I’m not sure what I’m supposed to love fashion-wise about this picture. That’s a sack of a dress doing nothing for her. The shoes are nothing to speak of. Is is the print? She is pretty, but I don’t get what’s interesting or attractive about the clothes.
here’s a thought – flattering is subjective. the color is gorgeous on her, the hair is so beautifully down yet back (people always get haircuts these days, never bothering with hairstyles!), and that dress, the length, the material, it flatters her very much. does everything have to be cinched and pinched and cut low to flatter? for all we know, she has a wide wide waist, in which case isn’t this the smartest sartorial choice she could make anyway? i think she looks wonderful.
There are so many wonderful things about this shot. But what is especially appealing is not only the diversity of the subjects, but also the opposite hair textures. The smooth and sleek on her and the big and curly on the kid.
the first thing that jumped out at me was the mama vs. baby hair, loooove it! Then the color of the baby blanket just POPS against the navy of the stroller. I also love the little splash of red off of the top of the cup. Is that a McDoo’s iced coffee? LOL!
aww I love this shot. Contrasting cultures, patterns and textures… similar expression shared by mom and child. Sart. this put a smile on my face. Continue to shoot the interesting and unique. I agree it doesn’t always need to be about the clothes.
This is your first, I believe, photo of a woman with child in tow. I applaud, I applaud. For, i am a woman with three children in tow and isn’t that the greatest fashion feat of all?–to be such a woman “en vogue”? I make a motion that a series of such women should be done.
I actually passed this woman while she was wearing this dress! I had thought about how fabulous she looked with her kid in tow that Sunday afternoon. How exciting to see something on here that you had seen in real life and thought was wonderful.
Er, there is nothing wrong with calling someone a caregiver. It is in fact wonderfully evocative and polite. We don’t know if this woman is a mother or a nanny or an aunt or what. Caregiver is the correct term to use and it certainly isn’t a non-positive thing to say.
My favorite Sartorialist picture so far. What is so appealing is a beauty that is almost incidental. Not a contrast in hair texture or ethnicities, the world is a big place with alot of different people in it.
