        Cute yes. Innocent yes. Mousy; Absolutely not at all. More like boldly modest.

          I agree! Mousy? No. More like classy. This girl has style. That je ne sais quoi. Look at her eyes! Those are not mousy eyes. x.

    There is! She’s lovely. She’s already developed a form of je-ne-sais-quoi that all great, stylish women have.

    Nice color combination.

      That is a very clever color combination. Its catchy. But the coat is what I am looking at. I have been looking for one just like that. Oversized, but you don’t drown in it. I love the 80′s rebel tuck of the collar. Now I want to do all that.

    She is cute, but more importantly, your photos from Nashville makes the city look like a place with a lot of soul. Maybe it’s the season or the particular places, can’t put my finger on it.

    Great color saturation in the photo. It screams Autumn and her color choices and simple dress are fantastic. She looks timeless.

    November 29, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    Avery is such a wonderful girl! She´s got something special. There´s something mystically in her gaze, a special aura around her. I cannot explain better.

    This girl (or should I say “young woman”?) could wear a trash bag and still would look wonderful. And she doesn´t need tons of make up, because she´s a natural beauty.

    I like the picture very much, what Avery is wearing and also the whole athmosphere.

    • hazel

      November 29, 2012 at 7:28 pm

      Good point. Avery’s look is divine, but I could not have dressed like that at 16 because even if I could get myself to the stores, my clothing budget only allowed thrift shops. Which was fine, in its way.

      • ladykatza

        November 30, 2012 at 1:10 am

        FOR THE RECORD: Nashville, in general, has a thriving thrifting and sewing community. She may not have paid much for that outfit, it could be its vintage/handmade. This is not a neighborhood of affluence.

        In any case, I think she looks right smart and a proper little lady. *nods*

    • Martine

      November 30, 2012 at 3:00 pm

      That look probably doesn’t cost that much. The shoes I recognize. they are from Urban Outfitters, and they are good leather and quality, but not expensive. I have the black pair. They were around 30 dollars. Tights are cheap. the coat looks vintage.

      In any case you don’t need to be wealthy to have a few expensive classic pieces, and add to them. Most kids I see look like they spend a ton on their clothing ESPECIALLY in poor areas. The poorest area in my town has a lot of teenagers with Sean John Jeans which cost at least a couple of hundred… and they all have very expensive tennis shoes. So its not like poor kids don’t spend a bundle on their clothing. Much more then this modest outfit.

    Perfection! So impressive she’s so young and so sophisticated! One of my fave Sartorialist shots ever.

  53. James W

    November 29, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    I’m so pleased that she’s fashionable AND age-appropriate. So many young girls these days equate being an adult with showing more skin. But she outclasses all of them, making her appear much more adult than her age.

  54. EVa

    Innocent but stubborn eyes. Lovely shot!

    Love the tights! It’s a playful but sophisticated outfit – perfect for any young woman – but her facial expression is what makes this such a striking picture.

      November 30, 2012 at 12:48 pm

      Excuse me… Nashville is not a small town, and despite the big-hair-and-rhinestones stereotypes surrounding it, it’s not at all surprising that Mr S found some very stylish people hereabouts. (Hell, the legendary Katy K makes even the big hair and rhinestones fabulous!)

  84. Chgbus

    November 29, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    Men will dash themselves on the rocks for this girl one day. Her gaze is haunting, like she knows what you’re thinking and is one step ahead. Hope for the future? Not in Nashville. This girl will end up in Paris or Tokyo. She won’t talk much; her gaze will say it all for her.

  85. Ana

    November 29, 2012 at 9:35 pm

    Totaly agree with Eileen, Avery could wear a trash bag and still look beautiful. She is sutch an adorable and beautiful young lady. She looks sweet and inocent but very elegant and sufisticated at the same time. The photographer had a very good eye when he picked her to be here, what a smart man. I can’t wait to see more of her, i have a feeling this is just the biguining of a big carear as model. She knows how to look to the camera and say so much with her eyes….yup, we will hear about Avery many times.
    Love this picture! Great conbination of colors and looks great on her.

    November 29, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    I’ve seen a lot of girls go from city-chic to runway-chic– and really, it is in the way that they hold themselves– and she’s got it (don’t get me wrong, I love her outfit as well; she does the fashionable Nashvillians justice). The coy smile, the straight-backed confidence /almost/ disguised by the modest squeezing of the hands. She knows just how to enchant/ charm the audience without seeming haughty.

    LOVE the indie-chic look. Between the clothes and the gaze, this lovely young lady could just as well be walking down the streets of Paris as she is the streets of Nashville. Would love to see a hint of matte gold at or above the neck (by scarf, necklace, wristlet OR earring–not all) to pick up on the playful gold of her shoes. Still, very well done—a great and stylish example for gal pals transitioning from teens to young adults.


    November 30, 2012 at 4:09 pm

    I love how she keeps her outfit innocent and age appropriate with ballet flats. So many teenagers her age are wearing platforms and sexy heels. I love this shot!

    She is absolutely stunning! Perfect natural beauty and sense of style. She would make a perfect model and inspiration for girls. She looks classy and sophisticated. Her look gives so much depth and power to the picture. No heavy makeup and high heels, this picture proves how beautiful girls her age COULD be
