I’ve seen her picture on Dans Paris AND Facehunter, and also I think on Style Bubble… and it’s easy to see why. I love the way she uses the shoes to set off her hair and at the same time lift the outfit away from being all neutral. And I’d love to have legs like that too, I must admit :)
i’m going to have to disagree with most of the folks here. i think her outfit is cute. i like the shoes a lot (though i think i would have picked purple ones for this particular look myself). but i feel like there is something very self-conscious about this girl. she doesn’t have the same air of owning her style as i get from the rest of your pictures and that makes the look less fabulous to me.
Sorry, mltt. The feet are bugging me too much to not comment. Why do women do that? It’s kind of disturbing –so cartoony little girl. For heaven’s sake stand like a woman! Still, I really like the outfit. The fact the color of the shoes doesnt’ quite go with the color of the the socks is appealing–like she doesn’t give a sh*t.
Cute as a button & with such style. Went back to view the other photos of her & WoW! She will resemble in thought & style those women you photographed in Paris & Milan wearing leopard coats with matching purses…& then some. Bravo!
Yea, I’m so gonna get myself a pair of one of those socks. Grey knee-high socks has got this vintage ‘my grandmother’s’ feel to it but with those shoes. That’s so chic! I can’t believe I gave up one pair of those in Pedder Red!! Argh!

Thanks for that, anon, I agree with you. As I’ve stated in different words before, the toe-in Lolita stuff drives me nuts. Not so much that someone plays with that mode, but that it garners miles of raves. Rolle eyes…
in my humble opinion, this is by far without a doubt, your best picture on this blog. and i say that in a state of being that is so far gone i can actually pay you that kind of complement and believe it will not go to your head.
I absolutely must ask you to post which camera you are using for these wonderful shots. The quality and colours are outstanding, I am assuming it’s a DSLR camera though. Of course, you’re a great photographer lol.
you are great Sart, but your blog is getting so popular, I don t get to read all the comments anymore. On the other side when a topic reallly interests me, there is so many oppinions I can read through! WOW! diviousdiv is absoolutely right, your blog is soooo adictive! And yes, that girl is marvellous!
The girl from Rue Saint Martin again? Definitely worth a return visit.
It always amuses me when your correspondents moralise about cigarettes. Smoking is, after the great cuff/sleeve debate, the biggest cause of contention on your blog. And yet, despite the fact that it aggravates me, at least the cuff/sleeve issue is about clothes. Smoking is an irrelevance. No-one is asking anyone to get close enough to her to suffer the effects of passive smoking.
She looks great. Hope she enjoys every puff, and every other excess/indulgence/impulse she decides to try, just as long as she doesn’t whinge about the consequences later!
I’m amazed by the number of people who feel the need to comment on her cigarette, on both posts in which she is featured. I’m sure this woman, like most smokers and I’m sure most of the people who read this blog, is aware of the unpleasant side effects and health issues related to such a habit. Smoking is, however, still a choice an individual can make for his/herself. Do you all scold strangers you see smoking in the street, too?
Sart, you might be a tad bit partial to GQ. Esquire August 2007 calls the Canon 5D an SLR worth schlepping. A manly prosumer camera. Your shots are awesome, observe the contrast of the green algae in the background of the picture.
While oft repeated remarks re smoking subjects are not very interesting, I can see where the presence of a cigarette is a relevant subject here. For a long time tobacco has served as a fashion media prop as much as hats or gloves. It provides an “attitude”, which is part of a whole look.
That said, yes, she’d be more smokin’ sans cigaret, and less cliche. Though I don’t believe in censorship, I admire fashion or cinema directors who consciously avoid falling back on this effect. It’s time to disconnect sexy/attractive fromm something causing lung disease. Or – more importantly – wrinkles ; )
That was the perfect place to take the photo, as well: the way the moss highlighted the greens in the dress and shoes, and the rusty red on the ground picked up the red in her hair, and the gray of the wall behind her echoed her socks.
We’re both big Sartorialist fans. It’s lovely to think about fashion in the way you inspire it. This is an art form we’re all participating in whether we like it or not, so we may as well step up our games!
