    One word for her – saucy! (And adorable. Two words.)

    Oh my she’s amazing (how come I;m living in Delhi and bever get to see anything like this?)- where did you shoot her anyway, near Delhi University?

    Also, point worth noting: very few girls in Delhi actually wear knee-length (or shorter) skirts- which is why I admire this girl all the more. I can testify to having put all mine away because I got sick of being leered at on the street..

    Work! Those pockets a nice addition to this pouffy skirt. I am not even missing a handbag, here. The fact that she has chosen T-shirt with an iconic logo from, it looks like, ’76 is genius. Those mary-jane flats are cute and practical.

    I am glad to see that you don’t stay always in the same fashion places.

    I love the juxtaposition of the busy, colorful skirt with the black Stones tee. Great contrast! And I love the attitude you can plainly see with just one glance at the picture.

    Your pictures from New Delhi are great and “something new”. Have been staying in Tokyo since ten days- i think you would have lots of material for you blog here :)

    Second, DOn’t mind ToI… tha paper is just a loose paper although it has a readership.
    It just sensationalises stuff.

    I’m loving this New Delhi report. It’s quite different from your usual work and here really….we can see something new, soul…. The Red and Blue photo is your best one ever and the more I look in those eyes the more I understand photography can sometimes go behind appereances.
    Thank you for proving it’s not all about marvellous women in hyppo shoes, huge bag, blackberry on right hand.

    sorry, i hate this outfit. it’s boring and completely unstylish. i love almost everything put up, but i can’t tell you how many times i’ve seen old rock tees paired with skirts and all of a sudden it’s praised as some work of a fashion genius. i don’t get it.

    Don’t really dig the outfit, but love the way she carries it. What a saucy babe.

    Definitely not a fan of this. It’s cute and I love big skirts, but jeez, that shirt is definitely not right with it.

    i absolutely ADORE the skirt!

    personally, i wouldn’t pair it with a vintage concert tee, but props to her for having the guts to experiment.

    The girl is cute and so is the skirt. But I don’t see anything brilliant, unique, or unusual about this outfit. I guess it adds some sort of halo to your outfit simply to be on the Sartorialist…

    Oh my goodness. Are the skirt and shirt METALLIC?? In love with that skirt!

    To anonymous 6:27 pm: Put it in context. That outfit is pretty fresh for America, but in India? Totally unique. It’s almost a comment on what femininity can be in that country.

    Shen’s got some style! I’m in love! From what I hear, she also happens to be a very good designer. I wore one of her dresses once!!! totally gorgeous!

    Shen is the only one who can pull off a rolling stones T-shirt with a skirt like that.

    muah muah muah!

    Huh? The skirt on its own is pretty (though the small photo makes it look like culottes), but matched with the t-shirt? Ugh. Certainly this may be a daring outfit in India, though it’s certainly NOT sartorial in anyway. Hard to imagine this being on the same site as the Grey & Purple, Milan outfit (which is stunning).

    i love the pattern of this skirt.
    its like one of my head scalfs.
    i love the way she has tucked in her shirt.
    the black really goes well.

    This was how I used to dress as a teenager – pull the nearest t-shirt and bottom, be it skirt, culottes, jeans whatever with nary a thought as to how they went together. (Not saying she did that, just saying that that’s what I did to get a similar look). Who would have thunk that it would be on The Sartorialist?

    She looks perfect. Great style. The rocker shirt is absolutely perfect with the big print skirt. How perfectly cool is the outfit, and how perfectly great is her expression. She looks like someone I would love to know.

    People; get a clue. Having style doesn’t mean wearing something that has never been seen before, or is complex and unusual. Having great styli is this picture right here. Doing something that is good, and doing it well. Just because you have seen people wear rock shirts and skirts before doesn’t mean this isn’t a great outfit.

    STONES! It’s cool how she mixed things up with this look – a rock tshirt with a tailored skirt and cute, simple hair and accessories.
