What I Wore: In Theory

Jeans, KappAhl; dress worn as shirt, Gina Tricot; booties, Fly London; Scarf, hand-me-down from a friend; socks, old tights cut down and worn all scrunchie around my ankles.

This outfit is from last Friday, and I'm still not sure. In theory, I love it. In practice, the scarf fell down all day, the socks wouldn't stay where I wanted them and I'm not sure if rolled cuffs are appropriate for fall. Regardless, in theory and in photos, I love this outfit.

Do you have outfits that were only ok on you but that look amazing in photos?


PS: You may have noticed that I've pretty much only been posting outfits lately. I'm afraid that that's what it's going to be for the foreseeable future, since time is practically non-existent, and I want to spend what spare time I have enjoying being in France.  Also, in an effort to get more done, I've pretty much stopped tweeting. I'll be on every now and then, and I'll still tweet when I am putting out a new post, but if you want to get in touch with me, please leave a comment or drop me a line at rosie.unknown@gmail.com.


  1. Awww you look great, totally perfect outfit!

  2. Rolled cuffs are just fine! I am doing them all over since I don't really like to wear heels anymore and my jeans are all extra-long! Lovely little world here, happy to be your newest follower! XX!

  3. I think you look great! Sorry it didn't stay put! You're in France?? Lucky you!! I didn't know that! I have to agree with you...HAVE FUN and enjoy it while you still can!!

  4. well you look stunning in the photograph anyway!

  5. umm I get the same thing sometimes, but it's more, me putting together an outfit in my mind that I would think would look good, but when i get the actual pieces on.. not so good!


  6. i really like this outfit especially because of the head scarf. its a very bohemian look. very beautiful.

  8. I love the head scarf!

    RE your comment on my blog: I think the reason why people can be really mean about my nationality is I am one of 1,200 Americans at this university. The city is run rampant with us! haha I assume a lot of those Americans are rude and ignorant like the stereotype, which is why I think a few people write me off the minute I open my mouth. However, I've noticed the Brit/Scots are much more accepting of me than other exchange students. The biggest problems I've experienced have happened with one Australian and that Norwegian girl.

  9. nice headband! it really brightens up the outfit! =)


  10. I think your outfit looks really cute. Funny thing is I think my outfits look cute UNTIL I see them in a photo. Then I hate the whole thing.

  11. it's those shoes again! i lurve em!

  12. that dress/shirt is gorgeous! the sheer sleeves - oh, i'm in love!
    and rolled cuffs = definitely ok for autumn. in fact perfect for autumn. it's a transitional thing.
