Nice silhouette, the jacket is great, the colour of the shoes and socks are a good contrast to the shades of grey of her trousers and hat.
i like the picture.

That's a confident gesture to wear nearly new shoes and hope to keep salt stains at bay!

LOVE a camel shoe with a fun sock and grey!! So hot!


Blogger Lil said ... (9:45 AM) : 

Long, long time ago -when I was a teenager- we wore those shoes.

Here in Germany they were called duck-shoes.


Blogger Κάλαθο said ... (9:46 AM) : 

I want these shoes!


Blogger comme fraiche said ... (9:49 AM) : 

Those shoes look so comfortable and practical for the streets of New York. I think a black or darker color would be a better match with what she's wearing.

Blogger 82Brute said ... (11:53 AM) : 

I love the proportions here, but most especially I love the way the subject is leaning into whatever the future has to offer.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:56 AM) : 

More floods? I'm digging everything here but the length of the pants.


Blogger CP said ... (12:02 PM) : 

Superb! More like this please!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:05 PM) : 

Not a fan of those shoes. Trendy slub hat. Looks like a random person in NYC.


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

I get it, I get it: slim-legged pants are short and off the shoe.

Love the sea-green behind the gray stocking cap, and the usual contrast of focus.


Blogger the dressmaker said ... (12:20 PM) : 

The green background really makes the gray color pop! Nice.

Simplicity in action. And such an inviting pose.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:49 PM) : 

the streets are not flooding...someone should tell her it's ok to roll her pants down. overall a very unflattering ankle region.


Blogger said ... (12:54 PM) : 

Are those Clarks?'ve seen it beofre but cool.

1970's flashback!
those orange crepe soled shoes certainly make a statement 30 years later.

What makes this photo interesting is the drape of the knit cap, the slight peplum of the jacket, the cropped ankle and slant of the trouser and the toe box of the shoe.

all put together in profile it has impact.


Anonymous Heather said ... (1:16 PM) : 

i love that hat!


Blogger Frozen Fashion said ... (1:19 PM) : 

Such a strong profile few. I love the surprise I got when I scrolled down and voila! Caramel Tan shoes to complete the outfit!

Now if I can only get a hat to sit on my head like this.

Oh c'mon, Sart! What is interesting on this outfit? Did I miss something? Truly speaking, I had wished for a more glamorous start of your blog into 2011. Apropos, a joyful new year to everyone!


Blogger Gorete Sousa said ... (1:43 PM) : 

Nice Pic!!!!


Anonymous Best of Beehive said ... (1:51 PM) : 

The cuff in the pants that flood a little above the shoes is a great example of how a small detail can make all the difference in an outfit.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:23 PM) : 

lovely, but the shoes look too big for him/her


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:30 PM) : 

That's a young woman. My own daughter looks precisely this way, and MaryAnn has it right -- the angle of the hat that flows into the drape of the scarf that leads down to the jutting peplum-bottom that drives down to the angle of the cuff and then that shoe. Perfection.


Blogger the nyanzi report said ... (2:42 PM) : 

nice and clean.
a perfect shot!

Such a great look! Those shoes are perfect and I love the hat.

Nope... Noppppeeee..

I think the pants make his feet look huge! Or maybe he's wearing someone else's shoes? Don't you think his feet looks weird?

And red socks??? Really?

Nice lips, thou.

Anonymous jdit said ... (4:07 PM) : 

I hope there's a lover in her life who, sometimes when it is cold like it is, pulls her close by the lapels of that wonderful cloth coat and brings her near enough to share their warmth and touch noses.

The hunched up shoulders and hipster-leaned toque say it all about right now. Those shoes are all about happy feet!

Bravo Scott...

Love his hat!


Blogger Lindsay Rose said ... (6:51 PM) : 

I like how his shoes and socks pop, but I don't know about the way the pants are tucking around his butt, maybe a little girly? Then again, why should it only be acceptable for women to wear pants like that? "Why not?" I say.

Hello Scott!
I'm and American photographer living and working in Seoul for the past two years. I would love to show you around this amazing city, especially the cafes. I'm an expert on cafes here as it is what I photograph the most. I know the best ones in terms of lighting, architecture, ambiance and of course, interior design). You will be amazed, trust me.

Have a great day!

P.S. I leave for Paris on the 19th of January to participate in Maison et Objet but will return to Seoul on the 28th.

grays look rad and the cuffed up pants are killer.



Blogger Kacrates said ... (1:10 AM) : 

Haha very classic. I love the way she leaned forward. xD


Anonymous Tamara said ... (3:17 AM) : 

simplicity is key.
this outfit is nothing short of amazing, with the greys and blacks being the main part of the outfit, but then the shoes really stand out, simply for being a different color, not a bright one.
you instantly look at her shoes.
who knew tan could stand out so much!
