Very Chic, and loving the stoop shot. Quintessential NY moment!
November 11, 2009 at 1:31 pm
She's excellent. One of the best dressed, and best photos, I've seen on your blog! The townhouse architecture helps :)
I also love her oxfords. I used to wear blue black oxfords like those and was probably the middle school weirdo; wonderful how enduring fashions return to trump trend.
November 11, 2009 at 1:32 pm
The shoes do it!
November 11, 2009 at 1:35 pm
Lovely look. I hope those shoes are making a comeback.
November 11, 2009 at 1:36 pm
Two words: Shoe Envy
Like the whole look. But the shoes?…Are boots a better alternative or has that already been done? I love that the shoes are nicely worn and that they aren't black. So in the end, I love the whole look.
November 11, 2009 at 1:38 pm
Love it! Great to see she used a light brown belt instead of a black. It makes the outfit! Awesome shoes!
November 11, 2009 at 1:39 pm
She looks fantastic! I like everything she is wearing, especiall the shoes – Love that ox-blood red colour. Nice photo
November 11, 2009 at 1:40 pm
I thought this was a pretty average outfit until I saw the unusual shoes. Their shininess and colour make them stand out nicely
November 11, 2009 at 1:41 pm
All lady on top with men's oxfords – love it! The orange pop of color in the belt is a nice contrast.
November 11, 2009 at 1:42 pm
the belt makes this outfit perfect.
November 11, 2009 at 1:53 pm
Love the proportions and pop of pattern on this!
see, this is REALLY inspiring to me because i have all the items in my wardrobe, at least sort of. so happy to have bought myself a pair of brogues!!great usable picture!!!
November 11, 2009 at 1:56 pm

Very nice dress. I like the kind she look. A little bit funny but also very serious. Her face is beautiful and she look like she would thinking about somethin. You are so talentfull in photographing you just catch those beautiful moments.

I love that building – especially that door. And I really like her skirt and shoes.

Wow gorgeous! Great shoes
November 11, 2009 at 2:06 pm
Rather nice oxblood shoes
Love it! This has been my "uniform" for Fall…nothing better than a skirt with pockets!
November 11, 2009 at 2:08 pm
always like a women wearing a pair of solid shoes.
November 11, 2009 at 2:09 pm
So love the skirt!
November 11, 2009 at 2:14 pm
Nice photo! Very French! Very Chic!
November 11, 2009 at 2:16 pm
STUNNING! She's the kind of girl I'd love to be friends with.
November 11, 2009 at 2:18 pm
Perfect urban look!!
November 11, 2009 at 2:22 pm
Really like the shoes.
November 11, 2009 at 2:29 pm

November 11, 2009 at 2:31 pm
i loooove this look and wish my legs were long enough to pull it off.
November 11, 2009 at 2:42 pm
Great look. The striped shirt, scarf and brogues . . . all of it just works.

She's gorgeous. I really like the slim belt with full skirt. And I love the shoes!
November 11, 2009 at 2:47 pm
I thought this was very French too! Absolutely stunning. And the shoes: that's an inspired choice, completely knocks out the ball park.
November 11, 2009 at 2:57 pm
A mixed and atched perfection.Love the sshoes… recently got ones for myself in grey.
And the steps… I miss NY
November 11, 2009 at 3:00 pm
I've been wearing a pair of Jil Sander wingtips from years ago and everyone is stopping me lately. Have had them 10 years! Also old Robert Clergerie oxfords. Nothing better with tights. You can WALK and look great, too.
November 11, 2009 at 3:08 pm
LET ME GUESS, THE DRESS SHE IS WEARING IS H&M?
Love the pop the belt gives!
November 11, 2009 at 3:13 pm
Just fabulous !
That's it: I want to be her.

