So simple, stylish and chic. Black can work so well, especially when accessorised with a contrasting colour – loving the cream, oversized, woolen beret

The white accessories make it. I love her hair.

there is a richness to all the [lack of] colors here, and her skin is divine

I love the white beret with the black hair.

Similar concept as the young asian girl in Paris except here, the NYC girl is wearing ballet slippers (which are popular here) where as the girl in Paris wore booties (apparently, big in Europe).

this is modern simplicity at it’s best. i love everything about it, from top to bottom.

I love the contrast between the black and her skin, hat and bag.

Love the coat… especially the buckles at her (high) waist and the collar. I can’t tell whether the it’s constructed to be a high collar or if she’s popped it to keep out the cold… but it’s lovely.

Beautiful outfit! I love the buckle detail on the coat…and the way that the beret looks like a halo…

Chic, beautiful, utter perfection right down to the pursing of the lips

who was saying american girls don’t have lovely legs?

So nice, simple and chic!

Its fun what nyc fashionista sais, ballet slippers is popular in New york, and boots apperantly hip in europe.. What she does not know is that ballet slippers was huge in Europe last year, and that we’re kinda over them. I was wearing my ballet slips while visiting New York last year, and got tons of remarks that I looked like a ballet dancer, no one got them..
Ps. This girl looks amazing! Her karizma is jumping towards me through the screen. wow! Her scin is flawless.

Love the hat, and yet somehow the matching bag makes it even more complete. Unplanned complements?

She looks like a modern russian nesting doll, delicate but strong. strapped in and up with that utilitarian coat keeps the look from looking too feminine-
really simple, perfectly executed outfit.

you all must have a btter computer, I can barely dsee the dark colors, buckles et al.WAAAaaaaaaa!

This look is calling for a more substantial shoe, preferably with a mid-size heel. Ballet slippers with tights and a coat are only marginally better than flip-flops, methinks.

This girl is my twin, I pretty much dress like this everyday.
March 11, 2007 at 1:24 am
If she were smiling, I would almost expect her to tear off her beret and toss it into the air. But she’s not smiling. Lovely image anyway.

I love the patent leather shoes AND the coat. And her hair’s perfectly in place…wow! I like the pout too…it’s quite becoming.

Paris – done beautifully in Soho.

Pulling off the miniskirt and monochrome look perfectly :]
March 11, 2007 at 9:21 am
love the flats, the beret, and her face. but she looks really cold. if so, why wouldn’t she put some pants on?! i understand suffering for fashion to some degree, but i like to be warm in the winter too!
March 11, 2007 at 2:54 pm
I love how the shape of her beret is sort of echoed in the shape of her coat billowing out a bit at the bottom. Very interesting ;)
& I agree with the other commentor who said her charisma & her skin are amazing. Her skin is truly flawless. :)
March 11, 2007 at 4:23 pm
She is beautiful. Her porcelain skin takes this look to a higher level of exquisiteness. She reminds me of Eva Green in “The Dreamers”.
March 11, 2007 at 5:02 pm
exquisite complexion. agree with “amused” about the ballet flats. seems a little askew. I would have worn ankle boots. Love the buckles on the coat. i appreciate the effort made here to work with just 2 colors. the effect is striking.
March 11, 2007 at 7:10 pm
I love this look but I cannot suffer through it due to freezing frozen legs. How/why do women pull it off?
March 11, 2007 at 7:18 pm
I side with “amused” regarding the ballet flats. Tall boots or ankle boots would balance the stylish top half. I love her coat, does anyone know who it’s by?

im not going to lie, ive been laying here for the last 2 hours looking at archives pics and write ups and i feel utterly inspired by a blog! im a 20-something pre-school teacher from iowa (now living in connecticut). . .my idea of style is tempre paint on my kackis. ever since i was a girl i wanted someone to stop me and say, ‘you look amazing can i take your picture?’ im taking notes, i need: a bike, scarf, leggings, possibly find a 70+ amazing beautifully dressed old man, an endearing vulnerability, and an unapologetic flare. ill be in nyc next weekend. . .i wonder if all of that will fit in my nissan sentra? -kesha whitney*

Oh, the Zero Maria Cornejo coat! It’s so beautifully proportioned, and it looks great with this woman’s long legs. Just lovely.
March 12, 2007 at 12:34 pm
The woman is very beautiful, as is the coat and beret. But somebody please make the leggings stop, especially in winter. She looks half-undressed, as does everyone in leggings or tights without a skirt or dress.
March 12, 2007 at 12:36 pm
i’m in love with the black tights patent black flats.
March 18, 2007 at 4:55 am
This is Li. She is one of New York’s prettiest women.
March 19, 2007 at 4:38 pm
Although she is indeed very pretty, I must admit, her outfit is somewhat generic.
