    I find the contrast with the bright boots just too much; they engulf the rest of her outfit which we therefore don’t really notice.

    There’s something about the color of her boots.

    I think it’s a good mix of the colors she’s wearing.

    Love the boots with the tickets…how random that they are the same yellow.

    Are those rubber boots? If she had a little more punk attitude (hair) this outfit would feel more deliberate.

    ooh I like it! Very fun. I think the bright boots are balanced by the red bag. There are so many ways this outfit could have gone wrong but she pulled it off. Great coat too!

    Where is her yellow matching raincoat?? Those boots are way too much-they don’t work for me. A brown or black boot would have been lovely with her outfit! I think she looks comical.

    We always love those who share our sensibilities–I love the yellow boots. A European winter can always use a spot of color. I might have chosen a more classic bag color (too “ketchup and mustard” for me). But the whole look is fun and comfortable and the yellow boots make it exciting. What better for the Etro show?

    Every time I’ve tried bright colored shoes, they get dirty beyond repair the instant someone even looks at them.

    Maybe yellow rubber won’t be ruined quite as quickly… but I doubt it. Fun look based on throw-away, one-wear-only shoes.

    This is great, but I hope she never puts down that bag. The splash of bright red keeps her boots from being the sole focus of the outfit.

    I love it. Especially with the red purse.

    The only thing I’m not sure about is the bangs in the eyes. Looks crazy-making. I’d be scratching my face constantly.

    Irinia Lazareanu is inspiring a generation of semi-blinded women! But still, she is quite chic.

    It’s like she took every single speck of color from her outerwear and included it somewhere in the outfit.

    Even her hair color is in the jacket :-)

    I’ve made this same mistake of putting yellow on its own like this with black (everything else) and I also agree that the particular shade of yellow is too overpowering. The shoes become separated from the rest of the outfit. It just doesn’t photograph well imo.

    i think her boots are chic. so much better than brown or black slouchy boots we see everywhere in nyc. i like the clean lines of the boots. they pop, and actually draw me in so i look at the rest of her outfit more closely.

    i think its fine.. definitely bold but it works. I mean if she wore the yellow boots with “bright” clothes then she would probably look like a clown.

    It’s kind of like a palette when you’ve been painting a while. They bright colors were originally squirted off to the side, and the stuff you’ve mixed with them has now turned to different shades of mud.

    I like it. It looks like she dipped her feet in yellow paint.

    Sart, you just made me want to paint. Awesome!

    I love the yellow boots. They are the perfect contrast. It’s like they are saying, “I’m excited for almost spring, and you should be too!” I love the little peek of red as well.

    Also, is she wearing a blouse under her t-neck sweater, or could it be a scarf?

    Final thoughts…let’s not limit ourselves people, a touch of color is always good! She’s perfect.

    hmm. the color certainly is refreshing given the oh so grayness of the winter looks (i had to look at the spring archives to perk me up a little), but i’m not sure about the mix of textures. maybe if there was less texture going on, it would be better?

    anyway, i hope the groundhog sees no shadow and we can see some blossoming spring color.

    Cool outfit. But she should have skippet the red bag, cause with the boots it’s very ketshup and mustard..
    I like the feeling of that she just put on her bright yellow boots, and do not look desperat. If she had had a “cool” haircut , she would have a very desperate look like; “I try to look very innovative and cool”. But this is perfct. :)

    I don’t understand why some people say black and brown don’t go together. I think they look so strong together.

    About the yellow boots, maybe if they were a mustard colour, which is in right now, it wouldn’t have looked so “in your face”. However, because they are that bright yellow it’s putting people off.
