very very very cute and laid-back… but beige sandals with white socks? ewww.
May 1, 2009 at 9:10 am
i don’t get it. i live in sydney and i hardly EVER see people who dress like this.
May 1, 2009 at 9:13 am
beautiful. love those shades of blue and perfectly combined with those nude coloured shoes.
May 1, 2009 at 9:18 am
I think she has great hair and a lovely expression on her face. The shoes are fine with me, but the socks are..not good^^just my opinion!
May 1, 2009 at 9:21 am
She is so beautiful! I really love her hair!
May 1, 2009 at 9:24 am
lovely tres tres chic. love the socks with the shoe
May 1, 2009 at 9:26 am
Love it from the ankles up. Unless she has just had ingrown toenails removed there is no excuse for doing that to your feet.
May 1, 2009 at 9:31 am
She looks young and very lovely. I love the way her head is tilted.
May 1, 2009 at 9:32 am
May 1, 2009 at 9:34 am
she is a beautiful girl and i love the colors and proportions of everything. however, the sandal and sock combination… not so sure about. i think maybe if the socks and the sandals were of a darker hue, it would complement the rest of her look.
i also love that she is petite and not absurdly thin and model-like. i have similar proportions and its nice to see what would/would not work. sart, please feature more petite/curvy fashionistas!
May 1, 2009 at 9:35 am
O man, so cute! It almost looks like a uniform or something… Love it.
May 1, 2009 at 9:39 am
She’s so pretty! I love her hair!
May 1, 2009 at 9:41 am
May 1, 2009 at 9:48 am
What a way to start a morning! I love this, the shies and socks are both neutral and shes got em rolled down to finish the quirk off… i like it here.
One would call this love at first sight and i am on the next plane to sydney
May 1, 2009 at 9:51 am
Sigh. I know socks and sandals are cool according to some designers but they really don’t do it for me… oh well, at least they’re not knee highs. However, it’s good to see a petite girl who doesn’t feel like she has to wear ankle-breaking heels to create a cute outfit. And the hair, it goes without saying, is fab.
May 1, 2009 at 10:12 am
It’s funny, yesterday you posted this androgyn chic and my verdict was like it is just provincial.
Here we have the opposite: you can put this young woman in every setting and time and it simply looks adorable and effortless. She could also be on horseback and still look like the woman of fashion. The colours are well-matched – this is no monotony, which one could think at a first appearance, it’s more gentle’n playful. However, Im not sure what to think of the shoes and socks, but I guess, this is really a lovely solution – it’s prankish, kind of pally, but still worn by the one, you’re secretly in love with.
May 1, 2009 at 10:13 am
her number please, come on Sart!
May 1, 2009 at 10:14 am
I like how the young residents of Sydney seem to have their quirk on. Good–though not outrageous–expressions of individuality, as in this girl’s sock/shoe combo with what looks like a school uniform.
May 1, 2009 at 10:19 am
I love how muted the colors are. Just adorable on her.
May 1, 2009 at 10:28 am
hah! nadia! brisbane reppin it. one of the nicest people i know, for anyone’s info
May 1, 2009 at 10:29 am
It does look like a uniform! I used to roll my socks like that too back in 2nd grade.
May 1, 2009 at 10:34 am
i live in perth, i visit sydney and melbourne but i don’t often spot these stylish people. you have a good eye!
May 1, 2009 at 10:40 am
I used roll down my socks in elem. I still think about doing it once in awhile just “for fun”… but feel dorky. looks cute on her tho!
May 1, 2009 at 10:42 am
what’s with the socks?
May 1, 2009 at 11:06 am
She is a gorgeous girl and I LOVE her hairstyle but she truly looks like has rolled off the North Shore train line on her way to one of the myriad of wanky private schools littering Sydney. Wanna be Gossip Girl.
May 1, 2009 at 11:26 am
Nadia is adorable…good to see Brisbane fashion taking over Sydney.
the sandal and sock combo really gives this look a unique edge.
May 1, 2009 at 11:27 am
May 1, 2009 at 11:32 am
…meh. thinking that the blues clash and the socks and shoes, although interesting, are more granny than girl about town.
she wore them again today with a colourful floral skirt and the look was a lot cuter. this just looks wrong, like… well, my old school uniform.
