More shots in Brooklyn, please!

Love the simplicity of this outfit, perfect!


Blogger James Jean said ... (9:30 AM) : 

Like they always say, a tree (and this lovely flower in front of us) grows in Brooklyn


Anonymous Line said ... (9:31 AM) : 

I am in love with the peace sign, I´ve got to get me one of those :)

Very pretty picture!


Blogger Soren Lorensen said ... (9:35 AM) : 

simple and clean but still gets the personality across.


Blogger ana said ... (9:47 AM) : 

Nice Dress! and her sandals too


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (9:48 AM) : 

Ah, simple & this pic!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:49 AM) : 

she's lovely but i love even more the jars filled with candy behind her in that window display...makes this pic look a little bit more mysterious ....


Blogger Jonah said ... (9:50 AM) : 

nice, i love the top-converted-to-dress =]
but i think it'll be even more striking if there's white casual shorts peeking out as well?


Blogger lee said ... (9:53 AM) : 

absolutely stunning! the light, the outfit, the girl, the expression. So serene.

She looks perfectly lovely. The peace-sign necklace looks great with that dress and her simple flat sandals complete the outfit. Effortless chic.


Blogger amalie said ... (10:05 AM) : 

i like it! so beautiful, simple and relaxed ... i like her necklace too . :)

Stylish and functional, just perfect for a Tuesday morning.
Love her presence!


Blogger Jakes on Nassau said ... (10:10 AM) : 

Simple yet beautiful. She knows her "look" well.


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:11 AM) : 

so simple. so beautiful.


Blogger Stephanie Clayton said ... (10:16 AM) : 

never underestimate the power of stylish simplicity. monochrome dressing in a simple silhouette plus a statement piece (her necklace) equals perfection!

without the necklace, the ensemble might be too plain.

she's got it figured out!


Blogger qiwy said ... (10:19 AM) : 

...Peace & Love



Blogger George A. said ... (10:21 AM) : 

Since her shoulders are so broad I don't know if this is exactly the right look. I do love the accessories though!


Anonymous sher said ... (10:25 AM) : 

innocent look yet very beautiful. love it

amazing legs. over suede fringe.


Blogger Oh Dear Charlotte said ... (10:35 AM) : 

loooooooooove this shade on her skin tone!!!!


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:36 AM) : 

Yes a pretty girl, well put together, simple composition and interesting scenery. But what of those yellow hammer pants in the background? Did you try to catch him too or did he happen by?


Anonymous Debs said ... (10:46 AM) : 

The colour composition carried by the morning light is absolutely gorgeous. She's soft and fresh - the rock candies are waiting...


Blogger Barima said ... (10:50 AM) : 

Lovely shot. The jars in the window add a lovely bit of detailed interest to the overall composition. And she is lovely - her ease really completes the photo


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:54 AM) : 


Fort Greene is a best kept secret for its superbly understated chic ...

she looks great.. but the guy with the yellow pants in the background kinda steals her thunder, i want to see his outfit up close too!

Terrific photo.
Lovely girl. The sunlight in the shopwindow on the colorful jars - very interesting and evocative!
You are a very good photographer.
I like it when your personal comments accompany the shots.


Blogger Lauren said ... (11:47 AM) : 

She's lovely, but I think it's the whole photo I love more than just the outfit.


Blogger Brian said ... (11:47 AM) : 

Peace sign, Roman sandals, shapeless dress...way to Mary Kate & Ashley for me.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:53 AM) : 

That's my former high school(Brooklyn Tech) in the background, and one of my favorite stores, Carol's Daughter, to the side. Go BK!


Blogger FASHION CHALET said ... (11:54 AM) : 

I have those exact-same sandals :) cute outfit!!



Blogger charlotte elizabeth said ... (11:56 AM) : 

i hope velvet chokers are right behind the peace jewellery.. like actually.


Blogger Ashley said ... (12:15 PM) : 

Absolutely stunning photo. I think I like the photo itself better than what she's wearing...although I do like her sandals. She appears very calm.


Anonymous ashlee said ... (12:21 PM) : 

simple and pretty. peace signs always add a nice detail


Blogger thimbles and gingham said ... (12:24 PM) : 

she looks simple and fresh. i love her shoes.

I never commented here, no matter how much I loved the people, the shot, or the outfit. but this time, I find the person, the outfit, the photo, the background, all, stunning. I'm just in love right now.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:47 PM) : 

Am I the only one who finds it funny when people pose at attention for these photos?


Blogger InStudio Blog said ... (12:48 PM) : 

I've got that dress but not those legs. She's pretty. Nice shot too - love the light and location.

Blogger Octavia Morris said ... (4:46 PM) : 

pREtty... beautiful composure... but the sweetie jars, smudged windows and the yellow trousered billy paul cruiser in the background are what really do it for me


Anonymous Nan said ... (4:50 PM) : 

This is wonderful. She's somberly beautiful and strong, and I love the milieu with the painterly light on that wonderful window.


Blogger elisesophie said ... (5:08 PM) : 

Oh, I used to have one of those peace-sign necklaces! I don't know where it is now, and I miss it a lot!!

great shot - i like the back lighting.

the whole image is very real, but yet very magical.

really nice aesthetic.

Blogger The Fashionstar said ... (5:41 PM) : 

I usually like dresses like this but for some really I don't like this at all. Maybe it's the color or maybe I wish she had on a belt or perhaps her hair could be down. Idk it just looks unfinished to me.

