On the Street….Draped Pocket, NYC

I love the whimsy of her look, but when she put her hands in the ingenious draped pockets of her dress she really won me over.

    She is super cute! I love her mix of styles. Casual, fancy, with a little rock and roll.

    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..

    the shoes really work perfectly with the that dress – i imagine that was hard to pair.

    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.

    I think there should be a law that everything has to have pockets! Love this look and how she just threw on the cute cardi over such a statement dress!

    Oh — Love it. A perfect mix of kind of summer but almost fall. The feather details won me over. Great outfit.

    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.

    very nice: easy, sexy, just a tad sophisticated, care-free and casual all at the same time.
    yes, the pockets are just right! just dont put your keys in them….i know i ve got pockets like them…
    still, fashion is not always about practicality:)

    That's a fun way to play on the bubble hem into pockets. Surprise pockets instantly make me love the garment!

    Love the juxtaposed textures, colours, nonchalantly placed hands in pockets and the feathers! The navy against baby pink is stunning too! Such a playful, fun & beautifully-put-together outfit!

    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.

    You, Jak, and Jil all seem to be at the same places!

    I love the first shot of this… The pockets really are a nice detail. I really dislike the cut of the sweater, though!

    hate to be a naysayer here, but without pants or a skirt, this look is half-baked.

    Her legs are lovely, but … get dressed, for goodness sake …

    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!

    i have those boots :D
    1) she should have worn her hair differently though..
    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

    pockets make the outfit! skirts should all have them, dresses to infact. and I can't tell whether the feathers are part of the dress or a scarf but I know I like them, would be quite figure flattering to the flat chested amoung us

    The boa and fluffy sweater do go well together as textures.

    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.
