    High style Americana. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. What fabulous lighting! Love the black stockings, shoes, bag and bangs. I'm feeling very patriotic – having been born on Memorial Day, this photo speaks volumes to me.

    GORGEOUS photograph! It needs to be in a magazine. And I love the horizontal stripes contrasting with the vertical. Who says you can't mix your stripes?

    This dress is so chic, but so unconventional at the same time mixed with the derby shoes.
    She reminds of a 30's version of Maggie Gyllenhal…

    Fabulous…. but question: is that a dress, or baggy shorts? Look a the dart on the left leg, and the way it blouses out, esp. at the hemline. If this is a shorts jumper thing, I want one. How sweet!

  93. Anonymous

    June 12, 2009 at 11:27 pm

    It is a stunning visual story as you scroll down the picture to see the horizontal stripes of her blouse followed by vertical stripes of her skirt almost mirroring the vertical columns.
    The shadows that extend the stripe effect is the perfect finish.

    I adore her hair, but I feel like her outfit would be better with red pumps and some sort of semi long necklace – perhaps a golden heart necklace or an antique locket.
    The bag is great.

  116. It's a very smart play on conflicting stripes with those class loafers.

    The slightly punk/retro vibe with the very traditional architecture–what a perfect photo.

    It would be perfect if it were not for the bag that looks out of line with the strict monochromatic look. When you put bag next to the shoes the outfit speaks of a bank heist rather than an idle afternoon on an island.
