    Both girls have edgy and interesting look. They both would be more beautiful with a little bit smile, I guess. However, they have a true sense of style. All the londaners have great style or is it you that capture the great style. Well, in both ways or either way, Thanks for the posts.

      Why the heck should they smile? Its super annoying to assume that just because there is a picture, a phony smile must be provided. Do people walk around with a big grin

    that first girl looks trashy…maybe it is the over the shoulder look…

    I love the 1st girls ‘flashdance’ T shirt underneath that bustier dress. The finishing touch is that ankle bootie. It’s all about the ankle bootie this Fall. We sold out of ours already and we have a waiting list for anyone who might just return it. It’s crazy.

    Jeeeeesus! Really too trash for me. Maybe just the black dress on the first picture. But only without that white “what is that?” T-shirt.

    The woman on the bottom pic is fantastic, beautiful. Sart has certainly shown that women in London kick New York to the curb. Was there ever any doubt though?!

    Tough glamour, with matching attitude, at least for Sart. :)

    you saying that it’s black velvet i automatically like the outfits better – because from the pictures it could;ve been anything (wool, jersey)…

    Love these! 80s vibe with personal style and modern attitude added–a departure from the more literal–and less original–mimicking of 80s fashion (see elongated pink sweatshirt dress–ah, but at least she looks genuinely happy).

    What’s with these lanyard ID tags (also see “Red Dot Dress”)? I understand the need for workplace security, but are these girls wearing these clothes to work?

    Love your blog.

    the second woman is GORGEOUS!
    The details, the hair, the skin: beautiful!

    the woman in the second shot — love the white ruffles, the 3/4-length sleeve, the shine on the bag with the mat velvet, and oh, the hair. the first woman, not so much — that ’80s thing again. either it’s tired or i’m just tired of it. but black velvet is a look i would enjoy seeing out and about. re the “london vs. nyc” crack (or anywhere vs. anywhere, for that matter) — let’s not go there because that would just be stupid and so not the point, right?

    i may just need those green shades. and the attitude.

    The girl with the georgeous hair looks like the model Chanel Iman, doesn`t she?

    ehh— sorta, but i think this girl has cooler hair than chanel,a dn chanel’s face is shorter and wider, her eyes are larger as well–and she is real teeny

    black velvet in the sunlight. too gorgeous. the 1st girl’s white legs are the perfect compliment. as is the 2nd girl’s black curly hair.
