Taylor Swift in NYC

Posted on November 23, 2011

We’re pop culture/fashion bloggers, which means, by definition, we’re cheeky little bastards. So when, somewhere along the line in our opinionating, we offered that Taylor Swift makes our teeth ache and our asses itch, we were delighted to find that many people were highly offended and put out that someone on the internet said something less than kind about a highly paid celebrity. Gleefully, we continued to mention our dislike of her whenever we got the chance.  Sorry, but that kind of stuff is like mother’s milk to us.

But really, Swiftians. You should just calm down. She hasn’t made it onto our Celebrity Hate List, after all. In fact, our true feelings about Taylor don’t really run that deep. We just find her irritating and twee to a migraine-inducing extent. We can even occasionally compliment her, like right now as we note that her streetwalking outfit is sassy and cute. Of course, we’re going to have to follow that up by saying it’s a bit too primary-colored and that the cableknit tucked into the waist band might not have been our recommendation here. But still: cute.

Let’s talk about the bag.

Fendi New Silvana Bag

It’s sharp and chic. Perhaps a bit too mature-looking for Taylor, but a pretty killa bag nonetheless. And just to give y’all something to discuss other than how mean we are to poor Taylor Swift…

      I do like the blue Fendi, but of all the designer bags out there, this would not be my choice.  The gray and yellow one are a definite Nay.

      She looks great when she’s not doused in sequins, tulle, and fairy dust.

      Isn’t she cold?  Everyone else is wearing parkas and jackets… and her poor little legs are all bare.  But I like the lipstick with the primary colour pairing.

        It’s been unseasonably warm in NYC lately, so most people are overdressing for the weather. Lots of wool coats and scarves even though it’s 50-60 degrees out. If this is from this past weekend (which hit almost 65!), she’s perfectly dressed for the weather.

      What is that big 13 on her hand?

        It’s her lucky number. 

        It is a great example of the Swifty hichschool preciousness that I reckon as the source of TLo’s annoyance at her.

        13 is her lucky number, I’m guessing she drew it on her hand for her last concert? Or something.

        She does that on tour. 13 is he favorite lucky number. I have no idea why she doesn’t it wash it off when she goes out. She is 21 after all.

      Taylor Swift’s twee, bland-ness irritates me. She’s a very talented and pretty girl, just BORING, style-wise.

      She really needs to wear more saturated colors like these on the red carpet. They look great on her.

      And the bag is just… OK.

      Why does she have the #13 on her hand?

      NAY. I feel like I’ve seen this in my grandmother’s closet.

    • http://deeplyproblematic.blogspot.com/ RMJ12345

      I am of two minds about the Swift. On the one hand, her songs can be catchy and fun (Mean is my jam), I think she has talent, and she seems refreshingly self-possessed. On the other, she tries way too hard to be adorable, she’s written a lot of shitty (and surprisingly menacing and creepy) songs about boys she likes and girls she hates, and I’m very much pro-Kanye. 

      Regardless, this is actually pretty cute and shows a lot of style in my opinion. But what is going on with that Pisces sign on her hand? Looks juvenile, while the rest of the look is age-appropriate.

    • Anonymous

      She looks great here.  Agree she needs to untuck the sweater then she would be very close to a WERQ for a Gal on the Street.

      I like the looks of the purse and it sets off the outfit but it is not really my style.

      I love her entire outfit.  The mix of colors takes a pretty basic look and makes it quite interesting. 

      Love the bag also but it’s more interesting in one of the colorways that shows contrast on the flap.  Still, the blue bag is pretty great.

    • Judy_J

      I like the bag, and though I’m not a fan, I admit she does look cute.  What’s with the number 13 tattooed on her hand?  Or is it a stencil of a capital B?

        Maybe she’s sporting the unlucky number to show us she likes to live dangerously?  To give her an edge??

        I think it would have been considerably elevated had she NOT tucked the sweater into the waistband.  I mean, really!  Who tucks a sweater into a skirt like that?  Overall pretty cute, though…and Taylor Swift makes me weep for the days of really good country music.  You know, when you could distinguish that it was country music and not soft rock or whatever the hell it is now.  But I digress………..

            • MilaXX

              Let me put it this way. Taylor’s young and barely 20. The bag is cute but the beige and the yellow look better suited for the over 30 or business-y crowd. On it’s own they are all nice bags, but if she was carrying it, it would look like she was carrying her granny”s purse. Especially with this outfit.

    • Julie Fountain

      Yea! I love it. Especially the blue one.

      Yea the bag!  I like all the colors.  She looks adorable, too.  Isn’t she cold, though?  Everyone in the background is wearing what look like warm coats.

      Tucked in sweaters are a big no no.  One of those things you were told in childhood not to do, like white shoes after Labor Day and mixing black and navy blue.  Even when you’re as skinny as she is, it just looks lumpy and awkward.  The shoes are cute though.

