    The coat and shoes are amazing

    The lighting adds just the right bit of mystery, fantasy, and elegance to complement her very weekend kind of look!

    Lover her coolness, the shoes and especially the thrown over coat. Unfortunately it is most of the time too cold to do this and when it is warm you dont wear a coat …

    Everything is perfect! The “inside-out” denims are way beyond cool. The coat…shoes…scarf…work together in the best of ways.

      Yes! The inside out denim – great solution when you don’t realize till the last moment that the dark chocolate bar you enjoyed yesterday left a smudge on your favorite jeans.

    Beautiful composition with eclectic contrasts: Dressy camel coat and creamy Mary Janes; offset with blue sky and casual blue denims. A confident stylish woman.

    Wonderful lighting! Love the lights in the background.
    Also, she wears this very well.

    December 13, 2012 at 9:43 am

    I like the contrast of textures and colors here…the blue jean jacket with equally worn jeans. The camel coat. The two-tone T-strap Mary Janes. What a classy date outfit. I’d wear this in an aorta beat!

    love the denim on denim look. back to street style! less of other pictures!

      I agree, street styles are so much more interesting and unique. I do like the way it appears that she has just thrown all this together.

    beautiful denim outfit combined with this beautiful coat!!!

  24. Gentlemeter

    December 13, 2012 at 10:05 am

    Is that the Martin Margiela X H&M coat from the men’s collection? That looks very nice with denim…

    I want that look!

    Her feet HAVE to be freezing! I don’t get all of the pics with people living in cold climates and have no socks on. There is no way anyone can wear shoes like that in Toronto right now!

    • T

      December 14, 2012 at 9:42 am

      Couldn`t agree more, P. I caught myself thinking: “Is it really that warm in New York right now?” I can`t imagine her being able to feel her toes. Looks good, but can it really be comfortable?

      • Rosalie

        December 16, 2012 at 6:59 am

        Right. Because fashion is all about being comfortable. If expressing your inner state of mind (or making a statement) trough your clothes and the way you dress (I think) others don’t have the right to judge you.

    if you take away the shoes, she has that Ralph Lauren look about her

      Funny, because she’s wearing Margiela with H&M….

    Really loving the jean-on-jean trend, especially when accessorized with classic, lady-like elements like those shoes and coat.

    Plus the pose and attitude captured here are just awesome!

  51. Lauren@Styleseer

    December 13, 2012 at 11:09 am

    Wow! This is head-to-toe denim really well done. Perfectly dressed up with the camel coat and spectator mary-janes. I love the ambiance of the twilight.

    Yes, the pieces are men’s from the Margiela/ H&M collaboration. Hopefully she waited for the sale. Great outfit!

    December 13, 2012 at 11:20 am

    Huh. Who would’ve thought that matchy-matchy denim could look so cool and chic? Not me. But it totally does. And I think it’s the perfectly tailored classic camel coat thrown effortlessly over the top that elevates the whole look. Surprisingly beautiful styling.

  57. T.

    December 13, 2012 at 11:24 am

    Great photo! She looks as if she was a very stylish, but also a nice, friendly person! love the Christmas trees in the background!

    December 13, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    Her choice of clothes shouldn’t “work” at all — kinda slapdash and safe and all-over-the-place in detail — but how stylish and “now” she looks! Beautiful, spot-on photograph too, which isn’t always the case here. Finally, the shot captures NYC’s holiday spirit … the curbside Xmas trees, the lighting at night, the improv, casual elegance of the city’s denizens. Really quickened my day to see this post!

  69. Devon

    December 13, 2012 at 12:24 pm

    For the first time…in a long time…I can’t find a single element that I dislike.
    The layering works really well, the pieces on their own are interesting and well chosen – and even that hint of movement as she touches her hair adds a great detail to the photo.

    Well done!

    Only after looking twice I noticed that she is wearing her jeans inside-out. How cool is that! Love every detail of this casual-elegant look. Plus the light gives this shot a special note.

    Looks great! Not sure about the fit of the jeans a bit, but thats not important. Everything works together perfectly, and her pose is endearing. Love those shoes!

  76. Adrianna

    December 13, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    Absolutely LOOOOVE the shoes. And a good photo – the place seems distant and mistery like.

    Great layering of denim blue and camel, beautiful versatile shoes, but
    what an incredible shot of the light “entre chien et loup”.

  80. Helen

    December 13, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    Love the outfit – and yes, agree with earlier comment that her outfit has that Ralph Lauren relaxed western chic to it, in spite of the Margiela coat!

    But, what I really want to comment on is the lighting – what a fantastic night (?) shot! I can’t imagine you used a flash. Are you using a new lens Scott (and tripod?) Really love the vivid colours, and overall composition!

    you had me until we got to the feet. WTF with grown women minimizing themselves by standing, toes pointed inward as if they are five or six year old children. be beautiful in all of your weight, hair, wrinkles, adult shoes and posture. c’mon now.

    • Blondeflickareddeltrask

      December 13, 2012 at 2:59 pm

      Could not agree more. Entire clothing websites now with models standing pigeon toed like coy children. Do not understand. It’s not sexy, it’s like sucking your thumb.

    • Blondeflicka

      December 13, 2012 at 3:02 pm

      Could not agree more on the pose. She looks beautiful, but the hordes of adult models on clothing websites and photo spreads standing coyly pigeon toed is not attractive. It’s akin to sucking your thumb.

    Horrible fitting old denim. Horrible. Stop trying to sell us on light wash denim – its not working! Wearing the opposite of what’s in doesn’t make you stylish, it makes you look like your trying to wear the opposite of whats in. Enuf!

    Who’s jeans are those?
    Looks like they have been made to look inside-out but I could be wrong???
    Looks like the denim jacket has the same effect.
    Very cute with a glimpse of the ‘right’ side of denim peeping on the turn up.
    Oh to be in NYC for Christmas!
    Good to be in NZ though…:)

    The French should have a term meaning “beautiful onion” which also relates to the ecstasy of peeling it back, layer by layer, discovering wonders that can overcome the senses. Now excuse me, I have to go turn down the thermostat.
