Style-Diet Shot – Anita matching foliage

 – Thomas Jefferson

I can’t believe the shades of auburns and greens this fall.  Is it always like this?  Helps when Anita is wearing a vintage dress with mandarin collar.  I like the way she’s tied the belt up high.  And the fact that it’s a leather belt un-matching.
