those shooooes! i love it!

Mom jeans. Ahem. Naturally, this goddess looks fabulous in them. The rest of us would look ridiculously unchic. All of the other proportions of her outfit are quite nice, though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:30 PM) : 

her hair is my favourite aspect of the photo. look at how she died it blonde but let it go brown again. reminds me of debbie harry

Beautiful earthy colours

wonderful cape ;)

i love how the colours are unpredictable, yet work so harmoniously. great shot.

a brown paper envelope - the new accessory. can see why some bags are called envelope bags now!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:36 PM) : 

Clearly a beautiful woman! And I love most of the outfit. However, I am not so keen on the oversized stonewashed mom-jeans that were most likely the cost of cheap car.


Blogger Editor said ... (1:39 PM) : 

thats hot. love the colors.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:41 PM) : 

Who is this woman? I have seen her a lot of times and every time she amazes me, but I can't look her up..can someone help me?

This one is also amazing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:44 PM) : 

A beautiful mix of tans -- that cropped top thing is very eye-catching, and the belt is the perfect contrast. Surely she has many pairs of pants that would have made a better choice, though. I've never liked it when the blue in your jeans is the brightest color in an outfit. Women tend to think jeans look playful and chic, but in this context they just look cheap.

I'm sure they're not, which makes it doubly unfortunate.


Anonymous Mariona said ... (1:48 PM) : 

the attitude is always what counts ... one can perceive at her style, amuaa


Blogger A. said ... (1:48 PM) : 

I love the color scheme! I really want shoes like that, too..


Blogger Shawn said ... (1:48 PM) : 

luv.. the earthy tones and that splash of green mimics the early peak a boo of spring here in Oregon.. love the belt!


Blogger Jacqueline said ... (1:49 PM) : 

Great photo! I love her natural pose and the layering she did on top is impeccable. She made those jeans look cool by pairing them with some awesome booties. The touch of green the belt adds - Genius. xo


Blogger Valentina_s said ... (1:52 PM) : 

I love this look!


Anonymous princess glee said ... (1:52 PM) : 

I was hoping no one would pay attention to acid washed jeans and they'd just go away. Judging from the fit of the long rise and the leg shape, these jeans are left-overs from acid wash's first incarnation. IMHO yuck, modern jeans look and fit so much nicer.


Blogger Just Another Blogger said ... (1:54 PM) : 

Holy cow... Can anyone ID the coat? Or the boots?? Or the PAPER BAG?! Ok, maybe that's a bit far, but, you know, WOWEY!

Yes to the belt (love) and shoes (like), urgh to the rest particularly the poorly done top layering.

love her shoes and the jeans...its high time we move on from skinny jeans


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:15 PM) : 

Ugh. High waisted, too short, acid washed jeans??? We used to make fun of people wearing those back in the day.

Nice coat and boots though!

Great colors, very cool coat .
Simply beautiful .

Nice cut and fade on those jeans...great pulled together look!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:31 PM) : 

Burda Moden circa 1994. Nostalgic and dated, which may not always be bad. Classic? I hope not.


Blogger amalie said ... (3:36 PM) : 

i love this, that brownish color with those blue jeans = perfeeecct


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:43 PM) : 

I really dislike these jeans. I just imagine how much more polished this look would be with a pair of nice cropped trousers perhaps even in another earthy colour like eggplant. I do like the innovative way of wearing a crop top though, its much more contemporary than an exposed midriff.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:43 PM) : 

Why are people hating on the jeans?
She ROCKS them!!!!!


Blogger Charles said ... (3:44 PM) : 

Perhaps the pose is a bit more forced than your usual subject, however I still really enjoy how much the camel and denim stand out against the background.

it's an strange combination but beautiful at the same time!

Stunning, casual and chic. Plus a very easy outfit to replicate with vintage!

you have to have a lot of balls to wear those jeans - I am not be a fan of them per se but I love that she did something unexpected. And the tones of camel are beautiful.


Blogger Leslie in Adams Morgan said ... (4:43 PM) : 

I am thinking maybe they are man's jeans rather than mom jeans?


Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (4:52 PM) : 

Oh la la, maybe I do should look where I've hidden my early 90s jeans? Never thought I would wear them again, but seeing this...


