On the Street....Pink & Grey, Paris

Comments on "On the Street....Pink & Grey, Paris"


Blogger Sabrina said ... (10:16 AM) : 

I really like that. It´s kinda classic and elegant. Perfect for a business day in Paris.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:21 AM) : 

I *love* the dusky colours with the richness of the leather. This is serious.


Blogger Dominica said ... (10:25 AM) : 

She looks really fab in those pastels, not an easy colour to pull off...I'm also in love with her earrings...
Great bag too, makes the look a bit more fierce ...

so pretty an soft.


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

It's a very pretty look, but this woman doesn't project a sweet, feminine image and I'd have liked to see her add an element that reflects her seeming ballsy confidence. Perhaps the sunglasses were meant to do that, but right now round glasses are too trendy to be meaningful.
Or could be she thought that the classic cut of her clothes--and the structured bag (Choo?)--were enough to offset the girlishness of the pink. To my eye, at least, the pink's in charge here. She needs a signal of "good bitch playing girly girl" to really make this work for her.
Great shot, though. And despite the seeming negativity of my comments (frankly, I'm seeing myself in her) I give her props for capturing my attention.

beautiful! I love her hair too.

Parisian flawless dressing.
Love it, so elegant and thoughtful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:33 AM) : 

i like the way how the end of her scarf blends with her trousers


Blogger so said ... (11:35 AM) : 

does it bother anyone else when people don't remove the labels from their scarves??

(it's a pet peeve of mine...that i just had to share) :)

ps: loving the new photo format!

The pinky ring... J'adore!


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

Great match indeed-
I totally love soft(pale)pink
And grey is always difficult to match with-so-Well done!
The bag and the earrings give a touch of fashion style-
The result is not fashion and not to classic, perfect balance!good*


Blogger Hemaly said ... (12:10 PM) : 

I desperately want that bag!


Blogger Cheltenhamdailyphoto said ... (12:13 PM) : 

OMG. She is Classic Woman. I love everything. The cut, the colours, the hair, the glasses, her 'way', and especially that bag, which I covet quite desperately.


Blogger "the girl who ate everything and didnt even burp" said ... (12:21 PM) : 

*whistles* That's a bold look! Love every of it!

so nice to see a Parisian sans cigarette.


Blogger diane said ... (12:33 PM) : 

Leave it to a french woman to wear heavenly pastels in a sea of black during winter. Bravo!


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

wow...such a great blend of colors, and i luv that pink overcoat! it's so hard to find really great warm winter coats...


Blogger thirty1seven said ... (1:08 PM) : 

I love the way she way able to pull off a mixture of textures. So pretty in pink and grey makes her look sweet yet gutsy by using strong accessories like her dark glasses and rich brown leather bag.

Its a combination not many could pull off but she did it flawlessly.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:12 PM) : 

Her style, and her hair are fabolous!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:24 PM) : 

i love her outfit! pure class and elegance!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:30 PM) : 

Money written all over her


Blogger liza101 said ... (1:39 PM) : 

pink and grey are a really strong combo, but I agree a darker grey would have created a bit more drama. Or perhaps if the scarf was a different fabric, a silk, it would break it up. Georgous proportions.

just a side note, do we really have to be on the phone all the time?


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (1:54 PM) : 

Perfect lady!!

When I'm 70, I want a woman like this.

Great, great shot, Scott!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:00 PM) :

Blogger T said ... (2:13 PM) : 

that pink and grey works out very well, she looks Important


Blogger Rita said ... (2:21 PM) : 

She looks effortlessly cool.


Blogger Jill said ... (2:57 PM) : 

I wish she had removed the the pink and gray.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:02 PM) : 

For Anonomous of 10:32:
Perhaps she is wearing fierce shoes, stiletto boots of black lacquer or leopard?


Blogger No said ... (3:02 PM) : 

gray and pink- what a sweet color combination.


Blogger Remah said ... (3:05 PM) : 

I love this combination! Her outfit is very chic!

Oui, she is charmante in the rose et gris. Les lunette du soleil {the sunglasses} trè chic.

She puts it together well, but get off the phone already. So annoying.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:29 PM) : 

I want to be her when I grow up.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:41 PM) : 

Sunglasses are by Chloé, the model is Myrte.
Love grey & pink together, as said before, it's very soft and elegant. But I think it's also Parisian charming that makes all the outfit work so well.


