    I love your blog because you show everyday outfits and not just weird wacky or fashion forward stuff.
    She looks lovely, her hair is beautiful and her clothes complement and look like they are doing a good job of keeping her warm.
    Getting dressed everyday and braving the world can be an effort and to be inspired by your photos is wonderful food for thought.
    Thank you!

    Grey looks best on redheads AND in autumn. Something about the overall light being so delicate as compared to summer when it can be harsh.

    I like the quirkiness of this outfit, but I find it just a bit sloppy. My favorite part though is her hair. Absolutely lovely color.

    this girl is fantastic: i covet how good she looks while being completely aware of the time of year. adn all the pieces took thought to put them together, without looking done. this is wonderful. it also doesnt hurt that redheads are stunning.

    I have long, red hair; though not as copper-colored as the woman in the pic. I love wearing rust, copper and bronze colors. I found a metallic bronze raincoat in a thrift shop recently and bought it because I liked it so much with my hair and coloring. It’s a good color to pair with a neutral like grey, navy blue or black. That’s basically my wardrobe colors. I’ve learned so much reading this blog, thanks!

    I have (dyed) red hair about the same shade as this. I had never really thought about wearing similar tones to play up the colour – I normally go for greens and browns to complement. But this is a good and simple idea! Thanks lady in the photo – and thanks to Sart for noticing…

    Such a lovely jacket. I wonder if it is vintage? I wonder if she chose it because it is so good with her hair?

    She looks very pretty and distinctive, yet approachable. Unassuming beauty is a treasure.

    I actually love the soft sandy pink coat that she is wearing, really compliments the hair and brings it out.

    The hair and scarf are both beautiful. I love the expression on her face. Do the people you take pics of provide their own poses or do you ask them to smile etc? Because either way they always have facial expressions that fit the outfits.

    I do like her look very much, enjoying the play of pattern and porportion, but I think her scarf is so close to her hair color, a nice color on her, but it does sort of look like hair wraped around in front.

    Actually she is cute;the red hair and the same tunes in her clothes and bag. She could have chosen different shoes though. The ones she´s wearing look too much like slippers.

    I’m just enamored with the way her ensemble trains the eye to travel from the bag to scarf to her dazzling hair. There’s such a subtlety, and yet, at the same time, obvious balance between dual color schemes.

    the hair. the scarf. the bag.
    and then the volume-balance.

    some people simply know how to dress elegantly, by finding the right balance and knowing their strength.
    This lady certainly pulls off her wonderful hair.

    At first glance I didn’t like the shoes, but after closer inspection and some thought I now think they’re great. They’re a nice alternative to the ballet flats that we’re all tired of. And they go so well with that skirt shape and length.

    I also like how the black works with the gray and pink in this outfit.

    She is the exception, not the rule. So many red heads I know don’t have a clue how to incorporate their hair colour into their wardrobe.

    Since so many previous posts are about this womyn’s hair, I must pipe in and say that I don’t think her scarf compliments her hair at all. The colour of the scarf just competes with hair, and alas, neither stand out.

    Now, her shoes are a different story. They’re so whimsical.

    I have a question for you, Sart: Do womyn in NYC wear toques or mittens? Honestly–isn’t the East Coast rather frigid? Also, do you know from what material her leggings were made? I’d just like to know because my legs would freeze if I wore mine at this time of year.

    Thanks for supplying a daily does of fashion-for-thought!

    There is something almost pixie-like about this, and I mean that in the best way possible. Its such a simple and natural look, almost as if she just woke up and threw stuff on to cover her else, and the result is this beautiful outfit. Natural, unforced beautiful outfit-so nice.

    Well, I guess I am the one slightly dissenting vote.

    I like the shoes okay, but not with the volume around her hips. Or something. Something about how they look too small.

    There. I said it. Beautiful hair though and as usual, great photography.

    Is the Sartorialist joining the sisterhood?

    I picked up the latest Vogue USA yesterday and recognized one of your photos–Chloe Sevigny in a shirt cable-knit dress and booties. (I hadn’t realized it was Chloe; she looked particularly good in that photo.)

    Anyway, I went straight to the photo credits and saw that the shot was attributed to “The Sartorialista.” Thought you’d want to know!

    It took me a few lookings to sort out exactly what I found ‘not quite’ about the pretty young lady’s look.

    It’s not the overall stacking of volumes, which are a bit bulky, but not overwhelmingly so. It’s not the rather loud and relatively bright giant bag, which at least has some tonal and pattern relationship with the rest of the look. It’s not even the tiny grey oxfords which look rather vulnerable and little-girlish beneath so much bulk on top.

    It’s the dead-black tights with what is an otherwise soft tonal study in greys, taupe, cream and russet (notwithstanding the peek of navy knit top at the wrist) that throws the other elements off, I think. I find the black too harsh, too empty and too unharmonious with the rich colour key set for the ensemble by the lady’s extraordinary hair.

    Dark taupe, forest green, deep brown, even navy opaque hose might have served the same functions (coverage and warmth, one presumes) without being quite so dissonant. I’m a firm believer that anything can be made to work; perhaps a black bag up top would balance the volume of the legs. But here is an an example of how, contrary to popular belief and practise, black does not go with everything.

    I have to agree with amed studio. I think it’s not that the look is sloppy, because sloppy can be good too. It’s not the bag contrasting excessively with the rest of the outfit, since the bag picks up the colour not only of her hair but of the scarf.

    It’s the black tights. It’s true, black really does not go with everything. It visually breaks the outfit up. Brown or grey tights would pull this outfit together, but the black tights are making it incoherent in my eyes.
