    Love this! (And the two girls on the right for that matter) Its funny that they all have very different styles–funky, preppy, classic– and still look good together! Like a modern day Sex in the City!

    A nice palette, a nice ensemble. Accents in the purple sunglasses, the shaggy vest and the magnificent high heels.

    And confidence. Confidence is beautiful.

    She looks very cool, but the cigarette in hand kind of negates the whole look for me. NOT a fashionable accessory. Is there a reason why 98% of the women you shoot are a size 2 or less? C'mon – more imagination please. There are plenty of larger chic women oozing with fabulous style that we'd love to see!

    Love the pants, top/vest…Especially the vest! Something about the shoes does not seem right for this outfit, even though a high heel works well…

    I like that her shoes are the dressiest element of the outfit next to the vest. It's funny the only time I see people smoking anymore is on the pages of the Sartorialist. I'm not complaining–just observing.

    Wow! Interesting how the common fatigue-pants-and-army-issue-tshirt combo can be taken to a completely higher level by playing with the pleats and the proportion of the pants! Hopefully many many people will see this picture and be inspired by it. I also like the huge scarf on the right and the studded high heels, on the far right. Great shot! Jorge from WPB

    I love the mix of textures in her outfit. I would have chosen chunkier heels, but the juxtaposition of the ladylike heel with the army green and the rough top. I wish the cigarette would not look as cool as it does. The helf of the woman on the right (the one with her daughter's jeans, not the one in the shocking color) looks great despite her scary gaze.

    She's awesome (not many can pull off green pleated pants) and the ladies to her left are also quite brave for combining such vibrant colors/ patterns. Those heels are out of control (studded black and gold)!

    I get my fashion inspiration from this blog, and I've been having fun with the cargo pants/fitted shirt look all summer. Sometimes I wear them with a fitted solid-color T, as in this photo. Other times I wear them with a shortish, semi-fitted, solid-color linen shirt. People have stopped me on the street to ask where I found pants with pockets halfway down the leg; yesterday, for the first time, my adolescent daughter put on a similar outfit; and now the look is featured here on THE style blog! Now to dig into the shoe collection …

    The panama-wearing older lady in the background, with her mid-calf length pants, white socks pulled up and sensible 'running shoes' adds a nice contrast to the shot ;)

    Oh my GOD! To all the people who whinge and whinge and whinge about cigarettes in people's hands- stop being so pedantic.

    Seriously, this is a "photo" of a cigarette- it's not doing you any damage and let these people live their lives the way they want to.

    I don't see how this photo is AT ALL ruined because of an inconspicuous little stub of white in her right hand. This is a picture that first and foremost glorifies fashion.

    I don't see any problem commenting about a cigarette any more than commenting about any other accessory, for example her pants. Are we only *pedantic* if we say we *don't* like them? Are contrary opinions allowed on the comments of this blog? Because, if not, instead of "pants pedants", are we all just "pants sycophants"?

    Something about this look befuddles me. I like the outfit from the waist down–chic, feminine. From the waist up, it's …boyish? Kinda reminds me of super-hero dress-up.

    I keep looking at it, thinking, it doesn't work!

    But her way-coolness trumps my cognitive dissonance. For sure.
