    EXcellent shopping outfit. Comfortable yet funky. I love that super-long hoodie with the little leather vest. The gold/silver boot/bag mix is cool too. She’s gorgeous.

    The shiny vest and the metallic booties are great counterpoints to the rest of the outfit. Her sleek hair adds to the mix.

    I like the shoes…Couldn’t pull them off myself, but still like the look!

    I gotta add more shine to my wardrobe. One gold or silver piece can add so much to a simple ensemble!

    I like the short dress with the tights.

    Don’t know what I think about bronze AND silver. I like metallics as an accent, but this may be more variety than I’d do.

    The good thing is that she hasn’t overdone the outfit. If you’re going to go multi-accent then the dark outfit is the right.

    The boots and the bag are a nice surprise for this type of outfit and a great addition.

    Her skin is flawless and even it doesn’t take away the kind of elfin look of her ensemble. I just don’t like this look because it hovers too closely to sloppy.

    This is the second time I have seen that purse on this blog. I still think it is too big, but then again, I am not one to favor hauling a big bag like that. The closest thing to a “purse” anyone will see me carry is my cousin’s diaper bag (if I am babysitting) or my camera bag.

    Even then, I always try to keep my belongings to the bare minimum (keys and small wallet for cash and cards) so I can put it into a pocket. With so many people out shopping this time of the year, I just don’t want to take chances on getting robbed.

    Puff sleeved hoodie tunic (by Rojas?) – so classically comfortable but of-the-moment. Want it.

    For some reason I think the shoes killed the whole outift. But aside from the shoes it’s a very cute look.

    Sort of a Naomi Campbell look to her. I don’t know if I like the shoes ( I certainly couldn’t carry them off), but she looks good in a specific way.

    What a presence! Always proud of my fellow Black ladies. While I’m not a fan of the boots – though she can definitely pull them off – I commend you (and her) for recognizing that you can be a fashionable lady and have a some meat on your bones. I’m real tired of girls with no shape.

    To me the boots look a little bit Star Trek but they lift the outfit out of the ordinary. she is one hot ‘don’t mess with me’ mama

    I love the way she put this together – the proportions are great – but I would have loved it even more with the bag *or* the boots. Worn together, it’s way too trendy for my taste.

    She’s better than Naomi.

    I think her bag is Helmut Lang, I THINK. I had wanted to get one myself that looked just like it but was all black.

  35. love your blog
