    she lost me with the long length of the underneath cardigan. the rest–from the dress to vest to the tights to the shoes–is perfection!

    Not just THAT dress but look at THAT bolero with THOSE stockings paired with THOSE shoes! Colour is such a fickle thing so I love how your blog shows so many inspirational photos of how you can range an outfits colour palette.

    Brilliant! The separation of the 2texture-rich elements (fur shawl and tweed-y dress) by the cardigan is simply genius. I also love the color of the tights and the way it blends with the shoes. Great outfit. I also like the she is not wearing a bag that fights for the spotlight. Jorge from WPB

    absolutely stunning
    the texture of the dress looks so vibrant and thick yet seems to have a soft feel to it

    It’s the whole look. Pretty in pink (and I usually don’t like too much pink), feminine, long legs and a beautiful face.

    Perfect! Everything, from her beautiful heart-shaped face to those cool shoes works together so well i can even overlook the cellphone/backberry/lifesupport. i love it too when a lady with long hair takes the trouble to style it into an elegant updo – so chic and sophisticated – a fabulous accessory that if you can do it yourself costs nothing.

    Are the people in Europe really wearing this much fur, or are you just a fur-aholic? I hope it’s fake…
    Pretty dress, BTW.

    So smart; feminine and colorful, professional and classic. The texture is to die for; inspirational. I’ve been searching for tights this color; this post keeps me on the hunt! It also is making me click purchase on a textured full skirt fitted bodice dress I’ve had in my shopping cart online for weeks…

    I love how this is spring–or fall–layering at its best. We’re moving away from the winter super darks and into more playful shades, but we still need to keep warm.

    I was just pining after the fashions in “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” which was on French TV last night. This outfit would have fit right in (and the movie is set in Italy–I guess great style is eternal). The only thing I am not crazy about is the sweater. Maybe if it were shorter? Or maybe not at all? Somehow cardigan sweaters still remind me of Mr. Rogers, even when they are pink and are on women as lovely as fresh roses.

    Purple and pink and burgundy and beige, love it, love it, love it! It’s girly but I don’t find it too sweet at all. The fuzzy vest adds something textural and unexpected if you look from the feet and then move up.

    terrific! i live in the bay area where it’s often chilly, cool or cold and i go round with the best way to layer decidedly feminine pieces without simply wearing a tea length coat.

    i like it, it’s fun.

    What a wonder this is! Sometimes I see a photo here that makes me really light up inside and this is certainly one of them. The initial thing that drew me in was the contrasting textures, not only of the fabrics and the fur, but also the concrete and the metal bars against each other. Secondly, the colors are perfectly balanced against each other so as to highlight each element in the composition while favoring no one in particular. Finally, the insouciance of the woman herself is the essential element that completes the picture. Bravo!

    I love the retro style and full skirt of the dress. The purple tights & shoes make it even more interesting. She'd better have left off that shaggy fur thing, though. It's awful.

    For some reason, I don’t have guts to wear a belt outside of my cardigan, it’s just a little too studied and obvious a fashion move, much like the male fedora thing going around. I must say though, she wears it well. I wish I could get a closer look at those shoes.

    Love the color combo and mix of pattern and texture; the contrast gives the outfit an element of inventiveness and surprise. The belt is another creative modification that gives her more ownership of the look.
