What Are Little Boys Made Of? Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dogs Tails

The other day I was visiting Today I Like and I came across a great post about Boy by Band of Outsiders. Before this, I'd only heard and seen a little bit about this label from the usual suspects - Nylon and Frankie, but these pictures blew me away. It was how I wish I could dress if I wasn't obsessed with colour and such a magpie. These are just effortlessly cool.




I think I'm attracted to the dark muted colours, the subtle pattern clashing and the sleeve and pant lengths. I can see myself doing some re-hemming in the next couple of days. I think I also like their messy hair. I'm not much of a hair person myself.

It's a pretty cool lable, I have to agree with you. I adore the shoes in the last photo- they need to live in my wardrobe!
Not to mention that coat, definitely one to watch...

Gosh I love winter fashion. I dread summer. I'm not sure whether I like ' messy' hair, but I do like that fact that ' big' hair is creeping in.

I love this silhouette! Beautiful, classic colour palette. Restrained and so comfortable and intelligent.

I'm crazy about the hair. Big messy hair is always economical! No time expended, no expensive products needed. easy! more time for reading newspaper and a long breakfast =)

I really like the second and third outfit. The shape and colors are quite nice and appealing for fall/winter.
As for pictures, yes I take them all myself and I don't feel strange taking them in public places, just shy and sometimes silly! While I do take them in public places I however don't take them in areas of high traffic. They are all taken around my college campus and very rarely do I get "caught" in the act of taking a photo. It's usually very private and quiet where I go, or off hours.

I love this, especially the 3/4 length sleeves with subtle contrast. I love big messy hair, too – and I will post on that this week!

Ok. I'm officially, unhealthily obsessed with the second look.
Thank you -- I'm going to look this brand up right now, lol.
I really like that Lou Doillon pic in your banner.

fashion herald said...

the first photo is exactly how I want to look every day. the shoes, oh my!

The Collector said...

Gosh I could so totally wear all of that. This label is going on my watch list... thanks for the tip.

Basically my hair is messy like that, but I'm not game to wear it like that in public. Pony tail it is.

Sally Jane said...

I love all of these looks. I'm definitely going to have to check out this line. Thanks!
