Dianna Agron in Los Angeles

Posted on July 11, 2012

Hey, Miss Lady Di! Listen, you just go right on ahead and shop for your organic corn or whatever. We’re gonna stand over here and do the blow-by-blow on your outfit.


Dianna Agron makes a trip to Whole Foods in Los Angeles wearing an American Apparel multi-stripe tee and a Anthropologie skirt paired with Tory Burch vintage square sunglasses and clutch by Coach.

American Apparel Multi-stripe Tee

Anthropologie Sky Wisped Skirt

Tory Burch Vintage Square Sunglasses with Logo

La la la, just shopping for my imported artichokes in a perfectly paired top and skirt and sashaying past the olive bar in my chunky heels; don’t mind little old me.

It’s a cute look, even if it does look somewhat unlikely for a grocery shopping trip. Kudos to whoever made the decision to pair that top with that skirt. It takes some confidence to mix two such items and she’s really making it work. We totally dig two well-paired prints.

The shoes are kinda meh, we have to say. A little heavy-looking for such a light outfit. Still, it’s all super-cute, if a little unlikely for such tasks as measuring out a week’s worth of granola or loading up on all-natural toilet bowl cleaners. Raising the bar there, Di. Now everyone’s going to feel the need to throw on a cocktail dress every time they’re low on pads and need to make a lady-run.

      nuh-uh, that t-shirt is way too boxy. Love the skirt.

      • TheOriginalLulu

        Yeah, I also think the shirt is a little too boxy. It’s making her look wider than she is.
        The skirt is really great on her. She looks cute, but it could have been better, since she was obviously dressing for the cameras. Nobody dresses like that to go to the fruit stand.

      • mshesterp

        I’m with you–i don’t think the shirt is flattering, although it’s impressive how well the two pieces coordinate.  Overall, the look is meh.

    • deathandthestrawberry

      Look at her, posing with her clutch as she strolls past the peaches. She looks like she’s in the middle of a catalog shoot.

      • Nectarines, aren’t they?  I know, I know: NOT THE POINT.  Nothing about that picture looks posed at all.  Totally spontaneous.

        • kimmeister

          The sign actually says peaches.

          • So it does.  They still look like nectarines to me.  I’ll be writing a strongly worded letter to Whole Foods later today.

    • moppet

      Cuteness! Interesting how the pattern on the shirt is slightly different on Di than on the model.

      It’s weird because the shoes are saying “I’m really out shopping” but the rest of the outfit is perfectly styled. And nobody, but nobody, really goes grocery shopping with a clutch.

      • Introspective

        i thought exactly the same. the clutch is what pushed this off the cliff from “i just threw this casual look together” to “styled for the paparazzi.”

        all that said, she does look cute.  

      • kimmeister

        The very idea of taking a clutch to the grocery store inexplicably ticks me off.

        • lbl

          That’s because it’s ridiculous.

          • NC_Meg

            When I was in high school, I went through a clutch phase. I carried one EVERYWHERE. Now I realize that carrying a clutch to high school was crazy. (I still love a clutch but in the right situation.)

      • alyce1213

        I’ve taken a small clutch shopping — but with a wrist strap.  Is that cheating?

    • Sarah Dickerson

      This is a total scrolldown fug for me.  That skirt and those heels are just tragic to my eyes.

      • ashipper

        Me too.  That skirt is hideous.  I thought she was going to look adorable with that t-shirt and some skinny jeans or something and then, bam, that thing appeared.

        • NC_Meg

          Ok, for a second I thought the bitter kittens lost it but you two give me hope. This whole look is so fug I can’t deal with it.

          • Sarah Dickerson

            I mean… I can imagine an outfit that would make that skirt work, but those shoes should be burned.

    • sashaychante

      Those are some ugly shoes.

    • blogless

      I was scanning down her outfit to decide if I thought it was cute and then I got to her shoes and my brain exploded. 

      Truly awful shoes.

    • I hate those shoes. The rest is real cute though. Not staged at all.