Blogger Lin said ... (4:58 PM) : 

Love love LOVE the caramels! All the different shades layered together creates such a richness and depth that the pieces couldn't do alone. Absolutely lovely.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:03 PM) : 

okay what are 'mom' jeans? i think only gen-z z z z would like this look, all i can see is either 'Burda Moden circa 1994' (great comment anonymous) or the hideous acid wash fad that was the rage with mostly unstylish ppl back in the 90's (ouch!). the belt and the envelope are the only sartorial elements of this photo. sorry - she clearly has style, but this ensemble doesnt do it for me.


Blogger Kristina said ... (5:07 PM) : 

None of these items would be doable or acceptable on anyone except a pretty/skinny gal like her. Except for the boots, I'd have to say "nay" to this outfit.

However... I'm really digging the hair, especially after checking out Garance's examples yesterday.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:23 PM) : 

I like the coat and the overall color scheme. Also her confident stride.
Not crazy about the midriff top layer nor the jeans, nor even the booties, which look a little too much like something my 79-year-old mother-in-law would wear with a dress.
What gets me is her hair. The message I get is over-dyed, damaged ends, which I can't accept as chic. Debra Harry did it on purpose, peroxide-blonde with brunette roots. This just looks like growing out a dye job that was a few tones too far.
Also, I don't think it's terribly classy to schlep a bunch of stuff in one's arms/hands. Are totes or other large bags out of the question these days?

This looks very Sex and the City - like. The colors (esp. the natural pink), tucked in shirt and jeans with heels. It looks like a used look, but I think I like it.

I don't know anything about this woman, but I instantly thought "the real Carrie Bradshaw". Dunno why...

Those looks like short man jeans. Not a fan.

Whoever is responsible for the return of "mom jeans" deserves a life sentence in fashion prison.

Awesome boots and cool jeans!
Great photo as always!

Pure LOVE!
This pic is the best in the past couple of months. Congratulations!!

wow, i love how this woman actually wore something underneath her midriff shirt... good for her!!! and i love the neutral palette!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:01 PM) : 

poor girl, so many horrible bad styles of years past. she's pretty but even that can't balance all the wrongness of the cropped shirt, the high waisted jean and the fit.


Blogger Gary MAEL said ... (7:06 PM) : 

Great photo about movement and graphism / rythm. And... I love the whole outfit : the jeans +++ the shoes, the coat, the different layers, the hair, the brown paper package... everything. And what's more, it realy looks confortable. This is inspiring.

Fantastic jeans, I really like the return of light coloured / very washed jeans!


Blogger kukla said ... (8:01 PM) : 

I want to like this but I don't. I do not feel the organic style, I feel it is too pushed. The woman is attractive.


Blogger Sara in America said ... (8:54 PM) : 

just...horrible! i don't like the proportions on this at all.
the boots are great though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:55 PM) : 

The Salvation Army belt and mom jeans... Yet she's still beautiful. Don't try this at home.


Blogger Anna said ... (9:12 PM) : 

she has a great attitude and wears the clothes well...but other than the colors, not a fan this time!


Anonymous Gamineisme said ... (9:17 PM) : 

Gads, those jeans. I can't find an adoring thing to say about them; however, I will say that her confident composure pulls the whole look off. She could probably rock a garbage bag.


Blogger Lisa Petrarca said ... (9:28 PM) : 

High rise jeans making a comeback?

They look okay from the front, but we all know what they do to a woman's backside (flat long butts are NOT attractive).


Blogger -T. said ... (9:36 PM) : 

SO carrie bradshaw.


Blogger CW said ... (9:41 PM) : 

The layering is what is going on here but the green belt is what makes the look work.


Blogger Soviétique said ... (10:15 PM) : 

This is one of those outfits where I don't understand how someone can pull of put she DID! :D


Blogger Makiko said ... (10:42 PM) : 

imagine doing your errands wearing this. this outfit isn't predictable, but is so very wearable and perfect for what she seems to be doing- out and about in the city. fashion is the best when it reflects your sense of place and mood within the world at one moment in time. this captures that. fabulous


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:01 PM) : 

Ummm not sure.. is it bogan chic (aussie term).. with cut off tee and the jeans.. she has the walk and a great look for the camera but the jeans.. no, the boots.. no.. coat is nice .. but to me it just reminds me of too many things wrong about the late 80's and early 90's.. you have to be here though...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:07 PM) : 

I really love your page and think you do a great job... Still, don't you think all these women you show have very similar looks? I mean, the boots, "that kind" of jeans / trousers / hat / scarf / bag / vintage-looking earrings / belt and so on. Or is it just me?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:41 PM) : 

Stylish and relaxed. I like this. Of course, her figure helps ...

