    The red and green are really lovely but what gets me is the gray and green. Lovely combination and the fit on everything is perfect. As for the brooch, anyone who would look at that and judge her less for having brooch from topshop from two years ago is far from a fashion setter and of no importance.

    The simplicity of her black pants and grey top emphasise the luxurious fabric and colour of her jacket. I love her tiny blue clutch tonally matches. Her (amazing!) loose hair and the spectacles prevent her looking too dramatic. Great post, Sart.
    May I add how happy I am that today is the beginning of a wonderful new era of hope and that America has a new First Lady who is beautiful, elegant, modern and supremely stylish, yet is clearly so much more than her clothes?

    yet, there is something about the pin that throws the look off. i would prefer the outfit’s simplicity without the brooch. or with a vintage gold brooch.

    This photo is absolutely stunning, extremely well done as usual, something out of a fairy tale. Her jacket looks so luscious and her hair my goodness! Beautiful skin, lovely glasses, very honest and humble.

    To “The Fashion Setter” that was straight up the dumbest comment I’ve seen here yet. I would be ashamed of myself if I judged someone’s pin like that, as if it matters where it’s from or how old. You know nothing about this girl or her choice in clothing and accessories and seemingly nothing about style either from that comment alone. I normally check out comment’s blogs but rest assured you will receive no traffic from me.

    Beautiful…it reminds me of a friends wedding. She had a naturally redder shade of hair, and worked for a fashion house at the time. They made her a green velvet jacket with gold embroidery, worn over a softly drapped cream dress…that was over thirty years ago.

    I love your photos – the fact that its true beauty, not just model perfection, and true individual style, not slavish fashion-following – nothing else on the web like it :)

    I’ve never been a fan of the color green, but everytime I see pictures like this it reminds me that I gotta wear more green, since it is so beautiful together with my haircolor. yes, I got the same color as the girl in the pic, just that hers is a bit more faded than mine.
    I gotta wear green! *makes an mental-note*

    theres something very attractive, albeit the slighly off centre geek-like look of this. the orange and deep velvet emerald with the pear accent is just perfecto:))

    I her hair, and when paired with the green velvet it reminds me of young innocent irish dancers.

    She reminds me of Yves Saint Laurent. the colour of her hair on the velvet green blazer… very powerful!

    Don’t you just want to talk all about it? She knows – at one level -
    how grand she is. When she learns other levels as well, oh! my goodness!

    I’ve thought green velvet might look like a billiard table, but this jacket is just stunning!
