    one of the downsides to Spring's arrival is that we'll lose these great trench coats. at least the pea coat will suffice 'til Summer arrives in two months.

    Wow, going to Ralph Lauren really ages you! hahaha

    Both outfits are great. And I agree with the post above, I love a nice camel/khaki coat on a person, man or woman. Ah well, until next season.

    There's a bit more to it than that. She epitomises the Sartorialist ethic – really growing older gracefully. nd importantly – Insouciant! And of course in motion – somewhere to go! So it's a really lovely change from the static portrait. My fave picture to date !!

    I have no idea why, but I am in a real red kick now -, a couple of weeks ago, painted my toe nails a dark red, just got a red, rather sexy pencil skirt, will purchase next a red satin trench coat and I seem to slow down to stare at red cropped pants in catalogs and in stores for a little while now… this convinces me! And I love both the black shoes, as well!

  50. Lauren

    April 6, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    Both outfits are great! I love the coat in the first photo and would like to see more of this silhouette as an alternative to the belted trench. And the second photo is a wonderful example of the pairing of red and camel that's everywhere right now. Lovely with the black sandals!

    The second pic is great! Her shoes, red pants and camel jacket are perfect!

    BUT I can't stand these pics of women who are obviously uncomfortable in wearing insanely tall shoes/boots! SERIOUSLY, I am an aesthete, a beauty junkie, but I just CAN'T take these pics of torture anymore. NO matter how stylish it seems, women wearing HIGH HEELS are for the most part very uncomfortable NOT TO MENTION the job they do on your legs !

    Is it really that warm in NYC right now, so you can wear no socks?
    Well anyway, I just LOVE the second picture, i like it as she is movieng, not standing and posing, a woman i motion. I like that. I also love her outfit, I want a pair of red cropped pants for the spring and summer. The coat is wonderful and she looks so pretty and beautiful.
    The girl in the first pic is cute and lovely too, but her coat could have been ironed a bit :) The outfit is totally cool, but those heels will kill her feet.
    Thank you, such great pictures again!

    the second photo has such information in it…
    the man checking his cell, the woman waiting at the curb, the cop walking the beat, the gate by a closed store, the graffitti spray painted on the brick wall…and in the
    forefront is a brave woman..wearing sandals with colourful trousers and handbag.

    Agreed with Anonymous 8:46. (although it's okay to use your own identity if you're saying something critical)

    photo #1 is not an attractive look. It's cruel for adults to continue to let young women think this is okay. Let's check back with this woman in 20 years and see how her feet are doing.

    Whoah red pants! Makes me wanna get a pair now…then again not. Looks right on the small pretty lass, would look wrong on a amazon just as me. Love the beading detail she wore under the lovely camel. The colour is one that only allows good cut and right detailing. Really tricky finding the right one.
