Good F’n job on this. She is fabulous. I love everything about her look.. Her hair, hat, jacket, scarf, bag…those shoes! And her necklaces. I think I’ll have to try and pull off a mens version of her look. I love this soooo much!
December 11, 2008 at 11:38 am
she REALLY knows how to accessorize well! i’d die for that clutch!
Amazing, everything works here, great bag and jewellery.
December 11, 2008 at 11:44 am
even though there’s a lot going on here….i like her style. she’s cute.
December 11, 2008 at 11:46 am
This, to me, captures everything that makes French ‘personal’ style so great. Head to toe…
December 11, 2008 at 11:49 am
Regardless of the many details that can be analyzed and admired, this seems to be a brilliant example of an ensemble fusing with her character, rather than just a set of clothes and accessories that she is wearing. Very well done.
December 11, 2008 at 11:51 am
Head to toe…absolute perfection! Très charmante!!
December 11, 2008 at 12:16 pm
Wow, wow, wow!!
December 11, 2008 at 12:22 pm
Her shoes- and hat .lovelY. and her bag. yummie
December 11, 2008 at 12:23 pm
If anyone owns boots like that, do not leave them unsupervised in my presence! I will totally snatch them.
I love how everything isn’t so matchy matchy, but when put together like this, it just works.
Layering of necklaces gives it such depth.
December 11, 2008 at 12:25 pm
well more plum than raspberry no? Anyhoo great outfit – I do like those little boots, and the grey on grey with navy. Girl should stand up though, no?
i am having trouble navigating the waters between bohemian and classic, and she absolutely nails it. fantastic, tailored shapes mixed with flowy bohemian details–problem solved! =)
December 11, 2008 at 12:26 pm
Love the look..painting the bag raspberry to match the hat…
December 11, 2008 at 12:28 pm
THAT JACKET! Double breasted and a perfect 3/4 or 2/3 sleeve. Styled with the gloves is perfect. She also took a perfect minimalistic though classy dress.

AH! Perfection. I can’t wait to move to Paris (1.5 years left to go!)
SOOO much style in that city.
December 11, 2008 at 12:45 pm
oh she's EXCELLENT ♥ x 1000
Everything looks great (especially those boots) except the scarf… There has to be a bohemian style scarf beyond the damned kaffiyeh. I’m tired of seeing them.
December 11, 2008 at 12:50 pm
Long gloves extend the season on 3/4 length sleeves beautifully!
December 11, 2008 at 12:57 pm
December 11, 2008 at 1:11 pm
except i dont think it’s a keffiyeh.

Great style. Amazingly beautiful face. I just fell in love with her.

Kelly you are so freaking cute. talk about perfect style. I knew it was you right when I saw the picture and messaged erin!
yall both know how to accessorize. fabulous.
December 11, 2008 at 1:46 pm
who makes those boots?
December 11, 2008 at 1:59 pm
Great look – Sophie Dahl kinda-looking…love the chocolat-brown tights combination with the grey & darkblue…The waterfall of golden chains is the 'it' thing at the moment…Just perfect !!
December 11, 2008 at 2:27 pm
I am in love. The boots are great, but mostly I adore the long leather gloves! (Current Christmas wishlist!)
December 11, 2008 at 2:32 pm
this could be too much on some…but her style makes it fabulous! kisses from las vegas
December 11, 2008 at 2:45 pm
so french. so cute. so unexpected. i am inspired.
December 11, 2008 at 3:01 pm
would have been perfect without that scarf, it looks like a mix between a keffiyeh and a dish cloth
December 11, 2008 at 3:05 pm
I want to be her.
December 11, 2008 at 3:10 pm
…like the kind you find in a second hand store.
I love those boots!
December 11, 2008 at 3:28 pm
I really do love how everything works together although it seems too much. I do love her boots, it looks a lot like a pair I saw from the Alice+Olivia collection for payless. It might not be what she’s wearing, but it is VERY close.

the perfect grey!
December 11, 2008 at 4:22 pm
I love it. Where I live the cold weather fashion is jeans (mommy jeans…ugh!) running shoes and a sweat shirt…GAG ME! I don’t want to go out just so I don’t have to look at it.
This is perfect. Cold weather can be so elegant, with just a tad of an imagination.

