    I dont understand why she choose cream colored shoes for this outfit, but I think I get everything else. It will be interesting to read female comments on whether the apron-like dress straps and the cami straps overwhelm the upper half of the look- I believe they do, but cannot imagine this dress worn in any other way, except for a total minimalist way. Love the red belt over navy and her fabric flower collar, is it like a lei? Jorge from W Palm Beach

      Love the nude colored shoes, and don’t see how you got any apron imagery. Adorable outfit. You don’t need to “get” outfits. You just need to see that they look good and express personal taste. Youre not supposed to see outfits that are exactly what YOU would put together, because she is not you.

    I love her originality, the layering of the cami, apron dress and necklace. The necklace reminds me of a bangle necklace Dries Van Noten has done for fall, in fact the whole look for me is kind of Dries goes minimalist. She looks charming and elegant.

    This look is a really nice take on classic with a twist. In regard to her shoes, well, let’s look at the options: Blue (too staid), Red (too ‘matchy’) White (let’s not go there). The cream is great – it gives her a casual, not trying look,(hard to do in heeels) whilst elongating her legs and lending her a retro vibe which compliments the quiky quality of the necklace. Well done.
    The only negative for me is her posture. With that super skinny frame, she hardly needs to try to appear smaller, by slouching into a pigeon-toed stance. Stand up – you look great!

    What’s with the pigeon-toed pose? I see that a lot is ads, is it supposed to be sexy?

    • Martine

      June 24, 2013 at 12:40 am

      Maybe its supposed to be how she likes to stand. I think a lot of people with long slender legs find that pose comfortable. Its certainly appealing.

    Love the slight playing dressing-up look she’s got. Bracelets are a bit cluttered, but it’s not a big deal.

    The top looks kind of messy — straighten it out and remove the flowers (which clutter it up) and a correctly-sized belt (one that doesn’t stick out like that) and I think you’d have something.

    It’s a cute piece. I like the navy dress (it reminds me of a jumper dress) and the floral necklace to match and the nude pumps (although, id prefer mary janes). It’s almost lolita-inspired, very cute! ^^

    I think she looks very fresh. The shoes elongate her legs – we don’t notice the shoes, they don’t detract from her at all. None of it does.

    I really don’t get the knock-kneed, pigeon-toed stance so popular these days. Good early childhood nutrition and care are nothing to be ashamed of! It’s kind of like making fun of people who weren’t so fortunate and insulting to the parents who made sure you didn’t actually have knock-knees and pigeon-toes!

    Then again, maybe she was tired of standing there in heels.

    wow, santa maria! i mean, she’s stunning. the lei is a very nice touch, especially since it’s made out of unorthodox flowers. love the blue on the dress. for some reason, the skinny belt doesn’t bother me, though i feel that it should.

    she’s lovely and her shoes are great however I think the belt the lei and the bracelets all together do in fact give her a bit of a cluttered feel with such a “light” look… not in a good contrasting way… pretty girl though.

    It’s easy to miss the gorgeous composition in this shot! Just look at the background…the trees and sky look like stained glass.

    And I love the closed umbrellas on the tables around her…she’s got that same look to her, what with the length of her dress and the belt.

    Other than a cami, should could wear a long sleeved t-shirt, but that might look a little odd. I’ve also seen girls wearing those tiny bandeau bras (tops?) under tanks that have this shape. It sometimes works.

    And I love her cream shoes.

    Unnecessary neck adornment. It looks like shower poufs cut up. Love the navy dress and belt but the singlet underneath meh…either a strapless top or singlet with narrower straps would have looked better. A nice silk rib or really sheer jersey.

    She almost looks like a waitress with those tables and chairs in the background, albeit, a charming and endearing one.

    I think her posture, facial expression and pigeon-toed stance goes with her outfit and background–I think it all helps create that innocent, shy and endearing quality. Her attitude won’t say “bashfully endearing” if she stood tall and proud with a big smile.

    And yes, nude heels help elongate legs–that’s actually a reason why many on-stage dancers opt for nude-colored shoes in performances.

    Good choice of shoes. Here’s my take on the pigeon-toed stances…a) Yes, they allude to gawky adolescents b) They can visually elongate limbs and add interest–see compositions where angles add interest to straight lines, and c) Often shows off footwear better.
