I love everything about this. From the way her hair is cut, to the way she holds her bag, to the purple of the skirt, to her shoes. She’s very beautiful and so is her look! Simple but still very stylish!
October 12, 2008 at 9:56 am
Got me speechless!
October 12, 2008 at 10:08 am
I love her menswear wristwatch!!! Want want want!!!!
October 12, 2008 at 10:12 am
On the first pic she looks like Kylie. Love the shoes and the haircut!
October 12, 2008 at 10:24 am
Very elegant. Love the color of the shoes in the first shot.
October 12, 2008 at 10:43 am
Most Amazing Pic of the month. I love everything. Head to Toe perfection.
October 12, 2008 at 10:45 am
I love that bag, it’s one of my favourites. The Novak by McQueen.
It looks classic yet futuristic at the same time.
Amazing how much power a bag can reflect on your outfit
October 12, 2008 at 10:48 am
I love the color of the second girl´s skirt :)
October 12, 2008 at 10:54 am
is one shoe pink one shoe purple??
October 12, 2008 at 10:59 am
love the touch of purple in each shot (and that orange bracelet in the second!). great sunglasses, great hair, but most of all i love that she’s carrying a mcqueen novak!!!
do you like my tight sweater

she OWNS this look
the purple is just right!
October 12, 2008 at 12:37 pm
absolute perfection. her color palette is to die for.
I ask this question because it seems germane: when do you approve of leggings in a look, and when do you dismiss them as juvenile, teenaged, too “80′s throwback,” or tacky? Does it have to do with their color or texture? The accompanying footwear?
I have a few pairs, but find myself wishing they were just regular tights instead.
Here, I think the leggings are key to the way this lady manages to wear bulky, comfortable-looking outerwear and still look slim. The things tall people can get away with!
These photos really do present a coherent “silhouette and color story,” and that’s awesome. I love it when posts here follow a single person and show how their wardrobe demonstrates individuality and character, because that always impresses me a million times more than the “fashion chameleon.”
October 12, 2008 at 12:43 pm
Love both outfits to bits…would even try the purple shoes with the second outfit …Purple is such a rich & wonderful colour – my favourite colour at this moment !!
That Film Girl
October 12, 2008 at 1:07 pm
Ahh, such a great use of my favorite color: purple.
Je suis Fani, Enchante!
October 12, 2008 at 1:08 pm
she knows everything about purple and black as the combination, awesome!
October 12, 2008 at 1:09 pm
I love that purple color and i’m so glad that it’s big this season, and I agree with sage…love that orange bracelet too!
I particularly like the first one shot.
October 12, 2008 at 1:25 pm
really love the shoe in the first pic! i wonder where it’s from! :P
October 12, 2008 at 1:27 pm
Very nice! Is this Tod’s bracelet (orange)??
October 12, 2008 at 1:28 pm
Purple and black — she’s got my colors. Black really sets off a spot of color.
October 12, 2008 at 2:04 pm
I need those shoes in the second shot. How tragic that I don’t own them.
October 12, 2008 at 2:11 pm
girl crushing on hermmmmmmmmmmmmmmmjealous of her stylish elegance!
October 12, 2008 at 3:08 pm
FAAAAAABBBULOUS. LOVE the purple..shoes,skirt…love it.
October 12, 2008 at 3:12 pm
wow lovely outfit!luv those purple heels!
October 12, 2008 at 3:17 pm
Love her look! :)
October 12, 2008 at 3:22 pm
Is this the same girl with the teal leather jacket from a few days ago? That’s the exact same street…
October 12, 2008 at 3:25 pm
both outfits – just perfect
October 12, 2008 at 3:52 pm
She knows what works for her and sticks with it. I love the orange bracelet against the dark purple skirt.
October 12, 2008 at 4:01 pm
wow this is amazing. I love it.
October 12, 2008 at 4:05 pm
love love that second picture. great shapes, bag, the hair, the shoes…the colors.
October 12, 2008 at 4:51 pm
beautiful. cute. chic. elegant.very nice combination with a very pretty woman.

