More shots in Brooklyn, please!
June 2, 2009 at 9:25 am
Love the simplicity of this outfit, perfect!
June 2, 2009 at 9:30 am
Like they always say, a tree (and this lovely flower in front of us) grows in Brooklyn
June 2, 2009 at 9:31 am
I am in love with the peace sign, I´ve got to get me one of those :)
Very pretty picture!
June 2, 2009 at 9:35 am
simple and clean but still gets the personality across.
June 2, 2009 at 9:47 am
Nice Dress! and her sandals too
June 2, 2009 at 9:48 am
Ah, simple & beautiful…love this pic! xx
June 2, 2009 at 9:49 am
she’s lovely but i love even more the jars filled with candy behind her in that window display…makes this pic look a little bit more mysterious ….Dominica
June 2, 2009 at 9:50 am
nice, i love the top-converted-to-dress =]but i think it’ll be even more striking if there’s white casual shorts peeking out as well?
June 2, 2009 at 9:53 am
absolutely stunning! the light, the outfit, the girl, the expression. So serene.
June 2, 2009 at 9:58 am
June 2, 2009 at 10:01 am
She looks perfectly lovely. The peace-sign necklace looks great with that dress and her simple flat sandals complete the outfit. Effortless chic.
June 2, 2009 at 10:05 am
i like it! so beautiful, simple and relaxed … i like her necklace too . :)
June 2, 2009 at 10:06 am
Love it.. So simple and cute:)

Stylish and functional, just perfect for a Tuesday morning.Love her presence!
Simple yet beautiful. She knows her “look” well.
June 2, 2009 at 10:11 am
so simple. so beautiful.
June 2, 2009 at 10:16 am
never underestimate the power of stylish simplicity. monochrome dressing in a simple silhouette plus a statement piece (her necklace) equals perfection!
without the necklace, the ensemble might be too plain.
she’s got it figured out!
June 2, 2009 at 10:19 am
…Peace & Love
June 2, 2009 at 10:21 am
Since her shoulders are so broad I don’t know if this is exactly the right look. I do love the accessories though!
June 2, 2009 at 10:25 am
innocent look yet very beautiful. love it
June 2, 2009 at 10:27 am
I’m loving her necklace!
she is beautiful!
June 2, 2009 at 10:28 am
Nice picture <33
June 2, 2009 at 10:29 am
the photo is amazing!she is so natural and such a model at the same time!
June 2, 2009 at 10:31 am
amazing legs. over suede fringe.
Oh Dear Charlotte
June 2, 2009 at 10:35 am
loooooooooove this shade on her skin tone!!!!
June 2, 2009 at 10:36 am
Yes a pretty girl, well put together, simple composition and interesting scenery. But what of those yellow hammer pants in the background? Did you try to catch him too or did he happen by?
June 2, 2009 at 10:46 am
The colour composition carried by the morning light is absolutely gorgeous. She’s soft and fresh – the rock candies are waiting…
June 2, 2009 at 10:50 am
Lovely shot. The jars in the window add a lovely bit of detailed interest to the overall composition. And she is lovely – her ease really completes the photo

June 2, 2009 at 11:12 am
The jars with what look like bars of soap in them REALLY make this shot fantastic, love this!

June 2, 2009 at 11:24 am
i love the simplicity of it all. very pretty.
June 2, 2009 at 11:35 am
Love the candy jars.
June 2, 2009 at 11:39 am
she looks great.. but the guy with the yellow pants in the background kinda steals her thunder, i want to see his outfit up close too!
June 2, 2009 at 11:45 am
I just love effortless chic looks!
Terrific photo.Lovely girl. The sunlight in the shopwindow on the colorful jars – very interesting and evocative!You are a very good photographer.I like it when your personal comments accompany the shots.
June 2, 2009 at 11:47 am
She’s lovely, but I think it’s the whole photo I love more than just the outfit.
Peace sign, Roman sandals, shapeless dress…way to Mary Kate & Ashley for me.
June 2, 2009 at 11:53 am
That’s my former high school(Brooklyn Tech) in the background, and one of my favorite stores, Carol’s Daughter, to the side. Go BK!

