  1. To me this structured jacket does not "go" with this interesting, flowing skirt. Sophie is lovely, however this outfit is a "got dressed in the dark/fail" in my opinion.

  3. I do like the color of the skirt, but agree that the jacket is not a good match with it.

  4. Not a success. The jacket is ordinary and the skirt is a little strange. Maybe the skirt would have worked with a different top [although I can't think what that would be...].

  5. Lovely to see her wearing a daffodil for St David's day!

  6. I don't have any issues with the jacket, it's a correct basic piece. The skirt however is as unflattering for Sophie as good it looks on the model. I think the D of C or Charlene would wear this skirt very well but Sophie is still not (hm, sorry in advance for the expression) stick thin enough to wear it. Also, the pleated (or whatever) part seems to turn inside on the model whilst it turns outside on Sophie and apparently that doesn't make it any better.

    1. You are right. She wears it the wrong way. The quilling part belongs in the middle and not on the side. Also she seems to wear it too low on the hips, but I think it should be worn high waisted, as shown by the model, so the pleat would spring open right under the belly an not in the middle of the thigh a swith Sophie. Also the elegant nude pumps are wrong with the style. I would have chosen sone kind of flat College shoes tied with laces. Or a High College Shoe with block heel and bommels. And instead of the dull black jacket a shirt jacket in cream or beige with a slight safari approach.

    2. ZL agree with your completely. Although i think Sohpie looks completely fine she is just not that thin to wear eveything. Agree also about the pleated part, it is not worn right by Sohpie.

  7. Maybe a gift from Mrs. Beckham? Shame she forgot the black shoes from the photo.

  8. Jacket and skirt don't seem to go together well.

  9. She looks charming but this time she picked out weird combination: ordinary, conservative black jacket and very modern skirt which she doesn't know how to wear. And shoes make this mess even bigger, they are too elegant for this look.
