I looove your pants. I've seen them on you before I think, but they're still awesome.

I love the way you look in the fourth photo...so beautiful!!

I love the pants. I was with the outfit until the leg warmers. You're too broken up with the dress and the pants and the warmers.

Judith tagged this Adorable

This is adorable -- have been wondering though about the long sleeves under the dress -- long underwear? arm warmers? Please advise!

che tagged this Cute

how did you think of this? in theroy it doesnt work but once again you manage to pull it off. keep up the great work.

beck tagged this safari fun!

this is gorgeous! such warm colors, and the silhouette is fantastic. :) nice to see a bit of a change up from the typical tights-under-the-dress look. love!


Would love to see the pumps alone (or at least what they look like without the leg warmers on them) b/c they look cool....

Viva la Sandinista! very Combat Rock of you to drop the Clash reference (the call up) for the freedom fighter fatigues look. so clever with the play on words. you need to have a chapter in the book on all your eclectic bits of cultural inspiration for the project. titles, styles, inside jokes in the comments section. there's a whole world of ideas in this project that i fear lots of people are missing, and they deserve to be brought to light. the book will need to be thick, but not for the thick.

that cowl is gorgeous, but I LOVE the legwarmers. I would love to dress like this everyday - but I'm not sure it would go over well in my small town.

abigail tagged this cosy

MM is right....you have the brains AND the stylishness! I often wonder if people are too wrapped up in the wraps to get the play on words! I appreciate them too!

I love the cowl/dress combo! It looks very cozy and laid back. The pants and legwarmers are a cheeky pair. It looks like it'd be fun to wear. =)

Annette tagged this Brave

I love your creativity, commitment to sustainability, and improvisational style. However, could a curvier girl pull this off? Or many of your other variations for that matter?

Irene tagged this Hot

Cute and snuggly. The legwarmers don't exactly go with the shoes though.

I just found your site and your project. It's great! The idea is great, the dress is great, your outfits are great, ...

sarah tagged this Cute

i <3 this outfit! the only thing i don't care for are the leg warmers and the shoes, but i Love the tights, shorts, the cowl, and the long sleeve!

Ida tagged this Hot

I love this look! but I would've worn it without the leg warmers.


Really like the cowl, leg warmers are fun, but a bit much together, for my taste.

Bobbi tagged this Hot

Great look, needs closer fitting leg warmers. Though you could also wear on your arms. Hmmmm, liking that last bit.

Lisa tagged this Cute

Totally love every aspect of this outfit. Classic and comfy looking at the same time. VERY NICE !!!!

Nina tagged this Cute

You're always so adorable. Keep doing that way, thumbs up for the project! Best wishes


Love the outfit! but sorry to be cheeky.... Lose the leg warmers. It would be heaps sharper without them.

jolly M tagged this Cute

cosy cowl & comfy pants.... I love those pictures esp:4th one...Totally agree with mm that you ought to have a book at the end of your project which would be very popular - with all those styles , fashion,inspirational- intelligent-humerous & challenging play of words in your daily titles. Ofcourse, with all the daily comments and any chapters added, we will have a feast on that thick book... hmmm I can't help thinking - What would be Sheena's title for her future book ?

Kathryn tagged this Untidy

I really dislike this. There are too many bumps and frumps your pedal pushers. This outfit doesn't flow together at all.


Top half is so cool.

Maarit tagged this Cute

I love how eclectic this outfit is, very much what I would wear. Keep up the amazing work.


You rules !


I really like it. It is adorable. I follow all the fashion trends and know something about it. I must say that the color scheme is pleasant for an eye. The gaiters complete the image making it fresh and organic. When I worked as a stylist I looked through a lot of fashion magazines and downloaded a lot of photos on search engine on torrent files http://www.picktorrent.com as far as I remember. Those photos formed the basis of my vision of a fashionable image. They are indeed worth attention.


Great article, you mention some really interesting point. http://www.rapidsloth.com/Windows-Live-Messenger-v9.0.html you can see oter opinions on the matter.
