    What a wonderful mix of tradition and modernity, with a sprinkle of quirkiness and a dose of intellectual melancholy, perhaps she has just stepped out of a book by Murikami, whilst listening to someone as brilliant as Nico, thank you for sharing this very inspiring image!

      That was what I was thinking too – that she seems like a character from Murakami’s book. Maybe Norwegian Wood?

    Suuuuuuper cool! Love seeing Asian chicks rockin’ Asian motifs, especially in an unusual fashion. Would be curious to know what the bottom of her outfit looks like and if it’s inspired by Chinese academic dress. Thanks so much for sharing. :)

    I love her! This is great–so often, a piece like this comes off as costume, or a gimmick or novelty, but this is simply style.

    She’s fabulous. And this image made me finally commit to the 2 quid chinoiserie blouse in the charity shop ever the road from my place. Am wearing it now and I love it.

    O M G, this girl is bold. She has the courage to wear something unusual that matches her personality, which makes it look natural. I am all into natural.

    What I love the most is that if you hadn’t specified where you took the photo, I would have never guessed that it was taken in NYC.

    Originality. It is quite a refreshing sight for sore eyes.

      Sandra you have such great style! Style that i feel like the average woman can pull of and women of difrefent shapes and sizes. I love this outfit and the floral is just the right touch! I hate my feet and it’s funny because yours are like mine but you just gave me motivation to slip my toesies back into sandals this summer! xoxo Michelle
