ah! i love all of it — the print of the dress, the shapes of the dress, sweater, coat and bag along with the shoes. divine.

What a great mix! Floral and fos inspired, military and the delicate detailing on her mary-janes. Love it!

My God! This is EXACTLY my ideal way to dress. Was watching Grey Gardens (again) last night and as Little Edie would say, “It’s the ideal costume for day!” Such a feminine and cool mix of hi/low, nerdy chic as there ever was! J’adore!!!

Lovely shoes and bag.
February 12, 2008 at 9:16 am
Love the colours and the pattern of the dress!

Wow. I don’t think you can pass her by and not notice her. Floral print is so great combined with dark accessories. And the shoes. simply marvelous.
February 12, 2008 at 9:18 am
I always have considered floral prints to be especially grandma-ish. But she does it in a way where it’s youthful, sexy and glam. The military-style coat, tights and mary janes with her understated hair/makeup bring it all together. And her smile is so humble. NICE!

What a contrast with the last woman you showed agaist those stripes! Have we seen that dress before? I love it. And now I see that the grey hose work work as an alternative to black when worn with a bright flowery dress.
February 12, 2008 at 9:40 am
I NEED those shoes! Feminine, but tough with the studs. Beautiful contrast of the bright dress and greys and black.
February 12, 2008 at 9:49 am
your pictures are brilliant.

Gorgeous! I aspire to be this efficient at mixing different inspirational elements.

Great look. Her Pierre Hardy bag is great. I have the messenger style in black and it is my favorite bag – chic and versatile and easy to wear. Her ‘St. Pepper’ coat is so smart!
February 12, 2008 at 10:21 am
oh my god ! this is my ideal dress !
February 12, 2008 at 10:30 am
I think the dress is vintage? Oddly, I have one with redish-pink flowers almost exactly like it.
February 12, 2008 at 10:50 am
I love the layering! This is one of my favorite shots.
Fabulous!!! I love the grey palette mixed with the sharp vivid colors of the dress. I will so add a vibrant vintage dress to my daily grey uniform. [and the bag is icing on the cake!!!]

Fantastic dress, sweater, coat, ugly bag!
February 12, 2008 at 11:01 am
it’s far too cold outside for this. where are you finding these people! i am so unfashionable right now! :(
February 12, 2008 at 11:10 am
Wow! Sweet and sophisticated, a difficult combination to pull off, but this woman has style in spades.

wowza, can we talk about those shoes? anyone know who they are?
popular lady – this is the second style blog i’ve seen her in! i’m especially fond of the bulky sweater hanging out of the fitted-jacket sleeves.
February 12, 2008 at 11:45 am
This is so perfectly unperfectly perfect! The military coat, the heavy grey cardigan with black patent belt, the swingy violet flowered dress and the way her brown bag picks up the trim on her coat sleeve and the bronze leaves on her dress. Plus, don’t even get me started on her tights and shoes. Oh swoon. One of the best ever.
February 12, 2008 at 12:01 pm
I love love the dress!!!
WOW! She manages to layer while maintaining a perfectly nipped-in, femenine silhouette. Everything is just perfect in fit and proportion. She’s magnificent and I aspire to look so effortlessly chic. Well done!

Sart, We went to your exhibit on Saturday – it is wonderful. How did you pick the sizes of the photographs? Did you consider making a few extra large ones near life size to give people a sense of the street scale – just an idea. Great blog, Sart.
February 12, 2008 at 12:16 pm
Hey, thanks for a wonderful blog! Very inspiring and absolutely adorable. Just one question: what camera are you using? The colours and focus are great!
February 12, 2008 at 12:30 pm
Very well done! The proportion is perfect, superb color combination, great mix of textures ;-) Good catch, Scott…
February 12, 2008 at 12:35 pm
I’d say that dress is vintage…. Lovely combination and I’m keeping this one in my inspiration file. Love the patent belt and shoes and the bag is a wonderful touch because a patent bag would’ve been too matchy-matchy.
February 12, 2008 at 12:39 pm
Are those Louboutin shoes? I really like the dress. This is inspiring to me. I have always been a pant person but recently I have decided to make a dress for spirng. I imagine the cut would be something like this, emphasizing the waist. She has taken a classic sillouette and has made it universally hip. To me it is all about the dress and shoes (are those rhinestones?).
February 12, 2008 at 12:49 pm
so well done. her dress is sensational and her coat is beautiful. bravo.
i am so excited for spring!
February 12, 2008 at 12:51 pm
this outfit is brilliant. :) big dress-tights-maryjanes fan! :)
February 12, 2008 at 12:55 pm
Those SHOES! And the color combination just works so well. Someone MUST know where to find those shoes . . . anyone?
February 12, 2008 at 1:26 pm
melissa ventosa from nytimes?
February 12, 2008 at 1:30 pm
I just love you, Sart :)
February 12, 2008 at 1:35 pm
This is quite sweet i think, but the best bits are the bag and shoes.
February 12, 2008 at 1:45 pm
Great, fresh look-lovely. Edgy without being unapproachable. Nice mix of textures/prints. Love your blog! Am enjoying oohing and aahing over the great looks and am very much inspired. Perhaps when the weather warms….
February 12, 2008 at 2:19 pm
For those with questions about the shoes, they appear to be the Mad Mary shoe from Louboutin…….and they can be yours for a mere $865 from Barneys!
February 12, 2008 at 2:30 pm
Very much reminds me of what Diane Von Furstenberg just showed in her fall RTW line at fashion week: feminine printed dresses layered underneath belted, often bulky knit sweaters or coats, and perfectly accessorized. Anyone else see the similarities? Either way, I love it!
February 12, 2008 at 3:15 pm
I believe she is wearing the Louboutin Mad Mary heels. Love them!
February 12, 2008 at 3:56 pm
More inward pointing feet. She looks good though.

