On The Street…Broadway, Soho

The hat, the bag, the shoes – the accessories are all so quirky that I don’t know if it all works together but you can’t help but notice it. Again, it is one of those looks that don’t quite “work” in the traditional sense but that get you thinking about how you would do it – that is called inspiration.

    I like the bag and mini skirt…the hat & the sunglasses are Ok for me…but I’m not sure about the shoes…I think the shoes make her look a little bit weird…

    Love the shoes with that skirt and that top!!
    I would totally leave the cap at home…The shoulder bag ads enough color.
    I just don’t seem to see caps as an acceptable accessory.
    -caps are in the same level of flip flops: too casual-
    I like it the look…perhaps summer school appeal?

    You have a great eye! I totally would’ve passed this one up. I love the casual shirt/dress with the loud bag.

    You’re right, it doesn’t quite work — maybe if the shoes were a little dressier/louder/funkier? Might pull the whole thing together.

    I think it works — all of it from head to toe. She looks fun and comfortable in what she’s wearing, comfortable in her skin.

    The look is very summer- comfortable. One question- is it Lindsay Lohan?

    she looks very smart. i’ve seen a look quite similar suggested in some magazine quite recently: particularly the shoes worn like so. anyway, i do think it works very well.

    Her look is pretty interesting as it is but…if I were to play stylist for a day …..I’d lose the shoes and do high heel booties in a bright blue suede. Ditch the hat and the bag…keep the sunglasses and the Barneys bag. Her blouse is long and gray and shapeless, the skirt is so simple…I think a small purse with a long strap worn across it would be a sexy addition.

    everything except the hat. i actually like the idea of a hat, just not this one. the shoes work on her because she’s so slim. she’s very cute and cool and i’d kill for that bag.

    just to verify, yes, the bag is marc by marc, spring 2006

    I don’t know about you guys, but i think without the shoes, the whole outfit wouldn’t work. Love the shoes.

    hi, I wanted to say a huge thank you for your blog. I read it daily and it reminds me of an excellent, creative art history class. It truely opens your eyes. Yes, you look at the picture, trying to “crack” it yourself. But the picture truely starts “talking” to you once you read the post.

    I just can’t wrap my head around this one. I’m sorry but it kind of looks…it looks like she got up and threw something on on her way out of the door. I’d have to pass…with no apologies.

    OMGoodness.. so reminds me of “sex and the city” I’d always want to dress up as one of them but thought, “where I live, everyone is a critic and if they don’t like it, you’re looked down on.” I wish my town was like NYC!

    Keep those pix coming!

    Ballet flats with the ensemble would have been wonderful, I think.

    she is weird and cool and confortable, isn’t this a sign of style?

    She’s a good friend of mine and a stylist….you can see her work in the Anthropologie catalog. Her own style is very quirky and it totally works for her.

    For me, the shoes are killing it. By themselves, they are cute shoes but they don’t seem to match the tank top/tiny skirt combo. A casual sandal would work better.

    I love the whole thing. The shoes are hilarious and somehow inoffensive. A weird mix that I think only she could pull off.

    Actually, I’m kind of tired of looking at outfits like these with flip-flops. The shoes are different. Probably she looks so happy and relaxed because her feet don’t hurt!

    I like the hat and the bag together. I probably would have gone with blue shoes (keds or converse maybe), but I’m very traditional.

    Honestly, it would work for me 100% if it weren’t for the shoes. An understated sandal or a funky athletic shoe would be better. But hey, she was probably just off running errands in her comfy shoes, and who can fault a girl for that?

    Long over short is a great look on a woman.

    Love her sense of color and pattern. Love that she is wearing that madras floppy hat and print Marc bag. The finishing touch is the lace up brogue shoe. It’s unexpected and quirky. She is is casual yet pulled together. Not a lot of people have the confidence to wear hats but she obviously does. Bravo to her and bravo to you for capturing her image. We need more girls like her walking around town to “inspire” people to do the mix.

    Cute! And a little crazy. She looks like Diane Keaton might if she were 35 years younger, and a lot less UV-phobic.

    The draping on that T is perfection. It would look amazing under a an 80′s style blazer.

    I can’t believe so many people are critisizing the shoes! To me those are what make the outfit. Without them she would have looked like a dozen of other NYC girls. Sure they’re a risky choice, but they work for her, in my opinion.
    Go Sartorialist! Keep the amazing individuals coming!

    I agree with Jessica. Really bag is so eyecatcher & mini skirt showing her sexy.

    It seems to me that Teri is a little bit right but I’m not agreed with her/his that shoes are seen wired. Though already I have loved her mini skirt & also his outfit sexy figure.