June 2, 2009 at 11:54 am
I have those exact-same sandals :) cute outfit!!
June 2, 2009 at 11:56 am
i hope velvet chokers are right behind the peace jewellery.. like actually.
June 2, 2009 at 12:15 pm
Absolutely stunning photo. I think I like the photo itself better than what she’s wearing…although I do like her sandals. She appears very calm.
June 2, 2009 at 12:21 pm
simple and pretty. peace signs always add a nice detail
thimbles and gingham
June 2, 2009 at 12:24 pm
she looks simple and fresh. i love her shoes.
June 2, 2009 at 12:26 pm
I never commented here, no matter how much I loved the people, the shot, or the outfit. but this time, I find the person, the outfit, the photo, the background, all, stunning. I’m just in love right now.
June 2, 2009 at 12:47 pm
Am I the only one who finds it funny when people pose at attention for these photos?
June 2, 2009 at 12:48 pm
I’ve got that dress but not those legs. She’s pretty. Nice shot too – love the light and location.

Both timeless and of the moment. Pretty girl, perfectly attired, captured in a super shot.

Good picture. With the sun coming from behind.
June 2, 2009 at 1:39 pm
Love the photo,backdrop of sweet shop is cool,plus I want that necklace! Thanks,your photos are amazing
June 2, 2009 at 1:41 pm
YES! you are shooting in brooklyn. fort greene, my home, one of the best neighborhoods in new york.
she looks RADIANT. and somehow, you get catch an authentic glimpse of the uniqueness and quirkiness of this part of town.
June 2, 2009 at 1:58 pm
Beautiful, besides the incredible young lady: the neighbourhood, the light, the shopwindow…
June 2, 2009 at 2:01 pm
Brooklyn stand up! Lovely…all around…! As noted above: more BKLYN pics, please!
June 2, 2009 at 2:52 pm
The lighting in this picture is magical like she is from a fairy tale, a Brooklyn fairy tale…the composition is great too.
Love your photos!

the light the light the light the LIGHT!ack.it’s gorgeous.
she is adorable.
laid back comfy chic.love it.:)
June 2, 2009 at 4:46 pm
pREtty… beautiful composure… but the sweetie jars, smudged windows and the yellow trousered billy paul cruiser in the background are what really do it for me
June 2, 2009 at 4:50 pm
This is wonderful. She’s somberly beautiful and strong, and I love the milieu with the painterly light on that wonderful window.
June 2, 2009 at 5:08 pm
Oh, I used to have one of those peace-sign necklaces! I don’t know where it is now, and I miss it a lot!!
June 2, 2009 at 5:16 pm
More Brooklyn! There are so many lovely people in my wonderful neighborhood of Fort Greene!
June 2, 2009 at 5:22 pm
she is simply beautiful.
great shot – i like the back lighting.
the whole image is very real, but yet very magical.
really nice aesthetic.

June 2, 2009 at 5:41 pm
I usually like dresses like this but for some really I don’t like this at all. Maybe it’s the color or maybe I wish she had on a belt or perhaps her hair could be down. Idk it just looks unfinished to me.
June 2, 2009 at 6:09 pm
bello e semplice..perfetto!!Elena
June 2, 2009 at 6:19 pm
Oh I have those sandals and adore them, however, the outfit doesn’t really inspire me.
Beautiful, I love the girl, the location and the light!
June 2, 2009 at 6:35 pm
Gorgeous! And what a great picture.
June 2, 2009 at 6:38 pm
Very cute, but the dude in the background with the yellow trousers – that’s what’s up!
June 2, 2009 at 7:30 pm
lovely pic, is so simply
June 2, 2009 at 7:38 pm
this girl is gorgeous and so gracefulthe light is amazingthe result= magical
June 2, 2009 at 7:41 pm
Nice! Finally! Please continue on with shots of people like this. Very graceful and harmonious.
June 2, 2009 at 8:08 pm
i love the necklace and the shoes. the dress colour is amazing, but i think there is a little disconnect between the accessories and the dress. maybe its the shoulders. but girlfriend is beautiful and the lighting is stunning. it works.
Rowdy and Chic...
June 2, 2009 at 8:11 pm
Look at the sunlight behind her and all of the colors around her. It brings to life the simplicity of her pose and outfit… beautiful and natural!
June 2, 2009 at 8:18 pm
It’s a beautiful shot. The tunic is nice but it needs shorts or pants. Not a fan of the peace sign necklace.
June 2, 2009 at 8:40 pm
I love the feel of this picture! Late afternoon; lazy summer day . . . her shadow moving on the pavement; the light magnifying every imperfection on the antique window displaying old fashioned candy jars. And her . . . simple and serene; intently looking at you . . .Fantastic Sart!
June 2, 2009 at 8:43 pm
i love this pic and i LOVE that you are in Brooklyn– especially in Ft. Greene as opposed to Williamsburg or something. What a great, great neighborhood and a really great picture. Keep ‘em coming! and to the comment of the jars of candy; I’m pretty sure that is soap in those jars from Carol’s Daughter.
love the lighting.
June 2, 2009 at 8:51 pm
i love the lighting and background!
June 2, 2009 at 9:29 pm
Oh my goodness, what beautiful light. It warms my heart.
June 2, 2009 at 9:36 pm
very natural it compliments the dress, accessories and the sandals.

