I also love your blog! I just recently discovered it and I’ve spent the last couple of days going through your entire archive. All of your photos are so great, some are just so beautiful that I don’t even know how to describe them. Thanks so much for this blog :)
Is it truly this warm and snow-free in New York? It seems strange to imagine in frigid, snow-covered Montreal. It’s funny, but even the sight of her cute shoes gives me hope that maybe I’ll be out of my snow boots soon enough!
love her hair in the classy little bun, love the sunglasses, love the coat, love the skirt, love the stockings… but I can’t stand the shoes! What material are they? They look kinda trash-bag-ish for some reason… :/
lovely lady. can you say “sexy without rubbing it in”? I would probably ask her what’s on her mind. chances are, she would shake me off and walk away but it would be worth the try.
I think this picture is more about mood than about style. the backdrop is fantastic – the meaty nuances of the bricks evoking fire, blood, passion somehow. trouble is, you can’t walk around with a constant brick backdrop can you?
Wow, I love the monochrome opaque tights to booties. What great legs, she’s the type of woman I’d love to date (btw; someone should make a singles site for fashionistas) I think the skirt is too black though, it’s an abrupt transition.
Nice photo, Sart. I really like this look. It accentuates her beautiful legs. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but she sort of reminds me of Audrey Hepburn. Her enormous sunglasses are a ubiquitous accessory for young women here in Southern California, so I’m glad to see someone wearing them in Manhattan. Not a big fan of the enormous sunglasses, though. What colour are her shoes? Pewter?
oh, she looks so sophisticated – although, the shoes and tights seem a bit awkward. i would have liked the tights ..maybe in another color. or perhaps a different color shoe. despite that, she looks just gorgeous.
Sart this is another hit. I love her! sun glasses cover her face but she’s a doll, all about being fragile. Her pose is adorable, this is the kind of look a japanese girl would pull off. I say she wears vintage fur in a very elegant way. She looks like a little figurine on a wonderland window display. Very sweet and sexy…
What a beautiful silhouette and what a beautiful coat! Her pulled back hair and glasses work wonderfully for this streamlined pose. I would like to see the skirt a bit longer but on the whole she looks quite smashing.
Oh, she is sweet…and a little bit edgy too. the coat is very elegant, in a talitha getty sort of way, and the shoes and severe librarian…but the great pins bridge the gap between worlds. and the bun, a much underrated hairstyle, keeps the whole thing looking not-too-busy.
i used to have similar shoes 10 years ago. they’re long gone. they did not flatter my legs (which are thin), and they don’t flatter hers somehow. must be the wedge. i love her face, though, and her demeanor. i want to know her, so i can borrow her coat. :)
Sart, you must remind us when you’re posting on style.com!!!!!! (that woman you shot Sunday with chartreuse ruffle dress under dark black cape-coat is fabulous). I wish the style.com pix could be viewed larger.
Skirt too short? I didn’t know my mother was checking out your blog. I find it interesting that commenters often complain about the very thing that makes a look special. The short skirt with those shoes is great! The look is charming, dressed up, and a little edgy. One of your best pics.
It’s not the shortness of the skirt that bothers me, but the proportion seems off w/the shoes and jacket. Sart has a pic up on Style.com of a girl in a very short brocade skirt w/puffer vest and tough boots, who looks just perfect!
This is perfect… but if it was me I’d skip the shoes and opt for another pair. It’s all beautiful in such a quiet, serene, almost untrendy way. And the colors are perfect for her. The first time I’ve seen a miniskirt worn in such a modest way – and it looks so much better here!
She’s a beautiful woman no doubt, but I guess I am the only one not loving this outfit. First off, there is something about the tights and shoes that seem cheap looking to me, and I am sure they are not! She does have great legs, but somehow the shoes make her calves look less slender than they are. I don’t think they are flattering at all. And while I like the jacket on its own, her top and bottom halves feel disjointed. For some reason, this picture makes me unsettled. She looks like she’s been stood up and her tights and shoes are just awful and her gorgeous gams derserve better.
she is very en pointe. this is the only way to wear booties– with similar colored tights. i love that gray was so big for fall/winter and i too will rock it as long as i can. the collar is awesome; the volume on top is a nice contrast. and then her hair is out of the way to show it all off. perfect.
This is a perfect example of how one creates a personality through clothes, and this is one of the most complex I’ve seen. You’ve got a little audrey, a little edie, a little rockstar…This is a woman struggling between agist expectations and her youthful spirit. Furthermore, the shoes do make her legs look a little too straight…but if they were sexy shoes that kicked up her calves and pumped up the vava-voom, her whole look would immediatly become a trampy joke. No, the shoes protect the look. It’s all very Truman Capote. The man would have a field day analyzing this chick.
All the anonymous comments about the choice of shoes in this picture, makes one wonder about who these anonymous commenters really are, perhaps..but I think the whole look would definitely fall SHORT and not SO by using this method adding classic signature pieces with ssome rebelious pieces into the mix
Yes, a lovely look, and I like the look and proportion of the Dries shoes.
But I think the elegance and balance factor would go *way up* if the skirt was a pencil skirt to the knee. Just obscure the hemline-to-knee-area with anything (even using a finger between your eyes and the screen, and you’ll see how your mind’s-eye wants to see the balance of a knee-length pencil skirt! And suddenly, she’s in the East 60′s, not the West Village!
I LOVE this pic! Was it candid, or did she pose this way? Her outfit speaks chic confidence but her pose is little girlish with a hint of shyness, like waiting for a boy or a friend who is slightly late. I love it.
The shoes are very different, and they help to keep her ankles from looking too thin. The jacket is just amazing too–I like the tights, it’s nice to see heavier legs, instead of stick thin ones, The skirt helps give her legs more shape but I would have added another inch of skirt anyway. the sunglasses are great too—I like how she is standing on this darker bit of sidewalk with the wedge shoes, and the whole photo feels serene. She doesn’t appear cold to me, just lost in thought.
