Unique for sure.

Like a country girl , great !
September 20, 2010 at 7:51 am
It is the mood and the attitude I love about this look.. so vibrant!!!

Fabulous! I love how her clutch also has a tiny pattern in proportion to the rest of her checks!
September 20, 2010 at 7:58 am
I love it– it's Mary Kate Olsen as a square dancer. Perfect juxtaposition of the huge sunglasses and iphone with a dress her grandmother might have worn 50 years ago.
Did you two have fun in Georgia? Can't wait to see what you may have spied in Savannah!
September 20, 2010 at 7:59 am
this is the real courage!great personality, at least!
September 20, 2010 at 8:00 am
wow. a modern twist to square dancing! love it!
September 20, 2010 at 8:01 am
A little bit country and a little bit rock n roll ;-)

September 20, 2010 at 8:03 am
After all the fashion week photos this is a breath of fresh air, and even with them it is just perfectly brilliant and hilarious at the same time.
September 20, 2010 at 8:06 am
Love it! The dress.. divine!
September 20, 2010 at 8:12 am
oh she's so adorable!
September 20, 2010 at 8:13 am
Wow that is pretty nice outfit :D Quite brave!

The picture is a little amusing. Humorous even. She's like one of those nursery rhymes characters brought to life and left there to fend for herself.

nice! very original:)

she's a beauty
September 20, 2010 at 8:39 am
Seems a bit forced to be honest. I don't see any sane reason to wear that dress unless you're going to a hoedown, which she obviously isn't.
What we have here is good old fashioned irony, currently the trend among hipster folk – she's not a trend setter, just another hapless fashion victim of the decade
September 20, 2010 at 8:43 am
She really looks like a princess in that dress!!!
LITTLE FIVE POINTS YAAAAYYYYY!!
and I agree with someone just above me…aside from my love for the place, actually one of your top photos I think.

Fun to see, and different from the usual NYC street style. I wonder if she's garbed like that for a competition/exhibition, or just as a style statement.
The square dancing units in gym class would have been much more fun if we'd been able to wear these twirly skirts instead of our pleat-front jeans and white Keds! (Teenager of the 90s, here.)

hello cowgirl in the sandis this place at your command?
Love the belt, too.
September 20, 2010 at 10:00 am
sorry, to me this just looks terrible – the dress is wearing her, big time…and it is just not flattering to her in any sense – from skintone to her legs…I have to give her props for being so bold, no doubt about that and I love the hair and the shades too.
September 20, 2010 at 10:03 am
Love her right down to the side ponytail. The dress is so different and perfect for dancing. x
Dude, I WENT to L5P to see if I could find you! You had already left, I guess! This is right by Aurora Coffee.. .I recognize the trash can and post anywhere! Yes, it's a bit of a hipster/ironic fashion statement… I prefer some of the other stuff I see around L5P. Can't wait to see your other posts from ATL…
This put a smile on my face this morning! Thank you!
September 20, 2010 at 10:07 am
It was so great to see both you and Garance in Atlanta! This photograph is wonderful–I love the natural lighting reflecting off her golden locks.
I hope to see some magical shots from Savannah as well!
September 20, 2010 at 10:10 am
What a fabulous shot! Funny, when most of us look at black and symmetry in our style….just perfect….thanksL

you're so so great

September 20, 2010 at 10:13 am
This is Atlanta. People dress like this all of the time here… especially in VaHi and Little 5 (which is where this was taken). Nothing forced about it.
Thanks for visiting, SS. You're welcome back anytime.
September 20, 2010 at 10:18 am
Too much to be really wearable, but each one has different style.
September 20, 2010 at 10:19 am
Same vibe as the cosplay kids in Tokyo's Harajuku district. Not particulary country, definitely not Southern – but it is a hoot to read some of the impressions your readers have of life in the Deep South. Travel is the best educator, but you have to get off of the main road occasionally.

I grew up cloggin' and wearing outfits just like this. Not sure if she is really a clogger or square dancer, but growing up in a small town in South Carolina – this does not look at all forced. It looks like a weekend at the fair or local hoedown. This past weekend they held the Aynor hoedown in SC and I am sure you would have found many of these girls. The only difference would have been the shoes!
Thanks for reminding me of growing up in the South!

poooof! this is so adorable and uniqueee :D
kisses from the philippiness!!!!
September 20, 2010 at 10:33 am
Beautiful composition in this photo. Even the colours of some of the graffitti match/tone well with the colours of the dress. Like the juxtaposition of the vibrant, happy, fairytale outfit with the cool, no-nonsense pose + sunglasses and phone in the street setting. The boots are a good colour that complements her hair colour very nicely.

September 20, 2010 at 10:40 am
The juxtaposition is funny. My mac loaded the pic a little slow and all I could see at first was her head and the cell phone. Then I saw the rest of her outfit and it threw me for a loop.
So looks so interesting, unique and awesome!
September 20, 2010 at 10:41 am
September 20, 2010 at 10:45 am
What a wonderful composition – photography and outfit-wise.

Fun, exciting, and free. Makes me want to play. Warmly,Karen
September 20, 2010 at 10:50 am
I was looking at her watch and ring, worn on her pointer finger. I thought she looked pretty hip.
September 20, 2010 at 10:52 am
i love the graffiti and the vans sticker on the garbage can. You've all this contemporary stuff, then the girl's dress. cool.

