Brown & black + purple : a very modern colour palette. There is something interesting about the "oversized" silhouette (shoulders too wide, long jersey, long sleeves with hands half hidden) in that it remains a thin, vertical silhouette: over-sizing often gives a large silhouette (almost by definition).
The shoes look like a higher version of the large ankles shoes which have been popular for quite sometime.
The hat makes the "look" and the scarf pulls the colors together. Love the bare legs (it's a European thing that I do too). Oh yes, I DID notice how her scarf color matches the trim on the vehicle behind her….so you so nuanced. Another great photo.
the subtle peep of scultped calf and the feminine slouch boots combined with the warm over-sized sweater are great contrasts that complement one another well. also love the proportion of the boots with the skirt length.
Sophia hated waiting. Today especially,she was chilly; even though she had a thick sweater from her boyfriend's closet, it wasn't quite enough to keep her warm. Plus, it never occured to her wear boots with tights… and the hat, not for warmth, but for fashion.
i just love your street photography of beautiful people. i am new to your blog and have only found you a couple of weeks ago, and after reading your bio i am smiling that you are/were a Hoosier country boy! Blessings to you!
I love pretty much everything abou thtis outfit, except maybe the skirt. There's nothing wrong with the skirt in itself, but with such a big sweater, perhaps something a little more tailored would have worked better. But this does work very nicely, too.
I think the boots are great. I love different kinds of boots; today, I was out looking at boots that aren't snowboots, and everything just seems done to death. but these are fun, beacuse they're all scrunched down.
I wish I could wear a hat like that. Maybe I can. Not really sure… but I really love it on her.
The feeling of her outfit, the look on her face, how she's gazing off out of the frame, almost feels like you could photoshop her into the Australian outback or some adventure movie.
On her toes and in high heeled boots?…Somebody hold me. The way she has folded her arms it looks like that sumptuous sweater is hugging her. With legs like that I'd let her run me down and win every time. Beautiful poise and her focused gaze, I have to know who or what's down that street…
I love a women in an oversized sweater but let's face it, not everyone can pull it off. This beautiful creature illustrates how this look can be successfully worn. And oh, what man can can't appreciate a great pair of legs! So nice, so lovely
I just discovered your lovely blog. I'm just new into blogging & have just finished off my own blog on fashion & interior design. http://scrapbook-melissah.blogspot.com/ I had a lot of fun putting it together maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute. x Melissah
To Marisa: Bare legs are not a European thing. I would say bare legs look vulgar in winter, the colour of the jumper reminds me nasty mud, scarf uninteresting. I clicked on the comments just to view what others think…shocked…:) Anyway, if she puts on different boots, she could easily pass for a potato field worker in Central Europe.
You take great pictures. I'm sure you read that all the time but just thought I'd add to it. Love this one especially. I think it's great how you just go over to peole and take their picture. You are brave. I'd be scared they'd tell me to…you know what!
just to contrast the homogeneous moaning of support, I think you start to lose the mojo here and there in your blog. For example, I struggle with perceiving what's noticeable in the taste combination attitude of the lady here. On the other side too often in your blog the happy few of the fashion world are portrayed (it's a disease, it's called annadellorussitis in its milder form, syndrome of roytfeld-jacobs in the worse one). The authentic inspiration comes from the combination of the street, broadly defined, and authentic, individual taste. Eja, eja, alala". Tano Ermacora
I find the naysayers hilariously snooty. The magic about so many of the people you capture is an insouciant casualness, a person caught not having constructed a look with every element nailed down. That's when I love your site best. I think it is here. She looks like she threw on that sweater to stay warm while waiting for a belated someone loved to arrive (maybe the real owner of that sweater). "Potato farmer", indeed. I bet you might just find a farmer with quite a flair; the Sartorialist finds such all the time…
I love this combination, mostly because I haven't seen it for awhile. The pointy boots, the brown sweater (oversized) and the blue skirt, (daring color combo) make it fresh. But without the scarf tightly woven around her neck and her hat, it would look eastern European potato worker. She takes such ordinary ideas and then twists them all.
Love the boots and the blue/brown combination. You have great fashion picks on this blog. Love the see some jewelry here as well. This is my jewelry website below that I wanted to share: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ACupOfSparkle
Dear model or photographer,
I look so much like this woman that some of my friends swear it’s me, yet it’s not, I would know…
It would be so interesting to know who it is and see if we really look the same of if it’s just in the photo…
Email me if you have the info please!
I believe it’s stylist Margherita Biscaretti di Ruffia,
You can look up at her, there is lots on line.
I see coolness with a personal touch
that is very inspiring in this capture!
Everyone has been looking for this kind of hat this winter,
Please Sart,find us more inspirational moods like this one!
