I like her dress, I assume this one was taken a while ago, because it is freezing now!
October 19, 2009 at 5:09 pm
Is that the new Marc Jacobs dress?
Donned and Delivered
Ladylike and lovely.
Beautiful pattern on the dress! I like how the classic shape has had a more modern print juxtaposed on it. The addition of a classic bag and shoes just make sit even better!Inspiring, as always. Do you have any tips for people who are trying to get into street style photography themselves?

This is elegant and lovely and classy and timeless. You seem to always find women to admire.
October 19, 2009 at 5:21 pm
beautiful and elegant…a lady!
October 19, 2009 at 5:22 pm
Beautiful and strong.
October 19, 2009 at 5:29 pm

Beautiful, elegant style that you have captured here. Also, i love the way you handle light in your photography.
October 19, 2009 at 5:35 pm
what a chic look! i love it when women look like "women", in the classic old school Sophia Loren kind of way.
October 19, 2009 at 5:36 pm
So chic. I love the restraint of the shoes – no over-the-top platform, strapped-up ridiculousness for her. Classics, proportion and taste always rule the day. Does she have a bit of Anne Bancroft or Catherine Keener about her?
October 19, 2009 at 5:42 pm
WOW, such a classy and elegant cougar. Me likey, likey…
October 19, 2009 at 5:46 pm
she has great legs too
October 19, 2009 at 5:59 pm
Love the heels, dress and background lighting!!! :0
October 19, 2009 at 6:01 pm
Gorgeous, elegant, classic yet still fresh & fun…
October 19, 2009 at 6:32 pm
Looks like Ted Danson's wife Mary Steenburgen

Love the dress! Such an elegant lady!
October 19, 2009 at 6:57 pm
I love the composition of this shot – her placement between the buildings, the monotone blocks and perpendicular lines contrasting with the pattern on her dress and the relaxed curves of her timelessly elegant stance.
October 19, 2009 at 7:03 pm
Chic. Effortless perfection. The shape of the heels is brilliant.
October 19, 2009 at 7:16 pm
There is this laid-back charm about the lady.
October 19, 2009 at 7:23 pm
this is a shoes for a Lady during a day. No plataforms, it´s terrible.
October 19, 2009 at 7:24 pm
That's a really long arm!

October 19, 2009 at 8:23 pm
great shot. ageless style.the looks works because they're not kitten heels.
proportion wins, as the 5:36 comment above says.
October 19, 2009 at 8:24 pm
roger vivier shoes…♥
October 19, 2009 at 8:32 pm
her glowing tan totally takes this look from chic to gorgeous. i love the curve of her pumps! they look ever so dries van noten to me…
October 19, 2009 at 8:58 pm
This woman should give posture lessons to all the young slumping slouching quasi-beauties. Her posture helps her look poised, confident, and elegant.
October 19, 2009 at 9:20 pm
I like the pattern. Casual yet chic.
October 19, 2009 at 9:24 pm
very lovely, stylish yet composed and ladylike ;)
October 19, 2009 at 9:32 pm
marc jacobs collection, fall 09.great touch with the hermes.
October 19, 2009 at 9:36 pm
Her posture would make about anything look chic. You can't not look at her. Her gaze, her smile: all other things fall away – however wonderful they are tough. She's got IT. A very gentle charisma.
October 19, 2009 at 10:09 pm
awesome dress. this looks like a tory burch ad.

I like the hesitation in her smile. Like is is flattered your taking her picture and annoyed. She is feminine looking and yet sophisticated. Great job!
October 19, 2009 at 10:15 pm
She looks very classy, I love her dress
October 19, 2009 at 10:30 pm
is it a birkin bag?
October 19, 2009 at 10:34 pm
That bag definitely appears to be Hermes, let me know anyone if you agree or disagree, I like it nonetheless. Love the total ensemble, seems to just be something she threw on–effortlessly classic. I love it when it people make it look so easy like they don't try at all.

confidence but not arrogance – love it!
October 19, 2009 at 10:59 pm
LOVE the Marc Jacobs! Such a simple, classy look. Defenitely my style.
October 19, 2009 at 11:14 pm
Such timeless elegance! Sometimes i look at a shot like this and have to stop to wonder what is it that makes the person so attractive. It's not just the outfits. It has become a part of them.
October 19, 2009 at 11:16 pm
Beautiful portrait. She's stunning.
i love this. she's not making any statements but it is a statement.
October 19, 2009 at 11:21 pm
beautiful & classy for sure <3

Beautiful ensemble on a beautiful women dressed appropriately.
mom & son
i love this outfit.it's simple yet classy.
October 19, 2009 at 11:59 pm
I agree with Monika, that dress looks unique and classy.
i am currently looking for a shoe that is little over the top because my event i am attending next month is little over the top.i did lot of googling past couple of days and found some botiques with expensive shoe collections the one i am very interested is a very little known brand Monkees and i I fell in love with this shoe Frye DEBORAH STUDDED, i looked around on Google and find one in stock at http://www.buymonkees.com website but the price is $640.00 is this reasonable?
Any suggestion guys???Thanks
October 20, 2009 at 12:29 am
I think the photo is lovely (location, lighting etc ), but the outfit is just so blah…the dress is very average, a bit of a bargain basement print if you ask me….and the shoes? so boring.

Effortless elegance. Love her hair!

