i have mixed feelings about this look, in part i like it because it light air and sexy, but the hem length is way to short, to the where its vulgar. if it were an inch or 2 longer it would be short enough to be sexy, young and flirty without being vulgar. it could also be that she is in motion so it seems to be riding up, making it shorter than it may actually be. which still seems to be a sign that it should be longer. anywho the sandals are superb. and the location of the shot is so beautiful. you should seriously consider opening a solo gallery show with an intimate collection of your most beautiful shots. take care.
i adore the fact that this looks more like a shirt than a shirtdress. and now looking closer, it seems that she has two of everything: two sets of metallics in the belt & sandals; two dark pieces in the sunglasses and bag; and two whites in the shirt and ipod buds. i doubt this sort of pairing was intentional, but the ease of the reflection is so refreshing and comfortable.
and though it’s not even august yet, i must say i’m looking forward to a sartorialist musthave/top10 fall looks piece…. how about it?
oh! i actually own this shirt dress, but it is a sheer white with an apple print, and the belt is a woven rope kind of thing. it is by diana von furstenberg and it is otherwise identical to this one. do i wear it without some type of pants or shorts? lord, no! but then i don’t look like this woman, either.
if i attempted anything like this i would mess it up in 3 seconds flat, adjusting this and that and making sure nothing was exposed…of course some boy leg sexy briefs would be the go here. gosh she looks great. so cool and composed. thankgod she ditched the socks!!
She’s magnificent – effectively using a minimal amount of clothing and ornament to accentuate her lovely face, figure, and flawless skin. I especially like that there’s not a scrap of jewelry to call attention away from her remarkable physicality.
I agree with lumalira that it’s refreshing to see this volume-over-slim look done without those ubiquitous cropped leggings. I imagine some women wear those monstrosities to disguise figure flaws. This young lady effectively demonstrates how to dress when one doesn’t have any figure flaws to disguise.
While I don’t agree with previous commenters that the hem length looks vulgar or unfinished, I do think it looks dangerous and a bit impractical in an urban context (which I’m sure is intentional). Were she snapped while strolling through Ipanema or Cannes there would be no question of appropriateness.
Sart I cannot tell you how much I love the way this woman looks! Easily one of the sexiest things (the picture) I have ever seen. Someone should tell her everyday that she is amazingly hot, in case she forgets…
She looks amazing – why not show off that amazing figure and skin with a minimalist white shirt-dress?! Fantastic! She’d probably look somehow not as good if that dress were longer – it suits exactly as it is!
You can wear cheerleader style bloomers, those amazing extra short shorts from american apparel (those high waisted ones), or even boy shorts swim bottoms might be nice. Even better, a dancer’s leotard in a flesh tone that matches yours- very alluring.
I guess we need to define “vulgar”. If that dress were worn with hooker shoes, bad make-up and a bad purse and was hanging out on some unsavoury street corner at 4 in the morning, then maybe vulgar would suffice. This look is young and fresh and speaks to the season that is: summer! Who’s to say she isn’t wearing an appropriate undergarment i.e. shorts?
Very few people on this planet could wear this and carry it off so perfectly. Not for the amateur (or squat figured!!), but she looks magnificent and the cropped hair and big glasses keep it all in balance.
