Question of the day;

This is a scan from FRUiTs magazine: I love everything about this girl's dumpster-diving fairy princess look. I would totally wear her sneakers. What I'm wondering is whether or not her purple jacket with the patch and fox fur collar is a reference to the ubiquitous Balenciaga fall 2007 collection.

compare to

and if it is a Balenciaga shoutout, is it a

 or a?

Either way, I love her attitude and what shes wearing.

    I think it’s a little of both. Like, “God, Balenciaga rocks! But it’s too damn expensive!”
    I always feel like the Japanese can pull the craziest things off.

    It depends on how long ago the picture was taken because some fruits magazines or books just use pictures from the 90s. I don’t know. Still a good outfit to me. Plus, I love fruits.

    haha! Good observation. I really love the Balenciaga pants in the photos above!!

    they say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery so i’d say this one is a salute.

  5. Cheyenne says:

    i think it is, but kind of like a “haha i can make this myself, i don’t need to spend lots of money on it!” she looks cute, whatever the case :]

    i love how you put your own twist on balenciaga’s look

  7. Farren says:

    lol. this post made me giggle. but i do believe it’s a salute. then again she could’ve just come up with that idea on her own. =)

    ah, this post is too funny. I’m thinking that it’s a tribute more than an f-off!

  9. tanya says:

    i think it’s more of a salute but i would prefer if it was an f*** off!
    ps. love her shoes too

    I doubt it’s a conscious reference/homage: fur is huge in Japanese street style, especially the outfits shown in FRUiTS, etc. They even (particularly?) like the fur stoles with heads and paws attached.

  13. william shatner says:

    i don’t know lauren, i think it’s a little close to the mark to be an unconscious reference.

  14. modelizer says:

    I think that it’s in reference to but I don’t think it’s a finger or in honor of…I just think it’s a look she loved and wanted to try on her own.

  15. Missy says:

    I can’t believe you put the image of Jesus here with that finger gesture. That’s beyond disrespectful, a blasphemy, and lack of sensitivity towards Christians. Do remove that. It’s beyond foul taste.

  16. Carol says:

    I really like your personal style but the Jesus photo is very offensive. I’ll stop visiting for the meantime and maybe just come back someday.
