    I avoid denim in the summer as much as I can…It's just too hot!

    Love the way her denim is very versatile for many different looks.
    A pair of brown sandals would be nice too.

    I don't really like the low waist and stuffed pockets, and I seem to never get used to boots with bare legs, so not my favorite, sorry! But I like the attitude of this girl :)

    I love denim in the summer and her look is perfect with the flat boots!

    Love her pose.

    This look is great! I love the braid and the bright nails. I also thinks she looks slightly like Crystal Renn.
    But…you couldn't pay me enough to wear leather boots like that on a hot day like today.

    Most denim dresses are terrible, but this one shows how shoes and jewelry can do a lot to make it more grown up.

    I love the boots with the denim shirt/dress.

  27. Davidikus

    July 6, 2010 at 11:08 am

    Denim is everywhere these days.

    I cannot say the look convinces me: the shirt/dress is built like one of those soft / unstructured bags, the pockets give the impression that she has two pairs of breast, one pair hanging incredibly low, like a 60+ mamma.

    The boots also make the silhouette extremely heavy. This young person is stunning, she has got great legs, and a body most women would die for (even if it would be slightly unproductive to die after getting a new body). The silhouette is not making the best use of her assets. Not at all. I may sound old fashioned but I think one should dress according to their body and keeping in fashion as much as possible within those constraints (rather than following fashion avidly, against your body).

    I find great inspiration in the background though: the mix of textures, colours; the atmosphere…

    Thanks for sharing.

    Denim in summer? Uggh. Temperatures in Florence must be much, much chillier than in the Northeastern US where I live.

    Frankly, I hope to live to see the day that the modern world gets over its fetishist fascination with denim.

    I like her braid here, how it's lose and formless at the top but comes together at the bottom just enough to accentuate her angular face.

    It's cute but I would never be brave enough to wear it without something underneath! Denim here in California by the beach is perfect…it's usually a bit cooler and at night actually gets cold.

    I love the way this dress shows off this woman's legs. However, I think that the pocket would be more attractive if placed below the waist.

    The warm weather cries for lighter footwear as a practical matter, but the boots are attractive.

    The blog owner states that a glitch on Blogger's part is not showing the correct number of comments. As of Tues at 10:45 am (July 6) the front page shows that there are 3 comments on this blog, whereas there are actually 47 comments posted (not counting the one I'm writing now). Anyway, the outfits shown are beautiful. But I had to comment on the photographer of the first – the way the purse is placed the model looks pregnant! (Or, maybe she is and they're trying to hide the fact with the handbag?)

    Denim dresses, if loose and short, can be comfortable when it is hot.

    Those shoes on the other hand, I can not believe to be anything but terribly hot and uncomfortable in the summer. The boots come out as trendy-pretentious and ruin what would be such a perfect look. Dressing against the weather to follow a trend is always a bit tacky.

    Great photo btw, wonderful composition and I love the colors of the crates and background.

    I love denim, especially when it's done differently, loose and easy. This dress is great, with the draw string at the hips, and the button up sleeve. I like bare legs in the summer, a slight tan, and the boots. Gives it a slightly tough look, with an otherwise girly outfit.

    I love lightweight denim! But I agree with David Ikus on this one; I don't think the fabric is used most effectively to show how well light denim fabric usually fits, flows and works with the body. I think the gathering is too weak and the split, too awkward.

    Killer nails, though!

    I just bought a lightweight denim dress from my local op-shop for a measily $10, handmade and trimmed with quilt-fabric binding.

    Photos up soon!

    Logically, I should hate this, since I generally dislike dropped & bloused waists, anything tunic-like, and short skirts. But I love her look! She just seems cool and confident. The excellent boots are probably what make it work–sandals would be obvious, flats twee, and heels… don't even want to think about it. The boots tone down the shortness of the skirt and neutralize the potential cutesiness of the waist.

    I love the dress, too bad about the overstuffed pockets a purse of some kind would have been better. But, the look is fabulous. I love the boots in summer! I have worn them with short dresses in summer (in my youth) countless times. Of course, I used to live in San Diego in a beach community so a pair of shortie boots was just fine. Hell, I used to wear Doc's and combat boots in the summer too. This young woman is beautiful, love the hair and the sultry look. Just grab a purse the next time:)

    I don't know what it is but I just can't bring myself to like this dress. I think it is wear that waistline/drawstring falls on her. It is distorting and I find it to be a bit off. I love her nails, but most of all I love the naturalness of her face. Such a beauty.

  116. Marisa

    July 15, 2010 at 12:24 pm

    obviously I have to write it differently: she is beautiful and wears a nice necklace, her nailpolish is interisting, but I still insist that her dress is as unflattering as it could be. Too short in a strange way and the waist too low. Denim in summer. Pockets in the wrong place. For my sensation her proportions are disturbed by the dress.
    I don't like it.
