Breezy cropped jacket and cute shoes!

this ensemble is beautiful. i love the vibrant colour and she looks happy and confident- bravo!!!!

I love the continuity of this outfit. This woman knows how to balance out the multi-colored pattern on her dress with the right-colored cropped jacket and the gorgeous red heels… Just enough red in the strappy shoes to keep the look light. She knows how to make the most of her petite frame. Great!

…and Chanel-ish bag.:-)

No to the coat, yes to the rest.

the dress looks great, but that bag throws it off.
June 1, 2007 at 10:22 am
perfect accessories – not too predictable, but totally classy
June 1, 2007 at 10:46 am
Wuowwwwww, I love that dress!
June 1, 2007 at 10:48 am
Ah-she has the real bag.I don´t dig her shoes though-too light and high for her age.
I have been loving your summer inspired post as of late…but, this simply does not work. I love to mix it up. This is just trying too hard. Pretty smile.

is that a forever 21 knockoff? she looks great, especially with the aviators.
June 1, 2007 at 11:04 am
She looks very chic. I like the Missoni(?) skirt.
June 1, 2007 at 11:10 am
All the pieces work so well together, and I love that her bag isn’t the size of a small car.
June 1, 2007 at 11:16 am
Does “Missoni-ish” mean she’s wearing a knock-off? It would be surprising with the Chanel quilted bag. Anyway, nice combination with the cropped jacket and colorful elegant sandals.
June 1, 2007 at 11:25 am
she looks nice
June 1, 2007 at 11:51 am
Great look! The dress is beautiful, the jacket is so cute, the shoes are great and the bag too!
June 1, 2007 at 12:17 pm
why is it missoni-ish – it is most probably missoni – i don’t like that comment – the girl is rocking a chanel bag – duh? if you can afford chanel you can afford missoni – did you ask her???

i like the combination of colors going on here. the brightness of the dress with the neutral jacket and the metallic bag– it all works! her hair looks great too.
June 1, 2007 at 12:42 pm
I wish that she would have popped a warm colored bag with the ensemble. The gray is throwing the summery vibe of the outfit off.
June 1, 2007 at 12:44 pm
Fresh and pretty and not in any particular “category” of fashion. NOT trying too hard. Just easily summery and comfortably wonderful. Nothing jarring about this. It’s lovely.
June 1, 2007 at 1:15 pm
is the bag chanel-ish as well? either way she looks gorgeous.
I don’t like the Chanel bag with the Missoni dress (skirt). Choosing two such obvious designer elements sounds like a fashion victim screaming to me. Too much of “them” , too little of her. The little jacket just can’t overcome the ” labels on the outside effect for me.”
June 1, 2007 at 1:27 pm
A put-together look and so nice to see more legs!
June 1, 2007 at 2:02 pm
fantastic print! summer has arrived!
June 1, 2007 at 2:11 pm
She’s pulled it all together so nicely. I think the Chanel bag is an unexpected touch but it works here.

What a great jacket.
June 1, 2007 at 4:20 pm
June 1, 2007 at 4:28 pm
ahhh i have that dress! it IS forever 21
June 1, 2007 at 4:55 pm
She looks hot.I bet you’re always fighting with your wife because of the pictures with beautiful women like this one.
June 1, 2007 at 5:24 pm
she looks goood… a real standout

I’m a big fan of Missoni prints, and her outfit is perfect. Adorable jacket, cute shoes, and the print’s not wearing her.
June 1, 2007 at 8:02 pm
I’m actually kind of glad that she didn’t choose to dress this up. She looks fine just so.
June 1, 2007 at 9:52 pm
She’s the kind of woman we love to hate! Chic, fabulous and obviously has money (sigh)! Someone please tell me she isn’t as sweet as her smile! LOL!
April 25, 2014 at 4:44 pm
If I was she, I’d be glad
June 2, 2007 at 12:34 am
Really, Sart? Why? I am at a loss with this one.
Would you kindly elaborate? I find your commentary enlightening. Really.

She looks like Susan Lucci’s twin sister.
Love the Missoni-ish dress and matching heels.
June 2, 2007 at 2:51 am
Well, gee, I think she looks fabulous!
June 2, 2007 at 5:12 am
I love it when colorful pieces are paired with neutral ones. It creates a lovely balance.
June 2, 2007 at 10:30 am
eeeh yes not really loving this one, nothing special about it…
June 2, 2007 at 1:16 pm
I think she looks lovely – I would totally wear this! Great colors for her coloring. I’m surprised by all the comments that indicate a disdain toward mixing hi-lo (ie – if her dress is Forever 21, her bag must be fake, etc). It may be that shopping at Forever 21 for her dress is how she affords her classic Chanel bag!

Have you ever heard of mixing high-end and low-end? People do it all the time. I think the dress is f21 and the bag is probably real.
June 2, 2007 at 6:19 pm
Designer labels or not and I don’t really care if the bag and dress are real, fake, a hi-lo mixing or not, I would have liked to see her wear them together, or separately, in a more creative, personalized way. Here it looks very standard off-the-rack (or -shelf) label-y. Cute look but as they sometimes say, youth is wasted on the young.
June 2, 2007 at 7:56 pm
I can’t believe this outfit is so controverisal, it’s really a simple, but great look. I like that you can’t tell if the skirt is a knock-off or not, because it doesn’t really matter either way.
June 3, 2007 at 1:08 am
i have that dress too. i wear cheapy f21 dresses all the time with designer shoes and bags. who cares at least you can pull it off. just because you wear one designer item doesn’t mean you have to designer from head to toe.
vintage clothes from thift stores cost the same or less than f21.. what’s the difference right?
June 3, 2007 at 6:23 pm
I agree with Diva, the Chanel bag (however lovely) seems wrong for the warm colors of the dress, shoe, jacket, and the curl of her hair picking up the sunshine. The black bag is just too harsh for the rest. Otherwise perfect summer outfit.
June 3, 2007 at 9:54 pm
if a woman has the legs for high heels (and she does!) and can stand the pain, for god sakes then flaunt them! High heels are timeless.

I love, love, love this outfit, especially with her hair and sunglasses and bag. Perfect.
June 4, 2007 at 9:43 am
I love her, the woman of my dreams.

I love love love this look. I love it when people incorportate African paterns in their clothes.
BellaNaija.blogspot.com has had a few posts of African desingers who use African fabric to make western style clothes. I wish I could get my hands on some of those designs.
June 12, 2007 at 3:32 pm
cute outfit, but she could’ve done w/out the chanel-ish bag.
June 17, 2007 at 5:22 am
this is a gorgeous outfit! i love it!
June 18, 2007 at 9:08 am
Very cute, but not chiq. Average cute. :-)))
January 27, 2008 at 8:09 pm
Nice outfit. Dress too short for the height of the heals and the length of the jacket. Two inches longer would be much more chic.

y muy natural!!
