so edgy and feminine simultaneously!!


Blogger Anita Puksic said ... (3:34 PM) : 

2nd picture is beyond beautiful.

Peace and love!


Blogger blue roses said ... (3:34 PM) : 

ah, such a great intersection of carefree and boyish attitude with supreme femininity and sensuality.


Blogger Fashionlass said ... (3:38 PM) : 

The second photo is just STUNNING.
The lighting is perfection.
And I want that hat the girl in the first photo is wearing. ;)


Blogger Emily Barker said ... (3:40 PM) : 

Love those red frills. Racy top and great hat. Daring and it works.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:40 PM) : 

Both pictures are very hot!! The women are beautiful and intriguing. The brown woman in the bottom photo with her dewy eyes waits wistfully for her lover to return, ready with a warm embrace--that jacket is just not enough to stave off the chill of being alone.


Blogger Meena Dhuga said ... (3:41 PM) : 

wow! great photos!! love them!!

Love living by the sun. Best summer activity being pool side with a drink at hand.

the second image is very arresting...beautiful lighting!

her clothes add so much subjective narrative, amazing =]

gotta love l.a. ... just another day in, ho-hum, paradise. except for our traffic and smog and no real sense of "city" in our urban jambalaya and suburban sprawl. but, we 10 million angelinos call it home. "i love l.a." (nod to randy newman) ... gotta love it.

If I am not mistaken the red shorts are Billabong. I tried the same few days ago.

Nice shots

That second photo is drop dead gorgeous. Everything about it - the woman, the lighting, the composition. Just... wow.

Who are all the people in this alternative universe who are cool, cool, cool / beautiful beyond belief / look like they have no cares in the world. This is not my world. Have any of these people known suffering?

i love the first girls bloomer type bottom..she's hot

So sexy!

Oh I think the Second photo needs it's own post alone! IT's one of my favorites of yours! Great capture!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:26 PM) : 

Splendid! Some coverage of L.A., could we get a tad bit more?

My boyfriend and I love your photos, to the point where he got his second tattoo a couple years back from this blog: the image of the gentleman with the brocade shorts and the gilded shoes.

And that ink was placed right below a tattoo that reads "Los Angeles". Point in case:

I know you have a tremendous following over here, could we get a little more love?

Sideboob, the fashion accessory that goes well with any outfit...


Anonymous James said ... (4:36 PM) : 

Cue the double sided tape. Love it either way, though. She looks perfect.


Blogger CarleeKajsa said ... (4:37 PM) : 

i just keep thinking...she couldn't possibly go in the water in that outfit! that would turn R rated very quickly...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:37 PM) : 

I'm not really sure how I feel about the first photograph. It just seems random and not very well thought out as an outfit, even for pool side.

2nd picture -> beautiful skin tone, and i love how the light is bouncing off her showing a contrast (head) and a gradual blending (legs)


Blogger reigs said ... (5:27 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:37 PM) : 

Interesting to compare the strong, open spirit of the quite feminine woman carrying her suitcase on her oar in the vintage photo with the just trying too hard look of the woman in the red bottoms. We've lost the plot...


Blogger ADJ said ... (5:40 PM) : 

LOVE THESE IMAGES! they are kind of intense...


Blogger Paul said ... (5:47 PM) : 

I love the lighting in both these shots...amazing!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:58 PM) : 

Um, the one with the hat looks tacky in that shirt. Would wear that around the house...but out in public? Tacky, cheap and lowbrow. Too bad because she is beautiful. Second pic lovely and elegant

The white shirt is very cute. Good version of a swim suit. I like her hat too.

Awesome photos, chic pool party ;)


Blogger joseph said ... (7:10 PM) : 

The girl is the first pic is HOT!

I love the hat and the white tank-top is beyond sexy!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:24 PM) : 

As a woman living in la, the first picture of the woman in bloomers is the one of the two which most accurately portrays summer style in the city. The sideboob, the bit of an androgyness feel to it, the sort of "not give a sh*t" look on her face. I wouldn't say she's not a lady, or this look is trashy as some have been commenting. It's strong, bold, and beautiful.


Anonymous mar said ... (7:39 PM) : 

I want to go to this pool! Where is it?
Besutiful pictures and cool poolside looks


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:39 PM) : 

Part of the reason I need to get out of L.A. Completely useless people.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:40 PM) : 

I'm sure you will get lots of differing comments about the first photo. What is hot to one person is tacky and cheap to another. But that second doubt it will evoke a unanimous yes from all. It's a sensual, alluring and altogether artful photo of a beautiful woman.


Blogger avance said ... (7:41 PM) : 

Love them both, the first especially. Is this the first post from LA?

Can't believe you're finally in LA!
Love the 2nd photo.


