On the Street......Dots or Spots, Milano

Blogger Soren Lorensen said ... (9:48 AM) : 

the only time i've ever seen spots look quite so dignified, perhaps the person more than the garment itself. How fun.


Blogger Laura said ... (9:50 AM) : 

very chic and her hair


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:00 AM) : 

She's like an Italian Suze Orman!

With better clothes.


Blogger Anna said ... (10:02 AM) :

Love the Marni aesthetic of this woman. I mention this only because she makes me think of Suze Orman in Marni! Now that's a fashion moment!


Blogger indigo warrior said ... (10:59 AM) : 

I really like the structure of her top/jacket. Very nice. It's also nice to see someone embrace the gray hair. There's no need to worship at the altar of youth. Your own or someone else's.

the spirit of the sixties is back!!

Her hair is really so beautiful...i love the all grey look, i've been trying to talk my friends who are all grey to just go for it! what great inspiration... Dolly Varden

Marimekko and very Harvard Sq cerca 1967


Blogger ingefaer said ... (1:07 PM) : 

very Merimekko.....great shape - top and hair


Blogger Joy Mars said ... (1:21 PM) : 

I love everything she's wearing --- except the purse.

I've seen bags like this one before on this site and always thought their poofy silhouette wrecked every outfit they were paired with.

An angular purse as a contrasting geometry with the op art circles motif and her hair would have been perfect.

In my opinion. But would Sart see it as too Nordstrom?


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:21 PM) : 

She strikes such an elegant this look!


Blogger Pret a Porter P said ... (1:41 PM) : 

im going to have to agree with a previous commentor. she does look like suze orman, but with much better style!

Can she even afford any of this?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:25 PM) : 

she looks like she's having fun with it - nice.


Blogger Matthew Spade said ... (3:29 PM) : 

wonderful hair, grey at its best


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:45 PM) : 

Fabulous, love the combination of the necklace/spotty top - really shouldn't work but it does.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:13 PM) : 

And look at that smile...she knows she looks FABULOUS! I REALLY want the spotted blouse/jacket! It’s divine.


Anonymous gina said ... (4:29 PM) : 

Im in love with the bag she is holding! How cute!!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:48 PM) : 

love this... looks like a marni style necklace


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (5:07 PM) : 

This is such a beautiful coat!


Blogger beths said ... (5:14 PM) : 

Love seeing this fifties moderne circle print on clothing. She wears it well, and how does she get her hair to DO that?


Blogger NaT said ... (5:22 PM) : 

She´s bold!! Love the print, love the necklace, love the bag... All great!


Blogger CHICMUSEMAG said ... (5:36 PM) : 

style adores her. love it

loving the


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:16 PM) : 

Wow!! I love how she styled her hair!! What caught my attention almost instantly though i how her handbag isnt small like most women have...its actually pretty big and she carries it like carrying a carry-on at the airport!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:29 PM) : 

Where to start?!? Love the pattern in the jacket/top. I just saw a Rex Ray exhibit so the oval cutouts remind me of that. The bold necklace is perfect and I do like the softness of the bag. Now, the hair. The cut is great, the style dramatic and the color works on her. I would love it if I looked good in what is now my natural color, but my hairdresser and I think not. Because my skin is very fair and I have blue eyes with light brows I would fade away like Casper the little ghost. That's why not everyone can/or will go grey even though they might want to. Sometimes a statement just isn't worth it.


Blogger LRB said ... (6:46 PM) : 

Such a chic modern day Mrs. Robinson!


Anonymous jo said ... (11:12 PM) : 

love the watch, actually.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:34 AM) : 

I just love how you constantly photograph people who look happy, and full of vigor. It's a nice addition to my morning, thanks sart!


Blogger brandt said ... (1:07 AM) : 

It's very "era specific"!
I almost feel like there's a matching skirt and go-go boots somewhere close by.
However she wears it well and is in great shape, as the large dots might not work on a larger frame.
Love the natural grey hair-wish more women would allow their own to go.


