This reminds me of one of the outfits that Carrie wore in Sex in the City. If I remember correctly it became big for a while after that. I always thought that it looked like your wearing your boyfriends shirt home after spending the night…However, in this picture, she`s certainly rocking it out with the pick and black accents!
Yes BMommy!!! It is very “Carrie leaving Big’s apartment on the Walk of Shame wearing only his pressed shirt” minus the Hermes H Belt, of course. I like the little red heart on her purse. Jorge from W Palm Beach
kitchenlogic2point0 – if that’s the case i ope she’s on her way home to find some capri’s or a cute skirt… While i love the pink and black (the pink is just deep enough) i feel this is not a look for the City. She needs to be in Malibu or East Hampton (or may be someone will tell me i need to be in the 19th century?)
I don’t know…to me, there are “shirt-dresses” and “shirts worn as dresses”…this falls into the latter category…and just looks like she forgot to put on pants. She does have great legs…I think she’d look fabulous in an actual dress.
Gorgeous. And her legs look THAT good in flats!! Perfect sandals, from the front you think they’re going to be heels, and I think thats a very elegant look and doesn’t do one thing to dress the look down, but rather up.
Isn’t the shirt silk? I think its definitely a woman’s shirt/shirt dress/tunic?
I think she’s done very well–its perfect. I especially love the light material, short length, and light color, with dark accents–hello fall transition.
Her name is Kate S. Won’t say more as I don’t know if people want their names out there although in her business I imagine she would- branding, styling, events, etc. I do think she looks very cute- lovely legs- although I hope she has some good coverage underneath.
I think her confidence and her fabulous legs and toes pull the look off… except for her hair. I think pulling it back in a chignon would have made it look less morning after-ish. Maybe some red on the lips??
This is a lovely carefree look. She looks like Mariel Hemingway. And the flat sandals are really wonderful too. Heels would have pushed the look over the edge. The look fits Manhattan and would transfer perfectly to Santa Monica.
no … not to be a hater but i dont think this shirt+belt is really appropriate (read: “classy”) … maybe on beach, but she needs some short shorts or some pants. yes, great legs but dont give away the farm, girl!
Beautiful concept that in my opinion gets lost in the details. Carrie’s outfit worked because of her gorgeous full hair and a structured belt. If she’d put her hair in a loose chignon and made the tie into a bow I think this look would work so much better.
I don’t think it looks like she forgot the pants at all. If you look at the length, its a mini in the front, but almost mid thigh, and easily mid thigh in the back. It had to have been cut with more coverage in back.
The slit doesn’t go up that high. The billowy shape offsets the length, as do the long sleeves.
Sure, it would look fine with pants, but not in warm weather.
I think its clearly a dress, its just an edgy take on the length.
I admire her confidence, but something about the proportion looks wrong to me. There’s too much fabric gathered around the waist for it to be a proper dress, and the length looks off for it to be a shirt.
The look is so poignant. I love the oversized boyfriend t-shirt as I read some would refer it as. The choice of color is perfect, I couldn’t see it any other color. I love how she uses something like a scarf, to construct a fashionable look not making it at all appear risque. I like the studded sandals she’s wearing and the leather bag she’s carrying, it just compliments her style even more. Glam on, girl! ^^
I love the humor and concept of the outfit, but not so much the execution. The shirt is a bit too bunchy in the waist and belly perhaps if the tie/belt were higher(?)Regardless, fun, innocent, and sexy.
This is a great BEACH look, but a bit too spare for in-town, it looks like she forgot to get finished dressing. Her finger- and toenails are two different colors–don’t most women have them in one color? Do tell…
I love the look but I’d also love a pair of short shorts underneath the shirt. I don’t think it would kill the look, but it would make the shirt / tie belt combo very obviously a conscious decision, and not so ‘walk of shame’ish. Would also kill for her legs!
I was just looking through your fashion week photos on style.com. I love the tennis dress and biker jacket combo worn by the young blonde lady in Bryant Park (Sunday photo #3). She looks fantastic. Great shot.
im taking a wild stab in the dark that her name is kate sweb as if u attempt to save the image that is the name sart has given the image… i think she looks nice but nothing to write home (london) about
I think this woman looks amazing. From the outfit to her smile, this is a girl I would want to know. The look says “I’m confident”, yet I don’t get any sort of snobby attitude from her at all. Creative and chic – I love this.
I doubt Kate Schelter cares as to whether someone says her name on a blog, given her high visibility in NY social diary, patrick mcmullan photos, etc. her bag is Tod’s in case anyone is wondering…overall a cute look.
kate shelter rocks in this outfit. love that she is standing on tiptoes, makes the outfit look even more airy and weightless. she is clearly comfortable in her own skin and that is when a woman is always sexy and beautiful.
I see what Sart means about “inspiration shots” here because I don’t like the execution of this look at all (the lack of pants is mystifying), but I like the loose and baggy shirt, the way the sleeves puff, the wrinkles in the fabric, the sandals, and the colors.
This is one of my favourite looks on the blog for the longest time!
Her legs looks insanely long, beautiful sandals and for those saying that she needs to be wearing something underneath, whatever the hell for?! In case the wiond blows? C’mon. She looks classy and at complete ease with herself. Beautiful Kate, take it from a not-so-easily impressed eye, you look freaking fantastic!
The shirt is not very flattering. It just looks inappropriate for just about everything except hanging out at the beach with a bikini on underneath, or when you wake up at your man’s house and grab something from his closet to walk around in.
I guess she had to stand on her tip toes ’cause shoes this flat are not flattering to most legs unless they are a mile long.
i’m absolutely obsessed with the sandals, but–as others have mentioned–i don’t really dig the shirtdress given the context. sure, come here to napa in the ninety-degree heat and let’s lounge at the meadowwood pool. but here i think she looks uncomfortably, almost awkwardly, underdressed. props on being a babe though.
I love the pink shirt and the flat sandals. However, I would be very uncomfortable walking around the city streets in this outfit. One gust of wind and you’ve got serious worries. Perfect for the beach, or a coverup for a poolside restaurant.
All these comments about whether or not this is appropriate are kind of ridiculous. I thought we left the term “fashion police” back in high school. Remember the Prada collection a few seasons back? Bottoms don’t always fit what you had in mind.
Bravo to Kate for taking advantage of her good looks. She looks like she’s having a great time too.
It looks as if the shirt’s fabric feels as soft as rose petals. I agree about the hair – could have made more effort, especially – rid that middle parting – yik! And.. can anyone say – sex on legs? =) x x x
the shirt is too baggy around the waist – looks as if she had a flabby stomach – , also her shoulders disappear in the material. Could be corrected by arranging the fabric in another way and/or tying the belt/tie a bit higher. great idea though, and this is what fashion is about partly: it’s fun.
Ugh, typical man thing to say. “You don’t agree with something, you must be jealous.” Um, no. Perhaps you would like it if she were walking around naked, but I don’t think it looks finished. She is lovely and has awesome gams, and I WANT the sandals and the bag, but I think this would look better with shorts, with a skirt, or with anything.
Are you all really serious with this “The slit is too high” criticism? Don’t act like you don’t see women showing MUCH more skin that that on the streets of New York, whether it’s day or night. She has great gams and she’s showing it. Does she look trashy? No, she pulls it off with class, so stop sounding so jealous and petty.
I notice a lot of Carrie Bradshaw-comparisons on your blog including several for this picture. I think that Carrie’s wardrobe continues to be appealing to so many women b/c of her character’s witty repartee.
For this woman, if smart things come out of her mouth, I see this outfit working. If “like” comes rolling out every third word, the look diminishes to the Paris-Hilton level.
