This is such an enticing colour scheme going on here. A visual treat indeed.

she's got a very interesting style


Blogger Marcel Da Chump said ... (12:22 PM) : 

She has so much to smile about--but she's no mood.
And I respect that.


Blogger Raloo said ... (12:24 PM) : 

Love the lime green & lilac combination, although I'm not sure that the accessories are from the same story as the coat...
But I'm pretty sure it's the first time I see fur and silk together.
Anyway, very interesting shot, like always :-)


Blogger Sandy Leonard Snaps said ... (12:25 PM) : 

Wish I could pull off this look. Alas, I think I'd look like 'M. Butterfly' if I tried. Still, she looks great.


Blogger Annette said ... (12:26 PM) : 

A bit too crazy for my taste, but the colors are certainly an interesting combination. I admire her for wearing exactly what she wants, and you for taking her photo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:26 PM) : 

Beautifully shot--it captures a Poiret-reminiscent orientalism.


Blogger agata said ... (12:27 PM) : 

the colours are perfect in this look!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:28 PM) : 

Great photograph. The contrasting textures are fantatsic - esp. the granite building exterior, the window grate and the stenciled lettering in the window as a backdrop to the bright colors.

I'm sure the posters here will rave about her bag, and I'll defer to the swarm on that. I do like what she's trying to do here - give us a bolt of color on a dreary London day. While her kimono is lovely, I give this look a thumbs down outside of the boudoir. And I have no idea what that chartreuse thing is, but it looks a little weather-worn.

I just don't get it.

the colours are superb


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:32 PM) : 

i want to see what shoes she's picked to go with this frock...


Blogger Amy said ... (12:32 PM) : 

This is such a great picture-- I love the somewhat serious glance over her shoulder juxtaposed with the whimsicality of her outfit. Also fun and unusual: a pop of neon with saturated pastel colors.


Anonymous Greggy said ... (12:37 PM) : 

WOW that fur scarf is tremendous!

love all the colours here!


Anonymous Cassandra said ... (12:37 PM) : 

This is so very london. She reminds me of an English Norma Desmond. The colors are wonderful.


Blogger Naftali Stern said ... (12:42 PM) : 

Love the embroidery detail!

what an eloquent look. she looks stunning! you always capture the best moments.


Blogger Milica said ... (1:17 PM) : 

Wonderful colors!


Blogger Andresgallardo said ... (1:19 PM) : 

nice embroidery


Blogger Mary Beth said ... (1:22 PM) : 

This is the famous cocoon rarely seen nowadays. But I like the purple and the dash of chartreuse. Completely refreshing.


Blogger comme fraiche said ... (1:23 PM) : 

I like the embroidery on her coat and the color is different,
I've seen a lot of black and dark tones lately so a change is


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:29 PM) : 

Such a unique choice for day.



Blogger The Lifestyle News said ... (1:35 PM) : 

I love this colors!!

really nice picture



Blogger Shannon Elle said ... (1:36 PM) : 

The pop of color here is awakening to the eye, especially set against the dreary background. Pastel pink and purple mixed was popular in the 80's and I like it mixed up with the fluoro green dipped fur - a nice take on the hair trend since she has short hair (or for someone who doesn't want to color their long hair). The kimono reminds me of something either to be worn only in the confines of one's home or Mrs. Roper's tacky mu'umu'us from the American television comedy Three's Company. The bag is fantastic and I want to steal it, although trying to see the straps... A great photograph, not my style, but I can appreciate her expression as wonderful nonetheless.

Blogger Project Curve said ... (2:07 PM) : 

i really like the bag.but not liking the coat color.
follow me here


Anonymous elxoxodetuprima said ... (2:13 PM) : 

Oh my God!! that is a Paul Poiret’s Révérend Coat which was worn by Jeanne Boivin-Poiret, 1905, in silk damask with silk floss embroidery. There is one, very much similar exposed at the
Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris.
She is brave wearing it.A fashion statement in itself!


Anonymous heatherheartsfashion said ... (2:32 PM) : 

this gyal knows what she's doing, trrue steez.

She's brave. But I dislike those colors...


Blogger so, dress me said ... (3:12 PM) : 

i really hope she's wearing overalls underneath like Ouiser Boudreaux.


