The woman has funky shoes but goes well with the dress. My friend recommended this site http://www.makemechic.com and found cheap dresses and women's shoes that fashion lovers like me with a budget can splurge on.
I love the oversize sunglasses on her face – though they are in the Wayfarer shape which is terribly over-saturated, it certainly manages to look good while ballooning the shape and trend to satirical proportions. The pants on the man in the back fit superbly and the show of ankle with the sock-less loafers is classic – what makes it work though is the fit of those pants. Well played on his part.
The brown, yellow and hint of camel in the cape is really fantastic. It's great on her, and a great, unexpected color combination. The pieces are beautiful together too. While they are loose and flowing, her body is still giving off a sensual, sexy feeling.
Love the gold and brown contrast. Very impressed when people know how to dress when the calendar says one thing and mother nature says another. I have those shades. Mine are green and I won them at the state fair. My giant teddy bear I won the year before is wearing them.
Here we can see what happens, if you are wearing fancy shades that donÂ´t work with the shape of your face in ANY way… didnÂ´t she look into a mirror when she bought these? The rest of her outfit is great, indeed!
My absolute favorite of your photos (perhaps only following your various "old man style" snaps)! The outfits are amazing, but I just love the movement, the way you captured them, the way they're holding their papers. wow.
love the candid pics…clothes in motion…they do cover our limbs and limbs are rarely still…you seem to have caught this cape in its original purpose, it was designed to move flowingly… standing still nice pic, but not as nice…great job when are you in chicago
Also, liked your book very much… happy to see that you included the photo from way back in the beginning of the woman in Paris who made a coat out of a robe. It is ever so colorful and one that I will never forget.
This is my favorite post in a while. The movement; the texture; the youthful playfulness of it all. I love it. Its very inspiring. I like their super chic combined with slightly quirky. And I like their attitudes, evident in their posture and smiles.
I agree with an earlier comment – something about this girl just … bothers me. I think it's that I associate youth with a sense of fun and experimentation, of testing the limits – of fashion risk … here, I see a young girl looking like a 38 year old fashion editor. Wearing last season's clothes, like a little girl playing dress up with the things Mommy has let her have because she's not going to be wearing them anymore. Not necessarily a bad thing, but where's the fun and freedom? – well, actually, that DOES sound fun and free! She's just SO on point. All the way to the set of her chin and her cigarette held just right. I know the sartorialist always has a REASON for shooting which is not always obvious to me, so I'm going to assume that what he wanted to capture is the beauty of a girl 'trying on an outfit', and doing it with such panache. I don't see that she 'owns it' yet, but I'm seeing a wonderful sense of playfulness suddenly – the oversized glasses, the cape that swallows her yet moves nicely with the wind, the winsome 'little girl' hair-do…
okay she doesn't bother me anymore. I love her…
Thanks to The Sartorialist for sparking thought and photographic/fashion discourse!
