I check your blog daily, and it’s even more fun to read now that I’m living in NYC. I moved here from LA about a month ago for school and I’m pretty sure I spotted you in on bleeker a few weeks ago in your silk print shorts and panama hat.
besides the dress being beautiful, the shot makes the picture for me. congrats sart! I like the combination between the white of the dress and the black from the umbrella. Even though the sky is quite dark, one can still imagine that it is quite warm.
I want that dress!! (where can I get it?) But i’ll leave the shoes. I think that she has great legs and these cut them in half. I would have like to see something that exposed some more skin and crept up the leg. Umbrella looks hot too?
ooooo…urban warrior. i am so glad she isn’t wearing gladiators, they would have spoiled the whole look. the shoes she is wearing say gladiator so much more effectively than gladiator sandals…i love the draping of the dress…it almost looks like a bed sheet tied up. an interesting look juxtaposed aganist the rainy street and black umbrella.
I love those shoes… any idea wear such interesting foot wear could be found?? She’s emodies that tough I am woman persona … love this picture. “it’s raining I dont care my umbrella will protect me and my shoes look better a bit roughed up”
How could anyone possibly want a tatoo ? It is so mainstream – too mainstream. Not to mention difficult to change. Whatever everybody is doing is not interesting anymore .Looks a bit cheap ? People change everything about themselves at least a million times a week. The only thing that is permanent : Their tatoos
It does look like she's going to a toga party but for some reason, I actually don't like this ensemble because the separate pieces seem to contradict each other. To me, the loose weightless-looking dress screams 'relaxing Greek summers'; the black umbrella says 'gloomy winter weather'; her heavy-looking bag screams 'stressful baggage'–all very contradictory to me. I'm still not sure on the shoes but wrapping up your ankles also does not say "summer" to me. And the shoes don't look very rain-proof. Altogether, a contradictory outfit that brings relaxation & stress, and sunny days & rainy weather, and I'm sure others can think of more.
I do however, find the contradictions of her selection intriguing and like each piece on its own on her.
Its beautiful and yet I don’t like it all at once. I think if the shoes were different, I’d be completely sold. I for one wear little dresses when its very warm and raining; the two do go together sometimes.
I get the bedsheet comments (for a moment I considered whether she had made the dress out of one) but I still think the line of her body in that dress and the mood the dress evokes are gorgeous.
About the tattoos: I realize some people are very strongly against them, but I would like to make a plea that they don’t say “hate the tats” or similar things, for the simple reason that its like saying, “hate his nose:” it could be surgically changed but it would be painful and expensive, and so it has to be accepted as part of someone’s body and treated accordingly.
“mistakes of a non-native speaker of English” Well I guess most of us are non-native spakers of English. ThatÂ´s why our use of the Englih language has similarities ! VoilaÂ´! However the language of style is universal even if diversified.
this outfit is incredibly sexy…someone mentioned flat shoes on women- i myself almost never wear heels, although they look gorgeous when worn right, in my lifestyle they’re just impractical. i fully agree that flat shoes worn right can look absolutely amazing, sexy, confident, stylish and unaffected. beautiful photo too.
this is stunning and poetic and it all works so beautifully toghether. the colours, the mood, the dress and the footwear, her tattoos, the pose the sky…. lovely and inspiring and yes, i realise have to try to get that acne dress too.
Absolutely stunning. This is my favorite Sartorialist photo, EVER. Completely arresting, stops-you-in-your-tracks, but quietly, hauntingly elegant. Nothing loud or brash. Beautiful beautiful work! Stunning dress – I’m a sucker for stark, all white gowns – and stunning photography. Raves!
