  1. The PM is quite young.

    Not a fan of Victoria's outfit today. Jacket is too short to wear with that type of blouse. It almost looks like a bolero. But it is not. It makes her look chunky? Boxy? Squarish? Hard to describe. I do not like this at all.

    I do like the color.

    1. Terrible with the tucked in shirt. Yuck. Loving the fall color palettes this year!

  2. Sorry but those were horrible outfits for both ladies.

    1. Apparently the prime minister's wife is expecting. I guess it's the privilege of the extremely wealthy ones (like the Duchess of Cambridge) to have bespoke maternity clothing that fits perfectly. The rest of us mortals, including the wife of a not-so-wealthy european country's PM, must compromise and live with what the high street stores offer :)
      I agree with all of you this wasn't a hit from Victoria. Too much burgundy, I hate the blouse tucked in and that jacket does nothing but take the whole outfit to fashion hell. I envision these trousers with a fitted, crisp white top with 3/4 or wrist lenght sleeves, statement earring or even necklace and voila, I hear the heavenly choir of fashion angels :)

    2. Yes, prime minister's wife is expecting but there are lots of very lovely and stylish maternity dresses that can fit all kind of budgets and that are suitable to wear at all kind of events. Paying lots of money for clothes does not always mean that you get good and flattering things (we've seen lots of outfits that are very expensive but can look dowdy).
      I googled Luisa Värk's name and there were lots of horrible outfits. She just seems to prefer styles that are not flattering or bordering on weird.

    3. You might be right. I had no idea who she was (a pop singer and former Estonian Pop Idol contestant) but I too googled her now and looks like she's very much into... well... how to call it... quirky clothing. I still think maternity clothing for a not so wealthy woman is a struggle and there isn't really a wide spectrum to choose from. At least in Eastern Europe there isn't.

    4. ZL, Estonia is a modern country that has definitely left the Soviet era behind particularly in the Tallinn area. Countryside is another thing, but Tallinn is full of malls with thousands of brands available. Even brands that are accessible to a person who is not so rich. I know Estonia well and sometimes travel to Tallinn just for shopping as it's easy to find affordable brands that suit me and can be worn at work (I work in the finance sector and the dress code is strict).

    5. I am 80 years old. I expected my first child in 1961, and even the dowdiest of today's maternity outfits are super beautiful compared to what was available in stores in 1961, which was so bad that I made my own outfits, including a red trimmed with black suit with the obligatory, at the time, skirt with a hole. I remember queen Elizabeth when she was expecting Prince Andrew in 1959- she could afford the best and most expensive maternity outfits, and they were still ugly!!

    6. ZL; little bit prejudice ;-) Estonia is today very much Western Europe. There in Tallinn are much more fasion shops than in many other coutries of Europe.

    7. Yes, there are lots of fashion shops in Estonia, in Tallinn. Besides there are very good designers who create very good fashion and girlfriend of prime minister can easily afford elegant outfits. If she wants, that is. She obviously prefer "quirky" clothing like ZL so well said :)

  3. Really not her best outfit, except for the colour I'd say epic fail.

  5. Not any good day for either of the ladies here. That is no good color to Victoria and Luisa Värk looks like tank. Lots of better options for maternity wear available, though color is becoming to her.

  6. Victoria - just take off the jacket and let your hair down and you´ll be fine. That jacket may actually look stunning over a sheath dress or with a pencil skirt and tight top.

  7. Wow I just took a good close up look at these two outfits and they are both hot messes... I do like the color of Victorias outfit but that tucked in shirt just ruins the whole thing and the other lady, whatever is she wearing??? A coat?? Coat dress??? Strange looking outfit.
