    you are definitely correct, this makes me ashamed of always opting for all black out of habit.

    I don't like colors at all, far too earthy for my taste, but I like the look anyway! Especially the hat and the skinny jeans on long thin legs.
    But the same clothes in black-blue would look far much better.


    March 15, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    I love this look. That coat! The blouse and pants look great together! I love how she toned it down some with all of the neutral accessories. The hat is the bomb!

    Colored pants– yes! It's also funny how it's all about the shade. Certain shades of purple, green, and red would just look like a cheesy re-creation of mardi gras sensibilities. But these shades are so right, and right for right now– seventies-inspired and sophisticated yet playful.

    Seriously one of the best subjects you have found and shot to date – what a stunner! So chic, such an individual sense of style, an incredible use of colour, and what a stunning face. Simply perfection in my book. Would love to see what she wears on a daily basis, if it´s at this level every day, it puts us all to shame…Giada

    All black is boring. It says you bought everything knowing it would 'match'. Technically, plaid has the most potential because it can have so many colors that say something individually or as a team.

    I love the coat. I love the pattern. It reminds me of the crazy car coats of the seventies. Do you think it's vintage?
