Guess the Blogger Pose: Foreign Territory

Leandra Medine | April 11, 2011

Saturday I posted a sneak peek to a Guess the Blogger pose installment that would run this week. This week turned into today and now, we travel across the pond. So many of you suggested Karla of Karla’s Closet in the comments because of the juxtaposition of the photo and while emulating her immaculate style would have guaranteed copious amounts of fun, I’ve already done it, that’s how the aforementioned is guaranteed, you see. It was back in August to be exact. Peep it here, especially because it involves a snorkel and mainland. Today though, we do something a little different.

socks: Hue, shoes: Christian Louboutin …Like wear red shoes with bright socks.
 And rest our wildly over-sized vintage Pucci frames atop equally over-sized motoclutches.
sweater: Rebecca Taylor, blouse: D&G;, pants: Proenza Schouler x J Brand, bag: Reece Hudson …We let our FUPAS get the best of us in order to wear super duper high waist jeans that are paint splashed.
Woah now! Betcha didn’t see this one coming, eh? Eh?
We top our knots headache inducing high and in turn look like aliens. It is fantastic. We are so blogger chic. Are you a man? Do your eyes burn? Is my fupa inducing discomfort onto your fupa?
While this game of guess who has been boatloads of fun, it’s time to answer the age old question: who am I emulating? And would I actually go outside looking like this?
And the answer is…
Drumroll please…
Shanti Kantalanki…
One time me and my best friend convinced our other best friend that “Shanti Kantalanki” meant befriend your neighbor in Native American lingo.
She believed us. 
Shanti Kantalanki…
And the blogger is…
Holy moly me oh my you’re the apple of my eye. 
Top knots. 
Rip tides.
I’m listening to Vampire Weekend…
Ok, fine…
Here’s the answer…
It is…
Just kidding…
Still listening to Vampire Weekend.
Here she is! The answer was Denni Elias of Chic Muse. 
I’ve wanted to emulate her for a while now. I’ve been reading her blog for a long time. She’s adorable and while this photo suggests otherwise, she regularly stands for everything man repelling does not while still doing her part to remain fashion forward and chic. This is of course, wildly intriguing to the likes of my turban clad self. She also hangs out in Versailles on the regular which makes her an immediate winner in the lookbook of my international life.
Speaking of winners now, it must be answered…

  • Helena

    Hahahah! LOVE THIS!

  • Caroline

    the second you showed the glasses, I thought: "Hmm, that looks a lot like Dennis (to me) iconic look from Paris fw but my english isn't perfect so I didn't really get the whole Shanti Kantalanki thing XD
    But then when I saw the photo of Denni (who I btw. love and respect for her kindness and amazing style) I smiled and thought to myself: "Yaerh, Caroline you were right again" ;D
    But I'm sad to say it, but in my opinion Denni wheres it best, and no one will ever be able to beat her in this outfit. This is to me, her iconic look and the outfit that her artistic readers prefer drawing. So I'm sorry, but you have won so many times, loosing one time don't kill all the other victories<3

    xxCaroline huge Denni and man repeller lover<3

  • Aerial
