On the Street………Prince St. , Soho

Did you ever see that movie Funny Face?

This young lady reminds me of that movie.

Audrey Hepburn was pretty chic as the (before) bookish shop clerk and very chic in the (after) fashion muse.

    Hello.I like this picture.The dress nicely compliments the shiny hair the girl has.I personally would have chosen a blouse more chic and black shoes.The bag though matches the dress.

    I like that she chose green shoes instead of the more predictable black.

    “Audrey Hepburn was pretty chic as the (before) bookish shop clerk and very chic in the (after) fashion muse.”

    absolutely! and this lovely young lady seems like a great blend of the two. She mastered the downtown-book-clerk look with the uptown-chic look quite well.

    i love when things dont match but instead they just go together or mesh well. this lady looks great without trying hard to.

    It occurs to me, after looking at your recent European photos, that this is a very American look.

    What I mean is: I’m so glad she didn’t try to match the color of her shoes to, say, her brooch.

    This reminds me of the way I dress. Elegant and a little nerdy, but she has a cooler haircut which makes a big difference

    I think this is how people should do effortlessly chic. I like how she chose simple pieces and let the chic factor just emanate from the way she wears it.

    i second what misshoax said, welcome back and glad to hear that all’s better for you and yours.

    i like the girl’s look. very feminine. it’s both grown-up and youthful.

    How do women pull off these slouchy & puffy looks? I just end up looking dumpy, and i’m not even that big…sigh.
    Anyway, she looks great. I love the top, and the green shoes are perfect. They pull the outfit into spring.

    I love this woman’s casual Euro chic– the look I love is that fine line between fabulous and dowdy. And yes, it is a fine line. This look is quite Prada, and just goes to show you can be casual and comfortable without sweats and trainers.
    I gree with Miss Hoax.

    Yes, with the big shades and the flats, her look is reminiscent of Audrey. Beautiful and chic!

    Funny Face: Saw it, adore it, have memorized it…and totally agree: this look combines Audrey’s bookish and chic sides in that film.

    Luuuurve the green shoes.

    Okay I could just so so manage the blouse-but the shoes just aren´t right for the outfit.First the color is weird and ballerinas are not comportable to wear on paved streets.

    I bet she knows lots of interesting facts about art, books and architecture. Chic and simple – and I don’t think it’s about being ‘Eurpoean’ or ‘American’. She justs looks great!

    So refreshing. So nice to see someone not all “designered” out. It is much more inspiring to see someone who can look cool and effortless in affordable clothes versus the overdone new york city designer duds. You should show these gals more often. They are natural and original. Nice work.

    she looks a little petite to carry off that high waist on the skirt, but i love her blouse/sweater.

    at first i thought it was nicole richie, though!

    Oh goodness, this is too much. I love the overall slouchiness of the outfit, with the sort of disheveled tuck of the shirt into the skirt, but I also love the inherent elegance in these pieces. The knee-length black skirt, the flats, and the color combo are a counter-balance to the attitude of her hair and sunglasses and crinkly shirt.

    I missed you. Very much. I think I am addicted. :)

    I love this look. It really suits her.

    While it may seem quite simple and classical it takes guts to wear this kind of outfit and pull it off.

    I think the thing that’s saving her from looking dumpy or dowdy is the all important Attitude.

    now there’s an achievement – making that top part of a chic ensemble. it could just so easily look matronly.

    A fabulous movie!!

    I love the folds of fabric on her blouse and skirt – very feminine. Simple and chic.

    She sort of looks a little lop sited to me. I think that a pair of green earings and a green shoe with a little heel would of improved the outfit. Shes a little young for such a long skirt and her shirt makes her look a little flat. The outfit itself is not bad but I would defenetly add a few things to make it look a littleyounger, and I agree her is very nice. The sun glasses are great I think that without them she would probably look very dorky.
