indian summer? toronto can’t believe what you in nyc can get away with at this time of year…its hot today but it’s been very cool lately…i already miss the bare legs of summer…thanks for the reminder :)
Concerning the LONG of it, notice how her round sunglasses accentuate the cut of the dress around her breasts. In a way her sunglasses mirror the round cut of the dress. Lovely and very feminin. Love it.
the second woman is obviously not very comfortable in either the length of the dress or the whole outfit which is a shame, really. i like the way the silver shoes pop against her black mini but i don’t think the belt was all that necessary. i’m not a big fan of the bag, either. she’s trying to play match up with the belt and bag but i think if she did a silver bag to enhance the shoes the whole outfit would fall together much more nicely.
Love the first dress but I really don’t like the look in the second (tee hee to the person who said that short skirts with those sandals remind him/her of 1950s movies with Roman soldiers). The reason that I don’t like the second look is that I can’t stand the “I sat out and tanned” look. Without the tan she’d be stunning and natural. With the tan I find the look tacky.
#1 lovely dress. black and long for summer, done well, though i feel like a purse/accessory with a little color would suit the summery style a little better. but it’s all about black and white right now, huh. that woman should never let her hair grow long with a graceful neck like that.
#2 the detailing at the hem and neckline is what it’s all about. that woman is muscular! kudos to her that she can wear ankle-tied flats without it stumpifying her legs. as for her body language, i’m fairly certain her intention was to display her accessories, but it does seem to make her look a little tense and guarded. i’m gonna miss summer, but this black/summer trend is a creative way to segue into fall.
