wow! pink ruffle skirt, doc martens and that attitude makes it a wonderful combo :)


Blogger Jess said ... (4:35 AM) : 

Smoking at med school?

Must be French.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:39 AM) : 

You should try to visit new towns, Paris isn't the only fashion place in France. The Med School of Marseille is rather nice too...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:51 AM) : 

she is beautiful. i love the textures of the shirt and skirt. the skirt -especially- seems fun with the beading and the one loose thread hanging. i know most people won't like the combat boots but they so nicely balance the very feminine top half. thank you sart.

Felix, did you miss the series of photos from HYERES? They were posted end of April and almost all garnered over a hundred comments. So, if by chance you did miss it, just click on April 2008 and you will see how the Sartorialist captured the fashion scene in another French city. Enjoy!

What can be nicer, than put on a pair of Docs on a hot lovely sunny day?
To take them off at the end...


Blogger Luiza Sauma said ... (6:27 AM) : 

So Nineties! Lovely.


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:28 AM) : 

Love it!! Great outfit and great picture. I love the combat boots with frilly skirt look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:02 AM) : 

I like this too. She looks comfortable, yet fashionable. Plus, she's drinking Orangina and smoking a cigarette. Not that's hot.


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (8:06 AM) : 

I love this look and the subject; could this also be one of your best non-fashionista pictures? I like that she balanced feminine clothes with the combat boots and the aviators. Great shot! Jorge from W Palm Beach


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:24 AM) : 

love the texture of the shirt! anyone know anything about it?


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

Thrilling tension between the feminine skirt and the tough boots!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:32 AM) : 

Pigeon-toed and she's not even standing up!


Blogger The Domina said ... (9:36 AM) : 

I love the dichotomy here between the light weight skirt and the docs...her attitude in the photo totally sells the look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:43 AM) : 

To Anon 4:57:

You're right, the photos from Hyeres were absolutely fantastic...alas, Felix is spot-on: Sart should explore new places more often...Hyeres is only one example in a sea of Paris, Paris, Paris.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:44 AM) : 

Not crazy about it. It's as though the boots are too heavy for the delicate top. They weigh her down in a way that does not balance.


Blogger Erin Aviles said ... (9:59 AM) : 

I guess I don't see what's so fashion-forward about this look. It looks pretty basic to me--what thousands of girls have worn before, a skirt and combat boots. Although it does make me think that my own closet might be slightly more interesting than I thought, if outfits like this can make it on here.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:02 AM) : 

orangina!!! yummi


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:14 AM) : 

What's up? Running out of ideas?
This doesn't garner a second look.


Blogger jessica said ... (10:30 AM) : 

love this... i've been missing this kind of more relaxed shot of a non-fashion person!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:59 AM) : 

Finally an outfit that could be worn in real life! Love the t-shirt: simple but perfect fit!


Blogger annie said ... (11:01 AM) : 

I like the combo of punk + girly, but otherwise, I'm not sure what exactly the allure is of this ensemble... it's a little bit boring, at least for the sartorialist. Her attitude rocks but the style in this photo is a little predictable.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (11:10 AM) : 

erin G

did you look at the textures of what she is wearing?

the mixing of her leather(?)top and frilly/girly skirt is so cool.


Blogger Karen said ... (12:05 PM) : 

It's been so hot lately, that this girl looks exactly like I feel.

This is definitely a look for the very young, those still in school. An interesting mix of textures, and the pink with black that was so popular in the 50's works here, too. Heavy boots with the girly skirt are too much of a cliche, though. Imagine this with strappy sandals and without the cigarette.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:13 PM) : 

A non-fashionista!? As refreshing as Orangina.


Blogger Marchel said ... (12:20 PM) : 

I love the skirt/boot combination. It takes a special girl to wear boyish combat boots and still look femenine and sweet. The pink skirt helps, though, I believe.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:31 PM) : 

Where did you get that picture of me circa 1989?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:11 PM) : 

her top is leather?? holy toledo! i love it! and i think it looks adorable with her skirt...

however, my A-type personality is dying for a pair of scissors to cut that damn string. i can't help it. i don't mind unfinished edges, but i hate long, hanging strings. especially, one. super. long. string. argh!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:40 PM) : 

Can we say Seattle, ca 1993? She does look comfy, though... And I have to admit, the aviators do flatter her face better than most.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:58 PM) : 

If i NEVER see another smoker on these pages it will be too soon.

