Love the jacket! The leggings, boots and the dress are nicely juxtaposed: modern, edgy but still reminicent of very femenine shape.
I personally have issues with handbags being carried like that: it feels so awkward. I’ve seen so many women carrying bags like that and it always feels like playing an older dame …like they are in their 50s, or they admire Victorian times. Kind of artificial and totally strict, not fun. Not for me.

lovely sky blue birkin

The dress looks too much like a curtan. It throws off the rest, which is great.

Nice! Is that an Ann Demeulemeester sweater? I kind of wish the bag was a different color, though.

The girl,jacket, purse, leggings, and boots are wonderful! What’s with the bubble wrap?
Why is she wearing drapes under her wicked jacket? Furthermore, why does she want to punch me?

WOWIE! Divine! A new way to wear a sarong, which looks suddenly fresh again and I love the throw away attitude of the sky blue Kelly!

she has the coveted ann jacket!
positively the same dame

yeah, i don’t know when that arm position became the thing — i think i first started noticing it back when the balenciaga le dix bag was the bag of the moment and you’d see gwynneth and the olsen twins carrying it like that. very-queen elizabeth-with-a-pocket-book stiff and akward. but the woman here could wearing this baby blue (bluejean?) birkin upside-down and on her head and it would still be fab.

Am not a fan of this. The bag is too much of a(n expensive) prop.

uh…no. she looks like a style victim- that skirt looks like it got stuck in the waist of her tights. and the fabric is another weather than the top and boots and the color of bag just doesn’t work for me.

Overall I quite like it, what makes it special is that bloody handbag! And I suppose she could’ve carried it in a different way, but I don’t see why, she looks perfectly fine just like that.

she’s sort of like an upside down tulip…interesting

no no no .. except the bag, hair and glasses

mariaif you need your hands free, the crook of the arm is a very natural place for the handle of a handbag to ‘sit’. Often my hands have keys, coffee, mail … or one hand has a tote bag and carrying my handbag in the other hand makes me feel like a bellhop. The elbow was made for a certain kind of bag. If you feel awkward, then maybe a shoulder strap is for you.
I think the woman in the photo looks fantastic.

Looks to me like her skirt got caught in her button or she forgot to take her curtain off this morning. Take your pick. I love the jacket though.
November 29, 2006 at 5:20 am
don’t like at all. the jacket/cardigan looks cheap, and what’s with that dress/skirt? it looks like something you would wear to the beach. The worst thing though is mixing black and baby blue like that.
November 29, 2006 at 8:30 am
all this draping pointing up is ratherly funny, I find.
November 29, 2006 at 9:14 am
Too fussy. The mix of summer and winter items does not hit it with me. Sarongs are worn in summer for a reason, unless she thinks she’s a window and must have a curtain too!
November 29, 2006 at 10:26 am
I don’t really enjoy the look of the sarong. I find it awkward but, good for her for not being boring!

i think this is lovely. i like how she has a floaty sarong, generally very summery, combined with all black to make a fun unique look for fall.
and for those who think that the bag position is awkward — for those of us with sloping shoulders (and she does seem to be one), many bags will fall of those shoulders, and they will naturally end up in your elbow.
November 29, 2006 at 2:30 pm
I’m all for creativity, but this isn’t working for me at all. I just don’t get the sarong thing – period.
November 29, 2006 at 5:49 pm
who are you people kidding. the cardigan is the best, most interesting part of the outfit! the status bag has to go… its overdone
November 29, 2006 at 6:39 pm
Hey that’s my girl S. I’ll tell her that she’s on here. Fantastic.
November 29, 2006 at 9:07 pm
That Birkin looks marvelous. IMO, you just can’t go wrong with one. It pulls together her elements, which include that filmy dress.

I love that she was bold enough to have to wrap of the dress mimic the wrap of the jacket. The Birken seems out of place though, clashes with the pallette.

whoaa….it gave me a whole new perspective on my sarongs’ collection….mira-jakarta
December 6, 2006 at 10:29 pm
I like how the cut of the hem of the jacket echoes the sarong’s shape. Awesome detail.
February 5, 2007 at 2:54 am
like the sweater but the skirt makes me wonder – is the bag real?
February 5, 2007 at 12:40 pm
She could have looked chic but instead looks “cute” wearing a shower curtain.

The diagonal makes her look short.
