This dress is all about the stitched-in collar detail

    Very retro cute, that dress. Did she say if it was vintage?

    Love her, the dress and the bag, but absolutely despise the shoes with this outfit.

    Definitely cute! I think the big white buttons really make the dress fun and playful.

    I have a few op-shop dresses like this but feel my height and proportions just make them look clunky on me. She looks great, though – her proportions are perfect for such a cutesy outfit! With my – significantly broader – proportions, I think a cutesy blouse can work, but it needs to be “grounded”, as it were, with black trousers or jeans. Otherwise it looks a little Alice in Wonderland after she drinks the potion and grows incredibly large…

    i have noticed lately that the pics of men show predominantly classic, timeless, ageless, elegant looks an hey stil manage to look fresh, not stodgy — but the women look faddy, trendy, costumey. does this mean there are no feminine versions on the street of the mens’ classic seersucker suits and fresh contmeporay classic outfits? only the latest mui mui or droopy vintage? please prove me worng!

    if women were wearing a femme version of classics and still looking good I would shoot it but they simply are not. at least not as much as people outside the cit might think.

    if you can find those women and shoot them please prove me wrong.

    Actually I know I have shoot plenty of those ladies(especially outside RL’s office) but they don’t come around very often – check the archives a little more closely

    “Classic” for women = “was trendy last year”

    sorry to dissapoint you, mates

    What is considered classic greatly depends on whom you are asking. In a colorful place (like NYC), the answer can be rather varied, even surprising…

    The collar, the scrunched sleeves and those BUTTONS. For me its all about those BUTTONS!!! I didn’t even see the shoes for those BUTTONS.

    I LOVE little girl style dresses. It blows so badly that with my bleedin’ huge gazongas I can’t carry it off anymore.
    I look like some twelve year old who sprung a set before her parents noticed enough to buy her new clothes.
    That’s just NOT a good look…and it sucked when I was twelve too.

    If I could find “classic, timeless, ageless, elegant” clothes in a petite size I would be more than happy to wear them!
