Won-der-ful. What I always say, stick to basics!!! This is nothing more than a light blue shirt, a cropped navy blazer, denim skirt and a killer bag. OK, the legs help. I think the main idea in this image is the fit, everything fits just so, yet is an outfit that could be put together from cheap finds, as long as they fit well. Am I thinking right that the YSL Muse bag is becoming iconic and classic? And yes love the shoes and LOVE the legs. Jorge from W Palm Beach
She’s got a great bag and a distinct and powerful personality, but I would be lying if I said I loved her style. I feel like it’s Flight Attendant up top and Indian Princess from the hips down. Clearly I just don’t understand.
The only thing I would change is a black belt with a gold buckle, but honestly, she’s too beautiful for me to notice that if she were to walk by me on the street. The cuff length is great and I like the coat open.
The boots seemed out of place on her at first, but I like they match her hair color and the frills on the boots mimic her hair as she struts down the street. Well done.
Exceptt for the stogie, everything about this woman is cute- especially in that 1970′s, Ali McGraw kind of way. She reminds me of this girl I had a crush on in the fourth grade around that time, named Amy Fritz (Amy! Are you still around? I lost the baby fat!)
I like the pairing of the menswear-tailored blazer and oxford button down, with the sinfully (scandalous!) short denim mini.
The boots are delectable -like they’re made out of cocoa, and have chocolate “shavings” as the trim. I like the bag, too, which is 25% as big as she is. Is it navy?
So many thoughtful comments, and observations! This may be irrelevant, but I’m sure that one of you must know where to find the best button-down shirt for a woman. Any ideas? Anyway, I agree with Mona about the jean mini, and I love Jason’s boots-hair observation!
love mixing classic with funky, but this one doesn’t jive with me. of course her smile and confidence are fantastic as are the legs. love the boots just not sure it all “works for me”. maybe a black mini. the denim with the boot doesn’t work. only one outdoorsy item. what do i know?
Wow. She is rocking. I love the simple pieces and how on her they are far from simple, they are HOT!
I don’t give a shit about the cigarette (although I do hate them), they work in pictures unless someone is blowing smoke out or sucking it in. In the hand they’re great props. And, if you don’t care about getting cancer or shriveling your face up, or having bad breath and stinky hair, they’re a great diet aid!
She is rocking the menswear enviably. I like the short sleeve length on the jacket, especially, which allows her cuff to come through freely.
I second the appeal for good women’s shirts. I like Thomas Pink but the patterns are not always good and I don’t know if they do button-down. I go to Lupo’s to look at the display and beg for a women’s line. Until I can go to Milan, and those low-key shirt shops where you can casually order one, custom-made.
What a knockout! Everything is going swell until we get below the calves there and then feh. If i had legs like that, god knows i wouldn’t blaspheme what the good lord gave me to walk with by wearing such Fragglerock little monsters like those! But she clearly knows how good she looks and is just daring you to say something nasty about those cheeky little foot demons, just _daring_ you.
I agree with Monique, i don’t give a shit about the cigarette either. Who cares if she smokes, it’s her choice, i’m sure she knows the effects they have to ones health.
I think the look is fabulous. Usually i’m not a fan of denim minis, especially on women over 21, but, by teaming it with a conservative top half and with her confient smile she totally pulls off the look. Although, i wouldn’t put those boots with that outfit, would have kept them to black to team with the belt and the bag. She’s a beautiful woman.
Oh, and last week i bought this white button down shirt from Dolce and Gabbana and it was so fabulous i went back and bought 3 more. It’s such a great fit!
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a denim skirt as long as it’s not worn with anything too showy (cuz i’m not really sure if i’m allowed to use the word i wanna use) or anything abercrombie or hollister.
as for the cig–not everyone wants to live forever, some people eat burgers everyday and some smoke… get over it, it’s called free will
i love the confidence, it seeps thru, as for mini’s being for the under 18… not in my head, but i was raised a little more conservative… i feel like they are for the over 18 and she dons it like a champ!
