Oh, what a great set up for this picture! The first thing I noticed was her pearl lariat, an old-fashioned accessory in this modern mix. I bet she is cool in that dress and Florence can be boiling in the summer but she better watch that open bag; pickpockets are rampant there. That's not a slap, it's the truth.
If only every high school girl that you saw..all dressed elegantly like this girl! of course..if that did happen then we probably wouldn't marvel at this picture but it would still be a good change! Me being in high school and having to see all the girls wear the same Hollister brand stuff is annoying when I really think of it. So to see this picture…it brightens my day up! check my fashion blog! http://thetrendydwarf.blogspot.com/
This is a gorgeous shot and the girl looks fabulous. It's relaxed, she's relaxed, which creates the same feeling in the viewer. A wonderful antidote to the uptight looks of the governor's island shots (not a criticism of the photos themselves, which are lovely, just on the looks. Glad they've gone for another year. (I can see it's a fun weekend for the participants – something beautifully communicated by the images – but I find the looks really appalling, esp. the two-tone shoes!)
How, HOW, did you find this girl in THAT piazza, Sig. Sartorialist? When I was there it was overrun by Anglophone tourists. Did they all eat too-early dinners and go back to their hotels? (This looks like it was taken around 20:30, no?)
So many young girls think that they will look older if they dress like Britney Spears or Lindsey Lohan, i.e., trashy/slutty. This girl shows that she can dress simply, comfortably and with class, making her look much older and more sophisticated without looking like a tramp. Bravo to her. The only thing is that she is setting herself up for foot problems later in life if she wears shoes like that too often. It is not very fashionable to limp because of a bunion.
Lovely young women in a dress that I wish I owned. Like her style, accessories, hair, and even the shoes (I'm no big fan of high heels, much less in Firenze, but I'll give in on this one.) Past all that, fabulous photo in elegant light – or elegant photo in fabulous light.
There is something fantastic about those shoes, not to mention the gorgeous background…but really, is all the bashing of high schoolers in general necessary, commenters? We are not all idiots who idolise Lindsay Lohan and would like to audition for a 'Girls Gone Wild' video, even if this is the way teens are depicted by the media.
In the best way possible I happen to think this girl is very high school! She looks like those kinds of girls who would cheat off me in AP Psych hahahah. Styles are changing, and this outfit should be no surprise to anyone 18 and under. She seems confident nonetheless!
i am a little surprised by all the comments about "amazing style".. I think she looks great and oozes confidence but this is a very European look, i wore something similar in Dublin yesterday .. it would not be considered high fashion here. (not to take away from the fact that this girl looks great though)
The Dress is from ZARA but the shoes although they look like a pair they have in blue and pink are NOT from ZARA. I think the most interesting thing about ZARA clothes is that a lot of the pieces you have to see them on to really appreciate them. If you have the vision for yourself than you will never leave the store empty handed and unhappy.
