At first glance you really get that Stephanie pulls influence from a natural, kind of “60s/70s hippy” kind of place. When I stopped her she mentioned that she wished she hadn’t just changed out of her shorts because she thought it might be the cuter look but I’d say in these cool September evenings playing it safe with black leggings is still a fine choice.

My favourite piece in this outfit is the shirt. It has a great texture, and the flowery pattern lends to that natural feel throughout, especially with the canvas and leather bag and moccasins.

  1. This gal always looks great – I see always in a cute outfit around town.

    That sweater is super super cute! Love all the different textures in the outfit, as well as the colours.

    Nice find, Darrell.

  2. gorgeous! looking good girl!

  3. Can someone post something informative about moccasins on white people, racist appropriation or not? Preferably someone well-read and informed, not just an personal opinion or rant.

  4. Helloworld,

    You are quite correct- there is a veritable plethora of ill-informed moccasin speculation on the pages of the world wide web. From gross inaccuracies to patent misunderstandings regarding both the form and function of this charming and laden foot covering, it is difficult for the layperson to make sense of it all, separating fact from fiction if you will. As a long-time moccasin archivist, I could certainly direct you to a list of reliable resources (including a very amiable list-serv out of the University of Framlingham (Shropshire campus)).

    Yours,
    Dr. Walsden M. Harrington, esq. (PhD, Moccasin Studies)

  6. Dr. Harrington,

    Harrington, you milkfed nincompoop- your half-witted mumblings besmirsch the very foundations of Mocassinography! Your decision to link the explosion of mid-60′s American moccasin production to the Bay of Pigs incident in your unpublished treatise, The Sole of War- Mid-century Leathercraft in Crisis,was laughable, not to mention your amateurish use of the semi-colon in said paper.

    For those reasons, I would suggest that interested parties send a self-addressed stamped envelope to Mrs. Betsy Bowers, secretary-elect of the Pilkford Moccasin Trust. Mrs. Bowers would be happy to forward a mimeograph of the proceedings of the Trust’s most recent luncheon, rich ground for any devotee of moccasins.

    Respectfully,

    Dame Antoinella Jackson, Chair, The Pilkford Mocassin Trust

  7. she looks like a cute girl but head to toe american apparel isn’t my bag.

  8. ^As someone that works with her at American Apparel, I can safely say the only thing she’s wearing from American Apparel in that picture is the top. The shoes, bag, jewelry are all non-AA items. The black leggings could be from anywhere. Sounds to me like you just don’t like it when people wear anything from American Apparel at all.

  9. Remind me never, ever to buy that top. She is a great looking girl and the rest of her outfit is perfect… but the boxy shape of that top cannot possibly do anything for anyone’s shape. Love, love, love the moccasins!
