    As the young'uns would say, OMG. Love the tribal-punk spiked cuff–and the way the fringe on the wrap echoes it. Love the super-functional, old-school tartan wrap/repurposed blanket. Love the tension between the spikes and what looks like a classic (cricket, perhaps?) sweater cuff. Love the un-manicured hands and refusal to stow her gear neatly in an "it" bag (or any bag). Love the hypermod shades worn with much older-feeling pieces. Love the willingness to let the wind be a hair-styling tool–many women would be desperately attempting to keep their coiffures in place!

    All in all, she looks like someone who is able to thoughtfully construct a look of her own without forcing it, becoming fussy about it, or relying on others' ideas about what's "in" or chic. Brava.

    The glasses, hair, glovlet and cuff are so punkish, but the fine shawl is such an elegant spin on plaid- another element of the punk look, which makes it kind of playful and also polished. I like this.

    Thank you to the Sartorialist, for this incredible, magical shot! The backlit hair, the glasses, the cuff. It has to be one of the best I've seen yet.

    For those who always ask the question, "Who is she wearing?" the answer appears to be, "Herself."

    I saw one comment that doesn't like the fact that she's smoking and another comment that likes the cigarette. I'm one of those people that like the "cool" a cigarette adds to a picture, a movie scene. Not a fan of the health risks, but a fan of the look. How many iconic photos or movie scenes would lose their "je ne sais quoi" minus the ciggy?
    As always Monsieur Schuman, another great photo. Merci!

    Great shot, Sart. It looked as if you electrified her hair so much that it points skywards! The ciggy's fine by me, as long as I am not there to inhale it. Tartan with punk gloves combo? Great mixing there. But there's something here that didn't sit that well with me – has anyone here noticed that she is scrowling? She would look so fine with a more neutral mien.
