    I love the canary dress and how she accessorized her outfit. Truly classic and effortless.

    I love everything about her look! The dress is beautiful, so are the shoes, the necklaces, the bag…

    Beautiful dress indeed…and even better because it’s yellow, which I ocnsider a difficult colour.

    Looking forward to read the story about the elegant gentleman from the last post…

    So feminine without being too romantic or flirty/girly. How do I learn this? <3

      It is probably a combination of knowing what colours and shapes suit our skin tone and body shape? And a deft ability with accessories. She does it well! i’m interested enough by this look to want to see what she wears on an ongoing basis.

    Good outfit:simple and sunny!
    And the black bag adds a touch of break at total light mustard yellow dress.

    Great look! Dropwaist dress is very 80′s but looks so modern in that color with that neckline. Fun to see the old look new.

    i just think way she's carrying her bag ruins the outfit.. it clashes with the necklaces and makes it look too messy.. other then that.. the canary dress is GORG!! and the gladiators!! TO DIE FOR <3

    the dropwaist and the rolled up sleeves makes the outfit look really relaxed and comfy but her accessories definitely make it look chic as well. nicely done!

    With those legs she can wear everything.
    What attracts me especially here is the material of the dress.
    Looks like a thin wool-mix.
    And the darts at the neckline + the thin scarf hanging loose. And the rolled up sleeves. Very 20ies!
    I really like it.
    The shoes are sharp and turn the outfit into the right direction.

    Mr. Schumann, once more a great proof of your wonderful talent: The same way you choose your “models” you choose the perfect backgrounds for them.
    Yellow and grey is actually très en vogue.

    I wonder if she got some specialty mustard at Dean and Deluca, while wearing her wonderful mustard dress?

    Now, if she did, that would be quite humorous :) Good use of browns and yellow…

    and sniiiiff, could i BE any more jealous of the obvious warmth in nyc, it’s deepest fall here in mid-europe already…!!

    sart when you shoot a girl in a dress like this you have to ask her who it is by- to satisfy all of our curiosity!

    Stunning dress, stunning haircut, wonderful figure.
    She obviously knows what suits her and what doesn’t.
    Certaintly, few women could carry off such a shade of mustardy yellow- one really requires such a warm skintone for it. She looks beautiful.

    I know that such a thing would take away the art and mystery of your photographs, but i’d kind of love it if you posted where these people purchased their clothin as well. A few months back, you posted a picture of a girl in a Fendi dress, and it took me up until a month ago to discover that it was Fendi and purchase it.
    Still, it wouldn’t be the same as such sartorial style, elegance and beauty as captured by those you photographed was obtainable to anybody and everybody by your naming the designers and stores… quite the rut!

    I agree with beths @ 8:37 — the beauty lies in the fact that she “lets it speak, but controls it.” Excellent way to describe it!

    The necklaces are also perfect.

    reminds me of the yellow from “The Village” which was known as the ‘safe color’.

    i like this look and she knows how to wear it!i like the dress and its color, what i don’t really like are those sandals…they are very nice and stylish, but i have another idea about what she could have wear and still remain very elegant:)anyway someshoes or boots,another color, in contrast with yellow, maybe red:)

    that yellow makes me think of one of Sonia Rykiel’s collections…she had these amazing velvet dresses of that same exact yellow. I kept seeing it everywhere, it almost makes me feel that that yellow is “hers” now.

    The neckline is reminiscent of the silk pieces that rachel comey has been doing for the past few seasons. Very flattering! We all live in a Yellow Dress Dream! (sing along!)
