Thank you so much for brightening up my day, such a chic lady

Woaw - what a cool look such a brilliant design of the dots - classic but with a playfull twist.

Very stylish young person.

so it's still spring in new york, ey? :P absolutely gorgeus, the hair, the shoes and the dress. and the cut of that dress. love how young people bring such beauty to old fashion. thank you scott!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:03 AM) : 

Perfect!! I especially like the hair. The dress is very nice, elegant. What is the bag, by the way? Does anyone know?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:11 AM) : 

Now THAT is perfection!


Blogger Butch said ... (7:26 AM) : 

Here we go. Perfect shirtwaist dress, with a pleasingly pert yet knowing character.

Only problem is with the bag, which is too large for the rest--but if you've got to carry a lot of stuff....


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (7:31 AM) : 

Love veverything about her look! It's perfect!
She has a great smile!


Anonymous Mark, London said ... (8:05 AM) : 

Wow! Traffic-stoppingly gorgeous. Fantastic look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:21 AM) : 

Ahhh.... perfect, from the hairdo to the flipped-up collar of her *fabulous* shirtdress to her t-strap heels. This is the kind of look that always looks fresh, no matter what age you are.


Blogger greg said ... (8:55 AM) : 

She is gorgeous. If I lived there I would never get any work done. I would be on the street watching people like this all the time!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:06 AM) : 

I LOVE the dress. Wonderful!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:06 AM) : 

Brilliant design and pattern. I like how the polka dots draw the eye down and up, but not to the middle (not that she has anything to worry about. In her case, she the belt is a great touch for showing off her great figure) Her stylishness and insouciance complete the look beautifully. Bravo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:10 AM) : 

Perfect post for today. On the anniversary of one of NY's darkest days, you've shown us one of New York's most wonderful sights - a beautiful girl in a great dress, smiling & looking great against the sunny background of NYC. 9/11's always a hard one for me, but you've really brightened it up. Thanks, Sart!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:13 AM) : 

The thing that bothers me here is,that it is almost too perfect to be true. I guess she has really spent lots of time fixing her outfit,make-up and hair.Maybe if she had not fixed everything to perfection I would like it more.Now there is nothing left for the viewer and the big bag doesn´t count.


Blogger Lisa said ... (9:13 AM) : 

What a gorgeous lady and stunning picture. Where was it taken?


Blogger Dani said ... (9:40 AM) : 

It looks great on her. She has the right figure and hair.


Blogger Kathleen said ... (9:41 AM) : 

Adorable dress, and I love her haircut, but why is she carrying a suitcase?


Blogger positively the same dame said ... (9:42 AM) : 

This is off topic, but I posted this Ann Sexton poem here on this blog on September 11th a year ago and, as a fellow new yorker, I hope you don't mind if I post it again today.


Riding the Elevator Into the Sky
By Anne Sexton (1975)

As the fireman said:
Don't book a room over the fifth floor in any hotel in New York.
They have ladders that will reach further
but no one will climb them.
As the New York Times said:
The elevator always seeks out
the floor of the fire
and automatically opens
and won't shut.
These are the warnings
that you must forget
if you're climbing out of yourself.
If you're going to smash into the sky.

Many times I've gone past
the fifth floor,
cranking upward,
but only once
have I gone all the way up.
Sixtieth floor:
small plants and swans bending
into their grave.
Floor two hundred:
mountains with the patience of a cat,
silence wearing its sneakers.
Floor five hundred:
messages and letters centuries old,
birds to drink,
a kitchen of clouds.
Floor six thousand:
the stars,
skeletons on fire,
their arms singing.
And a key,
a very large key,
that opens something –
some useful door –
somewhere –
up there.

She looks great! I love her style...

want the dress! want the shoes! love it, love it! the belted dress look is fab.


Blogger Candid Cool said ... (9:58 AM) : 

Cute. Fabulous shoes.


Blogger jessiegurl79 said ... (10:02 AM) : 

I love it! So beautiful, refreshing, and modest!


Anonymous Dee said ... (10:28 AM) : 

I like that look. Lovely dress!
Who wouldn't want to look like that?


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

a modern audrey hepburn. I love it


Blogger Jane Flanagan said ... (10:52 AM) : 

I think she must leave nothing but smiles in her wake!


Blogger Asha lee said ... (11:39 AM) : 

Very chic. Almost looks like a Parisian...


Anonymous Jasmine A said ... (11:52 AM) : 

Wow, everything works here. So beautiful!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:52 AM) : 

I love this site, but one of the things i love is seeing New York and feeling like i am there on that day. But it is raining and dismal in the city today, and this woman is in full sun. I guess these shots are stock, but i wish it were more like a visual diary.


Blogger WendyB said ... (12:00 PM) : 



Blogger Butch said ... (12:21 PM) : 

Positively the Same, thanks so much for the Sexton poem--particularly welcome on a sad day that can go sentimentally lugubrious....



Blogger ricpic said ... (12:38 PM) : 

Lovely. As to location: Bryant Park.


Blogger Deja Pseu said ... (12:42 PM) : 

YES!! Eveything here works, love the simplicity!!


Blogger Stacy said ... (1:32 PM) : 

Such confidence for such a young lady.

Very refreshing and spring-like. Makes me feel like we're going to skip winter this year.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:36 PM) : 

Comment for anon 9:13... Nothing left for the viewer? How about that nice sensation of looking at someone confident in what she's wearing? The feeling that you want to smile in response to another's warm smile, which brightens your whole day? And I disagree that this look is overdone--her hair is cut so well, it looks like it's pretty much a wash-and-wear kind of style. Nothing is simpler than putting on a great dress--the true style, I believe, is in the little flip of the collar. That is making a great dress her own (as well as the slightly conspiratorial smile).

