    I love the way she off-sets the chrome yellow coat with a beautifully textured, muted, understated dress that compliments her hair colour. Unfortunately, for me, the purple bag kills it – it’s just to obvious and hard looking.

    That color is so hard to pull off, but she does it nicely. And i love the pop of purple.

    i love this! the dress and belt are perfect under her coat, and her scarf ties everything together…it keeps the bright purple of her bag from being too much. this photo will definitely influence how i shop this winter.

    Her coat reminds me of Catherine Denouve in The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. I probably butchered some of the spelling in that last sentence. To any French speakers: my apologies.

    her dress is so whimsical; it works well underneath the structured coat.

    I always love your work, but your postings in the last few days have been deeply inspiring. I love the color stories, the students, and your story about Susan’s hair. Many things I will be stealing stylewise, and one thing I will remember forever.

    This is so good… yellow and purple are brilliant together and she’s got it in just the right proportions so its not too in your face.
    The dress is beautiful.

    I doubt I could pull off that colour (and I can usually pull off most with my colouring) but how amazing does that look with the purple accents!

    And thanks for showing that not everyone traipses around in 4-inch heels!

    Yes, thanks for all the pictures of women in flats. The picture of the falling model almost made me cry.

    Love the colors – although I’d like to see the outfit with the ubiquitous charcoal grey tights instead of black.

    Something odd is going on with the fit at the top of the dress. This may have something to do with the other thing that bothers me: the awful posture. This young woman will have a dowager’s hump by the time she is 40 (or before!). and I think her bad posture is adversely affecting the fit of her dress.

    great purple clutch!

    Hello sart, you are right. The colours are georgeous. I realized them, before I had read your heading. Great.

    Wow ! THIS is a coat I would buy myself, perfect lenght if you’re not tall and infact when I look a the rest of her outfit…I’d just like to swap clothes with her …
    She looks sweet, fierce and stylish all at the same time ..

    LOVE this! The coat is amazing… and I love the bag and scarf with it. And who doesn’t love a great pair of tights?

    She’s perfect from head to toe. These colors are so hard to pull off but it’s ravishing.
    One of the best photos so far

    The yellow and purple combination is to die for! I love everything about the outfit…I feel like I would only dress this nicely if I was in New York or anywhere in Europe. You just can’t look so fabulous in northern california or perhaps I just can’t afford all the fabulous clothes!

    Perfection! I’d like to see some Wayfarers or OPs in black to round out the black tights!
