This woman look great, but she also looks very expensive. I think if I had a lot of money to spend on clothes, I’d look great too. The ones who interest me the most are the ones with simple budgets, who have to dig for clothes in thrift shops and tag sales. They are the really truly creative ones.
I love this look. An intemporal classic but creative look.
I totally disagree with Amy C too. I think this woman does not LOOK expensive at all. She is quite natural to me, hardly has any make-up on, has messy hair, simple ballet flats (I’ve got nearly the same for Â£4) and not high heels or expensive labelled it-bag. She is quite understated I reckon, with classic shapes and colours. As for the dress she might have made it herself, I know many people who would do that. The jacket is a classic she might have had for years, or found in a thrift shop. I might be totally wrong, and everything could actually be expensive, but i think she does not LOOK expensive. And not posh either. She looks lovely.
her outfit is so delightful, from her sweet little bangs with the stray hair, love the minidress with the feather… and the jacket.. looks so chic with that thrown together feel that makes you go.. aha!
i saw this on style.com, and i am so glad it is here so i can open it up and view the details. i didn’t realize before the feathers are on the coat — i love it! no doubt this can be pulled off without much money. really adorable, thanks sart!
My favorite part of this picture is her cheeks. Rosy cheeks are something I wouldn’t usually notice, but I can imagine the cold, crisp Winter air in Paris brushing against her face, giving her that glow. Her whole outfit symbolizes Winter to me, but not in a gloomy way.
i disagree with amy c. yes, this outfit looks potentially expensive. However, the really beautiful thing about it is not the pieces themselves (though they are lovely), it’s the sheer adorableness of the woman. She’s charming and quirky and could as easily catch the eye wearing something from H & M.
oh my god!! i’m wearing the same shoes as her right now!! Â£35 from Dune. bargain. so clearly you don’t need to be loaded to look expensive…if you spend a bit more on one amazing piece (ie the dress) it lifts your whole outfit. i love her.
I disagree with amy c as well. regardless of their provenance, these clothes look creative and creatively chosen, not merely swanky. also perhaps let’s move away from the reverse prejudice that only the thrift-shop shoppers, the non-rich, and the non-models can be considered creative.
love the rosy cheeks as well- she seems to capture the innocent essence of the character Amelie, balancing the boldness of her clothes. I’m inspired most by her mix of textures and the illusion of texture. Her combination of soft wool, airy feathers and even a sleek flat make this quite an innovative look.
she doesn’t look haughty at all. she actually seems down-to-earth, happy and stylish. the feathers are like a spark from her imagination. she’s not a show-off. i’m glad she wore a practical coat over the dress. it also looks like she’s wearing flats. i can picture her wearing this fun outfit to work on a grey day
I love this woman! I remember the shot of her when her hair was up in two high buns, like cat ears…She seems to bring a great sense of whim into the world, for example: the feather accents. Whether the pieces are expensive or not, simply choosing what to wear is crucial. And this woman chooses how to be with a sense of imagination and dream – which I find extremely inspirational.
To amy c; Personally IÂ´d hate to dig drift shops and sales.A sensible idea would be to just donate clothes and stuff to those who need them,if they are well kept and clean. The idea to wear `vintage clothesÂ´makes me want to vomit.
