    working the contrast! Lace is always a great way of adding depth to an outfit. What a great silhouette!

    Leather&Lace… Sounds like those blog names but looks very good indeed…

      I agree! Where’s my glass of bubbly? Forget the iPhone, let’s dish!

    reminds me of a Stevie Nicks song- the lady in the picture looks great wearing it

    look at the people in the windows!
    what a great picture!

    I love the lace & leather combo, her nails, her expression, the glass of bubbly, and the two men off in the distance enjoying the view!

    Black leather and ivory lace – what’s not to love here!

    Leather and lace; if done right a very powerful combination!

    LOVE this leather jacket! Great shot!

    I love how the two people on the right backround make this seem like the model is on display at a gallery. lovely shot.

    Love this look! I always appreciate the pairing of something feminine with something a bit tough-looking. She looks great!

    Nice pic like always and I like her style. Have a great day.

    Gorgeous photo. I love the way her pose of having the hand under her chin is mirrored by the people in the window to our right. I love how she wears no make up, but the red nail polish gives her some femme fatale oomph. Everything here is beautiful. I also like the soft rounded look of her shoes.

  24. Siobhan

    November 25, 2012 at 11:00 am

    Very lovely look, mixing the lace with leather. However, so season inappropriate! It’s *freezing* here and raining and she must be so cold!

    • Martine

      November 25, 2012 at 12:44 pm

      You can it isn’t cold. She is comfortable, and is drinking outside. All of the windows in the building in back have their windows wide open and are leaning outside, and the people in them are wearing short sleeved t shirts.

    The garbage can is even super cool. All modern and sleek alongside the ancient looking railing. I am very much enjoying this whole thing.

  26. Simbarashe

    November 25, 2012 at 11:21 am

    Interesting combination. If I’d seen this on the street I’d have thought that she was either in a hurry or hadn’t thought her choice through. You’d shed a new light on this combo for me and it’s something to think about.

  27. Rachelle

    November 25, 2012 at 11:23 am

    I love mixing leather with more feminine fabric. great pic!

  28. Drew

    November 25, 2012 at 11:34 am

    Love the ensemble…daytime chic!

    Her sartorial sensibility seems almost rooted in next season, angular and weighty monochromes contrasted with pastel feather-lightness.

    London’s got it down! =]

    This looks perfect to me. I love the nude shoes also, the bag, the bubblying glass she’s having. Is that champagne? This look surely deserves celebration

    Doesn’t really work for me. Those shades look great though!

    What a beautiful shot just for the figures in the windows that have the same position as the central character.

  46. Laura

    November 25, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    This is one of the photos which identify me the most! I´ve got the same glasses and I love them! Her style is pretty much like mine: sweet, smily but rocker!! Lovely pic!


    November 25, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    Amazing picture! Love that you captured a moment where three people are holding their head!

    Love this – so cute how the two people in the window are looking at her and she basically has the same pose as them too.

    Leather, lace and bubbly : great combination for a sunny day, plus all the pretty admirers in the background !

    Terrific look! And it was lovely to meet you this afternoon at Parnassus Books, Mr Schuman. Thanks for taking a few minutes to talk about your philosophy re: the discussion forum. Your thoughtful approach is, as I said, much appreciated!

    The commenters here are perhaps too young to remember “Abracadabra,” by The Steve Miller Band in 1982.

    I feel the magic in your caress
    I feel magic when I touch your dress
    Silk and satin, leather and lace
    Black panties with an angel’s face

    And I do want to reach out and grab her.

  57. Sylvia S

    November 25, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    It looks that she is enjoying the moment with go music, a drink and beautiful day.
    What else can you ask for.

    A great capture from the 1970′s retro 50′s look like we experienced from Grease and Sha Na Na. A timeless look that still has teeth.

      You forced me to comment twice, but I have to praise your Grease and Sha Na Na references.

    two items of clothing at opposite ends of the spectrum, not so sure they work together.
