Ladies is right! All three look wonderful, but the first one os by far my favorite! Her balanced, tough-feminine look is beautiful. Great proportions with the short jacket and midi, full skirt, and small but arresting accessories like the small bag in popping white and chunky scarf in a muted tone. Love it! A truly inspiring look that is also easy to replicate by anyone :)
1) I honestly can’t make up my mind if I like this outfit or not. I mean, it’s polished and well put-together … but for me, the combo of masculine (leather jacket) with full skirt and shoes with bow detail is usually something I love, but I’m not quite loving it here.
2) *Sigh*. Giovanna. Will you just LOOK at that coat? DIVINE.
3) Rei’s suit! I love it. The top and shoes not so much … but this woman is fabulous.
You nailed it!
Seeing the cavalcade of amazing clothes during Fashion Month, it is often daunting to think of what to DO with it all, wether you have the means to afford to buy any of it , or not!
For some lucky ones, it’s what to acquire and how to incorporate it into the wardrobe without looking like you made a left turn off the runway.
For others…( like ME) it’s taking a look at the closet and seeing what can be reworked with what, hitting the old refresh button on existing pieces, getting new ideas for vintage shopping, mixing in the odd sample sale find when it comes along…all inspired by what I see paraded by on the runway!
Seeing these women who, regardless of their roles and their means, maintain their individual style in the midst of the fashion maelstrom, it’s truly great!
The first is my favorite. She could give a seminar on how a mature woman can dress with flair and present a modern, edgy appearance without sacrificing dignity and personal style and without looking like she is trying too hard to recapture her 20′s. Very sexy.
First photo: bows on the shoes, too big.
Second: very elegant
Third: hurts my eyes, trousers too long, not well cut so not becoming to her figure, bag is a no and the print of the suit is that of a clown.
I love the unaffected simplicity of these ladies. It is something I strive for myself when dressing in my life everyday, but it so, so hard, here in the states to find affordable clothes that have simplicity and elegance of line, especially if one lives far from an urban style center. It’s nothing but spangles/sequins/polyesters/doo-dads/gee-gaws, etc. Please keep posting photos of lovely, elegant women who dress with beautiful, natural simplicity. We need to be reminded of true elegance and some of us need reminders so we don’t forget and get absorbed by the hideous commercial mediocrity that passes for “style” in the hinterlands.
SCOTT! I LOVE that you feature the interesting and eclectic woman who really oozes style.
This is so much harder to do than magazine glam, and SOoooooo much more interesting.
Thanks for all the hard work you do!
The first woman is absolutely cool and classy. She looks effortlessly chic, while Giovanna Battaglia looks like she often tries to strike the attention, and those shoes are ugly, in my opinion. Rubber round-toe shoes? Not for me.
I don’t particularly like the third woman’s outfit, but I admit it’s quite interesting.
The first one is the best for me, easily.
