    Oh, this is a cool photo. Looks so accidental, not staged. With all these fashionable detailes – still, naturally beautiful. I mean, the clothes look like clothes, something you actually wear. Even the shoes.

    GREAT SHOT, but I haven't seen a bad one from you. I'm loving the heels and the colors of winter/fall with the splash of color with the red bag.

    why is it that those of us who have actually worn uniforms don't see the charm? same with work clothes, all the dandy's wearing work boots to desk jobs. maybe the carpenters will start wearing gucci loafers to job sites. i remember the seventies in san francisco, the guys dressed like janitors were hair stylists and the guys with frilly shirts were football players. who'd a thunk it?

    The shoes and the bag are awesome. Especially those shoes. Love those shoes.

    On another related note, I remember reading in your book that you get inspired by pieces of a look and only so often, the whole look. Some people who comment on your blog get a bit up in arms about why you've posted something -claiming that it lacks innovation, etc. But these people that you shoot. . . aren't they just going about their day (and in this case, seeking some refuge from the rain) without knowing that they are dressing to inspire anyone but themselves? Big deal if the whole outfit isn't innovative. If the critique is being levelled at you for choosing this person to photograph, I must say that the person(s) doing the criticizing is(are) missing the point. Look at the parts of the outfit for inspiration. If you love the whole look – great. But usually, many of the parts that go into the look are awesome in and of themselves.

    Great purse. Beautiful girl.

    But the shoes make the picture look contrived. No one wears what looks like suede stilettos on the streets of Soho. In the rain.

    Maybe she just got out of a taxi and is going into a restaurant. Otherwise it's a fantasy.

    I must know who makes the shoes, or something similiar. I like how she's wearing open toed shoes with a bulky military esque coat. If I had those heels, I wouldn't take them off, either. She looks real. I feel I would be comfortable meeting her.

    Aleutie has got it. This appears to be an unposed shot of someone who is not a model coping with NYC weather. If this is a posed model, this really is a great shot with a model emoting concern about something unseen. Very, very NYC.

    This photo is a true example of why I love where fashion is going now a days…I live for the creative owning how you choose to look instead of your not in if you don't look a certain way! How boring would this world be if we all looked a like…I may not be the right judge but I choose to take individual items and run with them. She is dressed very cohesive to me.

    I like all the pieces, just not together. The parka is too casual–the bag does nothing for the subtle coloration of the shoes and dress. & she's already too old to wear her legs bare in the winter. BUT your shot is fabulous

    Is it just me, or do shoes like that annoy any other women? Honestly, I know they have a certain appeal, but they are incapacitating. My feet hurt just looking at them. I love fashion, but not at the expense of being able to walk lively if need be.

    She is beautiful. And would not be less so with a slightly different shoe choice.

    Why do women who can't wear heels criticize women who do? These shoes are gorgeous and if they are comfortable for her, more power to her. I've had women tell me I'm lying when I say my high heels are comfortable… could it just be that our feet our different?