May 1, 2009 at 11:54 am
She’s gorgeous, LOVE the hair!! I want those beachy/seaside waves on my hair too! I think the shoes and socks are a cheeky and playful statement, and those legs! But… is it just me? or the colour on the legs doesn’t match the one on the collar or face…?
May 1, 2009 at 12:00 pm
shoes and socks are great!!!!
May 1, 2009 at 12:01 pm
shoes and socks are really great!!!
May 1, 2009 at 12:22 pm
She’s adorable, making everything she’s wearing adorable!
May 1, 2009 at 12:33 pm
she’s so cute! i certainly didn’t have that sense of style when i was her age, if i’m guessing her age correctly :)
her socks with sandals combo is risky, but she looks so comfortable that i’d say it works for her. it almost looks like an ankle bootie the way she styled it.
May 1, 2009 at 12:39 pm
cute from the shoulders up
May 1, 2009 at 12:41 pm
Is it birkenstocks with socks??
May 1, 2009 at 12:51 pm
She is absurdly cute. Her hair is adorable. I think the socks are odd but a really great touch to make this outfit slightly off-beat.
I think she’s one of the cutest yet, frankly. And I completely agree w/ a previous comment: I appreciate a shorter figure…
May 1, 2009 at 12:57 pm
May 1, 2009 at 12:58 pm
Thumbs up for rolled down socks! How to make a pair of knee highs into ankle socks on the Q-T!
May 1, 2009 at 1:11 pm
A real cutie pie, but socks with sandals?
May 1, 2009 at 1:21 pm
can’t look at those socks..
May 1, 2009 at 1:22 pm
NADIA!! Rocking the scene…(went to high school with this girl)
May 1, 2009 at 1:44 pm
nice style. The blue blazer is adorable.
May 1, 2009 at 1:47 pm
Somebody used the term “fashionista” to describe her. So absurdly out of place from my perspective (but maybe it’s because I just hate that overused term).
May 1, 2009 at 2:31 pm
love the look except the shoes + socks , uh !
May 1, 2009 at 2:35 pm
She is so beauty, I love her,I’m in love…. I must to go to Sidney.
May 1, 2009 at 2:36 pm
perfect from the neck up. She is adorable in spite of her clothes.
May 1, 2009 at 2:41 pm
The socks with the sandals are really bad. Reminds me of my late grandmother who wore nylons with her house shoes, rolled down just like this, and a house dress. ICK.
May 1, 2009 at 3:13 pm
fresh and cute
May 1, 2009 at 3:15 pm
Would look drab on anyone else but here. Socks were wrong.
May 1, 2009 at 3:20 pm
dont adore the outfit but love the model. she’s so cute and look pret.(my English sucks).
May 1, 2009 at 3:22 pm
She looks great, including the shoes and socks.
I’m often surprised by the narrow acceptance span commenters have for choices that they wouldn’t make themselves.
May 1, 2009 at 3:27 pm
She is gorgeous and has incredible hair and her outfit is adorable, but I’m slightly horrified by the weird beige sandal and rolled sock combo. Is that something they do in Sydney? I know my 90 year old grandpa used to…
May 1, 2009 at 3:35 pm
nice male blazer. but blazer too long for her short stature
May 1, 2009 at 3:38 pm
Love the boyfriend blazer look thats going on right now! So accessible and affordable
May 1, 2009 at 3:45 pm
WOW, could this girl get any cuter? oh i believe im in love, to bad she’s in sidney, any1 got her email :D
Damn’s shes cute
May 1, 2009 at 4:05 pm
supercute,and really great to see someone lookin this adorable who isnt supertall/long limbs/modelesque but still mindblowing in her own way: more petit women here, s´il vous plait.
May 1, 2009 at 4:42 pm
looooove it except for those white (is it even white?? more like gray..)socksand the beige sandals..
simple black flats would’ve been much nicer
May 1, 2009 at 4:53 pm
I love the sock/shoe combo!! I doubt it will ever “catch on” in the U.S., but I wish it would. I could totally rock that look, as I am a “sockaholic”!Enough already with the “Grandpa” comments!!!
May 1, 2009 at 4:59 pm
Aussie girls are just too cute.
