I love the fresh down-played sophistication. The creamy scarf giving a more refined touch to the tight jeans. The colours are great grey-cream plus a hint of light green…it fits her and it shows thanks to the glowy smile…well the long thin legs help also ;)
By the way, thanks for your pictures. So refreshing when you’re sitting behind a unhuman grey cubicle. It is a great source of inspiration and shows style is for everyone as long as you give it a bit of energy :)
Hi, I really do love your site but this picture left me rather unimpressed. The small dog being cradled by it’s owner instantly conjured up images of celebrity trash for me. No offensive to the lovely lady! The peppermint bag is also horrid.
boring. great figure and love all the colors in the shot, but the outfit makes me yawn. I also think the city has a HUGE surplus of teeny tiny toy dogs. It would be refreshing to see a stylish man/woman walking a nice big dog. Just a thought. :)
The girl with her dog-they look alike-the tight jeans and the surroundings,the cute small shoes and the large pashmina in white.These are all okay.But I have seen before this weird color of the bag on a pair of shoes in one of your previous pictures Sart,and I donÂ´t fancy it.
Bit confused as to how she cld possibly be regarded as sartorially admirable. She looks like she’s escaped from the WAGs section of Heat magazine. Small dog. Check Balenciaga Lariat. Check. Spray on jeans. Check. Complete absence of imagination in the sartorial department. Check.
Wasabi green is making a huge comeback and I think it’s best in small doses, like this lovely handbag…also, I love white cashmere wraps, especially worn almost like a top, like this one! Maybe I was the only person sad when it wasn’t okay to wear a pashmina anymore? ;-)
I have to say this is the first photo here in Sartorialist that I didn’t like.
Yes the girl is pretty, blonde and tall, but so is everybody else.
What is about her Sart that you liked? Please do tell because all I can see in the photo is the tacky outfit that her small dog is wearing, that generic-looking mint green purse she is carrying and tacky skinny jeans and white shoes.
This whole outfit screams Paris Hilton circa-2000 with her Tinkerbell dog to me for some reason.
I see the trendy pieces but also, simplicity. The hair, cleanly-cut and has a polished but effortless look. The colors she’s wearing are serene: shells and sea glass. Summery but not cold. The wrap adds a hint of formality. Great smile. Heiress? She’s not wearing earrings!
for anon 12:52 I wish finding inspiration was as easy as you make it sound overall I think it was a really great week
p.s. if you want to get more from the blog don’t take the looks so literally – abstract inspiration
couldn’t this post simply be about mixing icy tones of cream,grey, and mint in an interesting way. I thought the mint was an inspired choice to go with the rest of her look. I think most women would have gone for brown leather or black but she did something a little different.
With legs like that jeans can’t be too skinny. She looks lovely–not trashy Paris. Give it up about the dog! How offensive is it to talk about someone’s pet as a fashion accessory?!? The woman, like many of us, has a small pet. I am sure she loves it even more than she loves the bag–she must because if she were looking for an accessory she would have had an afghan hound.
I just love this little doggy what a pretty pretty face looks sooooooo well looked after… The girl looks fresh and pretty and Young and Starry eyed Its funny isn’t it That dogs can look like their owners… But i guess we should never judge a book by its cover Should we…..
I normally worship the pictures that you put up, but I was actually really disappointed in this one. Her wrap is different, but it isn’t enough to counter her horrid trend following. (Wedge heels, skinny jeans, over-sized bag, and dog accessory.) If I had wanted to see this, I would have picked up a tabloid. Sorry. Other than this though, I love the people and outfits that you find, as well as your skill with a camera.
For those trashing small dogs – a lot of us have them in the city because we live in teeny tiny apartments. And they are great….and low maintenance, and there’s a million other reasons. Sometimes you do have to pick them up (like when you walk 20 blocks and the little legs can’t take it). Seeing the dog as an accessory, and then dissing said person for having the dog (who is not using it as an accessory), will start an “anti-small-dog trend” that lands lot of innocent animals in the Pound, or worse, euthanized. Let people have their dogs. Big, small, who cares? They are amazing, adaptable creatures.
Now that mint purse – yikes.
Otherwise, love the photo Sart. I like the look on her face.
As usual the photo is good – well composed – the pastels look great on the grey background. But… this ensemble is rather middle of the road (skinnies tad to tight, peeptoes and pashmina and THAT Balenciaga bag – seen it thousand times before) and as a dog I do not like the chihuahua as accessory thing…
Isn’t it possible that she has a small dog and it needs some fresh air, and instead of getting it trampled under foot, decided to carry it to the park? Why do small dogs immediately conjure thoughts of p.hilton? Can anyone have a small dog anymore? The shawl- perhaps she was anticipating a cold building. The bag and shoes being from a few seasons ago: sfw! She is getting her money’s worth. The jeans make her legs look amazing. Lighten up people.
geesh, i can’t believe how judgemental some of these comments are. so you don’t find her outfit that “inspired” – fine. But celebutard trash? Dog as accessory — someone even questioning her potential as a mother? She lives in New York where finding an apartment that allows having a a small dog is hard enough — finding one that allows a larger dog is close to impossible. Sart asks these people before he takes their picture — this is a normal girl here in the city and you are passing judgement on her why? I’m sure we are all mature and sophisticated enough to keep sartorial comments separate from personal ones.
i highly doubt her dog is just a “fashion accessory”. those of us with very small dogs often find that carrying them is by far the easiest and safest option for the city streets. oh, and sart, your manhattan pictures are DIVINE. viva new york!