June 2, 2009 at 9:41 pm
Stylishly simple! I love it. Come to Brooklyn more often. Oh, and let's not ignore the man in the lime green pants in the background, awesome.
June 2, 2009 at 9:43 pm
I feel like lately I'm seeing looks on here that have a more "trendy" vibe. This photo is STUNNING, but from a style standpoint it makes me feel similar to the recent Sao Paolo pic with the flannel shirt dress…very cute, nice and simple, but much less intriguing than the usual Sart fare – anyone could put it together. I like simple, but simple can still be fascinating, and this doesn't really do that.
June 2, 2009 at 9:48 pm
I see an echo…. her strong shoulders and the straight (shapeless) silhouette of the dress echoed in the candy jars in the window… A beautiful woman who unfortunately looks unfinished and boxy here, a little heel or a little legging could have saved the moment.
June 2, 2009 at 10:18 pm
i'm so glad you're exploring more areas of nyc! i mean i love soho…but this is nice…and there is good style on the upper east…just saying!
June 2, 2009 at 10:29 pm
June 2, 2009 at 10:32 pm
this 'tenda roni' looks like she has fallen into the 1989 streets of Brooklyn. The man behind her is well suited for a Bobby Brown video, the bright sun-rayed leaves remind me of my 'back to school' days in junior school, and the red, exposed brick with the stained window glass just top it right off.
"The truth about Roni, she’s a sweet little girlYou could treat her real nice and hold her tightOnly tender ronis can give special loveA special kind of love that makes you feel good inside."
June 2, 2009 at 11:26 pm
come back to fort greene!(this was shot outside carols daughter by brooklyn tech hs)
June 2, 2009 at 11:33 pm

Everytime you go to Brooklyn you do this….I think you should go there more often…just sayin…
The girl, the outfit, the shot are simple and beautiful…Simply Beautiful

Great shot, but that guy in the back seems pretty cool too.
June 3, 2009 at 1:37 am
The girl is beautiful; I love her peace sign necklace =)
June 3, 2009 at 2:41 am
would love to see more style shots in brooklyn…what a great spot! and what a great shot!
June 3, 2009 at 3:31 am
this is such a beautiful shot, and a gorgeous summer outfit!
June 3, 2009 at 4:15 am
Ultra- short but so simple and classy. Beautiful Balmain inspired flat sandals, such a hot trend.Love the peace sign, gives it a personal touch.Love it all.
June 3, 2009 at 4:59 am
the shoulders. i love them
June 3, 2009 at 5:20 am
Where's her bag/stuff?
June 3, 2009 at 6:19 am
It's kinda neo-neo-neo-sloppy hippie.
June 3, 2009 at 6:24 am
simple but with a bohemic touch – bellissima!
June 3, 2009 at 6:25 am
she is great.. simply but greta… but I am agreed with many others… the yellow pans man in the back should appear soon here;-)

I really love you photos S!! And the outfit on this girl is so simple and sweet. And I love the peace necklace. Have a wonderful day! :)
June 3, 2009 at 7:14 am
I rarely comment on this blog (it all feels so… adoring), but this is a truly beautiful photo. Someone asked if the guy in the yellow pants is 'intentional' – probably not, it doesn't feel posed, but that's what makes the shot.
I agree with Ashley: it's the photo itself, more than the elements of her outfit (altho it's all very nice) – it's the way she's standing so serious yet serenely, and then your eye goes to the light in the tree and the yellow in his trousers and the line of whatever it is in the jars.. and comes back to this mysterious girl, in the center. Timeless. It's part posed, true, but it's also the magical accident of chance.
June 3, 2009 at 7:42 am
Finally you come to my neighborhood! There are so many fashion forward people here – welcome!

June 3, 2009 at 9:20 am
You should do more shots in Brooklyn. We have such stylish gals and guys.
June 3, 2009 at 9:51 am
this shot is beautiful b/c of the light, but the woman's ensemble itself is hohum and not inspiring to me.
go down to Red Hook…still in Bkln to satisfy the peeps who want Bklyn shots – but more 'underground'/ progressive and less like a wannabe williamsburg. i bet you'll find a truly inspirational shot or two there.
June 3, 2009 at 10:10 am
Wow, what a beautiful picture – really Hopper'esque!
June 3, 2009 at 10:14 am
This is incredibly well done, both from her end as well as Sart's ability to work with the light; harsh as it was. This is probably one of my favorite photos. Simply beautiful.
June 3, 2009 at 10:17 am
great! love the shot, too.
June 3, 2009 at 10:57 am
beautiful shot, great perspective & light
June 3, 2009 at 11:31 am
she is gorgeous, the light is gorgeous…dont like her outfit though…suede fringe,long necklace..its very mmmeh
June 3, 2009 at 11:32 am
love this lighting. more shots in brooklyn please =)