    • I’m all for mixing prints but I don’t know why this one is not getting a *two thumbs up* from me? 

      • kimmeister

        Because she has no waist in this outfit?

        • mayavaly

           Desperately desperately needs a belt and a waist.

      • The skirt looks cute enough on the mannequin, but it doesn’t seem to photograph well in motion — makes her look boxy in the behind.  Which I’m guessing she’s not.

        • mellorcr

          I agree, but I’m not sure it’s motion, it looks like the proportions are also off a little.  Skirt on mannequin either is longer or they have taken the same skirt and put it on a very skinny mannequin and then pinned all the excess fabric behind, giving a leaner look on the mannequin than you will get if you are a real person.

        • sweetestsith

           I think its because it isn’t on her waist, or on her hip, its floating in between and looks awkward. She needed to size up or down (I vote size down & natural waist for the skirt + boxy tee look) and put on some less ugly shoes. The clutch is freaking ridiculous!

      • BrooklynBomber

        It’s awful.

    • I don’t care if TLo hates them, I need those shoes in my life now.

      • alyce1213

        Love them too.

    • AnaRoW

      I like the shoes, just not with that outfit. They’d be cute paired with jeans.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Cute til the shoes – those are awful for this look. 

    • Hate the shoes, think the skirt would have looked cuter shorter!

    • NurseEllen

      I like the pattern on the model’s shirt better.  HATE the shoes.

    • Eva_baby

      The shoes are just out and out ugly.   The rest of the outfit…I dunno.  Something about the proportions of the skirt feel wrong.  Maybe it should be a bit longer?  It seems like the length of the skirt cuts her just the wrong way so she looks a bit stubby.

    • j_anson

      I dunno, I think it’s too much blue all together. But actually, TLo, I don’t know about, say, summer in NYC, but here in CA I totally would throw on a flirty mid-length skirt and casual shirt to go down to the farmer’s market, especially if, say, I was also meeting a friend for lunch or something. True about the comment below on the clutch, though. You want an over the shoulder bag for shopping, because you have to carry stuff.

      • Spicytomato1

        I was also thinking that her outfit’s not preposterous if she’d been out on a lunch date or had a meeting. I have been known to walk the grocery store aisles looking spiffed up like this, along with many others…it’s why the stores fill up at about 6 pm. It’s called after work shopping and most people don’t run home to change first.

        All that said, this is still probably staged. 

        • j_anson

          Oh, I’m always willing to believe things are staged. I just don’t think it’s BADLY staged. 🙂

    • Sobaika

      The outfit’s a little too fabulous for her ponytail and plain face. If you’re going to treat Aisle 4 like the runway, you have to do it all. See: Von Teese, Dita.

      • I don’t know.  I mean, us little people could go out and buy both the top and the skirt right now.  This is probably slumming it for her.

        • Sobaika

          We could. But us little people would not wear it grocery shopping. We wouldn’t take a CLUTCH grocery shopping. Many of use wouldn’t wear heels grocery shopping.

          Make no mistake, she’s put on the outfit for the photographers, and somehow forgot to do anything north of the neck.

          • j_anson

            I would. I mean, it’s a casual mid-length layered skirt and casual shirt. It’s not an evening gown or a black leather miniskirt, and it looks fairly comfortable. Some days you just throw on a skirt and sandals instead of jeans. I’m not really clear on why this seems so unrealistic to people.

            • sweetestsith

               I’m not either, clutch (and ugly shoes) aside, I see nothing fussy or over done with this outfit for daywear… Shopping in 6″ heels would be ridiculous, a skirt & tee with sandals? That’s just a cute outfit.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      sorry cant get behind this one, (or in front of it for that matter), skirt does nothing for me, and the shoes are an abomination….

    • RebeccaKW

      The shoes are hideous.  I actually like the pairing of the top and skirt.  Casual shoes would really have made this.

    • Kristina Toma

      I love that she wears clothes from Anthropologie so often. Makes her feel somehow more accessible and down-to-earth. And it’s also fun to look at photos of her and be able to say, “I own that, too!”  

