Okay. I felt nerdy when i wore this look. Somehow whats missing is the book which I'm suppose to be reading but alas the glasses and the clothes will suffice. I was paying attention to the beatnik style of dressing done by a subculture in the 1950s. Black turtleneck..check. intellectual glasses... check. black beret...check. But of course I never put anything on too literally. Its too cliche. So I like to put my spin on it. Instead of basic tailored trousers why not wear slim drop crotch cords but are actually japanese undergarment wrap ups which if unfastened will fall off like a robe? Hows that for beatniks living on the edge? Its like an Instant reveal when necessary:) Or instead of popular 50s ankle length pointed leather boots worn by the beatniks why not wear ankle length wedge boots with skull and snake prints for that instant graphic feel? Well all that subplots in my look is totally beatnik. All I need now is a cafe to lounge and read my poetry en masse.

Now THIS is called Statement Footwear... Really WOW! And the quilted cardi/turtleneck, rolled up pants, the bunched up bracelets, quirky headgear... Very very nice! Hyped!
Andre Judd

And forget to mention, I like shots that are taken amid conversation... That gives them such an interesting dynamism... Case in point, this look's first shot...
And also the mawashi's somewhat of a funny inclusion...
Andre Judd
hahaha ya i agree with you about the mawashi:) i was just hurriedly blabbering about the look but it is very accessible...very accessible. so hot to wear it. hehe.
I like my first shot as well because it has more spirit than a stoic pose non? my friend photographer likes to do that to me every time which is hilarious when i look at the rest of the captured moments. I look goofy most of the time.
