This is a nice slihouette but the matching button-strap detail (what is that called?) gathering both the sleeves AND the shorts is too cute-not in a good way. It almost gives a childish look to the outfit- like she’s wearing a playsuit or something (which I guess she is, in a way). I’d say one or the other would be preferable to the “matching set”. While I’ve seen this detail on sleeves many times I don’t think I’ve ever seen it on shorts. I like it on these- not as bulky as the sleeve treatment.
I love the look, esp. in LA, but I hope she’s just really young and not too, too thin from dieting. Maybe it’s just the way she’s standing. Ach, LA freaks me out. Anyway, she’s gorgeous and has a lot of style.
She looks gorgeous, and I agree that her hair is just outstanding. Regarding the sort of playsuit look to her outfit that someone commented on…she’s at the pool! I think it especially goes well there. Perhaps if she were out to eat or something it might look a bit off (but maybe not).
Although LA as a city isn’t my favorite, this shot is refreshing over the usual city shots in that there are sunny skies and and you can tell she’s outside! Just lovely.
her henna tatoo and fringy haircut makes the look. i really like the sleeves, but i think black is too severe for the sunny poolside. if that were an all white outfit, it’d be perfect. black makes her look uncomfortably hot.
superb photo and outfit. This girl exemplifies the LA vibe…fashionable, laid back and confident. It’s so funny to hear New Yorkers putting LA down. Ahhh, jealous of the sunny skies and laid back attitude. It’s ok. We still love you. p.s. here’s a tip..next time you visit LA, explore more than just Beverly Hills and Hollywood Blvd. and you will get the real LA experience.. cheers.
People need to expand their thinking about LA fashion! What most people see are people from Hollywood and the Westside tanorexics … the eastside of LA – Silverlake, Loz Feliz,Eagle Rock, Echo Park – is where you’ll see a more eclectic style
I’d say she looks super-LA. The only part that might make her look more NY style (but not myself) would be that she’s wearing all black maybe. But I think the black looks especially good with her shade of hair.
Hey Sartorialists! Is this the same girl posted sitting with spiderman not so long ago? The two girls looks super similar and kinda have the same henna tattoo thing happening.. any way both are amazing! Woo I’m hesh!
Its funny that people keep saying she looks New York. Why, because she is wearing black?? The skimpy shorts, the perfect trendy hair, huge shades extreme skinnyness, the henna, the super blue pool with the palm trees…. she could not be more LA. The shot looks like a cover of LA magazine. But it looks good on her.
pretty much anytime it’s the summer, LA runs as fashion king, and in the winter, fall, and spring, the award goes to NYC, but this girl looks 100% LA, which is a FANTASTIC city for fashion, but if you don’t know the cityscape, you’ll never know where to find it.
LA is a city where people avoid being in public, but crave attention. The hottest people with the greatest clothes are in secret clubs and behind tinted windows, but every once in a while one of the elite slip into the public eye and haute coutour is revealed.
Beautiful, but I have to disagree about the hair being a great summer look. I’ve had bangs in the summer. Not fun at all. It looks ridiculous wet and even worse windblown from a convertible. Not to mention the sweaty forehead. But, it looks stunning on her of course.
A few people have said “go outside of Hollywood”– forgetting or not realizing in the first place that the crowd at the Roosevelt poolside is filled with Silverlake/Echo Park/Downtowners…many of whom sport as indie an LA style as you will come by. CC lives in Echo Park. Cheers!
This girl does not look new york at all. this is very l.a. you cant say angelenos have no style because every neighborhood has its own personality and many designers are inspired by our natural laid-back casual chic look.The city of beautiful people. PERIOD:)
She’s an actress/party promoter originally from Arizona. Cool as can be, actress and party promoter called CeCee Sheffield, did some hosting work for Nylon mag online and was in an LA band tho not sure if that’s still the case. She is/was also a cobrasnake favorite.
hi im c.c. sheffield just saw this and read the comments. um im not fahrani, no i met the satorialist from my friend karina she said met her friend from nyc and bring some clothes at the roosevelt pool. he was nice didnt know about his site until i took a look afterward. i was also in he spidey pic and everyone kept talking about my brusied shins. sartorialist you are an amazing photographer, can you send some pics of me and karina? xo cc
i'm confused by c.c.'s comments…i always imagined the sartorialist's photos to be rather "happy accident". I believed he wandered the fashionable streets of the world & happened upon the beautiful people with fabulous style & shot them then & there… why did karina ask cc to "bring" outfits & meet her at the pool? was this a photo shoot of the traditional variety or an impromptu session? i'm such a fan of this bog…please tell me my initial assumptions were correct!
