    The boots rock, but she obviously cannot ride a bike too well in those boots (and the short skirt).

    With the exception of the boots, this woman looks like Ann Coulter in the late 1990s.

    Yeah Lower East Side!! Venture on down towards Broome and Orchard.

    shiver me timbers!

    Indeed she is a long haired beauty and she is rocking her American Apparel Sailor top with precision!

    The shoes are??

    I guess this is one of those examples you were talking about in a previous post. I don't think I like any of the clothes she is wearing, looking at them on their own, but I like the way she looks and dresses. Inspiring, therefore!

    It's so interesting when a combination of clothes speaks to a personl style, but as was just said, alone those pieces would be a bit dull.
    LOVE the boots!!!

    Actually CW, she can ride her vie just fine. I do it all the time in heels and skirts.

    Heels on a bike are no problem at all. She just needs to be strategic with the skirt – unless she's devil-may-care.

    Great photo, looks like spring time has arrived to lower East side, and I am lovin' it.

    Skirts and bikes and boots can go together, honestly, it is more the vehicles and other people to 'skirt around' that I find difficult riding around in city.

    I love this. If I had the hair and legs, I would totally wear this. Oh, and I don't ride a bike. She looks like a young (and dressier) Patti Smith. The skirt is an unexpected contrast to the casualness of the top and boots. Love it. Love the stop sign in the background. Who is she?

    I can deal with the skirt and shoes together but the shirt has got to go. And the big bushy hair doesn't work well with the little girl skirt. It all is not fitting together at all to me. I like clashing styles but she is not handling it well.

    This is one of those "je ne sais quoi" outfits that, on paper, shouldn't work but in practice looks fantastic. Love the way she finesses the sandals-with-socks look… one has to look twice to see that she's not wearing boots. And a previous poster's right–she does have a Patti Smith vibe!

    Funny, heads down, her outfit is very contemporary (love the striped top and the boots!). Yet this photo reminds me of Franz Von Stuck's painting and his women – dark, strong, and mysterious – a proper femme fatale.
    Its her posture, the mass of hair, and the lighting that does it, I think.

    To have hair that long u need to either style it on a braid, ponytail, bun, straighten it, curl it, I don't know…. Otherwise you look like Cousin It……… Can't barely see her! The outfit is predictable, love the boots and the fact she hangs around Ludlow makes up for any faux pas. Just love the LES!

    Yikes! Not a well put together look in my opinion. I don't like the skirt (at least not with that outfit), the striped sweater doesn't work with it and the boots aren't attractive. Even her long, thick hair isn't working. Sorry, but this seems like a miss to me…
