    A superb photograph. This has mood and style. I particularly like the far away look the girl has in her eyes. She's almost switched off from what seems to be a bustling city scene.

    Great autumn colours she's wearing

    I like the frames. Although if I had to wear something like that I would opy for the ones worn by Philip Seymour Hoffman in Capote when he gave a reading of "In Cold Blood" to his audience. The tortoiseshell wayfarers.

    I like this look – Great glasses.
    I love the plaid in her skirt/pants can't tell which – and her hair! European women tend to have beautiful natural hair which is so nice after all the blond straight cuts.

    This young woman is very stylish, and speaks to my own heart. I particularly love the colors, and the mixture of the patterned scarf, quilted bag, and plaid bottoms. Since they all lie within the same muted family, nothing shouts too loudly at the beholder. The glasses may be hipster, yes, but because of her slightly more mature age (young, but not a teenager), and the classics of the bottoms, bag, and watch, she pulls them off in a robert lowell urban sophisticate kind of way. Lovely lady. And her lips are her own best accessory.


  58. meghan

    She looks a little like Rachel McAdams to me! Somehow the brown signature Chanel purse looks more chic than the black one in this picture…

    She looks wonderful in those glasses–when I was in NY in the summer I saw a few young women wearing the oversize black "nerd" frames. I would love to try a pair, but I don't know if I could pull it off; I think you have to be young and beautiful!

    Everything works together in this ensemble. The cut of her glasses, the rich fabrics, the hue and weight of the quilted bag and the centerpiece – the Italian wool scarf. Elegant Italian chic at its best.

    Those glasses have some big, heavy frames and not everyone could wear them by a long shot. She can because she has strong features and the rounding of the frames contrasts with her squarish jaw. Good for her! to figure it out!
    Now about that brown Chanel bag….a need is created..

    These are Sponge Bob's goofy nerd glasses and I simply don't understand why they are so trendy. Only people who are desperately trying to look hip don such goofy glasses. Otherwise the look is very pedestrian. But she is obviously quite lovely.

    All around simply beautiful. She is a striking model and has a gorgeous face. But also, as the title suggests, this outfit is just so autumn! I love the use of grey throughout the outfit, but my particularly favourite item is the brown chanel bag. You rarely see the bag in this colour, but I think it looks brilliant.

    Can't say it enough; simply beautiful.

    she does it well, dont get me wrong, and she is very pretty, i like her very natural hair.

    love it!
    I've seen that bag so many times in a black way, and it was nice, but brown it's awesome!
    the girl's cute, scarf's wonderful, glasses too (like mine!) and trousers are fantastic.
    I do really love it

    and I'm from milan too :)

    Amazing outfit. The glasses don't work. I would have much preferred a gold pair or something older-looking.

    the combination of colors, textures, patterns and how everything gets rounded up by the glasses! Thank you for sharing. Printed cooler Bags are great way to get your brand noticed and make staff look smart and professional.

    What a lovely face she has. And I enjoy how the large glasses direct attention to her beautiful eyes.

    Dear Mr. Sartorialist,

    I'm a 17 year old American lad, almost off to college to be a film major, amateur photographer, and admirer of fashion. I have been following your blog for a few weeks now, and I must say.. I want to be you, as in, from what I can gage from a blog, you lead a life like I want to lead mine. Seeing these trendy people and how seemingly effortlessly you capture them is a real inspiration.

    Thank you sir

    Thank you for this photo. She has a beauty mark below the right side of her lip that adds an engaging beauty meets deep-thinker like intellect look .. the outfit and pose are extensions of that personality. From her features, what she thinks, sees and says (prominent lips) is of greater interest and curiosity.

    especially captivating is the elegant tilt of her wrist into a slim, finely boned hand.

    I like this girl and I love her style.

    She looks like the perfect person to cuddle up to on a cold Xmas morning
