On the Street…. Vintage, Print Dress, New York


I received an email the other day asking if i ever shot petite women. Maybe it is just the angle I shoot from but a lot of the women I shoot are petite. This young lady is about 5’1″ -very petite but the dress doesn’t overwhelm her. She said she was considering taking it in around the bodice but the way it flowed when she walked was so perfect I told her not to touch a stitch.

    lovely girl, lovely dress.

    re: Sart’s comment about height…

    it’s difficult to determine a person’s weight/height from a photograph unless you’ve got a trained eye or a landmark to measure them against. i’ve also heard the camera can add 10-15 lbs., which is kind of scary given the number of waifs in fashion magazines and on TV.

    Oh my, she’s gorgeous. Everything about her is so summer-perfect…the hair, that dress, those sandals, that bag, and – what seems to be – iced coffee.

    Is she really just 5’1″? She doesn’t look it. Just wondering, what height range is considered “petite”?

    I like how the hem is asymmetircal – the back is a bit longer than the front. The print is also very nice.

    I believe petite is considered at or under 5’3″.

    I’ll be the voice of dissent here – the dress looks too big on her. Her idea to tuck it in a bit is a good one.

    the bigness if the point of the dress. if she took it in at the waist, it could be any mama mia dress from H&M.

    She is absolutely gorgeous, which is why she can just get away with the dress being a little big and baggy

    Take the dress in, make it just a little more fitted and figure hugging and you very simply and suddenly have a delicious girl in an outfit that does her beauty full justice

    The bag and sandals are a perfect complement
