    WOW. Such a perfect combination, and these pieces are all basics that she can wear for years to come. I particularly like the bag (anyone know by whom?) and the shoes. Also the cut of the jacket- I can imagine it in very soft cashmere. Jorge from WPB

    Call me crazy, but I think only little kids should wear jeans with rips in them and the rips should be put there by them.

    She looks great! But this is not exactly original – if you make the bag a burgandy prada and make her blond, it's sienna miller's everyday uniform.

    i clearly remember a picture of this woman during fashion week in nyc. she was wearing the same shoes. in my opinion, this is fantastic styling. who is this woman? since this is the second time i've seen her on your blog, i'm sure you will be assembling a 'style profile' of her in the future.

    damn. i'm in love.

    Casually perfect. Is it only an accidental mix of what she happened to have in her suitcase, or an effortless sense of style? How great those oxfords look! If this young, stylishly aware American in London is any indication, we'll be seeing a lot more of them, and maybe more of the luggage brown mixed with denim and black.

    You know, I honestly had to read through the comments to realize we are supposed to admire the outfit and that this wasn't Sart's first venture into cynical fashion criticism, i. e. using "American" as a pejorative: the ripped jeans, cutesy watch, backpack-sized purse, ubiquitous water bottle, self-absorbed texting all say American to me, and not necessarily in a good way.

    Okay, two things: one, I think the jeans RUIN the look. Her layers of t-shirts are loose and to add a pair of ripped, big pants do not look good! And two, I think to myself I have seen this look before and then I remember I haven't, but if you take away this bag, she looks like all the men posted in your September 2009 archive!

    Great laid back outfit, it does have pieces that could be considered trendy or worn to death, but I think the fact that they are trendy and she makes them look like they show her style is what makes them work so well. Great pieces and yeah the bag is by Miu Miu a couple seasons old though I remember seeing it for quite cheap last fall season when everything was like 80 perecent off at saks and neimans.

    Not a big fan of the holey jeans but love everything else. I have a pair of shoes just like that buried in my closet (they are actually a men's narrow)… but I *WANT* that bag!!!

    the shoes are ralph lauren collection wing tips. i just got a pair and they are amazing. versatile too-you can pair them with almost anything you already have in your closet.

    Guess I'm the only one who hates the bag. No offense to those who own or covet it, but to my eye it's just… well, badly proportioned and gimmicky-looking. Love the shoes, though–so glad that oxfords may finally overcome ballet slippers as the flat of choice!

    The look is PERFECT. This "boyfriend" jeans are fantastic. The shoes give the look a bit of sophistication. And the cut of the jacket is ideal.
