I love this scarf. That print is so fresh.
April 23, 2008 at 8:52 am
my first reaction was wow! man or woman?
then i realized how much i liked the combination of the stripes and the scarf.
and then of course the glenn close-like 80′s hair…which i think should make a come-back.

you should really update more, i check this site daily with such little new content
either way i am still fascinated by this site, congrats on all the success

That scarf is definitely where it’s at. And I’m a sucker for Aviators…
April 23, 2008 at 8:59 am
the greatest show on earth
I adore her look! Perfect!
April 23, 2008 at 9:01 am
love it…contrasting colors are great
April 23, 2008 at 9:15 am
A practical, stylish look for spring–just right if it gets a little bit cool. But the best thing about this is the gorgeous curls!
April 23, 2008 at 9:26 am
I love everything but the pale lipstick.

Ah, I was just looking at a version of this boat-stripe shirt, yesterday. There is a leanness about this look that is so contemporary.
Everything is pulled together with outstanding accessories in the form of the aviators, the belt, the yellow bag, the ballet shoes, and that gorgeous scarf which is meant to look as though it was just a last-minute addition.
The hair is outstanding. Also, the fact that she is posed so confidently, and without that pidgeon-toe stance, makes me love this shot even more!

I like the outfit. She has a very strong jaw and chin- I would have opted for more feminine sunglass frames, but otherwise a good overall result. I also like the way the sun is behind her yet she appears well lit in the image. Jorge from West Palm Beach

We love the yellow bag, and the scarf. Spring colors after a drab winter.
April 23, 2008 at 9:40 am
I do like the scarf it i so original!! and her hair is so Tina Turner. I like this kind of down to earth relaxing style something that generally one does not see in the fashion magazines.
April 23, 2008 at 9:42 am
very androgynous, until i saw the shoes. great outfit. everything is put together really well
April 23, 2008 at 9:43 am
This is inspiration defined!!! I’m already on my way back to the wider leg, so I take this as a hint. Plus: I knew! that would need a yellow bag this summer–with the marine colours it looks so fresh! Very well done!
April 23, 2008 at 9:54 am
I’m liking the use of BOTH yellow and coral with the navy. One or the other would have been trite, but all together it is really nice.
i love it, especially the scarf and bag. she did awesome.
April 23, 2008 at 10:04 am
I like her scarf and the complimenting blue and yellow. But overall, I don’t care for the silhouette created by the heavy top and the wide-legged pants.
April 23, 2008 at 10:05 am
Good color combination over all. The yellow POPS. She also looks like she has a private joke with the world going on.
I love how the scarf and bag contrast to the blues of her outfit….and I LOVE her hair!!! Nice to see wider cut jeans as well.
Sometimes when I look at your photos, they look so alive and I wish the person would start talking or moving. They look so interesting. I wonder… what does her voice sound like. How does she move- gracefully? I want to see how the clothes move on the models and how they move in them.
I love those pants. And the scarf. I hate those glasses… they make her look too masculine.
April 23, 2008 at 10:14 am
I love everything about this outfit – the colors, prints, textures, the cuffed jeans. The yellow purse really tops it off!
April 23, 2008 at 10:17 am
yelow bag and metallic glases and this hair,very nice….
April 23, 2008 at 10:27 am
A bit too boxy, I would like to see her neck under that scarf, which would elongate her more. And I’d prefer the pant legs rolled down, but to each her own! Good color combos though.
April 23, 2008 at 10:45 am
Fantastic!i do really like the combination of colours (red, blue an yellow)..they are my favourite ones and the lovely shirt reminds me of summer at the coast.i hope the nice weather will come to germany as soon as possible
April 23, 2008 at 10:46 am
She looks sort of crazy and sort of fantastic. Love what she’s done with the jeans, the mix of patterns, and of course black and yellow always look great together. I bet she got all this at a thrift store.

