    And I want that hat the girl in the first photo is wearing. ;)

    Both pictures are very hot!! The women are beautiful and intriguing. The brown woman in the bottom photo with her dewy eyes waits wistfully for her lover to return, ready with a warm embrace–that jacket is just not enough to stave off the chill of being alone.

    gotta love l.a. … just another day in, ho-hum, paradise. except for our traffic and smog and no real sense of "city" in our urban jambalaya and suburban sprawl. but, we 10 million angelinos call it home. "i love l.a." (nod to randy newman) … gotta love it.

    Splendid! Some coverage of L.A., could we get a tad bit more?

    My boyfriend and I love your photos, to the point where he got his second tattoo a couple years back from this blog: the image of the gentleman with the brocade shorts and the gilded shoes.

    And that ink was placed right below a tattoo that reads "Los Angeles". Point in case:

    I know you have a tremendous following over here, could we get a little more love?

    Interesting to compare the strong, open spirit of the quite feminine woman carrying her suitcase on her oar in the vintage photo with the just trying too hard look of the woman in the red bottoms. We've lost the plot…

    As a woman living in la, the first picture of the woman in bloomers is the one of the two which most accurately portrays summer style in the city. The sideboob, the bit of an androgyness feel to it, the sort of "not give a sh*t" look on her face. I wouldn't say she's not a lady, or this look is trashy as some have been commenting. It's strong, bold, and beautiful.

    I'm sure you will get lots of differing comments about the first photo. What is hot to one person is tacky and cheap to another. But that second photo…no doubt it will evoke a unanimous yes from all. It's a sensual, alluring and altogether artful photo of a beautiful woman.

    I'm just not cool enough for the first photo – for me that's a don't…ever – but the bottom picture is really AMAZING. Without trying to implicate race in any way, I can't help but see a Gauguin Tahiti image in the angle of her head, the depth of the backdrop, etc. It's just gorgeous; she's just gorgeous.

    Add me to the chorus of folks singing the praises of the second photo and the woman in it.

    The first photo… hmmmm. That look is a bit much, esp. since with one wrong move she'll be illegal in most states. But I do like the almost tomboyish vibe that keeps the look fresh and appealing.

    As for the comments about the look being tacky–honestly, I find the blue bikini bottom to the right a whole lot tackier.

    OPEN LETTER/REQUEST/PLEA: to The Satorialist

    Dear Satorialist,

    Can you please come back to Los Angeles to take pictures of our people? How is it you take to the streets of Paris, Milan, Tokyo and New York for random style checks but on this rare occasion you have come to document L.A., you throw on some flip flops, slather on sun screen and head to a pool party?! REALLY!!?!?! Unfair.

    I absolutely love the top picture. The t shirt and hat are great!
    As for the little wall flower with the feet, I don't know. Is she talking on the phone or just posing? Its a lovely picture, however.
    LA is one of the most amazing, beautiful cities I have ever been to. Traffic is a small price to pay for the beach and the attitude, and the amazing weather.
    To the people who are harping on dignity I should like to say that dignity doesn't come from a bra. It comes from how you treat yourself, and more importantly, how you treat others. There is very little dignity in judging people you don't even know. What do you all wear poolside? A three piece suit?


    July 22, 2011 at 10:53 pm
