Love everything! the dress- very Yves St. Laurent in the ’70′s! The legs are fab! the length of the dress is perfect with the tights. The soft vuitton bag is yummy and shoes divine! A super duper fall look!
I love it all but the bag. It’s a love-hate thing with LV. In some ways it’s still a great leather-goods brand, but then you see it everywhere (and knocked off everywhere else) that it’s hard to not notice it.
Is it just me?
Everything else is really great. She looks delightful.
every day it amazes me how these people who post comments here always LOVE everything! How can you LOVE a shoe? How can yo love all kinds of material objects and then tell your husbond or child that you love them, too? Shouldn’t you invent a new word because all this loving is confusing
what an incredible shot! looks like an editorial. The dress, the tights, the attitude, her Vuitton Speedy bag which is probably a hand me down from her Mom. Love, love, love the shoes. It’s all about the bootie and this one is sexy and high at the same time. I guess Fall has officially arrived.
This young lady confirm my theory, if you wear the right accessories -shoes,bag, scarf etc- even an H&M dress can make you look like a million, smart young lady! I agree with Anon 501 I think she is a Drew Barrymore clone. Perfect.
Only in the rarest of cases can the branding bling of a Louis Vuitton bag be subdued and showcased effectively. In most cases the bag is way too gauche. Pairing it with an H&M disposal dress is a stroke of intentional (?) genius. Overall this look is yummy, if you don’t mind distracted male motorists careening out of control into fire hydrants.
If you donÂ´t understand the LOVE for a shoe, for a scarf, for an old t-shirt, for any favourite piece of clothing …maybe this is not your blog , my friend. ItÂ´s not the love for material things , itÂ´’s the love for BEAUTY. Anyway , relax Dani, LOVE IS IN THE AIR !!!
P.S : I swear i love my boyfriend almost as much as my new green ruffled coat.
are those really ankle boots? I think they’re just super-high heeled oxfords. But I love the ankle boot look with black stockings as a general principle–saw my friend from Sydney doing it last winter, and she got her boots from Scanlan and Theodore. The heels were wooden and cone-shaped–before everyone started copying the wooden heel later that Spring. It was a fashion revelation for me.
Back to this girl. First, she’s unusually beautiful–not just pretty or cute, but she can make serious money off of her looks. Second, she looks like she does have lots of money, and has the benefit of connections to dress and look the way she does. Third, I adore the smock dress look–yes, very YSL from the 70s as someone else said. Fourth, I am ASTOUNDED the dress is from H&M, esp. given what I observed in point #2. Fifth, the black tights with brown shoes do actually work here, unexpectedly. I’m learning so much about where and how to shop and dress from your blog, Sartorialist, and all the excellent fashion junkies who read and comment too.
This is a great photo, a great look, and a great looking woman who knows how to dress.
Mmm I hate to strike a discordant note but I’m not enthusiastic about the waif-like, Mia Farrow look. The shoes are making her spine bend inwards, like a teenager hiding her bosom. Black tights and brown shoes are a no-no in my book. And the bag is too baggy. But she has a nice smile.
Okay, ladies and gents- I have to say this after reading all of these comments. WHY DOES EVERYONE FOLLOW TRENDS SO LITERALLY?? Yes, currently we are being hammered over the head with short babydoll dresses, lovely shoes and wonderful black tights to excess… But must we let it suck all of our personality out of an outfit? Sometimes choosing one trend is better than every single trend trotting off the runway- and making that trend OUR OWN. The only original aspect of this outfit I really admire is her use of color. For this- BRAVA. For all else- YAWN. Sart- Please feature more people with original style (e.g. the Rocker Chick from a day or two back, or some of the lovely older gents in your archives).
First of all, The Sartorialist took a picture of a girl wearing a dress I have and I wear it in a similar way although i dont wear heels becasue i become to tall. I just wear it with black leather ballerinas, and bare legs.
I agree with a lot of the other comments this looks like an editorial shot, I love seeing you grow baby Sart!
