This post is borrowed from Scott Schumann of the Sartorialist. I loved his thoughts, as well as this lady's getup. There's also an interesting followup debate at the Sartorialist website (www.thesartorialist.blogspot.com)
A Less Narrow View
Often I read comments on this blog like "Shouldn't clothing enhance a woman's form and femininity? " or something of that nature.
I think this is a very narrow view of what clothing should/could do for a person.
Clothing only needs to keep you protected from the elements, past that what you do with them is your option.
This young lady is a great example of self-expression and intellectual dressing.
Nothing she is wearing really speaks to WHAT she is physically ( fat or skinny, tall or short, male or female) but her look speaks volumes about WHO she is mentally.
Is this fashion? I don't know but it surely is an extremely evolved version of self-expression.
