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!
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.
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.
