Man and Bow

Man and Bow

What is a girl to do with such an oversized bow on her head?  So yes, is parked up on la tete and whilst it would be so easy to wear something equally  girly along with the bow, I couldn’t resist delving into the boyf’s wardrobe (it’s grown again since I last road tested his clothes…).  The bow seems to sit well with the slightly oversized clothes.  I say slightly because the boyf likes his things quite fitted and they can’t really compete with the oversized quality of the bow.  Every time I rummage through the boyf’s wardrobe, it always surprises me how easy it is to put things together simply because it is so edited and pared down compared to mine.  Initially I do have wee thoughts about maybe changing my wardrobe approach but then those thoughts quickly disappear as I think about my Aladdin’s cave, hotch-potch, ramshackle of a wardrobe (technically my whole room is my wardrobe though so it isn’t limited to just one cuboid unit…). 

Plus, how could a pared down minimalist wardrobe house things such as a big spongy multi-coloured head bow?

    you can definitely pull off the oversized bow! this style is almost editorial looking. i wish i had the boyfriend back just so i could rummage through his closet & borrow his clothes! :/
    p.s. i wish you lived here so I could model scout you! (im a model scout this summer for a local management center). you definitely have “the look!” 🙂

    That bow makes a cute hat and I love the Topshop sandals. I wish that there was a Topshop near my town.

    Every one of those looks is superb. The bow is so sweet when displayed against all those clothes. I really like all those trousers. Your boyfriend has impeccable taste.

    Ah I see you got the topshop sandals! They’re gorgeous.
    I love the background of your photos taken chez your boyfriends.

    I’m finding it hard to choose a favorite out of these looks but I think I’m going to go with the last one.
    I’m also thinking that your boyfrind has very good taste, I’d be happy to have any of these pieces in my wardrobe!

    The background is amazing, so dramatic. I like the fourth look a lot, a casual hamburgaler in a lovely hat.

    Susie – your fourth photo and outfit is utterly divine! Plus I completely want to nab your bomber jacket or is it the bfs!
    Your such a terror as you make me want a large large wardrobe instead of my neat, orderly minimalist one!

    I like the cartoon-y feel the bow brings about.

    You know, the bow looks so large and fluffy that it could work as an on-the-go pillow when you’re out and about and want to take a nap…

    Susie, please please PLEASE can we have some shots of your ‘Aladdin’s Cave’?! I don’t care if it’s not organised or anything I just want to see mass concentration of Susie goodness!

    Really great looks especially 3 & 4 (it would never occur to me to wear a jumper as a skirt!).
    Loving the idea of an Aladdin’s cave though! Who on earth gets joy out of a capsule wardrobe??

    LOVE the bow…though it looks like a poofy beret from the angles you’ve shot here, it’s great.

    Nice sandals! I wish I had Topshop in my city…

    Mr Smaggle is far too skinny for me to borrow his clothes. He does have a very impressive collection of brooches though…

    You’re one of the few people who could pull off something like this. I love all the looks.

    LOVE it! somehow, despite its size, it’s really not that drastic. looks fabulous with your dark hair.

    You look gorgeous! Love everything!
    Well my husband is much much taller and much bigger than me, so i guess trying is clothes is out of the question.

    I want to see pictures of your closet.
    Is it organized? How do you categorize things? I would love to know.
    You seem to have many clothes, and combine them so interestingly, I just wondered if you had a system. That may sound funny, but for me, a lot of wild creativity comes out of a highly organized place.
    I, for example, have to have everything in place, and categorized, then color coordinated > skirts, dresses, pants, etc light to dark. I keep shoes in uniform boxes (for the time being, they are in plastic steralite boxes from Target, which are the perfect size for shoes). Then there are bags….
    Closets are a creative project in and of themselves.

    1st and 4th pictures are my favourite ones. I think those are most masculine of all and masculinity = chic. It’s weird how it works… You’re lucky to have boyfriend who’s the same size as you. If I wanted to wear menswear id have to buy it. Sigh.

    Wow, his clothes fit you ever so perfectly, especially the pants and even the blazer. I really need to rummage through the few things the bf left behind at my place before he went to the US.

    2008-06-26 at 8:55 AM

    HEY ! I’ve been wanting to buy that bomber jacket from AA for a while now do you know what size the one you have on is?

  45. susie_bubble

    2008-06-26 at 9:56 AM

    The AA jacket is Medium… I believe it’s unisex…I wanted one but the boyf beat me to the punch…
    These were taken at my boyf’s apartment…he has lovely high ceilings and big wooden doors…lush indeed… though anything is better than the hovel…
    I’m afraid taking pics of the wardrobe is out of the question… it is in absolute disarray with no organisation at all…. though that will change when I bloody move out….which I’ve penned for the end of August…. now will someone hunt me a nice flat near Broadway Market….? Two bed of course, one room being strictly for the wardrobe…. ho ho ho…
