    Nice. The season's seen a lot of layers, large proportions on small frames and mixing of masculine/femme – it's nice to see something that fits and is clearly femme without it being thigh exposing dress or skirt.

    Love it! I have the same haircut – she looks so chic without looking like she's trying terribly hard. Love the pearls with that whimsical sweater. And red lipstick – perfection.

    How sweet! It reminds me of the mid 80's Family-Ties era look. I think I wore every version of this sweater in fifth grade.

    The vibrant saturated red lipstick echoes nicely against the red hue in the background. What makes this photo so nice is the dramatic red lipstick and the cavalier expression this woman wears embodying a very retro aura which is reiterated with the pearls and girlish wool sweater.

    LOVE the red lipstick!! and then I notice the other feminine, bombshell-esque details – hair, pearls, pretty purse. but I like all this with the jeans. I think she's very successful with a modern look with vintage references.
    This is such a contrast to design student #1 whose look was nice, but not imaginative.

    Scott, I don't know if it's the light or the girl's face or the setting on your camera (it looks like film film) or what, but this photo is a real leap forward for you. Or, at least, a leap in a different direction.

    It reminds me of Cindy Sherman.

    Fantastic photo.

    Normally, I don't like sweaters with animals or santas or elves or whatever on them, but here, I am loving the look. Maybe it's the red lipstick, hairstyle and necklace. Or maybe it's your photgraph and the way you captured the light on her face. Not sure. But I in all cases, I do like this photo quite a bit.

    It cracks me up that someone can wear a jumper with sheep on it, and have a yellow bag, and still appear stylish. Just goes to show!

    Gorgeous young lady. Killer red lipstick. I would guess she's of Iranian descent. The clothes are unimportant in this clothes.

    Beautiful. This isn't to do with high end designer labels…this is true style. Being elegant and timeless in jeans and a sweater. This girl has got IT!

    Quirky and classic fashion notes juxtaposed alongside a hair and beauty look that is pure Hollywood glamour. She does/will stand out in a crowd. Great style of fun and perfect grooming. One of my fave recent pics!

    Love to Black sheep on the sweater. She definitely pulls this off well, looking stylish rather than too childlike.
