    Ah! The value of investment pieces! I love how everything she is wearing she will be able to wear stylishly for a long time. Everyone is trying to be green while at the same time consuming fast fashion. Any ideas of how much energy is used to create a simple tshirt? This outfit is chic, simple, and classic.

    Lovely. Just the type of crisp, clean, buttondown look I always lust after yet cannot attain because I'm entirely too zaftig/milchmaidy to pull it off.

    Very chic…and yet, on her or anybody else I can't stand the natural color showing on the roots, especially when the hair is dyed to such an extremely unnatural color. Hair coloring should be one's own, only a little better.
    Maybe it's her way of expressing a wild side, by going for a bright red mane.

    The more I scrutinize the photo, the less I like the bag. That is pretty. However, it is out of scale to the woman carrying it both in size (if a handbag) and because of its size, it is out of scale in color, too. I'm not writing about bag matching shoes. The bag should be an accessory to the woman and never the main focus. When an accessory is the focus, it detracts from the woman, and the woman is primary.

    The bag could possibly be way too obvious! In fact, the composition of the photograph is a little obvious too: contrasting the buzzing background with the utter silence of the woman and her outfit, and then bang! Patent red leather Vuitton. It's a little unimaginative, but damn does it look striking.

    it's NOT all about the bag. It does not matter WHO made the bag. It is HOW the PERSONALITY is projecting. Sometimes it is a bag, sometimes it is shoes, hats or something else. People , there is MORE to fashion then "the bag is GOURGE!". Fashion is expression, not a NAME, a tag or a price. THAT is a true art.

    She looks fantastic. So poised and put together, but in a classic unforced way. I am glad now that I purchased an enormous "Known Brand" rich black leather bag for the Fall/Winter season. It cost way too much, but the longer I carry it, the better I like it and don't see how I ever got along carrying anything smaller. So the saying goes~ You get what you pay for. Besides, when you have a bag this large you can fit anything into it. I feel kind of eccentric when I stuff my pilates clothing into the bag so I can work out later when I'm on the go and know I won't make it back home to change before class. I kind of like this feeling, nobody knows but me. Hah!

    Not fair. This lady has everything in propotion. Colours schemes, gloss when needed, great shape, boldness and the perfect face that invites curiousity…as if to say she knows a lot mopre than we do in an unsnobby way.

    With the roots showing through the dyed ginger hair. I look at this as punk girl who knows how to tread both worlds.. and to be chic in every world. Pure class.

    I adore the triangle of red – the bag and the two stop lights – what a photograph. Ok, and I am having a covetous fit over the bag itself. sign.

    Anyone who needs such a tasteless bag (as expensive as e.g. an african childs complete higher education) for proving her style is a rather poor human being.

    the glazed handbag with glazed shoes.

    the three reds- bag, dyed orange hair, and the traffic light.

    and those cute dangly earrings.

    This girl is really cute, I have to say, even thoug I'm a girl myself.
