    The location and light couldn’t be better to showcase her.

      My thoughts too. It is very different which isn’t bad…

    I love the dress. It has that cool vintage look!

    Retro. She looks like she is from the 70′s. Like it.

    What a beauty. Adorable dress. Wish I could pull off socks like that.

    I love the image and how her head just grazes the top of the buildings bringing an interesting scale and strength to her. As a “look”, not my cup of tea… too bare for the street. However, I am certain that is what others will like about it.

    Loooove the socks’ height -just below the knees- though they only work in straight legs like hers. Beautiful dress and colors, beautiful girl.

    No seventies look. Lolita-lookalike.

    Love the way she styles herself, cool.

    Those slips are really cool !

    It’s a cute dress and I like her stance. I like the layout of the shot, too.

    I like the socks and the detail on them – but not with this dress. Those socks would look awesome with a sleeveless black button down, tucked into black tailored shorts, then the white socks, with an Oxford shoe or something.

    She looks like she put on an old wrinkled table cloth (you can call it “vintage” if you like) and forgot her underwear. Oh, yes, I did notice the black bra. Terrible.

    I know that’s what a few of you who didn’t comment are thinking.

    The photograph, as always, is good: well-lit, good composition, interesting subject etc.

    Love the socks!!! The buttons make them very French.

    Thought dress was Free People. And that look can only work on a girl with such thin, straight thighs and un-knobby knees. Love the look when the right girl wears it — and she is the right girl!

    Perfect outfit and she looks great.

    I’d like the dress if it were lined and you couldn’t see her underwear. I think that’s an unattractive look on anyone, but especially on a girl who looks like she’s just a young kid.

    Of course, when I was her age I dressed just like this, so who am I to speak. But in retrospect, I would have wanted to look a bit classier.

    Great look, but isn’t it too hot for high socks?

  31. Becca

    Hmm, knee socks. Always a tricky look.
    They remind me of Japanese schoolgirls.

    No on the knee socks. Doesn’t look good and can’t feel good in the heat.

    Can appreciate her look but it is definitely not a favorite. Love her expression, or lack thereof…

    This FP dress is everywhere. It looks beautiful on her.

    The socks make her look like a child. Otherwise, cute dress, cute girl.

    OMG, I know exactly where this park is, I usually go there to read a good book/article and wish I’d run into someone interesting enough to photograph. Leave it to Scott to beat me to it!! Haha, beautiful capture.

    The dress is lovely, but I don’t like the socks, they “kill” the femininity of the frock.

      August 9, 2013 at 2:13 pm

      That’s the point, I’d say–the dress could easily skew cutesie-pootsie, but the socks, sneakers, and black bra–in combination with her stance–work in tension against it and make it interesting.

    I love this one. She’s away in a daydream caused by the book and just stopped by the slightly voyeuristic photographer, who has brought the camera to frog perspective, to be sure, that the socks and short detail of the dress get to attention. She will be leaving with a short smile and later on maybe smile to herself, because that guy back really had a nerve…

    Beautiful photo – it tells a story and leaves room for interpretation. So many questions and just basic answers, leaves the viewer in a fantasy created by the purity of that breathtaking split second, where everything ends and begins. The NOW.

    Love the dress, hate the socks!

      August 15, 2013 at 9:19 pm

      Yes and No. I expected someone to think it sooner as I read through the comments. Most people would wear this exact outfit, but minus the socks, of course. I certainly would. But with her lush youthfulness( and I don’t mean just her age) and a kind of Lolita spirit that others have noticed, it makes a certain sense, no?

    This dress is everywhere and seems to be quite a challenge to style. You can see she’s trying very hard but for me this is a miss. Pretty girl though.

    this is the paradox: no one really wears knee socks anymore (there is an argument in Sept about whether anyone wears anything “ironically”), but this girl has an air of naivete, so no easy explanation for the socks…
