    Love those shoes!!So giry with the rest of the androgynous look of the rest of the outfit. The black turtleneck frames her face in sttark contrast to the peachy compleexion and yellow-blond hair. Lively!

    Ugh I actually cannot stand her hair! It’s extremely outdated and makes her seem much older than I’m sure she really is. It’s like if one were to paste the head of an old 80′s icon onto a chic young body.

    I do love her shoes and the maroon blazer.

    I’m sorry, but this does not appeal to me. I did the 80′s the first time around and am not keen on going back. Nonetheless, I guess for some younger people it’s novel.

    That’s not 1980s hair that’s 1900s hair – BIG difference! I am impressed with this.

    I’m not normally one for shoes but those are great

    I assume this outfit is clearly inspired in the 80s which is not particularly my favourite time for fashion and hairstyle.

    That hair is interesting though, with that touch of 100 years ago and she has a very honest and warm smile. I also like very much those shoes.

    Her pose is very nice too, but I am not a fan of the outfit. All the pieces are OK, but blue and black and wine together… The shapes don’t convince me much either and that watch…

    Perhaps if she was wearing a special vintage feminine dress that matched that hair and shoes, she could be great and ready for a spring garden party…

    By the way, I’m looking forward to know how yesterday’s party went. And Sart, you will be posting some pics for all of us that couldn’t make it there, won’t you?

    i love the blue jeans. it’s nice to see actual *blue* again, after so much dark rinse, dark tint, etc. and the contrast with the jacket is great. the hair is festive! a bit nutty but festive. who hasn’t had a mood like this? she’s expressing it, and that’s great. anyone else tired of all the cookie-cutter fake-smooth blow-outs in magazines, on the runway, on the street?

    I love it. What makes it for me is the magenta jacket. I dont see the 80′s reference so much as a cabaret feel – a happy Max Beckmann – Weimar resolved..she covers the roaring 20′s, the chanel 60′s the rocker 80′s and is the happy postmodern orchestrator of the whole look.

    Aw, people who say 80s hair are not really looking at this girl close up.

    It’s long that she’s loosely stacked on her head. She’s a modern day Gibson Girl with a killer smile. And those killer gams. And shoes.

    Love it! That’s the most creative I’ve seen skinny jeans look in a while. I’ve wished I could wear my hair that way for a long time, but its just too thin and not coarse enough…sigh

    I’m reminded of a movie called “Art School Confidential,” where a first-time painter convinces a whole art school that he is the “next big thing” because of his complete lack of knowledge of even the basic rules of artistic composition. From the flock of seagulls/ziggy stardust vibe with the hair and the dynasty earrings through the too-faded, too skinny jeans and the super-cute but out of place shoes, this woman is oblivious of every fashion “rule” that has become unspoken in the last 50 years. And I really kinda love her for that. she’s rocking a pink rubber watch and she looks good doing it. I don’t know how. . . or why this works. Maybe because the individual shapes of the pieces really flatter her. In any case kudos!

    I want those shoes! abosolutely adorable~ I like how she chose slim jeans to pair with those shoes. It makes her legs look longer.

    Can’t agree with the blazer and hair, though. Maybe just me.

    I like a man with big, natural hair, so why not a woman?

    What I do not like is the bright blue and faded wash of the jeans — it drags the trendy skinny jean back to 2002.