Ah, the purple beret!!! My older sister made one, and wore it often. Her very rich classmates often asked to borrow it for their social get-togethers, and so it was a very successful accessory for more than one lovely girl. It is timeless if you can pull it off. Jorge from W Palm Beach
December 11, 2008 at 4:36 pm
Wow, what a stunning picture!I have been following your blog for a very long time now…and every picture is interesting, but sometimes there is just a picture which make you feel good for some reason. A picture like this for example!She actually reminds me of Keira Knightly.I love the gloves, the necklaces, the clutch, the length of her dress, the color combination, the ‘I have not thought about it (but I actually did)-look’…simply everything.
Thank you Sart.
December 11, 2008 at 4:44 pm
love the shoes!

December 11, 2008 at 5:00 pm
I could totally wear that outfit, love it, love it, love it! Could kill ti get it in my wardrobe^^
December 11, 2008 at 5:36 pm
That girl is what dreams are made of.
December 11, 2008 at 6:01 pm
She’s got the look: the kind of style and charm that can take the best designer piece, or the most unusual thrift-store find and completely make it her own. And she reminds me of the ethereal Michelle Pfeiffer– how perfect is that?!?!
December 11, 2008 at 6:02 pm
i love everything about this picture.
December 11, 2008 at 6:54 pm
Stylish and trendy. She is completely adorable, but I feel like I have seen this picture before.
December 11, 2008 at 7:02 pm
*dreamy sigh*… does anyone know where to get those boots and who makes them…?
December 11, 2008 at 7:22 pm
Where can I find a beret like or similar to that one?
December 11, 2008 at 7:35 pm
Showing why Parisian women are world-renowned for their style. The composition is also great — she’s literally standing out from the crowd.
I’d jump to lend her my coat because she looks like she’s shivering.
December 11, 2008 at 7:42 pm
I love how thin girls look so good with ankle boots!
December 11, 2008 at 8:12 pm
She looks so cute! those shoes are luscious.
December 11, 2008 at 8:25 pm
the boots & tights are wonderful wonderful wonderful
December 11, 2008 at 8:49 pm
I am getting serious deja-vu from this picture, especially the boots… I know I’ve seen her or a similar outfit before! Great shot regardless.
December 11, 2008 at 8:50 pm
fabulous.. i’ll be copying her look for sure!
December 11, 2008 at 9:29 pm
I absolutely adore this outfit and wish I’d thought it up myself. Regardless, I am saving this picture for fashion inspiration. Thanks!
December 11, 2008 at 9:41 pm
This is one of my all time favorites! Thanks Sart!
December 11, 2008 at 9:59 pm
so cute love the beret- just charming
December 11, 2008 at 10:29 pm
Am I the only one who sees 55 trends on this young lady? Beret, vaguely ethnic scarf, long gloves, booties, clutch…I could go on. Yet, she does indeed look great, maybe even archetypal of the times.
December 11, 2008 at 10:41 pm
this lady is amazing – she is able to wear so many of the great trends of the season – oversize clutch, layered necklace, scarf, booties – and look great. some people overdo the trends and it looks ridiculous, but she’s totally pulling it off.
December 11, 2008 at 11:04 pm
I love how everything just goes together on her, wonderful!
December 11, 2008 at 11:08 pm
Swap out the dress for skinnies and she’s wearing the exact same thing as every hipster kid on the West Coast…
December 11, 2008 at 11:30 pm
December 11, 2008 at 11:59 pm
I’m SO sick of those scarves, they’re everywhere and I would’ve liked the outfit so much better without it. But I loveee the shoes.
December 12, 2008 at 12:00 am
Wow! I just love this whole outfit, her accessories, hat, bag, scarf, and boots make the outfit so chic and unique. Also, I love that haircut. Touche.
December 12, 2008 at 12:26 am
those are definitely the alice and olivia booties for payless! why didn’t i get them when i saw them, she has styled them amazingly!
December 12, 2008 at 12:41 am
that’s fantastic. real personal style and just super well composed.
December 12, 2008 at 1:32 am
“The kind you find in a second hand store…”
I hope someone didn’t already say that.
Not a fan, sorry. She doesn’t look French to me. Her style is too calculated.
December 12, 2008 at 5:37 am
She looks stunning! Lovely shoes, beret, the bag, ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING IS AMAZING!Scott, that’s such a great choice!x
December 12, 2008 at 7:17 am
just great styling and i like the hair
December 12, 2008 at 8:19 am
they look almost identical to alice + olivia boots made for payless… i swear, so bizarre.
December 12, 2008 at 8:44 am
December 12, 2008 at 8:56 am
Met a girl one time in the same vein, her style was unique and she had the tendency to do things when you didn’t think she did. She had this infectious spontaneity one gets with a hat like that This photo brings back memories of fun days gone by with that one. Ah, memories…
Is it the kind u find in a second hand store?
Do you think if it was warm that she would wear much more?
Hmmm…that Raspberry Beret…I think I love…her.

