Delightful! In reference to “luvsunflowers” at 8:35 AM: I happen to like her “older” hair with her sharp-cut clothes. It softens the look, and makes her open, sweet face very approachable. I abhor the “total” look in fashion (read: “overdone”)– it’s a grand, unexpected touch when something is slightly unpredictable… maybe even slightly askew. In closing, she looks gRRRRReat!!!!
I absolutely love this look! And she is wearing the bag, not the other way around. The black provides the perfect background for a punchy accessory and her overall silhouette is just gorgeous. Think Grace Kelley in one of her classic Hitchcock getups! I want the whole outfit.
oh no, i beg to differ. This outfit is not very Swedish at all!This is something you find among the streets of Rue St Honore in Paris! She looks amazing though.Its hard to pull this shape off, but she had done a good job!
it’s unfortunate the london high street has ruined this jacket-they are producing SO many, most terribly tailored. they aren’t nearly as full or as nice as this one. a lot of this is HER, she’s very elegant, as someone else mentioned her wearing the bag, she’s WEARING the whole look, as opposed to it wearing her. very nice.
Fantastic. What a great balance in proportion, and what’s more-I appreciate the youthfulness about her. Her look is polished and elegant without any note of constraint. I try to go for this as well, at the age of 21.
For the first time in my South African Life – I am looking forward to arriving in Sweden this winter and putting together something great to wear. Please show us more of the European Autum/Winter clothing. Its really really hot here and hard to imagine wearing a coat or winter clothing.
i think she looks wonderful. yes, she does have a little charlotte goldenblatt vibe, but she is much cooler than charlotte — the lines of her jacket are very european, not at all american prep. charlotte would never wear the bag, either — a status bag, yes, this bag, in this color, no — but i have to admit it is my least favorite thing about the look. i simply prefer bags that don’t scream out their names (and price tags). well, except the birkin and the kelly and anything at all by guiliana di camerino.
I see Charlotte Goldenblatt with the status bag – particularly in season six!
About the bag: normally I would hate a brown-bag with an all-black ensemble. I think the fact that this is tan, rather than chocolate brown, helps it out, and it just makes the outfit “pop”. A black bag would have been so boring and, as someone commented, much less Hitchcock than this.
She just needs her hair in a chignon and a little veil over one eye…
Oh, she’s so cute! I love her outfit. And I, for one, completely understand why you called her a “girl” instead of a woman — she exudes a guilelessness that is so young and fresh. Just thought you should know that not all women are put off by the “girl” word.
By the way, I’m totally intrigued by your popularity in Sweden. Have you tried plugging “Sartorialist” into Google Trends, which charts the popularity of particular web searches. Your biggest audience appears to be in Sweden!! Who would have known!
I’m from L.A. but am in NY on business — your blog inspired me to stay an extra day and roam the streets in order to people-watch. Love the NY street shots even more than the fantastic European shows!!
i love it – looks quite giambattista valli to me (but it’s not)…
and while i like the idea of the punchy tan bag on black, i can’t help feeling that the slouchy-ness of the paddington bag doesn’t really work with the tailoring of her jacket + pencil skirt combo. i’d rather see an oversized envelope-shaped clutch or something like that, imo.
lovely look though, one of my favourites up with the woman in vintage valentino.
