My God! This is EXACTLY my ideal way to dress. Was watching Grey Gardens (again) last night and as Little Edie would say, “It’s the ideal costume for day!” Such a feminine and cool mix of hi/low, nerdy chic as there ever was! J’adore!!!
I always have considered floral prints to be especially grandma-ish. But she does it in a way where it’s youthful, sexy and glam. The military-style coat, tights and mary janes with her understated hair/makeup bring it all together. And her smile is so humble. NICE!
What a contrast with the last woman you showed agaist those stripes! Have we seen that dress before? I love it. And now I see that the grey hose work work as an alternative to black when worn with a bright flowery dress.
This is so perfectly unperfectly perfect! The military coat, the heavy grey cardigan with black patent belt, the swingy violet flowered dress and the way her brown bag picks up the trim on her coat sleeve and the bronze leaves on her dress. Plus, don’t even get me started on her tights and shoes. Oh swoon. One of the best ever.
WOW! She manages to layer while maintaining a perfectly nipped-in, femenine silhouette. Everything is just perfect in fit and proportion. She’s magnificent and I aspire to look so effortlessly chic. Well done!
Sart, We went to your exhibit on Saturday – it is wonderful. How did you pick the sizes of the photographs? Did you consider making a few extra large ones near life size to give people a sense of the street scale – just an idea. Great blog, Sart.
I’d say that dress is vintage…. Lovely combination and I’m keeping this one in my inspiration file. Love the patent belt and shoes and the bag is a wonderful touch because a patent bag would’ve been too matchy-matchy.
Are those Louboutin shoes? I really like the dress. This is inspiring to me. I have always been a pant person but recently I have decided to make a dress for spirng. I imagine the cut would be something like this, emphasizing the waist. She has taken a classic sillouette and has made it universally hip. To me it is all about the dress and shoes (are those rhinestones?).
Great, fresh look-lovely. Edgy without being unapproachable. Nice mix of textures/prints. Love your blog! Am enjoying oohing and aahing over the great looks and am very much inspired. Perhaps when the weather warms….
Very much reminds me of what Diane Von Furstenberg just showed in her fall RTW line at fashion week: feminine printed dresses layered underneath belted, often bulky knit sweaters or coats, and perfectly accessorized. Anyone else see the similarities? Either way, I love it!
I love how the gold in her dress really brings out the gold rings around the sleeves of her coat. I would have never thought to pair charcoal grey tights with cobalt blue and gold however. The dress is just amazing. I wish I knew who designed it.
