Timeless, really. Makes me wonder why women are afraid of the long skirt.
Also, I hope all is well with you and your family, Sart!

Well,this girl has it all down.What I mean is that since her hair is long so is her skirt and so is her bag. Doesn´t look too interesting.

Cute! So cute!

Maxi skirt done properly–to maximum effect.
May 30, 2007 at 9:40 am
Adorable. And elegant at the same time. This outfit could look so frumpy on someone else but she wears it perfectly. Lush, it’s nearly summer!

I’ve been on the fence about the recent reincarnation of maxi-length skirts, but this has me rethinking my position–I like it.

Love this look, and I usually dislike long jean skirts. TMhis girl makes it work.

I don’t know about this. She’s cute, but that giant skirt is doing nothing for her. I don’t see any creativity (or even good clothing choices) in this outfit.

That skirt is so good!
She looks fantastic!
May 30, 2007 at 11:32 am
perfect. everything’s perfect.

she looks just great. of course she’s gorgeous to begin with but she’s definitely not going with all-on trends here. casual, easy, smart….
and really dig that she’s not wearing gazillion dollar ballet flats or high heels.
someone call out those pants please.

i think that skirt would be dangerous in a larger size, but on this little lady, it accentuates how little she really is. its very flattering. she’s got a great look.
May 30, 2007 at 12:07 pm
I generally abhor long skirts, and although she does manage to pull it off without looking like an old lady, it would be much cuter if they were really wide pants (which is what I thought she was wearing at first glance).

I love the small feet under the volume of a skirt.
May 30, 2007 at 12:16 pm
cute girl and she looks nice in that dress and the flats are right.
May 30, 2007 at 12:24 pm
Don’t like it, maybe, is it, because i don’t like jeans skirts.
May 30, 2007 at 12:38 pm
charming – but really it’s all about that gorgeous hair…
May 30, 2007 at 3:21 pm
Great 70′s style skirt! She really fit in that long length too.
May 30, 2007 at 4:05 pm
How NYU of her.

With all these short skirts around the city, it’s pretty refreshing to see a young woman sporting a longer hem. She wears it well- it’s modest without looking dowdy.
May 30, 2007 at 4:50 pm
Adorable. I love dark denim and large hems.
May 30, 2007 at 8:21 pm
Very Marc Jacobs. She fits that whole lifestyle too – young yet erudite, collegiate, and yet so stylishly urban. She is the epitome of a muse.

I am totally surprised by this!! I didn’t expect to like the long denim skirt because it’s religious and conservative look but it totally rocks on her.
I looked at the photo for a long time to find out what is different about it. I think it’s the interesting position of front pockets, the stitch detailing a few inches above the hemline and the sexy tank top.
May 30, 2007 at 9:38 pm
It’s the classic formula—fitted on top, volume on the bottom. Works every time…for me.
I also like the pocket detail of the skirt. Looks like it’s based on a “workwear” design; very soon to be ultra trendy.
May 30, 2007 at 10:08 pm
Navy + dark denim is my favorite combination – classy, yet laid back. I love her look & long skirts, in general (with flats, please).
May 30, 2007 at 10:25 pm
hmm, i don’t think so… those big pockets(?) are so weirdly placed.
May 30, 2007 at 11:27 pm
Long skirts are a favorite of mine! Just wanted to say thanks for blogging, I moved to LA two years ago and really miss NYC street fashion. Sometimes I’d walk to work and run across someone that looked so great, I was inspired to draw it before I forgot. I miss feeling inspired like that, so this blog satisfies that craving for elegant clothing! Thank you so much!

It’s the simple, playful flats that make the outfit. A fussy or strappy shoe would have been a disaster.
May 31, 2007 at 4:48 am
Good use of the longer length. Simple and effective. Notice the flat shoes – nothing else would look this good with it.
May 31, 2007 at 8:17 am
So demure! She’s lovely!
May 31, 2007 at 9:35 am
how tall is she, sart? i can’t imagine this would work on anything but a wisp of a girl.
May 31, 2007 at 9:37 am
So charming, so well done!
May 31, 2007 at 11:12 am
One of YOUR BEST yet, Sart! Love the young lady, love her dress, love the fact that she looks like a lady. Classy, elegant, subtle, appropriate for time and place. Actually, she’d be appropriate anywhere, thus her universal appeal.
You know, for many of us in the hinterlands, you are our choice for understanding fashion out in the big metro world. I appreciate your work. xoxo, Lady

By the looks of it, she’s just about to chuck the coffee and the bag and break into an iPod dance.
Yes that would really be something to see.
May 31, 2007 at 7:57 pm
Cute as a button! I like how the tight torso balances the structure of the skirt. Is it a skirt or palazzo pants?
June 1, 2007 at 1:34 am
Oh……I just adore this. Her outfit is simple, comfortable, cool and she’s just so darn cute.
June 2, 2007 at 10:20 am
she is adorable and pulls it off well
June 2, 2007 at 11:59 am
i love how her top is tucked into her skirt. it makes her torso look even smaller, and eccentuates her flat tummy. so cute!
June 4, 2007 at 6:01 pm
I love this look. Personly, since I don’t have the gams of the Italian Vogue editor(0), I prefer a long skirt.
June 6, 2007 at 11:54 pm
The library’s looking great in the background too. HA…take that Columbia! Once again, NYU representin’ on the Sartorialist.
Thanks for your amazing work Sarto!

I love it… I wonder what she's listeng to