May 1, 2009 at 5:14 pm
that is cute. so laid back, but really cool.but drop the socks
What's On The Outside...
May 1, 2009 at 5:20 pm
So simple and fun. I love it. What’s with the socks with sandals trend though… It’s slowly creeping up!
May 1, 2009 at 5:28 pm
It’s the hair that makes it.
May 1, 2009 at 5:39 pm
Beautiful girl & nice outfit !!
May 1, 2009 at 5:49 pm
i love all these posts u have put up on people u have seen in australia. they’re all amazing i just can’t believe the fact that i have never seen anyone dress this well in oz before :D
May 1, 2009 at 6:11 pm
Sorry I dont like this one.
May 1, 2009 at 6:43 pm
The socks are cute – the outfit needs that little quirkiness and I think it works well. Sydney-siders have an aversion to sock and sandals that goes way back. Maybe we need to get over that.
May 1, 2009 at 7:06 pm
I don’t like the socks but I love her smile and the blazer.
May 1, 2009 at 7:22 pm
Such a cutie!
I’m a sock n sandal fan, too.
As long as I’ve been following this blog, I’ve never asked: Anyone know what sandals she’s wearing? I want them. We’re heading into Mojave Summer and I NEED them.
May 1, 2009 at 7:58 pm
I love her! She’s so classy but odd at the same time (socks + sandals?). I really love this photo; one of my favorites.
May 1, 2009 at 8:00 pm
she’s cute and thats an adorable look but I dont get the socks…that looks odd!
May 1, 2009 at 8:20 pm
It’s funny to hear all people’s comments about sydney private school fashion.. Nadia is a brisbane public school girl.. absolutely stunning and so lovely. you should make the trip up to brisbane sart, we have our fair share of stylish individuals.
May 1, 2009 at 8:41 pm
I LOVE NADIAAAA <3 best designer ever!bris not syd guys! BRISBANE style!

May 1, 2009 at 9:44 pm
Worst shoes ever, and the proportions aren’t so good for her height. I like the top half, but that’s about it.
May 1, 2009 at 11:24 pm
Sandals and socks? I don´t think so.
May 2, 2009 at 12:26 am
Blazer seems to be so in trend now isn’t it? :))
Why is she wearing socks with open-toe shoes anyway?? She looks like a secretary who’d wear whatever shoes she have with socks because she’s been working in a air-conditioned environment for too long time and now just taking a walk and breathing fresh air during lunch. LOL
May 2, 2009 at 1:16 am
It’s funny how many people can’t spell Sydney!!!?? whats wrong with you?
May 2, 2009 at 2:02 am
I am a bit fond of an open toe shoe with chic socks or hosiery… but this!? Those socks look like a pair that were once white (about 12 years ago), but have since been washed with the colours. They need a good soak in a bucket of bleach and boiling water. And the shoes – they look like medicated orthopedics that you buy from the pharmacy! Credit where it’s due though : she does look sweet.
May 2, 2009 at 2:32 am
brisbane represent?? its about time!
she’s adorable :)
May 2, 2009 at 3:35 am
(Australian for extreme lack of irony in an old fashioned way.)
Poorly executed irony in the socks and sandal department too. Some points clawed back for her hairs.
She looks like a genuinely nice woman, however. Like a lot of Australian women. You can spot them, Sart.
May 2, 2009 at 5:20 am
Love the pic. Loathe the Style Nazis you attract …
May 2, 2009 at 7:25 am
The lenght of her shirt looks like she´s a tiny tiny cute girl.
May 3, 2009 at 6:37 am
I just discovered your site from my mum. Stunning. I’m addicted.

May 3, 2009 at 6:52 am
I was lucky enough to have been with Nadia that day and she received a fair share of compliments on my behalf! For what it’s worth, I really loved the socks and sandals combo, it was a nice change of pace from the fierce black platforms and boots that are so prevalent at Australian fashion events. Divine!
May 3, 2009 at 9:40 am
Up close…blarghhhhh. Much better from a distance, as in your photo Sart.
May 3, 2009 at 9:50 am
the 3 blues are perfect
May 3, 2009 at 10:15 am
could’ve been done with better socks and sandals
May 3, 2009 at 10:42 am
this girl is definite wife material. Her outfit is truly superb; APC resonates through, fantastic. All those haters who are cussing heel/sandal combo where have you been for two seasons?!
