Great colors, esp. the white vest set off by the black. Pencil skirt under the Uniform is inspired!

Love the outfit, hate the make up.

DAO tagged this Try Harder

Something is wrong with red pencil skirt. I think it'd be ok if there's no that red skirt.....

Rachel tagged this Cute

Not keen on the skirt, but LOVE the crochet vest and the shoes!


LOVE that vest!

Laura tagged this Brave

It's incredible you're still truckin in that same black dress, kudos! I'm waiting for the day you tuck it into a longer skirt because so far you've just left the black dress over your skirts. btw I'm a painter and because of this site have been inspired to accept fashion as an avenue towards social commentary, and decided to run with that, so thank you.


Correction: haven't seen it tucked into longer* skirts

Re: Shoes. Love your mom! Maybe a pix of you, Eliza, and your mom one day?


The vest is very chic! But the skirt underneath doesn't fit so well here, maybe is just the shape of it.

Red & white, ready to fight?? awesome altogether....how did it go at the Design for Life Panel? Wish we were there...


First you do an air trot on Saturday. Now you do an air kiss. Get over yourself. Don't let this go to your head, but I do actually like your vest.


Have you considered folding up (or tuckingin( the dress in some way to shorten it so that you can experiment with more bottom garments? That would give you additional variety as the looks are having similar overtones at the moment. Also wearing it open might be an option.

I love that you are experiementing with different things coming out from under the dress. Skirts, pants, etc. Very cool. that read is nice too

@ 'air' it's London Fashion Week air kissing is a must!!

mm tagged this A: New York Times

(silly joke in the tag, sorry)BUT, how could someone say the skirt doesn't fit?! it's there as an accent (and the "fit" is impossible to see), no? maybe it's just semantics. if they're saying they don't like it, it doesn't "fit" with the rest of the ensemble, that's fine. diff strokes. mind you, they're wrong. because it's an incredible creation, one of your best.


That is so cool:) So cute ans creative:)

Mariah tagged this Knot for the Timid

While not usually inclined to 2nd comments in a day, props to previous post that "air kisses" are de rigueur. Fashion Week is the best of culture and performance -- be dramatic! It's art! It's theatre! Even when/if we don't like it . . . And, most of all, it's FUN!

Anneka tagged this In love!

Louise tagged this Like Snow White

Comes off as a bit of cosplay or something but workable. Cute.

Payal tagged this Wow!

The bright red peeking out from under the black dress is simply stunning! The white stockings and black shoes give it that touch of innocence. Love it! Love the headband.

Irene tagged this Whimsical loveee

So cute, interesting and really coordinated. The vest is really cool.

Adriana tagged this Cute

Ótima idéia!!!! Adorei os look's!


Love the Vest. Not such a fan of the red skirt. Maybe if it didnt have the side slits it would look more like a garment than a loin cloth! Plus the eye make-up's a little too much with the rest of the boldness going on in the outfit. Can't believe i'm critisising! I think yourfab for your mission!
