On the Street....The Strand, London

Ooh, everything is just Right in this one. The jacket first of all so classy and the silky inner of it coming out in the rolled sleeves, lovely. The red hair, always beautiful, turban with flowers. Just everything.



Blogger James Gerrard said ... (8:39 AM) : 

Although I do think she looks stunning. Haven't we seen one too many beige coats with a colourful turban. Still I'd dress like her if I was a girl. For me it's always attractive when a girl puts on a white shirt with a defining collar.

I know her, she has just won an Elle stylist competition and is about to start working for them.

Love the drape of her coat and the simple belt x


Blogger The Fancy Teacup said ... (8:51 AM) : 

That floral turban and the collar detail are so eye catching, and I'm completely fascinated with her hard case satchel!
much love.


Blogger Carou et Maylou said ... (8:51 AM) : 

The good way to wear long clothes. I really like.

Blogger Collections said ... (9:04 AM) : 

Love this picture, the coat is gorgeous.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:06 AM) : 

Looks chic, save for the turban gone wrong. It looked that she had stepped out of the shower, gotten dressed but forgotten to unfurl her lustrous locks!


Blogger Una B. said ... (9:07 AM) : 

All I can say is just "wow",because her look is awesome.Every single detail makes it look perfect and that cigarette with smoke!Perfect

Very 50's inspired with a modern layered look. I like.

Wow. Looks more like something you'd see on a set from a period piece.

Love her jacket-robe thing. However, she's smoking. Instantly lose a certain amount of respect for people I see smoking.

Loving the contrast of the head scarf and ankle bracelet.


Anonymous Judith said ... (9:40 AM) : 

what an amazing coat! she looks wonderful!

love ,


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:41 AM) : 

Hard to know what we're looking at here. Is that a bathrobe, an alb, a Vestal Virgin's palla, or? Is she fashionable, or a nun, or Amish? Details like the cigarette and the diamonds around her left ankle as well as her presence on this blog would seem to suggest the former. Of course everyone will compliment the photograph with all the white.


Blogger Elizabeth said ... (9:46 AM) : 

tough and edgy, i love it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:50 AM) : 

I'm overwhelmed by the details! The rolled up sleeves change everything

Blogger Agne said ... (10:41 AM) : 

omg. long clothes fits her so well!


Anonymous Macha said ... (10:43 AM) : 

The long skirt is very beautiful. And I love the color of the jacket ("poudre"). The red hair are also amazingly gorgeous.


Blogger Brittany H. said ... (10:45 AM) : 

Everything here is perfect. The color palette, the eyebrows, the short hair, the cigarette. LOVE that coat. She's divine.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:49 AM) : 

this is beautiful!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:17 AM) : 

Really, I thought she was an actress leaving stage to have a cigarette break--it looks like a maid's dress underneath, and she put on The Lady's dressing gown to step outside. I would be very confused seeing this look on the street.


Blogger comme fraiche said ... (11:24 AM) : 

Rolling up the sleeve of her coat to expose the lining is a different look as is wearing a turban, she has her own ideas about fashion


Blogger Nadine2point0 said ... (12:05 PM) : 

wow - time warp.
Love her 'case".


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:23 PM) : 

Really do not like this look. Nothing here works for me, she looks like she is trying too hard to look original.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:31 PM) : 

I like the coat but at the same time I sort of get a Jedi knight vibe from it...


Blogger celeste said ... (12:45 PM) : 

super chic. i love how each of the different hues go together so well.


Blogger 82Brute said ... (1:25 PM) : 

Shades of Alice Kramden and Lucille Ball, but in a good way. My one criticism is that the head wrap takes the look too literally into bathrobe territory, despite all the wonderful things going on underneath. Still, she's done something special here.


Blogger thwany said ... (1:52 PM) : 

love it


Blogger Cory said ... (2:05 PM) : 

Although I appreciate the originality, this look reminds me too much of something that should be worn at home after bath, rather than outside in London. I think the white collar + turban make her look a bit like a turn of the century maid!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:01 PM) : 

Awesome individual style.


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:14 PM) : 

Cool shoes and bags, amazing!


Anonymous Sophie Mhabille said ... (3:24 PM) : 

She is young but she looks very mature in this outfit with a very strong personnality


Blogger My Heart Blogged said ... (3:49 PM) : 

I love the turban on her. She looks casual chic.