December 12, 2008 at 9:11 am
I can only agree with most of the comments above. This looks like a very personally derived style. Her hair and earrings look great with her face. Proportionally I think the clutch looks a little too large (and hard to carry) but it’s a great color and texture. The scarf works here as a nice contrast to the smoother, simpler lines and textures of the dress, jacket and boots. Nice.
December 12, 2008 at 9:44 am
the kind you find in a second hand store!
December 12, 2008 at 9:59 am
Everyone is oohing and ahhing over what is essentially a very basic outfit. I admit she does look good, but for those that are green-eyed, go look in your closet, you could probably pull off the same look without having to buy anything new.A basic dress (even a pencil skirt would work. All of the chain necklaces that you own, scarf, bag boots and beret…et voila!Your colour combos might even end up being more inspiring. I’m not a huge fan of navy, but love the plum and grey.
December 12, 2008 at 10:15 am
December 12, 2008 at 10:37 am
Love this! She's got a great blog, but the way, and she mentions that they are the Alice & Olivia booties. Probably one of my fave looks from her!
December 12, 2008 at 11:07 am
love love love the shorter sleeves with the long leather gloves..the beret pushed towards the back of her head…and those booties!!!
December 12, 2008 at 11:30 am
One of my favorite Prince songs, like, ever.
She does look like she walked in through out door.
December 12, 2008 at 12:37 pm
I love the outfit but I am not digging the accessories. I think the hat + the scarf (not the hat alone) + the amount of necklaces adds up to a kind of Urban Outfitters art school student look to me.
December 12, 2008 at 12:58 pm
love her style!
December 12, 2008 at 2:06 pm
I do like this outfit, but I can’t say I think this girl has a ton of “style.” For me, this is a very “dress-by-numbers” type of outfit. Hat. Check. Some sort of scarf piece. Check. Dress. Check. Blazer. Check. Gloves. Check. Bag. Check. Tights. Check. Shoes. Check. Necklaces and earrings. Check. Muted but sophisticated color pallet. Check. It’s essentially an outfit that anyone–given they have the money to buy all these pieces–could put together and look good in. Which is good in some ways; there’s also those outfits that only someone 6’5″ and 100 lb. could look good in. But for me, there’s really no personality or innovation needed to pull off this outfit. Yes, it looks nice. Yes, it follows all the current conventions of fashion. But I think that we were all capable of putting together an outfit exactly like this even before we saw this picture.
December 12, 2008 at 3:07 pm
ohh, lovely look!clutch, shoes and beret are sooo incredible. very french)
December 12, 2008 at 3:37 pm
Gorgeous! (Though I also wish she wasn’t wearing a keffiyeh…or a rosary!)
December 12, 2008 at 3:43 pm
tres tres chic! she is perfect!!!She looks like a little Parisian doll….
Gorgeous! Can anyone tag the clutch? Is it vintage?
December 12, 2008 at 5:40 pm
Loving people’s comments on this. I agree with sparrow that it’s really trendy, esp. the cotton scarf. With this scarf and the earrings, the look becomes so reminiscent of Desperately Seeking Susan, which has its own Arquette-ish kind of 80′s charm.. Now, overcast days never turned me on, but somethin’ ’bout the clouds and her mixed…
December 12, 2008 at 7:56 pm
I’m in love!
December 12, 2008 at 8:25 pm
But she’s not French, is she? Hasn’t she been featured here before on the streets of NYC? I’d love the link to her blog!
December 12, 2008 at 9:34 pm
she’s American you know!
December 12, 2008 at 11:09 pm
lovely style !!!!xoxo
December 13, 2008 at 12:34 am
She looks so lovely.
December 13, 2008 at 1:34 am
I have loved ankle boots more and more this season. I don’t care if they cut off the leg a bit- I love the way they can create balance. She looks amazing.
December 13, 2008 at 3:23 am
I have seen my wife and she wears a Raspberry Beret.
December 13, 2008 at 3:52 am
…. and if it was warm she wouldn’t wear much more
December 13, 2008 at 5:42 am
December 13, 2008 at 6:29 am
what i love about the outfit is that u can see the personality in it. she really uses fashion as a way of expression, form the inside to the outside and not the other way round. i love the gloves and the earings with that hair and hat. the clutch gives it that touch also… BUT, i have to say the scarf is not working for me. im tired of that palestinian scarf already…. the givenchynian necklaces look great though.
December 13, 2008 at 9:01 am
I seriously love the shoes!
December 13, 2008 at 9:51 am
The clutch is from Club Monaco
December 13, 2008 at 2:02 pm
I like how she makes it look effortless, just easy… But you know there’s a lot of thought behind it;)
December 13, 2008 at 3:41 pm
Everything is wonderful, until you get a hold of that horrible keffiyeh scarf. It’s played out, and a different scarf, even in the same colors, would perfect the amazing outfit. She has a knack for mixing bohemian and classic. Love the clutch and shoes!!
December 13, 2008 at 3:49 pm
I feel like a lot of people could agree with me when i say that she could swap that scarf for something different. (Possibly a chunky knit in a great color?) Oddly enough, the beret makes her look like the hipster kids on the west and east coast here- maybe it’s time to wear a different hat or play around with longer type berets, something. A different hat and scarf and it could be so much better. Maybe its time we put down the sweater-knit berets? Just a thought.
December 13, 2008 at 4:00 pm
Not sure I like the scarf. Other than that, she looks very stylish.
December 13, 2008 at 4:12 pm
She’s so lovely! Keira Knightley’s daughter!
December 13, 2008 at 4:36 pm

