1. women & men
2. women
3. what I wear now (anything but sweats)
4. dresses or blazers with jeans, always with boots
5. well cut suits by Jil Sander or Bottega Veneta
6. Marni and Dries van Noten, with some Topshop and APC mixed in (although on a teacher's salary, not likely; let's say I'm married to a hedge fund manager)
7. completely over-the-top avant garde stuff to go out in, and painter's pants and white tees to work in
8. Hmmmm...I haven't seen TV in a while. I think the last time I actually liked someone's clothes on TV it was Lisa Bonet on The Cosby Show or Justine Bateman on Family Ties! This really dates me, huh?

editor said...

^^lol, those images are sharp in my mind too - i think if you saw reruns of family ties though, you would change your mind - so many pleated pants...or maybe it's just me. both had that layered, soft, slouchy thing down pretty well. lots of off-one-shoulder looks...

Iheartfashion said...

Yes, I'm sure the late-80's fashions would horrify me now, but I think it was the layering that appealed.

editor said...

iheartfashion - but if you can find something in it to take away with you, something that sticks, then it's all good. should we talk about the suspenders? ;)

1. i would sell both. too much to love in each area.
2. shop in both. i'm an equal opportunity purchaser.
3. deep v tees and knits every day with denim and khakis. cashmere sweaters and boots or wingtips.
4. student? dior. so chic.
5. politician? mcqueen. to freak out the masses.
6. teacher? vince. cuddly.

1. men, maybe, to help the ones that need it take it up a notch.
2. both
3. cargos and cashmere sweaters
4. cargos and cashmere sweaters
5. maybe I could just work for a politican and wear cargos and cashmere sweaters
6. cargos and cashmere sweaters
7. naturally, cashmere and cargo sweaters
8. I do like joan clayton's style, but it's mostly on her, and I don't think it would work on me... n/a here for the moment.

(Is it at all weird that I don't own a single pair of cargos or a cashmere sweater?)

and I think I would like to be a classmate, employee and/or student of landis' up there.
