    Love the short hair on the blonde!

    The second shot is great. I love the textures of that wrap and the coat.

    The third shot – something about gloves and then open-toed shoes looks ‘not right’. However I really like the trench, the paler-blue jeans which I normally don’t like and then the pop of the red with the shoes.

    This last women sort off puzzels me, and people dressing in this mixed tempereture way always does, I mean – are her hands Very cold and her feet really hot?

    The people who totaly amazes me in this dressing sense are the hip-hopers – wearing huge Moncler jackets in hot nightclubs and Not breaking a sweat!
    Can someone tell me how they do that?

    I really like her shooes though!

    They’re all great, but I can’t resist the last photo: it’s really bordering on silly in a way, the quirk-factor of her appearance, but the shoes and jeans are so great with the gloves and trench that she deserves credit for being so original.

    The third look is so simple and so comfortable. It has so much style.

    Great looks, my favourite is the 2nd one!

    I love the 2nd’s style. Especially the asymmetrical blue cloak with the grey sleeves peeking out.

    The glove is too much on the 3rd one. It looks like she’s about to give a suppository to a cow.

    I love the navy poncho/coat the woman in the 2nd photo is wearing, and the contrasting forearms in the cozy beige sweater underneath, with button detail on the cuffs. The knit of that poncho is so non-bulky and elegant; I want one of those!

    Oh, I covet the navy shawl/sweater on the second woman! Does anyone recognize where is might be from?

    Not a fan of the third one – the gloves are too long to go with the trench and don’t think the severity of black leather gloves compliments the light coloured trench and jeans. Like the shoes, just wish they were completely red instead of half red half tan.

    Third girl: needs a belt to break-up the wide expanse of her trench. The gloves are so wrong they’re er – still wrong. So off, and not in a kooky way. I love pale(r) denim but these jeans look like they’re a very middling wash – and a bit ‘mum’ with everything else. Although, yeah, she’s wearing cute shoes.

    I love the third look — great way to work a trench! The first one needs a scarf to complete the look. The second is the least original.

    Agree with the first few comments on the last look. If I look from the waist up, I love it – love the trench, love those long of-the-moment gloves.

    But I don’t understand the open-toed shoes. And I don’t think the colour of the shoes quite works with the rest.

    Love the top half, though.

    I love them all, but especially the third photo because she looks so natural, so natural. And, her look to me is flea market vintage, but she is obviously from a good background…reminds me of Cole Porter’s Lady is a Tramp:

    “She gets too hungry for dinner at eight
    She loves the theater, but never comes late
    She never bothers with people she hates
    That’s why the Lady is a Tramp

    She likes the clean fresh breeze in her hair
    Life without care
    She’s broke
    That’s OK

    You know…joie de vivre, elan. You really did yourself proud with this shot, Scott. I feel that the more you rely on your intuition, the more you pick out the pure-breds. Of course, we love seeing the hard-core fashionistas, also, but it takes a pro to spot the subtle originals.

    I love the woman in the second photo. Very pretty look. Is that navy paired with black? I always worry about putting those 2 together. Any suggestions?
    The 3rd look is a little too hodge-podge. But, the cuffs on the jeans are outstanding; maybe would go more with a plain shirt so the cuffs can stand out a little more, rather than be lost in the frumple of other clothing.
    Great looks tho. Parisian women are the most beautiful I’ve ever seen in my life!

    The first look is awesome in a kind of early-80s London, New Romantics way. That look is so totally ripe for a comeback.

    There’s a lot of nostalgia in that first look for me. [Wipes away a tear]

    What is the purse the second one is wearing?

    I love the second woman’s cape, as well as the buttons on the sleeve of her knit. Actually, I love the length of the sleeves too. She looks fantastic.
