    Loving the work-style shirt with the hoops and short hair. She definitely has unique a point of view and it really works.

    I am loving supershort hairstyles on girls right now! My hair is natural and I would love to cut it really short…but you have to have the bone structure for it.

    Also her shoes…are those wing tips? Love them!!

    I love these man style shirts over skinny pants, they have a great proportion. Also, the big bag looks great with this outfit. She's using a lot of outsized items here, the shirt, the bag, the glasses and the earrings, and it works.

    I have tried and tried to rock hair that short but just don't have a sufficiently feminine face for it. I am so jealous of women who can wear their hair super-short and still look GORGEOUS and strong and chic. I hope she wakes up every day and says: "Damn. I am beautiful and blessed."

    September 12, 2010 at 11:48 am

    Love the whole look, especially her hair. I find a lot of times over done hair actually detracts from a person's beauty. This pared down style gives her gorgeous features center stage. As far as the outfit goes, my personal preference would have been to go for a more girly shoe with the men's tailored shirt, perhaps a ballet flat, a gladiator sandal or some heels. She looks fab, though.

    it's the shape of the head, the blue against coffee skin, the shoes and purse of tan (i love to match) and most artistic is the combination of stripes. I love to dress in lingos.

    Sart, I'm really surprised you would comment on that hair. Don't you come across many African women? I've often thought all the gorgeous hair styles I see on African girls and women would make a beautiful book. The close styles like that are endless, limited only by the imagination. I have affectionate names for many but that would be giving everything away!
