while I wouldn’t be brave enough to take it up a notch as this lady has done, I love the light, slouchy-comfy-chic base of the long cardi and short skirt. I need a top like that! well, need is relative…
Ummmm I don’t know about this. She looks like she is just trying too hard. And there is too much going on, what with those big glasses, the hat, the necklace, the scarf, the undershirt and the double-breasted cardigan. Too much I say. Too much…
Good sandals and bag. The hat and the pose are ridiculous, and the basic clothing is unexceptional and unflattering. She looks like she could be a beautiful woman, but she’s coming off a little too ‘mad woman in the attic’ here.
She is lovely. Your eye is sharp and mature. This is refreshing to see from all the uniformity in the material world. She is playful and doesn’t take herself seriously at all. Seems to be “vogue-ing” for the camera, for us, and for you. I applaud your instinct.
Do you do all your own reading of comments and censoring, as you mention below? I am touched by your heart. xoxox, Lady
though she is one of the few people i’ve ever seen who actually know how to tie an espadrille properly! plus the shade of them blends perfectly with her leg, giving her a longer look, instead of cut-off stumpy as they can be wont to do to a girl. let her just wear the shoes – she’d still be just as perfect! she just knows what she’s doing and she’s got it going *on* !
Sorry Sart if I have offended you. I feel a little misunderstood. I do think she has a lot going on, and (for my own preference) I would have taken both the scarf and the necklace off because she looks a little top heavy right now, and thus she looks like she is trying too hard. And really do think that her personality will shine right through regardless of those ‘extraneous’ items because you did capture a vivacious personality in your photograph. I was merely expressing my opinion and am sorry if I have offended anyone.
about the siongc comment — i read it as saying not that she should remove ALL the elements listed, but only that together, it was a bit much. so, maybe remove a and b, or c and d, but nowhere did the poster state that she should take everything off except her shoes. i think that “too much” is fair criticism, and while i support your right to censor comments (esp about a subject’s weight, etc) i don’t think that one crossed any line . . . ? i think it’s a lovely, stylish look, but i also enjoy reading comments from those who disagree with me, and i hope you’ll continue to post them, within reason. :)
I LOVE IT!!! so quirky yet still cool. the necklace – i don’t understand why don’t people like it? it’s my favorite part. it sets it all off. makes it quirky and funny rather than like she’s trying to be perfect. is it mirrored? it looks like a tag-sale tag to me. i want to make one myself. and the hat… well the hat. what can one say. awesome.
I find reading this range of comments quite funny. Bottom line she’s not wearing anything too fancy – a cardigan, vest, skirt, shoes, scarf, hat, sunnies and necklace. Nome of these pieces are very elaborate in themselves. But lots of people seem annoyed – why? Maybe because she’s striking a provocative pose? Still it is hard to argue that she is anything but a sartorialiste…
She’s the female version of Johnny Depp. The tilted hat reminds me of him. I love the color scheme…the light taupe-ish scarf with the warm hues of her shoes, hat and bag. Lovely. I wish I had the boldness and height to pull that off.
for those who don't know this stylish young woman, I introduce you to the "the glamourai" – she was my first experience with the blog world and I must say, once i went glamourai i could never go back – what I mean, she inspired me to reshop my own closet and inspired me to incorporate glamour into my daily life (which p.s. is teaching and studying law).
pps. thanks sartoralist for your marvelous pictures – ur my second favorite to glamourai's blog.
