    Call me boring, but when I see something like these pants I always think: what happens when you throw them in the wash or send them to the cleaners? I do like the colors, especially the purple shirt and the orange hat (gorgeous!). Are those the butterfly Prada shades? I think the bold girls that bought them and take good care of them are going to be very happy that they splurged, now and in the future! Jorge from WPB

    I love the colors in this shot. Obviously, what she’s wearing is really fun and carefree, but I also love the colors on the building behind her. Great work!

    I wish I could pull off so much colour at once. The woman reminds of the Friends character, Phoebe, but older, particularly her style.

    Wow! Talk about applying color well. The neutral colored shades and shoes couldn’t be more perfect next to her neon and nearly neon colors.

    gorgeous. It has been a while since I’ve really been inspired by a look that you’ve posted (this probably has something to do with the weather, seems like everyone starts to bust out their threads as soon as it gets warmer). While a chic, tailored, well designed look is impressive, I personally find an outfit more stunning when it is bold and creative dressing that is artfully done, without seeming like dress up or a costume. Bravo!

    Gorgeous. The blouse and hat complement the colors in the skirt, even as they do not repeat them.

    Anyone inspired by this look should venture to Santa Cruz, California.

    It’s a gorgeous place with the most wonderful people in the most unique, artistic, and expressive clothes.

    i think that this is the first and possibly only outfit i’ve seen on this website that I didn’t like… I always see the beauty that you catch in your photographs, but I guess I’m just not a fan of this look. And I have to add that she looks a heck of a lot like Rachel Zoe!

    I feel like there’s something sorta timeless, retro, and futuristic about this all simultaneously.

    Absolutely love the vibrancy of the color palette, the layering of the colors and the roughness of the texture in the skirt combined with the richness of the purple top and orange beret it is wonderful!

    I would love to see a standing of this look.

    May 20, 2009 at 7:39 pm

    There is so much to love about this outfit, even if I would never wear it. I love the orange turban, the texture of the skirt, and most of all how the whole outfit seems to reflect her personality! I’m constructing a whole narrative for her that involves lots of dancing to outdated record players, wire birdcages, and velvet sofas…..

    It’s a young Joan Didion with more daring and expressive clothes. She reminds me that NY must be warming up to Summer now. In San Francisco, you forget that it gets hot other places. I hear reggae and imagine a barbecue in the park later in her day.

    She pulled off something amazing without looking like she came from working a long shift at the food co-op (not to be disparaging of food co-ops). Do you know her outfit looked when she stood up?

    She knows her style.

    Only a really thin, waif-like, woman could pull that fantastic skirt off.

    Great choice of purple for the blouse. It doesn’t exist in the skirt and adds to the color celebration.

    The orange cap and shoes are on the other end of the red spectrum. Makes everything look like an outfit, with out being one at all. Very cool!
