Guess the Blogger Pose: Top that Knot

Leandra Medine | January 26, 2011

In light of the events of yesterday (shameless plug #1: Vote for me as Most Original Blog of 2011 here) I thought today would be an opportune time to unveil the newest in the Guess the Blogger Pose series. And eventhough I call it “Guess the Blogger Pose,” I think what I mean is Guess the Blogger Style because you know, after you’ve guessed Rumi Neely’s signature sprawling pose and Karla’s try at snorkeling with sex appeal, how many innovative poses are actually out there?

Today, I’ll start with some nifty and thrifty detail shots a la Naomi Shon, per usual.

blouse: M Missoni, sweater: Rebecca Taylor, trousers: Opening Ceremony, socks: Target, shoes: Steven, purse: Chanel

If you can guess the blogger this early on, I will reward you with copious amounts of printed socks.

To offer a hint though, I’ll tell you that socks and sandals are among her staple style points. I feel like I am giving Chinese restaurants a run for their fortune cookies in the above photo. Not sure why, but just go with it, wouldja.

It should also be noted that even though I have taken a cue from myself and acted as a sartorial bartender in mixing the punchy printed blouse with striped socks, the outfit still threads together rather organically. Yes, that’s right, this is shit is organic. Available for purchase at Whole Foods for a limited time only.

And finally, here’s a photo by Chuck Grant of the entire look. As you can see…my hair is in a topknot.
Do you know who I’m emulating yet?

How about now?

And now?

Cats pajamas…

I love top knots…(hint! This too, is a hint.) 

Did you vote for me yet?

How ’bout now?

Are you ready for the answer?

You sure?



Too bad!

In an effort to do things a little differently and force you to keep your thinking capsturbans on, I’m literally going to make you guess. And if you guess correctly, you will win my glittery heart and maybe a few pairs of printed socks!

Keep checking back today for the revelation of the answer. Unless you don’t care, in which case…I got nothing.

    For a second, I thought those flowers behind you were attached to your outfit. I was thinking "Wow, Leandra has really out done herself with that flower appendage". : )

    My guess is Susie Bubble as well.

    It's not Susie Bubble! It's SEA OF SHOES, obvi. That first body shot gives it away in a (man-less) hearbeat!

  • kaye i.

    Hrrm…. Photos 1 and 2 are very Sea, but then photo 4 is very Susie B! I'm going for Janey Jane Jane… yeah Jane of Sea.

    I Love the color story of this outfit.

  • Eugenia Woods

    Jane, Sea of Shoes?

  • Ceci Chapela

    Susie Bubble all the way, the topknot is her signature, and even if Jane occasionally wears socks with her fabulous shoes, the combinations and prints are very Susie.

    vote vote vote!

  • Breen

    I'm going with Late Afternoon, the expression on your face in the last picture convinced me of it…probs wrong but I ventured a guess

  • Ella Saddington

    Chic muse….has to be.

  • Jamie

    I vote Denni Elias aka Chicmuse 🙂

  • Bella

    Oh, it's definitely the beloved Susie of Style Bubble!

  • Anonymous

    I'm guessing sea of shoes all the way, from the old socks and sandals…

  • Samantha

    my first instinct after seeing the third picture was the glamourai. but after more consideration, i think you resemble sea of shoes.

  • Francesca C

    very nice look!!!!!!

  • Man Repeller

    Jane's more an Alaia kinda gal. <3

  • Lauren Helen

    Voted for you yesterday!

  • Ophelia Olive

  • Anonymous

    I can see why people would think Jane with the shoe photo and that first detail shot but she doesn't really wear those types of shoes or socks with them really or even trousers. This is susie all the way

  • Anonymous

    haha voted for you!! its chicmuse no? 🙂

  • ediot

    that first photo is just amazing. i LOVE it

  • Carnivorous Seaweed

    The wonderful Susie Bubble?

  • misses fancypants…

    Pah. Went to vote for you (which by the way was a terribly choice difficult as susie started my whole blogloving experience- it was like choosing between miu miu and marni- both a little cuckoo in aesthetic, individual TO A TEE and crazy-lovable)….BUT the site insists I vote for every category. Haven't even heard of some of those blogs in the other categories before. Oy humbug. What to do?

  • Kristina

    Surely you are miss Susie Lau of Style Bubble! (yes I realize I am entering the guessing game a *bit* late, but I digress).

  • SEO services

    Much as I want to I don't think I can get into the socks and sandals thing…and my feet are always cold! Maybe I'll just try it one day anyway…just once at least.
