On the Street......In the Mix, NYC

I love this look.
Tweedy herringbone, navy dots, leather, a touch of fur and a shock of color.
I love that she uses so many elements of design: color, pattern, texture, proportion.
I also love that a man can be just as inspired by this as a woman.

It is a lot nicer than what we wear in America isn't it?
No jeans or sloppy t-shirts!


Blogger Manja said ... (9:36 AM) : 

Pure love! This is something I would totally wear...I like her style a lot!


Blogger Tony Post No Bills | Washington DC said ... (9:37 AM) : 

Its good to see you back in NYC. I love the hint of color and the way she mixes multiple colors very well.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:45 AM) : 

I am so happy you are back in NYC. I love the photos from Milano and Roma and Sweden, but there is something about that City vibe. Glad to have you back.


Blogger James Jean said ... (9:52 AM) : 

Hell yea i'm inspired. I love mixing patterns and color so this is right up my alley. Another great find Sart!


Blogger Mai said ... (10:02 AM) : 

awesome look! i love her shoes


Blogger hc said ... (10:22 AM) : 

too cerebral. i want to see the idea, not the thought process.

each piece on it's own is brilliant, save the hat. once assembled though, it gets too busy. the red splash is haute, but it's placement looks entirely contrived.


Blogger Carlene said ... (10:24 AM) : 

Miss Frugally, this photo was taken in NYC!


Blogger Justine said ... (10:28 AM) : 

amazing :)


Blogger Ivy Lane said ... (10:36 AM) : 

Beautiful shot! love the lighting...and she looks fantastic! I love all the layers, but it is not bulky...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:40 AM) : 

The hat! Is there another that would pull this outfit off with such a funny twist, and still keep it together?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:40 AM) : 

is this a fedora or trilby hat? she looks fantastic!


Blogger ashley said ... (10:53 AM) : 

um love this. she totally nailed it.


Blogger ana villanueva said ... (10:58 AM) : 

ooooh! me encanta, podría ser yo pensando en mi imagen (encima que no traduzco lo lio más jajaja)

I agree, this is wonderful.


Blogger Yoli said ... (11:14 AM) : 

I absolutely love the shoes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:15 AM) : 

So beautiful! Everything just makes perfect sense, which is how great style should be defined. Her intelligent smile tops it off beautifully. You know she knows.


Blogger Welcome said ... (11:18 AM) : 

Definitely a special look love the hat really cool!


Blogger LC said ... (11:20 AM) : 

everything is great- leather with a fur collar is something i have been chasing for awhile. i think that hat is what really completes the look though!


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:20 AM) : 

This look totally inspires a whole wardrobe of outfits..thank you


Blogger Sartorial Vancouver said ... (11:23 AM) : 


It is an inspirational look. I love how she also uses the elements of good taste and style.

Best - Charles

Really beautiful... Impish smile. =) So cute!


Blogger beths said ... (11:32 AM) : 

I love the colors, patterns, and proportions, but the fur is raggedy, and skirt and blouse both could use an iron.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:42 AM) : 

I used to dress like this in college in London in the 90s so this photo makes me smile. Her hat is great and i love the splash of red - that and her happy face make the whole outfit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:49 AM) : 

You have such an eye for details - the second shot is art!


Blogger Karen said ... (11:58 AM) : 

I like it too.


Blogger diane said ... (12:01 PM) : 

Something about this look is a little too "swiss alps nanny", maybe it's the hat. Love the shoes. Wish I could see the guy behind her better.


Blogger secondvurss said ... (12:04 PM) : 

color and texture are great. love the hat...


Blogger Haiku runner said ... (12:08 PM) : 

Love her style! I like the different textures and patterns! Nice hat too!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:10 PM) : 

So interesting. That pop of red makes this look a bit whimsical. Like she didn't over-think it, it's just natural.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:53 PM) : 

don't like the hat with this outfit which is girlish but the hat is matronly looking


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:53 PM) : 

Really cool style, love it!

Mix and match that seems like the pieces are effortlessly put together. Thank you for showing photos of people who dress up well and therefore, providing us the inspiration. I'm so impress by your keen eye for details.

This look can inspire everyone! Perfect mix!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:55 PM) : 

Love it! Great to see people having fun with fashion, creating a character to be for the day – and what is wrong with "swiss alps nanny"? Agree with (almost) everyone: it's all about the hat.


Blogger aimee said ... (4:54 PM) : 

pretty. must be indoors affair it's freezing outside.

