Dress + sneakers = Major love!!

Love her look, her curly hair is gorgeous.
August 7, 2013 at 9:28 am

The hair, the dotted dress, the sneakers, this girl has got everything right!

Thanks for this lovely picture!

Great image. Love this girl’s hair and easy, self-assured style. The combo of granny-frock with black trainers and black leather bag totally works.

What a great picture, love the cars in the background!

This lady’s hair and make up are great, and I like her expression, but the outfit is frumpy, especially the shoes. This just doesn’t work.
August 10, 2013 at 2:12 pm
Agreed. She looks like Andie mcDowell in all those early 90s movies. Frump frump frump.

I was thinking more Elaine Benes from Seinfeld. Beautiful girl in the photo, and do love her hair.
THE STEL STYLE

interesting mix of styles, I love the print in the dress
August 7, 2013 at 10:43 am
I love this picture with all the lights from the taxi’s :)

Her fabulous hair! So Andie MacDowell-ish back in the day.
August 7, 2013 at 11:15 am
I’m flummoxed. What a delightful ingenue! But why the sleepwear? I can understand wearing comfy shoes while traveling to and from work, but the entire bedroom ensemble! It’s too much comfort, not enough style. What I do like is how she pairs her lipstick with that baronial extravagance of hair. Pre -Raphaelite!
August 7, 2013 at 11:24 am
I love crazy hair
August 7, 2013 at 11:29 am
Beautituful light, beautiful girl, beautiful city.
August 7, 2013 at 11:31 am
love the ny city scape! all the taxis and this girl in a cute dress and sneakers! so fun!
August 7, 2013 at 11:34 am
Looks like she forgot to get out of her housecoat and into street clothes.
Awsome combination with sneakers
August 7, 2013 at 11:38 am
Great style in this photo!
August 7, 2013 at 11:43 am
Great outfit! Love her hair!
August 7, 2013 at 12:07 pm
This is a great example of how something can be kind of cool and insouciant on someone very young yet would not work on an older woman. Baggy, vintage-y, long dress with sneakers and red lipstick is cute on her yet would be frumpy, sad and depressing on someone older, for the most part. (Guess there are a few who could pull it off!) Nice that she is having fun with this look — and that great head of curls adds to the appeal.
August 7, 2013 at 9:30 pm
So true! My days of the housedress and sneakers are long gone and I miss being able to dress that way and look cute, rather then craaazy like I would look now. Being grown up is a bitch!
August 8, 2013 at 12:04 am
Oh, I agree! My first thought looking at this was: I used to wear stuff like that. These days I would have to put a belt around the dress and shorten it to my knees, make sure the sneakers are new and fresh and make frequent hair salon visits. Not much spontanaity left after all that and a very different look. I try to remind myself of the benefits of growing older but I must say the sartorial ones are few and far between. I’m glad this gorgeous young woman is enjoying getting dressed in the morning (or not) and inventing her own style. Thank you for the image.
August 11, 2013 at 7:34 am
Ah, my yes to all these comments. I never had the beauty of this woman but had years when I could allow the bloom of youth carry some of my more creative and even whimsical clothing choices. I think those of us of a certain age may also agree that the people who referred to early 90s Andie MacDowell as frumpy may be in for a shock when time renders their current style choices taboo for awhile. They too may cringe and laugh a bit when they look at their own photos from the current era. With luck they will live long enough to see today’s styles revived and reinterpreted by subsequent generations of sartorialists.
August 11, 2013 at 5:07 pm
I could not agree more! Negative comments on this one smacks of sour grapes.
August 7, 2013 at 12:35 pm
Pretty girl with wonderful hair. Love the low pockets but otherwise, thats about it.
August 7, 2013 at 12:37 pm
Love this photo in the middle of the city, and she is in her own world, so peaceful!
August 7, 2013 at 12:42 pm
Her hair is amazing! She’s the epitome of ‘effortless cool’.
August 7, 2013 at 12:44 pm
She’s lovely and beautiful!
August 7, 2013 at 1:21 pm
This picture takes me back to a new york summer evening.. i can smell the city air and feel the heat of the pavement. i love that it is just getting dark and the taxis have their lights on…. this shot is amazing. i miss nyc
August 7, 2013 at 1:32 pm
Real New Yorkers always look at oncoming traffic… especially at cabbies. Crosswalks don’t mean nothin’!!!
August 7, 2013 at 1:53 pm
I have just come back from New York and I just love the style!
August 7, 2013 at 2:47 pm
What a great shot. Although her look isn’t something to write home about it still captures the essence of what comes to one’s mind when thinking about NYC: style, cabbies, and crossing streets.

August 7, 2013 at 3:06 pm
Love the pocket, and the Nike.
August 7, 2013 at 3:44 pm
Gorgeous head of hair!
August 7, 2013 at 6:22 pm
The saddest thing happened to me! I was in New York for this summer. I must say I had lots of expectations about this summer, but the thing I was expecting the most was running into you, to be published in your blog but I didn’t. ): sad sad.
August 7, 2013 at 9:17 pm
Looks like ’90s grunge to me … just add a logger’s jacket and we’re done.
August 7, 2013 at 9:22 pm
I want to dive into her hair. The loose look. The swagger. The light. The Nikes. The bag. The possibilities. The lights. The taxis. The evening air. And again, yes, sorry, the hair…
August 7, 2013 at 9:53 pm
Scott, I would love to see “If You’re Thinking About… Sneakers.” I struggle to find ways to make a look around them, but pictures like these give me hope that it’s possible.
August 7, 2013 at 9:56 pm
I should specify. I know there was an edition with winter looks. Perhaps you can find some examples for summer looks as well?
August 7, 2013 at 10:35 pm
The hair! Wow!
August 8, 2013 at 12:19 am
I agree with the beauty of her hair the contrast with the red lipstick and the outfit, OK….I agree with the choice to combine Nike ( or other sporty shoes ) with a dress but God those are just hideous!
August 8, 2013 at 2:22 am
Fabulous hair, lovely shot with the taxi lights, not a fan of the heavy shoes or bag though.
August 8, 2013 at 5:45 am
So Elaine Benes
August 13, 2013 at 8:42 am
Oh darn, you beat me to the punch!!! Lol!
August 8, 2013 at 8:28 am
I really like the “depth” in this pic

I love everything about this picture. Especially the time of day, which I assume to be evening with the headlights and all. It somehow evokes a very familiar feeling.
Thanks for sharing!
August 8, 2013 at 10:12 pm
The sneakers look frumpy, but I will give her a pass on them. Comfort is far more important than looks. I would much rather see this woman walking to work in sneakers than riding in a vehicle and wearing regular shoes. Walking is supposedly the best exercise one can do, and Lord knows that Americans need to exercise more. The obesity rates in our country are terrible! This reminds me that I need to go walk the dog – the vet tells me that our boxer mix mutt has put on 10 lbs. in the last year. Time to grab the leash!
August 9, 2013 at 1:58 am
i love this look..dresses with sneakers always pulls at my heart..just like good bow ties do..
August 9, 2013 at 3:58 am
Yes! So Elaine. I’m thinking these are her walking shoes and she has some great shoes in her bag to slip into when she reaches her destination…
