Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (4:42 AM) : 

Is that Marni (bag & dress)? Love the entire look, effortless & classy, perfect for any occasion.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:54 AM) : 

Love love love the pattern on the dress!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:06 AM) : 

Great dress, beautifully matching colours in the whole outfit. I like the idea of replacing traditional jacket with the scarf. Love the bag!


Blogger Benji said ... (5:06 AM) : 

Hiya Sart,
Was just wondering.
Is this in Milan?

Gret pic, killer shoes on the background btw!


Anonymous Minx said ... (5:18 AM) : 

Great frock and bag; love the way the cracked pattern of the ground echoes the print on the dress.


Blogger Angie said ... (5:39 AM) : 

I can't keep my eyes off the bauble-boots in the background. Selena? Are you alive?


Anonymous suzanne nelson said ... (5:40 AM) : 

I like your caption - this lady makes an unusual print look serious and professional. I want to listen to what she's going to say. i love her shoes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:09 AM) : 

What a lady! Such a feminine dress; love the simple, she looks good!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:28 AM) : 

Funnky shoes, the women on the right side is wearing!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:38 AM) : 

A little bit mama-style.


Blogger whyioughtta said ... (7:17 AM) : 

Not in the government town I live in, unfortunately.

If only!

(Those shoes: TDF! Fabulous.)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:46 AM) : 

only when i looked at the enlarged version did i notice the boots worn by the lady on the right hand side of the shot... their softened shine reminds me of distant twinkling lights. or the lights of la tour eiffel, perhaps?


Blogger Maven said ... (8:07 AM) : 

From the organic "moonlight on water at midnight" print to the pashmina and fabulous bag this lady looks pulled together and elegant. Its a sophisticated and polished look that totally avoids being fussy and over-thought. She looks confident and strong- and feminine! And thats a winner, at least in my book! Thanks!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:09 AM) : 

i sure hope so...
i'd wear this in a heartbeat. less than a heartbeat.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:25 AM) : 

so striking. Love the pattern yet must confess it's the shoes that really work for me. (Have been checking out site for a while - love it and pleased to see stylish woman over 25 featured today - more please!)


Blogger metscan said ... (8:46 AM) : 

I could easily imagine myself in her clothes. Probably the dress has no sleeves ,so the pashmina is very handy. As a matter of fact I do have a dress which resembles this one. The shoes look nice too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:52 AM) : 

Although everything is probably expensive, her style is a nice dose of realism. She looks good.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:19 AM) : 

She has style! The dress is beautiful and she knows how to wear it! She is sooo elegant!


Blogger nyc/caribbean ragazza said ... (9:22 AM) : 

I really like the dress and shoes. Anyone know the designers? (not that I can afford them but I would still like to know)


Blogger Adrienne said ... (9:47 AM) : 

Wow - I love that bag! And her legs!


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (10:17 AM) : 

I do love the simplicity of this ensemble. Especially the shoes! Simply lovely.


Anonymous Helena said ... (10:25 AM) : 

This is elegance!


Blogger TEXTSTYLES said ... (10:40 AM) : 

epitome of chic and class
so beautiful


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:45 AM) : 

Look very closely: is she wearing a blue-gray cardigan as well? Her left wrist is encased in some type of fabric, the same fabric can be seen on the right just below the scarf.

Love the blue/black combo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:13 AM) : 

The dress is Marni, I have the same one, but a bit shorter, don't know the shoes tho...
love her, she looks fantastic..


Anonymous Emma said ... (11:13 AM) : 

What a handsome woman!
There are no flaws to this outfit. I adore the shoes, the dress is stunning, love the skinny belt on it, the pashmina is sitting so well and looks beautiful, the grey cardigan is lovely and takes away the white and navy uniformity.
The bag wouldn't be a personal choice, but it still looks lovely in the outfit and I can understand why she has chosen it.

Ps. adore the shoes on the girl to the right of her in the background. It's fantastic the way the gold studs look whilst out of focus!


Blogger Punkimeowzer said ... (11:37 AM) : 

A well coordinated fall ensemble. I especially love the accessories - handbag and shoes!


Blogger monique said ... (11:53 AM) : 

Excellent, no-nonsense (and yet still pretty) outfit that a gal can wear to the office. What I like best is that the shoe really looks wearable. Its a comfortable heel that most women can wear all day. The bag is nice and simple and really allows the dress t be the star of the show.

She's very pretty, stylish and smart-looking. When I grow up I want to dress like this.


Anonymous Princess Glee said ... (12:16 PM) : 

I like this woman's look, it's classy. It's also a bit matronly. I'd shorten the skirt about 3 inches, borrow the shooties from the woman on right and add the dark aviators from the man behind.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:22 PM) : 

simply Marni...


Blogger Gabrielle Zuccaro said ... (3:00 PM) : 

Classical lovely outfit. She captures the grace of the working sophisticated lady.


Anonymous karmapolice said ... (3:22 PM) : 

absolutely the new, sophisticated work look.
and she dresses perfectly for her age! not many women can do that so well.

i like the shot as well. the women on either side of her act as a sort of frame.

love the oversize scarf/pashmina in lieu of a coat. must try it.


