Love her wind blown locks and the serious cocktail rock on her finger. Edgy in the best of ways.

Dear Sartorialist,

It would be wonderful if your title was click-able so I could easily go back to the full site after following your Twitter link!

what do you think?




Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:19 AM) : 

oh i am SO in love with this. is her hair up or just short? either way it's great. perfect use of the socks-with-heels trend. and the draping of that dress is just spectacular.


Blogger Café Naïveté said ... (10:19 AM) : 

what a gracious silhouette! inspiring..:)

I Love Black style<333
She has perfect dress size!!

Giovanna Battaglia?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:20 AM) : 

I love the way her hair complements her dress with a kind of raw edge to it as well. And I like the brown belt and brown sandals.


Blogger Marloes said ... (10:20 AM) : 

Love this look, it's edgy


Blogger Ale said ... (10:21 AM) : 

Nice style!! Like it


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:22 AM) : 

I love the black-on-brown. The way she's standing makes her look as if she only has one leg (odd observation, I know). Does anyone else see the illusion?


Blogger Federica Tomietto said ... (10:23 AM) : 

great hair and lovely socks!
Would like to take a drawing about her on


Blogger Nfashion said ... (10:23 AM) : 

This blog is so nice! :-)


Blogger Rachel said ... (10:29 AM) : 

Black and brown look great together. Plus the messy hair, uneven hemline, and something about her face ... hmm, quite striking.


Blogger Tess said ... (10:29 AM) : 

yay, first to comment.

first of all.. the hair is a hot mess in a fabulous way.
I want the skirt.. love the unfinished/ uneven hem.
BUT this sort of looks like she has one leg... kind of creepy.

check out my post on Ordinary people with EXTRAORDINARY vision

love the sandals+socks+long skirt combo. very punkish look(hair) - kind of <3

so far this is my favourite at The Sartorialist.


Blogger GINGER FASHION MONSTERS said ... (10:53 AM) : 

LOVE the high waist, the chiffon like edge of the skirt.

Also very jealous of the sun they still have in Milan!

Most excellent.


Blogger Sing of Singature Style said ... (10:53 AM) : 

So cool, the messy hair goes well with the skirt.


Anonymous Amber said ... (10:55 AM) : 

Is this an optical illusion- I can't seem to see her other leg? Love the shoes.

Yes! I'm in love with black+brown combos! And her hair is beautiful.

the sock and heel, love it.

Mixing black and brown? How dare she!

But I'm not going to tell a woman this stylish how to dress ;-)


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:00 AM) : 

A cross between Helena Bonham Carter and Chanel's latest moth hole designs. I call it "Just before Halloween".


Blogger The New Black said ... (11:01 AM) : 

She looks nice. But usually i don't like to much the combination black and brown.


Anonymous Design Elements said ... (11:05 AM) : 

great look! @ Tom.. A cross between Helena Bonham Carter, Chanel's latest moth hole designs and Yoko Ono. Cool mix of black & brown


Anonymous Gregory said ... (11:09 AM) : 

Ooh, me likes. It's how the hem matches the hair, which matches the belt and shoes. Super sexy.


Blogger Cecille said ... (11:14 AM) : 

beautiful!! love her shoes!!


Anonymous Maryanne said ... (11:15 AM) : 

come undone in a polished way.

the hair and hem sort of mimic one another.
the colour of hair, belt & shoes are all complimentary as well.


Blogger TheChambrayCountess said ... (11:17 AM) : 

I like the mix of softness and a slight edge and the below-the-knee for the one leg thing everyone is creeped out by, she might just be a really chic pirate ;)
Happy Monday!


Blogger Prutha Raithatha said ... (11:20 AM) : 

thats freaking cute!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:25 AM) : 

it doesnt reminds you to halloween??haha



Blogger 18 Kerut said ... (11:27 AM) : 

Stunning Photo!


Anonymous The Photodiarist said ... (11:28 AM) : 

I have mixed feelings about the raw deconstructed edge. I wore a phillip lim above the knee dress to an event a week ago and it had raw edges along the waist line and the hem. By the end of the night, I had a multitude of strings trailing the ground. Bits of the silk strings were buched up on my boyfriend's suit pants. They were everywhere and I wondered how I still had a dress on my body . . . So its beautiful but in some ways so annoying and impractical.


Anonymous Toshi said ... (11:28 AM) : 

Black is the color....
I love your photos!
Respect from Japan


Anonymous Zenobiar said ... (11:29 AM) : 

Love the brown and black and the shaggy skirt. But socks and sandals here and elsewhere are just fashion victimism. Not functional (how do U keep the socks clean?) and too evocative of bad tourist looks that are rife in resort towns. I know it's style but I'm just sayin.


Blogger O. Falcon said ... (11:32 AM) : 

mi piace marrone e nero!!


