm short and small, so I always buy my blazers and jackets at boys department cause they fit wayyyy better than the womens smallest size! And this weekend I went into my boyfriend's closet and said "I need shorts!!!" So I took a great pair of khakis that I definetly dont intend on giving back!

I totally love the idea of shopping at kid's department for a fab. find...but sometimes, children's clothes don't take "bust line" into account and that could be a disaster. :P

On Marykate, it is cute and it fits perfectly. ^^

I love a fisherman sweater, esp. shrunken like that! but something seems just a little off in photo 1(proportions? teeny bit cluttered? too much girl & not quite enuf boy to balance? not sure). photo 2 is awesome!

Blogger Grace Escudero - The Afeminada said ... (2:30 PM) : 

I love the fit of Marykate's sweater, maybe I should try buying kids sizes since I seem to drown in some sweaters and cardigans. Garance is fantastic in heels, I love how she wears them.

Anonymous mary said ... (2:50 PM) : 

circling back to say -- swapping out the shoes in photo 1 for some of those high-heeled penny loafers that are out now would make this outfit for me. maybe patent ones, or in an unexpected color. another little nod to schoolboy/schoolgirl but still a sexy look overall.

Garrance looks fantastic. Fantastic proportions between the jacket and shorts. The loose tailoring, in beautiful autumnal shades are given a fabulously glamorous edge, with those shoes.

Mary Kate is aquiline. I bet she could literally put ducks in a row...I think she would love through thick and thin.


Blogger Alisa said ... (7:25 PM) : 

wow! a super cute, feminine and stylish sweater paired with a long skirt for the 50's look... that comes from a boys department?! she's a star. i'm really fascinated by this.
the fact that oversized mens clothes suit particular women is no news. Having said that, it's nice to see Garance pulls the shorts off very well with the tweed-y jacket.

Ak! Garance could not be dreamier - that delicate combination of totally put together (perfect nails, perfect jacket fresh from the cleaners) and playful, relaxed (the loose hair, the shorts, oh the shorts) and edgy, sexy, slightly intimidating (the whole thing would be so so different with keds . . .) - I have such a crush.

@Garance outfit. Looks great. I'd pick's in my fathers closet when I was a teenager (shorts, suits etc)(20 years ago). I remaked the pants from the suits to skirts - and it was very chic...The shorts I picked out and used was from the 60' - and I loved to wear them. I'm on the memorie lane now..
