oh boy

It's taken me a while to stumble across this photograph, but the sight of Mary Kate looking all Annie Hall in this menswear inspired ensemble brought me tears of joy. I must add however, that the short burst of excitement upon learning she was wearing Olsenboye, the line she and Ashley have created for JC Penney was shot to pieces after a quick browse through the range. Lots of tacky logo tee shirts and not a lot in the way of the classic androgyny that the name would suggest. Luckily Swedish brand Weekday is abundant with possibilities where unisex shirts and tapered trousers are concerned. My usual sad pangs of 'if only they shipped internationally' have been replaced with excessive plans of buying up the whole range when I visit Stockholm next month, hurrah!

What part of that outfit is supposed to be Olsenboye? I've yet to see anything like that from the range, but when, and if, the clothes ever do become that gender-blurringly perfect I'm there!

Oh God!! i still wonder what was she thinking? why do they dress like homeless? and why do people think this is right?? besides, they are awfull! they are not hempling themselves with this kind of cloth, the only think i could save int his looks are the shoes frome the twin in the back, whoever she is...
