Don’t know if the accessories are carefully chosen or all she has, but this is a case of one piece making the outfit. For all I know the dress is H&M, the sandals are Payless, the watch is Timex…. but the Vuitton bag makes everything look expensive and well thought out.
For all you know, everything is real and the bag is fake…
“all she has”

That watch is not a Timex, honey. I personally don’t like them, but I love it here. Actually fake simplicity is pretty apt. BTW I am a different person then the “Maria” above. I just happen to agree with the first one.
You have it right, fake simplicity. Carefully chosen accessories that make her look seem effortless but it is far from it. It’s all planned out with great success. This woman is beautiful.
You have it right, fake simplicity. Jennifer Aniston does it all the time. Carefully chosen accessories that make her look seem effortless but it is far from it. It’s all planned out with great success. This woman is beautiful.
Simple, but wonderful! I’m always amazed by how some styles truly match certain people. In those cases, the clothes serve to accentuate, by letting the subject’s personality come through…I think that is what style really is!
I only recently discovered this blog but I’m loving it..weird thing is that the only comment I ever made was today and only because I remembered this woman and now I see that she received exactly the same amount(202) of comments each time, is that a coincidence or what? and now I might have just screwed up that # of comments.
You could post her everyday and I wouldn’t mind one bit.
Love the simplicity of the look but I think this gets disturbed by the LV bag. I would have mixed it with a simple French summer basket but maybe this wouldn’t have caught any attention. http://madrilicious.com
Why do people get so upset about this LV bag? The bag just complements her look, but has nothing to do with the logos, but with the color and style of the bag. If she was carrying a french basket, it would look off.
Everyone doesnÂ´t have to like those LV bags. I don’t really like the LV monogram bags and wouldn’t buy them either. But some people like them and they can buy it if they like. So everyone can have their own opinion!
I’m thinking this girl has to have a jacket or something in her bag…something to cover her up when the weather turns on her like a vengeful boyfriend. No urban hipster travels unprepared for the weather. At least if you use public transportation daily.
Its a freaking heat wave. No one has needed a jacket for three months in the entire USA. Where have you been? The only place you ever need a jacket would be inside an air conditioned bar or something. I doubt all the people out there wearing shorts and such are bringing their coats along.
She looks so confident. Her dress is so tight, it’s almost like a second skin. It seems like the statement she’s trying to make is that she’s comfortable in her own skin. I also really like her over sized bag.
WOW! So simple and beautiful. I have to comment about her hair or lack of hair. Her short hair lets her beauty shine through and exudes confidence. From one black woman to another, I think this is really inspiring. Maybe my short afro should go even shorter!?!?
. OKAY.. she is absolutely GORGEOUS. Her face, , the color and fit of the dress, the sandals. the eyebrows.. are great. Her position in the shot is great.. love how the trees and the building seem to narrow. Summer time stay a while longer….
Come on! You can barely notice the logo! The color of this bag makes it not as showy as other bags. Also, this bag color and style just happens to match her minimalist, monochromatic look. I understand that logo all over the place is kind of showy and silly, but in this case, I think this specific LV bag is elegant enough to not pass as showy nor obnoxious.
You know, I get what you mean, but I disagree when it comes to this bag. There’s tons on LV bags that look ugly/tacky/silly, but this one happens to look good and understated. This one has a great basic shape and I really like the color. It is played out, since this is the most classic style by LV, but I really think the Neverfull on classic monogram is the best and few styles that are usable from LV collection.
I don’t like logo bags either. I DO understand and acknowledge the quality in these bags and why people love using them … but I feel ridiculous spending that kind of money on a bag AND advertizing for them, too.
Having said all this, I someday wish to own a pair of Louboutins. The red sole is sexy. It will give away the label of the shoe – but at least there’s no obvious logo.
She definitely knows how to work her figure. The dress accentuates her good points, and the nude toned sandals elongate her legs. Smart, comfortable and well thought out. I still don’t like those bags. It helps to see her first photo for reference. I like seeing the same people so you can see their overall style.
Love her style! She does look great! I can’t believe she’s pulling off a dress like this. It seems as it is one of those slippers to use under a sheer dress! She does look great, though! Perfect outfit!
Everything is sexy here – the simple dress, her slammin’ bod, the bag and shoe – a lot of the neutral colour palette used well here … I think it’s her use of colour and understanding what dress works on her body that’s impressive. As otherwise, I don’t see anything particularly special about this ensemble. I am just dying to throw a bright teal statement necklace around her neck!
I see she’s sporting a shorter hairstyle than she did in the earlier post of June 6 & still looks great!
Ok, I’m a fan!
Now I need details about her:
Is she a model?
In the fashion business?
This woman is the definition of sex appeal, she’s so seductive. She hasnt said a word but i can tell everything she does and says is sexy. Now that my friend is what a real woman looks like. Nice job capturing it Scott!
She is very beautiful and elegant. I love everything except the Louis Vuitton bag. I think logo bags and most â€śitâ€ť bags drain the uniqueness and character out of an outfit. Better some fabulous no name bag, that one just picks up along the wayâ€¦…
Beautiful. You captured her so well. She seems strong and determined and a little bit sassy! I love her classic look too. She’s a very good example of someone who is very beautiful and who only becomes less beautiful the more make-up etc she wears. Why complicate perfection!
A woman like this doesn’t need accessive makeup or assessories. She doesn’t need loud printed clothes or anything that causes attention. Hell, she doesnt even need hair. Scott chose her because he saw that not once but twice (6/6). I love this model. She defines class and beauty.
When I saw this picture, my first thought was an interjection “wow” – she looks incredible! It is a paradox, but her image is simply and stunning. She mix the feminine perfect body with the masculine great haircut! Her simply look is completed by the elegant LV bag. She inspires me a lot of Sensuality!
This is not about the clothes, it’s about everything that came before the clothes, every other decision she’s made about who she is. The air is thin these days with the sticky, high temperatures; this photo didn’t help. Very nice.
It is funny you should mention buying something you couldn’t live without. Haven’t
we all done it? Let me count the ways. I was living in Southampton, NY and I had
to have this “Double Breasted Red Silk/Linen Blazer”. I could just picture it with a
pair of white trousers or jeans and a complementary go along shirt, maybe even a
band collared piece. I could envision the jacket at a gallery opening, lavish
cocktail party or party on the beach. Alas, I never wore it that summer or the next
and than I found myself moving to Aspen, CO. This is one destination that one
never wears that caliber of jacket in the summer. I have still have it and probably will
never get rid of it or better still never wear it. Thank you for bringing up this wonderful
subject we all hate to talk about.
Understated and impeccable style with an undertone of fierce individualism.
Only negative is the rather obvious ‘everybody has/wants one’ LV bag – all considered she still resolutely rocks ‘it’ !
This pic really has it all:
Perfect focus, lighting and composition,
and the subject herself, displays, and displays completely naturally: strength, pride, vulnerability, sass, sweetness, sexiness and just a hint of shyness……..an outstanding photograph….very well done !!
