  1. To me that outfit makes her seem like a 70 year old from the 30s who has just gotten out of bed and collected her catch from the bear trap outside then decided to show it off to the towns people by wearing her winnings around her neck.

  2. honestly, i love her hair and her accesories. but i think it would be wise if she doesnt wear that dress, she look so huge. but she’s very pretty, really!

  3. *sigh*

    I wish that people would be more open minded…anyways, I really like this antique inspired look (Dolly girl style, it seems like) – it’s very simple, folk-tale-like, and modest; interesting contrast to her urban setting. Even if there will be folks getting riled up about a dead animal around her neck, I’m quite sure that it’s still socially acceptable as it looks like a vintage item (meaning that this wasn’t a creature from the fur farm industry) – definitely a touch of uniqueness.

  4. She looks like some terror movie’s character with these dead animal around her neck… bizarre…

  5. The poor animal! The girl seemed to enjoy wearing that thing around her neck.

  6. I love the whimsical, fairy tale sort of feel one gets from her outfit… the softness of the shawl, the flow of her dress, the beautiful arctic fox… just has such a serene feel to it!

  7. Really awfull the fact of wearing dead animal, but the rest is cool

  8. Kind of tacky…especially wearing a dead animal around her neck -_-“

  9. If I was wearing her clothes, I could sleep anywhere…
