    I love this outfit- the coat is gorgeous and the greyish tights look much better than black

    Love the slight suggestion of vunerability created by the feet pointing fractionally inwards. Nice touch.

    I love her pose, it seems very serene and calm.

    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!

    Wow, never mind her clothes, but there’s a nice calmness to the photo, especially when you enlarge it-something seems very still about it, which I like.

    Shoes belong to someone else; I can’t figure out how somehow so elegant could choise shoes so depressing.

    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?

  32. cassaundra

    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…

    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 rather like the combination of those shoes with her tights — the matching colours elongate her legs. The bareness of the legs also work fantastically with the volume of 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!

    February 5, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
