On The Street…..Miu Miu Dress , New York

On a lot of girls this dress would be way over-the-top, too “look at my …”

On this girl though, specifically because of the darling haircut and demure smile it makes for a really great contrast. The sexy girl-next-door or “the librarian takes a vacation” kind of feel.

    Is it me, or does this dress not really fit her? it looks like its gaping across her lap?

    This was taken around 1pm

    I assume she had been sitting at her desk and just ran out to get some lunch – that is real life

    Another example of how it seems you can fall in love each time you turn the corner…

    i think this dress is very daring for a large busted women. but it seems like a very versatile piece otherwise. i see it with a long sleeved knit top and boots in the winter. wonder who the designer is?

    I love it. Agree that not many could carry it off, including the bold colours and graphic shapes. She looks fantastic!

    Please help, I’m fashion illiterate. Is that a separate white tank top under a jumper-esq dress or just one piece?

    It’s cute, but she’s certainly “busting” out of there. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. I hang my head in shame.

    I think it’s cute too (yes to the great coloring with her skin) but as a busty gal myself I might have opted for a darker top…it’s a bit too pop on top of pop for my taste…

    nah, that’s too much bust for me, although the dress is great

    I think that looks awesome. It has much more personality then what most women dress in.

    The dress is great…but I am hypnotized by Van Cleef and Arpels in the back.

    Va-va-voom! She looks fabulous: hair, skin, outfit, shoes, smile.

    This woman actually looks great.Few people took notice of the shoes, which are fantastic.Lots of people often criticize sarto that he always takes pics of the young, thin and beautiful. This woman is a great example of curvaciuos style, take a bow madam…

    Has the appearance of this woman caused the traffic chaos behind her? It would not surprise me.

    A bit too much emphasis on the chest for my liking – but for this lady, it works well on her. I think the hair length, shoes and tan makes the overall look come together nicely – lovely !

    It´s lovely
    I just love this type of dress
    using it with sandals, or a simple pair of ballerines,
    casual, confortable, natural…
    A simple way to fell inside, like this: If you want to do it, just do it!
