Set of the Day

"is it true?" by ckhopper
"you can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl"

I think people tend to underestimate the importance of a good graphic. Imagine this set WITHOUT the cartoon...it's good...yes, but it isn't set of the day. The cartoon is why this is set of the day, because it provides a unique, thought-provoking context. That said, I love the shoes. I would have gone for a salmon colored shoe and I would have been wrong, because the shoe keeps this very realistic rather than, sort of...cartoony in a christian lacroix kinda way. The bag is one of my favorites because the color is so unusual and supersaturated. The gold accessories complement the outfit very nicely, and i LOVE LOVE LOVE the pink make-up. It perfectly excecutes the meaning behind this set. It's pretty, sophisticated, and playful...kinda flirty with a sense of humor. Well done!