Blogger Doortje said ... (3:15 PM) : 

Wish there were people walking around like that here in the boring Netherlands.. Unfortunately, there aren't. Great outfit.


Blogger The Science Fair said ... (3:16 PM) : 

Beautiful photo.

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

I agree with the Poiret inspired comment although I think that, perhaps, she feels a little uncomfortable wearing this. She looks fantastic - except for maybe the bag.


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:32 PM) : 

The piece itself is pretty but not with the green collar... well, maybe I am Asia, this is just awkward seeing on the street currently...she could be a princess from Mongolian traveling by time machine. ^^

But again, in fashion, it is gorgeous!!


Blogger ▲▲Lacing Up▲▲ said ... (3:52 PM) : 

love the colors!!!


Blogger La Petite Monic said ... (4:24 PM) : 

Wow! I am in love with colours! She looks amazing!

loving the two tone scarf...

Awesome pictures, love candids!



Anonymous BeLighter said ... (4:51 PM) : 

What a gorgeous colour! And the embroidery is simply exquisite!
Great photo!


Anonymous Caroline said ... (6:13 PM) : 

As the fur could have given a tacky mage her look becomes glamorous in context with the jacket and the pink bag.


Blogger The Foolish Aesthete said ... (6:58 PM) : 

I was just saying elsewhere how much I like the apple green and violet combination!


Anonymous Tracy Wohlgenant said ... (7:30 PM) : 

So 1920s, love the colors. But most of all, I love her lipstick. And the rest of her fresh, unembellished, very English face.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:06 AM) : 

That coat is something else! Love her expression, too. Looks like she's thinking that if one more person is snarky about her chartreuse boa she's going to stuff it up his/her nose.


Blogger LoveE ♥ said ... (2:39 AM) : 

Love the colour palette here, just amazing!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:46 AM) : 

What a gorgeous,gorgeous girl, I actually saw her walking down the street in this outfit and she looked amazing !!! BTW. she had on denim jeans and leopard skin vintage YSL,S

Where they live foxes with a green tail?

Blogger Izzen said ... (4:53 PM) : 

Lime and purple? Reminds me of my teenage dreams.


Anonymous perrt said ... (9:53 PM) : 

love the color combo but not the textures...? lovely lip color and bag.


Anonymous discount louis vuitton said ... (11:38 PM) : 

I'm SO not a fan of this look. But what I do like are her red nails peeking out and her red bag. What's happening with the rolled up pants? It feels like way too much navy. Is that possible?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:14 AM) : 

Finally COLOUR! More please!!!


Blogger M.J.Woodbridge said ... (1:33 AM) : 

loving the bright colored furs of late.

I agree with anonymous who said "Poiret-reminiscent orientalism"...she has a bit of a Dorothy Parker aire about her...

Wow, that Asian coat/robe is absolutely DIVINE!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:24 PM) : 

WOW! I am loving this cocoon coat! Color, shape, detailing, everything!


Blogger youth styler said ... (6:19 AM) : 

so lovely, i like the color.........yeah


Anonymous Maryanne said ... (11:07 AM) : 

beginning to wonder if fashion is for the wearer..or the viewer?

was this outfit put together because of a love for colour?
put together to elicit double takes.


Blogger Roberto Pires said ... (3:14 PM) : 

Paul Poiret is not dead...


Blogger Malo said ... (3:44 PM) : 

What a colorful lady...





Blogger Carolina Benoit said ... (9:03 AM) : 

Her face... And yes, the look is absolutely Paul Poiret

Anonymous Habu said ... (4:34 AM) : 

wow. this silhouette looks like japanese kimono... cool.


Blogger Curators of Style said ... (7:29 PM) : 

Each piece individually is amazing, especially the jacket but all together. Wow, it's on a whole new level. I bet she is an artist, at the very least she has an amazing sense of style and color matching. I love that she is not wearing a lot of make-up, she has such beautiful skin and the lipstick does the trick.


Blogger lollipop4598 said ... (8:52 PM) : 

Its not a kimono, people. Its a coat. A wonderful coat, with a very cool fur collar. I absolutely love it, and her matching lipstuff.


Blogger Hazel said ... (10:32 AM) : 

Wonderful - love the Poiret orientalism


Blogger Carlos Contreras said ... (5:38 AM) : 

I think that stunnig kimono comes from Elisa Palomino first colection.
She looks terrific, I love it!
