this is a perfect example of elegantly mixing and interplaying seemingly incongruous elements: the bold green striped skirt and pop of red with the structured purse, a soft loose falling camel cardigan, a thin belt, a jaunty hat, high and sturdy men's inspired loafer heels. she looks incredible, great shot.
I love that you’ve written this. I have the same thoughts so often when looking at The Sartorialist. I hope I’m learning to be less boring but simultaneously I want to streamline what I have. Anyway, regarding this woman, if she is the one Scott has featured a few times, she often has what I regard as a contemporary Mary Poppins atmosphere in her looks. Which is a sweet thing.
I love all the pieces to this outfit but so unexpectantly put together! I especially adore the shoes and there again is that striped skirt (Prada?). The hat is jaunty (I love a good hat) and well, she looks like a very interesting person. Fab photo.
To be honest, I'm not so sure about this look. Individually the pieces (except for the skirt) are nice, but the combination is a little off for me. She reminds me of Olive Oil. :( http://www.skylarkmanor.com
well …. it seems to me with this, as with many of the outfits on this blog, that if you have a killer figure and always wear at least 4" heels, you de facto have 'style.' It helps to be seen in a major style center like NYC too!
my eyes opened wide when i saw this, sooooo fabulous!!! all the colors, including the yellow taxi, the knee highs, that amazing hat, even her bandaged thumb! perfection!!! i love it! a modern day coco chanel!
This is what I love so much about living in NYC! This woman looks completely comfortable and happy with her fashion choices… her body language says it all! The bag and skirt are bold and the neutrals take it down a notch, giving the look a more casual feel. She's an individual!
Love how she takes several seemingly casual and distinct pieces, and puts them together in a way that really emphasizes proportion and color. The skirt is perfect, and so is the color of the cardigan and the hat brings it all together. a lovely lovely look!
Love the way she took simple, clean-lined, laid-back pieces and combined them into an intriguing, individualistic whole. That's style! The look's proportions (length of sweater, skirt, socks) are just perfect, and the shoes are amazing, esp in the way that they, along with the vintage hat, bracket the look.
I do think the bag is rather loud, but then again, I tend to consider deep aubergine and midnight blue "brights," so take that as you will. :)
the pose is epic, i guess she did not intend to stand like this just for the photo to be taken, is it really possible for a human being to move in such an elegant way? this could be a painting. you are artists both scott and cool lady
This is one of those pictures that everyone likes and everyone comments on. Well, here I am, just another comment in the batch. I love this picture. It's people like this that give me hope for the human race.
There's a reason why this outfit works: everything fits. Love that red bag and those shoes, by the way. The striped skirt anchors the outfit and there's a good mix of neutrals and solids here. Also, almost all colors of the spectrum and represented in this photo.
Agree it's too much. The hat, the bag, the skirt, the shoes — all fabulous, just not all together. And please allow the cardigan to take its retirement. It doesn't do your lovely poise and confidence justice.
