    Just love the whole outfit! That skirt is so hip, and the boots are very stylish too. I wish I could borrow those to add to my collection! Love your pics as usual!

    this style and gray monochrome, with the interplay of various tones and textures, mirrors my mood perfectly, a numbing tedium and subdued excitement for a new week; monday, monday, cannot trust that day.

    Wau, perfect picture, the different shades of grey in her clothes, and those on the building. The red envelope in her hand and the red tiles. I love this one!
    I like her look too, really stylish, elegant, classic.
    Really a great shot Scott!

    I love everything about the ensemble. The different grays, the shoes, bag, scarf, jacket, tights, & skirt. Perfect proportion and balance. My eyes kept going back to the shoes. I would have added a colorful piece of jewelry, but that is my own sensibility.

    I wish they would make the same shoes with 2 to 2-1/2" heels.

    Wow. The short skirt and boots really made this look for her.

    The warm color tones of the building and brick in the background show off the cool shades of grey in her clothes. I like how the piece of paper in her hand also matches the warm tones of the background. Great photo.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned her cute short hair! It's darling – and adds so much to her overall look. Would long hair on the same outfit look as good? I don't think so. Great picture, Scott. I love the stripe of blue-gray wall behind her.

    Scott, brilliant pix…kudos! Love the shading of her skirt matching the shading in the ancient stone foundation. Then the terra cotta note in her hand matching the old bricks. Your artistic eye astounds me. I don't go a day without checking your blog.

    Women look far more chic when they're dressed like this, rather than walking billboards for every designer logo known to man.

    Masculine dressing. Until I saw the whole photo and noticed the mini-skirt, I thought it was a guy wearing shades of grey handsomely.

    I have the happiest memories of Milan. Thanks for bringing them back with this sophisticated ensemble! The Italians certainly know how to look good.

  86. Jamie B.

    April 4, 2011 at 7:01 pm

    Love the look…but I have been wanting to ask this for a while. What is with a lot of the people in these photos that don't "wear" their coats? They just throw them over their shoulders and I guess I don't get it. I'm assuming it must just be "the style" but for some reason this bugs me. Why bother even wearing a coat if you aren't even going to put your arms thu it? Sorry, just a random thought…

    Aaah chi wa wa what a sexy shoe! Goes great with the tights–keeps it out of the hooker realm.

    I wonder if she stole that coat off her beau? Mens' coats always seem to look better on the dimunitive shoulders of their girfriends. Very chic shot, Sart (say that fast)!!

  90. Davidikus

    April 5, 2011 at 11:40 am

    I know that it is not strictly speaking part of the look (well, on that picture it is), but I love that touch of brown!

  91. Wanderbuster

    April 5, 2011 at 3:24 pm

    @Jamie B. — I hear you! I was wondering the same, whether it is the physical trend in Milan to not wear the coat but rather strut with it tossed over the shoulders.

    April 5, 2011 at 5:30 pm

    Wow! I thought this photo was going to pan out to be of a very stylist man wearing a beautiful jacket, but then I scrolled down to the top of the leg and discovered a short skirt, great legs and high heels! Totally works!

    Ooh, PERFECT look. The shoes are a bit much for me, but the skirt makes the outfit.
