First, thank you for your wonderful words on my post yesterday about my father. I woke thinking there is so much more I want to tell you about him, but we've got all the time in the world.

I was also semi dreaming about the shots in this post, I have no idea why. Possibly because it is to me, style perfection. This is Jennifer, who I met last week @ ASOS (I PROMISE I will tell you the story of why I've been going there), but for now, and since I've got to scoot out the door ASAP, I'm just going to let the images speak for themselves.



Apart from one thing: note her nails. I love that grey with the cream of her blouse. It's those subtle details that keep this from being a matchy matchy top to toe black and white look.



That, and the colour of her hair. And that particular warm red of her lipstick. Okay, that's it, I'll shut up now.



Sorry, just had one more thing: those lace anklet socks with the brogues. Isn't amazing?

Blouse by Zara, don't know about the rest. Shot at ASOS HQ last Thursday. How was your weekend, Kittens?

Kazuko said...

i have a soft spot for ruffled shirts and the lace anklet socks are very cute with brogues..its given me ideas!

about the street style competition, my favourites flicking back are 'copper tone' and 'the politics of style'.

This girl is dressed perfectly, exactly to my taste! I think you should choose this for your Vogue entry... But, I would just like you to know I was going to tell you about the competition to because you are just such a fantastic street style blogger and I seriously hope they check out your blog and see all the support you get from your followers!

Anyone can take a photo of a cute girl in a pretty dress, and many street blogs I read have an eye for style but out of all the blogs, no one can capture personality quite like you xx

I love the lipstick! I noticed an ad at the bus stops here in NYC for Chanel Rouge lipstick, and I think the model in the ad is wearing a shade called Muse, which looks like a match for that worn by the prettier version of Callista Flockhart in your blog. Great shade for paler skin tones, I think.

OMG she's so georgous!

Ana said...

I love her outfit; everything goes so well together, the colours and the materials... This is elegant and feminine, yet casual and comfortable. Just perfect :)
p-s: she wears her watch on her right hand loll I never met someone who did so too :)
