Welcome to London…right down to the sly pose, quintessentially quirky British.
September 22, 2006 at 7:38 am
Thanks Sart for reminding us women that we should and can look feminine and pretty!

My, oh my, she is cute in every sense of the word! Great picture as well, love this site!

Cute. I used to walk down that street every day going to University. It was cool during fashion week. Check out the V&A museum, they used to have a great fashion/style section.

At last, something besides flip-flops!
I can see that this woman has the same issue that I have – the ID badge as a fashion spoiler. You get all dressed, looking good for work, nice dress, good necklace, and then once you get there you’re saddled with the ID badge.
You have to wear it or be carted off by guards in decidedly unfashionable attire, but it it’s always there distracting the eye from the neckline area.
London Lady – I share your tag!

Very sweet dress. I’m hoping she has some lovely shoes tucked away in her bag.

Welcome to London!
I’m glad you caught some sun yesterday – you will need your brollie for the next few days. I think that yesterday was the last glorious burst of summer sadly.
I love this Minnie-Mouse style dress with the old fashioned sneaker and the red detail on the top of the sock.
Make sure you visit Shoreditch and Brick Lane while you’re here!! xx

I love London fashion! This dress captures the “desperate to convince myself that it’s still summer” thing all the women do.
Can’t wait for more!

…or is it a white dot dress?
September 22, 2006 at 10:41 am
I love the dots on her dress! They are just the right size!

While she may be beautiful, the dress and accessories are atrocious. The work ID around the neck and the hat (half Gehry half gift wrap bow) seal the deal for me.

hmmmmm… dress, yes. the shoes, a big no.
September 22, 2006 at 11:36 am
Love the dress, not the bag though…is that pearls around her neck? Not well with sneakers…
September 22, 2006 at 11:54 am
Love the dress! Not so nuts about the sneakers, but she’s probably the most comfortable woman in the tents.
What about wearing white shoes after Labor day??
September 22, 2006 at 12:13 pm
I don’t like anything about her outfit, but she’s lovely. A pretty enough girl can withstand unappealing clothes. And at least her feet won’t hurt.
September 22, 2006 at 12:14 pm
It’s incredible !!! I’m so shy and I can’t wear this beatiful dress.It’s wonderful !!!

The shade of red is beautiful, and the layered necklaces are relaxed (and not too costume), but I hope she has different shoes in her bag. White “Keds” are for junior high gym.

Welcome to London. Enjoy the rain! and the very pretty young things such as this lass. You do know you have a great job, don’t you?
September 22, 2006 at 1:35 pm

This ensemble look reads a bit Chiswick to me (think Stepford Wife). From the pearls, to the bag, to the shoes. I’m reminded of rocker Shirley Manson from the band Garbage, who many years ago in a video, took an eerily similar red dress, shortened it considerably, and donned black boots. Now that look was ironic and hot. This look is, unfortunately, neither.
September 22, 2006 at 2:31 pm
Mmm – not sure i like this one – a bit too Minnie Mouse for me. And slouching doesn’t help either …
September 22, 2006 at 2:52 pm
Classic. I don’t know many women that could pull that off but she does so gracefully.

Very cute, very comfy-looking, very Spring-like!
September 22, 2006 at 3:26 pm
I love how she actually plays up the Disney, Minnie Mouse aspect w/ the white shoes. Not for me, but she totally pulls it off.
September 22, 2006 at 3:49 pm
Very lovely dress and cute pose…but I’m not sure about that shoes with this lovely dress.
September 22, 2006 at 4:35 pm
I love that dress. And the whole outfit is so casual… love it…
September 22, 2006 at 4:47 pm
she looks like Ana Wintour, in front row, (Derek Lam fashion show)greetings from Chile!

The great photographer finally hits London. Soooo looking forward to seeing your shots and off to a good start with the spotty dress. (I see that visiting Spain for Cibeles Fashion week is a no sho. Maybe choosing between individualist London and fashion logo/brand fixationists in Spain is a no brainer ?)
September 22, 2006 at 5:44 pm
Is it really warm enough in London to wear that dress? It’s too cold in NY to wear something like that!
September 22, 2006 at 6:52 pm
Big dots on a small girl don’t usually work, but this looks beautiful. Perhaps it is the mini mouse factor or the all round costume effect she gives it. I love the attitude. Like she has pinched it from someone else’s’ closet!

For those looking for an alternative to the ID lanyard: look at teacher supply stores. I bought an ID holder that looks just like a black and clear beaded necklace, except with the hook on the end.
September 22, 2006 at 7:46 pm
Yeah, welcome back! London needs you especially if you manage to find the only sunny quarter today when the rest of the city was drenched in storms.Dress is cute. Next does a great version this season believe it or not. Chcek it out on-line.Just no leggings under skirt shots please. We have our international reputation to uphold!Welcome Sartorialist!
September 22, 2006 at 7:50 pm
CUTE!!! I love this girl so much. Thank you.
September 23, 2006 at 9:13 am
nice look….and btw, there is no labour day in the UK ;)
September 23, 2006 at 12:42 pm
aaarghh…americans…there is no labour day in the UK…and londoners are quirky…all these silly rules you yankees follow…and the ridiculus obsession with painful shoes…here, we like a sense of humour with what we wear..
September 23, 2006 at 5:16 pm
cute cute! love the shoes with the dress. if she were to wear heels it would all be to obvious and straightforward. by the way, to anonymous, from 10:58 AM: spotted-dress girl is perfectly aligned so that the loudspeakers on the wrought-iron fence in the background only make her LOOK like she’s wearing a gehry-ish hat.

Now I will have to buy a red polka dot dress!!!!!!!!!!!!

Positively adorable, and the positioning of the legs just solidifies it.

I just came across this blog and found it very interesting indeed.Thanks for sharing.

Her ID badge actually looks great with her red dress.
