    Pushing up the bracelet stops it from moving all over her arm. It shows she doesn't let fashion distract her or impede her movements. She seems to live in her clean, sophisticated style.

    Normally I hate it when women where high wastes, except for certain empire waste dresses. But this looks really nice. And let's not forget that she is a total babe.

      Empire waists are disgusting, but higher waists are very nice, although natural waists that hit right at the bellybutton are best.

    OOOH! I absolutelly LOVE HER! It's far mostly the best look I've seen on Sartorialist. yes, for me it is, as it's so elegant and feminine and yet comfortable, suitable for every-day life and rush.

    Does the blouse have sheer sleeves? Wonderful. I love her earrings as well. Anyone can wear a high-waisted skirt with the neutral black and grey combination, but the little details (and her beauty of course!) really make this look like something special.

    Do you know how hard it is these days to find a skirt this length, JUST above the knees–when it clearly is so flattering & sensational, why don't more designers do this instead of the mini–sooooo much more easy going, professional and classy.

    How clever to capture the typical city working girl. I was going to say perfect, but all Aussie business people are just that. She has a look of absolute comfort that wold not change were she on the trading floor, shopping at lunch time, in a bar after work or standing in a crowded commuter train on the way home. Just brilliant.

    Not the best shoes (yoou know that feeling when you think "damn it, I should've worn that other pair". Bet that's what she thinks now). The rest is nice; very standard, almost dated, actually.

    I do not agree with the previous shoe comment. To me it's the shoes that make the look so interesting and 'hers' – a mixture of 80s, 40s and naughties and perfectly her own.

    She looks fabulous, sweet, kind, serious and intelligent – ALL at one, not many know the trick!

    But the shoes are unforgivable, they drag down the entire outfit :(

    If i had seen the picture, cut of under her knees, i would have been desperate to see what kind of shoes she would match this beautiful outfit with – now, im just dissapointed.

    I was recently in Sydney and noticed many women in high waisted pencil skirs and chic blouses. She seems very representative of the young, working woman in the city. What I also noticed, is that no matter the size of the woman, most of them had well fitting clothes. It was very refreshing.
    Love the blouse!

    I'm a little bit confused by this outfit and the comments. Everyone seems to think she is wearing a high-waisted skirt. I think she's wearing a sheath dress, but I can't see how she has the blouse tucked or attached or tied overtop. She looks good but I think largely because of the earrings (lovely!) and bracelet and because she is a pretty woman. Not sure the outfit would show as well in person as in the photo. (And definitely some prettier heels would bump this up a notch.)

    i think this outfit is fantastic. when i think of women's dress suits or even professional clothing, i am filled with dread. most have a boxy nature that i would reject. i am a woman and i want to feel like a woman even if i am in a man's world.

    it hits every note: feminine, comfortable yet professional. as for the talk of her shoes: do we all have to look perfect. this outfit is great and as someone said earlier -what if they are her favorite pair of work heels. shoes are sometimes discontinued…

    is that an Hermes enamel bangle? (one of the wide ones) I have the pink and gold, and I think they made a black and gold as well.
    The gold of the earrings and bangle with the grey and black work well, and are more of a surprise than silver.
    I have my doubts about the shoes as well!

    i think her outfit is nothing too special, it is what you see alot of in cbd melbourne, sure the bangle and earing add a little something extra and it is a well fitted outfit but i dont think the clothes themselves are amazing. but i dont think The Sartorialist is about clothes, it is about style, and she has plenty of that. it is the air of grace she has and the way her hair is so perfectly imperfect. you can not buy style.

    I too think it's a very typical look for Sydney and therefore ho-hum. What brings her up a notch is a very pretty face, framed by soft hair and lovely earrings. I think too, that you can tell a lot about a woman by her shoes…and in this case her bracelet and those 2 little rings on her fingers.

I love how she looks like she works for a fashion magazine. Just because she's a stockbroker doesn't mean she can't have STYLE.

    Actually quite surprised to see this posted.

    She is very pretty and looks nice, but nothing fashion-forward or partcularly interesting about the look. There are hundreds of girls like this in the Sydney CBD daily (which I guess is a compliment to Sydney generally…)

    If I say this is full of curves, it sounds voluptuous which this is not. The straight seam down the thigh and the horizontal of the hem are contrasted to the curves of her hip, leg, waistband, sleeves, cheekbones, earrings, hair and even the way the shoe wraps her foot. I need to get back to work.

