    Love the sparkle, love the belt. The shoes aren’t bad,although I think they would look a little bit better were the dress just a tad shorter. Can’t stand the glasses.

    Sweet, simple and sexy. Love the belt. A perfect example of how to make a mass merchant item your own. Nicely done.

    I *love* all these sandals. Must get a pair. They make all the women look like Greek goddesses, and they wear them so well.

    i’m sorry.
    can we make a dress out of the WALL?

    (love the pattern, color, way it catches the light. . . AND it doesn’t have ugly flower appliques!)

    the whole look is fierce. i especially love the nose ring – it is hard to pull that off well but she does.

    She looks great! Very pretty/exotic girl! Man, you’ve got a great eye for good-looking people! Wonder how many dates you get out of all these “may I take your pic?” thing…

    I guess that you have to look upclose to actually appreciate the detail.. I really don’t like gray but I like the detail and the fact that it was worn on day..

    i think the dress is lovely. however, the combination of hemline and sandals makes her legs look stumpy, and sort of ruins the line. she might try tying them lower …

    cute look though!

    Simply lovely.

    I love the brown & grey. I adore the shirt dress. I’m already envisioning potential outfits in my head.

    Now when are you going to add that feature where we can click & buy the clothes right off these people’s backs? ;)

    the outfit is not amazing but behind it’s the great storefront’s facade! and with the tree shadows it’s really cool

    Great photo. I’m not bowled over like some of you, but I appreciate how comfy she must be. Like sweatpants but streetworthy. I was excited to see so many cotton dresses available in the low-end stores, but mine seem to’ve lost their oomph right off the rack – maybe a few more percents elastane or whathaveyou would help. I am wondering if she has washed this yet.

    Because my stumpy gams make Hillary’s look downright coltish, I have a hard time looking at glad-sandals without reflexively thinking, “Stop! You are sacrificing inches from your visual leg-length”. And IMO a sleeve, ideally, should hit above or below where she’s got hers (I call it the service-station-attendent length sleeve) otherwise it can look matronly or mannish. And the hem could be an inch up. She’d probably have bought the Petite were one available in that size.

    Yet, despite all these ‘flaws’ – this woman looks fresh and pretty. Harumph!

    The belt does make a difference, saving it from looking like what was called in my teens the “Sack” dress.

    The glasses are H&M also – I don’t like them. The girl’s cute, though.

    she is adorable, and there are nice elements, but really those sandals make her look so flat footed and thick in the legs and that bag is at such a frumpy length. sorry to go against the grain, but thumbs down.

    I think gladiators that are tied up above the ankles call attention to the leg size (length AND width) and thus should be avoided by all except the very skinny. Sorry for being so fascist about it. But I love the belt and how effortless she looks in that dress.

    I’m sorry — are you trying to tell me that this woman is NOT SKINNY? Or do you suggest that shoes tied at the ankle are only for the starved?

    Since when do women need to look like supermodels or spend thousands of dollars on their wardrobe? She is beautiful, there is no extra width on her to call attention to (unless you call anno attractive), and I think her obvious confidence in her height is a huge part of her appeal.

    Nice work, Sartorialist, on showing innovative style as well as haute fashion.
