Hello Louis!


This is what I wore today. Then I logged onto Face Hunter and realized that I was unconsciously channeling this girl. Note the epic socks/oxfords combination. She looks weirdly familiar. Maybe I went to public school with her doppelganger?

This Face Hunter girl in purple and loou from wardrobe_remix remind me of dolls. Hello dolly!


Speaking of Hello Dolly, I have a really good story about Louis Armstrong. My one grandma was at a Louis Armstrong concert (probably in the 40s? Must remember to ask when and where) and yelled out from the crowd "Satchmo! Why do they call you Satchmo?" He must have heard, because he replied in that smooth froggy voice "Just a nickname baby, just a nickname". And that is my epic grandma Louis Armstrong story.

P.S.: I may love Lulu and Rumi, but I freaking hate drop crotch pants and crop tops.

Your outfit is cute! So is Loou! So is your grandma Satchmo story!

Hey, I've got that Nirvana t-shirt. Except mine is about 15 years old and I would never wear it out of the house!

I must admit that sometimes when I wake up in the morning it is my goal to get dressed and look like a doll :)

I have a love/hate relationship with crop tops. I could most certainly never pull off wearing one with my stomach actually showing, though thats for sure...

These girls are stunning and I think you're just as awesome as they are!

PS. I love your Nirvana tee. I'd like to get a white version and tie-dye the hell out of it.

Anna Pope said...

Love the tee.

I love cropped tops but will never get used to the pants. Those girls pull them off but I just can't seem to get used to them!

I agree with the stylish wanderer, you rock it even better than the Facehunter girl. And... I do like cropped tops and dropped crotch pants. Though I can certainly understand why someone wouldn't...

Ashleigh said...

Amelia said...

Nice outfit. I love the girl from w_r--she looks like a doll in the best possible way. Also, I definitely agree about crop-tops and drop-crotch pants--yuck.

Those jeans look great on you! They are the perfect shade

judith said...

To be honest, I'm not surprised that you found an outfit similar to yours on a style blog. It's a very common look.

Isabel said...

Hey "judith", where's your style blog?

Miss Woo said...

Yor Nirvana T is ace. And I kinda hated drop crotched pants, until I tried on a pair and was surprised by its comfiness, don't think I'll ever wear it out though...

judith said...

How strange, I didn't realise I needed to have a style blog to have an opinion. It's interesting how a comment that is only mildly negative put you on the defensive - should the "comments" function on your blog become synonymous with "compliments?"
I live in Montreal, a city where the t-shirt/skinny jeans/scarf/flats combination is ubiquitous, so of course I would think what you're wearing in this post is a "very common look." That said, it's very possible that you don't live in an urban centre, and so maybe it would seem more unique to you and the people around you. Everything is relative.
Not to say you don't look nice in this outfit - because you do - but I just don't see anything individualistic in it.

haha nice pose- at first it almost looks like you're scratching your head in confusion.

"crotch drop" pants are not bad but crop tops are...wierd.

love your outfit!