      • filmcricket

        I really think they need to lock her down as their “face” like yesterday. Could you imagine a more perfect fit between a store’s aesthetic and the model’s?

    • Clueless_Jock


    • The shoes lose me. Otherwise, I’m on board with this look.

    • call_me_schmeg

      this needed some strappy flat sandals in yellow (or orange) and a neutral bag, not a clutch. whole foods is expensive…. but not THAT expensive.

    • Those are the ugliest shoes I have EVER seen.

    • “lady run” – thanks for the laugh

    • Jangle57

      ok with outfit but the shoes are just tragic; I’m not sure what they would look good with but this outfit is not the right answer

    • Perigee

      Love the glasses. Like the shirt/skirt, individually and as a combo, but not with those clunker shoes.  This is for posing, but to be fair, I often wear wrap skirts and t-shirts to the market. 

      And, I’m sure that someone as pure and angelic as Agron is a committed locavore, who buys only organic and humanely raised artichokes, produced less than 45 miles from the Whole Foods she shops at.  No imports for her.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      Awful shoes, and the clutch is too much blue.

      And listen, if you’re wearing a t-shirt tucked into a skirt like that, can you please not wear it one size too big? I just don’t dig the sack look. It looks drab.

      • Sara LaBatt

        Agree on the sizing, there’s something wrong with how the pieces physically fit together.  First I thought it was a bad skirt waistband but now I think maybe it’s too much tee shirt to tuck in.  I like the blues together but seems like she has the boy version of the shirt, with more wide stripes and without the little narrow ones on the model.

    • I second the “too much blue in this” and “who goes to the market with a clutch?”   A cute flat sandal would have redeemed immeasurably. But… that’s also some quality print-mixing there. I can forgive her the rest.

      • MilaXX

         For me it’s not so much the fact that it’s a clutch as it is *that* clutch. A more causal style one like those sold at target and a pair of flats or wedges would have worked better.

    • Love her. Love the look. Hate the shoes. While you are our shopping, I need milk…and ice cream…and a b-day cake for T-LO.

    • I dislike this very much.  

      • halleygee

        Me too!

    • Violina23

      I covet that skirt

    • miagain

      I always wonder how we get the rundown on the designers of all these clothes… is it just that Tom and Lorenzo recognize everything..or is there a handout by the publicist trailing out of the shot?

      • The image of a publicist running behind her with pamphlets…**snort**

      • judybrowni

        i assume they are designer psychics

    • Like the top, but not the skirt.  The shoes are horrid.

      • BethR52

        I’m the opposite.  Like the skirt, but not the top.  The skinny stripes hurt my eyes.

    • lonestarlola

      I like the pattern mix but the fit’s all-around too big – top is too baggy and the skirt is a few inches too long. Those shoes? Dear gads, woman! They look outdated and cheap, like something I’d see on a thrift store rack and not glance at twice.

      Lady-run – first giggle of the day. Thanks, guys. 🙂

    • I dislike her because she’s always out in the Anthropologie clothes I WISH I could buy 🙁

    • julnyes

      Lady Run? Bwahaaaaahaaaaaaa

      anyway – cute outfit (wish Anthropologie was a wee bit more affordable) but the shoes do seem a bit heavy.

    • Larkin21

      Yup, love everything but the shoes. And while that’s a great looking, expensive (to me, not to celebrities) outfit, it also looks very comfortable and casual. If I could afford to grocery shop in that, I totally would.

      • MilaXX

         You can. I prefer dresses to jeans in the summer. The only exception is my tshirt are likely from Target and my skirts are from the Nordstroms Rack or Ross.

        • Larkin21

          Oh, I’m the same way. I practically live in skirts and dresses in the summer. Kohls or Ross are typically my stores of choice. That or Goodwill. I just meant that if I could afford that exact outfit, I’d do my grocery shopping in it. I don’t consider it too dressy for everyday errands, even if it is well out of my price range.

