I love the way she plays with different textures and prints. Usually I would say that there is a lot going on but she pulls it off.



Blogger Caroline said ... (9:53 AM) : 

i need a little sparkley cardigan like that!


Blogger Butterball said ... (10:19 AM) : 

Teen Vogue!


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (10:20 AM) : 

Cute look!


Blogger Olviya said ... (10:24 AM) : 

interesting combination - leoprints+sportstyle... cute new-york-tokio style!


Blogger norawoah said ... (10:43 AM) : 

There is so much going on but she's just having so much fun. I'm loving on that sparkling vest.


Blogger Dreamer said ... (11:28 AM) : 

The best, the bag, can anyone say me where did she buy it??


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (11:39 AM) : 

I think the look is pleasant to most of us as she follows proportions that Chanel has been using for some time now, even if apparently none of her pieces are by them. The slim belt, the short skirt/shorts, the cardigan and sleeveless shirt, and the purse, obviously. I think this is a look based on proportions, and that's what makes it a winner.

i worked for Aya at NYLON and she always looked A-MAZING. effortless, kooky-chic.


Blogger Linda said ... (11:54 AM) : 

Bit chilly for this time of the year


Blogger AM said ... (11:58 AM) : 

I love Aya so much. She always looks great, I think, because she always looks happy and energetic.

my sort of style, very limi feu!


Blogger K'arhol said ... (12:13 PM) : 

sequins are evrywhere !!!
she looks great !


Blogger Stephanie Clayton said ... (12:16 PM) : 

Lots going on with this look...maybe a bit too much. I'd love to own that gray cardigan, though!


Blogger TEXTSTYLES said ... (12:17 PM) : 

gorgeous ensemble
that only she can rock
leopard print
canvas bag

and she makes it work


Blogger Dominica said ... (12:27 PM) : 

Great outfit !
Love her shorts - and adore her top-vest...if there's one thing I like less - it's her bag...


Blogger The Spicers said ... (12:56 PM) : 

She wears it well!
I love the Alexander Wang (I think) shorts.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:32 PM) : 

Not feeling the thigh-high school girl socks on woman her age.


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

What struck me most is that this looks like an outfit one might see on a runway and think, "Oh if only someone had the gutso to wear this in everyday life!" And here this beautiful woman has gone and done it.

I didn't notice that the shorts were leopard print until I did a close up. What a great surprise; I love them!

I really like that she really seems to have individually selected each and every piece. Not only that, but the shirt, vest, shorts, bag, belt, necklace, socks each stand out in their own right and aren't part of the standard, matchy-matchy outfits that you see people wear once a week, every week (you know, like the man that wears the same black pants with the same blue button-down every. single. Monday.). Basically, I love this because you will never see this outfit pre-put-together for you on a mannequin. There was clearly some thought behind this.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:16 PM) : 

Not for me, but on her it's funkyfreshadorable!


Blogger Allen - East Hampton said ... (2:24 PM) : 

She clearly enjoys getting dressed in the morning...and it's a joy to see someone looking like this.


Blogger Kate said ... (3:19 PM) : 

Cute! Not every one can pull of this look and seem so comfortable in their individuality, so I applaud her for that. Personally, I almost feel like she's trying too hard. There's too much going on, I'm not crazy about it.


Blogger whyioughtta said ... (3:52 PM) : 

Note to self: must find sparkly literally goes with anything.


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (3:57 PM) : 

She's got chutzpah! Too cute!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:31 PM) : 

cute sunglasses.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:20 PM) : 


well, she seems to be very confident and her smile belies a good sense of humor about herself. anything worn with this ebullience is going to come of with a certain measure of success.

that said, i absolutely hate this outfit! it seems i'm the only person not into it...but this is simply not stylish. or age appropriate. or appealing in that special 'frisson-of-sartorialist-posting-awe' way i often feel when perusing the blog. it just looks like an editor with a closet full of freebies closed her eyes, stuck her hands into the mix, and pulled out a random assortment of questionable items. then wore them. all. at the same time.

also, since i'm already the naysayer of today (i'm sorry guys!!!)...could the Rio photos possibly bore me any more? those pics literally take all the excitement i've always imagined surrounding Rio and suck the air out of it. is Rio populated exclusively by bored-looking socialites and beach dudes? i doubt it. nothing inventive shown. nothing worn with passionate intensity. not even a single outfit that doesn't look like a sad in-store display at Barney's circa 2005. worse yet, they almost evoke (gasp) CALYPSO circa 2005. is that inspiring to ANYONE?!?!

again, i'm so sorry...i usually love the sart's eye but these past couple of weeks have been ultra disappointing!


Blogger D. said ... (6:45 PM) : 

I LOVE the long socks! Sock heights outside of knee high/crew are rare to see and just excellent.

The super subdued leopard pattern on her shorts is way better than the typical bold and loud animal prints I see.


Blogger John-Bryan Hopkins said ... (6:49 PM) : 

the short and the thigh high stockings are wonderful.

Makes me wonder what the shoes looked like.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:06 PM) : 

She is very genki (upbeat). She combines a Tokyo look (high socks or stockings with a short skirt) -but makes it look classy and playful rather than cheap like you see in Shibuya. This is really nice to see as she combines two cultures in a high end way. Would have like to see what shoes she was wearing


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:04 PM) : 

love, love, love!!!!!!!!!! this woman has amazing style and fine taste in off-beat luxury goods. im sure that outfit has got a hefty price tag but her demeanor shows shes not pretentious or seeking a certain level of status, she just seems to be having fun with it all!

i love how there is something kind of masculine and sporty about this but at the same time its still girly.

one of the most interesting mixes on here in a long time!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:34 PM) : 

wow the layering of the different textures and prints is amazingg


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:23 PM) : 

love love it. every detail and the personality to boot!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:08 PM) : 

Makes me think of Claudia Kishi from those old Baby-Sitters Club books, which is awesome.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:22 AM) : 

at first I said, NO. but the more I look at it and read the other comments the more I think she pulls it off.


Blogger J.Yo said ... (5:58 AM) : 

i lOVE her. and how she dress casually fabulous.


Blogger jessicadrhp said ... (6:11 AM) : 

like the outfit, especially items located on the lower half of the photo


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:12 AM) : 

She looks really noce her cardigan and the socks...quite nice..she must be freezing in NY now...;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:24 AM) : 

This is a lot of fun! She looks happy and I love her stance here. The shorts + socks look on her is sporty and cute rather than trashy (which is how I'd imagine thigh-highs and leopard-print shorts if I hadn't seen it here!). Stephanie


Blogger - said ... (10:32 AM) : 

love the sequined dress and I'm not a big fan of sequined pieces


Blogger John B Pritchett said ... (11:03 AM) : 

This is so beyond cute! I love the mix & match patterns, stockings and bag. Her personality shines through her face so well that I want to get to be friends with her. You may give her my name if you see her again!


Blogger Charlotte said ... (11:09 AM) : 

really cute!!

i keep coming back to this picture. i love everything about her look and good cheer. i envy the people who get to see her on a regular basis.


Blogger Matthew said ... (10:56 AM) : 

Chic, conceptual, and cool! The ultimate trinity! Solid look, for sure.


Blogger Me And My Beautiful World said ... (9:44 PM) :
