Nice! Great color and love the hair. I could do without the sandals and the un-PC disposable water bottle. Everyone should be using a Nalgene bottle filled with filtered tap water.

The shoes could only be lovlier if the heels were covered.
Fantastic — this shot reminds me of the Gwendolyn Stewart photo of Anne Sexton.

*LOVE* the dress & everything else…except the shoes! They ruin it, kind of.
September 8, 2007 at 12:27 pm
she’s so well dressed it makes you want to see the inside of her home. . . it’s bound to be the chicest place in the city. . .

Love the mix of colors in the outfit. She looks absolutely beautiful, until you get to the shoes, which just don’t go. Also, a less severe hairstyle would be nice.

Hair, face, bangles, dress, pose, shoes: fabulous.

something of a peasant in town; mix of primitive and sophisticated elegancecordelia
September 8, 2007 at 2:13 pm
She looks very pretty, very European, but she also looks hot!

Love the mix of prints. Very urbane and chic. Nice. A great example of using globally inspired prints and not make it look like a costume, something for everyday.
September 8, 2007 at 2:47 pm
I don’t like the earrings (too much with the prints of the scarf and the dress) or the shoes, but otherwise “in praise of older women” was my primary thought in looking at this! :)
September 8, 2007 at 2:48 pm
Ack..In looking more closely I think I falsely accused her of wearing earrings. Still don’t like the shoes though.
September 8, 2007 at 3:35 pm
great look…it’s evident that style comes very natural to her
September 8, 2007 at 3:46 pm
I love the mix of patterns that make her salt and pepper hair look awesome.
Plus, doesn’t she look like Nia Vardalos from My Big Fat Greek Wedding?
September 8, 2007 at 4:35 pm
I really love her look. I love looking through your photos!
September 8, 2007 at 4:50 pm
I like her style, but not the shoes.Can’t help it…
September 8, 2007 at 6:19 pm
oh heavens. i think the bracelet thing is splendid. and then of course the colour of the dress and the mix of patterns. it’s a cool look.
September 8, 2007 at 7:39 pm
I love her style with her age, it’s fresh and vibrant. I like the mix of colors and prints. I might personally wear a dark brown shoe to blend it in more with the bangles and scarf, but overall she looks great!

I typically abhor white shoes, but these manage to look a little tough and perfectly cool.
I like that they’re a bit different than the typical (safe) shoe many of us would’ve chosen.
September 8, 2007 at 9:30 pm
I love the shoes and everything else she wears. She looks like someone I would want to know.
September 8, 2007 at 9:56 pm
I must defend the shoes — they’re excellent! They were the first thing I noticed, and I approve of the whole outfit.
September 9, 2007 at 12:04 am
A mature woman again.Good. The shoes are the only problematic part in this pic. Well,summer is soon gone and maybe she thinks it is the final time to wear white shoes.
September 9, 2007 at 12:08 am
i love it all, esp the shoes. anyone know where she got them?she looks gorgeous.
September 9, 2007 at 1:09 am
The green really compliments her well.
Love the white shoes.
September 9, 2007 at 5:35 am
it’s encouraging to see an older woman, i.e. not a teener or tweener or twenty year old (all lovely in their own right) who has worked out how to look great and sexy and serious and smart and fun (i.e. grown-up). designs on the high street are mostly for kids.
September 9, 2007 at 6:21 am
I love this – it looks like she went to her wardrobe and threw together this outfit with what she found. I love that the shoes are a bit “off”
September 9, 2007 at 9:38 am
perfection – it isn’t about cool clothes or spending a lot of money but rather 100% about her style.
September 9, 2007 at 11:33 am
Love the colors she mix! Great way to wear a scarve!
September 9, 2007 at 1:12 pm
This woman looks great. Many have commented on the white sandals. I might have chosen a darker color, but the crossed straps do echo the pattern in the scarf. I like that kind of detail. Overall, I love the earthy/urban mix.
September 9, 2007 at 3:03 pm
She looks very cool, very sophisticated and daring- like someone who has done something with her life. Anyimage, how do you know she isn’t refilling one bottle with tap water? Even if she didn’t, a fashion blog isn’t the place for your righteousness.
September 9, 2007 at 5:57 pm
Inspirational (if thats how its spelled)i loved the whole outfit even the shoes ..
September 9, 2007 at 8:45 pm
Not many can carry this type of look. Print on print coupled with adventurous accessories (the shoes everyone is commenting on!) I love this combi. I won’t take away anything honestly. I think she got it right. Reminds me of Tokyo, where fashionable Japanese play on texture, prints, colours & interesting mix of accessories. Be adventurous, I say!
September 9, 2007 at 9:20 pm
I adore the smart and sensible sandles (I have a pair very similar myself) and I simply love the mixing of patterns and colours ..but what I like most about this outfit are the very cool bracelets this lady is wearing up her arm.
September 10, 2007 at 3:53 am
Nothing to little, nothing to much, pure class!
September 10, 2007 at 10:27 am
I love the mad mix, very Prada w/o the mad price tag!
September 10, 2007 at 4:34 pm
Gorgeous interplay between the various prints and patterns. I’m not usually terribly impressed by modern women’s fashion choices, but how can I have any issues with this?
Oh, and the colors are excellent also.
September 10, 2007 at 5:04 pm
Wow, she looks perfect. Very individual, still referencing trends, looking smoking hot. And I adore the shoes. They really make the outfit for me — taking it just over the edge from “ethnic sympathizer” to “bohemian punk.”
September 10, 2007 at 11:10 pm
she seems to like the idea of being wrapped.
September 10, 2007 at 11:20 pm
Love the heal height.

September 13, 2007 at 8:24 am
I LOVE this look; so chic – the shoes – the whole thing! She looks French.
October 9, 2007 at 2:16 pm
FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!SHE looks great!!!!!!!!!

She looks perfect. The white shoes give the outfit edge so she doesn’t look too much like a hippy. Perfect combination. She looks wonderful with her grey hair! Anyone that is telling us what they might want to do different in her place; All I can tell you is that she is obviously more stylish then you are. Thats why there is a picture of her, and not you.

she wears indonesian printed-fabric namely batik. and also goes for her scarf.
beautiful how she put together all the element
October 30, 2012 at 3:23 am
yes, indeed..Indonesian batik