This is one of my favourite posts of yours recently.
I really like mixed prints, patterns and textures when done well. And this is the epitome of done well.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:04 PM) : 



Blogger Lily said ... (6:09 PM) : 

I love it! The mix of the colours and the prints and the textures is fabulous.


Blogger Rita said ... (6:14 PM) : 

Wow! This is one of my favorite looks ever, so inspiring!


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (6:19 PM) : 

These pics look wonderful!!

And this woman looks wonderful as well. Where in NYC is this taken?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:24 PM) : 

For me, it's the skirt not the hat. But really it's the whole thing not one piece. She has a smile like the Cheshire Cat - she KNOWS whatever she knows....I am inspired.


Blogger junglesiren said ... (6:24 PM) : 

Her style is a perfect mix of masculine and feminine. A bit quirky. Comfortable without being too casual. And not a bit concerned with what's "in fashion", I especially love that.

And she's so pretty!


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

She's fab. Not many people can pull this look off. She does.


Blogger Shani said ... (6:48 PM) : 

I love the way that the red just peeks out enough to give the outfit a pop.


Blogger Rafe Totengco said ... (6:55 PM) : 

I love the mix of patterns and texture! That hint of red is a nice shot of color. It's all very nonchalant and has that thrown together at the last minute kind of attitude.


Blogger sarahbereza said ... (7:29 PM) : 

beautiful! I usually like most of what I see on this site, but this is a step above...I not sure what it is about it though....


Blogger Alexandra said ... (7:54 PM) : 

great shot...the layers make the outfit amazing...she looks inspiring indeed...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:28 PM) : 

If I dressed like this I would look sad and silly--it's not for everyone-- but on her this look is terrific. Color and texture is excellent--and I love the peek of red sweater. Beautiful tights and wonderful boots.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:59 PM) : 

She's has taken the world's most beautiful colors - and combined them all in a stunning way.


Blogger John B Pritchett said ... (10:15 PM) : 

Wonderful! One of the best looks I've seen.

That's cool!


Blogger Joy said ... (3:37 AM) : 

The textures, patterns and colors all result in total eye candy. She looks fabulous..why can't Californian girls dress this way?!


Blogger About Me said ... (3:47 AM) : 

i love the tweed and polka dots. the hint of red is awesome too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:54 AM) : 

God, this women is a style visionary. I would have thought to mix up all these patterns. Genius.

You are so right, she looks really trendy yet comfy. Love how she combines differnt patterns and colours...the effect is fantastic. Great shot!


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

I wish I had imagination and sense of fashion to make things work like this and pull it of the way she does!


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:12 AM) : 

I love that you said a man could be inspired by this look. It made me feel better about having felt inspired by this look.

The skirt is really, really great. I love her shoes too. I love masculine inspired looks on very feminine forms.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:59 AM) : 

i am in love! who is she!


Blogger Jazzbuff630 said ... (9:07 AM) : 

She's adorable.


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:18 AM) : 

I always admired those kind of people who can mix all the patterns and look good.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:13 AM) : 

I am just crazy for this outfit. I keep coming back to it!!


Blogger Kits said ... (12:33 PM) : 

I am coming back to your blog after ages. Great shot and she looks stunning with the right mix of course


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:55 PM) : 

She takes a good picture, sweet, demure pose. Love the close up where you can see all the textures, prints and details. To elimate some of the bulk in the waist area it would've been better if she were wearing pants with a wider waistband. Also this could be improved if the bag were more structured and the fur was less unkempt. Btw old lady shoes just aren't attractive.


Blogger cosmic visions said ... (2:30 PM) : 

I love this, its so pretty. Easy to pull off and low-key and adorable!


Blogger phoenix a. stepinac said ... (3:51 PM) : 

This is the kind of girl I could get wasted on Boone's Farm with...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:20 PM) : 

This girl is a cutey to boot! I like your perspective and use of the available lighting--it does not overpower, the light is an accessory that accentuates her look. She seems dark, smoky and sexy (sly smile!)while the shock of red sweater adds a jolt. Bomb genius, Sart!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:01 PM) : 

did she make that hat?


Blogger Joy Mars said ... (10:35 PM) : 

My thought: Who needs a relationship when your clothes are so satisfying?

beautiful, I love it when a keen sense of personal style overcomes the usual fashionista looks.

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

I can't get over this outfit.
I have purposely gone to look at it every day since it has been posted - it has reminded me to add just a little pop of color to seemingly drab outfits, and inspired me to play with textures and patterns
Thanks for the inspiration!


Blogger MANICPROJECT said ... (4:42 PM) : 

I actually love the lighting of this photo
