the sun gave forth bursts of hot, hot light, and she wore blue sneakers to protect herself from the fire collecting in the dark pavement.
July 25, 2011 at 3:08 pm
lovely! she's a lady.
Wonder if the dress is vintage — looks so. Very fresh paired with the short hair and blue sneakers. Lovely.
The long dress is super flattering on her; she pulls off the vintage style well!

Elegant simplicity…very Jane Russell…
July 25, 2011 at 3:10 pm
So retro and so adorable.
July 25, 2011 at 3:11 pm
love the fact that shes wearing those shoes!
July 25, 2011 at 3:13 pm
Wow, flashback to my high school days: printed shirtwaist & keds without socks. Lovely look, really fresh and retro.
July 25, 2011 at 3:14 pm
I like how well the dress and shoes compliment each other
pretty dress, and love the pairing with the blue keds

July 25, 2011 at 3:21 pm
totally cute. First good look of summer.
July 25, 2011 at 3:24 pm
Nice look! Digging the shoes!
Really love the clash of the ladylike dress and the keds. Charming!
July 25, 2011 at 3:28 pm
Beautiful – the length & proportions, the color = everything I'm looking for in a Summer dress. *sigh*
July 25, 2011 at 3:29 pm
Very sweet retro look. Love it!
Love the lighting!

She makes me wanna read books.
July 25, 2011 at 4:11 pm
She has an innocence about her… she seems very fragile and romantic in a way hence she can pull those shoes off…
July 25, 2011 at 4:13 pm
What a dashing NYC summer moment. I am loving this dress!

Royal looking !!
July 25, 2011 at 5:55 pm
This look reminds me of Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday.
July 25, 2011 at 6:17 pm
She looks like the woman in the vintage photo posted on 7/23 come to life!
July 25, 2011 at 6:30 pm
Sigh, beautiful!Total blast from the past!
July 25, 2011 at 6:46 pm
Well, almost. The keds (or are these sneakers?) give it away.
July 25, 2011 at 6:54 pm
I adore this picture. It reminds me of Leslie Caron and Audrey Tautou. It is gamine without being too precious or retro.
July 25, 2011 at 7:03 pm
Oh very JD Salinger. For Esme with Love!
July 25, 2011 at 7:16 pm
That is the perfect summer outfit! Simple, relaxed, easy.
July 25, 2011 at 7:18 pm
It's so refreshing to see such a classic style pulled off so effortlessly.
July 25, 2011 at 8:28 pm
she's got that kind of "I don't care what nobody thinks about me" thing
style so splendid
July 25, 2011 at 8:46 pm
If this photo were in black and white, it could very well be a vintage photo. Everything in the picture is timeless – the dress, the sneakers, the hair. Lovely.
July 25, 2011 at 8:55 pm
fresh and pretty…

I could swear this was a photo of my mom back in the 1950's. A great, simplistic style for summer!

She looks so confident, I love the touch out vintage made modern.
July 25, 2011 at 10:22 pm
Very elegant dress and woman, minus the shoes. I look at her from the top down and am thunderstruck to not see kitten heels or something.Realistic though..And she is beautiful.
July 25, 2011 at 10:24 pm
she looks like a writer.. lost in thought.. very chic

I have been trolling Etsy for similar cotton shirtwaist dresses from the 50s/60s — this is why! They are perfect, modest for summer. I have an ancient one, green, that I've patched together so many times it's really not decent to wear anymore, though I still do — The Sartorialist would not approve! It's beyond grunge; the fabric has worn off the buttons, etc. I had another, in blue, dropped it at the drycleaner's, and someone stole the buttons off it!
Anyway, that's my story; love this look.
July 26, 2011 at 12:38 am
Cute hair, beautiful skin, indie retro style, classic dress and Keds, slim build.
But she could really use some Iyengar yoga for her posture.
July 26, 2011 at 12:41 am
It's all good, but it's the shoes that make the look 'pop'. Sexy, innocent and sophisticated all at once. Priceless!
July 26, 2011 at 12:50 am
She is perfect! Tempting wax poetic about this look but "perfection" sums up my thoughts.
July 26, 2011 at 1:40 am
Ahh. This is a winner. Love the slight clash of the different blues.
July 26, 2011 at 2:02 am
She is lovely! So fresh (even though I know she is melting). She looks like she's from another era…
July 26, 2011 at 4:41 am
Love the pairing of the shoes and dress! The fact that they match makes it even better :)
July 26, 2011 at 4:56 am
Simply elegant.You need style to wear that dress.http://www.thedreamingcloset.com
July 26, 2011 at 5:19 am
What a vision! I love the turned up collar of the gorgeous, flattering dress and the matching sneakers, I also love the way she is holding her arms and the delightful (and delighted) expression on her face – she is delight itself!

