Summer Has Arrived In New York, Nolita

(I guess I should clarify – Summer is not this young woman’s name, I meant the season)

    pretty girl, pretty sandals, pretty dress…or is it a nightgown/slip? probably best left for the bedroom, but that’s just my take.

      She is attractive, but isn’t as pretty as she thinks she is. the weird waist is odd, and the whole thing is unfortunate.

    If you have the figure and if it´s warm enough,then why not.A private party or just spending your time on the beach would normally call for this time of dressing.

    Great sandals–an appropriately mild take on the gladiator look–but that dress…oy. I get the effect she’s trying to get, but the handkerchiefy result is more University of Miami c. 2002 than anything else.

    Very pretty, though. And terrific legs.

    Totally non-urban but with the right pair of flip-flops it’d be the perfect beachwear. But if you choose to see the poetic side of it and disregard what you should or shouldn’t wear in the streets, yes, this is a lyric sign of summer bursting into the city.

    A bit bare, but she wears it well and looks comfortable. Pretty sandals; a heel would definitely be too much!

    Gorgeous girl and fantastic legs. That girl could wear my handkerchief and make it look good! I may have to turn up the aircon.

    this young lady works at the Tracy Feith store

    I don’t know if she always dresses this way but to work in that store this is very appropriate

    I love the shoes and short is definetely in this year, but I don’t think it’s a great idea to wear it in the city. I personally wouldn’t like to have men drool all over the place!
    In don’t know in New York but in Italy they’re quite harassing!

    She looks very nice and I love the sandals, but she seems to have forgotten her pants.

    Yeah it’s definitely not a look I would wear in the city, but hell, new york is hot, and this girl as well apparently…
    still love the sandals, but too much of the gladiator look, wouldve chosen different shoes.

    Gorgeous look.

    It defies the structured conventions of urban dressing.

    Manhattan Island summer chic.

    I fear for her lest a strong gust of wind comes along. But it is very pretty and I admire her body confidence.

    Pretty, pretty! If I looked like that, I might dress like that, too. Love the gladiator sandals with this little number. Glad she’s not on a bike, though.

    Lovely dress on a lovely girl, but what is with those sandals? It never fails to amaze me how otherwise tasteful women are convinced every season that it is chic to wear shoes reminiscent of timeless icons of feminine style such as the Wicked Witch of the West, or, in this case, Spartacus.

    Hummm…she pulls the Grecian goddess look together quite stylishly, but is she too close to naked? It’s a fine line…Thoughts?

    grecian meets flapper minidress + chic gladiator sandals,sans makeup or any obvious hair stying = girls that fill the streets of Soho.

    She looks great! The dress is very sweet and she looks so fresh with it. The sandals are very cute! Love them.

    I think that “dress” looks nice on her. How could it not? she has the perfect body, and the right attitude. The sandals are lovely.

    Hm. This outfit on a beach: definitely a yes! This outfit in the city, with white skinny jeans or a short (but long enough to be visible) skirt, also definitely a yes. But like this, it seems just a bit too naked, or shall we say: she looks like she’s forgotten to put on half her clothes… But then, it’s probably just that we aren’t as used to nakedness nowadays as the Romans were at their time.

    one of the thing i love about manhattan is that there i have never notice any rules as to what one wears in the city. people where whatever they damn please and it’s part of what makes nyc special. i think this woman looks great!

    A show-stopper! That body was meant to be shown.

    yea the sandals need to be changed to something that is as feminine as the top.

    brave girl… i’m too much of a coward to show that much skin.

    dresses with that shape are hard to pull off, but she did it very well. it helps that the tie-around gives us an anchor to her figure at her waist. which is actually a very good tip since a lot of times girls forget how big a shapeless dress can make them look.

    Forgive me for what I’m going to say but I don’t like this outfit, it looks like an old clothing that was tried to be transformed into something updated but didn’t quite get there.. she has great gams though..

    Didn’t we go through this debate last Spring with an angelic blonde wearing a VERY short brown number (Mason by Michelle Mason as I recall)?

    Just as tiresome now as then.

    Since when is the convergence of young, beautiful and free a negative?

    Very pretty yet also risky here in NYC. I’ve tried this look and wolves come out of the woodwork (even cops make comments). Maybe she doesn’t mind being the main event when sitting on a subway or walking upstairs.

    I love the combo of those gladiator sandals and the ultra feminine dress. I personally would never wear a thing like that in city (well, actually anywhere), but she can pull it off with style.

    It’s all about contradictions, I like that.

    her sandals look like the sandals in all the european paintings of biblical stories. i’d call them jesus sandals. they were popular in the 1st century i guess? well, that’s what i call bringing it back!

    I would love this with skinny white jeans that were short enough to show those great sandals.

    That ” dress” would be more stylish on a beach and with a bikini below and a drink in a hand.

    Anyway, of course she looks lovely.

    Oh I miss east coast summers, it’s so hot you have the right to walk around nearly naked! I love she is excersizing this right+

    I’m on the wall about this look but I love that she is wearing something different from all the other young chics in NYC.

    I think that the gladiator inspired sandals go very well with the dress, just because of the waist detailing that looks a bit like Grecian draping. It ties the look together without screaming movie-extra-on-the300. Beautiful choices, not to mention intelligent. It’s good to show some leg.