February 12, 2008 at 4:35 pm
I love the contrast you given this photo with the lines of the shutter. Superb.
February 12, 2008 at 4:55 pm
Pierre Hardy bag! Nice combination: something old, something new, something grey, something flowered… :)
February 12, 2008 at 4:57 pm
same rollershutter but this time the girl is perfect too! LOVE it..thanks
February 12, 2008 at 5:27 pm
ohh how i love a platform mary jane…
February 12, 2008 at 6:23 pm
she looks great. my friends would probably check my temperature if i wore this dress out, but she pulled it off. hmmmm, maybe i’ll try it.
February 12, 2008 at 7:59 pm
This is nearly my favorite look ever, Sart.
The floral print hopes for Spring, while the greys admit that it’s still Winter. I shan’t even go on about the great fit and shape. It’s obvious.
If I could afford it, I’d dress like this every day. Maybe I can do an affordable imitation.
Thanks for your inspiring me with the finds of your keen eye!
February 12, 2008 at 8:17 pm
Grr…those are the Christian Louboutin shoes I wanted…and what the woman to have them instead! Envy’s reeling his ugly head right about now ;]
February 12, 2008 at 10:03 pm
I love this all. I want a violet dress!
February 13, 2008 at 12:28 am
She did a killer job. Totally elegant, cute, energetic, and formidable!
February 13, 2008 at 3:19 am
Perfect in every way – tres bien
February 13, 2008 at 4:34 am
An undisputably nice combination.
February 13, 2008 at 7:23 am
I adore a summer dress spotting under a winter outfit. Not keen of that dress dough. That hair and that smile are lovely.
February 13, 2008 at 7:40 am
I love this printed dress
February 13, 2008 at 9:14 am
I love how the gold in her dress really brings out the gold rings around the sleeves of her coat. I would have never thought to pair charcoal grey tights with cobalt blue and gold however. The dress is just amazing. I wish I knew who designed it.
February 13, 2008 at 12:28 pm
Great smile, great skin. Love the dress.
February 13, 2008 at 12:35 pm
spring is coming!
February 13, 2008 at 2:14 pm
Needing those Louboutins…
February 13, 2008 at 4:35 pm
This ensemble is absolutely perfect. There is usually one or two things I dislike about most outfits, but I am just fascinated by this one. It’s flawless, I love it.
February 13, 2008 at 4:46 pm
i hate to disagree but this look is a bit too trendy- belted cardigan + florals + studs?? not creative
February 13, 2008 at 4:57 pm
This is wonderful. I love how she belts the layered sweater with the dress. It reminds me of DVF’s fall 08 runway show. fabulous.
February 14, 2008 at 7:22 am
This winter garden is adorable¡
February 15, 2008 at 10:12 am
She looks like a school teacher in rural Maine, circa 1938.
February 15, 2008 at 6:14 pm
Definetly the studded Louboutin Mad Marys from Barney’s. Love them but prefer the off-white version myself.
That dress has a very vintage vibe to me.
February 15, 2008 at 7:56 pm
i love this girls style!! the plain hair teamed with the print dress – a stand out!
February 16, 2008 at 5:31 pm
Everything about this outfit is absolutely perfect. The colors, the styles, even her ponytail all mesh together to create a brilliantly constructed ensemble. I love this.
February 18, 2008 at 12:12 am
great outfit, great colors & textures. but i must say, that brown bag is her downfall, it completely ruins the outfit.
