    woooow love those margiela boots….*__* and this dress look great !!

  10. Sunset says:

    Love love love the way it just drapes over your body. And your hair is literally perfect. Are the right arm and body sleeves the pant legs?
    And great shoe choice. The itty bit of toe poking out balances out the skin.

  11. sophia says:

  26. Amanda says:

    I love it so much! I just looked at every single one of your posts in 1 day haha I love it! I realized we only see you in like 2 or 3 pairs of flats. I’m guessing you probably have more flats, maybe do a post on them so we can see!? I wear mostly flats unfortunately so I’d love to see how you pull them off!

  32. Francesca says:

  33. shoegal1490 says:

    I’m dying to work out how this was done – please someone shed light on how she fashioned those pants into a dress!!! I love it!

  34. Eden says:

    You have finally seduced me ;)
    Will you marry me?
    We can be chic together as we storm the Vogue offices and Anna’s wig falls off. Storming it with HEELS. But what to wear?

  35. Eden says:

    (ALSO: I’ll wear the Junya cardigan)

  36. kristin says:

    ah, I love the boot/sandals so much and the sweatshirt as a dress is lovely with them. the pale colors look so nice on you.

  37. Iona says:

    You’re amazing.
    As pants, I think I could take it or leave it.
    But as a dress.. Wow-ee.
    Clever clever

  47. Melissa says:

    Hi there. I just want to tell you that I absolutely adore your blog and your exquisite fashion sense. Of the many fashion blogs I have perused, this one is the best. It’s mad inspiring, as I’ve finally gotten around to going through my closet to experiment with the copious amount of previously unworn clothing. And I just want to say that the outfit that you wore in a recent post (the Y-3 skirt, beaded vest, and blazer look) was gorgeous, and I was able to come up with a similar concoction myself.
    Oh, and it’s hard to believe you’re so young, as you seem mature beyond your years.

  48. Christine says:

    Got to say, you’re blog is so amazing! Your outfits are so incredibly gorgeous! And those ebay tips are great! They’ve definately put more faith in ebay for me.

  49. Allie says:

    WOW. That’s all I can say.

  50. moded'amour says:

    i was working with one shoulder skirts and blouses, and the pants seemed to be a natural thing to try. sorry about that.

  63. Alice says:

    Hi, I’m from Paris.
    That is beautiful!

  64. TamZ says:

    OMG! I love this outfit! I did that once too- with black gaucho pants. But they use different fabric so it was more ‘form-fitting’ so it just seemed more like a strapless dress with a sleeve that I could tie up and everything. Well this outfit is gorgeous!
