A white dress is absolutely perfect for summer. She looks so fresh and casual. I love the pop of color with the blue necklace. It makes this look so much more interesting.
true. love the gold bangles and the green flip flops. fun play on that goddess-like white summer dress.
August 17, 2009 at 3:46 pm
simple and clean..perfect for this hot weather ,,,
She looks pretty. If only she wore some other shoes, the picture would be perfect.
August 17, 2009 at 3:50 pm
Mhm, looks so sweet and clean.
Peace and love!

I absolutely hate it when people ruin a beautiful outfit with a pair of beach flip-flops. Otherwise this would've been beautiful!
November 7, 2013 at 10:01 pm
yes, it´s true, the sandals ruins everything
August 17, 2009 at 4:08 pm
I agree about the color. But that "see-through" is scary.
August 17, 2009 at 4:11 pm
Lovely! Very diaphanous!
August 17, 2009 at 4:16 pm
That see-through reminds me of that Diana Spencer pic. Love it.
August 17, 2009 at 4:20 pm
I hate flip flops! it ruins everything, desolé…
August 17, 2009 at 4:22 pm
Love the white, but she needs a slip!
August 17, 2009 at 4:26 pm
I always love a touch of turquoise with white.
August 17, 2009 at 4:32 pm
She is ready to spend a day at the beach, but for a day in the city i would have changed the flip flops for something else!
Anyway, love u!

I love it!Very fresh, so cool, she is like a much needed in New York breeze.:-))))
August 17, 2009 at 5:07 pm
Too bad about the cigarette.
For those who say "no flip-flops", what then?
November 7, 2013 at 10:04 pm
a pair of spadrilles, for instance, a pair of sandals, in heels, not so high,
August 17, 2009 at 5:13 pm
flip flops are NOT shoes .. they're beach wear.
August 17, 2009 at 5:21 pm
Tailor-made outfit for the Hamptons – but in the city it's even more exciting!
August 17, 2009 at 5:36 pm
Agreed, she needs a slip. Even in the photo I can see her undergarments and it is distracting from the beauty of the dress and the woman.
October 11, 2016 at 1:54 am
A slip would ruin everything.
August 17, 2009 at 5:46 pm
This woman reminds me of Frida Kahlo…
and maybe everyone should give her a break about the flip flops… maybe she just got a pedi!
love the bangles!!!!!!!!!!!
August 17, 2009 at 5:49 pm
So so true. Except I would lose the flip flops.
August 17, 2009 at 6:00 pm
OH my! Truly classic…no need to cover the transparency…less seen than at the beach…This look is perfect during a vacation at Cape Cod…Smiles.
August 17, 2009 at 6:30 pm
the dress is nice and i like the incongruity of the thongs with the floaty dressy dress..but adding the necklace to me is too much..looks very pedestrian..
i would have prefer nothing..then the focus would be the thongs..simple
August 17, 2009 at 6:43 pm
angelic dress, i love her necklace as well!
August 17, 2009 at 7:08 pm
She almost had it, flip flops ruined the look.
August 17, 2009 at 7:34 pm
not only flip-flops but brazilian Havaianas. cool as hell.
August 17, 2009 at 7:41 pm
well, i am the flip flop queen if there ever was one. i think that on her, with that dress, the sandals keep it casual, not prissy, relaxed rather than stuffy. i love wearing a pretty little dress, some eye-popping jewelery and my flip-flops. that's my style all the way, and i get compliments all the time. it needn't be foo-foo head to toe, you know?
August 17, 2009 at 8:19 pm
Lovely young woman. Like that her hair is away from her face. Nice bangles. But is that a cigarette in her right hand? Too bad. The shadows on the sidewalk are also very nice, and the contrast of the buildings on the left and the trees on the right.
August 17, 2009 at 8:24 pm
Very beautiful! But I would have opted for a nice pair of sandals :)
August 17, 2009 at 8:26 pm
August 17, 2009 at 8:28 pm
I think the ethereal white dress is loosely disguising her hidden desire for comfy shoes, rockin' sunnies and cigarettes! This picture reminds me to see beyond first impressions…

Such a dramatic contrast to the photo right below (a couple who dressed to kill in black).I go for BLACK in NYC even in summer!
August 17, 2009 at 8:57 pm
I don't think these dresses and flipflops are appropriate citywear, but having said that, she looks deliciously cool.

