i like to see these types of extreme shoes in magazines, for fashion fantasy, but i feel bad for people who wear such costume-y extreme pieces in real life. i don’t myself dress bland by any measure, but those shoes are dangerous and damaging to the body. it’s foolish. i prefer looking at street style where the person can actually walk a block in their clothes, live in their clothes. that’s where this site is such a relief from magazines, because you show things that people live in, but when you target the “fashion crowd,” the professionals, who pose, for you and everyone else, in their get-ups, who have to and can ride cabs everywhere, then it’s just like a magazine again, instead of independent style and beauty.
Very nice photo, Scott. I love the contrast here among red purse, black outfit, lipstick. This is a wonderful look, though an unexceptional one, IMO. Black is ubiquitous amongst sophisticated young women from Tokyo to Santiago, New York to Paris. These young women are certainly very beautiful. But for me, this photo is all about the gorgeous young lady on the left. Scrummy! Just lovely.
Sart, when are you going to post more Old Man Style photos? I think we’re long overdue. I know I am. Please. I find your recent photos of beautiful women are proving to be a major distraction.
The hair in this shot is amazing, especially on the left. I really wish that big bag wasn’t obscuring half of her outfit, though.
I also love the chunkiness of the shoes paired with the slim fitting tights in both outfits.
I don’t want Sart to EVER stop shooting the gorgeous and insensible five inch heels he always captures on the street, though I do admit that as a college student who spends over half an hour heading to and from class daily (UF has an awfully large campus), every shot with an awesome pair of towering heels makes me radiate envy.
while i love to see these type of shots and the very high-end fashion that they incorporate, what drew me to this blog a year ago was the way you captured the “every day sartorialists.”
i realize that fashion week just recently passed, but when the majority of your pictures are at or center around the people who attend anything related to fashion week, well of course they’re going to look good! it’s their job to do so!
as an average, non-wealthy person who works in IT and loves fashion, i can look at these people and their clothes with envy and respect, but not reality. it’s to be expected of these individuals; it’s the unexpected that have the most impact and influence.
i miss seeing more of your non-model/non-fashion people posts…those are truly the most inspiring and real, to me.
I must say that as fashionable as the two women in this picture look, the picture itself does not touch me nearly as much as some of your shots on people who do not follow any trends but have a style of their own. When all that is pulled together; shiny shoes and skirts, bags still stiff in their newness, all so grand and brand-new that I can right away point who designed them and how much they cost, not much else is left to see, I think. It is far more intriguing not to have a clue where the person in the picture has found the elements of his or her outfit. In the most memorable pictures of yours the details donÂ´t even matter to me, it is something else that you have captured.
Although, at first, all I thought was: Wow! I want that Kane skirt! However, on second looking, I actually much prefer the outfit on the left (the taller woman). The look is much more subtle, much more sophisticated and fits her figure much better. It’s not as ‘trendy’ and this is a good thing! Great pic, Sart!
thao? are you kidding? a. walking in “regular” stilettos is not recommended by a single podiatrist walking this planet, and b. a stiletto height on top of a platform does not increase stability, it greatly reduces it – just ask ms. roitfeld, she of the wrist in a sling, albeit a silk scarf of a sling, but still.
I love the look, the black and the red and the blond hair…however for each photo you post of daytime high heels, you should have to walk a New York Mile in 4-inchers carrying 10 pounds of metal-bedecked leather bag, and then see how glamorous you think it is. It’s not as if our feet are that different from yours, you know. Yes, heels are sexy, but them the Chinese used to think bound feet were sexy too. Haven’t we learned anything since then?
FASHION VICTIMS!! This is not a becoming proportion on these women. I love the faces of both women, but their outfits feel like they are trying way too hard to be COOL. If it looks like you are trying, by definition you are not cool.
To respond to a comment, stilletos are hard to walk in, but a lot of women in big cities do it. And what I was trying to say is, although the heels may be 4-5 inches, the the angle of your foot is not 5-6 inches from the ground. There is a platform in front, therefore, it’s not as bad as some people are imagining.
For example, the Chloe oxfords are about 4 inches, however, there is a platform in the front, so the rise is probably more like 2-3 inches. Most people say that they’re very comfortable heels because of this.