That skirt is FABULOUS. The Doc Martens, not so much...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:57 PM) : 

you need to enlarge this photo to really appreciate the subtleties of her outfit. for me it's the pink nail polish that adds that special something. beautifully observed, sart - as always.


Blogger said ... (3:39 PM) : 

I think the outfit is very interesting here, but I don't like the pose, the cigarette, the drink, the background, those boots... Too messy, grungy... Not a fan...


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:42 PM) : 

Her attitude makes the outfit and the photograph.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:19 PM) : 

orangina.. MMM>


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:00 PM) : 

She makes an almost "foo-foo" skirt look so badass! I love it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:41 PM) : 

this photo makes me laugh. she doesn't care.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:04 PM) : 

This does absolutely nothing for me. She looks disheveled and seriously sloppy. Perhaps I just don't get it. Perhaps the beauty and ingeniousness of her look is best perceived in person. I suppose there is meant to be a juxtaposition of tender and tough, glam and grunge. Then again if the observer must expend such energy to "interpret" the message, perhaps the message isn't being executed as well as it could.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:20 PM) : 

I wasn't impressed with this combo at first glance. But then I looked closer and noticed her beaded bracelets and fuchsia nails. Ah ha! She's a split personality - ballerina/punk princess.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:54 PM) : 

I dunno. Comments here are saying that this is old news, but maybe, by now, this grunge look can be said to be classic.

I love black t-shirts that have something different and interesting happening about them. I wish I could make out exactly what this one's made of and what's happening at the neckline.


Blogger Laurenn said ... (12:30 AM) : 

People object to the "cliche"-ness of her sweet skirt and combat boots, saying that it's unoriginal and overdone. On the other hand, a skirt and sandals could be seen as just as overdone. I say at least she rocks it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:12 AM) : 

If I may add something to the "explore new places" thing, people shot in Hyeres were Parisian people just gone south, not people actually from Hyeres... That changes a lot!

Anyway, I love her style!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:17 AM) : 

I think any photograph you take will come out brilliantly, however, this outfit just does not do it! Average Jane with hot feet.


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

This shot is a great example of what I try to tell all my friends: beware of black shoes (regardless whether it's a pair of boots like these Doc Martens or any other sort of footwear) on naked skin unless you are really tanned. Otherwise the contrast of colour is too hard, at least in my humble opinion.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:39 AM) : 

i love your taste in style because you don't decide if an outfit is considered "fashionable" based on strict criteria. fashion is supposed to be imaginative and free.

love her docs and the pink skirt - it seems like it would be too much of a contradictory combo, but it's actually quite well-put together.


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:55 PM) : 

We have sweet utility here. Glad to see that comfortable shoes are being worn and that they contrast nicely with the femininity of the details on the skirt and shirt. The accessories are tres chic, as well.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:15 PM) : 

Oh, those naughty French, smoking at medical school! I imagine her saying, "I choose a shorter life that is filled with pleasure," [said with careless one-shouldered shrug]. I am way, way, way anti-smoking (heart disease also destroys the lives of everyone who loved the smoker) but the insouciant coolness of that photo almost makes me forgive the media for making smoking cool. Almost. -victoria


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:16 PM) : 

It is amusing that so many are quick to judge a non-fashionista on smoking, yet when there are images of the tall, skinny and well-heeled/labeled, smoking is acceptable.

I think it is a great image of a normal human, looking comfortable.


Blogger flyboy said ... (12:30 AM) : 

it's interesting to see all the reactions for this photo, guess that's what makes this shot so interesting... really stands out from all the photos with nice postures, fashionable dressing...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:23 AM) : 

When I grow up can I be her?
That is sooo awsome.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:02 PM) : 

I love this picture for many reasons: the careless attitude that is not normally characteristic of a med school student, the aviator sunglasses which I never leave my house without, the orangina... the list goes on. Get over the cigarette people!!! take the log out of your eye before you search for the needle in others..... plus its France!!!!!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:36 PM) : 

I think this kind of free mixtie style is always work,especially in Paris,btw,the girl is wearing Ann Demeulemeester combat boots,not Doc Mar.


Blogger Minnie said ... (11:29 AM) : 

oh i just love it


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:15 AM) : 

I think what Sart captured in the photo is the lovely air about her. The stare, the cigarette at med school, the orangina and the boots are lovely accompaniments also.