the beret and boots are so so cute!!
December 14, 2008 at 9:53 am
I think its the one of the best photos here, wonderful look, wanna have all this on me, especially boots! )
December 14, 2008 at 5:26 pm
This look is so chic and elegant. I love the beautiful ankle boots and the oversized clutch really gives the whole look an edge.
December 14, 2008 at 10:45 pm
she looks like edie sedgwick.
December 15, 2008 at 12:29 am
I wish Keira Knightly were as fashionable as this girl!
December 15, 2008 at 3:21 pm
She’s cute, but this outfit just seems trendy to me. It’s not at all special or particularly flattering on her.
December 15, 2008 at 5:54 pm
Wished the girls here in Berlin had so much style…
December 15, 2008 at 10:31 pm
If only I could pull of this look. I feel like that’s what I say every time, but she is fierce! Honestly!
December 16, 2008 at 12:38 am
There is not ONE thing about this girl that I do not like. I can’t even hate her cause I’m totally jealous!!
December 16, 2008 at 3:25 am
Aw man. Sleeve layering is so great.
I love the color her legs ended up through the tights–on my monitor, a warm reddish brown. I have just started to get into tights (at just over 5′, I’ve felt like there’s barely any leg to work with, but I’m getting over that because tights are so adorable!). Is that just plain sheer black nylon over white skin that does that, or is it dark brown, or…?
I can’t even look at a clutch purse without thinking, “goshhhh what a pain to carry around.” I do not understand the appeal. Is it for the looks or is there some benefit that I don’t see?
IMHO those chunky knit berets look overly trendy and silly on straight, thin hair, but totally awesome on thick or curly or voluminous hair.
I used to be into the boho jewellery style that is layering tons and tons of stuff on for the sake of having layers, but lately I have felt that it is unappealing excess, and prefer to go with a singular unusual item that I really really enjoy instead (a single pair of amber heart-shaped earrings instead of dangly hoops, every necklace I own, several bracelets, etc…).
December 16, 2008 at 11:21 am
I just love this! It’s complex and deliberate and yet manages to look effortless. Love the sweeping bangs too.
December 16, 2008 at 2:01 pm
I love everything about this outfit. Its smart yet fun. I love the boots, brown tights and especially the oversized clutch. Great shot!
December 17, 2008 at 12:11 am
raaaaaaaaaaaaaaasspberry berethahah good song.
i love her outfit
December 19, 2008 at 4:06 pm
Most of all, I love those boots. They’re adorable…like mittens for your feet.
December 19, 2008 at 10:05 pm
i’m pretty sure the boots are alice + olivia for payless…if not then they are VERY similar and you roll the knitted part up or down
December 20, 2008 at 9:33 am
Love the layers and pattered scarf. It all works so well together.
December 20, 2008 at 8:41 pm
WOW I just mentioned Raspberry Beret on a later post because those guys reminded me of Prince who I adoreI get a sense of asymmetrical balance in the way her bangs and scarf are styled to the side and the bag kind of brings her look to level
December 21, 2008 at 7:06 am
This is a perfect example of how a good total look can make reconsider the return of certain clothes as “palestinas”.
December 21, 2008 at 5:42 pm
Where the F do those boots come from ? THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS AND I WOULD KILL FOR THEM ! i’m not saying die because otherwise I wouldn’t be able to wear them ! Stupid expression btw !
HEART HEART HEART it !!

