    What a fresh looking young lady. I can manage the dress on HER; otherwise no,no. The pink socks and the shoes don´t appeal to me. Wondering how it all looks like when she puts the trench on. I wouldn´t like to see more like her on the streets.

    i agree about the mac… or trench – which ever it is! i was immediately curious about how it would look over the dress. collar detail provides some lovely texture.

    I think she ruins it with the socks and shoes. You could make them work with something else, but they just look wrong here. It’s a great dress, though.

    My favorite are the polka dots peeking out underneath the dress and I think the shoes and socks distract from that subtlety

    She’s adorable! I’m not quite feeling the socks though. Maybe if she utilized the socks in a diff. outfit, then they would look good, but not so much here.

    Love it! Wish I could pull something like this off. Alas… I can’t handle the sight of things hanging off of me or flounce in general, even though, on a personal note, I’d love to go through life in a painter’s smock (or is that a lunatic asylum dressing gown??!)

    I especially love the socks and shoes and her irreverent layering.

    Great overcast shot and colour values too. Your photoging just gets better and better.

    Nice to catch up, as you can see I’m back from the deadzone…

    I have to agree with Katherine, Han and Stella. The pink socks are not working. Though the deep blue of the ruffled smock (coat? cape?) looks terrific on her, complimenting her very fresh complexion. Lovely.

    Those socks/shoes transform her dress from its obvious potential – quiet elegance – into another – pop-reference whimsy.

    In this sense, although those socks/shoes are loud individual pieces, the way she wears them is as subtle as can be!

    Interesting how the first thing i noticed was the green pencil against the yellow pad.

    I love the pink striped collar on the trench…wonder if it’s a part of the coat or yet another layer.

    Not sure how i feel about the pink socks, leaning towards a no. Her cheeks are adorable though!

    The pink socks don’t bother me as much as the polka dots. though it is nice to see something peeking out of the dress. I just don’t care for polka dots.

    I am not sure about the trench. It might be interesting, but the shape would completely change.

    Why didn’t you take two pics of her so we could see ;)

    This is fun. and I love the rest of the textures around her.

    The length is terrible! If she didn’t have the polka dot skirt/dress belo with the socks up so high, it might have been slightly better. I think that combo does far worse for her near non-existent legs than the ginger art student/makeover girl’s boots.

    I think the bright blue shoes and the socks play upto the Japanese pop-culture stereotype and as she is asian, she can get away with it whilst most of us couldn’t. However, when looking at the outfit on the whole, she cannot.

    I love the neck and her face, which the demure navy highlights well.

    i love the elegance of the look paired with the crazy brightness of the socks…for me, it works.

    and anon. 8:45pm…i don’t think she’s able to get away with it only because she’s asian, since it also is reminiscent of a more punk look as well (punk being more of a style that’s associated with ‘caucasians’ – which i assume is who you meant by ‘most of us’)

    This is great, i love the striking pink, though I thought they were socks and on enlargement discovered they were fishnets :( great disappointment. but does the sudden colour not diminish the illusion of length?

    The layered ruffles at the neck in a just-so-slightly darker shade of blue is really intriguing.
