    This is exquisite. You got the hair, the EARRINGS, and that “beach” bag (sorry, that’s what I’m calling it), thought there’s no beach in Milano. She’s great. Well done!

    this is EXACTLY how I would have styled this outfit. Down to the braid in the hair and the bright blue earrings. Loves.

    Breathtaking. I wouldn’t have thought this dress could look so casual.

    turquoise accents in the summer is always good. This is my favorite, DIY too!

    I love the viibrant turquoise earring paired with the print. Animal-prints are my fave, especially leopard, but I do like the idea of the snake-print too, for a change.

    the earrings look great with the dress she’s wearing, with a skirt they might seem to big

    nice dress!!!

    I love the ear rings. And the bag I think is quite cool as well.

    August 17, 2012 at 10:59 am

    I like her earrings and she is very pretty, but the dress kind of makes her look older than she is. Forget the trend, above the knee, a little tighter at the waist and “bella”.

      August 17, 2012 at 4:29 pm

      Sometimes women just want to be comfortable. Tighter and above the knee is not as comfortable as flowing and loose fitting.

      • jen

        August 19, 2012 at 2:33 pm

        Agree, we cant always be dressing to go to a freakin nightclub. Besides, she doesnt have to try that hard.

    August 17, 2012 at 11:36 am

    The earrings make this eye-catching wonderful outfit; the dress does a lot for this gorgeous model. I would prefer sandals in a hue that match the dress, but what a wonderful image.

    The shiny black sandals and even the braid reinforce the python theme.

    super nice even if i don’t like the earrings

    • lucia

      August 17, 2012 at 12:40 pm

      Me neither! The dress is beautiful, but combined with the sandals, the beach bag and the earrings, it gets too typical. This outfit suits a small town. I would at least change the bag and the earrings, they yell too much! Or if the dress would be shorter this would look better. Its nice but here is something that does not work.

      • Jelena Zunda

        August 17, 2012 at 6:52 pm

        Thank you ladies, that’s my thought exactly. The earrings don’t complement the outfit, at all. I’d do black earrings to continue the colour of the sandals, if at all.

    • YQS

      August 18, 2012 at 2:29 am

      I agree. Something is amiss. The earrings wreak of trying too hard and the bag and the sandals don’t work with the dress.

      …the photo itself is beautiful, but the fashion is lacking. I keep checking the Sartorialist for something elegant, sophisticated, and stylish. Still waiting…

  53. Aska Wolf

    August 17, 2012 at 12:10 pm

    Got the same dress (H&M, last year season) and will hate to say it but I wore it much, much better. She wasn’t risking with this look at all because during all the summer you could see numerous blogs, fashion magazines and pages with almost similar combinations. In my hometown many girls look like this and maybe that’s the reason I’m not thrilled at all

  84. Claire

    August 18, 2012 at 1:30 am

    I am surprised that more people have not recognized the dress as being from H&M last season – it was EVERYWHERE!!

    She wears it well, and makes me wish I’d bought it. Although H&M had brought out so many items in that print, that not matter how much I liked it, it felt like I couldn’t go down the street without seeing someone in some form of that snake print.

  85. Czar

    August 18, 2012 at 2:23 am

    Mama Mia!!!

    Pretty woman. Like the hair and the shoes.

    On the downside, the dress is too long and billowy. Would prefer something shorter and/or more fitted below the waist.

  86. Mira

    She´s so pretty and stylish too. Love the dress

    loverly shot and I like her mental situation :) Very interesting your shot for catch it.
    Right hand a little bit behind the skirt, left hand grabbed her skirt and she gave it a blank stare.
    Even though this photo is a little bit bright, I like it because we can feel that reason.

    I was just wondering…why I can’t find the “bontoni” shoes in your blog :)
    I’m your fan for many years since when I lived in Milan and this comment is my first time.
    Anyway, I always appreciate you and your photo because I can read/feel their soul. Your shot is not just “cool fashion photo” but some significant echo in our mind. Thanks a lot Sartorialist.

    Nothing special about it. In my opinion not even worth posting.. You see at least 10 walking like this down the street on a random tuesday (”At least in London”). Altough like the fact that she keeps it black an doesn’t mis it with brown.
