    Love the bag and the gloves. Love the sleeves and the quilt-like pattern on them. Don't like the sunglasses (sick and tired of those)

    If you'd described this dress to me I don't think I would have liked it – but seeing the execution… Perhaps it's because the color and cut are so unexpected in leather. Really beautiful.

    Love the colors, love the outfit. Too bad she did not take more care with the hair. I am always disappointed when I see someone, male or female, this dressed up in beautiful clothing drop the proverbial ball with unkept shoes or a last minute hair fix.

    So much lovely leather, I can almost smell it. Favorites? The braided handles on the bag and the softness of the gray shirt to juxtapose all the toughness in the leather.

    I'm liking the shapes and textures a lot (even though gator skin kinda creeps me out). The sunglasses are a bit over-done in my opinion, but hey overall it is a winner in my little book.

    One thing I just have to get off my chest, is how annoying it is to see all these beautiful, creative people smoking! Grrr. I've been following this blog consistently for a long time (well, as long as it's been going, at least), and while I can always still respect the photo and the outfit, it does get on my nerves the shear number of smokers around here. But, hey, that's just my opinion and I still love these pics! I guess this is more a rag on the culture associated with fashion, which unfortunately tends to promote an unhealthy lifestyle. Oh well.

    She looks familiar. Is she an actress? This look seems tailored for her. I cannot get over the texture. The polished nails are a plus.

    Also, I love the cropped shot of the young woman with eyeglasses gazing at the subject of the photograph.

    Funny what one likes appalls another. I like the messy hair, and the handbag straps. The shape of the dress is kind of gladiator? though, but the color and texture are great on her. Fingerless gloves: why not? Cigarette? Oh well, she has time to quit.
    Sunglasses … who is it who says: Pffff all the time…..?

    Sophisticated color combination. Lucky that the background wall matches. The fingerless gloves would be a bit affected if she weren't so natural looking and if her tunic didn't balance them so well.

    She looks like I did when I was twenty and on my way down. Maybe a little out of control…so the picture makes me anxious. I always love BV bags, and the gloves are great, and the attitude is fragile, temporary and fashionable, but not so solid, as some of your real beauties. Interesting..a thousand words..

    I have to dissent from the overwhelming majority who seem to love this. The dress (or shirt?) looks like what it is – an animal hide – unfortunately not much more or much less. It's extraordinarily unflattering, in my view. Leather can be fashioned into such lovely things, but as a unifying theme, it doesn't seem quite right (at least not in this outfit).

    To all the people talking about smoking; STFU, talk about the fashion and the picture and not about the cigarettes, its getting really annoying. Its Europe; more people smoke and unlike here one is not looked upon as a criminal when smoking a cigarette while people the size of elephants are walking down the streets chowing on their big macs

    Here’s the thing: it seems such a testament to the STYLE the Sartorialist captures (as opposed to just trends) that I find myself referencing his photographs constantly for wardrobe inspiration, no matter the date they were originally captured. No matter if some or all aspects of them were a trend at that moment in time, somehow Mr. Schuman finds subjects that clearly have their own agenda, and it’s often timeless