November 11, 2009 at 3:24 pm
The crazy thing is that i just saw her walk by me this morning, in this great outfit. I noticed the jacket, and of course, the brogues.
November 11, 2009 at 3:26 pm
You have a great way of capturing so much in a picture…the architecture and mood…
November 11, 2009 at 3:27 pm
Altought its the first time I leave a comment, I follow your blog many time ago. I love this blog, for me its the best. I know you´ll be in madrid next week and I excited but i dont know if i can attend because my job, but i try it. I fell so honored if you visit my blog http://sloannstreet.blogspot.com/2009/11/sartorialist-en-madrid.html
November 11, 2009 at 3:43 pm
yawn. nothing about this is inventive or interesting. what's working at american apparel like?
November 11, 2009 at 3:46 pm
i LOVE her look! x.
November 11, 2009 at 4:02 pm
this is so NY… i have a poster of this kind of building front steps in my living room ! i love the pic !!!
November 11, 2009 at 4:06 pm
very chic. perfect outfit for her!
November 11, 2009 at 4:09 pm
I love this – she's splendid. The red lips, the orange belt and the aubergine Oxfords against a backdrop of neutrals result in a very smart, inspired (inspiring) and fun look.
I adore these kind of shoes. so classic and chic.
November 11, 2009 at 4:10 pm
i have to agree with the statement that this is one of the best dressed shots on this blog. flawless in every way.
November 11, 2009 at 4:26 pm
i adore this~!
November 11, 2009 at 4:42 pm
This is so great, I love everything about it. I like the volume of the cape and skirt, and the pockets make it just that much cooler. I like the stripes to break up all of the solid color, and the pop of color with the red belt is just perfect. I even like that flat shoes!
November 11, 2009 at 4:45 pm
oh gosh, i love this look! i don't know what else to say… :)
November 11, 2009 at 4:56 pm
Perfection…every piece works off of each other!!!
November 11, 2009 at 4:57 pm
love the play on black and brown—not sure why people are so afraid to do this! it looks very sophisticated.
November 11, 2009 at 5:19 pm
Great classics, very well put together! It's a "Carrie Bradshaw"-scenery. I LIKE!
November 11, 2009 at 5:28 pm
ooohh, I want that shoes too but here in Milan (italy) its quite hard to find them. any suggestion? :)
November 11, 2009 at 5:40 pm
Adorable. Without any ostentation. Really enjoying this look.
November 11, 2009 at 5:50 pm
Is this an ex model named Emma something?
November 11, 2009 at 5:52 pm
LOVE the shoes!! PLEASE who makes them??
November 11, 2009 at 5:56 pm
This is one of my favorite picture! I love everything: the high skirt, the stripes, the shoes and the belt! The belt definitely makes this outfit. The brown color pops out and lightens the whole thing.And the shoes.. I have the same in black. Love them!
November 11, 2009 at 6:04 pm
November 11, 2009 at 6:19 pm
J'adore!!! the shoes are perfect!!
November 11, 2009 at 6:23 pm
The shoes is what I like the most, it looks very british.

November 11, 2009 at 6:48 pm
I love that she paired that coat with oxfords. Beautiful.
November 11, 2009 at 6:56 pm
There is something very George Sand about this woman. Yes, she looks both chic and pendantic.
November 11, 2009 at 6:58 pm
love the peek-a-boo brown belt!
November 11, 2009 at 7:22 pm
Wow, this one brought back a wave of nostalgia for my days in New York…hanging out on the stoop was one of my favorite things to do in that city.
November 11, 2009 at 7:25 pm
i think i'm going to wear my brown wingtips with some tights and a skirt very soon.
November 11, 2009 at 7:32 pm
Stunning. I adore the shoes — I have been looking everywhere for such nice oxfords, and she has them — thief! And I love the skirt as well.
November 11, 2009 at 8:37 pm
Lovely outfit. I really like the skirt and the touch of brown with the belt.
November 11, 2009 at 10:09 pm
something i have always wondered.. how do people tie their scarf/shawl like that?? i tried to do it but couldn't. =(
November 11, 2009 at 11:06 pm
There is something classic about the railing along the steps of a NYC brownstone. She looks relaxed and those shoes are simple but i have always loved a deep burgundy leather.
November 11, 2009 at 11:13 pm
oh. it's perfect. love those shoes, brown + black. so balanced.
I'm looking for just right oxfords as well — I know n.d.c does a pair, but I can't seem to find any in brown this year.
November 12, 2009 at 1:55 am
Absolut perfection Thanks Scott !!!
November 12, 2009 at 4:01 am
she's rocking the shoes
November 12, 2009 at 5:54 am
But the doorway! If I were her, I could stand there for the rest of my life. :)
November 12, 2009 at 9:53 am
Oxford shoes are hot right now, I got a pair recently!
November 12, 2009 at 10:35 am
Her shoes are fantastic!
November 12, 2009 at 12:18 pm
So simple, so smart. God, I love New York.
November 12, 2009 at 12:45 pm
this is great. anyone who says (and it's been said) that a woman can't be sexy or chic in flat shoes is just plain wrong.

