    That is the most beautiful, and charming looking mime/naval look I’ve ever seen. Love the pouty look. :)

    I adore stripes…and it’s obviously going to be a big trend this spring and summer. But it’s a big possibility that we humans may get striped to death this year…but I might as well get a striped tote like the woman in this photo just so my striped top goes with the stuff I’m toting around.

    these proportions are crazy, and I kind of love it. plus the bag and the shirt together are so busy and good!


    April 26, 2012 at 9:22 am

    love all the mix of clothes, specially the socks and the sweater!

    Loving the combination of stripes and polka dots. I especially love how the yellow polka dot socks make such a huge different for the outfit!

    Very chic …. I still can’t make up my mind if I like the bag with this shirt – does it clash? Or is it a clever way of accessorizing with the related patterns? I personally don’t like the socks, but I do appreciate the whimsy of them. Love the forest green fur boa!

    I love the nonchalant way Parisians wear their scarves. I found another great way to wear long rectangular scarves

    wow, amazing!! Love how she mixed this long t-shirt with the skirt!

    Am I totally screwed if I say that I hate socks with sandals? I find it as bad as UGGs! Ok, maybe worse…

    But don’t take me wrong, I love 90% of your posts! The 10% excluded is the one with socks! :-)

    Maybe you should try finding a few middle-aged women every once in a while. Or do you honestly never spot any fit for you blog? Now I don’t mean the fab women of your acquaintance who appear sometimes, but you know, ordinary smart-looking women. Not exactly any shortage of grizzled blokes here.

    Love this photo. The stripes she is wearing are so French and the fact she matches the CENTURY 21 Realtors sign on the left is so Scott.

    love those socks. the length of that skirt is perfect and the bag+ top combo works really well

    April 26, 2012 at 10:49 am

    The way she uses patterns of the sweater and socks is very creative. Basic colors also make the outfit different.

    A graphic delight

    Love the proportions and the mix of black & white, with playful yellow graphic print on the socks
    The ensemble is like chic op-art

    I love the mustard clutch. I think you can never go wrong with the classic striped shirt, too.

    I love the match of the stripes between bag and shirt! And I love the other colors: yellow and dark green, so charming!

    Love this tongue in cheek take on french stripes, and with those socks and those shoes, it is just so perfect! That’s how you do mariniere!

    Loving stripes right now! (Actually, loving stripes ALWAYS!) Been wearing them pretty often these past few days! Here’s two of the most recent takes:

    They can be styled to look preppy, classic, or modern…truly versatile!


  52. London'adorais

    April 26, 2012 at 11:26 am

    Absolutely love it! Love the overload of stripes – with the spotty socks and yellow clutch the outfit is so much more than just a french look!

    I love that skirt length. Can´t understand why some people say it´s “hard to wear”. It´s elegant and chic. As we would say in Sweden: parant. I´m so tired of all those middle-aged tired knees.

    Fresh take on classic geometrics! Cute. With these proportions, I think only certain body types (like hers) could pull it off. Great backdrop.

    A talented fashionista indeed.
    But have to say I endorse comment by Cruella above. All these young beautiful women who look like models … If this blog is about the sartorial, there are surely so many women you are just not seeing. Yet you have such an eye.

    Agree w/Cruella. Is there absolutely nobody in NYC over the age of 50 who is photo-worthy? Bill Cunningham seems to find them.

    I’m sorry, I hate this. These proportions are so wrong – her head looks so tiny. I hate the scarf around the neck so tight, the clashing stripes, the whole shape of it all. Her outfit is just not doing it for me, even though hypothetically I love stripes, black skirts, polka dots, fur and chunky sandals.

    Her bag is spectacular but overwhelmed by her top…which does not allow the bag to come forward. Not perfect.

  118. Poppy Lambert

    This lady has been really clever with the proportions of her clothes – whether purposeful or completely accidental. I’m struck by an illusion of her body being stretched out, and am not entirely sure If I feel comfortable with that! However, the simplicity of all the things she is wearing I think enables the stripes/spots/yellow/monochrome/fur unusual combination to be brought off wonderfully – not something many people could do.

  119. Wallace

    July 6, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    So beautiful. I love the setting of this shot. The background is soft and she kicks out nicely against it. She looks amazing. It must be so daunting asking people to take their photo in a foreign country. Respect. Wallace.
