    I used to work in Via Senato! Great area to work in Milan not far from Galleria VE and Duomo. The girl is lovely, her dress is superb tech-romantic. For the shoes I would go for something more elegant perhaps ballerinas…

    Lovely photograph! The smoke and out of focus background blends with the ambiguity of the see-through dress. I'm not sure if I like the brown bag here, but I am lost in her smoky eyes so it really doesn't matter.

    to me she just looks very elegant, sophisticated and chic. love the dress and the contrast/combination of the shoes+socks and the dress. love the fact the dress is buttoned up, it gives it a masculine touch and the black socks and brogues complete the look!
    in my view, it's a perfect outfit.

    She looks gorgeous, but I can't help but feel disheartened that every woman pictured on this site only fits one certain body type.

    Are model-skinny girls the only ones with the fashion sense?

    Cool dress. It reminds me of the shirtwaists my mom used to wear.

    She is such an interesting combo of wicked-pretty, and buttoned-up schoolgirl. Inspiring look. And I'm beginning to love the return of the waist.

    Great style. I'm impressed by her overall look and especially her shoes and socks, which are somehow perfect. And her bag. She gives the impression of having taste, but not caring so much to impress us.

    By the way, did you notice the building she is standing next to? Homely at first glance, it has some interesting details, such as the pink granite surface and rounded window opening. In the lobby there are ceramic door handles shaped like weird seahorses. If you look at the building from across the street, behind the glass above the doors (and in between the advertisements) is an abstract art work. It's by Lucio Fontana, the artist who used neon lights and wrote a theory of television. You can barely see it because of the reflections–sort of like the model's transparent dress.

    Ah, Milan! Thank you, Sartorialist.

    Great pic and effect with the smoke, the smokey colors and fabric and her smokey eyes. Interesting individual pieces-dress, shoes, bag. But the outfit overall isn't working for me. Maybe it's the shoes. They may be comfortable but they just don't go with the shirtwaist. And no, I'm NOT suggesting high heels.

    Aw, I shouldn't be looking at this shot. It's very dangerous for me.

    I'm trying to quit for a while and this kind of wonderful image makes me go 'oh, whatever, it's still stylish' again.

    But the cure is thinking she'd be just as stylish without the sig. Which is true.

    I knew scrolling down the pic that she'd be wearing male flats with socks. It's the right way to go with the dress.

    it's not just the sheer dress, it's the importance of the slip underneath. a beautiful slip is hard to find. the 50s hard polyester cannot be destroyed but also, unattractive. this slip is none of that. please can fashion houses bring back the fundamentals of lingeries as something more than just sex-clothes?

    i think it's a shame so many people think that smoking is a "stylish" thing to do. i'm wondering if you consider this as well, seeing the number of pictures you take of people with cigarettes. i think smoking is disgusting. and i think those who think that smoking is chic is absolutely fooling themselves. you don't necessarily have the responsibility of promoting any sort of moral values through your blog, but i think it's quite hard to ignore those several people who commented above that looking at your pictures make them want to smoke (again.)
