Wow, I really don’t care for this at all. The woman is beautiful, and the shot gorgeous, but the proportions and the booties..I don’t know. It’s not for me.

Great effect of using gray in an eye-catching way. I even enjoy the shorter dress w/the gray ankle boots, which I typically don’t like. Good look.

i´m shure your are tyred of reading this, and your ego will grow more and more, for each time someone writes you complements for your work, but your snaps are just joy for my eyes.

I can’t decide if I like this dress or not.
September 16, 2007 at 1:03 pm
Boy, did she ever get that look RIGHT.
September 16, 2007 at 1:05 pm
Slouchy boots are soooooo cool – and she looks amazing with that dress, boots and bag!
September 16, 2007 at 1:13 pm
perfected!..the gathered high neckline just flatters the ensemble completely..except for the bag maybe that leaves room for improvement..but overall, the monochrome thing going on absolutely complements her dark skin..superb!
September 16, 2007 at 1:15 pm
minimalist or uninspired? either way it makes looks her look like a liinebacker…
September 16, 2007 at 1:25 pm
The way the collar of her dress mimics the neck of her shoes is fantastic.

I could never wear this, but I love it — so clean — 3 simple elements (boot, dress, bag) that make such a strong statement.

I don’t think the gray flatters her skin color. And here’s another bag dress. When I see these dresses I have a feeling that the women will look back in 10 years and say, “What were we thinking?” Such a beautiful young woman who could probably wear anything.

Hmm. This is a touch dress to pull of if you’re busty. For that, this doesn’t work for me. Nice legs though.

Let me preface this remark by saying that I’m not one of the commenters who leaps out to say “IT SHOULD BE TIGHTER!” every time a female appears wearing anything that isn’t spandex… I love flowy things that float away from the body. However, I’ve grown weary of sack dresses with sweater hems. I’ve been feeling it’s goofier than it is edgy lately. I love the details around the neck, the pockets, and the boots, and I could definitely do without those sleeves, but what it really comes down to is the sack-looking midsection and that hem which, combined without pants, skirt, belt, or jacket to pull the outfit together and add more structure, are unattractive features.

I detset ankle boots of that sort, but she looks wonderful in them i guess it is all to do with her lovely long legs,she looks lovely
September 16, 2007 at 4:01 pm
Ok I love this dress. you’ve got to start asking people what they are wearing, because this is driving me crazy!!

Re: bootie comments,
I have to agree that boots of ankle height can look very bad very easily. But, throwing out a guess based on what I’ve observed via Sart, I suspect the key is a very emphasized ankle taper, achieved by wearing tights, socks, or leggings (or nothing in the calf area at all) instead of, e.g., jeans, because even skinny denim has a bit of bulk. It’s not a look I’d personally aspire to so I skip the booties entirely but I think it’s adorable on others!
i love this dress, but i feel like she’s a bit too busty to be wearing it. shapeless dresses like that look better on smaller chested women in my opinion. and i think that if maybe the booties were wedges and suede, the whole outfit would look better.

This woman is beautiful, and her warmth and attitude shine through — but she does more for the dress than the dress does for her.
September 16, 2007 at 6:17 pm
It is a very dramatic look, but I find it a bit top heavy. She looks very tall, and amazonian. Beautiful face.
September 16, 2007 at 6:28 pm
Hmmm not sure about this one. The proportions seem all wrong. The dress is wearing her rather than the other way around.
September 16, 2007 at 7:42 pm
Striking! I could never carry it off but she’s working it.
September 16, 2007 at 8:35 pm
The dress reminds me of what Tina Turner wore in Mad Max, Beyond Thunderdome.
September 16, 2007 at 8:37 pm
I really think she has the perfect body and proportions. I wish more designers would design for this body type.
September 16, 2007 at 8:59 pm
shapeless? yes. gorgeous? definitely.
September 16, 2007 at 11:07 pm
Anonymous at 1:15, I had the same observation about the linebacker thing- just not a flattering cut across the shoulders; also- boots! people are out officially wearing boots in NYC today! I saw them myself- does this mean summer’s really over? Booo… Time really does go faster the older you get. Bruno’s said they’re going to stop serving iced cappucinos any day now.

I absolutely hate the grey on grey.
September 17, 2007 at 1:30 am
just to let you know, this dress is from ZARA and they have it in a few colors right now…
September 17, 2007 at 2:19 am
i agree, this dress works best for flatter chested people.
September 17, 2007 at 3:09 am
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m almost sure that it is a Zara dress

I’d file this under “wrong bra kills hot dress”. When I put my finger over across the chest/underarm area and imagine it being smoother, with a bra that takes that shelf in and down a couple inches, her whole body looks much better.
But that’s if she wants to optimize the line of the dress. If she stays with this bra which keeps her so … uh – perky – there are undoubtedly plenty of men who could find it in their hearts to forgive the lapse in fashion perfection.

You’ve got to have great legs for a dress like that.
September 17, 2007 at 8:24 am
The girl is pretty.She has nice legs and the shoes fit well.What I don´t like is the dress-horrible.
September 17, 2007 at 10:17 am
eh. i think i agree with whoever said it makes her look like a linebacker – i think this look would be complete with a nice thick belt to add some shape to the dress. otherwise her head looks too small for her body. i like the booties though! and she does have GREAT legs!
September 17, 2007 at 11:59 am
I personally wouldn’t go for this look, but her confidence totally pulls this off.

Hot, hot, hot! Great shot, Sart. This is a beautiful young lady who would probably look great in anything, but I’m not sure about this dress (or shirt). It looks like gift-wrapping. And I’m not sure about the little boots either. This woman has a pair of amazing legs that would look wonderful encased in some knee-high leather boots.
September 17, 2007 at 3:17 pm
It’s like a Reuben sandwich for me. I don’t like any of the ingredients, but when you put them together like this, it’s delicious.
September 18, 2007 at 3:53 am
I like the shoes but I think the dress is a little too generic for me. Also, the colour is just too boring. Bring some colour back!!

I think she’s gorgeouos but that is NOT a flattering dress on her.
September 18, 2007 at 7:12 pm
I’m sorry, but I wore something like this in 1983, and it didn’t look good then either.

My mother always said “if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all” so….I’m not saying a word.
September 19, 2007 at 8:47 am
that dress is from Zara sure, I tried it on, but I did not like it on me, she looks great
September 24, 2007 at 4:14 pm
it looks like a bag.. a very unattractive bag

Her shoulders, her chest, her legs tell a story – the bag dress requires you to fill in the blank. Great tantalizing mystery of the majestic.