    • Anonymous

      I suspect she tucked her sweater in her skirt so I’d know she is thinner than I am. Which makes me hate her. But since it is almost Thanksgiving, I will ignore my paranoia and forgive her.
      Especially if I can have the yellow bag, please.

      I never vote “Yay or Nay” on handbags because for me what’s on the inside is just as important as what’s on the outside.  I don’t care how chic, colorful, killa, or whatever the bag is, if there’s just one large unpartitioned space inside, I don’t want it.  (Even if price weren’t an issue.)  So, I abstain.

      Taylor looks cute but I totally agree with Rebecca Spooner about the Snow White association.  It jumped into my mind instantly, and it’s not a good thing to have jumping into one’s mind.

      I’m soooo with you on the Taylor Swift front.  I mean, she’s a great role model for young girls, blah blah and all that.  I agree.  But there’s just something about her I find irritatingly naïve and her eyes, ew, like slits?  I dunno, I can’t really stand her, for no reason  whatsoever.  I don’t listen to her music and I’ve never seen her interviewed, I just see her turn up in photos on your blog and others, and therefore – can’t stand her.  

      I like her bag, though.  And tucking the sweater in makes me twitch.

      • Anonymous

        Criticizing her clothing, her singing, her makeup, her hair, her career, her irritating naivete — that’s all fair game. But when you say “ew” to her eyes being “slits” it harkens back to slurs against Asians. Unacceptable. Over the line.
        I just had to say something about that.

        • Anonymous

          Whoa, alyce. I’m as sensitive to racial slurs as anyone, but there’s no way that a critique against the world’s blondest blonde is remotely anti-Asian.

          • Anonymous

            I did not say the remark was anti-Asian. Clearly, Taylor Swift is not Asian. But words have power and they should be used with discretion. Knocking someone for the shape of their eyes — the way they were born –using a derogatory slur that was used against Asians is my point.

        • Anonymous

          Fair enough, but TSwift isn’t Asian. Nothing I said references her ethnicity in any way. Nor did I compare her to any other ethnic group. She always looks like she just bit into a lemon. Like Renee Zellweger.

      The bag?  Yea!

      And can someone tell me what she’s done to her hand?  Is that permanent?  Is it a zodiac sign?  Does she like the number 13?  Did one of elementary school students decide to draw her something pretty on her skin?  *GASP*  Is she in love with 13 from “HOUSE”??? Can she be a lesbian?  That would be awesome.  :D

    • CQAussie

      Superb bag, I’d like one in the brown/beige/taupe and the blue/green one.  I like that skirt and the sweater but agree, not sure that tucking it in was the right thing to do.  Hate the shoes.  Correction – I like the actual shoes, I just hate how they look with this outfit.  Taylor Swift in general is a huge snooze fest for me and today is not exception.  I don’t really know why she has to look all cute and twee ALL the time.  

      Why does she have a number 13 on her hand?  Is that yet another hipster trend I’ve not heard of?

      Yea on the blue one.  Not sure I like the multi-colors of the other 2.

      The outfit is a step in the right direction. I like the color of the skirt, the lip is good, and the bag looks great. My main complaints: the tucked in sweater, the big 13 on her hand and, of course, the fact that it’s actually Taylor Swift wearing all this. She drives me up the wall. If I had to list one reason, it’s the feigned surprise at award shows. Every time.

        I remember doing that as a teenager back in the late 70s, early 80s. I was so skinny, I could tuck in a cable knit sweater and not have a lump anywhere.

      This is the best I have ever seen her look. This kind of quietly retro, preppy look is perfect for her without straying into Stupid Princess territory. (PS I am resolutely in favor of tucking in the sweater.)

      It’s hard to have an unbiased opinion about someone when every detail about them screams “high school Mean Girl who likes to pretend she’s an innocent little miss”. Anyway, I think the bag’s fine in photograph (though I like the blue least of all of them) but in practice it seems to look like it’s never had it’s protective plastic slip-cover removed, which is not a look I’m particularly enthusiastic about.

      I’m not a fan of patent leather in any color other than black ( wish the bag were in regular leather), but otherwise she looks adorable. 
      When you are as slim as she is, with such a tiny waist, tucking in a sweater is not an issue – it’s cabled, but it’s thin, fitted, and not at all bulky. It would have looked really stupid over the skirt, like a 1970s cheerleader.

      I like the Fendi bag, although I think it looks too shiny in the on-the-street pic. But I have to say, I owned that skirt in turquoise in 1969. At the time, I thought I was adorbs in it (age: 13) when I was really quite hideous. I have photographic evidence of the hideosity. But, you know, I was 5-something-small and she’s 6-foot, so I’m sure that makes a difference.

      I think the bag is age appropriate, especially in a bright color.  For myself, the blue bag is fine and classic.  I don’t like the other bags with the 2 colors on the front.

