    The print on this dress and the bright pop of color on the shoes is genius.

    Ooh, I love it. Very modern-cool. Not a big fan of the ciggie, but I adore that ring. It's really textured and gives a pop to the outfit!

    The print on the shoes and dress are unexpected, yet not. There is a logic to the madness. I adore it!

    Aiiish! She's gorgeous and, in a grey fashion world, isn't afraid of wearing colour. Nice curvy legs too, instead of the usual baguettes.

    p.s. I'd like to say thank you for always, ALWAYS, including people of every colour, when you cover Milan, Paris, London, Sydney, etc… people have a limited idea of what beauty is (see Vogue and other mags which are still overwhelmingly white) – You're doing your bit, surely but discreetly, and I have noticed and I bet others have too…so merci beaucoup.

    I adore the shoes, which would be fine on their own with a simple black or nude dress, but paired with the dizzying blue and the rolled cuffs and cinched belt, provoke a most languishing mood.

    Absolute adoration.


    October 8, 2009 at 12:24 am

    Hi, I love these common italian girls, they are so stylish. I love the dress, it's very Emilio Pucci design, and the motocycle…it's a pitty it's not a Vespa. lol

    Nice combo.

    But, really Sart. Does everyone in the world smoke, or is it only in your world?

    Do you capture so many smokers because the outdoors is the only place left to them and you shoot outdoors?

    Or is everyone who's into fashion a smoker — to keep thin?

    I know its all all about Paris right now, but I have been going through your archives and have yet to find a photo taken in the Upper West Side. Are we really that unfashionable up here? Just wondering. And, I'll keep looking…love your blog.

    This seems like one of the most impractical things to wear while biking…but looks completely perfect!

    Is it really OK to combine a brown belt, red shoes and black bag together? I don't think so.

    What a cute Asian girl… I am sure she is Thai and they are just so good with fashion and not afraid to try anything…

    Yes, very elegant, and I love the way she looks with her sunglasses!

    I think the way she has rolled up her sleeves is marvelous.

    Here I am again, with the shoes. I seem to be the only one that noticed that they're about a half-size too big. And it must hurt like hell on her heels. I like the bit of baguette that some bird or squirrel deposited on her bike!

    Very Italian… see girls like this all the time in Italian cities…..they have a natural sense of style and collectively Italian women are amongst the best looking in the world….also her legs are great by which I mean sexy…….just right for the shoes.

    I love that the shoes are a completely different pattern than the dress, but they just go.

    Master's-level pattern mixing. Love it. Too bad about the ciggy, but still she even works that.

    The dress is nice. It has a great pattern. Not sure about the accessories.

    She seems to have perfected the scowl of disdain. But she shouldn't! The cigarettes alone will add years to her face; she doesn't need the wrinkles from the scowl on top of it. Smile girl! Not everyone has famous bloggers taking pictures of their clothes everyday.

    LOVE this outfit like everyone else, but a little intrigued by her choice of shoes for riding a scooter. I ride one myself and am terrified even to wear heeled boots.

    This is Leaf Greener, a Senior Fashion Editor at ELLE China, and she's wearing a menswear silk jacket, not a dress (!), from Beijing based designer Xander Zhou.
