Emma Roberts in NYC

Posted on May 07, 2012

We’ve been totally cranky about the weather lately. We had a winter that was essentially an extended autumn that blurred into spring, and then as soon as we were officially in spring, the weather turned unexpectedly cold. Worse are those days that start off cold, get hot in the middle, and then get cold again later in the day. It’s wreaking havoc with our wardrobe choices so you can imagine the drama around here. And we don’t even leave the house that much, what with being chained to our desks 60 hours out of the day and all. But we want our warm weather! We want to put on cute spring clothes and sit at our desks for 60 hours a day!

Anyway, this is all a prelude to saying to Emma:

Emma Roberts shopping in NYC.

Louis Vuitton Leopard Stole

Girl, you’re dressed like it’s October but we can’t help saluting you for looking so cute.

She really isn’t a dressy-dress kinda gal, is she? She always looks a thousand times better in a pair of jeans than she does a gown or even a cocktail dress.

    My kind of cuteness too! Probably because this is exactly how I would dress, from the suede booties to the little rip in the jeans to the casual hair and big sunglasses. But I’ll need to borrow that leopard scarf (stole?).

    Edited to add: oh Lordy I just looked up the price ūüôĀ

    • Ouch. Me too ūüôĀ

    • MilaXX

      It’s a LV scarf, I’m not even gonna bother.

      • When I see Prada,LV, Chanel, etc. I don’t even check. Might as well just learn to sew.

    • Karen Tully

      Yeah, but you can probably find a knock-off at a clearance house for about $5.

      • Holler. I’m sure the stole is incredibly soft and made from the finest silks in all the land and rinsed in the tears of a baby panda, but that price is ROUGH.

        And Karen’s absolutely right — you can find a way cheaper option that outwardly looks exactly the same, minus the “Vuiton” logo at the fringe (which I’m not crazy about anyway — it just serves as a visual distraction to me… “What’s that? Do you have a fuchsia stain on your scarf?”). I would feel weird about spending 10% of the given price on a scarf, but that also may just be the plight of the broke undergraduate.

        • Qitkat

          I wondered what that fuchsia was, did not realize it spelled “Vuitton.” Silly me. And you don’t just have to be a broke undergraduate to wince at that price. But clearance price *5 bucks*. Really? I need some of ya’ll to take me shopping ūüėČ

          • formerlyAnon

             Like everything else, the secret to really brilliant knock off shopping is *time.* You make the rounds (physical & on line) regularly, & you get to learn where to look for what, & when. & you develop your sources of intel Рcomrades in the hunt, special salespeople, particular sites/sellers on line.

            It exhausts me just thinking about it.

          • Qitkat

            Moi aussi. Good points.

            My interests in spending that kind of time/effort lie elsewhere.

          • Snailstsichr

            I have a $5.00 leopard print pashima I got from a street vendor in NYC. It isn’t as sheer or long as Emma’s scarf, but I liked the price. I buy them by the handfulls when I visit.

      • Rand Ortega

        ¬†Even better Ebay, Portero, Fashionphile et al has used (pre-owned) 1’s for much less.

  • Sobaika Mirza

    If memory serves, every time I see her in a gown it’s in a drab color.

  • MilaXX

    Pick any day last week and this may have been a weather appropriate look. Cute!

  • Judy_J

    I think she looks great.¬† I would totally wear that outfit if it were cold enough.¬† As it is, we’re already seeing temps in the ’90’s and it’s only the first week in May.¬† I’m dreading another long, hot summer.

    • Oh,but won’t it be great to see TLo lambaste the silly celebrities in hoochie clothing?

      • Judy_J

        Well, that does make the heat more bearable!

    • formerlyAnon

      ¬†What I resent is the fact that around my parts, the temperature’s still been up in the 80’s after 10 at night. They keep saying it’s not going to be as hot as last year, but I’m bracing myself.

      (Sorry for such a completely irrelevant as well as uninteresting topic, but you two DID start the whining about the weather, TLo.)

  • Love that she coordinated the glasses with the scarf.

  • VeryClaire

    Really? Jeans, a t -shirt and a scarf? ¬†I can’t get too excited about this as a fashion statement but I am happy to know that you guys find my standard Saturday errands garb to be so cute. Who would have guessed? And I’m only about 20 years older than her!

  • scrappy1

    $860 for a scarf?¬† THAT scarf?¬† I don’t care how much money you have, that’s just stupid.

    • Caaro3

      Obscene.  Emetic.  I feel like I just took some Ipecac.

    • That’s $200 more than my rent. I could imagine spending that on something fabulous, but a single LEOPARD print scarf? wtf.

