    You're just bound on making me the happiest reader, aren't you? {:D
    Love the shoes! What I love most? Their comfort & simplicity!

    I think that the orthopedic issues that come along with ridiculously high heels should never be in fashion {;)

    Thanks for this lovely post Scott!

    although next time i rock a look like this, i'd like to be standing against a brightly colored wall as well, to give my outfit maximum chic effect ;)

    I think "Cheap" because that blazer is Zara's? The one made with jersey fabric… It;s a nice piece..

    I love this picture, the colours, her pose, her style, her smile, everything. Great composition. I don't get why ppl get so upset about the cigarettes all the time, ok, everyone knows that is not good for the health to smoke, but a lot of people do anyway, and if she smokes in the picture, so what?

    I almost never comment but I feel like saying to Michelle (first commenter)….yep. 'Tis true. I've a friend who dresses similarly, has lovely laugh. Alas, she is overweight right now & good grooming or not, she is mocked behind her back. It pisses me off no end.

    Nothing against the laughing lady against the yellow wall (except so sick of the cigs…I have to put up with it when in Italy but ugh. Talk about so-not-chic).

    finally sart, you are going back to what you used to be. i almost gave up on you. for the time being, no more body con, studded high heels fashionistas..have you noticed how many more people are commenting on your pages?! we can see body con etc on topshop website/vogue etc etc but true originally from the street, you can't beat. and that for me is what you are about.

    I am surprised this outfit was met with so much enjoyment. The fit isn't doing anything for me. The pointy shoulders on the blazer bother me like crazy, the seat/crotch of the pants is super low, making a stance like this make her legs look twice as skinny based on how the fabric drapes. Which is really not flattering in my opinion. Then to boot, the chucks. They make it look like she's 'trying'.

    that zara blazer… just 59,90 euros here in Spain! (probably outside like 20 euros more, but who cares!)

    The shoes are a nice touch. It's good to see comfortable shoes after all the horrible high heels I've seen on models lately. I know, being able to walk in those things is a skill every model is supposed to have, that's what they make the big bucks. But I much prefer something real, like this picture. If you ask me, models are overpaid, most real women are underpaid.