Blogger Becky said ... (8:32 PM) : 

Not a fan of the first picture. The proportions are not flattering at all. The hat is the saving grace of it. The second picture is lovely.


Blogger lintmag said ... (8:38 PM) : 

photo 1: all too small
photo 2: gorgeous colors


Anonymous J9 said ... (8:47 PM) : 

The second picture is actress Robinne Lee. Beautiful!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:52 PM) : 

I'm just not cool enough for the first photo - for me that's a don't...ever - but the bottom picture is really AMAZING. Without trying to implicate race in any way, I can't help but see a Gauguin Tahiti image in the angle of her head, the depth of the backdrop, etc. It's just gorgeous; she's just gorgeous.


Blogger Ella said ... (9:02 PM) : 

the second image is stunning! the light on the woman's face and all the dark, rich colors are absolutely beautiful.

Love Both of these shot's.. Something to confident, strong and sexy about both of them but in total different ways. Love it.

Great dialogue between the patterns on the bikini bottoms of the two girls in the first picture.

A summer straw hat is at the top of my wish list when summer finally rolls round done under... Love it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:34 AM) : 

Add me to the chorus of folks singing the praises of the second photo and the woman in it.

The first photo... hmmmm. That look is a bit much, esp. since with one wrong move she'll be illegal in most states. But I do like the almost tomboyish vibe that keeps the look fresh and appealing.

As for the comments about the look being tacky--honestly, I find the blue bikini bottom to the right a whole lot tackier.


Anonymous Amelia said ... (3:54 AM) : 

I have just returned home from the amazingly beautiful pool-side bliss of the Roosevelt hotel in Hollywood. This photo sums my experience up perfectly. Pure bliss.

With that light and the jacket, with her pose and her eyes, she looks beyond mysterious...


Blogger Lipstick Sunshine said ... (5:00 AM) : 

The second picture is the one that really stands out to me; the lighting is absolutely stunning...very beautiful woman! But the first I'm kind of not feeling :/..don't know why. I think it looks a little too stiff maybe?

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:26 PM) : 

OK, the first photo is really tacky, the way she wears her tee shirt, the way she's posed. Who are these people? Do they care about anything beyond the next drink?


Anonymous CaliGirl said ... (1:10 PM) : 

Love that there is a pic from California! Come to SF!:)

The hat is cool, but the outfit is off, I think the t-shirt kills it...

Like the girl on the phone in 3rd pic, she looks elegant and soft.

She looks so classy. Love the barefoot angle!

Take note shoe designers world wide - this is the size of many women's feet and they deserve as much attention and opportunity as smaller sizes, more in fact! I'm size ten and desirable shoes sell out so quickly!!!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:05 PM) : 

First girl is sex-y without looking like she tried. I love LA. Note to Las Vegas pool people--you don't need 4-inch stilettos, dragon lady nails, gold lame' monokinis, and sprayed-on tans to look sexy as hell at the pool.


Anonymous YogaSpy said ... (6:23 PM) : 

Interesting that folks diverge on the first gal (as my dad would say) but unanimously find the second one beautiful and classy.

Subtlety is underrated.

Very unpretentiously sexy top photo but beautifully sensual at the bottom.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:27 PM) : 

I personally know Robinne Lee, the beauty in the second photo, and she is all of 5'4" and wears a size 7 shoe. I know this because I covet her fabulous shoe collection and can't fit but a portion of my 9 1/2s into her shoes. The photo, though stunning, is merely taken at a funny angle.


Blogger me said ... (12:08 AM) : 


Dear Satorialist,

Can you please come back to Los Angeles to take pictures of our people? How is it you take to the streets of Paris, Milan, Tokyo and New York for random style checks but on this rare occasion you have come to document L.A., you throw on some flip flops, slather on sun screen and head to a pool party?! REALLY!!?!?! Unfair.

A Disappointed Fan

any particular reason why the girl in the bikini (first photo) is wearing gloves (is her drink that cold?)

Blogger lollipop4598 said ... (9:10 AM) : 

I absolutely love the top picture. The t shirt and hat are great!
As for the little wall flower with the feet, I don't know. Is she talking on the phone or just posing? Its a lovely picture, however.
LA is one of the most amazing, beautiful cities I have ever been to. Traffic is a small price to pay for the beach and the attitude, and the amazing weather.
To the people who are harping on dignity I should like to say that dignity doesn't come from a bra. It comes from how you treat yourself, and more importantly, how you treat others. There is very little dignity in judging people you don't even know. What do you all wear poolside? A three piece suit?


Blogger FASHION BUZZ NOW said ... (10:53 PM) : 

She is stunning and naturally beautiful. She looks like an actress from one of the Tyler Perry TV shows. Does anyone know who she is? Her name?
