On the Street.... So Much to Love, Madrid

Comments on "On the Street.... So Much to Love, Madrid"


Blogger Sweetthyme said ... (8:38 AM) : 

Scott - Congratulations on the write-up in today's Financial Times paper (re: Art of the Trench)!!!

Your photos continue to inspire all of your fans. =)

Today's girl is super cute mixing up the textures. The aviator sunglasses & red lips top off the outfit perfectly.


Anonymous said ... (8:39 AM) : 

The zigging and zagging of her sweater is particularly sweet.

Like old Missoni but mussed up a bit.

Very chic!


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (8:39 AM) : 

I think this picture is wonderfully lit, one of those quick moments in time when you just have to get your camera out. As for her outfit, there is too much going on, too many textures, colors and lines everywhere. Even sadlier, I can't find one piece that I love here. She herself is lovely, though. Jorge from WPB


Anonymous Alexandra said ... (8:49 AM) : 

almost thought it was my apc man jacket!


Blogger tiofyra said ... (8:52 AM) : 

love this outfit - especially the way the pant narrows toward the knee - best is her smile!!


Blogger Cristi Silva said ... (8:52 AM) : 

I think all the different textures work. She has a bold outfit and a bold smile! Beautiful picture! CS


Anonymous The Photodiarist said ... (8:53 AM) : 

I agree! There is so much to love. The vertical and horizontal stripes are the best! Not to mention the patterns and the solid blue scarf. Love this.


Blogger Mark said ... (8:53 AM) : 

Yes, she has entirely too much going on. But, I can see why she would be intriguing to photograph.

By the way, I know where you shot this photo. I visited Madrid in August. Lovely city.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:55 AM) : 

a cute bo-bo :)
I like the stile "that's my father blazer...oh those are my granma bracelets and I stole the scarf from a clochard"
lovely smile


Blogger Cheryl Cato said ... (8:58 AM) : 

I love the look!!! She looks happy & relaxed.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:04 AM) :

Blogger Emilie said ... (9:06 AM) : 

A lot of textures and colors....


Blogger Ana Sloane Street said ... (9:08 AM) : 

hmmm! I thought I wouldn´t see any picture yours of Madrid Street Style ;)
kiss from madrid


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:08 AM) : 

I'd give anything to see her with the white undershirt tucked in. Then this look would be perfect. Well, maybe a more subdued color for the scarf. THEN this look would be perfect.


Blogger The Spicers said ... (9:11 AM) : 

She's got a great mix of patterns. Love her style.


Blogger joshylola said ... (9:11 AM) : 

Madrid I love you

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:19 AM) : 

Sweet, really sweet.


Blogger EMPEROR OF MANCUNIA said ... (9:20 AM) : 

She is a very attractive woman but the ensemble doesnt look insouciant rather clumsy. Yet, she has carried it off somehow and as a result seems very approachable. I would certainly invite her for a Gelato in the autumn sunshine.


Blogger Mar said ... (9:23 AM) : 

fabulous scarf! thanks for visitin spain :)


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (9:31 AM) : 

Finally I see a beautiful lady wearing more than two colors. :)


Blogger TMFA said ... (9:32 AM) : 

Excellent photo and great style! Love Madrid


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:33 AM) : 

I love the top, the aviators, the hair band, that great smile and then the bottom with the pants. The stuff in between I'm a bit ambivalent about.



Blogger caramelized memoirs said ... (9:51 AM) : 

me encanta. i used to live in spain, and i really miss the unique style of spaniards in general.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:55 AM) : 

I love your blog!
Where are you from?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:57 AM) : 

LUUUUV a Woman in Ray Ban classic aviators. Its the only sunglasses anyone should wear!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:58 AM) : 

I didn't get excited until I got to the orange on her wrist and then the whole thing came alive. There is a lot going on but she is so individual in her choices that it makes it great to me. The colors in the muffler and scarf are beautiful. I don't think she studied every item before throwing it all on and I like that, too.


Anonymous Iria said ... (10:03 AM) : 

I can't believe you're shooting in Spain! thnx for coming once again! :)
about this woman.. I love the mix of patterns. Wearing Across and down stripps together looks orginal and intelligent. I like the complements!


Blogger K'arhol said ... (10:12 AM) : 

I love the blue scarf !!


Blogger decoratrix said ... (10:13 AM) : 

C'mon Jorge! Sadlier?

I don't agree. Super stylish. Top outfit.

Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (10:19 AM) : 

I love the scarf and the top. That is what really stands out besides her magnetic smile =)


Blogger jkh said ... (10:20 AM) : 

now that was an easy one, scott. - ...finally someone i know.


Blogger Lu said ... (10:27 AM) : 

The headband is a disaster. As well as the blue scarf, I don't think it's proper for this particular outfit. But she seems perfectly happy in what she wears and that is what matters. :)


Blogger Nick Leonard said ... (10:33 AM) : 

Great one. :)


Blogger AM said ... (10:34 AM) : 

I'm one of those people who are afraid of wearing colors other than black and gray but this picture is giving me some ideas. The blue of the scarf looks great with the jacket and sweater.


Blogger Dani said ... (10:39 AM) : 

Thanks for coming to Madrid. It's been a pleasure to meet you.

Lovely to see you in Madrid. I hope you enjoyed it! I did!

Have a nice time in Barcelona!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:24 AM) : 

I don't see any planned coordination here. It appears that she just threw on a random assortment of items found on the bedroom floor.

i actually kind of miss the pleated waist, it's looking good here!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:37 AM) : 

I think style is at its best when is unpretentious and self-effacing and this is a perfect example of this. I'm loving how she assembles uncoordinated patterns, colours and textures and how they all blend effortlessly in the final look. Great shot Mr Sartorialist!

... for the socially inquisitive, this girl is Marisa Santamaria, one of the top PRs in Spain.

Much to love here, indeed. But I don't lika the pantalones. Too Annie Hall. But I love her of course, minor detail.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:06 PM) : 

Personally, I'm not a fan of this look, but I do like her gentle smile.


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

The scarf with its pop of color saves the look - gives it a visual anchor.

Mi piace molto la maglione di missoni.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:45 PM) : 

Dear Scott,

On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this shot a minus 5. To be serious its a bit mish mashy in terms of colour and coordination and with absolutely no sartorial quotent what so ever! Apart from her winning smile, please do tell what it is you see thats in anyway stylish about this shot that befits your very important blog read by thousands?

Do keep up the great work Scott.....PLease!

the best type of perfection, the kind that isnt planned or particularly thoughtout. she looks amazing from the pose to the red lip and the lighting.

However, I have to say that I'm disapointed about the picture you chose from Madrid. I'm sure that there was more lovely stylish people in your conference. Please, add more pictures and let people know that Spanish people is also stylish as people from Paris or Milan.