Blogger Román Iglesias said ... (11:38 AM) : 

Like shoot and shoes


Blogger Café Ciza said ... (11:38 AM) : 

Kinda like a punk-rock ballerina feel, so elegant and fragile, yet so rock-n-roll. Great photograph!

Blogger Stella said ... (12:07 PM) : 

Classy and rock 'n' roll, from her hair down to her feet! Love it.
Wish I could get away with wearing the heel/sock combo, but alas I would look like an idiot.


Blogger Angel said ... (12:11 PM) : 

She beautiful for sure, but I think she looks like Helena Bonham Carters character in Harry Potter. Its like well thought out fashion madness. Love the brown belt and shoes though.

Her hair is pretty fantastic.
I love the socks with heels, which I am normally not to keen on.
I love her giant ring.
I love the pretty, simple pearl necklace.
This entire outfit works for me.

I love this look. Love it! Except the shoes. Those I hate.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:30 PM) : 

Great shot, what a silhouette. Love her body figure.

The finish at the bottom of the skirt is nice combined with the pattern of the top and the haircut. The socks are worn just right, like a perfect follow up to the skirt. They in turn work nicely with the shoes, which are bold but sophisticated. All smooth transitions.

The ring, belt, nails and necklace are all good.

All that's really missing here is her name and number.


Blogger toile la la said ... (1:30 PM) : 

Bravo! Untamed hair, dancer body, dancer style, dancer stance (everything is aligned - hence the leg illusion...but that's great),...not too much makeup. She's into texture. I'd like to see more of her wardrobe. Encore!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:36 PM) : 

I like her hair,her posture and her facial expression the most.

I really dislike the footwear (both sox and shoes). And her dress or skirt/top are o.k. - nothing to go crazy over.

Is that a big skeleton key? I wonder what it opens.


Blogger Anita Puksic said ... (1:53 PM) : 

What a lovely witch! Heh, I love her hair, that's what make her special.
And I like black and brown combination, I don't get what people find wrong with that.

Her hair & the bottom of her skirt completely tie together!


Anonymous cicidi said ... (4:24 PM) : 

A great photo. The girl wears and ambiguous expression. From her clothes, it's difficult to place her in a particular time period.,,this is what I love the most!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:33 PM) : 

I absolutely adore this to pieces. I would so wear this. However, I doubt it would look as gorgeous on me. As mentioned, the unfinished hemline, the shoe/sock combination, her messy bedhair, the simple jewelery - all of it fits so perfectly. I love how her outfit set the picture - it's so serene, almost. My favourite look of yours at the moment.


Blogger Shoshana said ... (5:09 PM) : 

I sooooooooo very often picture myself to look this chic. Why can't it happen?? Loving this look!

Blogger Kathleen said ... (5:39 PM) : 

I love this look. I feel the vibration of Vivian Westwood somewhere close around. Love the hair, the dress, the sandals, and yes (Can't believe I'm says this) the socks.
I wish the sock thing wasn't happening, but it is. Been there, done it, and its oh so wrong. But this woman makes it work.

What an interesting woman. I too agree that socks and strappy heels are tacky. Reminds me of trying to dress myself at age 4.

Socks and heels again! Amazed a how many people try it, and at how many pull it off.

The hair and the skirt make this look is bit too crazy, but that's what fashion is all about! Taking risks!

Anonymous Theobroma said ... (2:07 AM) : 

Interesting juxtaposition of frayed and sleek ... sort of distressed, understated, elegant goth poet.

I think the key unlocks her enigma. How do you do that, Scott? Find the fascinating person at the perfect moment, seemingly every time? You've got some serious photographic zen juju going on.

Black and brown together is love.

Can't pull off the socks w/ heels combo personally, but enjoy seeing it done with such assurance and panache.

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

Ok, so I have this question I've been meaning to ask for a long time:
Are these women you photograph just regular ones you happen to see or look for on the streets of the cities you visit? Or are they models?

Because the clothes I've seen on some of them baffled me. I mean that in the very best of ways. I am extremely impressed if all these gorgeous women you find are simply there by accident.


Blogger MasonSharpe said ... (1:16 PM) : 

Wow! I love her presence. Beautiful portrait.


Blogger Dominique said ... (2:32 PM) : 

The fringe of her dress matches her hair, very clever.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:48 PM) : 

Wow. Just... wow. The skirt is perfection, especially with the line created by the socks & shoes (it'd work with old-school granny boots, too). And the hair, the posture, the overall vibe... as Tatjiana Ciza says above, she looks like a punk-rock ballerina; I'd add that there are twists of goth and tribal in there too.

I see very few photos that make me think, "Damn, I wish I looked like that." This one does.


Blogger Catherine said ... (6:12 PM) : 

So elegant...


Blogger annasmellsgood said ... (8:58 PM) : 

I found this shot especially inspiring because I'm currently growing out a pixie cut, and her jagged, mussed 'do is an amazing way to rock in between cuts. xx!
