Blogger Beverly. said ... (2:50 PM) : 

I love a minimalistic, yet very fashionable and individualistic look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:56 PM) : 

perfection. i wish they had sandals similar to taht for guys.


Anonymous Lly said ... (2:59 PM) : 

lovin' that shirt!


Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (3:02 PM) : 

Is it possible that you couldn't decide whether to say 'simple' or 'smile'? Because she is both and gorgeous, too.


Blogger Holly said ... (3:05 PM) : 

What a darling girl...I love what she is simply chic!!!


Blogger isabel said ... (3:15 PM) : 

Muy guapa. Bonita foto.
Besos desde Estella.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:19 PM) : 

she is so cute.....with really cute little toes too haha


Blogger TERI REES WANG said ... (3:21 PM) : 

She is a good reminder to sit simply on a step and smile, while watching the world swing by. A nice play.


Blogger Chris Roman said ... (3:26 PM) : 

You're right, so simple, so smily I could say and even more colorful ! Enjoy Australia Scott !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:27 PM) : 

Very fresh and innocent. And seems simple but not so! Look at that gorgeous skin, not a blemish on those legs - a mosquito bite, a scar?? Nothing! perfect. natural. I am extremely envious.


Blogger Jules, London said ... (3:34 PM) : 

The 'so simple, so perfect' lead in to this image is very apt. The shade of grey works perfect in the sunlight and the silk/voile texture make this type of clothing ideal for extreme sun. I love this look. Very me. Can I have it with opaques and a very warm jacket for the London frost?? Please?


Blogger Deaton Jones said ... (3:35 PM) : 

I'd rather see her standing up because, it being so simple, all I see is a pair of sandals you can get at J Crew and a hidden dress. The extreme simplicity combined with you sitting position, I think, detracts from the picture as a whole.


Blogger JStyer said ... (3:36 PM) : 

simple and gorgeous


Blogger Elena said ... (3:37 PM) : 

absolutely lovely!


Blogger Evie said ... (3:37 PM) :

She is truly lovely..........fresh,

Criss-crossed arms, criss-crossed legs, criss-crossed sandals. Still open and adorable.

So cute. She looks happy but a bit shy.
Anyway, great outfit.


Anonymous dale said ... (4:42 PM) : 

this is delightful! she has a very uplifting smile, and her easy style compliments it so well. she's a cute girl.


Anonymous mccokes said ... (4:49 PM) : 

The fabric of this dress makes it for me. It looks soft and even a little bit silky. I'd love to see the drape of how it falls, but it looks beautiful. Pairing it with the leather sandals makes it wearable for day and makes it seem like something that one could run around in while still looking very chic. Very nice photo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:56 PM) : 

I completely forgot - it's summer there! youre so lucky!


Blogger Un samedi... said ... (5:01 PM) :

I like the look, it's very clean and fresh.


Blogger Café Naïveté said ... (5:14 PM) : 

OOhh I love it. It seems so casual and I love the colours. Yet the fabrics are so elegant...


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (5:33 PM) : 

And gorgeous legs!


Anonymous Guga said ... (5:51 PM) : 

This is simple... but its not perfect.. its fresh... and she has the charisma... but theres something lacking..something colorful... the garment is great....i would add a lil bit of color to the sandals...maybe a summery yellow.. but u can see she is confident and comfy on those... thats what counts


Anonymous Shoestring Traveler said ... (6:03 PM) : 

Lovely dress! Grey is such a pretty color.


Anonymous Hancock said ... (6:09 PM) : 

Looks very William st Paddington and yeah she's great. Simple, elegant and uncomplicated modern Australian style!

I like the sandals ! ;D



Blogger Vinda Sonata said ... (8:17 PM) : 

this is beyond perfection! she's very gorgeous in that sheer top and simple skirt. the flats adds to the perfection too.


Blogger val michael said ... (9:12 PM) : 

i love the balance of the softness of that dress and the masculine-feel of those sandals.and its not too loud,but still making a statement.


Blogger Sunshinemom said ... (9:25 PM) : 

I love your pictures. I tried keeping the contrasts a little high the way you do and it makes so much difference! You should give some pointers on how you take them too!


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:28 PM) : 

Yes, simple, too simple.I do not see anything chic or elegant or perfect, sorry. Very average dressed pretty girl.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:29 PM) : 

love the whole thing! where can i get those sandals??


Blogger Mark said ... (10:33 PM) : 

Love this shot and her style. Very simple and cool. It works beautifully on her. She's beautiful as well.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:44 PM) : 

she is pretty which distracts us from looking critically at her outfit. its mediocre

mostly i just like that the color of the dress reflects the color of the landing/ stairs. grey is good.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:26 PM) : 

i've been on the site everyday since last year. never once commented despite the wonderful photos and inspiration. but this one - my, my! she's beautiful from the inside out.

her simplicity n the sober backdrop both compliment each other... relieving to see such a beauty ...away from the flashes of fast city

Anonymous Amber of Brisbane said ... (12:27 AM) : 

The simple summer look of Sydney is all very lovely, but what else have you spied? Am a little disappointed with the frock and sandals scene. Surely there are edgier looks there?

(BTW did you know Sydney is sometimes refered to by Melbournians as "The Emerald City" a la Wizard of Oz fame?)


Anonymous Runway Reviews said ... (12:49 AM) : 

yes exactly the style i like less is more. The perfect basic with powerful shoes and good fabrics


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:02 AM) :

This kind of airy, light summer style is the best way to dress here in Sydney! Love it!

Blogger janu said ... (2:31 AM) : 

The colour of the gray dress comes out very well with the translucent texture of the fabric. Both structure and texture play an important role. A brilliant photograph

i actually think it's the unpolished toenails that make this look so fresh and unspoiled. how often do you see those in summer? love the lack of artifice.

I love everything but the sandals. She's a very cute girl and this is a perfect look for a hot summer day, simple, easy, fresh, perfect.
I totally love her dress and the nude makeup, but those are a pair of ugly sandals (although they must be very comfortable when it's really hot, i would probably wear them too if there 40 degrees out)

Dear Scott,

There is much to be said about simplicity...
I think we in the fashion business often forget that a clean fresh face and manner of dressing let's the soul of the person shine thru...