Blogger Rebecca Leão said ... (4:44 PM) : 

She's very beautiful and elegant, and I love her bag and coat! Fantastic shot, it looks like a fabulous moment! Congratulations... Rebecca


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:03 PM) : 

Gah! Why do people leave tags on scarves??? Otherwise I love the drape of the jacket. Looks v expensive.

Anon11:08, I think the sunglasses are Chloe.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:25 PM) : 

Gorgeous and luxurious. So rich and effortless looking. If there's one key to French dressing, it's that the outfit may have taken hours to pull together in front of the mirror, but it never looks like it did.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:14 PM) : 

i love that coat. the color in winter is unexpected but amazing


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:31 PM) : 

She's so riche, I just love it.

I don't like the bag, though. The hardware, specifically the rings, looks dated. Still, I'm nit-picking. The over all effect is smashing. I'm DYING to know what shoes she's wearing. I'm going to guess chocolate Louboutin flats with her pants EXACTLY the perfect length.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:41 PM) : 

anon: i bet the tag was deliberately left on.

luxe, i love the well ironed pants. i would never have picked them

however i think the slightly overstyled hair and not quite right sunglasses could be improved.

i just like all the ohsotouchable pastels


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

Nice... I miss Paris :)

very elegant, I love the coat


Blogger Laguna Beach Fogey said ... (8:58 PM) : 

Great photo, Sart. She's hot. Very much so! I love the soft pink of her coat and how it matches with her dark brown bag and glasses. But I'm fascinated by her beautiful hair. Wow!


Blogger Starck Mad said ... (9:40 PM) : 

Beautiful coat, with cloth covered buttons. And the gray scarf and pant look gorgeous.
The real star, is the woman herself.....she looks like such a star, without overtly flashy colors or cuts.
Tres Jolie


Blogger Doug said ... (10:11 PM) : 

Haha, this woman makes me laugh.. Although, I do like her Chloe sunglasses!


Blogger thwany said ... (10:17 PM) : 

first thing i noticed are the chloe sunglasses.


Blogger greyrabbitblog said ... (10:25 PM) : 

it doesn't look effortless... not that there's anything wrong with that. each piece matches another. i think she looks appropriately polished and expensive.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:48 PM) : 

i love her clothes, but the lips, hair, and sunglasses ruin the look for me. the lips should be something classic.....maroons, browns, etc. the hair should be up. and the glasses should be more boxy and BLACK

but the shot itself is fabulous

sart, youve captured her movement well. she could by any kind of a modern day woman


Blogger SparkleQueen said ... (12:04 AM) : 

Wow, love the pastel colors and that coat is just amazing. I like how the scarf has a complimentary color of blue and orange. Overall, she just looks Fabulous!


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

Does anyone know what brand the coat is? Im in love with it...


Blogger Tina Frey Designs said ... (12:55 AM) : 

I think all Parisian women seem to look quite lovely.

However, I do agree with the earlier comment about removing the label on the scarf! I thought I was the only one with this pet peeve! It sorts of distracts from the perfect look and quality of the fabrics and the outfit. It's like forgetting to take the label from the sleeve of an off-the-rack suit jacket. Even if the scarf is cashmere or has washing instructions, you should assume it is "dry clean only" and remove the label.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:59 AM) : 

Does anyone know the brand of that coat. Im in love with it...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:53 AM) : 

love lovelove this,
she looks unreal, so distinguished and sophisticated, love that scarf with the two colours looks brills!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:42 AM) : 

The combination of grey and soft pink is perfect.

The Problem is, the combnation is much to soft for her. Stronger colours would match her face and hair much better, and would give her a fresher appearance.
Same for accessoires.

One person already stated it, a silk scarve f.e., in her colours could break it.


Blogger Jenn said ... (3:43 AM) : 

Can anyone tell who her bag is by?? A previous commenter guessed Choo, but it doesn't look like it to me.


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

I agree with "Anonymous(first)" : the outfit is great but with more unexpected sunglasses (or none) it should have more personality. It seems to have been arranged by a professionnal stylist instead of the woman who wears it. Very nice shot.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:55 AM) : 

I liked the colour-combo (pale-pink, pale-grey and honey-yellow together with the darkbrown leather) however... I didn't like the buttons on the coat; they should have been another colour or material and I also think (sorry!) that the complete look was a bit too much 'rich housewife out shopping'. In other words, I didnt find the look particulary interesting or inspiring. But like I said, nice colours though. And I would not say no to that nice soft leather bag... :-)


Blogger Hilda said ... (7:24 AM) : 

I've always liked pink and gray, even as a kid. As I got older though, I thought it was too cute to pull off well. Nice to see the combination in a smart-looking outfit. Thank you.


