    Great idea that belt, keeps the dress from looking like nightwear. I like her smiley face :-)

    the bold red, flirty shoe with the non-chalant, almost masculine belt with the sweet innocence of the dress is a perfect mix for me. i adore this look!

    The shoes are such a perfect match with the muted tone of the dress. RED SHOE DIARIES. Love.

    I LOVE everything about this outfit except for the belt! It seems that the dress already provides a break with the horizontal lacy strip. I love how she combined the textures of the smooth fabric of the dress, the luxury of the fur bag (vintage?) and the impulse of the red heels. More than anything, she looks happy and that is what counts! Jorge from WPB

    I love the dress, the belt and her pretty hair.

    I would prefer different shoes so the dress would have got all the attention it deserves.

    And a other way of holding her cigarette would have given it a more classic touch…

    Though it is a very nice photograph!

    i like the ciggie bom-bom.

    on a serious note, the color of her shoes makes her outfit. she has a hint of dorothy from "the wizard of oz." i don't think we're in kansas anymore, but her dress has a little prairie aspect to it.

    What is this obsession with belting everything? Is she planning on doing some weight lifting? The shoes do look heavy! I love the dress, the shoes and the bag; if she had to tie something around her waist I'd have suggested she use a long red silk ribbon the same colour as the shoes…the long ends would have fluttered against the skirt as she walked. Or she could have skipped the belt thing for a large red bead necklace that ended half way down the skirt. I should probably get dressed now and pretend I have a life!

    Yes, absolutely Love the masculine belt with the ultra feminine dress. The colour palette – dove grey tone of the dress, neutral tone of the bag and brown belt are great together but the red shoes really set the whole thing off beautifully. Lovely, lovely.

    I have been in the situation myself of wanting to belt something that was cut under the bust but never could figure out if it looked right. It looks great doesn't it! It adds real interest to the dress.

    The belt just jumps out as so wrong to me. I do think the dress is very night gown-y and it looks like she got up late, left on her night clothes and stuck the accessories on – didn't look in the mirror!! – and left the house.
    She's really pretty though, and looks happy with herself. Most important.

    Something very scandalous about the look: mussed-up hair, a hint of lingerie in the lace detailing at the cleavage, red peep-toe platform shoes, a half-smoked cigarette, the carelessly tied belt, wrinkles across the dress and even the clutch carelessly stuffed under her arm. None very risque on its own, but combined, they evoke transgression. As a moment, it looks great. As fashion, I am a little less sure. It is, as Mr. Schuman often says, inspiring, at the very least.

    I love the shoes, but the rest doesn't work at all. I get the belt in a way, cos without it, the dress would look like a nightgown, and she would look like walking home from "work" 3am. A bit scandalous, a bit whimsy, but cute anyway.

    In 1982 I walked up to the door to pick up my daughter from day care; the door opened and 2-year old Molly squealed and said, "Red shoes!"

    My outfit was so similar to this; just, no leather belt and yachting stripes on the skirt…

    She is now a clothing designer; it was in her bones ;)!

    What I absolutely love about this is the belt! Her attitude is exemplified by the belt. It totally doesn't go – it's vintage and it's probably a men's belt cos it is so long but yet with her beauty and confidence it just works.

    I actually don’t think the belt does anything for the outfit but the choice of colors is interesting and it works great in this case. I probably wouldn’t have thought of pairing red pumps with this dress. I’d choose a different bag though.
