    That is an incredibly awesome coat. I love she can make something so… old look so rebellious. :D

    I love her hair! It reminds me of that old school Pepsi commercial where the woman walks into a barber shop and gets her hair chopped off into a short bob before enjoying an ice cold Pepsi.

    I wonder what she feels like, what she does in life… What does she want to express with this outfit? To me it looks very strange (not in a bad way, – just a surprised and wondering kind of way…). It’s irritating and provoking. Very courageous :)

    lovely style, lovely Myf!
    but i think a ponytale would be fitter for that style

    :O she’s got the hair style I’m currently sporting, I call it the shark fin. Her outfit is very refined; you can feel her signature scribbled all over it, because I’m she, and she alone can pull this look off. Her watch is the only thing that seems out of place, yet it’s not something you would realise, until someone took a photo of her. Great post!

    I wonder how representative the australian shots are…’cause if a good number of people are so cool, it would be worthwhile to go spend some time in Sydney… I agree, the buttoned-up shirt creates a good balance with the very casual -rest. posted from Chicago…city in search of more style.

    the shorts are my favorite they complete that outfit for me.

    amazing suede detailing on the coat as well.

    love the whole look!

    A very charming personal look.

    Don’t try this at home kids — it’s a look you can’t just wear you’ve got to BE.

    If I were to read a description of the outfit I don’t think it would translate but seeing this girl (model?) with my own eyes I’m completely disarmed.

    Love it.

    That coat is completely to die for. i’m intrigued by the fabric i’d love to touch it! I agree with
    kagitsune 9.44am, she’s wearing a floral print and some wonderful shorts (vintage underwear?)and makes it look so edgy, a bit subversive. A female counterpart to Adam Ant in his early eighties heyday! Perfect backdrop too.

    That is one outrageous look. Crazy bloomers and striped socks! And finally, some buttons.

    What I find striking about this series of photos is how very different the light is. I have wondered at times whether you were using a different camera, but ultimately realized it was truly just the light. This seems to affect people’s color pallets. Though the looks are often parallel to what we might see in other places, the color sense does seem slightly different. I’m wondering if you have picked up on this?

    Yes, she’s a beautiful girl and no doubt she could wear anything and look amazing. Well, almost…, maybe I’m the only one here but I think the outfit would look that much more amazing with one or two more contemporary elements (other than her hair) to contrast the overall vintage feel. A different top and a really striking bold piece of jewelery would highlight the coat even more- but this is just my opinion :)

    So…um…Scott, there are a lot of pictures of Sydney siders but very few Melbournians to be seen……is this because you saved them all for your Saba campaign? Or will we see some on the blog soon? The suspense is killing me!

    I enjoy the shorts she has but I’m undecided as to whether I like them with this outfit. Her skin is beautiful, though and she can clearly put together an outfit but I’m not sure about the watch…

    Either way, I love the Docs I think they make this outfit. I’ve been looking for a good second-hand pair so that I don’t have to break them in!

    So are you saying that models can’t have they’re own style.. You’d prefer them all to walk around wearing jeans and white tshirts? Thats the most ridiculous thing ive ever read on a fashion blog. I love the fact that she does have a sense of personal style and isnt just relying on her physical appearance.

    IT'S NOT A VINTAGE COAT!! I can't remember who makes it, but I saw it in an Australian magazine very recently. It's chic, but definitely not vintage.
