Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:31 AM) : 

This is such a beautiful girl and outfit. It reminds me so much of an equally beautiful Michelle Williams on the red carpet I guess a few years ago now, in a yellow dress (?Vera Wang), red lipstick and loose low chignon. She copped a bit of flack but she really opened my eyes to yellow.

Chloe - apropos parasols and umbrellas, they're quite common here in Sydney during summer. Just do it!


Blogger ANIK said ... (9:31 AM) : 

So pretty!


Blogger Karen said ... (9:33 AM) : 

I love the parasol, adds a nice touch to her vintage ensemble. :D


Blogger ec said ... (9:40 AM) : 

That's Kristen Minksy of The Minksy Sisters

She's a sweetheart in real life too!


Blogger May Kasahara said ... (9:45 AM) : 

I wish I could've seen all the attendees at this years event. everyone is always so stunning * * *


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

those little white gloves are killing delicate.

to me she looks sort of like a Toulouse Lautrec painting, because of the eyes, the red lip, the hair, and the shoae she is making.


Blogger Carmen Patricia said ... (10:01 AM) : 

Wow - this is gorgeous! I love everything about it - the delicate gloves, the look in her eye, the red lips and of course the great color of her dress.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:09 AM) : 

Like bourgeois madame.
Nice yellow dress with Japanese classical umbrella.


Blogger Celia said ... (10:11 AM) : 

her hair! i love her hair!!


Blogger linda said ... (10:12 AM) :

Blogger La chica said ... (10:13 AM) : 



Blogger Stephanie Clayton said ... (10:25 AM) : 

beautiful and CLASSY.

the color of her dress is not so easy to wear, but she looks stunning in it.

i need a pretty umbrella like that. i live in the tropics and cannot be in the sun for long. her umbrella is a stylish solution- no "hat hair"!


Blogger ana said ... (10:28 AM) :

I love the parasol! I've actually seen a few of them out here in CA, so maybe there are making a comeback!


Anonymous Cristina said ... (11:45 AM) : 

What a lovely look. I nearly bought some gloves like that a few weeks ago. I think I may have to go back and get them now.


Blogger Michaela said ... (11:54 AM) : 

That shot is amazing. Everything about it.

(And it took me a long time to say that,when I want to comment on your posts everyday; but I just can't because I feel intimidated.) ;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:05 PM) : 

How chic. I love the dress.


Blogger yves said ... (12:21 PM) : 


coquettish & stunning!



Anonymous Kate G. said ... (12:27 PM) : 

It doesn't get any more Gatsby than this. Your Governor Island shots are always a hoot. Did you carry a flask to the shoot and will you be posting more shots of the dancers? I hope so!


Blogger jewlover2 said ... (12:30 PM) : 

Parasols are so underrated. they are absolutely wonderful for the sun and fit my 1940's style perfectly. I stand out but I don't care. :) I'm nice and protected from the sun.


Anonymous Eeda said ... (12:32 PM) : 

This is such a gorgeous picture -- very old Hollywood!


Blogger Fannah said ... (12:39 PM) : 

The most beautiful gloves ever. I own some kind of those but I just can't wear them with anything, anywhere. Dárn it suits her.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:57 PM) : 

Beautiful picture. Where and what is governers island?


Blogger atasteoftomorrow said ... (1:28 PM) : 

she's radiant! Makes me want to visit the 20s! I love the sleeves of the dress.

gosh every picture you take makes the world look like such a beautiful place. This picture is timeless,
i wish everyone wore red lipstick and gloves again!

What a princess!!! Wauv!


Blogger Laura said ... (2:03 PM) : 

What's really great about this photo is that she may be in head to toe vintage but she doesn't look like she's wearing a costume. She manages to look Classic and Modern at the same time.


Blogger MaraudingCat said ... (2:08 PM) : 

This is my favorite photograph ever! I love the combination of red and mustard (which is my favorite fashion color). It is perfect!


Anonymous Hannah said ... (2:22 PM) : 

I LOVE mustard and red/orange. She's exquisite!


