    All kinds of possibilities for a wardrobe malfunction with this pose, but both you and she kept it together. ;)

    Her hair cut is so cool. I also want to shave the side of my hair like her, but it would be difficult to find a new job as i am expected to ! (sorry my english is not perfect)

    Immediately I identified with this as being one of the most uncomfortable moments I could have on the street. Cold (the people in the background are wearing jackets), navigating in heels, and dropping a bag, exposing more of my cleavage than I bargained for, and possibly to much of my thighs, and then having my picture taken because I was “hot”. This says it all in support of dressing for oneself first, not to to meet a cultural model of vampiness..at least during the day.

      Interesting reading… mine was completely different: I see a remarkably confident woman who feels comfortable enough with herself to simply stop in the middle of the sidewalk & dig around in her purse to find something. She clearly knows how to avoid a wardrobe malfunction, which suggests she’s at home in and knows her look. So I read her as having very much dressed for herself. I, on the other hand, could probably not pull this off with such (or any) grace, so I won’t try it. :)

      She doesn’t look like as much of a wallflower as that. She looks very serene and comfortable by her expression. She is hardly revealing too much cleavage, and she isn’t “hot”. She is hot. And I think she likes herself.
      So I agree with the second part of your statement. Thats why we should all dress for ourselves and not assume that our way of thinking is the only way. I bet she would feel far more self conscious if she were wearing some loose slacks and flats.

      August 17, 2012 at 1:42 am

      She didn’t drop it. She set it down as she is looking inside it, instead of picking it up.

    Digging the hair and the general ’80s vibe. Ray-Bans would have been the perfect finishing touch!

    Very sexy. I like the monochrome black on black look, and the way her gold necklace matches the gold studs on her bag. I don’t know if that was intentional, but I like it.

    She also manages to pull of that: I-couldn’t-care-less- attitude, which she obviously doesn’t. My girlfriend would never put her bag on the ground. She scolds me when I put grocery bags on the floor.

      Huh! That was my first thought too! She just throws that very expensive and coveted bag down on the ground like it was nothing in the middle of the city street and digs around for the grey shirt/sweater taking her time. Not worried by anything at all that woman. Thats why she is so sexy. I think i learned a valuable lesson here.

    She’s a pool shark. All the 80′s comments made me think of Scorsese’s THE COLOR OF MONEY…and Julian Billiards on the old 14th street.

    Great background. Cute woman. Love the black/brown combo, the neckpiece, the hair, and what I can see of the strappy high heels (which also appear to be beige). Love how the whole thing comes together. The thing I love the MOST, is there is not a cell phone or tattoo in sight.
    It does not detract from the blog,
    however, I have always suspected that most of these images are staged. No woman that I know will even put their handbag on a floor, much less a filthy NYC sidewalk. Matter of fact, back in the day, I used to come through Penn Station, traveling between upstate NY and NJ, and I would never put my leather overnight bag on the floor in Penn Station. Why? In NYC there’s a newstand box (one in the background over her left shoulder), telephone booth, or some other less dirty surface on every corner. Not to mention, a woman who looks like this, would be most welcome in virtually any establishment and, unlike us mere mortals would not need to purchase anything.

    I live on this street.

    Its amazing how a photographer can capture something you see everyday and make is special and more beautiful. I often find myself getting annoyed at the blaring orange lights coming from Amsterdam Billiards, however when looking at the juxtaposition of them against the beautiful design of the church, they somehow become more meaningful.

    From here on out, I will start dressing up more in hopes of being captured by the Sart’s lense….
