when high heels started getting higher and higher..i found myself admiring a pair in a lovely store in manhattan. the woman next to me, pointed to the shoes in my hand and said that she referred to them as 'limo' shoes.. because they were too beautiful and too high to be worn when walking any great distance.
Hi Scott, I started following ur blog some days ago. Amazing pictures, amazing people and outfits. IÂ´m a big fan! I really liked both pictures, the first lady is so elegant and the second one look so cute with the beautiful skirt (or dress?) and the lovely heels! Hugs from Brasil
I love the 2nd outfit. Even though I am big heel-enthusiast I would take smaller heels with that, something funny, f.e. I have got a pair of balerina shoes which look like oxford shoes (or a pair of gentle colored leather shoes would fit that outfit too), anyways, all pictures like this remind me of the vidoclip of Blue orchid by The White stripes…ouch :)
In the second picture, I love the casualness of the top, the lose hair, and the minimal makeup. These elements "make" the outfit and ware what is often missing from the mini-mini skirt and high-high heel — the look of comfort and ease. Well done.
It's the tightness and worlds of contrasts in the shots. The hard sleek shiny sturdy limo, chrome, stillettoes,the tightness of the space, ancient streets smack up against the softness of the lovelies in their elegant high fashions with the ease of their stances, the warmth of their confident 'world by the tail' natural smiles. All hugged by the light, my god, the light.
I wonder how she keeps her hair so blonde and amazing. The skirt in the second photograph is lovely. I wish I could say something super intelligent regarding contrast or depth or some other photographer term.. but I'm sure I would just sound silly! All I can say, without having much knowledge on all this jazz, is that the photos on this blog are fabulous as are the imaginative outfits. Do you ask everyone if you can take a photo of them or do you just start snapping away? Love x
These are the pictures that epitomize New York Fashion! It's chic it's classy elegant and just screams New York. You can't go wrong with black. The tights with the skirt and heals are perfect together and what I said in my own blog is a great look for the fall. This is classy and timeless. This is New York.
Why do women insist on wearing high heels? Uncomfortable, impractical, and unflattering. What makes a woman beautiful is her own distinctive, natural style, from which she exudes comfort in her own skin. Dangerously high heels kill that almost every time.
I like the second picture. Or actually I like bitha as pictures, the colors, composition etc. But i like the look of the second woman much better. She looks really nice and beautiful. The blonde is stylish of course, but not so interesting. To the comment above: a lot of men do not like heels at all. Its a matter of taste. I think heels on a medium tall or tall woman looks great. On a short woman its a NO NO. If you're under 165. looks stupid, as if they want to be taller, or borrowed their mum's shoes :) But on these ladies, heels looks cool!
