    Nice silhouette, the jacket is great, the colour of the shoes and socks are a good contrast to the shades of grey of her trousers and hat.
    i like the picture.
    A happy new year to everybody from stuttgart, germany.

    Long, long time ago -when I was a teenager- we wore those shoes.

    Here in Germany they were called duck-shoes.

    I get it, I get it: slim-legged pants are short and off the shoe.

    Love the sea-green behind the gray stocking cap, and the usual contrast of focus.

    the streets are not flooding…someone should tell her it's ok to roll her pants down. overall a very unflattering ankle region.

    1970's flashback!
    those orange crepe soled shoes certainly make a statement 30 years later.

    What makes this photo interesting is the drape of the knit cap, the slight peplum of the jacket, the cropped ankle and slant of the trouser and the toe box of the shoe.

    all put together in profile it has impact.

    That's a young woman. My own daughter looks precisely this way, and MaryAnn has it right — the angle of the hat that flows into the drape of the scarf that leads down to the jutting peplum-bottom that drives down to the angle of the cuff and then that shoe. Perfection.

    I hope there's a lover in her life who, sometimes when it is cold like it is, pulls her close by the lapels of that wonderful cloth coat and brings her near enough to share their warmth and touch noses.

    The hunched up shoulders and hipster-leaned toque say it all about right now. Those shoes are all about happy feet!

    Hello Scott!
    I'm and American photographer living and working in Seoul for the past two years. I would love to show you around this amazing city, especially the cafes. I'm an expert on cafes here as it is what I photograph the most. I know the best ones in terms of lighting, architecture, ambiance and of course, interior design). You will be amazed, trust me.

    Have a great day!

    P.S. I leave for Paris on the 19th of January to participate in Maison et Objet but will return to Seoul on the 28th.

    simplicity is key.
    this outfit is nothing short of amazing, with the greys and blacks being the main part of the outfit, but then the shoes really stand out, simply for being a different color, not a bright one.
    you instantly look at her shoes.
    who knew tan could stand out so much!