August 17, 2009 at 9:00 pm
All white in the summer with a hint of color is always right. I wish she wore something else instead of a flip flop though.Just posted an all white pic of a girl wearing a Rafe bag on my blog: http://rafeloves.rafe.com
August 17, 2009 at 9:02 pm
those look like hawaiian bracelets
August 17, 2009 at 9:05 pm
i think she looks beautiful and relaxed. isn't that important? i'm not sure why some viewers remark on the lack of a slip. there is nothing even vaguely slutty looking about her dress, comportment nor attitude.
i find her look refreshing and inspired on a god awful hot and sleep inducing humid day.
August 17, 2009 at 9:08 pm
Nothing says cool and pure better than white with a pop of turquoiseblue jewelry…Its always on my list and pretty much my summertime uniform
August 17, 2009 at 9:10 pm
the turquoise really does pop….though I have to agree I wish she was rocking some contrasting bright heels…..something unexpected like olive or plum. still, i love the sheer white maxi for the summer, with a big bold necklace.
August 17, 2009 at 9:27 pm
August 17, 2009 at 9:47 pm
I agree with the flip flops comment. A chic pair of gladiators would have been more fitting.
August 17, 2009 at 10:08 pm
August 17, 2009 at 11:00 pm
White plimsolls would have been an alternative
The Calvin Show
August 17, 2009 at 11:08 pm
Yup. The flip flops sort of throw the outfit off for me. Gladiators probably would have done the same since I'm SO over them. I'm not sure what shoe I would give this woman. Maybe because I don't like the dress either? :(
August 17, 2009 at 11:17 pm
I used to bash the flip flops. I would avoid them. Especially the ubiquitous brown leather flip flops seen everywhere with everything.
Then I realized how free my feet felt when I wore them. Light. My toes could breathe a bit.
I don't wear them with everything, but now and again they feel great.
This woman looks great. Cool, relaxed.
August 17, 2009 at 11:48 pm
Here in Sydney no one would blink at the 'flip flops'. I'd rather look at this relaxed woman than that tryhard pair in black below (although it is a marvellous double portrait).
August 17, 2009 at 11:53 pm
WHITE AND PERFECTLY DRESSED. SO COMFY..LIKE IT
August 17, 2009 at 11:58 pm
a slip. remember those? they are beautiful and functional.
August 18, 2009 at 12:39 am
you call them flipflops, we (in australia) call them thongs. And they can look good – but not when they look like tacky black rubber.
August 18, 2009 at 12:57 am
i love love love it.she looks like she's vacationing in santorini or southern italy… BELLA!
August 18, 2009 at 1:13 am
Love it, I'm not sure if the toes are working for me though.
August 18, 2009 at 1:15 am
I love the look, including the cig., which gets lost in the sea of white. The red in the sunglasses, the turquoise necklace and the gold bangles make it a very clean summer look.Now for the flip flops…I'm glad to see the feet were, at least, well manicured; otherwise it would have been an infraction (serious or otherwise).
August 18, 2009 at 1:42 am
I love the centre part in her hair and the dress, but…..scrolled down and wondered why would someone with such a lovely sense of style would ruin the whole effect with those mundane flip flops?
August 18, 2009 at 2:28 am
Love the turquoise and white … and the bracelets. Very summer fresh. When you are in the city … a SLIP please. (Unless you are in Santa Monica.)
August 18, 2009 at 4:13 am
the blue of that necklace really pops out in contrast. but it looks so good.
August 18, 2009 at 5:21 am
That blue necklace just pops out.
August 18, 2009 at 5:38 am
True. The colour makes the outfit.
I love the colour on her toe nails too.
August 18, 2009 at 5:54 am
With no transparency,no frip flops and no sigarette, it would be another narrow minded and boring girl who lives her life "by the book".
August 18, 2009 at 6:27 am
Ahh… nothing says cool better than a menthol cigarette hahahaha.
August 18, 2009 at 6:48 am
she reminds me of isabella rosselini
August 18, 2009 at 7:33 am
i concur with the thongs/flip flops (sorry, thats what we call them in aus! lol) comments.but that particular necklace is quite the distraction =D
August 18, 2009 at 9:47 am
Wow this picture is stunning. I love how clean and simple the dress looks on this lady.
August 18, 2009 at 10:20 am
it's a nice look! But nothing really special….flip-flops from old navy…
August 18, 2009 at 11:43 am
The flip flops make it look less stuffy and put together. There is something to be said about not being too uptight with fashion.
Though I love all of your shots and am inspired by them, there are all together too many pictures of super skinny (unhealthy)smokers!
August 18, 2009 at 12:38 pm
She is in New York City, give her a break on the flipflops! I have my trusty flipflops whenever I walk 20 blocks to and from work. But I change to my sandals once I get in the office.
Anyway, I have a similar outfit that I'll be wearing to a club. The turquoise and white contrast is beautiful!