Those shoes those shoes those shoes! I’m not so hot about the bag, but no one’s perfect. But everyone is looking at her feet anyway, so who cares?
October 12, 2008 at 4:57 pm
Oh my, the bag, the shoes, the clothes…perfection! Love how she stuck to the colour palette but changed certain pieces…
October 12, 2008 at 5:27 pm
Ugh! People, stop with the leggings, so OVER the leggings…!!!!!!!!thank goodness THIS girl has thin legs…don’t come to norway…alot of wrong legs in thights:S
October 12, 2008 at 5:59 pm
I love the shoes, and especially the outfit in the second picture.
October 12, 2008 at 6:06 pm
this is the lovely girl with the blue bag a while back right?she’s so stylishi adore her style
October 12, 2008 at 6:45 pm
Still not feeling the leggings, but love her haircut and soft-shouldered silhouette.
October 12, 2008 at 6:52 pm
Minimalism, the key to great style. I love the fact that she wears tights with each outfit, it portrays absolute class.
October 12, 2008 at 7:35 pm
She’s got it all down perfectly. Even carrying her morning coffee looks so chic!

October 12, 2008 at 7:46 pm
Very tricky! I love the way you shot her in the same locale as “one girl, one bag” from the other day, down to her shadow on the pavement- did you have them lined up waiting? It has to be the same time of day. “one girl…” is my favorite of the “twin” shots, the top photo here is my favorite, although I also like her orange bracelets in the bottom photo. Also love that she wore her purple shoes one day and her purple skirt another while retaining certain elements of both ensembles. The jacket and skirt in the top photo are pretty fabulous, and the shoes in the bottom one. Well done, on her part and yours!
October 12, 2008 at 7:55 pm
funnily enough, its the leggings that really give both the outfits that edge, especially the first one.
October 12, 2008 at 7:58 pm
Why is it that the leggings look so perfect? Americans absolutely massacred that trend….Maybe if they treated legwear with more dignity, like the milanese, and accented them with the right shoes, and skirts we wouldn’t have to cringe so often at the sight of a flashdance moment for a hockey mom.
October 12, 2008 at 8:06 pm
The first photo reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw and what she would were to a wake. Fabulous!
October 12, 2008 at 8:27 pm
Isn’t that right around the Bocconi? Damn I want to be back there!
October 12, 2008 at 8:56 pm
i don’t know why so many people hate leggings (i love them!) – though they are worn badly a lot of the time, they look great on her and actually make the outfit. the outfits would NOT look the same with black tights or no leggings.
her satin shoes in the first picture and her mens watch in the second are perfection.
October 12, 2008 at 11:09 pm
love it but i prefer opaque tights with skirts..

October 12, 2008 at 11:42 pm
She has great style!! I love that hint of purple in the second photo!
October 12, 2008 at 11:57 pm
Both adorable and charming!
October 13, 2008 at 12:12 am
Devil’s advocate….I really don’t like the first photo at all. The skirt seems too high (at both waist and hem) and then the leggings mess with the shape contrast from top and skirt. Maybe she should have worn a longer skirt to hide the leggings…The jacket and shoes are nice though…..it’s just the middle that bothers me.
October 13, 2008 at 1:03 am
the top in the first picture looks chanel
October 13, 2008 at 3:10 am
She looks great. But I wanted to comment on the tights. For the past year your viewers have been becrying tights as passe and “so over”.However, I see through your blog ( I live in a fashion abyss, and use your blog to see what the real world is wearing), that as “out” as they may be touted to be, they are still everywhere and looking pretty great.Ditto on the whole skinny jean debate.My point being is that just because some magazine tells you what the current trend is, it does not make it so on the streets. And thank god for that because in the real world on the streets, who can really afford to replace their wardrobe every season. And anyways you should be buying what you love and feel great in and therefore will transcend any fashion editors dictatorial opinion in any given season.
October 13, 2008 at 3:13 am
leggings – thats the key of her look!
October 13, 2008 at 3:53 am
Fabulous! She looks so great! Risky style for good!
October 13, 2008 at 4:41 am
She is great! Very ‘her’, very coherent! I would love to see more versions of that silhouette and color story!
October 13, 2008 at 5:04 am
Thank you very much for sharing. Through your blog, a lot of people including me of course have a chance to read and learn
from. I have read some of your post and I really enjoyed reading it. Thanks again and looking forward for more of your posting soon!
October 13, 2008 at 5:55 am
Elegant and cool, especially the first outfit. Goes in to my inspiration file.

