You have no idea how much good it has done me to discover this site…she does pretty much everything “wrong”, and yet, she has mastered the art of personal style, which speaks volumes, and she is !gorgeous. Not skinny, not perfectly proportioned; zoftig, leggy, busty, and absolutely iconic. Thank you, thank you so much for putting the “whoa” back in “women”, and the life back in style. You alone have validated me.
Not many people can pull off a high-waisted anything unless you’re tall and slim. But she did it very well. Either that or you took the shot in a very good angle :P I love her shoes. I think it’s a really cute look without being too cutesy. Gosh, I wish I could pull off the high-waist thingie!
Sartorialist i really apreciate your job, i’m form brasil, and i want to know, you are only a photografy or you have anotehr job? sorry about it. = D i love what you do.. i’m trying to do this with my pictures to, this is so funny you know.!

Great shot! I like her homage to vintage 50s style without being retro. My fiancee has a similar look to her and also wears high waisted vintage 50s sidezip jeans which really are flattering if you have some height. I think you’d really see some great looks if you came out to a big rockabilly weekender
Ah thank you. I was searching for how to describe what I like about this and you’ve done it for me! It’s become so de rigeur to mis-match accessories that this jumps out, but it works due to the homage factor.
She really is darling (although I had to view the large photo to see it). But its not her clothes — especially not the high-waisted skirt — that does it for her. Nonetheless, she’d be darling no matter what she wore.
It’s a high-waisted skirt, but it’s got stitching that follows a low-waisted profile, almost giving her a low-waisted skirt with a little bustier above it. To me, that’s what makes it almost work. The flaw in this outfit for me is that I like a long torso and I find that this woman doesn’t have much torso to begin with and she can’t afford to wear a skirt like this that steals from it.
I live in a town where indulging in fashion is comletey dead, so it makes me happy to see a woman dressed very well and confident. She looks great and i hope to see more photos of woman wearing all american style(We need more of it!).
I’m happy to see you post a person that is a little more in line with the average American build. She is a great example of someone that does not have the typical build of most of your postings. Style does not always require 3% body fat. A healthy build is just as sexy as all of the waifs that are usually posted on your blog…with the exception your occasional posting of the portly, elderly man. Style is about how one carries ones self. Would like to see more postings like this one. She looks great!
