O.K. I hope your friends at Vogue see this and get inspiration for their next shape issue. They always feature women in who or either a size zero or size twelve. And that is supposed to represent the diversity of size of women in fashion…uhh yeah…so wrong. What about girls like me who are like a six? PS: These are so stunning and I’m so aMUSEd!
I am not a big fan of ankle strap sandals. They make legs look much shorter and, in this case,look to heavy on the girl in combination with this dress. I do, however, love the dress itself. Watercolor print is amazing: very light and colorful. Beautiful girl, beautiful dress, wrong shoes!!!
Love the “New Muse” great shoes, and body type, not wafer thin! I could look at pics of her all day! Her pose as well as facial expression looks like she’d be a great conversation as well. I said all that to say she’s my new “Dream Girl”!
Those two chics look effortlessly breezy and cute in their printed dresses. With such prints, an oversized hobo or clutch would be the perfect accessory. Love this summer-inspired yet glam enough look.
On the top photo: I love seeing a woman with a little meat on her legs. She looks healthy! Many of the women on your blog have stick-like legs that they dieted to have, and for me it spoils their otherwise excellent looks (if my legs were as thin as some, I certainly wouldn’t show them off in a miniskirt!).
I really don’t care for the Gladiator-esque, lace-up sandals. It makes her look a bit stumpy.The dress is so feminine and fresh though. It screams summer coquette!Really compliments her beautiful legs.
i have a body shape very similar to hers and legs of about the same shape and size. i want to show off in summer’s short hemlines, but i feel bad because i dont have the same twiggy legs of every other twenty something woman of new york. but these pictures have given me confidence!! im gonna go out and buy a new dress after work today.
Love the dresses, but I’m kind of disgusted with the way everyone feels like they have to comment on the women’s size. Isn’t it a bit condescending? And “real women”.. as if women with a naturally slender shape have something wrong with them. Can’t we just let it go and focus on the gorgeous clothes…
Lovely woman, showing lovely legs that aren’t skinny. And wearing the same shoes! A worthy muse, indeed! I don’t even love the dresses; I just love how comfortable she looks in her skin. And I love how many of the comments reflect the same appreciation.
LOVEly!! i guess we all want what we don’t have, right? i have the skinny long legs that some commenters think are the only type that can wear sandals such as these. but i think such sandals look silly on me – in fact i hate my chicken legs, which make my feet look even more boat-like! and i think this woman’s curvy, sexy legs are even further enhanced with these sandals. i am oozing jealousy. besides which, those sandals are just DAMN cool.
oh and i have to agree (i just posted the comment about my skinny legs) that i get irritated with all the “finally a real woman” comments too. i’m a real woman too. my legs are naturally skinny – i’m an apple shape. i sometimes WISH they would gain curves but there’s nothing i can do about it. i should just be happy as i am, right?
so we should be supportive/celebrative of ALL body types, skinny, curvy, athletic, and all combinations thereof. nothing looks better than a woman comfortable in her own skin, whatever shape her skin may have taken.
Can it be? Somebody with similar legs to my own displaying her own sense of style with such confidence and insouciance? I’ve been hiding my stocky calves in trousers for far too long now. The shots of these two women are colourful and inspiring, style-wise and otherwise.
Visiting this site, I often realize that what make these people look so good, or even beautiful, is not their fabulous outfit or pretty face but rather their attitude or atmosphere from the posture. mostly confidence?
It’s obvious why there are rapturous comments when we see a photo of someone who is ‘bigger’.
It is not a common occurence in the fashion world as it exists now to see women over a certain size displayed as desirable, chic, fashionable.
When our wonderful Sartorialist makes a post like this one, it is against the fashion norm, and it’s refreshing, inspiring and roof-raising. So give us a break if some of us rapturize over our older, shorter, or more voluptuous and otherwise different from the Vogue norm sisters.
Does anyone know where Emines dress is from?? Its amazing!! And i have to agree with almost everyone before me, so refreshing with a girl whos NOT stick thin…yippie! Brings hope to those of us who just had a baby too..
Ok, just thought I’d put my “two bits” in on the “real woman” issue.
One of my most revelatory observations (for me, at least), and something you get from people-watching especially, is how varied the human body can actually be. There are just so many shapes out there, so many different kinds of legs, arms, waists, etc.
It’s sad that people try to divide the female form into two very lame, and not all that descriptive, categories: “skinny” and “not skinny”. Yeah, but what about, I don’t know, “bowling-pinned shaped with thin legs, large chest, and scooped neck”, etc. etc.? You don’t have to take geometry to realize that all shapes are REAL.
Here IÂ´ve been thinking that you only recognize fab style if the person wearing the clothes and accesories is model-skinny. Finally you prooved me wrong, and with an amazingly beautiful women with just az amazing style!!!
