    I like the mix of black and brown with a shock of white. Has an 80′s vibe for me — maybe it’s the shoes, sunglasses, and Annie Hall nod.

    I do love the balenciaga bag…

    Very stylish. Great personality to carry this off; the white cuffs, green pumps and a brown bag. I guess the fact she is tall and slim, makes the whole scene look soothing to eyes.

    I am so psyched to see the brown bag/ black rest of outfit combo in this photo and Consuelita below. I predict this again in the Fall and a bit more tweed and rough boots a la Burberry. This will be the 80′s redux, not the neon/Flock of Seagulls looks that have gotten some minor attention from those seeking attention!

    I love that they’re using your shots in NY Times!! And I particularly love the article this week about men’s-style dressing for women, being the occasional cross-dresser that I am. I feel very sexy in a double breasted jacket cut close to the bod with somewhat wide lapels — Think Bowie circa 1977 – the Thin White Duke sort of thing. Or even Mic Jagger around that time.

    That shot of Anastasia Barbieri is one I’ve clipped from your blog to include in my collection of personal favorites and style inspirations. Clean, lean and mean. She’s sexy without being overt. Really a beautiful girl.

    As for the above shot, to be honest I’m not loving this particular suit. Perhaps it’s the fabric, the shininess of it that calls to mind something a girl at the make-up counter might wear. I’m sure she’s chic and French and all that stuff but I need more than that…. this ain’t doin’ it for me.

    I love it, but don’t like it at the same time, I think it’s the trousers that just don’t look as luxe as the rest of the outfit..
