Only #9 - I think she needs a couple of chunky bracelets instead of a necklace.

My favorites this week are #1, #7, #8 and #9.  Love white jeans but I’m always afraid when wearing them that I’ll end up walking around with a big splotch on my backside! 😳  I love the skirt in #6 but don’t seem to have a place to wear one now.

#5 reminds me of what we wore in the 1960s.

 

I made dozens of this style dress back then!

I like the colorful tops.  I've made a few colorful crochet pieces for the summer.  

  

 

Another 1960s look.  I wore them then and I'm wearing them now!

 

I bought three pairs of high waist wide leg pants .... leg opening is 24 1/4" ... but there is no pleat down the front like these.

It's almost as if the designers went though old Vogue, Butterick and McCall's pattern books (or my box of old patterns!).

I used to sew many of those 'shift' types of dresses.

 

Easy to sew, as I recall.

 

Also, I love anything high waist, without too much volume.

Straighter leg pants appeal to me.

 

But, 'back in the day' (so to speak), I wore a lot of wide leg pants and suits.  Loved them.

p.s.  The more I view Number 2, the more I like that look!  

 

Easy styling, comfortable.

Also, #7 and #9 are "me", except I would wear indigo or black jeans.

The skirt in #2 and outfit in #6  are stand outs for me. I also like the appeal of the blouses in 7 and 8.  I enjoyed your comparison of the pose in number 13 a and b, funny!!!!!
