    What I love the most about this (apart from her flats) is her confidence. Gorgeous girl and gorgeous photo.

    Wow, that pic is amazing. The background !
    And the woman is… "la classe italienne". Nice trousers, hair cut, necklace, shoes. Every thing. The wall you found is perfect for this photo. I wonder what is this bottle she holds.

    Thanks again for your blog.

    How funny, this is so similar to what I am wearung today. Not sequins but (kind of) french emmbelished white top.

    I love to wear something rather night-ish during the day every once in a while

    She's beautiful. Love her eyebrows!

    The outfit is fun, but I'm not digging the fit of her pants. I'll never get into the baggy-pant look, especially when it makes one's bum look three times bigger than it is.

    I also appreciate the colour contrast of this photo, with the blues, whites, and greys. Superb.

    Really pretty…sometimes sequins can be overdone jersey-style (no judgement! I'm a jersey girl myself) so it's nice to see it done in a soft elegant way…

    Nice photo. Great casual outfit–the style of the top allows it to be worn by day even if sequinned–although I'm not sure I would've noticed if it hadn't been written. Love the strappy sandals and background.

    Total elegance. The ease of the pieces and of the woman herself are fantastically attractive.

    As for the fit of the pants, I think a loose pant drawn in at the waist can be–and, here, is–a tremendously sexy look. I don't necessarily look for "sexy" in an ensemble., but this woman has definitely got that. I am more seduced by her eye: LOVE HER EYE.

    I love this look, daring with the white sequins and the plain pants. I personally like carrot pants, they are easy and new. Rolled up is how they should be. Because she's Italian, she has the access to the most beautiful necklaces in the world.

    She's got the most gorgeous skin and she radiates calm confidence. I'm on board with everything, but I'm going to have to sit on the bench with the people who aren't loving the pants. It looks like she bought them when she was fifteen pounds heavier. They make me see the ghost of her bigger self. Some 1960's fit pedal pushers would make this a home run. She really is a beauty nevertheless.

    June 17, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    The wall is a great backdrop and I love everything about it-even the pants. She's thin enough so that wearing them a few sizes too big is a statement, not a faux-pas.

    My favorite part of her outfit is actually the pants, love the cut.

    Love her look, her masculine/feminine sultriness and the gorgeous–but not-too-much exposure of caramel skin. Love that the pants are a bit baggy–skin-tight is the opposite of sexy!!!!!!

    She looks like a moviestar from the '50s with that headscarf and hairstyle.

    I am just stunned at how gorgeous and perfect this is. Kind of reminds me of the 1980s/Bananarama look that I LOVED so much back then but don't have nearly the style to bring it back. Yet she is so modern. I could stare at this all day.

    I absolutely adore this look. Those trousers are to die for. She is like a dancer.

    I love this look, although i wish she had worn heels! The multiple gold necklaces set it off perfect.

    I don't understand why this is thought of as stylish… she's lovely, and the picture is great, of course, but the pants are absolutely hideous and make her look huge.

    She makes the outfit look effortless: simple and put-together. Lovely, confident girl!

    I like the confidence of the pose! The hand on the waist, very italian: relaxed, sensual, poised, gorgeous.
    The outfit and the background add interest of course.

    I’m pretty sure many have already mentioned this, but she is the epitome of “Italian”. She’s just so Italian that if you had put this picture without a caption, I would have known it was from Italy.
    Her toned arms & lovely complexion are as beautiful as her jewelry (:
