    She’s fun.. love the vintage looking purse..
    The print on the skirt is entertaining and her flip-flops are awesome.

    Is this Lucinda Chambers? Some serious & amazing head to toe Marni going on. I adore Marni, I adore this photograph.

    Who is this lady because I took a photo of her at a terrace before she entered the Dolce&Gabbana show in Milan?

    Great skirt! There is so much going on with this outfit but it seems to work for her.

    I like the easy look of the printed skirt and textured sweater..the bag is great, and love the bright watch. However, I wish she wore a nice flat or low heeled shoe instead of the beach sandals.

  23. Petra

    October 18, 2011 at 9:04 am

    LOVE her look! Great, elegant, tasteful, modern……just right!!!
    She’s my paragon of beauty now….

  24. Pip

    October 18, 2011 at 9:05 am

    I wouldn’t normally say this – heresy + almost not possible – but she is almost too cool for the Sartorialist!

  25. Siobhan

    October 18, 2011 at 9:07 am

    I like the outfit, the colours, it’s very eccentric! However, I’m not loving the sandals/shoes – they should be left at the poolside!

  26. Milena

    October 18, 2011 at 9:07 am

    I’m not a fan of all that pattern mixing


  27. Anna Louisa

    October 18, 2011 at 9:09 am

    Beautiful accessories…I love that ring and those sunglasses! And I’m not sure why so many older women automatically cut their hair short – her shoulder-length hair is so elegant.


  28. Nomadic D

    October 18, 2011 at 9:18 am

    She looks like an elegant but playful lady, but those shoes! They just cracked me up! They remind me of those adidas plastic sandals the swim team wore in highschool…


  29. Giada

    Surely this woman knows how to mix and match different patterns and tuxtures! Great!

    This is a great photo, though it looks like the seasons changed from summer at her feet to autumn by the time she chose a sweater! Still, great style!

    I so love it! Screams personality and style at the same time.

    Too bad about the shoes because the rest of her outfit is fabulous. I especially love the marled sweater with the patterned skirt. Perfect combination.

    A dazzling dame
    on top of her game.
    A triumphant mix of textures
    and contrasting colors.

    October 18, 2011 at 10:45 am

    Oh my. How can anyone not love this?

    The lady looks fabulous!!! Works the Marni prints perfectly, has green flashes of colour in her jewelry to accentuate the green in her skirt, holds a perforated bag I love and those super comfy and classy sandals.

    This is style my friends.

    Kisses from Greece!

  47. Mira

    October 18, 2011 at 10:47 am

    The flip flops totally ruin the outfit, which is not that great to begin with. I don’t care who she is and how famous she is, but this just doesn’t work.

  48. h

    October 18, 2011 at 10:49 am

    oh yes ! the patter on that skirt, the red watch and the subtle green the earrings…masterful !

  49. Lavinia V

    October 18, 2011 at 10:50 am

    Interesting photo capture, bag is my favourite! She is vintage addicted, i am sure about it, but i’am not mad about knitting match..

  50. Kate

    I want to hang out with her.

    Obviously, a lady to “makes” fashion is no slave to it, but makes her own style. Beautifully worked out.

    who makes those shoes?
    I have an older friend with bad feet who may like them.

    love love the outfit, the electrifying colors. the textures, the bag, her sunglasses, and just as i was thinking god i want to be her i saw her shoes. i dont care if its different, chic or whatever the hell i just dont like them whatsoever.

  56. Albanian

    October 18, 2011 at 11:47 am

    Now this is class and character, this is not about fashion this is about individualism, I envy her even though I’m a man!

    Lovely outfit but the shoes are not flattering to the leg. Very unfeminine.

    love her style its so personal.

    I love this so much I’m compelled to post a comment. What a fantastic, stylish yet classic look. Her confidence radiates! At 25, I’m not sure I ever look this good. J’adore.

    Great look – I would wear all of this in a second. Beautiful mix of patterns and color and I love the bright watch with it.

    love the look. she looks confident and comfortable in what she’s wearing. the patterns somehow work together.