Great blog, I just found it.
It's from Florence, Italy.
Take a look at this.


Blogger MacGuffin said ... (4:27 PM) : 

She looks great!


Blogger Leah said ... (5:44 PM) : 

Beautiful! Perfect!


Anonymous 10012girl said ... (8:01 PM) : 

Thank you for the poem- it's beautiful.

And I'm glad the sun is shining in the picture even though it's raining outside. I dread the end of summer!


Blogger said ... (9:21 PM) : 

gorgeous...if she wore that in my town, cars would be fender-bendering each other while taking an extra glance at such a vision...and what girl wouldn't take that as a compliment?


Blogger positively the same dame said ... (9:39 PM) : 

Butch and 10012

You are most welcome -- my pleasure.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:32 PM) : 

sorry to be debbie downer but... not that impressed. i guess i would like it more if it didn't seem like she had spent so long preening and perfecting. i like the shoes. i like the bag. i like the hair. i do not like polka dots. i do not like the collar on the dress nor the sleeves. i especially do not like the collar and the sleeves combined. AND i'm really over the belt. sorry. you also mention that she's a young sophisticate which makes this outfit that much worse. if shes around my age, which she probably is, it just seems as if she's trying too hard to be "grown up". just makes me feel that she's playing dress up. too costume-y. she needs something that would throw it off and she obviously thought the bag would do the trick. not so much....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:36 PM) : 

I always find it amusing when someone like the previous poster leaves the longest comment and the only one that's negative. I think it evidences a certain jealousy and unwillingness to let others be praised. she looks great and, though the bag's a bit large, fashion week comes with show notes, folders and goodie bags to carry. All it says is that she's a practical girl as well as a stylish one.


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

This really looks like a model shoot.Only the bag-which is too massive for the light outfit-shakes the picture.Perhaps the bag could be some other shape plus color,then the model effect would be perfect.


Anonymous Pearl said ... (12:19 AM) : 

The bag looks like Prada to me..


Blogger citizen said ... (12:38 AM) : 

so cute in general - i love the hair.


Anonymous fashionholic said ... (4:42 AM) : 

Wish I was in NYC right now.. beats 11 degrees celsius in Stockholm!! love the dress!!! lovely photo!


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (6:58 AM) : 

Love it all - especially her hair!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:47 AM) : 

Does anyone know who does that dress - love it! I'm so sick of seeing girls in sack dresses this look is sophisticated and polished. It almost has a slight vintage vibe, or like its out of an old movie scene. Love that Prada bag too!


Blogger Miss Shoo said ... (1:04 PM) : 

Proper lady, with a proper dress - love it!


Anonymous Francesca said ... (3:42 PM) : 

I really bealive that the world needs this kind of image! This lady looks confortable, with a simple sofistication and teh most important: happy!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:43 PM) : 

wow. great. that´s it. I can´t say any more.


Blogger topazz said ... (3:47 PM) : 

the t-strap shoes are aerosoles - I recognize them because I have them myself! Extremely comfortable and stylish and only about $39.00. You don't have to spend a fortune on comfortable stylish shoes, really.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:08 PM) : 

actually, the shoes are python christian louboutins (about $795). look closely and you'll see the red soles.


Blogger M. said ... (12:36 AM) : 

I love the dress, and the hair-- I'm so glad that short hair is back again!


Blogger AnastasiaC said ... (1:15 AM) : 

ohhh she's lovely
what a gorgeous dress! and that smile!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:45 AM) : 

i love this entire look, but i just can't stand the shoes--they just arent classy enough for this dress and they just ruin it for me! bah!

anyone know where the dress is from?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:14 AM) : 

I like to imagine she's meeting someone special after work.

Lucky someone.

-- desertwind

On a mundane level -- anyone know who made the dress?


Blogger nolifebeforecoffee said ... (6:01 AM) : 

...jealous the weather is that good in NYC!


Blogger stone said ... (1:26 PM) : 

she looks great, but unless she is is actualy carting something important, I thinkl this oversized bag thing has gone too far.


Anonymous Modediktator said ... (5:08 PM) : 

I'm so much in love with this picture! You're having such a perfect eye for finding the right background to each model - that's terrific!!!!


Anonymous Sarah said ... (12:39 PM) : 

There really aren't that many people like this in NY. I was there last weekend. 95% of the people look ridiculous.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:48 PM) : 

just want to say in general that your blog is great. i love seeing the nyc photos especially. i'm already planning on moving there but seeing your photos makes me wish it was happening sooner. thanks!

Very inspiring!.This is one of my favorites. thanks Sart!.


Blogger Jesse said ... (6:38 PM) : 

Smoothe and deliciously classic. I miss New York when I see her.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:55 PM) : 

absolutely gorgeous/adorable. Words simply do not suffice.


Blogger Izetta said ... (1:10 PM) : 

The dress is similar in style to a black (with white polka dots) dress I have from democracy. I see someone referenced de la Renta. Did anyone find for certain who made the dress.

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

It is a Kay Unger dress ... on clearance at Neiman Marcus.


Anonymous sherie' said ... (11:02 AM) : 

In 1962 my mother wore an identical dress. She had a stunning resemblance to Ava Gardner and even though I was only 10, I can see her like it was yesterday. Thanks for the reminder with this gorgeous shot.
