The third photo shows my version of the black/white/grey ensemble except for not showing the pewter bag. 1-2 are inspired by Anna Wintour. Suggestions and comments welcomed

    Your Anna Wintour interpretation is spot on... and absolutely stunning.
    What a gorgeous dress! Outfit #3 is lovely too. I love your released hem crops. And where did you get those fab shoes?

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Thank you, El Cee. The shoes in #3 are Eileen Fisher that I have had for at least a year. I will try to add a find for them.

  • El Cee replied 2 years ago

    Those are wonderful. And they look comfy. I am always looking for summer shoes that have toe coverage, but are still airy. I will see if I can find them on Amazon. Thanks.

    Both outfits are great.

  • bonnie replied 2 years ago

    I see Anna Wintour in your beautiful dotty dress and your perfect hair. Love your gray,black,white outfit, too. 

  • shevia replied 2 years ago

    Both are fantastic on you. Elegant!

  • Firecracker replied 2 years ago

    Your dotted dress outfit is beautiful. It does evoke Anna Wintour's classic, polished, feminine style. The second outfit is lovely on you as well--the cropped flares are terrific. I like your addition of red to the ensemble.

    You look great.  That spotted dress is very pretty and is like what the lady like Anna Wintour would wear.  I like the cropped jeans outfit too...more french chic.

    Joy, everything looks great. I definitely see the Anna Wintour influence. I adore your scarf. Black and white (with grey) are not my personal favorite so I love that you have a touch of fuschia. The Asian print is gorgeous.

    Beautiful on you, Joy, and absolutely up to your icon's standards! 

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Thank you all for your lovely comments. I wanted to look more Anna by wearing a jacket with the dress, but could not find one that I liked while having to dash out the door. This was also what I wore for turning 70. Yikes! That is old. I need to get into a yoga class or something.

    Yep, nailed her. I prefer #3 though, I'm not a fan of her style, too retro/conventionally feminine and too maximal for my taste.

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Thank you, Skylurker. I understand about too maximal and have to fight that tendency in cooler weather.
    El Cee,the EF flats run true to size if you find them. I tried a half size up too and it would also have worked. There is a taupe color called "granite" and a black suede in the Allot style.

    That is a perfect Anna W outfit.  That lady is so put together, it's quite intimidating! 

    Really love the second outfit, it's so casually sophisticated. 

  • tulle replied 2 years ago

    I'm going to commit fashion heresy and say that I think you are more elegant than Anna Wintour!  She strikes me as rigid, lacking  joie de vivre or sensuality.  Your elegance seems natural, uncontrived and happy. 

  • olga replied 2 years ago

    you look very good in a dress, definitely Anna inspired

  • texstyle replied 2 years ago

    Really beautiful - that dress is so pretty on you!  I also love the outfit in #3. Great rendition of your style icon here.

  • Angie replied 2 years ago

    You look Killer Gorgeous in both outfits, Joy. 

  • Bennett replied 2 years ago

    Loving that dress - how the spots are falling to the hem! That little detail makes it so interesting and eye-catching. And I love me some lady-like shoes!!! I feel like I could shop your closet very happily. I look forward to seeing your outfits!

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Thank you all for your encouraging comments.
    Xtabay, using Anna Wintour as a fashion icon ...well, intimidating is a good word.
    Tulle, you are a sweetheart. I hope that I can aspire to a happy, natural elegance.
    Olga and Texstyle, thank you for your lovely comments. I have always loved that dress and felt ladylike wearing it.
    Angie, you made my day. I'll bask in your "Killer Gorgeous"
    Bennett, I loved your comment. These shoes are probably some of the most ladylike I have. I'm happy that you like my outfits.