Blogger indigo warrior said ... (3:34 PM) : 

Sart, so many people comment that they can't afford the looks that you photograph and I don't think it's possible that's true. While I'm not a fashionista in any sense of the word (my fashion, like my body, is built more for comfort than speed, if you know what I mean), I do know people who work it. They shop thrift stores, service resale shops (junior league) and low priced places like Target (targhay boutique) and even Walmart. Fashion is so much less about the designer label and so much more about being fearless in your self-expression. Where, oh where, is that blog? (c:

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:22 PM) : 

This is perfect...I could wear this to my corporate law office no problem (though not if I shortened it and added those (admittedly amazing) boots to the right as suggested above). I appreciate seeing things I can put into practice in everyday life!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:35 PM) : 

She looks very much like Mary Steenburgen.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:22 PM) : 

Three working women three distinct styles, with which each wearer is clearly very comfortable. This is a wonderful time in fashion history. And the shoes on the right...well, they are just perfect, particularly with the otherwise sombre outfit.


Anonymous Hissy Stitch said ... (8:29 PM) : 

Wearable and lovely. Except for the heels that I'd fall off of (besides, I'm on my feet waaay to much for heels), this is exactly the sort of thing that real working women can wear in comfort and look terrific in.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:47 PM) : 

I think it is really boring. I mean a modern working wardrobe?? How is this any different from anything worn by working women of the last 50 years... patterned dress, heels, big bag... Groundbreaking/New - I think not!


Blogger Ann (MobayDP) said ... (10:47 PM) : 

Oh my...those shoes on the right. Are those really for work?

I love this whole look. I ♥ that bag and those shoes.

All those layers make me wonder how cold it must be there?! brrrr!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:42 AM) : 

Absolutely Divine!! I'm so in love with the bag.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:39 AM) : 

She reminds me of that Ingrid Betancourt chick!! nice and elegant...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:20 PM) : 

Love those shoes! Where are they from?!! please someone let me know!


Blogger Olviya said ... (1:05 PM) : 

black color is so french!


Blogger Sohiny said ... (4:00 PM) : 

this would work anywhere. the dress flatters and hides in right amounts, is chic and versatile for post-work dinners. and the style (plus shawl and belt)can be found in high street budget versions too. plus the largish bag can accomodate a pair of flats in case your feet hurt. perfect. and a smart woman.


Blogger MJ said ... (11:45 PM) : 

i love the intensity of her pensive walking with such a well put-together look.


Blogger fairy queen said ... (3:29 AM) : 

She looks amazing, the pattern is so chic. I reckon every. single. woman. should dress like this to work, even if they just wear her confidence.



Blogger DATS said ... (8:05 AM) : 

the first thing I noticed when I enlarged the pic is the lady behind the picture, those gladiator rivets shoes is a winner!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:16 PM) : 

I love so many things about this. First, navy! It's a good color that is hard to find. I also LOVE the pashmina. I know they have been out of favor, but they are so useful. Her color choices, navy, grey, black are ones I really like because they let the wearer shine. Last, whether she is older or not, her outfit is classic and just uniquely put together enough to be interesting. She doesn't scream, "look at me!", but we do.


Blogger taura said ... (9:04 PM) : 

it certainly helps an outfit when the wearer has a nice figure!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:27 PM) : 

Does anyone know the designer of her handbag? I must find it...and buy it!!!

Very interesting picture, you have three women in this picture, all with a very individual way of dressing, from casual, to classic, to very fashion forward and trendy (I do love those boots).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:35 AM) : 

isn't the dress and bag from marni?


Blogger AnastasiaC said ... (10:00 PM) : 

great basic look!! its nothing too 'out there' but she is a stand out because she looks confident and comfortable in what she is wearing!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:55 AM) : 

Well you tried. You show an elegant professional woman over thirty and half the responders can't get past the shoes on the younger woman in the back.


Anonymous Claire said ... (10:28 AM) : 

Oh I hope not, it looks like the kind of outfit Marks & Spencers sell for women of a certain age who want a 'smart' outfit. That shawl, the shoes and the length of the dress, while separately are all fine, together make the look middle-aged and dowdy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:26 AM) : 

Elegant woman and outfit. Thank you, Mr. Sartorialist.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:14 PM) : 

Stylish. Beautiful. Professional. Feminine. Modest. Versatile. Inspiring. Thank you!

Wonderful baloon bag but the darks colurs are too different!simply sad


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:25 PM) : 

isn't she Cecilia Ciganer??


Anonymous court said ... (2:26 AM) : 

i am more inclined to stare at the woman in the right of the picture. i think the woman you are focusing on fails to really use her physical assets to her advantage. while the length shows off her amazing lower legs, the scarf and the stiffness of her dress really make her appear matronly and a little messy. the woman on the right, however, appears so classy and yet so subtle. the showy detailing on the shoes really draws the eyes in and balances the entire ensemble.


Blogger kerfuffler said ... (7:50 PM) : 

Some people labeled this stunning outfit as too safe, or even boring, but they missed important details: the cut of the dress features elaborate shaping---check out the seam that points to her knee. Also, the print is just too distinctive to be glossed over unappreciatively.
The bag is elegantly simple and shapely, (sexy) and works perfectly with the pashmina. Beautiful!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:59 AM) : 

Oh, I love these shoes - reminds me of dancing shoes... the dress has a nice print - looks like something of the 50s.
