love the black, the navy, the cream. the fishnets. the stance. of all the hermes bags, that one, especially worn shoulder style, does not work with this outfit or her style as it appears to be in this picture.
Stunning! She is beautiful. The wide fishnets particularly caught my eye – they lend a rich pattern to what could be a pretty everyday outfit.
To me, they convey her European milieu – it seems as if very few women here in Mid-western America embrace fishnets as a wearable hoisery outside of costume parties. It’s annoying because they are so feminine.
I love my America, and I love our casual vibe. But sometimes our casual translates to sloppy, and we do it because we’re afraid to look old if we dress like grown-ups. I saw three women the other day on the subway. From the rear I thought they were about 18 or 20, but when they turned around they were all at least 45. The incongruity between their clothes and their faces made them look like hags. They had good shapes, obviously, so if they had been dressed like this woman, they would have looked fab. So I am seeing that dressing like a grown-up is really the way to look smart all the time, the real cool. It’s wonderful to see women who look like women, not trying to be teeny-boppers. This goes for men too. My girlfriends and I are always swooning over some foxy guy who walks by in a suit. 35 year old guys in sneakers, ring collar t-shirts & Dockers? I’m over it. I’m even over it if you’re 25.
This lady is glorious. She’s inspiring me to be less casual, get back to high heels & showing some leg. It looks nice and you know what? Men love it and who am I to not want male attention? It all ends soon enough. And fishnets are going on my shopping list!
Thank you Scott, for this blog, it really encourages me to joie de vivre!
Fantastic!!! If this beautiful woman put her outfit together herself she should seriously consider a career as a stylist. Everything is just so and though she has made some very fashion forward choices she doesn’t appear to be trying too hard.
Have to agree. The sort of woman one wants to be seen with in swanky restaurants and bars. It’s nothing to do with age, I’m not even sure it has to do with sex, it’s just pure chic. Her look is fantastic. Disregard the comment about sex. A stunner no doubt about it.
I am 23 years old. Cannot tell her age but will guess she is my senior; I must say that this is the most attractive woman I have seen in a while. Seriously, just an iconic woman any man of any age will find beautiful.
Sart, I adore you. You are a true gentleman and you really know style. She is magnificiant. I do agree with Girl Spy re: women in their 40s and 50s who have great bodies but dress like teenyboppers here in America. I am in my early 50s and let me tell you, it is damn hard to find clothing out there that allows one to express one’s self without looking like the newly wed or the nearly dead. This woman looks like a strong, classic, elegant, WOMAN. What adds so much to the class of her outfit is her face and her hair. I’ll wager she has none to minimal make-up on and her hair is well taken-care of,but not over-dyed or styled. Not like here in the US where we have to constantly be affirming that we have breasts or ass to others, that our femaleness is hooked into our feritility and youth,not our age and experience and confidence. She affirms her femininity to herself, and therefore affirms herself to the world. What a relief to see her here. My faith in you is renewed, because you obviously understand real women, unlike most of the US, which is obsessed with fertility, breeding, youth, and NO CHARACTER. Look at her face. THAT IS what makes the outfit…not the other way around. Bravo, Bravo BRAVO. xoxoxoxoxoxo, Sart, from a sexy, confident, strong 50+ real woman.
unfortunately, this problem of people dressing in a slack street style is prevalent in australia too, especially men who wear tight coloured tshirts, dirty sneakers, and hoodies well into their 30s, before giving in to bland chinos and polos in their 40s and on. it’s a pity that we’ve followed the american route rather than the european one (though it’s no suprising given omnipotent US culture). we having also followed that other american trend of getting fatter, which of course does neither health nor fashion any good.