October 13, 2008 at 7:48 am
I love the color matching between her skirt and heels. I think she really achieves a sleek but casual look.
October 13, 2008 at 8:07 am
I love the big masculine watch. My fiancé wears one all the time.
October 13, 2008 at 8:15 am
very nicelink me uphttp://ereus.blogspot.com
October 13, 2008 at 8:30 am
And a second thing!I think it’s very lucky that you caught her on two different days (is this the case?) because here it really is about the consistency in the palette. Had you just gotten one of these shots, maybe she wouldn’t be here. But she didn’t over do it by wearing the purple shoes and the skirt on the same day~ she kept to the hint of color idea, and YOU noticed! Thank you Sart!I know I have a pretty consistent color palette that I love, and it’s so pleasing when someone notices a set of outfits!
Delighted & Charmed
October 13, 2008 at 8:43 am
This makes me feel better about how often I wear mostly black with a touch of color.
October 13, 2008 at 9:17 am
wuah her watch is great and I love her hair :)
October 13, 2008 at 9:19 am
are both the same person?one word: FAB!
October 13, 2008 at 9:22 am
She looks like Kira Knightely, especally in the top photo.
October 13, 2008 at 9:56 am
why leggings? please no..
October 13, 2008 at 10:34 am
Excellent. Leggings can’t quite be banished just yet. Your recent photos show that worn with a simple outfit and fabulous accessories (lean legs are a must), leggings look amazing.
October 13, 2008 at 11:20 am
i just love her purple heels
October 13, 2008 at 11:54 am
I hope leggings never leave!
October 13, 2008 at 12:51 pm
Please, someone, why do you hate the tights? They look great. Please explain.
October 13, 2008 at 1:16 pm
I am speechless for the first time ever
October 13, 2008 at 2:41 pm
I particularly love the second photograph and that this woman has a certain endearing awkwardness about her.
I must say that both outfits would have looked infinitely more chic with black tights, as opposed to the leggings we have going here. The footless tights trend must end.
October 13, 2008 at 3:01 pm
I must say, I am anti-leggings, but Europeans wear them so much better than Americans. (And I say that as an American who lives in Europe). Love her touches of colour. I am totally in envy of her effortless style !
October 13, 2008 at 3:24 pm
It’s not Tods-Hermes.( Braclet in 2nd photo)
October 13, 2008 at 3:54 pm
October 13, 2008 at 4:44 pm
Personally I hate leggings, but she does them well. Love her skirts,the last sweater and the purple!
October 13, 2008 at 6:07 pm
She reminds me of the very definition of what “women’s everyday wear” should be.
The pop of color from the pumps reminds me of a pair of flats that I purchased. They are a pair of ocean blue flats and I am intending to pair them with a mostly neutral palette. I love how bright colors have been showing up with neutral colors lately (just like in this picture)
October 13, 2008 at 7:24 pm
maybe everyone hates leggings because they’re often worn as trouser substitutes .. at least in sydney they are.
and at least, that’s why i’m not a big fan of leggings.
October 13, 2008 at 7:38 pm
This is how you do all black, by NOT doing it. A pop of color somewhere unexpected takes you from hiding in the backdrop to a whole different place. The use of purple is adorable and admirable for such purposes. I usually hate purple, but she’s used it well.
October 13, 2008 at 9:32 pm
To work the leggings well you have to have skinny legs, period.
October 14, 2008 at 12:56 am
I love the watch in the second photo. And I wish I could have a better look at the heels on those shoes. I also agree with the above poster who said that most people who dislike leggings simply don’t have the gams for them. For the same reason, I hate flat boots.
October 14, 2008 at 2:29 am
October 14, 2008 at 3:08 am
Uhm, leggings are always questionable but they pretty much work out here. Love the shoes, not sure about the oversized bag and sunglasses and the Diet coke… Nice instant pic, Sart.
October 14, 2008 at 5:36 am
Such a gorgeous silhouette in the first photo, let down by the gap between the end of the leggings and the beginning of the shoes. Much better to have worn black opaque stockings and stylish black spikey shoes for a complete effect. I’m one of those who find leggings very suburban, no matter how great the legs. That said, she also has a beautiful haircut and a great bag. Nine out of 10.
October 14, 2008 at 11:37 am
I don’t know, I think this is prety simple actually… I mean, she does look great, but her outfit is not very creative I think. She has the body to pull this off but it’s pretty much a style that can be seen everywhere on the streets right now. It doesn’t look to me like a very personal style. And hey, even purple is everywhere! So yeah, she looks good, but I’m missing that personal touch that so many of the great looks here show.But great pictures as always…
October 14, 2008 at 2:34 pm
I love how, if one person says they don’t like a particular trend, another person runs in and tells them that it’s just because they couldn’t pull it off. I have skinny legs (and not to my great delight either). I can pull off leggings (hopefully). And yet I still think they look very, very silly and will soon go out of fashion. Please don’t assume that every single critique has an underlying layer of jealousy; they very often don’t.
October 14, 2008 at 4:11 pm
she looks like a blonde Keira Knightley…don’t you think so? Her face. Haha.

