    Wow beautiful proportions! I wouldn’t wear an outfit like that, but she looks tall and slendar, it suits her.

    Love it! Very nice-she has the height to pull off the cute high waisted skirt:)

    she looks nice, but a little too formal for the summer–too stuffy.

    i love love love the blackness of black in suede shoes. wonderful, more high waists – i can’t get enough! gorgeous pairing of the crumpled men’s shirt (with femme details like the sleeve cuff) with that skirt. and the faded look to the shirt. the whole thing, A+

    Nicely done. Her hair echoes the shape of the skirt. It also reminds me that I need to get some more cool scarves. Love the little pompoms

    I expect[ed] there to be some comments about her turned in toe, as there was for some earlier posts [was it Black Velver, London?]. I wanted to make a remark then but now’s another chance. I myself happen to be from a family whose “toe-in” naturally – even the men (think OJ Simpson). Even more so when – as in this case – the skirt is short. That is, do we see it in the longer skirts?

    If I am not mistaken, women might to stand this way naturally as maybe a subconscious way to protect the er, uh, merchandise? Do this experiment: stand both with the feet out and with them in, and see if which doesn’t make the Delta of Venus recede slightly. Sort of how women open their mouth when applying mascara; it flattens the otherwise in-the-way cheek. I just think there’s a subtle psychological component here (as there is an all fashion), a protective one regarding what does and doesn’t want to be the center of attention, to neutralize the sexuality of an above-the-knee skirt.

    Wow I hope that makes sense. Just a late defense of us toer-inner gals. We are not necessarily just trying to be “cutesy”. Of course, that also happens to be the way one stands when one has a guitar slung around one’s neck too, but guess that’s another story.

    Furthermore: damn you Sart! I should be vacuuming right now! And I think it’s cute but again, some Lycra in the shirt would improve.

    This outfit and woman are visually perplexing. I’m drawn into the whole thing for unknown reasons!

    Confused envy?

    The high waisted skirt doesn’t look tacky on her! I wish I could make that happen to me.

    Love the little flip at the hem. The little blousy cuffs on the mannish shirt.

    Is the skirt navy? The shirt hinting of lavender?

    The details.

    Oh the perfect, beautiful black suede shoes. Give them to me now…in a size 5 (or 37 in european size) or at least tell me where they are from.

    I want to wear clothes like this EVERYDAY. She’s an inspiration.

    I don’t see how this outfit is flattering. Too much fabric gathered around the waist, and the skirt ends at the unfortunate line on the leg — the former makes her torso look heavier than it probably is, and the latter makes her her legs look shorter… High-waisted skirts are calling for tight, tailored tops, neatly tucked in, methinks.

    What is this twee business with females standing knees turned in and either one or both feet also turned in? Its a stance that looks like a four year old who needs to potty.
    I’ve been seeing this pose more and more both in pictures and in person–its murder on the hips and ruins the leg line so..why?

    I love the shirt, but I don’t think this particular silouette (sp?) flatters this woman’s figure. Or maybe the skirt needs a sleeker top. Funkier shoes would set things off a bit better. Great hair!

    The trick with the blouse is to not have it puff at the sides. The blouse should have a little fullness, though, and possibly a little detail on the sleeves. With a tighter high-waisted skirt that creates a beautiful hourglass figure it’s generally better to avoid a tight top like a camisole – head to toe tightness is hard to wear – somewhere creases or bulges will be visible. This is a rather full skirt, definitely adds bulk. You can wear a look like this and be short. I’m 5’2” and a lot of petite women are short-waisted. This look can make legs look really long.
