Lovely – gamine *and* sophisticated. The jacket is perfect. And oh for such tidy pins! I’m really interested to see opaque hose paired with peeptoes and sandals more and more…once this would have been a very bad idea? And maybe still is, unless you the perfect combo of great shoes, expensive hosiery, killer legs and the right attitude!
If there’s anything to be said about platform heels, is that they do wonders in making legs look longer. I wonder if this woman works for YSL, since both her purses are from there? Great outfits, very basic! The image of Carrie Bradshaw leaving Big’s apartment wearing nothing but a crisp starched white shirt and an H belt is burned in my brain- the second photo brought it back.

Back from Paris a few days ago and her look was everywhere but she looks better than most. By the way, at the airport, I picked up a copy of Madame Air France, and there was a wonderful, full page photo of you wearing a blue scarf.
I love this; so chic and the perfect amount of sexy.
What I couldn’t help envying though is someone who gets to go to work showing so much leg. It must be a female dominated environment. I can’t show a lot of leg, even in 100% opaque hosiery and with a loose jacket on top as she has in the top photo, without the men getting all twitchy and starey, things I avoid in a business environment.
I long for a job where this type of look is encouraged!
It’s informative reading all these comments. I think Anon. 1.17pm raises a good point about the second outfit, where this lady going? Is she going to meet some friends or her boyfriend? is she going to work? in a design studio? will she go to a meeting in this outfit? I think this lady is cool and stylish (great hair!) and the big bag is a perfect accessory for this look, i still can’t help feeling she looks a little under-dressed. Help me someone! – am I OLD ?! (i’ve been 35 for 5 years now) I am too conservative? (small c, nothing political here…) am i hopelessly out of date ?? I’ll even admit my mother is convinced i was a Duchess in a former life on account of my sartorial style… Sart, do you have any demographics on who reads your blog? i would be interested simply from a personal point of view. i like this blog because i feel i learn a lot both from Sart’s photos and everyones’ 2cents.
um. the first photo is nice but the second — WHAT is her outfit? it looks like she’s wearing a bathrobe. not flattering at all. a shame, because she looks so great in the first shot. i just can’t get on board with the olsen-twin outfit in the second.
fantastic legs! very thin though that need not be a requirement for beautiful legs, it’s the shape of them and you can’t fake that baby! the clothing is short but well done, she’s not giving it all away.
i was at F21 today thinking about all those short jean shorts and what could possibly be next … add that to Katy Perry and Lady Gaga never wearing pants … and you have a choice of three Next Big Things
Oh, she’s fantastic! Does anyone know where she found that perfect striped top in the upper photo?? I’ve been seeking something similar for years!
Also, I doubt her second shirt is just any old random boyfriend’s button-down; check out the seaming, the sleeves, and the size of the collar. I bet it’s by one of the cool Japanese or Belgian designers…
She looks fabulous, but I too am curious about her work and living environment – I lived in Paris for years and gave up wearing short skirts while I was there because the unwelcome attention from lecherous men is so overwhelming. At home in Ireland the menfolk are much more discreet! ;-)
i own the shirt she’s wearing in the second photo. it’s designed for women in a very square, oversized shape. the sleeves and the seaming are what make it truly unique. French brand Surface 2 Air (love them).
