This column gets more absurd every week...

Pepe 7 years, 10 months ago

Agreed. This column should have been put out to pasture a long time ago. Either that or rename the column to make it more accurate, i.e.,instead of "style scout", call it "This week's poorly dressed, mismatched, hipster wannabe".

Sorry to Ms. Edwards, but I've got to agree. 90% of these folks are hipster fashionistas.

Pepe, I highly doubt you have a better sense of fashion.. What is your definition of the right "hipster"?

Julie Craig 7 years, 10 months ago

It's probably really hard to find people willing to have their pictures taken and then get ripped by anonymous posters on their bad sense of style.

Kudo's to these folks for having self confidence!