what a taste…! i like it a lot!
December 29, 2008 at 7:55 pm
Reminds me of a young keira knightley? just in the face. J’adore the beret and blazer! Looking for one just like it.
December 31, 2008 at 7:15 pm
wooow there’s too many trends going on at one time for mei mean she’s got the slouchy beanie, the scarf, the over layering chains, the blazer, the oversized clutch AND the ankle booties?it’s just sooo much
ahhhh but i do luv her shoes…they are soo cute!
January 3, 2009 at 9:40 pm

Everything is working on her except for that scarf and those boots.
January 7, 2009 at 1:24 am
Wow now that is a perfectly put together outfit- obvious that she put a lot of thought into it. love the booties, love her small stomach sticking out- offers authenticity to the outfit.
she almost looks like keira knightley in a way. it must be annoying to hold that clutch all the time though.
January 7, 2009 at 7:25 pm
Ah! What a shot! The styling in this outfit is near perfect. I’m absolutely giddy on the inside. I love the subtle touch the sheer tights add to this.
January 8, 2009 at 12:06 pm
I think the boots are vanessa bruno
January 8, 2009 at 12:13 pm
She IS adoreable…but unfortunately, not french. She’s a New Yorker, a stylist, and her blog (the glamourai) is fantastic.
January 8, 2009 at 1:55 pm
the boots are fantastic!
January 10, 2009 at 8:42 pm
She has an amazingly fabulous look!! I love everything about this outfit…color, texture, composition!! Just wonderful!!
January 17, 2009 at 12:00 pm
i love ittres chic
January 21, 2009 at 4:06 am
Does anyone know where i can find a navy jacket like that?
January 28, 2009 at 3:01 am
Great colors..great style..
February 21, 2009 at 6:56 pm
perfect pose, perfect outfit, perfect setting :)
March 6, 2009 at 6:05 am
I fall in love…This Style… These eyes… She’s amazing.
March 8, 2009 at 3:39 pm
I have those boots! I got them at Payless! And yes, they ARE adorable – and comfortable.
March 9, 2009 at 7:08 pm
I went speachlees on this look. this is flawless…not much colour,but still enough,and so youthful! ohh, love it.
March 19, 2009 at 8:23 am
AMAZING! I just love this look, I’m gonna hang this pic up in my room for inspiration .
June 16, 2009 at 7:10 pm
this is amazing!
July 11, 2009 at 10:14 pm
I'm a straight man and I'm loving those shoes!
August 15, 2009 at 11:38 am
shoes can really make an outfit
December 8, 2009 at 4:50 pm
I love browsing the archive for good looks. What stands out here is the battered and well-used oversized raspberry clutch. It looks to have had a life behind it and be on its last legs with a story to tell. I also like her mix of vintage with continually clashing colours, blue and black and the like. She totally reminds me of my friend Naomi who is effortlessly stylish.
January 26, 2010 at 9:36 pm
This might be my favorite picture yet- this is exactly the style I try for.
February 4, 2011 at 7:38 am
Love your blog. I am now following, see you on my))
June 9, 2012 at 11:59 pm
I love this look, though I may say it is a little over accessorized. Considering the people in the background are bundled up too, I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt that she’s dressing for winter! Love the hat color!
November 17, 2014 at 4:24 am