May 3, 2009 at 12:01 pm
love the jacket but that’s all, i do not like very much the socks with the sandals like Chloé Sevigny has worn!!
donna AND navaz
May 3, 2009 at 12:26 pm
Totally cute…don’t mind the socks!
May 3, 2009 at 2:11 pm
actually i do like the socks with the sandals. This whole picture is so cute.
May 3, 2009 at 2:19 pm
Very nice but sandals and socks ! why ?
May 3, 2009 at 7:53 pm
Great shot!Girl is reeaally cute :)Outfit is really nice too.
But no socks please ! You don’t want to look like german tourists in Barcelona when it’s July…
May 3, 2009 at 8:37 pm
I say why Not.. if you can pull it off – socks and sandals go for it .. I know I couldnt…Sydney has style.
May 3, 2009 at 9:20 pm
love the tone on tone, where have i seen her before new zealand?
May 3, 2009 at 9:21 pm
That looks like my school uniform, but I think it looks really good.
May 3, 2009 at 10:15 pm
Wow. [insert semi-inappropriate, admirative comment here] I need to move to Oz.
May 3, 2009 at 11:01 pm
@Fluttrgrl: If that’s a school uniform then good Lord, send me the enrollment papers!
May 3, 2009 at 11:19 pm
School uniform? I’m a bit confused…
May 4, 2009 at 1:34 am
adorable! tres chic!
May 4, 2009 at 2:39 am
very very nice and simple, but uniquely
May 4, 2009 at 3:02 am
i love the socks and shoes together… and she reminds me a little bit of emma watson!
May 4, 2009 at 4:00 am
looks like paddo to me, balmainers dont wear sandals and socks, which to me remind of some very daggy middle aged chinese women i encountered in rural chinese towns…but she is original! I would have preferred some white converse or something similar…maybe a espadrille a al 40s?
the blue on blue looks like vintage, but was prob very expensive!!
one needs to be oh so young and sweet to carry of this look and she does so brilliantly!
May 4, 2009 at 6:03 am
Love the sock and sandal combination. She really pulls it off.
May 4, 2009 at 6:47 am
Looks fabulous….except when you scan down and see the socks – such a shame
Beatrice H Groos
May 4, 2009 at 7:07 am
Does she seem extraordinarily short?
May 4, 2009 at 8:49 am
I love the sandals with the matching sand…
May 4, 2009 at 11:56 am
so Connecticut aloof, i like
May 4, 2009 at 4:35 pm
i don’t get this cute–hotel–concierge–meets–90-yr old–grandma look, but she seems to pull it off with absolute confidence. what a beautiful face.
May 4, 2009 at 4:46 pm
Why she remembers me to Emma Watson?
May 4, 2009 at 5:00 pm
an Annette Funicello for the new century. WOW!
May 4, 2009 at 5:44 pm
It sort of looks like it could actually be her school uniform , I wonder if it was? very stylish if it is her school uniform though.
May 4, 2009 at 7:47 pm
Great fashion sense! UNIQUE
May 5, 2009 at 1:38 am
Beautiful face but clothes????!!! Sorry not the best!!!
May 5, 2009 at 2:16 am
she is really pretty and the contrasting blues look great with the background. light is beautiful too but why her? the shoes are incredibly wrong and the whole outfit is all a bit average. there were so many better dressed people at fashion week??
May 5, 2009 at 3:02 am
To anyone who commented that they never notice like dressed people in Sydney – seriously, there are plenty of people if you are aware.Also she is obviously near the beach somewhere, you can tell by the bush in the background and the sand, so that might explain the sock and sandle ensemble
May 5, 2009 at 5:17 am
yay for Brisbane! And what is wrong with private school girls/school uniforms anyway?
May 5, 2009 at 5:20 am
Socks with sandals on the beach. Are you sure you are not in Germany? or perhaps she is a German tourist.
May 5, 2009 at 12:18 pm
She is so cute, you must have made her day by taking her picture!Don’t think I will ever see socks and sandals as a good look though…However apart from that she looks lovely.
