I absolutely love those colours, especially in the second outfit, combined with black shorts and very flat sandals. As for the shoes in the first picture, I have to admit that their front, well, cleavage?, reminds me of the cut of some slippers my gran used to wear at home… Comfortable to step in and out, you know, but…
I love the bold colour. I like that it draws your attention and makes ‘a statement’. I love black and white for its simplicity although it’s also understated whereas a bold colour is simple yet dramatic!
Why, why, WHY do people insist on black? Such bold, vibrant, cool (literally, not figuratively) tones practically beg to be paired with white. Beg. Maybe it’s just my tropical sensibility. But try it– envision both pieces differently: the purple dress with a gold sandal, perhaps. And the goldenrod top with a white bottom of any sort. Much better…
yes, the purple dress is great but those booties are awful! and, as a woman with cankles, i can tell you that there are more flattering shoes. i’ve become used to how my legs look in flats – embrace it! i would love to have that dress. the yellow shirt is just beautiful – the pintucking and the tiny buttons, and the shape is wonderful for summer, without being so long that it looks maternity-ish.
I adore the dress but object to the black shoes – she should combine that wonderful bold color with a sexy pair of black high heeled sandals. But I am rushing to the stores to find a dress like that – it’s magnificent.
I really like the girl’s look in the fuscia/purple dress, but I think the booties are distracting- they shorten her beautiful legs, especially considering the line of the dress. It just makes her legs look half as long as they could when taking in her whole image.
I love the mustard shirt with the miniskirt and the flats. The shirt is wonderful – sometimes when there is so much volume at the back it can look overpowering in the front too but she just looks gorgeous.
I LOVE the shoes in the first pic. Granted, she probably could have found a better pair to go with that dress, but the shoes in and of themselves are beautiful. I don’t think they cut off her leg at all because of the slivers of skin you see on top of each one. Some strappy heels (in a different color) probably would have been better, but I’d still wear those booties with another outfit when I’m out and about!
These are two very beautiful rich vibrant colors. It’s colors like these that make me so thankful for the existence of a colorful world! I’ve always wondered why women tend to shy away from “real” color. Maybe it’s because they have been conditioned to think black is the most fashionable color and white is synonomous with fresh and new. However, as you can see from these pictures there’s nothing like a shot of beautiful bold color! Looking at them makes you feel happy, energetic and boundless. I applaud her choice!!!
I see these elf-like heels everywhere now, yet I can’t help but wonder how practical they are. Can anyone actually walk in these comfortably throughout the day? Then again, it is fashion: no pain, no gain!
i think the woman in the purple dress was going for a little subversive rather than “pretty”. i would have never picked those shoes to wear with that dress, but maybe tha’ts the point. putting two trends together in an unexpected way.
