    Nice, I like the hair and the jacket. But I hate the bag. It’s just plain ugly.

    Hot colour combination for springtime ! Well, the skirt was the wrong choice, but all together – a pretty nice combination.

    Lovely! Could have been a more serious look, but she makes it so adorable with that smirk. She is a cupcake fashionista.

    She is cute as a button.

    Dexter Obvious: I’ve seen plenty of those type of shoes around. You won’t have trouble finding them.

    Love how the shoes look with a big splash of color. Fur hat rounds it off nicely, but I’m against fur wearing.

    The girl is impishly adorable and I love the bright blue with black, but I find the proportions of the clothes too chunky. The shoes are terrific!

    I don’t like the hat at all. Besides not finding it flattering or attractive, I am one of those that feeds fur, not one who wears it.

    Those shoes…oh my, oh my.

    For me the outfit could only be made stronger by one of the peices of clothing having more weight. The skirt is wispy, and the jacket looks as crumpled as linen.

    I suppose the top and bottom (shoes and hat) are grounding enough for the lot of them.

    Are those spectator pumps that she’s wearing? I have a wonderful take on those shoes, but in a pair of flats. I once received a compliment that they look very Coco Chanel, lol. But, a pair of spectator pumps are on my list! :)

    i really like the color of the coat. i’m not feeling the fur hat, though only for ethical reasons. aside from that, the style of the hat is compatible with her shoes and coat. the purse length of the skirt give the outfit a more modern look.

    I love the color of the coat. And the shoes are pretty darn awesome, too. I think the hat is a little disconcerting, though–I guess because it’s hair-colored.

    This is great! Just shows that good cloths do not need to be worn by skinny models to look good. Of course, this lady is still quite special: she is not just anybody, she has style, elegance, good taste, and creativity. She looks fantastic and you captured is really well, Sart! Thanks for this shot!

    Love the entire outfit, but esppecially the shoes and coat, goodness! But I also eally like her attitude; she just seems so nice and approachable. Ciggy and the way she’s holding it is just the cherry on top (blah blah blah smoking is bad for you).

    I’m sorry but I’m really not fussed about anything in this outfit. I don’t think it is particularly individual or well put together. The blue coat is okay, the skirt shape is a bad idea with a swing coat (it just makes you look 3 sizes bigger than you are and the shoes are so-so…i’ve seen better.
    Not up to the usual Satorialist standard.

    The bag looks like Luella, based on the heart shaped hangtag. Those large gold things on it are the tops of gigantic tassels. This is a fun look, but I agree with the commenter who siad the jacket and skirt are a bit crumply

    Not into this one–the proportions are all wrong. The bright blue is good and the shoes are good, but the complete look is a jumble. Also, that hat is dreadful–it gives her a shrunken head that even the cute smile doesn’t make up for.

    The coat’s a great colour but I don’t think it works with that skirt.

    It’s funny, all the people saying she looks French and to me she looks very Glaswegian, out of all the city-styles I am familiar with.

    I also have fallen in love with those shoes! I think I need them -The 3/4 sleeve on the coat and the pillbox type hat are also really lovely- I would definitely wear a more tailored version of this outfit!