June 3, 2009 at 12:25 pm
Wow. I live in the Fort Greene area of Brooklyn. I wish I ran into more women like her on my daily travels around the neighborhood :o)
Maybe there's an unexplored business model for you – a kind of dating site, featuring the people you shoot. "If you'd like to contact Sheri, click here now" or something like that.
I kid, I kid…
June 3, 2009 at 1:49 pm
very brooklyn :)
June 3, 2009 at 8:34 pm
beautiful picture (and beautiful girl), but i don't see what's so special about her outfit.
June 3, 2009 at 8:51 pm
why is everyone going ga-ga over this outfit? The dress is an awkward shape and those peace sign necklaces are sold everywhere…
if there's anything to love about this photograph, it's the photograph itself. the lighting is phenomenal, and love the soap jars in the background. the girl, despite her outfit, is beautiful.
June 3, 2009 at 11:55 pm
boring…she looks like every sorority girl on a college campus

Pocahontas – a beautyful shot. Love the light.
June 4, 2009 at 8:23 am
I have to agree. The girl, and the photo are beautiful. But don't you find the baggy boxy dress with gladiator sandals is just getting kind of cliche?
June 4, 2009 at 9:12 am
Looks like an angel

gorgeous oufit, loving it
June 4, 2009 at 3:57 pm
every girl at my school dresses like this. gladiators, tent dress, statement necklace.
that being said, the lighting and composition of this photograph are breathtaking.
June 4, 2009 at 6:06 pm
this outfit is too simple, a scarf would have gone well with it to add some color.
June 4, 2009 at 8:02 pm
Don't commodify peace.

that necklace just makes the outfit. i love it.http://www.thevestimaniac.blogspot.com

Two words, Satorialist. BEAUTIFUL LIGHTING. I love light, and how it affects things and falls on different objects… mmm.

Great photo, I love Fort Greene! This is by Carol's Daughter by Fort Greene Park. She is BEAUTIFUL!
June 8, 2009 at 6:48 pm
the saying cloths don't make the man/woman applies here. What makes it interesting isn't so much what she's wearing, but how the lady comes across in it.
June 9, 2009 at 5:37 pm
It's very much a Lisa/Zoe Bonet outfit. And it seems to fit this lass just fine!
June 10, 2009 at 2:41 pm
Nice, but this look always reminds me of a woman wearing one of my shirts (mans shirt) around the house. Like she's trying to be casual and a bit sexy. Appropriate for the apartment, not so much for the street. But then, I'm a bit of a prude I suppose.
June 10, 2009 at 10:39 pm
lady peace standing in the shadows of a setting sun.
June 12, 2009 at 10:53 pm
I believe peace signs are getting a little overrated now days.(especially target and walmart known for thinking peace signs are mercedes benz signs?)
great capture of simplicity though:)
June 14, 2009 at 10:26 am
i like this photo.i also like the dress. is that from bcbg ?
July 12, 2009 at 3:48 am
You can get a sleeveless dress with the same color/cut/texture from Old Navy. Mine was like $10 on sale.
July 12, 2009 at 9:44 am
the photo is so natural and give the beauty to its background.
July 16, 2009 at 11:12 pm
I agree, with Nora, more in Brooklyn, especially in Fort Greene/Clinton Hill, the lightening at dusk is always lovely…and the store behind the woman is Carol's Daughter…well the original. Wonderful wonderful products for anyone who loves things that smell good and to have those smells on them…and it just so happens that my Mom's friend started the place in her brownstone basement…its a wonderful place to shop, highly recommend.
August 26, 2009 at 1:53 pm
absolutely stunning, but yet so simple. Thnx to the designer.
October 30, 2009 at 1:54 pm
I am always impressed at the simple and elegant composition of Scott's pictures. Bravo.
May 16, 2010 at 9:19 am
Ahhhh Brooklyn-I miss it so. This is a lovely picture. I was born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island but BK was my stomping grounds. I loved and still love the different looks-culture. I am now here in Charlotte, NC. I used to sit outside my friends shop which used to be on Vanderbilt at times and just conversate and people watch.
August 4, 2010 at 6:48 pm
the light is just beautiful.. it just captures the feel of the day and highlights the surroundings in a magical way. love the candyshop(!?)
