I can see that this woman has the same issue that I have – the ID badge as a fashion spoiler. You get all dressed, looking good for work, nice dress, good necklace, and then once you get there you’re saddled with the ID badge.
You have to wear it or be carted off by guards in decidedly unfashionable attire, but it it’s always there distracting the eye from the neckline area.
This ensemble look reads a bit Chiswick to me (think Stepford Wife). From the pearls, to the bag, to the shoes. I’m reminded of rocker Shirley Manson from the band Garbage, who many years ago in a video, took an eerily similar red dress, shortened it considerably, and donned black boots. Now that look was ironic and hot. This look is, unfortunately, neither.
The great photographer finally hits London. Soooo looking forward to seeing your shots and off to a good start with the spotty dress. (I see that visiting Spain for Cibeles Fashion week is a no sho. Maybe choosing between individualist London and fashion logo/brand fixationists in Spain is a no brainer ?)
Big dots on a small girl don’t usually work, but this looks beautiful. Perhaps it is the mini mouse factor or the all round costume effect she gives it. I love the attitude. Like she has pinched it from someone else’s’ closet!
Yeah, welcome back! London needs you especially if you manage to find the only sunny quarter today when the rest of the city was drenched in storms. Dress is cute. Next does a great version this season believe it or not. Chcek it out on-line. Just no leggings under skirt shots please. We have our international reputation to uphold! Welcome Sartorialist!
aaarghh…americans…there is no labour day in the UK…and londoners are quirky…all these silly rules you yankees follow…and the ridiculus obsession with painful shoes…here, we like a sense of humour with what we wear..
cute cute! love the shoes with the dress. if she were to wear heels it would all be to obvious and straightforward. by the way, to anonymous, from 10:58 AM: spotted-dress girl is perfectly aligned so that the loudspeakers on the wrought-iron fence in the background only make her LOOK like she’s wearing a gehry-ish hat.
