Welcome to Buenos Aires. Find a tourist guide or a local friend. You should go to Feria de Mataderos. If you like soccer, you should go to watch a match at de Boca Juniors stadium.


Blogger Paula said ... (10:31 AM) : 

Dear Mademoiselle Melbourne:

I've worked on a fruit truck in a farmer's market. You get messy. To find an outfit that can take the abuse and yet still look stylish isn't easy. The designers don't really make clothes for fruit truck girls.

So if you ain't feeling this, I don't care. She has turned up in something other than an ugly bomber jacket (like the girl in the picture behind her), she has looked in the mirror before she left the house...I think she looks GREAT!

Very nice shot. I like markets and market vendors.

Let alone cute market vendor girls.

Great colors and perfect for fall. The worn-in working clothes and shoes are made fashionable by the tie and hat.

This girl knows what she's doing!

There's really beautiful woman underneath all that brown. Love everything but the pants, but I'm not going to judge her. She's dressed pretty stylishly considering the dirty work she was probably into all day.

Another barbour jacket, and it looks fantastic. Especially with the hat. And a red head to boot!


Blogger lintmag said ... (1:08 PM) : 

Very cute - this is the kind of photo I like to see in an editorial. While I appreciate the couture, crazy high heels, etc, this is a look you feel you could actually wear and get some everyday inspiration from the style.


Blogger BDC said ... (1:42 PM) : 

Love the acorn accessory!


Anonymous sam said ... (1:56 PM) : 

So nice to see style that wasn't obviously plucked from all the right shops. Well done. Then again, I've always been a sucker for the Little Rascals style.

Blogger Sara C. said ... (2:56 PM) : 

This is really convincing me to drop my OCD tic of refusing to wear pants and a jacket in the same color/fabric unless they are a suit. Because even though she's wearing a brown chino jacket and brown chino pants, she still looks adorable.


Anonymous jdit said ... (3:07 PM) : 

Lovely reds from all corners of that color's spectrum. Right into purples of her outfit and some far spectrum red ends with oranges, even bordering on browns and golds. That splash of orange of the crates and the brilliant green on the boxes spices up the shot. Whether you did it on purpose or not your eye caught it all. Blue eyes and the pattern on the shirt to match. The colors of fall in the city. Excellent!


Blogger Laura Sherriffs said ... (3:22 PM) : 

I love this look, especially the boots and the hat.
It looks very Oliver Twist-esque.

She looks like the boy in the Chaplin's movie.

I'm pretty sure I have the same exact jacket...I always get complements on it and it's from H&M. Love the red hair.

sweet face and work look wid style!


Anonymous Engagement Rings said ... (5:40 PM) : 

Great look, all blends so well in a non obvious way.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:06 PM) : 

I love it when function shapes form and form is then tweaked to reflect personality and style. The end result, in this case, is a look that says that this woman knows, does, and appreciates hard physical work--the little style touches (acorns! a totally superfluous necktie!) seem to reflect real joy in what she does and who she is, while the wonderfully worn boots and tatty trousers have the grace and panache that only well-worn, well-loved clothes can acquire.

She is so very much more chic than 99% of the fashionistas you photograph... her style comes from the inside, not connections or a well-stuffed cash register. And her expression suggests that, in a happily non-arrogant way, she knows it. :)


Blogger Arantxa Chavarria said ... (6:07 PM) : 

what a fashionable young girl.. she really made this outfit work!

I think it's interesting how people say this looks like a costume. To me, heels, straightened hair, all that primping... that is costume. Funny how a natural looking girl looks to some like she is wearing a costume.

She has style and character. Not slick and high end like MademoSELL Melbourne would like but how many of us would bother if we were just to work in a farmers market waking up at 6 in the morning or whatever.
Take it for what it is...this is not a high street fashion shoot... just fashion happenstance. I for one am sick of the slick effort-less-ness of the other blogs that just shoot people that are at these fashion shows. I mean how difficult is it to shoot well dressed people attending a fashion show. Let's get it and applaud this young girl who refused to let her job overshadow her style and character. Good job Mr. Satorialist !

What did she do with her tie?


Blogger Lacey said ... (9:57 PM) : 

Hi Paula,
I didn't realise she worked at the farmers market, just thought that was her every day style. You shouldn't worry too much that I don't particularly like her outfit - We all have different tastes which is what makes fashion so interesting. I'm very open minded when it comes to individual style. I appreciate her effort, I just don't find her outfit as GREAT as you do.


Blogger Margo said ... (10:07 PM) : 

she makes we want to wear a tie. I like how she looks feminine (is it the hair that does that?) and not androgynous.

the boots are great too.

Blogger Miguel Ignacio said ... (11:46 PM) : 

A perfect example to show the difference between fashion and style... for what I can see, that beautiful girl´s clothes has many years or has many use, but the combination, the color palette and the way she uses the pieces, gives her a very nice, simple but well thought look.

I just love it... I want to gave her a kiss in her cheek.

Adorable! The hat & tucked in tie! It doesn't take much to add a little style even for a day of working at a Farmer's Market.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:56 AM) : 

I'm having a hard time with this one. There are ways of doing downtown bohemian without looking like a disheveled slob. Yes, those boots are AMAZING...but the costumy 70's collar and ratty tie, plus the skirt/waiter's apron (or whatever that is), just makes her look messy.

To me, it looks the opposite of natural. SOOO overworked.

Blogger said ... (10:44 AM) : 

For me this picture is more about beauty than glamour. I'm referring to Beauty with a capital "B" so as not to confuse the two. Glamour is merely stoking the fires of desire through the allure of fashion. True beauty emanates from a more profound idea. Robert C. Morgan, writing in The End of the Art World, alludes to the mysterious source out of which beauty in art is born, as it is in this artful photograph by the Sartorialist. "The work of art is a message from the UNSEEN," he states. "It unlooses the depths of feeling from behind the frontier where the precision of consciousness fails."

Agnes Martin in her essay on the subject describes beauty as an awareness in the mind of the mystery of life. Being an artist, according to Martin is being concerned with beauty and happiness. "Beauty illustrates happiness," she writes. "The wind in the grass, the glistening waves following each other, the flight of birds--all speak of happiness. Happiness is being on the beam with life--to feel the pull of life."

All this to say that this photograph, viewed as a work of art, is right on the beam.

This woman works at the farmer's market at Union Square, she got up very early to work an 11 hour day selling produce.
I know because I work at the same market, at a different stand. It's hard work.
Us farmer's market girls don't use calculators, we do math in our heads while standing on our feet all day, load and unload the truck, and put up with pushy and difficult New Yorkers. I think she looks great for a day of messy, hard work!

Style is about being able to be creative and stand out while at the same time fitting in in your environment. If she worked at the farmers markets wearing high heels and an all black ensemble with perfect hair and make up then she would follow the TREND of looking like a celebrity clone.

Anonymous Theobroma said ... (1:36 AM) : 

This is style that knows how to handle the heat while still keeping it cool. Yes, style that actually WORKS. I even like the pristine black half-apron for making change -- the practicality of it, with a (probably unintentional but still clever) nod to the classic urban-uniform color of NYC. Everything above and below it looks comfortable, much-loved and ready for whatever happens in a full day. Nothing precious or expensive, but rich nonetheless. I really appreciate seeing a person's sense of humor. That tie!

Excellent colors on her and the background, especially the reds and blues tying everything together. That solitary cherry tomato on the ground just behind her just kills me. Like a little grace note almost too small to notice, and so perfect when you do.
