love the floral printed shoes, gold mulberry bag and dress. the green polka dot coat seems to fit, but really, the headband/gold necklace seems to have overdone it and pushed over the edge. otherwise, could’ve been a GREAT outfit!
Great outfit! It seems to me she captured the spirit of Prada’s brocade shine for Spring ’09, for what hopefully is a fraction of the price. I have seen a few Mulberry bags on the street, and I think their patent leather is superb. I love how she manages to pair 2 shiny fabrics with a metallic handbag and manages to pull it off. I am sure we will see comments on the Doc Martens also. Jorge from W Palm Beach
It looks more like a Late Summer or Spring combo, but it is lovely! The dress + jacket look so beautiful together. Where are they from? The head band is also very interesting. Perhaps the bag is too fancy… Somehow it pulls the other items back.
Great shot–illustrates that a smile is the best accessory to almost every outfit. Shows that you are comfortable and having fun. Her shiny effervescence contrasts well with the brick and concrete backgrounds. Nice one, Mr. Sart.
Hope you had a great holiday. I always took forward to your blog updates.
Now this is working. Lace-up shoes add a fresh, young & unexpected punch. She pulls it off by adding a patterned headband in similar colors. She looks put-together but not boring. Reminds me of something Agyness Deyn would wear.
I adore this look. Normally the top or bag would be the focus or the item that pops in a outfit but her boots gives the outfit another exciting edge and adds more of a visual interest. I can dig it baby!!
She looks like she has fun getting dressed and I completely endorse this aproach. She also does it in a very particular way, which i think is essencial… specially when you’re not 13 anymore. Aya San! Anata no style yo aishiteirunda!
Hey at last! Nice combination of metallic colours/ surfaces, bronce, silver, green-golden….broken by the flower-doc martens and her pink fingernails.I think her legs disappear perfectly in her boots! She has a positive aura!
Definetely very cool! I love the dress coat worn casually, and I love the girly pinaforey dress worn with sneakers- the effect should be reminiscant of a playground, yet there is a very grown up and sophisticated undertone. It’s really lovely! I’m liking the bag, too! What do you readers think of the Bayswater? I’m thinking of getting one in oak for my eighteenth, since my requirement of a new laptop far out-measures my desire for a Chanel =[
I like everything except those boots. They don’t work–I wish to never see boots like those again with dainty feminine dresses like the one she is wearing (which is beautiful by the way). I get the theoretical dainty/tough juxtaposition–but the aesthetics don’t work for me.
I remember those boots from the 80s and my friend threatened to wear them to her brother’s wedding w/ a bridesmaids dress…Like the jacket, dress and bag. The colors are shiney in a subdued kind of way.
I discovered The Sartorialist about a month ago and I absolutely love it, so inspiring,it’s helped me wear my existing wardrobe in new ways, instead of rushing out to buy new clothes, which must be a good thing in these credit crunch times! What I notice is that it is the people wearing them that make the clothes work, and this lady looks so lovely because her personality shines through, and is reflected in her outfit. She just looks adorable. She has also made a lot of effort with everything,I particularly like her pink nails! It all works on her, because she appears such an attractive person – and she has really nice brown legs! Anyway, it’s nice to know there are lots of people out there who take pleasure in their clothes…
If you cover the shoes and just look at what is above them, or cover up all of her but the shoes, then suddenly pull your hand off the monitor and get the whole image either way it is a surprise ending; one that is at once silly and self-assured and very cheerful. The one thing I would change for her is to take some of the stuff out of her bag; it is so heavy it makes her lean. She is such a beauty that most any garment would be improved by proximity to her gorgeous face and her knowledge of how best to wear it.
