It IS fun! It’s hip, young and carefree. Certainly nothing to be ashamed of wearing out in the streets in the middle of the day. Good to see she is taking no precautions, yet flawlessly projects fun fashion using an unthinkable combination.
this is just a funny observation: but whenever your subjects are smiling big (like this woman pictured), don’t you find that they receive overwhelmingly positive responses from us? people seem much more apt to respond positively to someone who is radiant and happy…
anyway, i love that the overalls are a bit loose on her – it’s so charming.
i cannot fathom how she did this. for one, she really should look much more farmer-y then she does. aside from it being one of my very favorite colors (orangy-red), that shirt is just.. i mean i picture it on a man, with chest hair, at a magic show, at a county fair. the zippers on those overalls indicate that she did not strip them from the nearest scarecrow, but in fact, paid a lot of money for them. and again, we’ve got that interesting silhouette of voluminous pants cinched at the hem. and.. the wretched bootie (yes, hers are quite cute, i get them sartorially). will i ever cave? maybe i’ll be a witch for halloween, and then inconspicuously integrate them into my winter wardrobe. but she is a peach, and her hair is spot on. it’s precise AND jagged. maybe she really is magic!
I swear the sartorialist is pranking you. Every time I see something that I think is just so-so, or downright ludicrous, I expect to see at least *one* other comment that mirrors my own, but commenters on this page seem to blindly love whatever is posted. It would be nice to see some comments that at least play devil’s advocate to some of these ensembles… Are they being disapproved by the sartorialist and thus not published??
Anon 8:54am you simply have chosen the wrong image to make this comment on. Check the post with the gentleman in the Thom Browne whiter suit or the gentleman in the plaid shorts – I think you will see a very wide range of opinions.
I agree that i would like to see more varying points of view but often these opinions are coupled with words like goofy, clown or worse. I’m all for fair discussion but I insist on a respect for the people who are being shot..NO ONE deserves to be publicly called goofy because of what they are wearing.
I can only speak for myself, but when I am unmoved by or indifferent to something posted here I tend to move on. When I dislike a look, I also tend to move on unless I can say something constructive or make a thoughtful contribution to the discussion at hand. On those occasions when the photograph inspires or surprises or just makes me smile, I take great pleasure in saying so, and I suspect that this is often the case with others who comment here as well.
I think she is stunning. I love the shirt and the shoes, very feminine shapes and great colours to match what looks like a vibrant personality, and it contrasts so well with the baggy overalls. Daring and fun!

You may be onto something there but it is more likely that the Satorialist is censoring the comments to his blog, and I suspect many unfavourable comments never see the ‘light of day’ published list. This may just be one way of protecting his profession, less negation of his work, more work comes in.
for Anon 1:14pm wow you could not be more off base. Don’t you think it could be not about me and more about feeling a sense of respect for the people I shoot? They didn’t ask me to take their picture, I asked them. Because of that I will we need to be a little more respectful when we comment about them.
These are real people and some have told me they have been a little hurt by comments left here.
This blog is not a place to mock people, so if you cannot think of a way to state your opinion in a tactful manner then the opinion wouldn’t go up.
I really cannot think of a situation where “makes her look goofy” could ever be respectful.
sorry if it doesn’t work for you , but II will always try to maintain this standard.
