Magnificnt…You caught the perfect example of lady like dressing…She is so approachable and unpretenious…She could show up just about anywhere and be the belle of the ball. You are on to something real here Scott!
Elegant, elegant, elegant. As another person commented: very Grace Kelly. The design and colour of the structured green bag reinforces the 1950s look of the classic grey outfit while lifting the whole from bland to beautiful. I love this look.
I love her look. She must feel so comfortable. Love the little peek of color on the sole of her shoe and I love the green bag. I wish they were colors which complemented each other a little better though. A subdued red bag would be stunning.
I'm going to say that I feel the top looks a little messy. The top is casual enough to be tucked in, adding to the whole refined look without it being too stuffy. But don't get me wrong- I think the look is top notch. She is lovely!
But green and red ARE complimentary – opposites on the colour wheel. I think the red sole and green bag work beautifully together and yet don't match, they don't need to. It works wonderfully with the grey too :)
She's very classy and the outfit is indeed simple and beautiful, but the top is a very matronly cut for such an attractive and slim woman. I think she needs a more fitted top and a belt, but I can certainly imagine what a vision she must have been in the context described.
I have a gray gunex wool skirt and gray merino wool boat neck sweater that pair similar to this ensemble. something about the subtly slouchy take the fifties lines, in gray, that feels so luxurious. i don't know what it is. any ideas?
A real eye turner. The whole issue of monotone versus contrasts is a fascinating one. Most of my life I've worn classic clothing but with contrasting "power" ties of one sort and another but I'm starting to appreciate the potential of monotone ties, shirts and suits providing it's done skilfully. Done unskilfully it just looks dull. This lady presents a great example of how simplicity and monotone when done properly can blow you away.
to lady d: but it's so EASY to do risky. the hard thing is what she has done: worn elegant clothing while being sexy and a little unexpected (green bag, rather tall heels) and a totally gracious, sunny manner. that is something you cannot fake. She looks GREAT.
THAT is a spectacular look. she accomplishes what few are ever able to accomplish, that is: grave and style in a way that appears effortless and livable. It looks so elegant and class in an individualistic way that reminds me of the simplicity of early Chanel. and the monochromatic look makes it that much better with just enough of the green to make you want to come back for a second glance.
This site captures what people actually wear and that's what is so great about this look – she doesn't look "stylized" but like a woman who gives the appropriate amount of time to her look and then just wears it. Also, for us blonds with fair skin who look washed out in black, grey is the perfect alternative, as she demonstrates. And, her green bag is revelation.
What a beautiful woman and lovely outfit. She manages the proportions of the top and bottom well. It could have easily been unflattering, but the fit is perfect and the short sleeves and bare slender legs let you see just enough.
The color of the bag is marvelous with the gray, and the shoes are very flattering to her slender ankles. If only more young women had the confidence to leave a bit to the imagination like she does.