I love her dress. She's amazing.
October 20, 2009 at 4:10 am
I just can wait for Mr. Postman to bring me the book I ve just order. I LOVE your pics. Très beau!
October 20, 2009 at 4:25 am
Very classy… the bag is a nice touch!
October 20, 2009 at 6:01 am
She looks great! I wish I could look that good at her age. (I'd wear shoes that were more 'of the moment', I think.)
Given that, she's got great proportions. The lottery of genetics have given long limbs. Her arms look fabulous.
October 20, 2009 at 6:14 am
Roger Vivier shoes are so pretty they can be identified easily. classic and elegant!
October 20, 2009 at 6:30 am
less is more!
October 20, 2009 at 7:18 am
Women of a certain age benefit from such timeless, classic elegance, yet she makes it look original. That is style.
October 20, 2009 at 7:39 am
Yes, now that is a LADY. How refreshing. No gimmicks, no clodhopper "fashionable" shoes. Lovely!
October 20, 2009 at 7:49 am
So simple – so amazing. A classy lady, hope i could like half this great when i turn thirthy!
October 20, 2009 at 8:26 am
The angles are so subtle….
October 20, 2009 at 8:29 am
October 20, 2009 at 8:40 am
i love the dress!
October 20, 2009 at 8:42 am
i agree with what has been said before…she looks classic and lovely w/out all the trends. love the bag!
October 20, 2009 at 9:19 am
Roger Vivier shoes and a Birkin …my fav combo too !

so pretty – and not overdone. love it!
Catherine like Deneuve
October 20, 2009 at 10:12 am
Simple dress that looks comfortable without being slouchy. Natural hair, natural makeup. No bling whatsoever, but she would make heads turn anywhere. The perfect posture is the best accessory of all.
Sart, please give us some cold-weather pics. I love to experiment based on inspiration from here, but this shot just won't do it, even in the south of France, where I am wearing two sweaters and sitting by a space heater.
ADORE her simple, elegant sophistication. She has STYLE!

On the money!
October 20, 2009 at 1:11 pm
What a sly grin. It makes me wonder what she's thinking.
October 20, 2009 at 2:23 pm
I am secretly so very tired of all these photos fashionistas with 6 inch heels during the day, in the street. Power to them if they can do it all day, every day, but it´s become both obvious and a bit ridiculous. Well, their choice. But these heels I find really charming, the shape is much more interesting than height!
October 20, 2009 at 2:42 pm
we adore to wear women like her… much more sensual than any teenager;-)so chula…
October 20, 2009 at 3:13 pm
I totally adore your blog and recommend it to friends whenever possible. Today I linked to your blog at mine as you are one of my favorite blogs. http://chocolatesushi.blogg.no
October 20, 2009 at 3:46 pm
I believe the dress is from Ann Taylor… Might be mistaken… My ex-wife has it, I believe.
October 20, 2009 at 3:57 pm
That's how a woman of her age should be dressed. Not dowdy. Not showing too much skin. Just elegant and understated. Nicely tanned I might add.
October 20, 2009 at 5:02 pm
fantastic dress, lovely bag.
October 20, 2009 at 5:24 pm
love her dries!
October 20, 2009 at 10:08 pm
Superb, feminine and sexy, you only see this in Italy!
October 21, 2009 at 11:58 am
October 21, 2009 at 12:48 pm
Yeah, maybe it is a Birkin. so what? Walk Madison Avenue and you'll see they're a dime a dozen. Hermes flooded the market with them this past year. Go into any Hermes store, there are at least 30Birkins in the back room. Have you read the recent financial postings of Hermes? Scarves down 35%. Fragrance down 27%. Watches down 30%. Handbags UP 23%. Why do you think that is? Because Hermes suddenly made the Birkin available to any and all. Duh!
October 21, 2009 at 11:44 pm
The contrast between the light, washed out backround and the womans saturated color is beautiful. Love, love, love.
October 23, 2009 at 3:30 pm
i like her style!
October 23, 2009 at 10:20 pm
She's a great-looking woman in her 50s. More, please. A bit tired of all the fab 20-somethings. As if that's a big deal. Show us more women who stay fit and fabulous. And don't feel the need to wear platforms, minis, and lycra to prove it. Perhaps the outfit doesn't look as fabulous at other angles, but it's great here. Love the shoes. Chic yet comfortable. The hair… nice, but again, the angle is fabulous.
October 24, 2009 at 4:12 pm
wow! what a lady, and what a smile.
October 24, 2009 at 6:53 pm
You gotta love a woman in pumps:)
October 27, 2009 at 5:22 pm
same beautiful lady in your book? yes?
October 28, 2009 at 1:01 am
love the Hermes bag!
October 28, 2009 at 3:24 am
pretty!is it just me though, or does her arm look freakishly long?
October 29, 2009 at 8:45 am

August 4, 2013 at 4:57 pm
I just can´t get enought of looking at this gorgeous look of this woman, sooo elegant, so feminine, so full of sense of style and grace…
It´s a wonderful photo , I love it most, more and more each time I look at it, and it just had to be taken in Milan, the city of these great women
the bag…the shoes…the simple bracelet in her pulse, the hair, just natural, nothing is fake or unatural about her
And, look at this dress..oh My God…
August 24, 2013 at 9:44 am
I love to use
it´so practical, so easy going with everything,
I have a pair of those Belle Vivier shoes
and I wish I could know where to buy the dress
but since the photo is not a new one, ….