Blogger Holden said ... (7:56 AM) : 

Clearly from this shot, it's not what colours one wears, but how it is worn.

I'm not a fan of pink and when I do wear the colour, it is only with hesitation first, then reluctance. But I've always loved seeing grey and pink together.

This lady accented the cool pink and grey with a warm touch of chocolate brown. (=

Personal p.o.v: While I've been seeing texture, patterns, layers, cuts and accents more on your site nowadays, the colours on this lady (that caught your eye) is a breath of fresh air; maybe it's because I respond stronger to colours and that I've been waiting for something lighter amidst the heavy and sombre tones of winter. Thank you.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:05 AM) : 

She reminds me of Jemima Khan. The look would've worked with a grey, a camel or even a black coat imo: yet this pale pink (just as pale icey blue) makes it stand out. Love the two-tone scarf.

not to be contrarian, but I actually like it that she left on the label. It adds a bit of nonchalance - just like the uncombed curls. Otherwise the total look becomes too precious.


Blogger J.A.F. said ... (8:27 AM) : 



Blogger nsk said ... (8:32 AM) : 

Fully agree with liza101.

Also, I'd say she needs something dark - in addition to the bag and the sunglasses - to offset the sea of light pink and light gray. The tan scarf (is that a part of the gray one) doesn't help anything. A black shirt or darker gray pants would look good.

On the other hand, her complexion is dark enough to draw attention to her face, and away from her generally-light-colored outfit.


Blogger Evelyn said ... (8:52 AM) : 

Parisian has their inborn fashion sense to get dressed as easy as turning one's hand over. But, always get stunning outfit!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:02 AM) : 

That's so charming! Busy women will always be a good content for a picture =)

She is soo chic and fabulous. The colors are so pretty.

very rich looking... in a good way.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:01 PM) : 

I think there's a Chanel paper-bag on her shoulder!


Blogger Rebeca Muñoz López said ... (7:12 PM) : 

I like the combination, is very sweet and chic.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:50 PM) : 

No, I second that emotion. Everything about her look is perfect...except that she left the label on her scarf. And unfortunately for me, that's the first thing I noticed! But she still seems like a cool lady.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:09 AM) : 

Sorry guys, but this beautiful women is not a "Parisienne", she is the perfect incarnation of the Milanese women, tourist in Paris.

Those colors, those hairs and the sunny complexion is typical from the italians classic women of north of Italy. Please check your classics!
Anyway, she is sexy.

money can buy a stylist, but not common sense!
oh... yes, a classic outfit.

if it's the girl I know, she looks like her..she always wore this beautiful colors, but her style is much better!!!!

gotta ask her:)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:39 PM) : 

She looks beautiful - if a little tango'd - I'm another who loves the bag, and the coat looks like a beautifully soft and slouchy take on a classic.

However I'm surprised by all the comments about the scarf label...I always leave mine on...never knew I was inadvertently offending so many fashionatas!

Perfection. Each item is nice but together its very well thought out. The tones of pink and grey are perfectly combined.

I was shying away from pink coats but I have been shown the way!

Blogger petite and dynamite said ... (1:15 PM) : 

There really isn't much that's better than pink and gray = so flattering on every skin tone.. So classic. I have a pink Duster coat that's 100 years old from Calvin Klein, with a pair of fabulous gloves and a gray scarf I feel like a million bucks in it..

Oh la la, the drama; she could be ordering a pizza for all we know and she just looks great doing it. I hate cell phones, even though I bet Agnelli had one next to his cigarette case.

Wow - I look at this and wonder, what's she talkin' about?

woow, it´s amazing xP


Blogger entasis said ... (10:44 PM) : 

very nice color combo. something for women to consider. as a man, not in my bag of goodies. but what i do wear often is a perennial favorite: grey and brown. i remember many years ago GQ published (a letter I believe) and noted that grey & brown were "ok" and that the Duke of Windsor make i "acceptable". Since then it's been in my arsenal. here is think is another complementary color set.


Blogger Esther Zamorano said ... (5:14 PM) : 

Is very pinkchic!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:18 AM) : 

The scarf she is wearing looks the same as the one on the man on Bowery (NYC) in the picture below..although he is wearing his sans tag. The same grey on one side, beige on the other? Just an observation.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:35 AM) : 

Love her look! She looks like money. My only criticism is that the coat is for spring, not winter. It doesn't even have lining. More power to her if she can look that good and not freeze her baguettes off.