Blogger anu said ... (2:42 AM) : 

Hah:) I thought the jacket looked very Marimekko-like. Glad someboby else verified this.

Dots. "Spots" has a negative connotation.

Elegant yet very fashion forward older woman. Gorgeous. Her hair's amazing, too!

Circles are so in right now. As is that semi-flock of seagulls hair.

Everything just matches! The color of her hair with the clothes and even the wether on the backgound

love dots, this lady especially makes them look chic instead of cute

letting the hair how it really has given a hole fresh style for this outfit. for shure, a cool mum.


Blogger Patricia said ... (11:49 PM) : 

i debated that bag awhile back -- it's the softest leather, so you have to clutch it like that so all its contents don't completely weigh it down like a bowling ball!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:04 AM) : 

Is that Marimekko shirt?


Blogger Hawa said ... (4:47 AM) : 

i actually love everything about her...and i like how the soft clutch counter balances the geometry of her top,necklace and hair...i like how i can look at a person so different from myself in age but still feel inspired to create my own version of this look!


Blogger Jen Laceda | Milk Guides said ... (10:22 AM) : 

I don't want to be afraid of gray, like her!


Blogger clerk said ... (11:24 AM) : 

Ok, THIS is what I want to be when I grow up!


Anonymous Gabrielle said ... (11:44 AM) : 

like Jenny said, love the hair. I like seeing women keep their natural hair colour. Who says grey and white can't be sexy?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:14 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:13 PM) : 

it's a marni jacket. and i agree with previous commenters, she is the spitting image of suze orman! suze's look works for suze, i think, but this is an option she could perhaps try? i hope one of her handlers or assistants reads the sart and sends her a link. love the hair on this lady, too. she's so quintessentially italian. elegant, refined, even with the marni quirkiness.


Blogger Kenyatte said ... (4:15 PM) : 

Strange as it might sound....she kinda looks like Suzy Orman..

Stunning! [Suze Yes.]


Blogger B3PA said ... (6:37 PM) : 

i was looking at your first photos..maybe now you are more interested in fashion or is only a kind of personal growth?


Anonymous Beata said ... (8:23 PM) : 

elegant, natural and comfortable in her own skin


Blogger seawallrunner said ... (9:55 PM) : 

she is vibrant, confident, elegant. A wonderful moment.

As for her sense of fashion - right on the mark: I noticed the person first, and the clothing second. The clothing only enhances the beautiful person wearing it, does not overpower her.

what a great look.


Blogger Starck Mad said ... (11:26 PM) : 

This is SO cute! I totally thought of Suze Orman saying 'my little puppies.....the best jackets, can be Milan!'

She looks beautiful! Just everything works, wonderful.

Ostrich takes its head out of the sand, ruffles its feathers...and dons dots for daytime drama.

Dots! No, no... spots! No... Oh, I give up! Either way she looks amazing. Love the necklace - I'm surprised no one's commented on it yet.


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

the sexiest look is honesty. just wear your attitude. seek ye first the right attitude for you, and wear it. and all these things would be added unto you.

I was looking for inspiration and did a search of Marni here and voila.
She is consistent in her taste!

Nice jacket/blouse. And she looks good in the haircut. However...the bag might be practical but it wasnt my cup of tea... (I also would have used a scarf instead of the necklace...) -but thats me! ;-)

Nice looking and good dress to u.


Blogger Kathleen said ... (7:17 AM) : 

Marimekko again! Well, it is the perfect time to wear our lovely cotton Marimekko tops and dresses! I wish more Americans owned and wore Marimekko clothing in addition to just purchasing the fabric. Their cotton clothing and knits are luxurious.

I love this ladies selection of a darker palate with this print, even though white pants would have been wonderful, especially with her choice of bold necklaces.

Her lovely kid leather clutch and dark pants are a perfect monochromatic match with her layered haircut and color.

Great background and lovely photograph Scott.
