Too Practical For My Own Good

I'm often too practical for my own good. I never would have thought of putting teal socks with this look but this look would not be nearly as cool without them.

i have socks in the exact same colour :) love it!

 

Blogger Q said ... (7:57 PM) : 

This one's got the mad style! I think the blue socks are only part of it; the girl's charming!

 

Blogger positive_negative said ... (9:22 PM) : 

I've gotten into doing things like this recently- adding a pop of color like a bright yellow or a really vibrate red to an otherwise 'matchy' outfit. it just keeps your look from being boring I feel and during the winter when everything is soo drab it helps to have that punch to (at the risk of putting too much into color) brighten up your attitude.

i like the nonchalance of the gesture as well. and the lace skirt is super cute and not to frilly for her.

 

Anonymous the Fashion Informer said ... (9:51 PM) : 

Definitely agree on the socks. Plus, the utilitarian Army coat worn with a lace skirt and fur bag is high-low genius.

 

Anonymous jojo said ... (10:07 PM) : 

I love the fur bag as well.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:07 PM) : 

Does anyone know where her bag is from? Or at least the designer?

 

Blogger Jessica said ... (10:20 PM) : 

I don't know...I guess this look is a bit much for me, but somehow she pulls it off!

 

Blogger Claire said ... (10:42 PM) : 

very cute. I like her jacket too.

I do not love the fur bag trend going on this season.

 

Anonymous hotcoffy007 said ... (10:42 PM) : 

i love her style and the socks break up the bottom portion perfectly

 

Blogger caralyn said ... (10:55 PM) : 

Adore it, and frequently do it myself. My staple color palate is muted; black, grey, and military green, punctuated by candy colored accessories... Makes the look really pop. Plus, love the embroidery on the scarf.

 

Blogger mareGa said ... (11:20 PM) : 

OK, it is pale blue (gloves). My bad. But the cleaning gloves feeling its still hanging around!

 

Blogger Blue Floppy Hat said ... (11:20 PM) : 

Great shot, she looks amazing. I don't know which to covet more- her socks, the cream ankle boots, or her parka. The dress she's got on under it is lovely, too.

 

Blogger Blue Floppy Hat said ... (11:22 PM) : 

And even the furry bag doesn't look yucky on her. A true Sartorialista, this one :)

 

Blogger Emily Lin said ... (11:26 PM) : 

nice socks and I like her dress too :)lacy black on the top and light-beige fabric underneath.

I like the whole look, this girl is so cute!

oh and you look nice in your scarf--it brings out your lovely eyes.

 

Blogger Diane said ... (1:00 AM) : 

the socks brilliantly juxtapose her furry bag. I admire erratic behavior.

 

Blogger jawcey said ... (7:04 AM) : 

Yep - very charming. I've been contemplating getting some shoes like that. Her style gives me more incentive and ideas on how to wear them :)

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:09 AM) : 

I think the 'big coat' look works on this girl, it still has a kind of shape to it. I've seen a lot of folk doing the 'big coat' look and sabotaging themselves by walking around in a tent!

By the way... i really love the webstite. Keep it up.

 

Blogger Rafe Totengco said ... (9:08 AM) : 

Only the Japanese can get away with these odd yet refreshing combinations. Turquoise peeking through a grey bootie looks divine. The only thing that makes her demode for me is the cigarette.
I guess after fashion, it's her second vice.

 

Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (11:00 AM) : 

She looks great!

 

Blogger NATRIBU said ... (5:44 PM) : 

She is bold and original. I like her!

 

Anonymous Piccolina said ... (9:07 PM) : 

Why does smoking (when done properly) always look so COOL? Forget I said that. Don't smoke, it's bad for you. But she looks great.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:55 AM) : 

The bag is GUCCI. 85th anniversary collection.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:45 PM) : 

I totally agree that the pop of blue/teal from the socks really energizes the ensemble, but what I'm really drooling over is the fabulous dress or skirt she's wearing. I wonder if its a lacy black skirt over another skirt, or if its an all in one layered look...either way, its sensational!
