how amazing the world we are living now can have such diversity of occupations and people who work in different occupations can have their own sense of styles regardless …. expecially love her half-moon bangle, xx
sart, i wish you would bring back the larger size photos. i want to see the details (something running up the left side of the dress?) of the dress and you just can't do that with this size of photo.
i like the structure of that dress. it appears to be a little wider than i would want to wear, but it looks feminine, chic, elegant and professional. it also is the kind of dress that she can easily take from day to evening. a very practical dress!
loathe… the shapeless dress, the weirdly formal shoes, grandma's bag, the cheapy bangle on her arm, the grimaced expression and the pigeon towed stance (although this broke-down stance isn't unique to her I'm sorry to say).
Scott I am so disappointed in you. You were taken to the pretentious parts of Sydney to take photos of boring looking people and you have not even gone to places like King Street Newtown, where the real people are. Sorry, but the people at Sass & Bide took you to Bondi…TWICE???Puh-lease…. next time take some good advice and you will get much better results…all of these Sydney photos are a bit on the boring side…everyone around the world thinks this is the best we have?? Who else thinks Scott should have checked out King Street? Not just Paddington, Pitt St and Bondi…so touristy….. :( If you indeed went to King St, then I apologise for the ignorance, but I don't think you did…because of who was showing you around…they probably think King St is full of weirdos…
Wow, she looks fantastic! I'm in love with her dress, would be so much fun to wear.
It was great to meet you last night at the GPO – thanks for the photo, book signing and chat! You were even more friendly than I thought would be possible, absolutely lovely! I'll have to get my engineering outfits up to speed after seeing this gorgeous horticulturist.
The shoes and the bracelet..and specially the bracelet.. the shape…. thats a wow…. the dress is simple but fits her perfectly….. the bag is what gets me…… i would have choose a different bigger and more natural material…. then this dress would look fabulous….. the hair could be a little bolder… but…she is awesome… for her job… shes a goddess….
The spectator pumps are killer. I like them with the bare legs, too. The heavy bangle provides a nice new texture to the overall ensemble. This looks like it would be fun to wear, and it's a fun look. I like it.
You should should do a piece on young working women. The last few photos are great and it would be nice to see a collection of young women from around the world and how they are bringing new fashion flavor to business attire. Thank you for sharing you work.
I like those shoes, and I think I like the bag, from what I can see…
The volumeless hair and loose dress don't quite work together, the large bracelet doesn't work for me (no contrast, just two large elements put together). And the aviators don't seem to add anything … I guess that although I really like the individual elements of what she's doing, I'm not struck by the look as a composite.
Other than the interesting bracelet absolutely nothing going on here. Are you people looking at the same photo. Amazing shoes??? Please, at least they aren't UGG's. Hunting must be a bit slim down under.
Oh my god, I am so sorry Scott Schuman for the slim pickings that have been on the Australian streets this past few days. Good Lord, it is embarrassing to be an AU citizen right now, I love you and all you represent, but please go home, I don't want to hurt you anymore.
How does one go about getting into the rooftop gardening world? If I post my contact on needy rooftops across Sydney, will you find me? Please do. I'd love to know your story. so i may borrow it for myself. -a young and budding gardener in Austin, TX :)
Awful, frumpy, shapeless dress, but with good posture she could make it work — i.e. stand up straight and lose the pigeon toes. I totally dig her profession; I wish we could see some of her rooftop gardens!
The silhouette of a dress is not often intended to be traditionally flattering. I believe a woman can be elegantly chic and sexy without her outfit clinging to her every curve. This silhouette, neckline and sleeves are so modern and youthful; and the subtle yet-in-no-way-subdued detailing is excellent.
I kinda believe it that she does. LOVE the shoes. But to be honest, the first thing I noticed, was the dress and the first thought that came to mind was "why is she wearing a garbage bag?" So in that case, I kinda believe that she plants gardens. Sorry if too harsh! But I do she the vision for the outfit. I guess it's like what you say "it's not what you wear, it's how you wear it". (I have that quote as my moto now, by the way! Thanks Scott)
Hey Sart! I like all the Sydney photos in the fun and sun, but its the holidays and I'm homesick and I need to see some of my people on Madison Ave. to know I'm still alive!!! So if you could post some of those, that'd be great :)
sanmiguelense, the reason shoes are better in the northern hemisphere is that the good ones are SO expensive in Australia, something to do with hideous import duties. Gotta disagree with you on this one Scott, I quite like the dress but I think it's a case of nice dress, wrong body.
Am trying to decide is it the angle at which she stands that makes her look like she has bad posture. Dress is cute ,but could look nices if she were to stand straight or Sart shot from a different angle.
shapeless black short shift dresses must be the rage in aus – there's another one in the background. funny how there's an indigenous style – same dress would v. different on each of a nyc or stockholm or paris or london lady. can't pin the difference tho'!
I love how just because it is on the Sartorialist people love it. This woman is wearing what could be considered a faux-leather garbage bag. Just because it is well accessorized and because the woman is attractive and in nice shape doesn't make it acceptable. Trash. Trash!
Scott, sydney fashion is very diverse.. each suburb you visit has its own trend going on.. its a pity you did not visit newtown or the cross, better yet even parts of the trendy inner surburbs.. like strathfield and Homebush areas because i believe alot of trend setters are there..
But anyway beautiful photos.. and next time please diversify when you come to sydney again
Cute shoes, great shades..bracelet is great..but not with that attire. Dress prob looks great with better posture and maybe a little wind for some kind of flattery other than legs. Not my favorite. beautiful girl non-the-less.
