#1375 Look like Bambi Northwood-Blyth for $149

Photo: Mark Hunter for NO Magazine

Bambi Northwood-Blyth is on blog-fire right now. I can't remember a day in the last six months when I didn't see her staring out the computer screen from under those big dark eyebrows. NO Magazine booked her for their tenth issue, Wunderkinds, shot by Mark Hunter (The Cobrasnake), styled by Zara Mirkin. This shot was an outtake. I love it. I love her facial expression, I love her nose ring, I love her hair and I especially love that Karen Walker sweater with the sleeves rolled up. Like I said, grey crew neck sweaters are having a moment. Which brings me to the point of this post: that Karen Walker crewneck will be in store next week, for $149. Back in the old days when I used to buy Karen Walker Menswear up large (and by large I mean purchasing just about every sweatshirt and tee shirt in every colourway), I used to pay over $100 just for the tee shirts. You were lucky to get a sweatshirt or hoodie for less than $250. Go the recession!

I LIKE YOU!

She is sooo cute. Love models with brows. This shoot in NO is cool too. I love this issue.
Is she Australian?

I think she's actually wearing the t-shirt version with a white tee underneath - and it retails for $85!
no way could the sweatshirt roll up that high and that neatly.
