    If you hadn't already said those exact words, I would have immediately said how whimsical I thought this was!
    I love the colour and fbaric combinations.. The feathers just make it rather playful.Not too serious!
    And gorgeous boots..

    i love seeing the same people on different blogs, i get to see so many perspectives. you and 'jak&jil' share a lot of the same fashionable people. i create all these back stories in my mind. i love knowing that all of these fabulously chic people cross paths all the time, and that they love sharing their love for all things wearable.

    basically: seeing this woman on jak and kil i thought "i love how the feathers and cardigan lend a sense of femininity to her edgier black pallete and chunky shoes."
    on your blog i thought: "how amazingly simple and classic, with a fun feather detailing to give her that extraa something."

    it's all about perspective.

    regardless, everyone on the blogs i follow are impeccably refined in their wardrobe.

    In the first photo, I could not figure out what the fringe was – from a lovely scarf! She is very cute, has great legs, her shoes/boots are nice, great earrings. The background of the shutters, dress shop and yellow lines on the pavement is very nice also.

    Cute Carrie Bradshaw look-alike, except she's more real. Ah, to be young again and flashing the gams! I, too, really like the pockets and also the long sleeves as a contrast to all the leg exposure. She rocks her own style.

    I've seen skirts with these kinds of pockets, but never a lovely dress like this one! Something about it is classy yet nightlife-ish. I love it! Reminds me of the 20's for some reason.

    I love the shoes, and she is a pretty lady, not 20 anymore, really beautiful, but she doesn't look confident in that dress, like she is trying to pull down the hem, so I think the whole outfit would look much better with leggings, trousers or even with jeans.

    But its a great shot of a beautiful woman!

    2) colors colors colors… i dont know i like things to match and they just arent in this outfit.. i mean pink cardigan, navy blue dress, black shoes, and brown bag? maybe if her shoes were navy blue? i dont know she couldve made an attempt or something but i still love the cardigan over dress look

    i find it funny that people still react to things like 'bags and shoes not matching'. A black bag would have been too heavy for this outfit i find, but the black shoes just give her the right standing.

    Same for "blue and black dont match". I like the combination a lot, because it is a subtle way to loosen up the 'bat factor'. And black can look brownish or blueish or greenish, depending on the light and the texture. A good way to play for the less daring of us.
