LOVE the shoes and all the hardware on the purse. I bet the women will let us know if it is too much hard-core for one outfit, but my ignorant opinion is that it’s fabulously put together! Jorge from W Palm Beach
That’s amazing! I usually have a strong aversion to this type of overly trendy dress, but this particular woman looks completely angelic and fabulous. She’s probably exactly what was in mind when this style came into fashion.
I love her face and the lighting on it. Vaguely reminds me of Josephine Baker, probably enhanced by the feathers and “Flapper” aspect you mentioned. An adventurous approach that paid off. There’s a softness about it, even with the bold shoes and the big bag, that’s lovely
Oh yes! I’m loving this, particularly composition of her look – the horizontal lines on the sandals, vertical lines on the dress and then horizontal in the headpiece. Beautiful palette of colours works so well with her skin. Lovely understated outfit altogether and caught in a wonderful reflective mood by you. Well done!
the forever 21 comment got me. i was reading all the comments and thinking how has not one person mentioned how cheap this outfit looks? i thought i was crazy but now it all makes sense. even if it is not actually from forever 21 it certainly gives me that vibe. the whole outfit looks cheap and trendy in the worst possible way. however this photograph seems to place it in the best light possbile and she looks beautiful. what a beautiful girl in an unfortunate outfit.
Yes, the dress is from Forever21- I saw it there just a couple of moths ago- and the shoes are Jeffrey Campbell, which can be found at Urban Outfitters online right now. I love seeing people make the most of limited income. You could never tell, she looks beautiful.
I love this look and those gladiator sandals really makes the outfit pop. Her sandles are more along the Rock and Roll line of gladiator sandles versus romantic.
I can see the platnium haired editor at American Elle or Carrine wearing these sandals with a great leather motorcycle jacket. But the lady featured in the pic did an excellent job with the shoes, in giving them a softer look and appeal.
Is that feather in her hair from Charm School Design on Etsy? I picked up their card at a jazz festival on Gov. Island back in June and fell in love with their designs. So much so that I blogged about them! Overall, cute outfit!
