    This is phenomenal. Scott, your ability to spot detail is impeccable, I'm now definitely inspired to experiment with proportions.

    Steampunk meets Laura Ashley! I saw a very similar ensemble the other day, also on Lex. I wonder if it was the same woman? Ever since I wrote a piece on the New Victorian landscape designers for Garden Design http://bit.ly/hSFkkP , I've been noticing New Vickies everywhere I turn. Are the clothes repro or antique? If the latter, how are the women managing without corsets?

    Very nice color palette and textures. The peplums is the essence after the layers, very well thought :)

    Mr. Scott you have very good eyes on details!

    Fun look, and fun to wear, I bet.

    I'm going to try this, with or without the bowling shoes. I'm thinking Frye harnesses, ankle-height.

    The layering beneath her coat is very well done. Her socks and shoes finish off a very distinct look

    Why do the layers remind me of lettuce with a side of wrinkled tissue paper?

    Yes!

    I so often do this myself. I love a slim coat over a full and/or flared skirt and the petticoat effect it creates.

    I love the Edwardian vibe it gives and she's so right to go with menswear style shoes here…anything girly and it's too, I don't know, literal.

    fantastic! I'm really over everyone looking so polished. Bring on the eclectic grandma looks! (or grandpa dressed as grandma if you take into account comme des garcon's aw11 menswear which was brill). I love the weird way my grandma dresses.

    Bespeaks a gentler time of dirt and character and poetry. The shoes provide the paradox that give the look intelligence rather than becoming too twee.
