On the Street…..Mercer St, Soho

Yesterday I shot two people wearing great items from Uniqlo.

I have only been in the store once or twice but I will have to start taking a closer look.

    That dress in fantastic. I don’t like the shoes, but she looks so comfortable and relaxed that the shoes really don’t matter.

    I was just describing Uniqlo in Japan as sort of like the Japanese GAP. Gap is also in Japan, but Uniqlo is cheaper. It’s not as easy to wear Uniqlo and look good over there. Or maybe it’s just me.

    Love the light breezy summer dress combined with the more substantial lace up pumps!

    I have a friend who swears by Uniqlo. I’ve never been there either, but she made me curious.

    I love those shoes but they seem awfully heavy for that dress

    I love Uniqlo, they are like H&M of Japan, cheap yet stylish and always have something new.
    I haven’t been to one for years, I wonder how it looks like now…

    Uniqlo has made to the US? That is one of the few stores here in Japan that carries more western sized clothing (i.e., clothing for any woman, skinny or not, that has hips, butt, etc.).

    LOVE her shoes. she can totally pull off the heavy (sort of irish-dancer-y, yeah?) black shoes and the light white dress. i think it’s her height & slender frame– it looks effortless yet sort of badass instead of obvious or dissonant.

    Two great things that don’t look great together — I like the shoes and the dress is good, but those shoes are so wrong for the outfit…

    Uniqlo rules, and I love that she paired the breezy dress with those Scottish highland lace-ups. It adds just the right touch of tough.

    I love love the dress! So summery without being impractical.

    I wish she would let her hair down because it looks like she has a lovely face but I think it goes a bit unnoticed with her hair so pulled back.

    This woman looks completely at ease in her own clothes, which is a rare thing. I love the simplicity of the paper bag-style dress and the way she carries herself.

    I was looking at a black dress similar to this by DKNY. I love the flowy, lightness about it. Plus it can be paired fine with heels and flats.

    There is something about the wide sleeves that I find disconcerting.

    Like Ian Hylton in the next post, she is a true sartorialist. Someone who has always been ahead of the fashion curve, whose daily style I have always looked forward to admiring all the years I have known her. JA

    If I were married to such a stylish, beautiful young lady I’d be the happiest man in New York. Oh. Wait there. I am. Sweet.

    A comfy looking dress.On the other hand I could imagine something like this worn at the dentist´s office.

    Beautiful summer dress. Very simplistic but elegant. I would only switch up the heels for something more simplistic, but keep it in the same tone.

    Love the shoes, but a little wintery, no? I would have paired the dress with a nice pair of flats…or even a pair of colored keds…

    I love her look!

    I don’t like the shoes, or at least, I don’t like them here, in a fresh Spring outfit, the rest is just lovely and charming.

    I’m obsessed with those shoes. They look like Irish dancing shoes, but with heels. How fabulous? Does anyone know where I could find such a thing?

    my favorite detail about this look is the watch peeking through.

    Yeah, I’ve got to be honest – I’m still not liking the “bag” style dresses and tops that we’re all supposed to be wearing. That said, I do love the combination of the dress and the shoes. Without the shoes I would definitely say “No!” to the dress, but this way the dress kind of showcases the shoes and vice versa – good contrast.

    Vivienne Westwood used to make those high-heeled ghillies; perhaps she still does. -admiring from PDX

    I love Uniqlo for its basic and agree that Gap is totally over priced in Japan!

    If you happen to pop by Japan, I recommend checking out the special edition tshirts too. Some designs have a bit of Japanese pop x manga culture. Will def make good souvenirs.

    Also a good place to fine good quality simple pieces is Muji. Though cut can be a problem as they are catered to more a more oriental body type.

    Very nice the contrast between the dress and the shoes. In fact, it gives an original, fresh and sassy touch for the look. Those shoes are perfect…With flats or keds the same dress would seem absolutely boring. I just love it! Smart choice!!!

    This seems nice and fresh, but the shoes bother me.

    Yeah Sart, you really should check out Uniqlo more often. It’s more than the Gap, closest to H&M, but a different sense of style–especially if you love color. I had a great time there when I was in NYC 2 months ago. Too bad that’s the only USA store!

    i don’t know exactly what it is but this woman looks fantastic! she looks relaxed and i love the simplicity. the nice dress, the hair hanging down by her face and the shoes. yummie!

    I think the shoes don’t go well with the dress. They destroy the easy-breezy feeling of the dress and make it look less fun! would like to see it with a colorful pair of flats or something like that…

    I think the shoes are perfect!! Whenever I see shoes that seem out of sorts with an outfit it makes me love the shoes even more!!! It makes me think of a time when shoes were completely utilitarian and expensive, you may have had several items of clothing but one rarely two pairs of shoes.
