    the only time i’ve ever seen spots look quite so dignified, perhaps the person more than the garment itself. How fun.

    Love the Marni aesthetic of this woman. I mention this only because she makes me think of Suze Orman in Marni! Now that’s a fashion moment!

    I really like the structure of her top/jacket. Very nice. It’s also nice to see someone embrace the gray hair. There’s no need to worship at the altar of youth. Your own or someone else’s.

    I love everything she’s wearing — except the purse.

    I’ve seen bags like this one before on this site and always thought their poofy silhouette wrecked every outfit they were paired with.

    An angular purse as a contrasting geometry with the op art circles motif and her hair would have been perfect.

    In my opinion. But would Sart see it as too Nordstrom?

    Wow!! I love how she styled her hair!! What caught my attention almost instantly though i how her handbag isnt small like most women have…its actually pretty big and she carries it like carrying a carry-on at the airport!!

    Where to start?!? Love the pattern in the jacket/top. I just saw a Rex Ray exhibit so the oval cutouts remind me of that. The bold necklace is perfect and I do like the softness of the bag. Now, the hair. The cut is great, the style dramatic and the color works on her. I would love it if I looked good in what is now my natural color, but my hairdresser and I think not. Because my skin is very fair and I have blue eyes with light brows I would fade away like Casper the little ghost. That’s why not everyone can/or will go grey even though they might want to. Sometimes a statement just isn’t worth it.

    It’s very “era specific”!
    I almost feel like there’s a matching skirt and go-go boots somewhere close by.
    However she wears it well and is in great shape, as the large dots might not work on a larger frame.
    Love the natural grey hair-wish more women would allow their own to go.

    i debated that bag awhile back — it’s the softest leather, so you have to clutch it like that so all its contents don’t completely weigh it down like a bowling ball!

    it’s a marni jacket. and i agree with previous commenters, she is the spitting image of suze orman! suze’s look works for suze, i think, but this is an option she could perhaps try? i hope one of her handlers or assistants reads the sart and sends her a link. love the hair on this lady, too. she’s so quintessentially italian. elegant, refined, even with the marni quirkiness.

    she is vibrant, confident, elegant. A wonderful moment.

    As for her sense of fashion – right on the mark: I noticed the person first, and the clothing second. The clothing only enhances the beautiful person wearing it, does not overpower her.

    what a great look.

    Marimekko again! Well, it is the perfect time to wear our lovely cotton Marimekko tops and dresses! I wish more Americans owned and wore Marimekko clothing in addition to just purchasing the fabric. Their cotton clothing and knits are luxurious.

    I love this ladies selection of a darker palate with this print, even though white pants would have been wonderful, especially with her choice of bold necklaces.

    Her lovely kid leather clutch and dark pants are a perfect monochromatic match with her layered haircut and color.

    Great background and lovely photograph Scott.
