Simple and summer-y. Neutrals with a nice pop of color, I like it.

I would itch for that cardigan!!!!!!
May 30, 2007 at 9:33 am
She looks so great! The dress, the shoes, the bag, the hair and the smile!
May 30, 2007 at 9:34 am
For a long time I’ve admired certain women’s ability to wear dresses with that silhouette. She looks fantastic. Also, she’s added that cute little cardi, and she wears it with aplomb. I like that look and wish I could do it myself.
I love the blue bag, and though it takes center stage–even over the shoes–it’s not O.T.T.
May 30, 2007 at 9:39 am
I love this. All of it. The cute easy dress, the effortless cardigan, the shoes (!), the bag. Love it.
May 30, 2007 at 9:59 am
Pretty blue bag, and I love the gold circle espadrilles. Lovely!
May 30, 2007 at 10:10 am
the white blue and yellow are just so pleasant to look at…
May 30, 2007 at 10:11 am
Look at how cute and trendy we are: mini shift dress (check), wedges (check), frame bag (check), baloon sleeve jacket (check), hair band (check check check!)
But, to her defense, that is EXACTLY how you wear all these summer trends. Bravo, miss.

i love that this is a younger look on an older person, and yet still looks appropriote

Those shoes! Those shoooeees! Yum.

I think this is one of the rare instances when I like the trapeze baby doll. Too often it looks overly trendy, but this lady looks relaxed about it.

And the lesson is…hang around outside the LV store if you want to get photographed by Sart
May 30, 2007 at 11:23 am
Sexy, open and inviting. What a pretty smile! Just makes you think of summer, lemonade and ice cream

Oh, it simply does not get any better. Fraîche comme une rose!

looks like someone took dance all through junior high. it paid off. she’s got a beautiful smile.
May 30, 2007 at 12:14 pm
I think the proportions are all wrong.
May 30, 2007 at 12:52 pm
wow, she looks amazing! i love the tone-on-tone…how sophisticated yet summery and light-hearted at the same time.
May 30, 2007 at 12:54 pm
I thought this blog was about style, not fashion.
May 30, 2007 at 1:02 pm
She looks like a modern grecian goddess!There’s something in the water in NYC – women there really get themselves and they really get fashion!Great picture Sart!

Another Louis Vuitton worker???
Beautiful Suhali bag
May 30, 2007 at 1:31 pm
What a tremendously sexy, late-30is, 40ish or post-40ish woman. Wow, wow, wow. Not sure about the meaning of such a woman showing so much leg, but she pulls it off devastatingly. Wow.
May 30, 2007 at 1:41 pm
those shoes are absolutely beautiful.
May 30, 2007 at 1:58 pm
May 30, 2007 at 2:20 pm
I love the colors, and her smile.
May 30, 2007 at 2:48 pm
whoa! what a great shot, a great dress, a great smile, a great tan!
May 30, 2007 at 3:02 pm
Love the dress and the bubble sleeved sweater… she looks so comfy…
May 30, 2007 at 3:11 pm
looooove that dress
May 30, 2007 at 3:34 pm
Oh, my! Am I blushing?
May 30, 2007 at 3:47 pm
Cool, calm, and collected!
May 30, 2007 at 4:25 pm
Beautiful smile, but the clothes don’t really do her justice. I think this is the case where the trend and the person/body type don’t seem to correspond.
May 30, 2007 at 4:49 pm
Oh, wow. I love it, and the shoes and shot of yellow just make it amazing. Effortless glamour.
May 30, 2007 at 5:46 pm
It’s a beach dress–even in the summer NYC is the city.
May 30, 2007 at 6:15 pm
wow, that’s a very nice outfit :)
May 30, 2007 at 6:26 pm
That smile, the way the sun’s bathing the right side of her neck and shoulder, the legs crossed just so, that face…
Clothes, eh? Oh fine, fine…
But that smile, those lips… [Sigh] from guy – about to get back to work – in Scotland.
Wow! Scott… Thanks.