May 5, 2009 at 9:44 pm
she makes this work in a way i don’t think anyone else could.
May 6, 2009 at 12:30 am
I know Nadia, she’s amazing – fashion designer, always looks gorgeous! i’m a fan of the socks and sandals – i wear them too. must be a Brisbane thing….
May 6, 2009 at 6:20 am
Little did I thought that I’d find a girl with socks under those shoes so beautiful !
thank you for what you do, I love that !!!!
Tiphaine from Mainchicavenue.blogspot.co !
à bientôt !
May 7, 2009 at 1:55 pm
I think I have that jacket
May 8, 2009 at 12:20 am
as a whole the entire look work. she’s adorable and can pull it off. alone however, the socks and sandals would likely not work. flats would have been too predictable. cute, but predictable. the socks and sandal add to her quirky adorable look.
May 8, 2009 at 5:55 am
I love this combination of jacket and shirt and even the socks and sandals work!

May 8, 2009 at 6:41 am
Really like your coverage of Australia & Scandinavia. Thanks for going beyond your usual fashion cities. Haven't been on your website in a very long time bc the Paris, London, NY looks were while very chic, but also starting to become predictable.

May 8, 2009 at 11:58 am
i love this! i like the socks with it
May 8, 2009 at 12:03 pm
is she hiding a beer…?!?
May 8, 2009 at 8:49 pm
can someone tell me who this girl is? or maybe someone i can get in contact with her? thanks
May 9, 2009 at 2:50 am
May 10, 2009 at 2:00 am
her socks with sandals combo is risky, but she looks so comfortable that i’d say it works for her. it almost looks like an ankle bootie the way she styled
May 10, 2009 at 5:43 am
I love her clothes !
May 10, 2009 at 3:18 pm
She is adorable! Love the contrast of the blazer and the laidback hair.
May 11, 2009 at 2:45 am
May 11, 2009 at 6:33 am
Wow, she’s so cute. I love her hair !!
May 11, 2009 at 9:57 am
god i want her..
May 11, 2009 at 12:12 pm
my fave! loved her pose. ohhhhh and she’s cute too!

May 12, 2009 at 6:09 pm
Love the hair! Her look is so “doux”, love it!
May 13, 2009 at 8:59 am
love the blazer.and she looks cute anyway. lol
May 13, 2009 at 1:04 pm
loved it! i just didn’t like the socks with this shoes but the erest is great
May 14, 2009 at 5:09 pm
I love how care-free yet very well orchestrated the outfit feels. I also love seeing personal style on women with similar petite body types like mine.
May 15, 2009 at 3:00 pm
She is so beautiful! I really love her smile! i dedicate million dollar on her smile….
May 17, 2009 at 2:25 pm
to reiterate the popular sentiment….
she is cute all over but the sandals with socks thing HAS TO GO!
its a look that my 66 year old father has a tough time pulling off.
May 18, 2009 at 2:04 am
its kinda school girly. but still very cute!
May 18, 2009 at 9:43 pm

May 19, 2009 at 7:51 am
Seems like a breezy girl.
She needs go on ahead with them gray socks though. If you’re gonna wear open toe footwear, you leave the toes…open!
June 4, 2009 at 2:32 am
Socks and sandals. Ew. Just no.
Otherwise she looks like the average schoolgirl.
June 18, 2009 at 8:18 pm
Nadia, looking good! in answer to a previous question, the reason why you never see people dressed like this in sydney, is because she is from brisbane… sartorialist come to brisbane!
August 29, 2009 at 10:22 pm
Nadia, what a surprise to find you in here! you look fantastic xoI'm going to claim this as Brisbane style!
October 10, 2009 at 4:08 pm
Im really not fund of the scandals and socks. But The overal clothing of the outfit is something i would wear on a day out, very formal and laid back.
January 8, 2010 at 5:55 am
I love Sydney.
January 30, 2010 at 4:46 am
Just beautiful. Love the socks/sandals combo
June 30, 2010 at 7:10 am
i think its just her natural beauty and a sweet spine-bending which brought her here. she could wear everything i guess.
July 15, 2018 at 6:19 am
Very useful article. Very interesting to read this article.I would like to thank you for the efforts you had made for writing this awesome article.