Not sure about the turban and such a shame about the cigarette. Rest is lovely - particularly the coat.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:23 PM) : 

Genuinely strange and absolutely beautiful mix of periods and pieces. THAT'S style.


Anonymous Elisabeth - Everything's Better with Frosting said ... (4:36 PM) : 

Love the lines of the coat and the case together. I kind of have to agree with some of the others that the outfit underneath looks reminiscent of a maid's uniform, though.

beautiful textures! AND THOSE SHOES.


Blogger Eline said ... (5:34 PM) : 

Incredible coat.


Blogger LoveE ♥ said ... (5:40 PM) : 

This outfit is truly amazing. Love the jacket, bag, everything really!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:58 PM) : 

nice, but is there a line drawn between costume and fashion? perhaps expression of one's identity vs being someone else's?


Blogger davidikus said ... (8:38 PM) : 

What strikes me is the long simple silhouette, like a candle. I have seen this a bit recently & it is very unlike most recent threads. Perhaps silhouettes will become more like that in the near future.


Blogger Katherine said ... (9:52 PM) : 

She is like a very fashionable woman from the 40's who just came out to grab the morning paper! Love it

Blogger Dorothy said ... (11:15 PM) : 

Very interesting look. But it doesn't quite work for me. The outfit seems to age her. Cool originality though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:43 PM) : 

just slightly dressing-gowny? but nice headscarf.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:40 AM) : 

Looks like someone who dressed to get the attention of street fashion photographers.

real french chic.


Anonymous Ms. Mellow said ... (4:22 AM) : 

Not my favorite look but she seems to have it together. Like the belted jacket a lot thought!

love the coat with the corded belt, and the bag looks interesting


Blogger hp said ... (10:24 AM) : 

Haha...sorry, I don't get the turban. But I love the rest of her outfit! Including are-those-anklets (?) on her boots. :)


Blogger Milica said ... (2:01 PM) : 

Love her coat! :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:25 PM) : 

Soigne. This flirts with a 1950s housewife or 1930s maid, but these references enrich the look rather than detract from it. I agree with the writer who says that the look "confuses" her eye: but I love such confusion, which I call "enlivens."

Substantial fabrics, non?


Anonymous ak said ... (10:06 PM) : 

This is why London fashion is my favorite despite everyhting else! Her coat is so hot, yet I still love her 'chambermaid's dress' underneath it. Very Upstairs and Downstairs or Downton Abbey! LOL

The lipstick and hair color contrasts but in a very good way, not a tacky way.


Blogger Docta Slick said ... (2:29 AM) : 



Blogger ql said ... (7:26 AM) : 

I don't like the colour of her bag, but the belt and the shoes - excellent!


Blogger Hazel said ... (8:29 AM) : 

She looks like a char lady from the 1940s. Very Hilda Ogden from Coronation Street. Is there a return to 40s fashion in London?


Anonymous Maryanne said ... (9:21 AM) : 

strong eastern european old world look.


Anonymous FierceObjection said ... (12:18 PM) : 

The discipline of this outfit is so perfectly matched with the rebelious hair color and turban...looove everything happening here.


Anonymous Sara Lua said ... (2:33 PM) : 

I can say enough how much this lady knows herself and mixed elements so well. Anyone know about her coat? The sateen lining in pearlescent pink is divine.


Blogger Claire Luce Baldwin said ... (8:26 PM) : 

absolutely stunning-- crisp and fashion-forward, nice clean lines and bold pops of color. I love the coat-- its refreshing to see women go for non-obvious silhouettes.


Blogger Román Iglesias said ... (10:13 AM) : 

It´s dificult to me to say tahat but I really Like this coat



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:24 AM) : 

It is nice. But in my opinion it looks like she tried too hard....The turban looks like a showercap. Sorry.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:02 PM) : 

Its so perfect. Coat is perfect, the wrap is cute, and the outfit underneath is great. You can tell she is really a cool person inside too, somehow. This is one of my very favorite outfits. I just love this. And the fact that some people are snotty about the hair wrap proves that she is innovative. If everyone likes an outfit fine, that means it isn't really cutting edge. When some people don't get it, that means its outside their comfort zone, and that is a sort of compliment too.


Blogger miss k said ... (4:37 PM) : 

Love this look, love her whole demeanor in general. She has a kind of grace about her x


Anonymous Fernanda Brazil said ... (8:47 PM) : 

something like Frida Khalo...