    Love it. Love the colors, the textures, the glasses, the sandals, the bag. And I love that it’s not a genetically perfect young person. It’s a beautiful woman who’s old enough to know what she wants…and feels good in her skin. Nothing says sexy, like experience.

  79. Juanita

    October 18, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    This really and truly is somebody with a fabulous natural sense of style and, of course, common sense! All that tramping around for Fashion Week calls for flat/comfortable/rubber soled shoes …… and who would believe that flip flops could look so chic?! The orange watch is maybe the £9.99 version that I also have from Argos – either way it looks sensational!

  91. mhawf

    October 18, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    So cool! Why? Because it looks like she didn’t try, that’s what’s cool… there’s too many people out there looking like they solved a major math equation when they woke up and got dressed. That’s not cool because fashion isn’t about saving babies, its about covering your body and expressing yourself a bit while doing it.

  92. Tracey

    October 18, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    The bag is so perfect,can I have it when she’s finished with it ?

    Fabulous. More older women PLEASE to inspire and delight – she is magnificent!

  95. juanita

    October 18, 2011 at 5:39 pm

    She is so much younger looking in real life – not sure why but maybe it’s the dark glasses which make her look so much older. But, and a big but here – looking older makes her look all the more elegant – there’s something to ponder!

    She looks stylish and smart. Her outfit really is genius. Somehow you can tell that she does everything extremely well, so the well thought out outfit comes as no surprise. Those shoes are great! I could make sooo many wonderful looks with them…if I had them, which I don’t… Who makes them?

  100. Tracy

    October 18, 2011 at 6:48 pm

  101. fMorgaine

    October 18, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    I know I’m no fashion guru,
    but this doesn’t work for me…
    Each item on its own looks amazing,
    but thrown in ALL together (especially the flip flops),
    to me it just doesn’t seem neither stylish nor pretty.

  110. Nomi

    October 19, 2011 at 2:56 am

    Oh, the shoes definitely work with the skirt which somehow works with the sweater. All is well here.

  111. Annabella

    October 19, 2011 at 4:47 am

    I’m a 60 year old stylist and I got the job in my 50′s by compliments and referrals. I stay busy.

    Honestly Scott, I think age makes many people more stylish. From being around a while, many of us have learned how to show off our assets and how to minimize our flaws. We’ve learned the art of how to accessorize with items that create interest/fun. And lots of us embrace our natural looks, and still manage to turn a heads, like Lucinda. Also, if we’re not sure, we’re not afraid to seek help! This shot and that one of Marpessa, gave many of us some good ideas!

    Lucinda is fabulous and lovely head to toe. She’s confident and authentic, and knows what works for her. With her style sense, She could put together a fabulous modern outfit from a thrift store with her eyes closed.

    You rock, day in and day out, Scott. The best blog ever! But i don’t think I’m alone in wanting to see more of the 50+ stylish demographic, and we love to shop!

    These are the kind of post I love at the Sartorialist. The sheer power of style and elegance to bring out the beauty of people, age not being an impediment. The extreme achievement of her attire is that, in spite of not being “by the book” mixing, she manages to still look elegant and just [i] right [/i]. She’s not just following some code: she’s helping to create it.

  123. sunny

    October 19, 2011 at 5:13 pm

    funny…I loved the outfit even more WHEN I saw her shoes. A whimsical addition that to me shows her confidence and self-assurance.

    Plus..I have a weakness for mixing the seasons and have gone out in a sweater, skirt and summery shoes before. it’s just what I do.

    She’s beautiful.

  124. Kate D

    October 19, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    The sweater and skirt remarkably complement each other some how – I’m off to the store to find something just like it.

    I’d like her mojo when I’m her age … not sure if I’ll be combining patterns like this. Each item would look far better with a solid item next to it … I don’t like this particular combo.

    I just LOVE when you post pictures of old women! It’s so inspiring! I hope that, in many years from now, I’ll be just like them… :)

    This woman is Lucinda Chambers, style consultant to MARNI. Amazing style and she defines the “MARNI Mix”, The perfect hodge-podge of textures, prints and colours. Kudos to an amazing visionary!

    Wow, love the sweater and the silhouette. I want to look like his at her age, although I might change the accessories.