    • Lina_bee

      ¬†Let’s assume it was a gift…

      • From Auntie Julia, who can afford it.¬†

  • I don’t care if that scarf is Louis Vuitton, it looks like something you buy from a street vendor. But I love the booties and she does look cute.¬†

    • sagecreek

      Exactly. Leopard print always looks very Walmart to me.

      • rawrgrowlrawr

        ¬†Same. I tried to visibly substitute the scarf out with one in a different print, but my bias against animal print anything is too strong. I see it and my inner bitch screams “Tacky! Cheap! Burn it now!”

  • I totally sympathize with this dressing like October thing. Up here we’ve had days when it’s in the 80s and days when it’s in the high 40s or low 50s with wind and rain. Her long sleeved t-shirt looks like it isn’t too heavy if the day warms up, and it looks as if she had a jacket which she’s taken off, so she was smart enough to layer when the morning was cold. Good for her.¬†

  • jw_ny

    agreed that it’s not spring like attire.¬† I assume she regretted not dressing in different layers, seeing her in long sleeves, carrying the jacket, wearing the boots, the scarf….and then looking past her and seeing others in short sleeves!¬† poor dear musta really regretted her choices made earlier in the day…

  • piecesofconfetti

    Also in Philadelphia and I can deal with the chilly weather (somewhat), but I am craving some SUNSHINE. I swear, my husband and I are depressed and mopey from lack of sun. I guess I couldn’t move to England, after all.

    • piecesofconfetti

      But Emma looks cute.

  • granddelusion

    A bra that fits would do wonders.

  • See, living in SF, gentlemen, we deal with the cold to hot to cold thing, all the time.¬† It actually makes life simpler.¬† You wear layers, and you jettison the “seasonal clothes” notion, cause there really aren’t any here.¬† Emma looks like a nice young SF chick caught out shopping on any street here, on any day of the year.¬† Albeit a far more expensively dressed one.

    • Anathema_Device

      ¬†Ha! I was going to write the same thing. Great minds and all that. I went to my son’s play this weekend in straight-leg jeans, oxford heels, blouse, patterned cardigan, leather jacket, and scarf. Well, I carried the jacket and scarf in (when it was 70 degrees) and put them on when I left (55 or so degrees). Tying the scarf on the purse is lovely and useful accessorizing trick.

      • ¬†And oh Ms D. I expect you were the most stylish Mom in the house.

        • And in the South in large crowds, the air conditioning usually has one setting: full blast. You’ll freeze to death in the summer if you wear summer clothes. We used to always keep heaters and jackets in our offices in the summertime when I taught college. Too freaking cold in there!

  • Caaro3

    Huh? ¬†Don’t get.

  • formerlyAnon

    The fact that I am ready to condemn the entire outfit for the leopard print stole is pretty conclusive proof that my prejudice against animal prints is edging over the line into “irrational.”

    She IS cute.

  • lonepear

    ¬†She looks so much better in this casual outfit than I’ve ever seen her on the red carpet.

  • marilyn

    She looks more like a shoplifter than a shopper.  The hole in her pants was cute, say, 25 years ago.  Now it just looks pathetic.  Carrying an expensive bag or wearing an overly expensive scarf does not fix this.  Is she camping in the wilds?  This kind of reverse snobbery in dressing is SO over.

  • Lina_bee

    I envy your weather. Spring hit us here in South Texas in January, and we’ve had highs in the 90s for a month. ALREADY. Compared to having 10 1/2 months of summer, your NY weather sounds gorgeous!

  • She looks like a blond Natalie Portman in those glasses.

  • AC

    I want her sunglasses!

  • TieDye64

    Not that this is an earth shattering look or anything, but I don’t know that I’ve seen her look better. So much better than her red carpet looks. Very cute.

  • She totally looks cuter on the street than the RC.

  • i’ll take that scarf, now. ¬†the rest doesn’t interest me.

  • KathKo

    well, if I trust the weather, we’re actually in the middle of October. I expect some snow any day, now.

  • Seriously TLo- what is with you guys and this girl? why do you like her so much? Pre-ripped over-priced jeans and unmentionable-color awkward-height¬†pseudo-cowboy boots? is this not the same thing every other woman her age is wearing? Sorry, I don’t get the¬†infatuation…

    Also can someone get this woman over to Nordstrom stat! she needs a bra that fits- if I can see your bra under this shirt, girl, fix that. ¬†If I can get a 32F, and no one can tell I’m wearing a bra, bam, we’re good. ¬†Your scarf could buy you at least 10 top of the line bras and it would actually keep those pups at bay- that scarf- well, the jury’s still out on that.