October 14, 2008 at 4:26 pm
Ah, purple and black. Such a great color combo. The bag really ties in with the look!
October 14, 2008 at 6:18 pm
Simply stunning. The first shot is superb.
October 14, 2008 at 10:37 pm
I can’t even begin to describe how much i love this…she’s just all around wonderful
October 15, 2008 at 3:08 am
please tell me someone knows who makes those shoes in the 2nd shot? must. get. them.
October 16, 2008 at 12:09 am
I love both of her outfits so much, her style is just like mine! She makes everything look very classy and stylish. I really am a fan of dark colors and the way her light hair pops against them. She really knows how to dress and I want to look more like her!!
October 16, 2008 at 6:53 am
lovely shoes BUT GORGEOUS BAGGGG!!!!
October 16, 2008 at 6:21 pm
actually i think her outfits benefit from the punctuation of leggings – all-black from tights with a heavily black outfit would look quite banal in comparison with the contrast from her ankles/feet. I think the key to legging success might be to make sure you’re wearing the longer length – 2-3 inches above the ankle?
October 16, 2008 at 11:53 pm
I like the way you set up this shot.. very symmetrical in the background and then she is perfectly set in the middle, reminded me of a seen set up from one of Stanley Kubrick’s pictures.
October 18, 2008 at 3:27 am
I don’t like to say this but… OH MY GOD !!! Waow. I prefer the first picture but I assume that’s because her sort of naturally glamorous attitude shows better there than in the bottom one where she’s just standing. Anyway, an absolute masterpiece of style. And what a nice purple touch on both outfits…
October 18, 2008 at 7:30 am
i must say, this is one of the best pictures i have seen in a while. Funny how nature is on the one side where the light is, and culture on the other side where it is dark,and the girl in the middle, who is quit anonymous, like she is drawn to both sides…!!WONDERFULL!!! bravo to the person who has taken the picture
October 19, 2008 at 7:00 am
I love her bags and shoes *drools*
October 22, 2008 at 9:27 am
Anna Wintour has done more for the contempo-bob than anyone. Immaculate.
October 25, 2008 at 2:24 pm
To the comment near the top, not just tall people can get away with leggings with this outfit….the heels are key!!!!! High high high high heels for us shorties….and er, leggings!
October 26, 2008 at 1:59 pm
Oh – what a girl. Not everyone can wear this – great legs, wonderful shoes – the purple ones are my favourites. The bag is amazing. I would do anything to get such wonderful hair.

Really wonderful look!
I have a question: who knows the price of her Novak bag? It takes part of the collection of 2005. Is it still possible to find it and where?I'll be really grateful for any info. Thanks a lot!
