Oh god, it took me a second, but I finally realized that in that last picture, it's the feet of two different people (Sart's and the young woman's), each wearing a different shoe. At first I thought it was a new fashion statement: Not just a different shoe on each foot, but the WRONG shoe on each foot, a la Lars von Trier's "Antichrist." Phew! OK, I can enjoy the pictures now!
Now it seems your back to what you do best!! We can at last really see street fashion at its very best! Its got nothing to do with money, class, expensive wardrobes or being some kind of famous……But all to do with imagination and creativity and individuality….. I hope you've recovered enough from the debacle and 'hero worship' and less than mediocre shoots and book signing in Madrid, Spain?! The whole question and answer session must have been torture at best? I know I know there was not at all much by way of creativity nor 'sartorial egde. And if that was not bad enough, I am sure the endless sea of litter, filth and abundant graffiti must have gotten in the way of any potentially great shot!!
LOL!!! You made me laugh with your little comment at the bottom! That's funny. I do in fact love her leather bomber jacket. Aren't those shoes super uncomfortable being worn inside out? I do like the shoes as well. Tres tres chic! check out my trendy blog! http://thetrendydwarf.blogspot.com/
I am a bit surprised that you would wear light brown shoes with black dress pants, especially when traveling (can only pack 1 pair of shoes to leave room for new acquisitions?) but the leather and stitching of the shoes are superb! I would not try the black+brown but I agree that it works with the jacket and I love the belt- my favorite piece!!!
i love almost everything about her outfit. so many people still believe in the clash of brown and black but her outfit demonstrates that it can be beautiful and vibrant.
the jacket is really just stunning and brought even more so to the forefront by the shirt and that fantastic NECKLACE. the belt is striking and the shoes remind me of my style as a teenager and early adult. to say the least, i love her style.
OH MY GOODNESS! That jacket is gorgeous, the styling (especially that matching belt) is fabulous, love her pose in the first photo, and I am seriously awestruck by those shoes. I've been looking everywhere for shoes just like that! I need them. NEED, people!
I love this woman – she has an Audrey Hepburn thing going on via the Sartorialist obviously :) Love the combination of leather and gold with the pixie look. Such a joy to be witness to so much care for beauty.
I love love love this look. Perfect example of knowing what works on you. Something about the tomboyishness of it all makes it very sexy. I'm confused by all the commentors saying "him" when its clearly a girl…but anyhow, I think this is such a great showing of someone's personal style. While loving this outfit, I know the entire look wouldn't work on me, so if I were to emulate, I would pick up on the feel and chose items that more suit my shape and personal style. That's what street fashion is all about – the sum being greater than its parts!
i'm not sure why it's such a surprise to see scott sockless. i recall seeing him mention on numerous occasions that he feels it's the season that should dictate when to go sockless. fall is perfect because you don't have to worry about your feet over heating.
then again maybe i just dreamt that hoping that other people thought it made sense too. hmmmm…
Super slick. The gold on the wrist is kinda harsh on the eye. It lacks the subtlety of the watch under the left cuff and the softer tones of the necklace. At some point I'll probably come to like it. Thank you for beautiful stuff!
I really wonder that what is this sock mania people are pushing. Honestly – it's often more comfortable to go without socks, especially if you have proper shoes (like The Sart and that gorgeous woman have).
Sure, nice socks (especially with the trousers that show the shoe and the socks well) are a good thing, but ankles are very often just so, so much more elegant.
Of course, if one wears a classic Brooks Brothers' oversized, formless sack suit, it's already too late to do anything classy – then the shoe colored socks are the way to go.
Go, Sart! Those shoes are just great. :) And that woman…wow. Incredible. I have a heavy crush on her now.
don't you think the brown shoe with no socks is getting a little tired and 'hipster' looking? I think something a little more original might be in order. Or is it that you just like to photograph people who dress the same style?
Everytime i see her in this blog…im like wow….i live in brazil… and when it comes to fashion most people are ignorant yes… im glad she lives far away..so she can pull this off…women here are afraid to look like this… so ppl would call em butches…and worst….to me.. this is amazing…. im a man… i im dying for the jacket… the tan color…. the sewing…the shimmer…though she looks kinda manly… i see something soft in her eyes… something sweet…i have no doubt she is a great and strong woman…i want the jacket now!!! its not fair… lol
