    For me, the slouchy boots ruin the look. When your ankles are the widest part of your legs, you look a bit like a Clydesdale.

    It’s spring!!! Shed those tights! I’m SOO tired of seeing this look. On the “carry all”
    1. Lose the excessive bag. Can smaller size purses come back please! Women have got the whole SUV syndrome going on with these purses (the bigger the purse, the bigger the…well you know).

    2. What color is that purse??? BROWN?!?! Mon dieu!

    I do however like that confidence in the outfit.. THAT is definitely what makes it work.

    she has the big bag b/c she is a model and she keeps her book in it.

    i think people forget “real life” sometimes gets in the way of presenting the “perfect look” but at the same time i think it makes it so much more real and inspirational

    and Clydesdale is the last thing i think of when i see this girl

    Fabulous- black and blue is my favourite colour combo. Love the jacket, dress, tights, boots- not crazy about the brown bag, but the rest makes up for it.

    OK, I agree that she is clearly toting her Wilhelmina/Next/Click book in that Chloe-esque bag but, come on, Sart: you really think that’s the main reason she’s got it? Function? Naw. She looks great with or without the bag but is carrying it because it’s oversized and, therefore, of-the-moment. Oh, models.

    Sorry to disappoint, but “carry-alls” are a much-needed accessory for women (models or not) who have more to their day and life than just showing up and looking fabulous.

    I particularly enjoy the fact that her haircolor very nearly matches the poster behind her.

    I don’t understand when the commentary on this site became “rate my look” but I find the nitpicking so very tedious

    I don’t want to speak for the Sartorialist, but I don’t think the intent of this site is for small minded twits to tear apart the folks he chooses to shoot

    They are real life people – on the street – with a sense of style and grace. Not manequins dressed according to some set of rules w/in your head.

    Appreciate the beauty instead of tearing into what ever flaws YOU are projecting on to these very real people who have been ASKED if thier photo could be taken

    Is this the consequence of our Jerry Springer reality TV culture…

    Where or where have all the interesting people gone?

    I’ll always love a big bag myself and I’m no model. I don’t like to be at the mercy of trends OR the weather OR basic necessities so I always have water, something to read, something to write in, a scarf or cardi and so on. self-sufficiency is hot.

    I’m loving the leather jacket. So hard to find longer sleeves… so says me the orangutan-armed girl.

    I love the combination of the black, blue and brown. It’s surprisingly fitting without being excessive.

    Maybe she’s just carrying the bag because she thinks it’s cute.

    She looks great. Unfussy but interesting. I live in Southern California, and I’d rather see a bunch of girls in this outfit than the interminable mini flouncy skirts and flip-flops I see all year round.

    Beautiful, beautiful girl. What I like about her is that not only the whole outfit is beautiful, but there is not a single thing that is a trendoid eye-sore. Even the big back and the slouchy boots that might look as trying too hard on someone else, look great on her. 10 out of 10.

    the dress is from forever 21.. ’cause i was thinking of buying it last week. she looks great. it’s the confidence that sells the photo.

    OK before I saw all of the posts that knocked her big bag, I thought to myself: “Hey, here is a girl that has a lifestyle like mine. She works, she has some kind of job that makes it necessary for her to carry all of her stuff in that super cool bag.”

    She is like me.

    Only, alas, I am not a model!

    But my point is, there is something special about the look that resonates with me. I think it’s the functional quality of the slouchy boots. It doesn’t look like she is trying too hard, in other words.

    She wants a look that is pretty, yet edgy and comfortable at the same time.

    Somehow, I think if the bag matched her boots, all of this “ease” would be lost and she would be trying too hard.

    Adore the boot and tight combo. Great alternative to leggings. It’s cute without looking like she tried so hard.

    great look. the slouchy boot creates a look akin to the tight legged jeans that is so hot right now: the too long very tight leg is supposed to slouch at the ankle.

    If I had hair that color, I’d wear bright blue everyday.

    I love her. I’m jealous of her, too.

    Not a super huge fan of the makeup, but that outfit is sweet. I’m completely loving the bright blue/brown/black thing she’s got going on. The huge bag makes it better because she’s appropriately dressed for what she does all day.

    I like her smile…wry, sardonic…

    agree with the first anonymous. i love seeing these for the sense of beauty and style and grace and enthusiasm that is a thousand times more vivid on these real people than can ever be emulated by a stephen meisel vogue pic. i love these real people, even when there style/taste is not mine (and even more so when it is not in fashion right now) and if i get a little inspired by their passion too, that is fantastic!

    what a fantastic look. Smokin street hot with ease.

    I imagine the very dapper Mr. Wooster standing next to her and he only comes up to her waist.