There is something so quintessentially “last week of May” about this look. The colour pallet being decidedly summer, but the cardigan suggesting still a hint of spring in the air. Sweet, delicate and endearing all around.
May 30, 2007 at 7:13 pm
She looks great. What a good look for the early days of summer. Despite the bag hanging off her right shoulder and then her purse in her right hand – I think this look really works.
May 30, 2007 at 7:25 pm
can someone tell me how tall the sartorialist is?
I think I saw him in SoHo today…
May 30, 2007 at 8:15 pm
I like the monochromatic color scheme but the style of the dress–specifically the length–and the bolero—looks a bit grannyish—doesn’t do much for me.
May 30, 2007 at 8:46 pm
I like her bag!

Wow! What an amazing photo!?!?
That trapeze/baby doll dress is a hard one to pull off but she did it perfectly. She has the long legs and the swan like neck to make this dress work for her Anything less will make it look like Courtney Love.

May 30, 2007 at 11:20 pm
it’s all in that bag!AMAZING!
May 30, 2007 at 11:43 pm
Is a frame bag really considered trendy anymore? Considering the LV Suhali L’Ingenieux, though GORGEOUS, is at least 3 years old, I don’t think the frame is still The It Bag style. THE frame bag was probably the Celine Clandestine bag, right? 2 years ago. So you see what I mean.
Now if she’d been carrying a quilted Chloe Bay, she’d be much closer to trendy.
see, i think the detail is what makes a look stylish. and i think a gorgeous blue Louis Vuitton bag in a timeless style, even one several seasons old, keeps her from being simply trendy, and gives her a bit of personal style. not to mention she’s so fresh and adorable looking that I bet she’d make Old Navy look good …

It appears to me that you are posting many more women than men of late. Please find a better balance.
May 31, 2007 at 12:10 am
i have absolutely no complaints about this outfit whatsoever. her confidence and grace pulls this bit together even more-so. great find; bravo, sart! :)
May 31, 2007 at 12:11 am
p.s. ESPADRILLES!!! (hahha, toldjasoooo…)
May 31, 2007 at 1:50 am
She is cute, and the colors are refreshing. Great bag and shoes too.
However, I think that she’s working too many trends at once. Also, I don’t think that the dress and cardigan flatter her figure…where IS her figure???
May 31, 2007 at 2:47 am
Sartorialist–My friend and I have continually discussed the photos your website this past year. Both of us mentioned your website in each other’s yearbook. I’m sure we’ll talk about this outfit at school tomorrow. :)
May 31, 2007 at 3:05 am
Sart, do all these girls have such great smiles walking down the street, or does everyone just glow when you say you like their outfit? Either way, it’s nice to see.
May 31, 2007 at 4:47 am
Summer’s here! Love this
May 31, 2007 at 6:17 am
oooh i love that bag. i’ve only ever seen it in white but blue’s perfect for summer.
May 31, 2007 at 8:17 am
She’s divine! So elegant and simply chic. The blue and yellow are perfect with the neutrals of her dress.
May 31, 2007 at 8:37 am
How fresh she looks and I love the pale blue bag.
May 31, 2007 at 10:47 am
lovely. love the polish on the toes but not the fingers.love the colors. love the shape of the dress and i think that broad hem keeps it feeling perfectly appropriate for the city, just refined enough. great shoes.
May 31, 2007 at 11:07 am
Very feminine and appropriate for a “summer in the city” look. Young, carefree, but ladylike for this particular day and age.Lovely shot, Sart. xoxo, Lady
May 31, 2007 at 1:41 pm
I could kill for that LV bag! =)
May 31, 2007 at 4:21 pm
This woman is very well put together. It looks effortless. But her smile is what really caught me. It is what makes her gorgeous to looks at.
May 31, 2007 at 5:36 pm
For some reason, I’m just not on board here. The bag is gorgeous but I’m not so sure it flows with her very billowy dress and slouchy cropped cardigan. This just annoys me…sorry.
May 31, 2007 at 6:05 pm
Graceful, radiant in such small light clothes. She conveys the timeless joy of summer.
May 31, 2007 at 8:16 pm
best hem of the season
June 1, 2007 at 11:45 pm
What amazes me about this outfit is the fact that she’s showing a ton of skin but, unlike the young lady above her, she doesn’t look too bare. She looks like summer, but not like the beach, if that difference makes any sense.
June 2, 2007 at 5:25 pm
I sooooo want that bag. And I’m not even a fan of the color blue…
June 5, 2007 at 3:12 am
I love that she managed to work a several seasons old Louis bag into her look. WONDERFUL!
August 26, 2007 at 8:26 pm
Easy, breezy, beautiful….
