If I did not know better (and the handbag and necklace were different)…and she wasn't talking on the cell phone either of course…I would think this picture was taken during the 1940s..looks almost post WWII.
WOW! LOVE LOVE LOVE this! Can't wait to see more of this on the streets! In fact, I've probably been waiting my whole life for this type of mixing and miss-matching to become acceptable where people don't look at you like you have two heads if you wear different patterns or different prints!
OMG, this look is by far one of the best looks I've seen, too. Well done…and well chosen pieces from her head down to her toes, even the accessories including what looks like an iPhone. Her makeup and hair style are so appropriate. Love the mixing of the patterns and color choices. The length of the coat is perfect. Very chic!
I feel so staid and bourgeois in saying this but… I don't think this particular mix of patterns looks that great. Maybe because the colours in her sweater are not my faves (I was a kid in the 70s and the copious use of brown and mustard yellow in people's houses at the time left me scarred), but this particular mix makes my brain itch. What I do like about it, though, is the 1930s silhouette: the gorgeous buckle shoes, skirt, mid-length navy coat and Wallis Simpsonesque necklace. And her satchel which manages to combine gamine charm with womanly elegance.
But what do I know? She is the fashion innovator, not I.
I like the pattern of her top, with the necklace layed over it. The shoes are my favorite part of the look.
The skirt really doesn't do much for me (but maybe I'm just jealous, because I can't pull off a skirt of that length). I don't like the patterns on the skirt or how it clashes with the pattern of the top. Although, I prefer it when people are experimental with their looks rather than play it safe.
I'd love to hear what you like about it, though. It's always great to read your comments, Mr. Sart, and I usually wish that they were a bit longer!
The pattern mix and the 70's/french feel IS really cool, but what grabs me is the awesome necklace! Completely out of context, but so right! I wish more women would have the chutzpah to wear something like that.