Oh I have those sandals and adore them, however, the outfit doesn't really inspire me.

i love the necklace and the shoes. the dress colour is amazing, but i think there is a little disconnect between the accessories and the dress. maybe its the shoulders. but girlfriend is beautiful and the lighting is stunning. it works.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:11 PM) : 

Look at the sunlight behind her and all of the colors around her. It brings to life the simplicity of her pose and outfit... beautiful and natural!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:18 PM) : 

It's a beautiful shot. The tunic is nice but it needs shorts or pants. Not a fan of the peace sign necklace.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:40 PM) : 

I love the feel of this picture!
Late afternoon; lazy summer day . . . her shadow moving on the pavement; the light magnifying every imperfection on the antique window displaying old fashioned candy jars. And her . . . simple and serene; intently looking at you . . .
Fantastic Sart!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:43 PM) : 

i love this pic and i LOVE that you are in Brooklyn-- especially in Ft. Greene as opposed to Williamsburg or something. What a great, great neighborhood and a really great picture. Keep 'em coming! and to the comment of the jars of candy; I'm pretty sure that is soap in those jars from Carol's Daughter.

very natural it compliments the dress, accessories and the sandals.


Blogger Pictures on Page said ... (9:41 PM) : 

Stylishly simple! I love it. Come to Brooklyn more often. Oh, and let's not ignore the man in the lime green pants in the background, awesome.


Blogger erin nuts said ... (9:43 PM) : 

I feel like lately I'm seeing looks on here that have a more "trendy" vibe. This photo is STUNNING, but from a style standpoint it makes me feel similar to the recent Sao Paolo pic with the flannel shirt dress...very cute, nice and simple, but much less intriguing than the usual Sart fare - anyone could put it together. I like simple, but simple can still be fascinating, and this doesn't really do that.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:48 PM) : 

I see an echo.... her strong shoulders and the straight (shapeless) silhouette of the dress echoed in the candy jars in the window... A beautiful woman who unfortunately looks unfinished and boxy here, a little heel or a little legging could have saved the moment.


Blogger a reference said ... (10:18 PM) : 

i'm so glad you're exploring more areas of nyc! i mean i love soho...but this is nice...and there is good style on the upper east...just saying!


Blogger Laura Gerencser said ... (10:29 PM) : 



Blogger Unknown said ... (10:32 PM) : 

this 'tenda roni' looks like she has fallen into the 1989 streets of Brooklyn. The man behind her is well suited for a Bobby Brown video, the bright sun-rayed leaves remind me of my 'back to school' days in junior school, and the red, exposed brick with the stained window glass just top it right off.

"The truth about Roni, she’s a sweet little girl
You could treat her real nice and hold her tight
Only tender ronis can give special love
A special kind of love that makes you feel good inside."

I really love you photos S!! And the outfit on this girl is so simple and sweet. And I love the peace necklace. Have a wonderful day! :)


Anonymous Jill Adams said ... (7:14 AM) : 

I rarely comment on this blog (it all feels so... adoring), but this is a truly beautiful photo. Someone asked if the guy in the yellow pants is 'intentional' - probably not, it doesn't feel posed, but that's what makes the shot.

I agree with Ashley: it's the photo itself, more than the elements of her outfit (altho it's all very nice) - it's the way she's standing so serious yet serenely, and then your eye goes to the light in the tree and the yellow in his trousers and the line of whatever it is in the jars.. and comes back to this mysterious girl, in the center.
Timeless. It's part posed, true, but it's also the magical accident of chance.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:51 AM) : 

this shot is beautiful b/c of the light, but the woman's ensemble itself is hohum and not inspiring to me.

go down to Red Hook...still in Bkln to satisfy the peeps who want Bklyn shots - but more 'underground'/ progressive and less like a wannabe williamsburg. i bet you'll find a truly inspirational shot or two there.



Anonymous Stoffer Ganes said ... (10:10 AM) : 

Wow, what a beautiful picture - really Hopper'esque!


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:14 AM) : 

This is incredibly well done, both from her end as well as Sart's ability to work with the light; harsh as it was. This is probably one of my favorite photos. Simply beautiful.

Anonymous Shadow And Act said ... (12:25 PM) : 

Wow. I live in the Fort Greene area of Brooklyn. I wish I ran into more women like her on my daily travels around the neighborhood :o)

Maybe there's an unexplored business model for you - a kind of dating site, featuring the people you shoot. "If you'd like to contact Sheri, click here now" or something like that.

I kid, I kid...

why is everyone going ga-ga over this outfit? The dress is an awkward shape and those peace sign necklaces are sold everywhere...

if there's anything to love about this photograph, it's the photograph itself. the lighting is phenomenal, and love the soap jars in the background. the girl, despite her outfit, is beautiful.

Great photo, I love Fort Greene! This is by Carol's Daughter by Fort Greene Park. She is BEAUTIFUL!


Blogger hippie_cyndi said ... (6:48 PM) : 

the saying cloths don't make the man/woman applies here. What makes it interesting isn't so much what she's wearing, but how the lady comes across in it.


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:37 PM) : 

It's very much a Lisa/Zoe Bonet outfit. And it seems to fit this lass just fine!


Blogger Unknown said ... (2:41 PM) : 

Nice, but this look always reminds me of a woman wearing one of my shirts (mans shirt) around the house. Like she's trying to be casual and a bit sexy. Appropriate for the apartment, not so much for the street. But then, I'm a bit of a prude I suppose.

I agree, with Nora, more in Brooklyn, especially in Fort Greene/Clinton Hill, the lightening at dusk is always lovely...and the store behind the woman is Carol's Daughter...well the original. Wonderful wonderful products for anyone who loves things that smell good and to have those smells on them...and it just so happens that my Mom's friend started the place in her brownstone basement...its a wonderful place to shop, highly recommend.

Ahhhh Brooklyn-I miss it so. This is a lovely picture. I was born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island but BK was my stomping grounds. I loved and still love the different looks-culture. I am now here in Charlotte, NC. I used to sit outside my friends shop which used to be on Vanderbilt at times and just conversate and people watch.
