By all traditional thinking, this young woman is a splendid cacophony of what not to wear together–black felt hat, a print dress that could have easily been resurrected from a 1950s summer, black scarf, black hose, white sandals and flowers in her hair. Stuck on the cusp between winter and spring and ready to dive either way. Rather than comments on what she's doing wrong, I hope that people see her for what she truly epitomizes–the relentless hope that conditions will improve. But if not, she'll adjust. Human resiliency is a wondrous thing.
I love having a glimpse into the trend-free side of fashion. She's absolutely stunning and her outfit and smile exude joy. Thanks for covering this event – I don't think I've seen so many consecutive smiles on a streetstyle blog!
I'm so glad you've been covering Gov's Island. I spent most of my time as a child there because my dad worked for the Coast Guard and I've always thought that it was one of the most beautiful gems in the city. I'm now in Oklahoma City, 13 years later, and your pictures bring out both the best of the island's beauty and some fantastic style shots. Thanks.
For a women to wear an outfit of florals boy to you need BIG kahunas. This lovely lady just epitomizes understated cool. She has a great confidence about her and the mix of textiles in this photo is almost touchable. great photo.
Young, spirited, idiosyncratic – redefining what works and what doesn't. Don't fool yourself thinking her outfit is the result of an accident: note the eyeshadow and nailpolish. She is brilliant. Love her!
