Well she looks warm. :) But yeah, I love the combination of her coat and dress, which are both the perfect length. And the way she fits in perfectly with the background. Why is it that in this photo and the previous one the person is looking away from the camera? It looks quite cool but I can’t imagine them doing it of their own accord.
Great shot. She shows a great sense of proportion and texture, which is interesting in the absence of color. I’m not a fan of most pieces of this outfit (save the coat of course) but it’s the combination that makes it work. (whole greater than the sum of its parts kinda thing)
Though, I can’t help but be annoyed that she’s looking at her blackberry!
A beautifully composed shot, and her outfit is lovely. What a gorgeous coat–alas, I’m too short to wear such a garment! I also love how the colour of her hair goes with the earth tones in her outfit, including the bit of brown shirt sleeve visible under the sleeves of the coat.
One question, though: are some people just adept at keeping white boots clean?! These look brand new. If I wore them, they’d have some kind of dirt on them within 1/2 an hour.
I am the queen of somehow managing to mess up a wonderful brand-new thing within the first five minutes of using/wearing it, so I say this with some level of authority: Vectra spray (http://www.vectraspray.com/).
Best stain repellent I’ve ever found. I’ve used it on both my white pea coat and my white pants between every cleaning and they still look great – as opposed to when I used Scotch Guard, which itself stained the coat (and which thankfully came out, after a very expensive dry cleaning). I’ve also used it on many pairs of shoes and again, works great. You’ll never be able to keep them looking absolutely pristine, but you can keep them looking lovely longer. The spray helps immensely with stains and smudges and dirt build-up.
Scratches from tripping while going up stairs or walking through a parking lot? That’s another matter.
She is quite inspiring …….she isn’t trendy or obviously fashiony at all but she is so utterly stylish and so appropriately dressed. I always thing that appropriateness is a large part of being stylish.
yay! no fur…see? it is easy to be warm and look good without putting a creature through a life of torment. just add a designer bag and crackberry and whalha! your done.
i like that hat, wispy lavender looks good with all of those brown and cream tones. not random at all, although if she turned 90 degrees i might have a different opinion if that blue thing on the hat was a crocheted flower. now that would do it in.
I wonder if that sweater coat is vintage? It has an arts-and-crafts look. The bag is classically understated; this is another commentary on layering and on hues. The look is soft and natural. The hat is kind of sporty, but that’s OK, really becaues I actually believe it is doing the job of keeping her warm. I am surprised that she is not wearing gloves, though.
love that!, def. a fav. sheÂ´s like a 70s mia farrow hippie but upper class and ladylike. itÂ´s the mix with good materials. is that a fau fur skirt, mocka, wool or something? itÂ´s great altogether, great bag. (and amazing coat, and hair) and the cap! thatÂ´s the sugar on top. :) to me this is so much more class than the manhattan glitzy types.
so, who’s the monochromist here? the lady or the eye? the cardigan coat is fantastic and so is the skirt from what i can see. the posture adds even more flow with its lines, and the hat blends nicely in the background. i am not convinced by the boots, but maybe just because they appear trendier than the rest of the ensemble, which is classic in its own way. yes, a wonderful photo.
Your photography is so skillful, talented, both! And yes, this second photo is a lovely example of your attention to detail, capturing someone ELSE’s attention to detail. I love seeing fashion through your eyes!
Very cute. I like it except the boots – too precious. I also agree with whomever said a flower on the had would do the outfit in. I just need to add though that whomever made the comment about one not needing fur when one has a giant sweater…ACK! You have clearly never lived anywhere near the north…Come and join me in -50. ;-) (I actually wear down, not fur, but have no problem with people wearing fur in some environments. Fur was very popular when my mother was young and I remember putting on her fur coat when I was a child. Oh so warm and wind resisting…)
