    At first I saw the stunning divine face with pure look and beautiful hair, then the great mixture of different textures and details (like those socks) and at the last I rolled down and saw the shoes – firstly I thought they look like from some kind of futuristic computer game, but – weirdly – they WORK! I really adore this modern fairy look.

      Actually, she looks like a picture of a mermaid in one of my favorite paintings. I have really seldom seen such a beautiful feminine woman, with obviously tough attitude. I think a modern fairy is appropriate.

    Interesting. It’s new, there’s an idea . . . but, the shoes are simply monstrous. They are ugly in themselves and an affront to style and panache. They are a design atrocity . . .

        I agree. There’s too much ‘OMG Scott I love it, love it, love it’ attitude on these threads. Sometimes the looks are hideous and we should not be afraid to say so. Debate is healthy.

          I agree that that attitude annoys me sometimes(actually I mean: ALWAYS).

    The shoes are random, but her red hair is of course fantastic. Even like the mille fleurs pants, which I normally do not like at all. Her face is stunning, no make up and so fresh and perfect.

    This picture is great, it shows that fashion is made by your self, its what you like and what is most comfortable that matters. This girl is unique but also just so herself. Love it!

  28. Nico

    December 9, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    She’s gourgeous and maybe I can accept that mix of patterns, even if looks like she has chosen that clothes in the dark, but that shoes are terribly ugly.

    Ps: she is looking at you as “what are you doing man?!”…really expressive!

    She is beautiful. From the arms up (minus the phone) she looks like a Renaissance painting. A true original.

    December 9, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    I am not surprised with her look at all, but it just brought me back to my years of middle and high school. A lot of us were like this girl on the picture. We thought we absolutely didn’t pay attention to fashion as we didn’t care about brands (eventhough we had some fixations on skater shoes, converse and Dr.Martens) but we were, in the facts, really careful to what we wore.
    I remember to be really careless (understand that I had fun ^^) with the mix of colours and patterns and that I loved wearing sarouel and long skirts on pants, putting big necklaces and a LOT of rings. Yeah my teenage years were certainly a period where I was very creative fashionably without even knowing it :).

    A real good picture !

    Gloriously strange and beautiful. The shoes are perfect for the look–the profusion of flowers & the youthful socks could skew this toward the cutesy-sweetsie, but the shoes balance out any tendencies in that direction. As, of course, does her expression.

    The shoes are meant to be scary. A girl alone in the big city needs to
    send out some signals. Especially when you’re as cute as a button like she is.

    • Nana

      December 11, 2012 at 3:01 pm

      Haha Darrell, your comment made me chuckle! Loving the grunge/hippie/raver/steampunk look! Come to think of it, this is like a hippie/grunge KTZ or Jeremy Scott.

      In response to the other comments (not yours Darrell, this is more concerning the ones that categorically disapprove), just because you see an outfit you would never wear, doesn’t mean it is automatically atrocious. Approach it from another angle. Had you seen this on a runway, you would’ve probably lauded it!

      I think she/he’s being highly creative, and just being themselves, they are beautiful (I am also having a hard time telling whether it is a boy or a girl, not being mean spirited as I am myself quite androgynous and often get mistaken for a boy, it’s just that sometimes you don’t know, and it’s pretty awesome!).

      So yeah, I might not like the shoes, but it totally works.

    As a composition: The polarity between the orthodox (the sweater and glasses man in the background) and the unorthodox (the floral prints and goth shoes girl) captures a very compelling 21th century culture clash.

    Oh my, seeing her face, jacket and pants I was prepared for anything but not this pair of vintage plateaus. It is different, indeed.
    I am sure she could be really beautiful if she’d do something about her hair. The color is brilliant.

      Are you serious?? She “could” be really beautiful? That is one of the most attractive women i have seen on this blog, and there are many very beautiful women on this blog. Thats also possibly the most beautiful hair I have ever seen anywhere. Its perfectly thick and natural and undone. Beautiful people don’t need to primp to be beautiful. they just are.

    She is so striking. No I do not like the shoes, but together with her expressive face, her rich colours, textures and pattern they tell a story: I’m beautiful, feminine and imaginative but don’t think you can mess with me… Her face says the same.

    What I really love about this photo is the nostalgia it inspires within me…all the traveling done in my twenties, the hoofing around cities lugging my backpack…the look one gets when it turns colder than expected or you stupidly bought books and now your clothes no longer fit in the bag…and those “horrendous” shoes? Bet they really take her places. Great slice of life Scott.

    I will date myself here, but I am fairly certain I had those exact pants in 1990 when I moved to NYC at 19 years old. And I also had some “monster shoes”. Sigh.
    Now I totally understand my mothers horror at my obsession with the 1960′s when I was in my teens. She could not comprehend why I would ever go back to those fashions. And I am now left wondering how these kids can go back to the 1990′s. Oh my.

    A hot mess and a loathe the socks … but each piece individually I love. I’d wear each one with everything else in a neutral so the one piece is highlighted instead of all jumbled together.

    I’d really like to know where she got the shoes!

    It is a good and interesting photo: I love the very beautiful hair and the confident expression on the face.
    However, the shoes are hideous, they look like 90s techno/rave shoes. And while I like the unusual mix of patterns, the clothes look dirty/worn out. This person looks like she (or he? I am not 100% sure) could use a shower.

      Its amazing how people sometimes write things they know better then to say to a persons face. Of course I am sure we all know that the people pictured will read the comments, so its really no different. At least lets be honest and say that if most of us showered for a year we wouldn’t be half as pretty or half as feminine as that young woman. If she isn’t modeling, she should be.

      • Christina

        January 4, 2013 at 11:15 am

        I said mostly good things about the girl (hair, face, mix of patterns) and the photo (e.g. composition). I hope you allow criticism – this is what this blog is for.

    The street fashion of youth must present frisson and dissonance to the eyes of older people or those who follow rules. Her shoes are important in this respect. This a very sophisticated outfit.

    I never imagined I could hate so much a mere pair of shoes. But they are so unbelievably grotesque! Jesus…

    What also strikes me in the picture, is the cellphone. Without the cellphone and without paying attention to the background, you would’ve thought this picture was taken in the 90s. She/he could be Jay’s (from Jay and Silent Bob) more thoughtful younger sibling!

    nice hair but those shoes are like “trying too hard” for me. that’s ok though if she’s a teenager.

    To all the people who are so completely bothered by those shoes– the Sartorialist wouldn’t be the Sartorialist if it portrayed perceptions of “Style” and “Beauty” the way mainstream opinion does. If you want conventional and non-insulting, please redirect yourselves to Seventeen. Everyone’s entitled to an opinion, but it wouldn’t hurt to try to view things from a more open perspective.

    I admire this girl’s choice to buy and wear those shoes because I’m sure they make a statement about who she is and how she wants to represent her own style. Just because they aren’t sky-high strappy heels, isabel marant booties or your typical grungy-throwback pair of beat up converse doesn’t mean that there isn’t something here. Look with open eyes. End rant.

    I wanted to hate this when I first saw it.
    It was too grotesque.
    But for some reason I keep coming back to it.
    There’s something other worldly about her.
    Beautiful picture. Very thought-provoking.

    She looks fiercely perfect. There is not one ugly thing about this beautiful nymphette!

    I love it. Her shoes look artificial, almost animated.

    the shoes are shocking, even all on their own. they’re different but sort of visual eye candy, the color and texture. maybe it’s because I live in a small town in the midwest, void of fashion sense/labels but I really like this. i want to see more and touch the textures haha

    Very sorry but I think the outfit is horrendous and the shoes, utterly trecherous.
