    I’m digging the glasses and the purse. The bloomers do add an interesting element to her shape.

    Gladiator woman from Milan looks amazing in that dress. Where is it from??? The woman walking next to her looks great, too. They both look so chic and simple at the same time. I cringe at over-accessorizing, these women show that you don’t need much embellishment to look good – just your own vitality and confidence.

    Dress in picture 1 too short.

    Love the Greek sandals in picture 2.
    Very martial.

    I too like the third girl best.The dark red bag and her sunglasses are a nice combination.Her hair somehow fits the black outfit well.

    Re: the Amazon with the gladiator buskins– Does anyone have the guts to dress like that in NY? And I mean in real life, not club wear. NY seems to come off rather weak in comparison with Milan and Paris, no?

    love the floral dress.
    she would’ve looked even better/more summery w/ her hair up…

    not a fan of the gladiator sandals.

    The young lady in the third photo looks very pleasant considering i interrupted her enjoyment of a cupcake!

    -Wowee, the Italians are serious about their gladiators this summer, aren’t they?
    -Sart, I’m from LA and it’s nice to see that you don’t have anything against flip flops when worn properly.
    -Also, I would love to see girl #1′s dress in real life. The picture makes it look stiff and tent like, but I imagine it’s actually very fluid.

    For a second there I thought the last woman was Ms. Michelle Pfeiffer. But all 3 ladies look lovely.

    Why oh WHY do people wear flip flops, wear closed toe shoes or nice sandals, not flip flops. It cheapens the whole look.

    I wonder… If the young lady in #3 removed her glasses… Would her features still look like Michelle Pfeiffer’s? A lovely fresh bouquet of pictures, this one.

    The gladiator sandals seem a little fetishy.

    Then again, that whole movie 300 seemed a little fetishy.

    the woman in the third photo looks a little bit like michelle pfeiffer(sp?) at that age. well, in bloomers. sart, i thought at first you had called HER a cupcake and was quite shocked at how out of character that remark was for you. should have known better…

    I love the black dress, actually the whole outfit (amazing shoes or sandals) of the woman in Milan, but I do like the style of the outfit of the one in Williamsburg, Brooklyn..

    I think they all look great. I’m sure that all of these women, like myself, have loads of shoes but there is nothing like a pair of flip flops on dog days.

    That is the first pair of gladiator sandals that I’ve liked, in part because the combo with the dress is spectacular. As someone else said, that’s unembellished fabulousness.

    Where to get bloomers like this? They are the perfect solution to short dresses when one doesn’t have particularly good legs or want to wear leggings.

    The third girl reminds me of a younger Julie Deply

    Those “bloomers” look like the spandex “bike shorts” we used to wear under our skirts in 1989.

    It seems like an offshoot of the footless tights/leggings under dress/skirt look (also of the late ’80′s/early ’90′s) seen everywhere on my cousin’s college campus today.

    I have to say that don’t love either look.

    Flip flops, as well as Crocs or any other rubbish rubber footwear is one more, very significant argument, that the human being is made imperfect! Please please please people come to your senses… I shall never understand anyone who believes that those footwears CAN actually be purchased, or even worse, be worn!

    and once again, i am very pleased to see how Mrs Battaglia seems to be always so confident to wear whatever she feels like wearing (except anything called Crocs or flipflops!!!).

    The girls in black look fab, esp Boots Girl! The girl in the sack…nice colour, nice print, no doubt it’s cool but normally I would choose to camp in a tent, not wear it. (And btw, I thought girl #3 looked like Emmanuelle Beart.)

    I saw those long strappy sandal-boots the other day and made fun of them in my head. They look okay on her but I would caution… anyone else against them. Unless they actually ARE for gladiator-fantasy or s&m, in which case keep it off the streets. Heh, heh.
