    It seems to be she aced the much-debated gladiator sandals: not only does she have long legs, she paired the sandals with a skirt that sits on her natural waist, therefore elongating her lower body. Great idea! I think the top is a bit too frilly for the rest of the outfit, I will be interested what the women will comment. Love the bag and its stitching, and I would lose the collar.

    This outfit is a breath of fresh air. After a while some of these women begin to look a bit like clones. But there is nothing trendy about this outfit; except perhaps for the semi-gladiator sandals. I’m still not completely sold on the necklace but all and all it is fresh and adorable!

    I love the light, fresh colors in this outfit. This look is casual and clean, and she appears very comfortable. Perfect ensemble for a day about the town. It’s just that… I’m conflicted about the necklace! I want that bag.

    Whoa. I’m not usually surprised on this site anymore. Not that every picture isn’t brilliant, but you know, familiarity can hardly be surprising. But this…THIS…this is spectacular on so many levels. The length of the skirt, the shape of the top, the way everything hangs…the incredible perfection of the bag…and that whimsical collar…This is SPECTACULAR.

    Creo que absolutamente TODO este look se ve fantástico. Desde el bolso XL suela (ultimamente tengo un fetiche por este color) hasta el modo en que contrasta con esos pequeños detalles que rompen la gama general de tonalidades (el color de los labios, o el de su esmalte) dan la sensación de una imagen muy completa. Las gladiadoras interactuan perfectamente con las demás prendas,pareciendo su uso algo natural e indiscutible. Cada una de las piezas, independientemente, son estructuralmente ideales. Solo que muchas veces se malogra su combinación opacandolas. Claro, que este no es el caso, ya que no solo se pueden apreciar individualmente las tablas de la pollera y su caída, como tambiñen los detalles en la blusa sino un composé extraordinario: la nueva imagen que da esta mujer.
    El collar merece un espacio aparte, en resumen, es el detalle que te hace dudar solo para finalmente entender que justamente eso es lo que termina de dar el estilo al look. La forma en que contrasta su material..
    Un look que merece estar en The Sartorialist.

    this is the embodiment of easy, comfortable, individual style.

    and re: the gladiator sandal ‘trend’ that everyone’s been buzzing on and on about – how can it be a trend really if it’s recycled, without fail, every summer? i say we get over the repetition and just call it another style of summer shoe that’s 1) inevitably bound to be popular every year and 2) looks good on some people and not on others.

    I think that skirt is simply great… adjusting it to her waist: chic and classic but she gets an efortless look that amazes me.

    Plus the necklace… someone said above that its like a tribal. Have no words but I think it totally makes her look different

    The high waisted skirt is very beautiful and the bag too. Very feminine. Personally I would have worn the skirt with black top. Here in Finland I’ve seen so many pairs of gladiators this summer that I hope summer 2009 brigs something new. I think the collar is bit too much..

  33. Anonymous

    My first intuition would be to choose a more geometric top rather than the flowered one. On the other hand this top does break the clean lines of the other items and adds freshness to the look. Very nice. (And looks just perfect with this backdrop; well-chosen!)

    August 8, 2008 at 2:03 pm

    Wow, love this look, ethereal yet not too wispy. I think the necklace, neckerchief whatever, as someone already mentioned, is the item that you may doubt at first but actually works to bring the whole thing together. Her red lips, the natural waist skirt and all those soft pleats put me in mind of the 1920′s and the Mediterranean, and englishwoman in Italy perhaps?

    Such a feminine and strong look. Bohemian chic. Lovely and inviting.

    The structured skirt (and it's a perfect fit: waist, length, volume) matched with a camisole top! Brilliant.

    The vibe is that it's hot and she just took off her outer-top and why not? There's something simple & practical & beautiful about this look.

    Wonderful accessories, too!

    I love all of it! And, I agree with anonymous en espanol, the bag color is great. I wonder if the skirt is vintage Hermes. I had a pair of Hermes pants in the late 80′s same color and drape/waist. I even like the neck thing.

    Very, very beautiful. The collar is setting of the gladiators perfectly and together with the bag these three items are like an embroidered frame for the timeless summer outfit. Plus her hairstyle and makeup – everything matches wonderfully and still it looks natural and not artifical. Wonderful shot and what a beauty.

  47. rednexmama

    August 8, 2008 at 5:32 pm

    I’m not sure I like the collar in it’s own right, but I love it in the context of her outfit, and this photo. I love how it echoes the strong dark lines of her brows, lips, and eyes… Without it, her face could have easily blended right into her neck, with it, it creates a theme of smooth, dark swoops against the soft white of her blouse. I totally love her skirt also, but disagree slightly, in that I would have taken it in just a little (seems to bag away from her waist on the left side a bit).

    the neckerchief actually is essential to smooth down the white/brown contrast between her hair and the top. funny bag. love the way she is balancing the bag’s weight on one leg, just leaning on the other.

    anyone know how the bag is by?
    looks like an ann demuelemeester that i once saw (except the handles were different). i love that she rocked the neckpiece. i can guess from the bag/shoes/lipstick/neck thingee that frilly and girly is not her norm and she was just experimenting (as is our prerogative as fashionistas to do) , and imbuing her harder edge into a feminine look.

    very lovely.

    I totally agree with Anon 9:38 AM. Also conflicted about the necklace: it is an interesting piece on its own and it enhances her features and hair, but to me it looks kinda out of place with this outfit. But the rest of the clothes – fabulous and sweet. Make me think of early 20th century summer outfits, like those in the films “A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy” or “A Room with a View” (of course back in those days, the top would be suitable only for the bedroom). Classy without being rigid. And someone was dead on comparing her face to Modigliani paintings. Not a classical beauty, but so interesting.

    The scarf is actually my favourite part of her outfit! A silly little touch in contrast to an otherwise classic, almost typical-fashionista outfit.

    That said, I wouldn’t have paired that scarf with the frilly blouse, too much fuss at the top.
