    I think the fact that her shoes are too big for her feet take away from this.A pity…..Or possibly im being OTT but all i can see here is the shoes are too big and are devoiding attention from what else is going on. :-(

    Ill fitting shoes, and the socks have got to go… Plus they are making her shoes slip forward even more than they would have naturally.

    Too bad, her outfit is killer.

    Love the combination of bright colors and how she tones it down with the camel coat. Love the glasses, are those Tom Ford? I too wear Tom Ford sunglasses as Rx glasses. The fact that the shoes seem big for her feet, who cares? she just loves them and she doesn't mind, why would you? I just love the outfit as a whole. I have been wearing socks with sandals since I was little and I still love them!

  67. Eryl

    September 27, 2010 at 12:03 pm

    Very taken with her sleeve/cuff treatment, and she reminds me of a Terry Frost painting which is a jolly good thing.

    I suspect the perceived shoe size problem is a trick of the light.

    September 27, 2010 at 12:11 pm

    hahah, oh, I couldn't stop by notice her heels… seems bid on her feet but again, that might be caused by "angle" or "shading" or just the design of that "stick out" stacked heels. ^^

    The whole ensemble is so professional runway look…like Jil Sander you just posted!! I wonder is that a shirt dress or what is paired w/ for her bottom half? Interesting……

    Gotta love that old-lady looking glasses…haha…

    Your recent posts are all so attractive, informative and inspiration!! Love it!!

    Lovely colours, but the shoes don't fit and the socks are desperate – even the most coltish legs are truncated by this look, and sweaty nylon inside open-toed sandals makes no sense whatsoever to me…

    Wonderful lady. The colors coming out make you curious as to what she looks like under the trench coat.

    So what's better here, socks, stockings or just the heels? I'm at a loss.

    Funny how you have to scroll down to see the shoes, and whether they make sense of the whole (or not).

    I've always loathed with a pink and purple passion those little see-through socks we called 'pop socks' but by some strange magic she manages to make them not only bearable but chic (hardly ever use that word) and they're like a little ping at the end of her outfit.

    It's hard to pull off socks with heels, but she does it with grace! Obviously, this look isn't for everyone, but I think that despite the clashing colors, the entire look works well together.

    I love this neutral mixed with a pop of bright colors. It's something that's really deviates the minimalistic trend we've been seeing lot, maybe a little too much.

    She looks like a B-movie scientist run amock! I don't generally like "funny" looks, but this has such a goofy, non-desperately-attention-seeking sense of humor that it works. (THough I think the socks would be more flattering in a slightly heavier material & slightly longer length; open-knit lace crews, perhaps?)
