    can I just say how pleased I am to see a dress bought from one of new york’s many street vendors on here? I don’t love the boots, but the dress, hair, and face are all fab.

    Summer breeze makes me feel fine. I like the loftiness of her dress. A bit heavy–the bag and boots. She manages though.

    First, this woman is beautiful. She has great hair, beautiful skin and teeth, and a great body.

    Nice dress and jewelry. Her dress is perfect for the spring and summer. Nice use of color. I also like her gold jewelry.

    I really don’t like her boots or her way-to-big-for-her-frame handbag. IMHO, her boots ruin the outfit; they make her look dumpy and throw off the focal point. The color of her bag works well, but it’s just too big for her.

    I’m sure I won’t be the only one to comment this way: Love the dress and other accessories. The boots – not so much.

    I’m most curious to hear what the ladies think of those boots. I think any bulky, pancake-flat Ugg type boots shorten (and thicken) the lower legs unflatteringly, and it’s a look that I was happy to see pass out of favour among style-conscious young women a couple of years ago.

    But this is a lovely photograph nd I love her smile. Perhaps she has a change of shoes in her bag…

    Loved it until I got to the boots! Oh no. It’s just too incongrous to be wearing a floaty summer dress with suede (shearling?) boots. And a sandal would be much more flattering.
    Great curly hair though!

    yikes. she looks like a midget in that billowy dress and no-shape boots.

    The print on her dress is lovely, but the combination is unflattering

    Wow. The dress is great but the boots weigh the whole thing down. It’s spring, ladies!!

    Great printed dress and necklaces, but perhaps I am just a little less adventurous as I am not in favour of her choice of bag or footwear. Some strappy sandals would be perfect, albeit somewhat predictable…

    My first thought was: a young Madonna Ciccone when she was a dancer in the late 70s headed for NYC. Beautiful, unique, and very funky.

    I love the boots with the dress! It makes the look not so expected. Flats or sandals would have not done this fab woman justice.

    Have some courage to mix it up, people!

    Please don’t tell me those hideous boots are out of style – I’m moving back to Upstate NY and those boots are the only way I can live through winter!

    Great dress, the boots and bag give it a slight ‘bag lady chic’ which I don’t think was the intended effect…

    The boots are tragic, the rest is great. She doesn’t look like a New Yorker to me, though (and for what it’s worth, anonymous 9:28, as a long-time resident, this isn’t what I think of as NY style at all).

    Ok, I thought the same thing about the boots but then I looked at it some more and changed my mind. This woman embodies feminine sensuality. She is working the whole Earth mother, tribal boho look. I love it!

    Great photo, Sart. I read your blog everyday. Keep up the good work!

    Everything’s great except her boots. She should’ve worn something else. They’re too bulky for her summer-y outfit.

    ohhh, i thought this photo was just so surprising and wonderful!! such a fresh and sweet vibe! and still sexy at the same time. a nice switch from some of the usual hip-ness, you know what i mean? ah, she’s just GORGEOUS and summer… regardless of her darn boots! love it.
    p.s. to the comment from norway- she is very vintage N.Y.C. in my opinion :)

    It’s funny, Sart. Before I read the headline, I thought this photo was taken at the shore! I thought the street was sand and I thought, “Aw, Sart has started Memorial Day Holiday early. Good for him…”

    Have a lovely holiday.

    I actually like that she’s wearing the boots. She looks ultra-femme and, more importantly, comfortable. A flat sandal would be okay but too typical (since it’s what every fashion mag dictates).

    That is a wonderful outfit, very hip and fresh and springlike. Wonderful – except for the boots, which really are tragic. But maybe that’s all she had time to grab that morning. We all have those days, I suppose. In any case she seems quite comfortable as she is and doesn’t seem to care what other people think, so that counts for something.

    To me it looks as if everything is falling off her- the bag is a sack and it must be real difficult to walk in those clumsy boots.The dress doesn´t appeal to me either.

    Gorgeous girl. Stunning smile. Terrible outfit. There’s a reason all the fashion mags pair this style of dress with sandals.

    without them, I think it would loose the sense of credible funkiness I think she was going for

    the dress is very cute, love the cashmere print, the boots are an original choice but they make the dress become much less feminine and it’s a pity, would have gone for slave sandals.

    Whatever anyone thinks of big suede boots generally, I think hers actually work really well with this outfit. If she’d worn boring old flat sandals there would be no funky edge to the look. The bag must be hell to carry, though.