    • Really? A casual skirt and a T-shirt are considered too dressed up for shopping? I despair for you Americans

      • kimmeister

        Most of the time I go grocery shopping, it’s right after work, so I am wearing 3″ heels and clothes much more formal than hers!

    • guest2visits

      I, for one – do not like the T and the skirt together. In the first pic it even looks like she tied the damn thing around her butt.
      The top and the bottom are both nice; but I can think of a million other things to pair them with – just not each other.
      Hate the clunky sandals and the clutch. A ‘clutch’ for an outdoor produce market, really?  Love the Tory Burch shades.

    • amf0001

      I like the niche she is carving out for herself,  grabbing attention without being remotely hoochie.  Like a more adventurous princess kate…

    • Y’know I’d love to go behind the TLo curtain on this one and understand the process. Do you guys spend all your time scouring clothing sites online so you can identify what she’s wearing?  Or do her ‘people’ put out a press release with details of what she’s wearing every time she goes to Whole Foods?

    • alyce1213

      I love it all, even the shoes.  If she’s REALLY walking around, these shoes are better than a skinnier strap sandal.  Better support, more comfy, and I think they ‘re damn cute.
      Classy girl.

    • aristida_girl

      I like all the pieces separately but don’t really like them together..

    • marilyn

      Don’t like th eshirt and top together.  Skirt is PM and th shirt is AM off the rack.  The shoes are dowdy.  Okay, she got the navy/white thing.  But this looks like a laundry day, when she had to pull stuff out of the back of the closet.  And NO, just because they have the same colors, does not mean that they should be worn together. 

      The more I look at that top, the more it looks like something for a little boy, from Penneys or Sears. 

      I assume that she did not expect to be evaluated like this when she is buying groceries, or whatever.  But, this is more what she should wear at home when she is waiting for her clothes to be laundered.

    • I really love her style. It’s fresh, easy, unique. And major sunglass envy from over yonder.

    • Apparently peaches are in season, they are everywhere.  I will be making a cobbler tonight. 

    • cute but yeah, shoes are a bit too much. some sandals or flats would’ve been totally kosher, girl. 

    • TieDye64

      Cute, except for the clunky shoes. I like the shades and she looks good with her hair pulled back like that, but I gotta say shopping with a clutch…hahaaaaa. Right.

    • pookiesmom

      Ooh, I really don’t like this, though I’m not sure exactly why. HATE the shoes, and I’m not digging that shirt/skirt combo, either. A skirt that loose and flowy needs a more fitted top, as others have pointed out. Or a shirt that loose needs a more fitted skirt, depending on how you look at it. While the colors of the pieces mesh, the styles are way off. 

    • oatmealpie

      She’s going to Whole Foods. WHERE ARE HER REUSABLE TOTE BAGS? Girl gonna get some eco-hippie evil eye in there.

      • filmcricket

         Her assistant is carrying them, three feet behind her.

    • Beardslee

      I for one would love it if more people wore something as casual and pulled together as a skirt and shirt when they are running errands.  I don’t think what she’s wearing is any harder to wear or pull on than a t shirt and a pair of shorts and it’s a lot easier on the eye. I don’t get the clutch and I don’t love the shoes but I am about to wear my version of this to the grocery store.

      • MilaXX

         I’m more likely to wear an outfit like this than jeans. The only difference beside my not being a celeb is I would have worn either a cute wedge or a ballet flat.

    • MilaXX

      Granny shoes, but otherwise a cute look. Kinda iffy on the bag.

    • charlotte

      Hermione Granger must have taught her that spell that gives small bags endless capacity. Just imagine her pulling a whole pack of recycled toilet paper plus some additional artichokes out of that clutch!

    • I do not agree that the shirt goes with the skirt.  She needs Mondo’s help if she’s going to mix prints.

    • MK03

      Guh. Mixing stripes with an abstract swirl is making my OCD twitch.

    • I have seen people as dressed up/cute as that at the grocery store here in Pittsburgh.  It’s not terribly common, but it’s not so rare that I think it’s strange.  Although she dosen’t seem to have a basket or a cart or anything, which is a little weird.

