The colour of her shirt is very cool and gives a fantastic 20s allure to the entire look. Plus, her headband is so fifties! Yes a great mix of different styles. I love it!

That whole outfit it amazing! Colours are perfect.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:56 AM) : 

It's so strange to see Italian women wearing shorts. I was sure that it would never happen in the city. Last year in Florence my friend and I debated about it. This year, in May, I saw a girl walking along near Piazza Santa Maria Novella in shorts and a nice men's-influenced white and blue-striped shirt. What is interesting though is that the Italian girls seem to opt for longer and more tailored shorts than do North American girls. I like it.Cute that she's still wearing her kerchief look!


Anonymous Jana said ... (12:13 PM) : 

Monocle smile! Haha.

Great outfit.


Blogger Sylvia Etc... said ... (12:16 PM) : 

Wow she looks incredible! very 'Grey Gardens' actually


Blogger anthony said ... (12:22 PM) : 

I can't do the colours. They look too drab. The collar is very nice and I like the shorts. As to the '50's (?) headband and the insanely wacky specs, all good too. I struggle only with the colours and I would not be surprised if they grow on me... Thanks!


Anonymous Kimboli said ... (12:27 PM) : 

Does anyone know how to do that bow?? Its soooo cute!


Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (12:36 PM) : 

Why does she remind me of the fabulous Diana Vreeland? Maybe it's her ESPRIT... Great picture! Wonderful woman!


Blogger Q said ... (12:46 PM) : 

Wow! how fun and quirky this lady is! Nice, retro style and a personality to go with it! :)


Blogger Lisa Petrarca said ... (12:47 PM) : 

This picture looks like it could be from an old "I Love Lucy" episode if you put in black & white.

She's ADORABLE! I LOVE quirky people.

What a cute look! I love her shoes and her spirit is just amazing!

Blogger Hannah Stephenson said ... (12:47 PM) : 

She looks so adorable--I actually love the colors. The shorts are a great shape, and keep the outfit a bit dressier.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:53 PM) : 

For me, fahsion is something that isn't an exaggeration. Anything too powerful that pops out too much is not my taste. I'm talking about our daily fashion.. And you seem to find people who are natural in that sense without beeing too dull either.. This woman is a good example.. She definitely has her own style with the 50's era going on, yet it's not an immitation either because of the toned down colors of her blouse and taylored shorts which for me looks more of a classical summer look. As always people say, the details that make the twist and turn into an original look.


Blogger Tim D. Roth said ... (12:53 PM) : 

I love the shorts! It's incredibly refreshing to see women in things that aren't varnished on.


Anonymous cociolph said ... (1:04 PM) : 

Above the waist, it's great. I think a skirt, somewhat full but not long, would be better than shorts.


Blogger ... said ... (1:06 PM) : 

great shot and she has a nice style


Blogger BasicbutChic said ... (1:06 PM) : 

The greatest of the 40's and 50's : happiness and elegance ! Special mention for the "Bibi" in hair.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:22 PM) : 

I like this look too. The sandals are wonderful, not flip flops or gladiators, but something new. And those brown shorts, which are fairly pedestrian, look great with a lovely silk blouse like this. I do question the scarf around the head, I wish she had left her hair long, it makes me think that she has curlers underneath.


Blogger Cordeliacrammedintothisinfiniteuniverse said ... (1:22 PM) : 

I LOVE HER GLASSES. The glasses and the headband give her the look.


Blogger Paloma del Rio said ... (2:07 PM) : 

Perfect. Not only the whole look, but her attitude.


Anonymous Kar said ... (2:26 PM) : 

I seriously want those sandals. Never seen Art Deco ones before.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:37 PM) : 

These shoes are a prime example of Florentine craftsmanship. The form is modern in its geometric lines, but dynamic enough that anyone would be hard pressed to find them boring in a decade or so.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:44 PM) : 

I love this- From her nanna-chic headscarf down to her 'love' flats (are they Charlotte Olympia?).

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:46 PM) :

Love it when people can pull off goofy and fun without sliding into performative "Look how KOOKY I am!" obnoxiousness. There's genuine confidence here.

(And someone beat me to "Monocle smile"... darn!)


Blogger Tae Hee Park said ... (3:40 PM) : 

she looks lovely, this shot is so playful and loud yet the outfit is so chic and sophisticated.

Blogger kukla said ... (3:47 PM) : 

I find that the shorts are not the most flattering for her legs and coloring. The head scarf and the glasses are not working either. The hair should be free of time reference. The sandals and the blouse is completely modern with the shorts. Very fashionista and great mood.


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:55 PM) : 

I love everything about this outfit, the shorts, the shirt the sandals... and the best part really is that she seems genuinely quirky and fun, where many people who attempt the same thing just appear fake and put on. I want to know where she shops...and I REALLY wouldn't mind a mini break to Florence right about now!

OMG! I must have dozens of photographs of my mom dressed almost exactly like this. She didn't do the scarf thing, although very popular in the forties, unless she had her hair in bobby pins underneath, but the rest of this picture brings back a flood of memories. I'll have to did around and find a few and send them in. Wow! Her sandals are to die for. Love it all, great photograph Scott!

You have to check out the iconic photo I use (Cindy Crawford for Pepsi-Cola in the 90's) in my Gas Station Glamour posting. I think the photo says a whole lot about all-American fashion these days. XO Valerie

love all the texture and the geometry of the sandals. In terms of colours and lengths and baggyness/ overall look this reminds me a lot of "Summer in the City, Paris" you shot a week ago (girl with long shorts).

I love that period (1940s, maybe even a bit of the 30s), and she pulls it off beautifully. Even though she's in Florence, the shorts and sunglasses make her look like a femme fatale in Raymond Chandler's Los Angeles.

Just looking at the pic makes me feel like Philip Marlowe!

Cute outfit, but it would be nothing with out her attitude. I really think it's her personality that makes this. Plus, it's so refreshing to see a woman in summer embracing her pale skin. I'm so used to seeing every Australian female covered in orange fake tan..