April 23, 2008 at 10:59 am
Stance, color accents, shoes, hair all work together to make this look stand out from conventional nautical navy.
i don’t like the pants, but everything elso is great! a very inspiring look – I might try it :)
April 23, 2008 at 11:04 am
Great photograph; the utilization of focus is superb.
Everything except the pants is fabulous. That contrasting pocket-stitch really “irks” me.
Once again, aviators are big this year.
This looks like something I could actually almost wear – except way more stylish (I would surely have the instinct to dull it down and contain the hair if I were trying to wear it). Bring on the inspiration! Let the bright touches shine! Let the hair be free!
April 23, 2008 at 11:25 am
love the hair. wonderfully androgynous.
April 23, 2008 at 11:47 am
LOVE it. I’m usually not a big fan of shorter pants, but these hit her at just the right spot.
April 23, 2008 at 11:48 am
anyone who’s ever read my comments knows i love the stripes.
i think they compliment other patterns nicely, such as the scarf.
nice mix up.
April 23, 2008 at 11:50 am
She looks like she’s just come out of a Gap store. I love it though.
April 23, 2008 at 11:51 am
Great combination of colours.
April 23, 2008 at 11:52 am
Great clothes/color combos, but I don’t know about those aviators they have taken it to a new level.
April 23, 2008 at 12:12 pm
Nice transitional spring outfit. I want it!

April 23, 2008 at 12:19 pm
That bag adds a great POP of color.
April 23, 2008 at 12:20 pm
great color palette. not a huge fan of the pants, but she is slender enough to pull off the pockets which can be difficult. overall, great look!
April 23, 2008 at 12:22 pm
eventhough her hair is quite glorious, the look is so all-over-the place, that i think if her hair were pulled back really neatly, it would bring a new level of sophistication to it. right now it’s competing to hard with the mis of prints and colors.

I love the combination of the scarf pattern with the stripes. And that yellow bag is such a pleasant surprise.
April 23, 2008 at 12:33 pm
she looks very soho style, boheme, hip and chic
April 23, 2008 at 12:44 pm
Interesting mix of prints, colours. Love the texture on her bag strap. Ooh, she looks so comfortable.
April 23, 2008 at 12:48 pm
from the waist up I love it, but those pants aren’t very flattering.
April 23, 2008 at 1:01 pm
Take out the scarf, the bag and the shades and I think she looks absolutely fabulous. But the accessories ruin a very good look as far as I am concerned.
I especially love the jeans and shoes.
April 23, 2008 at 1:04 pm
The scarf is great- I’m not so sure with this outfit though- don’t you think the proportions on the top are a little heavy for the weight and width of her trouser jeans?
Perhaps just with a lighter fabric scarf? Maybe wrapped more loosely around the neck?
April 23, 2008 at 1:05 pm
I like her outfit – very good transition between seasons and her outfit seems very appropriate for the weather of New York at this time of year. I especially like the color choice of her bag and scarf and the way it stands out against the rest of her outfit. She just seems very comfortable in what she wears. I do not particularly care for her glasses, however.
April 23, 2008 at 1:18 pm
I like the mix of colours and prints on the top-half of the outfit.
April 23, 2008 at 1:27 pm
The coolest everyday look ever. Cut of the pants, check. Scarf, check. short-sleeve cardi over long-sleeve jersey, check. Yellow bag, check. Shades, super-check. Hairdo, big-fat-super-check.
The lady knows how to dress for her day. Lets have more shots of this kind!
PS: I abhorre the ribbons on her shoes, but that’s a minor point here.
April 23, 2008 at 2:19 pm
I think she looks adorable and perfect for spring. (I’m a total sucker for striped tees.) Personally, I like to keep my flats bow-free and, as much as I love aviators, I might have chosen a different pair of shades for this look. In fact, her outfit looks so happy, I wish she’d have ripped off the shades and given you a big smile for this shot.
April 23, 2008 at 2:21 pm
I agree with the person who thinks that more of her neck ought to show, but the scarf is pretty. I like it with the stripes, but not so much with the pants or sweater.
I love the bag, and the hair.
April 23, 2008 at 2:49 pm
too cool for school! everything is so funky, i especially love her hair and yellow bag
April 23, 2008 at 3:16 pm
This is the first scarf of this type that I actually like in the outfit. Terrifc colors, and the shoes with the loose pants are a great look. However I don’t think those shades do her any justice.
April 23, 2008 at 3:46 pm
She is so FUN. Love everything about her. The color combination is lovely
April 23, 2008 at 4:41 pm
i love the stripes and the scarf together!it looks awesome and so absolutely not volitional..
April 23, 2008 at 4:46 pm
i love the stripes and scarf together! it looks awesome and so absolutely not volitional!great..though i`d chosen other shoes… i dont`l like the bow so much..
April 23, 2008 at 6:02 pm
interesting to think how this one could translate over to and inform men’s style. the big buckle and the yellow bag have this interesting, gender-defying contrast.
April 23, 2008 at 6:53 pm
oh sart, you’ve taken to posting unannotated images again, and after such vocal approval of your wordier posts, too…
i admit, its been a tumultuous time in between: we’ve had the makeover, the boots, the flip flops… so much controversy, but i miss the extra information that even a few words from you give us, be it the circumstances of the encounter, your take on the clothes, or some insight into the character of the model.
personally i’m mesmerised by his/her make up ( i don’t think the issue of gender is necessarily resolved…) is her/his face painted gold?
April 23, 2008 at 7:19 pm
The really cool thing is that if you just change the shoes, this outfit could work well on either a man or a woman.
April 23, 2008 at 7:38 pm
it just looks so ‘old navy’ to me
April 23, 2008 at 8:26 pm
I love her scarf!!! The print is awesome and i love the close to mustard color purse, all the colors intertwine together somewhat :)
April 23, 2008 at 9:05 pm
The scarf is feminine, but also masculine enough for a man to wear
April 23, 2008 at 9:24 pm
Perfect from head to toe & love it all.
April 24, 2008 at 12:17 am
Very unique look. The model is very androgynous. But, I figured it was a woman.
April 24, 2008 at 2:25 am
April 24, 2008 at 3:10 am
the whole look is fantastic! inspiring as i love the nautical look – I could easily wear this…
April 24, 2008 at 4:21 am
I am a bit confused because everyone here likes it.For some reasons, I don´t know why–why??? I don´t like the whole outfit! May be I´m out of zeitgeist or whatever… but the turned up trousers look terrible. Sorry…Taste is a miracle…
April 24, 2008 at 4:31 am
Everything but the glasses. They gobble up that tiny nose.
April 24, 2008 at 4:46 am
J’adore le jaune bag. Très chic.
April 24, 2008 at 6:03 am
Usually I love everything on the site. But I am not feeling this. Yes, it’s neat because it’s so androgenous but besides that…I’m perplexed.