    • formerlyAnon

      Like the skirt a lot. Yes, the top “goes” but it’s not that flattering – she looks thicker through  the waist than I bet she is.

    • Fug shoes.  I always get fancy for my trips to Whole Paycheck, er, I mean Whole Foods.

    • nannypoo

      I am not a fan of anything here, especially those hideous granny sandals.

    • Zippypie

      If the shirt was fitted and only had the narrow stripe, then I’d say nice pattern mixing, but this looks silly together.  That’s a jeans shirt – boxy, boyish, would look great with skinnies – and those shoes are just a tragedy with the flippy skirt.  And who on god’s green earth carries a clutch to Whole Foods?  Get real, chica.  Photo op central.

      • MilaXX

         I’ve seen the clutch to WF comment a few times. I don’t get the big deal. I think she needs a more causal clutch, perhaps in a color like red or orange, but otherwise what’s wrong with it?

        • Zippypie

          You have to either put the clutch down or tuck it uncomfortably under your arm to shop, so it’s impractical for a supermarket.  I don’t know about you, but when I pick up my fruit and veggies and put it in a bag, I need two hands.  Same with pushing the cart and taking something off of a shelf.  Unloading my cart or basket at the checkout – two hands.  Just seems silly, but I’m definitely not a Hollywood starlet.  Maybe she has a personal shopper!

          • MilaXX

             I must have the arm tuck perfected then because it doesn’t bother me one bit. I can even navigate the loose bins. I have a few clutches including a Burberry I got for a steal on clearance at Nordstrom’s Rack. Then again I also don’t mind carrying a bag in my elbow either.

          • Magatha

            I use those little baskets all the time.  You just put the clutch in the basket and try not to let the kale drip on it. (The basket is supposed to keep me from buying a lot, but you can fit so darn much in those things, then they get heavy and the weight totally messes with the lines of whatever ensemble I’ve chosen to shop in. Tiresome.)

            I think everything is great about this outfit, very shopping appropriate, except the shoes are clunky. I don’t shop much at Whole Foods – I’m a Trader Joe/local market/farmers market person. But I’ve heard Whole Fooders can get aggressive, so maybe these are her combat sandals.

    • nancymae

      This calls for a belt. Stat. And new shoes.

    • Anathema_Device

      Love the pattern mixing. Not a fan of the shoes. Something lighter and more summer-y would have been good.

      I am baffled by the idea of grocery shopping with a clutch.

      The walking, looking over the shoulder shot made me laugh out loud. It looks so staged.

    • alyce1213

      I see a television show in your future.  But if the names Bunim or Murray come up, run T-Lo! Run like Katie and Suri.

    • Judih1

      Dressing up in heels and a clutch to go grocery shopping? I hope she is on the way to a party and just popped into the store to get some wine or pie to take to the hostess.

    • Qitkat

      I was in the Pasadena Whole Foods on Monday and I think a lot of us missed the memo.

    • Rebecca Jay

      Nope. It’s all ugly.  

      The only thing I don’t hate is her banged up legs and the fact that she has color on her toes.

    • RzYoung

      Ew I couldn’t disagree more, I hate the pairing of the top and skirt, it’s so frumpy and the shoes need to be driven out to the desert and buried in a shallow grave

    • aimee_parrott

      Those shoes are horrific, but I really love the rest of it.  However, I do agree with those who pointed out the UTTER ABSURDITY of grocery shopping with a clutch. 

    • librarygrrl64

      HATE the shoes, love everything else.

    • holdmewhileimnaked

      half the female population at whole foods in los angeles dresses something like that. it’s a destination.

    • kikisayshi

      I really like the individual pieces here but not sure they go together all that well. It’s hurting my eyes a bit with all the tiny stripes and swirls.

    • Candigirl1968

      Loving that her outfit is not ten million dollars.  That is the classic, “I’m running errands and then meeting girlfriends for lunch” look.

    • I think this is really ugly. Am I missing something?
