    so very flattering on her, and the shoes just complete the look…even if they are difficult to walk in down the cobblestone sidewalks.

    I’m not a fan of the lucite heel on her shoes, but I love the purple shoes on the other woman, and the yellow trainers – what a fortuitous shot!

    the dress is fab and I love how she’s skewed the distribution of her jewelry toward the symmetrical. also, she could be juliette binoche’s doppelganger.

    In response about the purple shoes they are YSL, this season you can just about catch them in stores now before all the sales are over

    For the dress i have no idea but the lady looks absolutely gorgeous.

    She resembles that character from the comedy central Strangers With Candy. Of course, she’s actually chic and doesn’t wear as much makeup…

    Sart, you’ve done it. You always have beautiful outfits, great style, goregeous people on your blog, but this is the woman I want to be. I’m printing this out and putting it on the door of my closet, so that every time I reach for a pair of skinny jeans or something else that’s way too trendy and slovenly, I’ll see her and remember — “Oh. This is how I’m supposed to do it.” Thanks for helping me in my 12-step sartorial taste recovery program…..

    i love the dress and the shoes! they both look traditional with a very modern twist. the more i look those shoes, the more they appeal to me. in fact, i’ll take a pair of every pair of shoes in this picture.

    The purple shoes are the infamous YSL tribute heels, in the higher heel version.
    I believe the woman in the navy dress is wearing Lanvin heels from this season — perhaps her dress is Lanvin as well?

    I love the color (navy!!) and funked-up zippered drape of this vintage-inspired look–how much more elegant and soignee she appears than her rather frazzled friend in the background. Cool, composed, chic! LOVE it! (Who made the dress?? Inquiring minds MUST know!)

    Gor-geous! I like inventing captions for these pictures. Here’s one for the Lady in Navy:

    Am I Juliette Binoche’s handsome cousin? Am I the mysterious librarian always checking out the feminist theory? Am I about to read an underling the riot act before calmly and effortlessly making my 9AM press conference? Who knows? But I am so very, very pretty.