    Her outfit really works for me. I love the colour combination here: very professional, and understated. Viewers are drawn to her beautiful face, eyes, chestnut hair (the colour of fine whiskey), earrings, and bangle.

    I work in the same industry, and I can tell you that she looks better than 99% of the stockbrokers in my office.

    gorgeous girl and nice outfit, but it's too cookie cutter. there's nothing shocking in how she's dressed. ideally, professional women would dress like her and look like her. i don't know why this is on here. this is entirely expected and predictable. i thought this blog's for unexpected, extraordinary things.

    an attractive stockbroker who dresses well is nothing mind-blowing. she's not breaking any fashion barriers.

    Like a few others have, I've noticed a remarkable similarity to the girl in the prior photo and can't get passed the thought: is she or isn't she (the same woman)??

    I love the pussy bow blouse and the puffy short sleeve, and the slightly 'oriental' touch with the earrings and bracelet. The shoes are excellent – she can walk in them, fast paced if necessary, they're elegant while conservative (perfect for her workplace) and have a nice eighties feel to them. If this is her warm weather work attire, I say brava. It can hardly be improved upon.

    But Scott tell us please: is she or isn't she?

    I don't think those who are confused about this post fully understand the Sart's approach to selecting his subjects…

    He's stated many times in interviews that his images aren't there to depict latest trends, or huge fashion statements, or the 'beautiful people', but simply to capture a look that the particular person is doing 'really well'. Outfits or styles that are well put together, whether they're boundary pushing or quietly chic. I love that about this blog.

    This partcular image fits in perfectly as it fits the criteria: this young lady is doing the classy-corporate-woman-thing REALLY well. Although, yes, many people pull this look off every day, there are many who do not, and this image can be an inspiration to those who see their corporate position as a style black hole.

    An another note, it was a joy to meet you last night at GPO Scott, you are a true gentleman! So friendly and polite, you made waiting in line very worthwhile. I hope you enjoy your time in Melbourne!

    Re: some of the shoe comments… As an american who's lived in Australia before… Shoes are very expensive there. They don't have the wide range of quality & range of pricepoints like we do in the States… At least not when i lived there and worked in fashion/ retail. An average price for a pair of shoes was about $149-179. Taking into account the exchange rate, of course, but still.

    10/10 from me! Love her shoes and she could wear round toe, mary janes, nudes, tan, slings from kitten height to high if she wanted to with this amazingly feminine outfit.
    LOVE BEST the way she's added the exotic style earrings and cuff to the mix. I think her hair and make up are natural yet groomed.

    She's been quite clever with proportions as I think she actually has a long body and short legs but the high waisted straight skirt rebalances.

    Re: post by Georgina Kate about timelessness.
    This photo stopped me in my tracks as I had an identical dress (not skirt and blouse) in about 1959. Mine was ivory and rust, but otherwise exactly the same. I was only about 15, but even teenagers in those days dressed more formally than just about anyone does now.

    I love this outfit, except for the shoes.
    Can't wait to have a job just to wear gorgeous skirts. Too many women always wear the same, ordinary clothes…!

    I love what she's wearing!
    She looks gorgeous in her high waist skirt
    She is so stylish!
    And I don't see anything wrong about her shoes either
    Her clothes are fabulous and say everything
    There was nothing left to the shoes but to be simple!

    High-waisted pencil skirts are a timeless fashion staple. xoxo

    For the people asking where her outfit is from – Anyone from Australia would know that her outfit is just from Cue. They're experts in making clothes with a corporate yet feminine look.
    Lovely outfit, but so many girls wear this, and it's not exactly original… (at least not in Australia anyway)

    I completely agree with the comments that say AUS have overpriced shoes. Spent a year there myself, and shoes were ridiculous!

    Hey I know her! Don't know why she's listed as a stock broker as opposed to marketing. The thing I dislike about living in Sydney is that it's situated in the Southern hemisphere… this means fashion trends tend trickle down here only when their seasons have already passed in countries in the northern hemisphere (as our weather seasons are opposite to those up north).

    She looks very professional. Very smart cloths. Personally, I don't like the shirt, but it does look great on her.

    The dark colors are very correct on her, especially in her business.

    Great skirt. It makes the outfit, and it would never go out of style. I especially love the high waist. The kitten heels help too.