The colors are wonderful, the lighting out of this World.Looks like she's into vintage, no doubt. Her belt is a great touch. Beautiful photograph Scott, morning light is the best.
Atlantans are so artistic and eclectic. I love this part of the South.
September 20, 2010 at 11:22 am
she looks like she is wearing a costume from a holliday here in Brazil.
Stunning A-line dress with playful petticoat.I just want to make her circle around. later, FashionLifeCoach

Original dress, she is so funny !
September 20, 2010 at 11:37 am
Love the flounce of her dress and her idea to pair a dress that's been boxed into a certain era with modern accessories in a mismatching style! Genius!
September 20, 2010 at 11:39 am
Don't you ALL realise that this is a dance COSTUME???!!!!! of course its COUNTRY -read the title -its for a square-dance! So if she were wearing a cowboy uniform from a Bar-B-Que restaurant everyone would think she is fashion-forward and bravely stylish? WOW. Great depth of field and lighting Sart.

September 20, 2010 at 1:15 pm
Wow, that anyone call pull that dress off is incredible. It's amazing how personality can come through so strongly in a dress .. I suppose a picture is worth a thousand words.

September 20, 2010 at 1:26 pm
I smiled at this! (I also thought – Lindsey Lohan???)I love how her attitude is not at all what you'd imagine when you think of square dancing. The accessories – hair, sunglasses, cellphone, clutch, the shoes – even the setting are a complete contrast to the dress! I just love it all! You are brilliant at capturing moments that are so significant and speak volumes about our current culture!

gingham,floral, large watch and glasses and best of all a HUGE full skirt. super look this look!
September 20, 2010 at 1:56 pm
To me it looks just too much. Would never ever wear that, unless as a costume. The colors are great, the proportion, the whole combination. But still looks like a costume.
September 20, 2010 at 2:17 pm
Sart is in the A! The dress and boots are killing it! Good job.
September 20, 2010 at 2:21 pm
looks like "alice in wonderland meets (insert country singer)". this look, to me, is almost not believable. although it is a breath of fresh air, it almost looks like a costume and tomorrow we'll see her dressed in casual wear.

She's flouncing her way into autumn. Ridiculously playful, hilariously girlish and comical.

September 20, 2010 at 2:45 pm
fabulous! this is why i check this site everyday, religiously, there is so much that is wonderful about this photo, from her attitude to the graffiti, and everything in between!!!
September 20, 2010 at 2:46 pm
LiLo!!! If only she stayed home and went to church like a good girl. And…took square dancing lessons instead of stripping. *sigh* Like the watch/sunglasses combo.

Well, for the Mean girls out there.
This is no costume. She is my Square Dance partner and G/F!!!

Now, if she was wearing Vans and balancing a skateboard…hmmm.
September 20, 2010 at 5:40 pm
She's not being ironic. She's lovely and probably likes where she lives and was bought up, as she should. She may be re-interpreting a traditional costume somewhat, but that doesn't mean she's being disdainful. She's local, without being provincial. There are so few southerners featured on here. I love it.
September 20, 2010 at 5:51 pm
ah, i love this. the composition of the photo is brilliant, and the ensemble is very unique. i do hope that you will post more savannah/atlanta pictures…
September 20, 2010 at 5:55 pm
Wow! I love this. It's kind of cartoonish and satirical, with elements at odds with one another (New Yorker in a square dancing dress?); but for me, it works! I find her 'gitup' quite appealing.

I (and most others) couldn't pull that off but she does!

I don't really like it. Its not that flattering. The boots make her legs look funny. The dress itself is nice, and so are the glasses but the boots kill it.

I thought the same thing, Lohan…Love the graff on the pole and the Vans advertising, such a quirky shot.
September 21, 2010 at 12:09 am
this shot is fantastic…It's great how she looks so country but the background in the photo is so urban. I love when fashion conflicts with its surroundings, outfits stand out more. The girl in this shot is the 'case in point.'

How she pulls that off is beyond me, but heck, she looks good.
September 21, 2010 at 1:44 pm
listen, just because you slaves to fashion can't imagine yourselves wearing anything that isn't tailored and black doesn't mean that this lady's dress isn't stylish in its own way. this girl is wearing what she likes, and wearing it well (in my opinion). everyone's definition of style is different, just because it's not something you can imagine yourself in doesn't mean it's "forced" or "too much". heaven forbid a person has such a vibrant personality that they can't hide it behind "trendy" and expected clothing.
September 21, 2010 at 2:20 pm
LP5!! I don't agree with a lot of the above comments, many people dress like this around Little 5 Points and VaHi, she looks great!

She appears so comfortable in this getup- love it!
September 22, 2010 at 1:58 am
I'm sorry, but although the majority of these comments are in favor of this…um…"outfit", I just have to say that I think it's god awful ugly. But, if she feels beautiful in it, then good for her. Fashion should make you feel good. :)
September 22, 2010 at 8:55 am
Wow. I lived there for 30+ years and would never have found this. You certainly nailed it. Feels good to see this from so far away.
September 22, 2010 at 8:56 am
Love it all. Her dress would make want to meet her.

September 22, 2010 at 10:22 pm
Oh, I love this! even though I don't square dace, I would love to wear it!http://lnaloft.blogspot.com/
September 23, 2010 at 10:31 am
Wow! It's amazing, seems exit by a cartoon! I will gladly wear a dress like that, just to go out for shopping. I think that the world must live on this way: with no rules of dress, without prejudice, but unfortunately there are still people who say you're crazy. But we must go beyond the trial, and appear to be what you want and it is!
September 23, 2010 at 11:56 pm
great shot. Coincidentally snapped in front of one of the top spots in ATL to grab coffee & a bagel?…Mr. NY, I think not. Good find on the the young square dancer & Aurora Coffee. Salud.

what sells the whole outfit is the attitude. just look at the gorgeous facial expression…says “i know i look good and if you don’t so what!!!” amazing situation. great shot.