Anonymous Sophie, the Barton Girl said ... (3:05 PM) : 

Oh my, she's gorgeous!
And her outfit could almost win me over to the all-vintage look. I know that's a weird thing for a vintage dealer to say, but I'm more of a mixer (as in vintage/contemporary mix).
Thanks for sharing, as usual!


Blogger Virginia de la Reynares said ... (3:30 PM) : 

This is beyond stunning!!!!
I'm truly in love...


Blogger BaronessVonVintage said ... (3:34 PM) :

This is simply brilliant.
I love those gloves! I think I saw a knitting pattern for lace gloves that looked like them. I should get on those immediately!

Everything is so nicely done. Even her gorgeous smile.


Anonymous Seditionaire said ... (6:18 PM) : 

BEAUTIFUL!! This might sound completely redundant to New Yorkers...but WHAT IS THIS EVENT on Governor's Island w/ the swing band and period costumes?!
I know you've posted pics from it before, so I'm guessing it's a yearly affair? Would love to know some more about it, as the way your portray it, Sart, it looks like my idea of heaven!

All the best from Montreal!
Your friendly neighbourhood Seditionaire!


Blogger mutima said ... (6:48 PM) : 

reminds me of the cherry blossom party scene in the Memoirs of a Geisha film:)


Blogger skywalker said ... (7:24 PM) : 

How do you get such beautiful you shoot in the afternoon sun...doesn`t look like fill flash?


Blogger Jack McCready said ... (7:26 PM) : 

The parosol is a needed item for the summer women. Take note.


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:28 PM) :

Stunning photograph. So playful and summery. Love the gloves and the parasol. She looks like a vintage '50s movie star!

Another time, another era.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:06 PM) : 

Feel its the wrong yellow for her, but the style is beautiful on her body and the accessories and pose are spot on.


Anonymous Bombshell Kitten said ... (11:38 PM) : 

J'adore! The dress is simply fabulous, and the red lip really sets if off. How clean and elegant!


Blogger Kalli said ... (11:41 PM) : 

Gorgeous - love the red smile and gloves.

I have this paper parasol in cobalt blue - she probably got it as I did in Chinatown, at Pearl River on Broadway:


Blogger Bayley. said ... (12:27 AM) : 

Stunning gloves, make the whole outfit!
I'm new - check me out :D

A wonderful japanese umbrella!...
This woman is so beautiful with such a colonial allure!!

Where do these people get their clothes from??


Anonymous suzanne nelson said ... (6:18 AM) : 

This beautiful girl is a perfect example of how so many of the 'real' people you shoot are so much more interesting and inspiring to look at than bland shapeless models in many fashion magazines. Editor's take note. Fashion NEEDS you and the stylish people you document , Sart!

One best looks I have seen for a long time. She is adorable.

So far my favorite outfit! Beautiful!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:42 AM) : 

Parasols are everywhere in Shanghai when it gets (too) hot and (too) sunny. I guess that it's the same in many Asian places, where a white, flawless skin is a must.

what a lovely coquette!

This is the lovely Kristen Minksy, of the tap dancing duo, the Minsky Sisters! ! She IS lovely-inside and out!!

There are a handful of vintage events like this around town...another Governor's Island gig in September...and Wit's End is a fantastic 20s/30s evening on the Bowery ( )...the next one is June 27th! Dances of Vice is another fantastic vintage event- 18th century through Jazz Age fun! ( )


Blogger Trishe said ... (8:29 PM) : 

The details are wonderful.I especially love the parasol and gloves!

I love yellow dresses in combination with dimpled smiles!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:54 PM) : 

I owned this same parasol and bought in Chinatown NYC ten years ago. It finally ripped so badly I couldn't use it anymore. I now live in San Francisco so don't get to use my parasols very much. They are the best for sunshade.

Great fluttery sleeves and beautiful lines, a rich golden sunset color. Totally put-together and timeless. Love it. If I had a dress like this, I would MAKE occasions to wear it.

Her smile is so alluring. With everything else, it makes one wonder what special thing she's smiling about--life, herself, something fleeting thing passing by?