November 12, 2009 at 1:32 pm
I love this. I had an outfit just like that in 1982. And I will whip up something similar from my closet and wear it tomorrow when I go to Tafelmusik
November 12, 2009 at 1:39 pm
Guud bye high clumpy heels, I won´t miss you!
November 12, 2009 at 3:32 pm
Wow. She's the ultimate preppy. She's made me need to re-read Franny & Zooey.
November 12, 2009 at 3:43 pm
this is great. for so many reasons. #1: belt color#2: pockets in the skirt!#3: i think she is an expert scarf-draper. i can never get that look.#4: yay for laced flats.
but most of all… the stripey shirt. it's a great contrast to all of the solid colors, without neutralizing the pop of the colored belt.

omg! totally inspired. I love this pic. :) Thanks so much for always posting such beautiful style for us to admire.
November 12, 2009 at 8:53 pm
Love that she could have gone another route but instead chose the understated oxfords. makes the look more interesting.
November 13, 2009 at 4:52 am
Beautiful shoes! I am buying myself some brogues now… that's made up my mind for me…
November 13, 2009 at 4:57 am
love that so much. very simply, but very cute too.
November 13, 2009 at 7:56 am
That steps/building look like the one next to the builing where Carrie's appartment was filmed during Sex and the City!

I really like this shot. From her oxford shoes, the crossing of her legs, the belt, and striped shirt. A french look on Brooklyn brownstone steps—fantastic.
November 13, 2009 at 2:58 pm
Ooo la la, she is so french! Love it!
November 13, 2009 at 10:02 pm
Chic, pretty and classic.
November 13, 2009 at 10:47 pm
I love her dark ensemble and the brown brogues!
November 14, 2009 at 3:55 am
That belt, those oxfords, those stripes… a lovely french moment in NYC.
November 14, 2009 at 6:22 am
Surprising oxblood and tan coordinate with the brownstone. The striped blouse lends an air of vulnerability absent from black ensembles worn by blonde women. Well done to both of you.
November 14, 2009 at 12:51 pm
I bought a similar dress for my daughter. Did not think of the dark stockings. Got to find one!
November 15, 2009 at 11:18 am
i love this entire outfit. especially the skirt with the belt, and those amazing shoes!
November 17, 2009 at 5:58 am
There is something about the outfit-simple clothes but looking very stylish
November 17, 2009 at 11:31 am
The shoes are brilliant.

November 22, 2009 at 6:22 am
This is great. Some of the stuff I see here is cute but I would not be able to pull it off, but this I feel is very chic AND wearable.
November 26, 2009 at 7:21 pm
So great, like this menish shoes. Waited so long, where had you been…
November 29, 2009 at 6:41 am
I love the shoes. And the striped tee. And the jacket. To be honest, I love everything about this photo.
December 1, 2009 at 6:03 am
Fantastic and achievable style. Shop your wardrobe and you can pull something like this together without having to be a designer junkie. I love her.
December 2, 2009 at 8:45 am
oh, that look is so french-chic. i love how she slung the jacket over her shoulder and added the red belt as an accent to her overall clothing.
December 23, 2009 at 2:23 pm
a casual romantic look wich i adore
December 29, 2009 at 4:36 pm
