Bella donna! I love her preppy look with the khaki skirt and crisp white shirt, open enough to reveal her sexy sheer brassiere. Even more beautiful is her smile, it’s the best accessory that a person can own. Baci, baci!
Too cute! The little peak-a-boo purple lace bra. The tortoise-rimmed glasses. The flash of an infectious smile. The insertion of brilliant red roses by a disembodied hand. What a scene!
The belt seems a little over-sized for this look, but I don’t really mind it because everything else is perfect. I have a thing for women in white dress shirts. I would fall in love in 0.6 seconds should I come across this woman in real life. Well-dressed women cast that kind of spell over me. Absolutely charming!
Beautiful girl, very nice clothes, but the picture seems so ‘fake’ to me. For everybody who knows Italy, these immigrants always look so sad and out of place with their flowers and their poor sales techniques. Almost everybody tries to ignore them, it’s kind of a sad business, really. But if the picture makes people happy, what I’m I to say…
Perhaps it’s true somewhere, but in some places as the pretty isolated Spanish area where I am living, the most part of people say no to the street immigrants sellers simply with a glance and a open smile. Almost always.
The girl is very stylish and beautiful, but it still seems too staged too me. Sorry, after having lives for a long time in Rome, it makes me a bit sad. Maybe it’s my autumn mood… Glad though that it gives so many people romantic feelings…
This is 1980 styling. Great photo! She is girl next door (which means that she isnÂ´t Hollywood Glam) gorgeous and reminds me of a Cindy Crawford type. Maybe she isnÂ´t even aware of that a couple of buttons are open?! Looks like someone is trying to sell her some roses and she greets him with a warm smile! Great shot! I am a huge fan of a white shirt and kaki skirt/trousers! Always appealing!
those aren’t 70′s inspired…they are vintage brendel from the 80′s! i have the same ones in turquoise and i love them! i have gotten a lot of compliments on them, but also a few nasty remarks. nice to see them in such a lovely photo (and on such a lovely woman)!
This shot is a delight. I don’t care if it was set up, but was it?
The contrast of the roses’ brilliant hue, the woman’s face, hair and smile, and that brilliant thick belt with the llarge buckle make it special.
I’m now looking for a thick belt with brass buckle.
First off, beautiful shot and beautiful girl. I know this is a fashion blog and that you framed it for artistic reasons, but I doubt she always smiles so beautifully at Bangladeshi men selling roses. You yourself cut as much of him out as possible (again, for artistic reasons, but it’s symptomatic of a larger attitude towards them, displayed by most people I’ve seen in Rome… at least after they realize that the flowers/bracelets are not in fact free.)
“Her name is Sophina. It’s annoying when philistines leave out the ‘n’ in her name or mispronounce it. But it’s only annoying to me. She tells me to give them ‘the’ break. And she says that in her accent. It’s adorably attractive.”
Storytelling photo, such a nice shot! Only one thing and pls donÂ´t missunderstand me, but is this look with its sweet and sexy secretary-touch not a bit too old for a young lady like she probably is? Plus: one button up would be more sexy to me :-)
Everything about this photo is perfect and charming….unfortunately none of it actually exists except in the minds of a team of stylists, photographers, and assistants. Every inch of the photo has been painstakingly manufactured. A nicely done fantasy…..not that there’s anything wrong with that!