      I dislike the bag – although the color she has is the least unattractive.  I wonder what is with the 13 written the wrong way on her hand.  (I write on my hands all the time – hard to lose THAT note. – but it looks like someone else put it on her hand for some reason)

      YEA on the bag, no question about it.

      Problem with Taylor Swift is, she is one of the few decent pop musicians out there in the American music scene of today!

      Yet another bag that can be crammed full of stuff and used to beat off a mugger. YEA for the bag

      Taylor Swift looks like Taylor Swift…ya know

      I love this look. Chic and perfect for her. She chose the right colour bag, the blue makes it younger to me. Not a Swift fan either so not disposed to going ga ga over her…but can’t deny that she looks superb.

      Yea!!!  on the bag. Love it.  
      I almost didn’t recognize her wearing colors and all.  She looks cute.

      How is she not freezing to death in that outfit?

      YEA for the bag.  Why doesn’t Taylor ever look like the young 20 something she really is.  Now, I know this is NYC, so she elevated it a bit here.  She is very contrived though.  Would really like to see her looking a little more relaxed…like most 22 year old girls.

      YEA to the blue. She, on the other hand, is the sort of twee that definitely makes my teeth ache.

      Nay.  Way too conservative and old lady-ish for the average young woman…suits Taylor’s style though.  ;oP  It’s too shiny…looks like cheap vinyl.

      The skirt looks too high waist-ed and the bunching is doing unfortunate things to her hips.  That bright red lipstick…ack…not for a day look at all.

      I am old ladyish, so I love the bag.  It makes Taylor look preppy, along with the cable knit.  I think the whole look is smart, in a chic-nerdy way, and I’m generally indifferent to her.

        I agree with your smart, chic-nerdy comment. Good description!

      I love your opinions about Taylor Swift. I am a Taylor fan, yet it is all true. It has made me even more aware of her fashion choices and I am now irritated by all her neutral sparkly dresses. I wish she wore more color, more often!!! Only on tour she wears bright, and dark colored dresses!!!

      Yea . . . and she looks like she’s channeling Snow White. Not that it’s a bad thing.

      Very cute bag. Doesn’t make me dislike her any less.

      YEA! The neutral and the yellow would be so happy in my closet, should anyone feel the need to find them a loving home…

      Don’t give much of a hoot about her (though the New Yorker profile was interesting reading) – and I’m not sure her get-up, carefully styled or no, is worth featuring for discussion … but … I’d pretty much sell my soul for legs like hers.  

    • Anonymous

      She looks great, and while the strap on the bag is a bit odd, I still say YEA, especially the grey and yellow ones with their tri-tone action.

    • Lisa Farnham

      I think she looks absolutely fantastic from head to toe.  LOVE the bag.

      Never been a Taylor fan, Swift that is, not Lautner :).  LOVE the blue patent Fendi bag tho!

      Gimme the blue one! oh, damn, I see I’ll have to share ;)

      Taylor, ehh, whatever, she’s kind of cute here, and I like the slightly off center primary colors…

    • Ebony Dawkins

      Not in that blue color TS is wearing, but overall…YEA to the bag. It’s so nice to see a non-Hermes bag that’s not a Birkin-inspired design.

      Yea, that’s a great-looking bag.

      Love it. Especially in blue. But Taylor apparently likes it, too. And I hate that.

      She’s a country girl.  She’s never going to wear structured shoulders or spiked shoes.  She’s cool; I think.

      The bag & shoes are grandma meets preppy = not good. But other than that she looks fab!

      I like the blue bag, but not the other two. As for Taylor, I like her look better here than on the red carpet. She looks both sassy and classy which is way too rare with young female singers, at least the classy part.

      Taylor looks simple, chic and cute!

      The Fendi bag, on the other hand, is giving me EVERYTHING I NEED IN MY LIFE!!!!

      The end.

      I think she looks fabulous. But if that’s not a publicist’s heavily planned and orchestrated ‘random walkabout’ photo op, I’ll eat my head.

      I’ll take Taylor Swift twee over Zooey Deschanel twee any day! I agree with a previous poster–I like her for what she’s not, in many ways. It’s kinda refreshing to see a kid navigate all the crap Nashville and touring have thrown at her and still stay seemingly down-to-earth and relatively normal. “Taylor–the druggy and whorey years” have yet to appear. Not everyone needs to have an edge. Sorry. End of editorializing…

      Like the outfit well enough. Not sure about a cable knit with a thin pleated skirt, but like the color combo. Purse is okay, but a little mature for her, as TLo pointed out.

      i would love this catholic schoolgirl get-up on some else.  someone who doesn’t have piggy eyes.  love the blue bag and the yellow.  way too normal looking for me, though.  her glance says “here i am just walking down the street, totally unaware that everyone is looking at me.  check out my new fendi bag!”

    • http://angryfemur.tumblr.com Andrea Lane

      She should have belted the skirt.

      And don’t worry, boys, she makes my teeth itch, too. That is, when she isn’t causing me to fall asleep.