Am I the only one who sees a little Sarah Jessica Parker in her?


Blogger Lady Di said ... (12:14 AM) : 

Oh please, stop fawning over this everybody. This outfit is aggressively, deliberately ugly. Maybe it's provocative but it's not chic and it's certainly not attractive.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:29 AM) : 

Gabrielle Reece?

That, more than the outfit, makes me feel oh so retro-90s.

Scott! There have been so many occasions where I wish you could post what your muses are wearing and by who. I know..I know they are probably a la vintage but I would really love it if you would just tell me where her shoes are from! Could be Chloe? Such an easy piecy look!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:36 AM) : 

Gorgeous woman, great tans, but those pants offend me on a very deep level. Why do beautiful women do this? At least she did not pair them with a Forenza oversized sweatshirt.


Blogger MODA CADISI said ... (3:22 AM) : 

I think the jeans are ruining the look!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:52 AM) : 

Apparently the fashion gods are angry... they don't think we've done enough penance for wearing mommy-fit acid wash the first time around. They want us to atone by wearing it again, or at least being forced to look at it, now that we know better. (Love the rest of the outfit, though.)


Anonymous Cecilia said ... (4:13 AM) :

Blogger Lou said ... (5:03 AM) : 

I love the irony of this. Reversing the meaning of 'Burda moden 1994' and Mom Jeans/hillbilly acid wash. This is far from tame and lame, far from mumsy, cheap and unhip. She's experimenting with styles, periods, colors, shapes. She is pushing it, but well knows what she's doing. She is an insider, I'm sure. I adore the playful people I encounter here; reason I come back for more, each day. They dare, they take risks (always intelligently), but above all they play. Hence, they're sexy. And inspirational.


Blogger Maria said ... (5:29 AM) : 

Lovely layering!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:36 AM) : 

She looks great, but at the same time I think she's working the trends a bit too hard. Acid wash jeans: check; new neutrals: check; cropped top: check. I think it's more interesting to see looks that reflect the wearer's personal style, or their own take on current fashion.

Blogger Kathleen said ... (8:57 AM) : 

What is all this "smack talk" about the Soccer Mom jeans? I say, so what! This woman will look fantastic in any style of jeans she decides to wear. I do agree with one of the comments about her jeans being the brightest part of her outfit. I ordered a pair of straight leg jeans online and sent them back just last week. Reason? They were such a bright blue for "soft vintage wash". As for this woman's outfit, it is fantastic. I love the booties, the casual way she wears her coat, and the layered look of her tops. The green belt is a wonderful foil for the entire look. Stop twisting the knife everyone, maybe you're all a little jealous and would like to look this great on what appears to be a very casual running errands kind of day.


Blogger Marie-Gabrielle said ... (9:01 AM) : 

It is funny the way you called your pictures "green belt" for that one, so we can know what did you notice on her. Personally I noticed the crafted envelope , you the belt !
fantastic !

"She could probably rock a garbage bag"... Indeed! A vision in caramel. Individually, I would pass by any of the items she's wearing, but together she makes them look wonderful - and surely that's the essence of real style? The layering of neutral colours and the '80's style denim is very "now", but she doesn't look like a slave to fashion. Impressive.

Okay, leaving out my catty comment of last. I love her outfit from head to toe. The combination of colors she has chosen are remarkable and I love her coat. I don't care what anybody says, the jeans are just fine! The green belt and booties are to die for. Lovely swaggering walk, great hair. She is wonderful!

i love her stride, and the laid back "hair in the wind" look. Great capture.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:18 AM) : 

there's something rather erotic about how the longer shirt at first doesn't register, that you think it's her stomach, and do a double take. coupled with the cropped lighter shirt, it seems very deliberate, very eye catching, yet far more subtle than overt cleavage or a low cut top would be.


Blogger OaniBanani said ... (8:59 AM) : 

the boots are viktor&rolf, either fall-winter 2008 or earlier, i got them from barnies a couple of years ago i think!