This takes me back to the 6th grade…
July 26, 2011 at 7:33 am
cute and very adorable. and the sneakers actually work with this look.
July 26, 2011 at 7:45 am
So cute with that adorable haircut and pensive gaze….xv
July 26, 2011 at 8:06 am
would have loved to have seen the dress from the front to see the neckline
July 26, 2011 at 8:13 am
Classy and classic! Love the simple chic sneakers as well. Nice to see a young woman looking like a lady rather than another disheveled downtown cool outfit that are getting a bit passe. Bring back the effort girls!!!
July 26, 2011 at 8:41 am
Less is more <3
July 26, 2011 at 9:03 am
She looks so cute and summery! It reminds me of Carey Mulligan somehow…
July 26, 2011 at 9:16 am
Beautiful. Looks like a young Shirley Maclaine.
July 26, 2011 at 9:26 am
She is adorable. The short hair, the dress – very very cute.

July 26, 2011 at 12:01 pm
I love the look. I feel like I've been transported back to the 50's. You really captured her personality (not that I know her but I sense that you did).
July 26, 2011 at 12:45 pm
I love not only what she is wearing (the word 'swell' comes to mind) but the expression and pose you have captured here. Simply LOVELY.
July 26, 2011 at 12:52 pm
this makes for a stunning portrait shot – the light, sunlit greenery framing her torso and face and the shaded tree providing a nice backdrop to her wonderful expression.

THIS is it. Good for her, I am so pleased to see this ensemble :)
July 26, 2011 at 3:32 pm
So nice to see you shoot a quiet beauty with understated style
July 26, 2011 at 6:15 pm
I can't tell you how much I love this picture!! Great job :D
Check out the blog that my sister and I write at http://oneinchapart.wordpress.com/
We would love to hear what you think of it :)
July 26, 2011 at 6:40 pm
Wow! A natural beauty – love the shoes with the dress!
July 26, 2011 at 7:39 pm
Sweet. Thinking Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday.
July 26, 2011 at 8:12 pm
Great evidence that you don't have to rely on short shorts and tank tops to stay cool in hot weather!
Love the length of the dress. Just-below-the knees hems do wonders for elongating the figure (not that this slim gal needs it) and just looks so put together.
July 26, 2011 at 9:47 pm
I love the idea of wearing sneakers with such a feminine dress. Must give it a go!

I love the floral print!

July 27, 2011 at 12:45 am
the PERFECT outfit for a hot new york day: a breezy dress, sneaks so your feet don't get dirty & carefree short hair. super cool.
July 27, 2011 at 10:45 am
so fresh! totally fits the weather!
July 27, 2011 at 2:33 pm

Gorgeous. That haircut really makes the look work.
July 27, 2011 at 9:05 pm
This is so lovely.
July 28, 2011 at 12:41 am
classic retro look…all that was needed were a pair of vintage sunglasses.
July 28, 2011 at 7:17 am
This is just too beautiful for words in this wild world!
July 28, 2011 at 10:29 am
I want this dress! It looks like something out of the 50's, and thoose shoes…perfection.

Somewhat unfortunate that we aren't at the point yet where at least one commenter would know the subject.
July 28, 2011 at 11:29 pm
Very compelling image. Perhaps she was a mirage from 1958 (Brigadoon).
July 29, 2011 at 1:19 am
I had a class with her last semester. I was very surprised to see her here, but she does look great!
July 29, 2011 at 9:12 am
She looks to me like she just stept out of the set of ''Amelie'' It's so parisienne!
July 29, 2011 at 9:35 pm
It's a beautiful dress, but it's the shoes that really turn this into a very cool look
July 30, 2011 at 11:25 pm
you captured a lovely quality here – her face is exquisite. the dress and sneakers are great together. I'm impressed with how she pulls it off.
July 31, 2011 at 7:27 pm
Look at that tiny waist. She's so fresh and uncomplicated, it all works like a dream.
August 1, 2011 at 5:55 pm
I adore the feminine dress with the boyish sneakers. Wonderful!