April 24, 2008 at 8:30 am
I would leave the scarf, jacket, glasses and huge hair at home. This is a twist on the classic French casual look that is better off left to professionals!
April 24, 2008 at 8:56 am
to john @ 9:42 am.
Just because this girl is lean & has a strong jaw, I don’t think it’s fair to call her outfit androgynous (from a fashion standpoint). On a curvier girl, these same clothes would never pass as ‘androgynous’. Then again, I could be wrong. Any thoughts, Sartorialist?
April 24, 2008 at 9:17 am
Oooo, OOoooo, she’s just fun perfection! I enjoy the wide variety of fashion sense reflected on this site, but I think this is the first time I’ve seen a pic that is EXACTLY like something I would wear.
April 24, 2008 at 9:35 pm
I love everything about this. The pieces, the pants, the pockets on the pants, the bag (!!!), the hair, the shoes, the result……perfect.
April 25, 2008 at 12:40 am
Love the outfit – transvestite chic!
April 25, 2008 at 11:35 am
I like the idea but I think she could remove one or two elements, perhaps the scarf and the sunglasses or make the bag a bit smaller. The accesories are overpowering the concept of the outfit.
April 25, 2008 at 12:18 pm
Is she a black woman with natural hair or a Caucasian with a good haircut and a perm? Either way, her hair is gorgeous, like a lion’s mane. And I love the outfit: it summarizes the spring trends, at the same time being casual and comfortable with lots of individual style. I even don’t mind the aviator sunglasses. I wish I could get a better look at the yellow bag.
And I agree with pretty kitty: it’s so much better without the pigeon toe.
To celebpaparazzo: are you kidding? There is new content on this site almost every day! Anyway, it’s a blog, not a daily newspaper.
April 25, 2008 at 5:39 pm
I love Spring!! is the time of the year to pull out these kind of looks, the rest of the year is either great coats or half naked.
