    I wonder how much time does it take to look like this, or is it just grabbing whatever it is in your clothes closet and putting it on(with great intuition)?

    So sassy, yet very elegant…just what I love! The jacket is so major, and the sling backs with the fun hair gives this outfit a whole retro look. Absolutely stunning. If you have a chance, check out my blog!

    Love the way she’s using and playing with retro, not just replicating past looks. And, as always, reading material (printed, not pixilated) is a top accessory.

    I find her look rather harsh…’s a little dated….

    Very beautiful woman, great photo but frankly I feel she’s trying too hard. I believe there is something to be said for wanting to look great, although one should make it look effortless, almost accidental. mr. john.

    Oh my God, she’s just beautiful. Absolutely and stunningly beautiful.

    She reminds me a little of Dita Von Teese but with a rockabilly feel. It’s a look that once perfected looks amazing! Xx

    Love her look. It’s the red socks peeping through the shoes that does it for me!

    Amazing! Believe it or not, she reminds me, hair, complexion, make-up, of my Mom when she was young! I should send you a vintage photo of her…with the modern elements of the rockin’ cut-out oxfords & colorful necklace. She another of your amazing, “photo stories.” Well, done! I’m going to forward your link to my Mom to see if she concurs.

    I don’t understand the comments that say ‘effortless style’ when it is obviously a great effort to put together a look like this. The makeup alone! And then, the jewelry, the hair, the outfit. This probably took a good 2 hours to put together.

    We don’t think there is anything wrong with making an effort with your look… we think she looks fabulous, here at REVIVAL we did a 50′d photoshoot just the other day and it was definitely not effortless but it was ‘simply stunning…

  84. Cece

    December 5, 2011 at 10:46 am

    I love all of the pieces she’s wearing…but together, and I think this happens often when someone goes vintage, it looks theatrical, and not very original.

    And the touched of bright red across her outfit, beautiful!

    December 5, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    Very cool mixture of texture and color, however, I would go with a different type of shoe, something last “stand-out-ish,” otherwise there is too much going on. The contract of the earrings and necklace is awesome enough, so why do too much to distract from that?


    December 5, 2011 at 6:01 pm

    Simply beautiful!!!!

    If I knew how to do such sophisticated hair style I would try it. But it looks very complex. Im not sure how to even explain it at a hair salon. Any ideas?

    There’s a lot going on in her outfit. It’s not for me, and a lot of people couldn’t pull that off. It looks great on her, though. To have the confidence and eye to put that all together…wow!

    It’s the little green earrings that tell the tale. This woman knows when enough red is enough.

    I’m wondering if the bangs are a hairpiece, not that it matters.
