    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

    The color of the feathers fit perfect with color & style of her shoes. My, that's marvellous!

    What a gorgeous shot! Do people really walk around looking this good? I’m going to make more of an effort today…

    theat’s what i call a clean look:)she has that thing in her hair which brings something bold to the whole outfit…what i love the most are those romanic sandals with that golden-metallic look:)

    I love her look. This is an ensemble I would wear. I like the way her accessories tie-in together. Fun and delightful!

    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

    Those are lovely shoes… also whatever she’s wearing on her hair complements the look vey well.

    that is one of my headpieces!!

    so exciting to spot it “in the wild”…and looking so fab.

    Did you take this before or after Labor Day?

    And what is your opinion about observing the rule of white only to be worn between Easter and Labor Day??

    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!

    I love it. I love that the hair complements the dress so well. The whole look is fun and fresh in a throwback sort of way.

    fashion wise it doesn’t appeal much to me
    i think its a tad shabby

    I saw headpieces just like this only a couple days ago – absolutely beautiful to wear! A bit on the pricey side though.
    The shoes are divine

    I am so into feathers right now! (They were everywhere at Galeries Laffayette)
    I just got a great cuff at and I’m thinking about a headpiece or a head band too!

    Love this look!!!

    I love the look but I have to say it is a little too youthful on her for my taste. Although she clearly has a beautiful lithe body (those legs!), that bubble dress rarely flatters anyone over 20.

    she is simply beautiful. I love the way she is studying what she's holding; & the way the sun is hitting her. she could easily be in a vintage photograph or a vermeer painting.

    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!
