    i love her hair, the grey mini, the pumps, the tights, the popped collar of her jacket, but above all, her sweater, which she is wearing almost as a dress, which matches her hair and pulls everything together. she is so cute, too…without make up, she looks about 14.

    True. Adorable she is. Very strange yet very charming mix of sweater, skirt and pumps.

    From the front the shoes look like an amazing pair that I have from Acne jeans. They are from last s/s collection. The material is denim, with geometric heel with grey suede at the bottom. I wonder if these are the same? If so, great taste :-)

    the panel of muted tones (sweater, skirt) framed by black, in turn framed by the wonderful colours and textures of the wet concrete- this photo is so beautiful! what a lucky person. my eye is drawn repeatedly to the line of her ankle and calf against the bright spot on the concrete…

    perfection, the fall shows seem to be going in a superficial direction, but here the fabrics are more natural and soft. Her hair cut is sofisticated yet (paired with her eyerows) seem naturally untamed. Love the sweater (faded dusty rose and black!) and proportions. Also like the grain on the concrete below her, it echoes her refined and natural beauty.

    I love the juxtaposition of her look. The rugged alpaca sweater and oversized men’s jacket against the dainty mini and pumps. Even the angelic shape of her face and softness of her bobbed hair seem to belie the mischievous twinkle in her eye. This girl is a force to be reckoned with I bet!

    The pumps are fantastic and I love the wheat and charcoal combination.

    Of course, I think these proportions really only work on a very thin woman.

    She’s adorable: the kind of ebullient girl you want to spend all day sipping coffee with.

    in a visit to venice a couple of winters ago i likened the experience of walking the narrow streets and the ‘canyon’ formed by the buildings framing the sky above and/or canale and pavement below to a small-scaled version of the same manhattan phenomenon, in this case sky and pavement [especially in the financial district where i used to live]. but a long tangent…

    i love the reflection of sky behind the girls left leg. i miss NYC.

    Oh no. Took a second look at the picture. She has ruined her sweater by pulling out the sleeves and rolling them over the sleeves of her coat. That´s the way with young people. They just don´t care. Wear and throw away. That´s how it seems to me.