August 18, 2009 at 1:16 pm
It's probably already been said, but I would have like a simple gladiator sandal with this. Other than that, it's really nice, and screams summer.

So angelous! And like vacation style. Love it!
August 18, 2009 at 3:59 pm
The dress practically dissolves into the sidewalk, thus procuring a stunning elongation effect. I recall ads Ralph Lauren ran for years centered around a similar, simplistic turquoise and white color story. Nothing screams summer louder than the fresh and aesthetically please combination.
August 18, 2009 at 4:18 pm
I just love the colour of that necklace, and it goes so nicely with the neckline and colour (or lack of) of the dress.Indeed nearly everything I've bought lately seems to be turquoise.
August 18, 2009 at 4:58 pm
she looks gorgeous and effortless, especially with the turquoise, but the flip-flops were a poor choice. simple and chic sandals would have done the outfit justice.
August 18, 2009 at 6:42 pm
Very nice…but not a big fan of flip flop in cities where there are no beaches!!!

We love her dress,she looks beautiful! so summer chic

August 18, 2009 at 8:37 pm
She can wear casual sandals, leather, that breathe – doesn't have to be black Old Navy flip flops. Way too boring. Sandals can be sexy AND walkable!I agree that she needs a slip. It's not a modesty issue – it just looks sloppy.
August 18, 2009 at 9:08 pm
chic and sleek. although a different pair of shoes wouldnt hurt…
August 18, 2009 at 9:18 pm
Love it! I got your book in the mail today! It is so amazing! I am loving every moment of looking through it.
August 18, 2009 at 9:33 pm
That's perfect for summer. I would wear it.
August 18, 2009 at 10:06 pm
this photo exemplifies the lesson that needs to be learned time & time again: less is more
August 18, 2009 at 10:29 pm
Love white in summer – white linen,cotton,silk,chiffon or whatever.
It's a very clean look.I wish she had worn something other than flip flops though.
August 19, 2009 at 10:19 am
Flip flops, sneakers, pj bottoms… All have their time and place, but too often we see them outside of their intended uses and purposes. I see too many beautifully dresses women whose outfit is ruined by a pair of flip flops, and this one is a good example: effortless, light, beautiful… and flip flops? They belong on a beach or in the public shower, she'd be better off barefoot.
August 19, 2009 at 11:24 am
Fresh pedicure… looking at this woman one should know the shoe change was just minutes away!
August 19, 2009 at 2:34 pm
love this dress!
August 19, 2009 at 4:19 pm
Finally – someone dressed for the heat of summer! No blazers, no all-black ensembles, no wool. She looks so cool and comfortable.
August 19, 2009 at 4:26 pm
Turquoise jewelry makes everything better
August 20, 2009 at 2:57 am
She looks very fresh and peaceful. It's a shame she is smoking.
August 20, 2009 at 11:21 am
I love this beautiful summer ensemble! The only thing that is bothering me (next to the cigarette) are the flipflops….but that's a personal thing between flipflops and me. I just don't like them very much.
August 20, 2009 at 11:36 am
I love the combination of turquoise and white, and the necklace is really pretty but I think her dress is way too transparent. I'd wear a dress like this to the beach, not in the city.

The blue pops the white so well. Nice choice for the last few weeks of summer.
September 11, 2009 at 9:29 pm
i like this kind of outfit.its simple,its compftarble,yet stylish and pretty but i think the flip flops totally ruined the outfit
September 29, 2009 at 11:32 am
wow so refreshing
November 21, 2009 at 5:07 pm
Lovely. She looks like a mirage in the heat.
October 24, 2016 at 11:07 am
Nice look until you get down to the cigarette and the flip flops.
