    I love it. I like the stripe of soft blue in the background and the frame behind her.

    if wisdom was an outfit,

    it would look like this.

    simple, elegant, and bold without being bright.

    Those old Scarpe boots, and the new Fracap's are brill'

    On a lady in linen they're even better.

    I really like the fact that you don't have to necessarily wear things like high heels and short skirts only to be fashionable, she looks absolutely amazing, all those beautiful colors, her blue cigarette lighter matching with the blue wire, love it!

    Though I am not a fan of the boots, the outfit itself is quite gorgeous. The color may be understated, but the materials certainly are not.

    So lovely – her face just pops right out of the whole ensemble. (Too bad about the cigarette, though. Cough, cough.)

    This is so wonderfully evocative of Edward Weston's "Charis, Lake Ediza" (1937). I wish I could post it.

    Enough about the freaking cigarette, already!.

    I'm stoked to see such pants, I love wide leg pants and I've never seen ones so wide; they must look gorgeous when she walks.
    The whole thing is just beautiful, way to go, girl!.

    I love her elegance, even when one wouldn't expect these pieces to work well together. Linen and Zamberlan hiking boots? Big wool socks and delicate silk scarf? But they do. They do.

    Beautiful moment, well seen – well photographed.

    June 30, 2009 at 11:00 pm

    Amazing! What a beautiful study in drab (and I mean that in the very best way)! It makes the textures so visible. I love the drape of the linen and the scarf (maybe silk?).

    it's the quality of the fabrics (including the suede boots) that make the look. perfectly nuanced.

    So much grace and beauty. Love the elegant touches of the scarf and the beret with the harder edge of the chunky boots- and bien-sur the Parisian staple of the cigarette held just so. Wonderful shot.

    I'm loving the grays here. Another great shot. I'm losing sleep over here because of them, but it's worth it.
