I have noticed a trend of flat comfortable (and v. nice) shoes on your blog recently. This means girls are walking again. It will also mean that shoe stores will take note and there might be more of these kind of shoes available. Here in Toronto, there is hardly any choice and I have longed for some of the shoes I have seen on the blog.
I adore the whole thing, she looks so casual so unpretentious totally natural and beautiful…you just would not see this kind of understated gorgeousness very often in the UK ! they are all togged out to the 9's and miss the point . Lynn xx
I'm so glad to see you feature women embracing solid footing and rejecting those precariously short frocks that needed constant tugging and tending. I loved this look in the 80s–low boots, slouchy socks (remember EG Smiths anyone?) and a shin-lenght pencil skirt. Love the updated look even more. She looks happy, comfortable, empowered and beautiful.
I think this outfit suits the location perfectly; the roughness yet there is a sense of subtle feminity lurking beneath it. Adore the combination of the shoes and skirt,as someone already commented…as well as that fact that the ipone is a bit to modern tech for this outfit…Great Picture-love how you captured her in such a natural and pure light.

So perfect from head to toe…she can pull off the longer skirt-bare legs-clunky boots look because her legs and ankles are so thin. On someone more "in the flesh," it would look dowdy and heavy. Italian men's fashion week opens in Milan, tomorrow…are you coming?
bravo ! a look full of self confidence and a bit of humour. this is really a first class style. because itÂ´s not (only) about fashion but about self expression and personality. please scott, give us more of this ! merci.
I also like skirts even longer than this one–for me, the ideal length would have the hem at the top of the boot–and in an ideal world, I'd declare a moratorium on people under the age of 60 wearing fedoras and homburgs. (Exceptions could be made for true retro devotees, like the cool barber with the excellent mustache.) They've been done to death, and in a case like this, a more rugged & ragged style is often a better choice.
Amazing..her shoes are a most popular trend happening here in Brisbane / Gold Coast Australia, our fashion is close to being similer to Australian, I love the simple look, simple colours, simple outfit and simple hairstyle = amazing.
Ahhh I want those clothes!!! Especially the blouse. I find her hairstyle to be perfect for that outfit. Great style! I wonder how she managed to go without a handbag?? Where are the keys… money… only the cellphone.
Dear Sartorialist. While I find your charming photos of street style enthralling, I would love to have more of a commentary from you on the location, wardrobe, occupation of the model etc to be able to put the image into context. It all ads to the flavour of your blogging experience, which would take more time, but would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards and thanks. Curator.
Love her hat…sooo cool! I came across a hat shop while visiting Milan last weekend and it was amazing, I couldn't stop staring…so many colours and shapes, it was amazing! The hats were called "Borsalino".
our words will never live up to the greatness of fashion, so let us all make our own FASHION statements! haha. but yes, in all seriousness.
and this blog is just great, through these pictures i realized that fashion is so interesting, diverse, prejudice free, and just plain free. it is rarely taken away, but with its subtleties and sometimes blaring statements, fashion is truly glorious in itself.
