Blogger Esti said ... (9:07 AM) : 

Yeah, she got the balance...She looks wonderful. Good job!

 

Anonymous Kate said ... (9:12 AM) : 

This could be a lifestyle ad for New York! Like how simple this look is: black and silver - but the mirrored aviators make it really now. Very aspirational.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:13 AM) : 

She is the definition of beauty. Black again! At least the dress has a waistline.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:23 AM) : 

without te sunglasses... it could be very classic. nice dress

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:25 AM) : 

The shoes, the dress , everything just right. She looks GREAT!

 

Blogger Natalie Galitzine said ... (9:47 AM) : 

I love the composition of the photo, and the yellow color spots (taxi, street lights) on grayish background ;o)

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:01 AM) : 

It makes me want to move to NY and buy Rayban aviators! Great composition and light in the photo.

 

Blogger McTickle said ... (10:25 AM) : 

Smokin hot!

 

Blogger Chinostarrone said ... (10:28 AM) : 

This is going to be one of your classic portraits, its an amazing picture.

 

Blogger The solemn cat said ... (11:09 AM) : 

Beautiful!

 

Blogger Hilda said ... (11:37 AM) : 

I don't see a lot of young women wearing dresses to work nowadays. She looks wonderful. I love the cuff. And her shoes aren't black, are they? Love it too.

 

Anonymous losangelesnontrad said ... (11:38 AM) : 

Good lord, man! You have outdone yourself. She is la bombe! By that I mean she is perfectly put together in terms of style and very healthy, not anemic. I don't want to be a sexist bore.

(But I love her!)

 

Blogger Elyse said ... (11:41 AM) : 

Dresses for work are the best! I am looking forward to seeing others! I have many for the winter, but am having a hard time finding some for the summer.

 

Anonymous amylola said ... (12:00 PM) : 

wow, a perfect picture! she looks great - wonderful smile and the hair blowing across her face adds to the spontaneity of it all. and fabulous NY background. i want to be there right now!

 

Blogger aviewaskew said ... (12:01 PM) : 

laser like focus on a modern, cosmopolitan woman..bravo!

 

Blogger Zlist said ... (12:08 PM) : 

Is it me (or my monitor), or are the shoes actually burgundy?

Great photo!

 

Anonymous veronique said ... (12:22 PM) : 

Nice! Can't wait to see part 2 and 3.

 

Anonymous Kate G. said ... (12:42 PM) : 

Thank heavens, the dress is back and you were able to position that cab in just the right spot. Now I'm looking forward to summer.

 

Blogger fashionfatwa said ... (12:44 PM) : 

Love the aviators and waistline of the dress and the cuff. But the dark eggplant shoes don't work with the black dress.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:46 PM) : 

She looks great, although bare legs and stilettos don't seem very "office appropriate." At least not in my office anyway...

 

Anonymous Kat said ... (1:10 PM) : 

your work is a phenomenon! you were the first one with this kind of art, and the people you choose have their very own style!
great great work!!!

 

Anonymous A said ... (1:21 PM) : 

fresh beauti

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:31 PM) : 

I would so love to work in a job wear you could actually wear something like that......Actually, no, I wouldn't.

I love working in a hospital......

 

Blogger TLV calling said ... (1:37 PM) : 

The dress is nice, but that's it..

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:13 PM) : 

She looks Italian, which is a good thing. The taxi guy must prefer blonds. To bad he missed out. That guy in the back ground is like me, whenever I see a stylish sexy woman, my ears perk up. Ahhh N.Y., wish I were there, just to hang out.

 

Anonymous tj said ... (2:25 PM) : 

For Anon 9:23
Without the sunglasses it would be just ordinary. The glasses are a tasteful expression of personality that makes the lifts this above the ordinary.
I love the sort of look where 90% of the outfit is conservative and classic but one thing (necktie, suspenders, jacket lining, socks, etc.) is a little crazy.

 

Blogger muhajababe said ... (2:33 PM) : 

fabulous ! love those aviators against her tanned complexion :D

 

Anonymous d'Auria said ... (2:38 PM) : 

purple pumps. love love love

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:58 PM) : 

classic dress, but a bit boring...

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:04 PM) : 

I hate to see any black in warm weather, nice dress, wish it wasn't blk!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:06 PM) : 

Don't like that poofy little pouch in the front of the dress and the shoes are way over the top, especially for work. Hate to be the voice of negativity, but I am going to be the odd one out and say I don't like this look.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:14 PM) : 

wish i could see the front of the dress... it looks pretty, but from this angle with her hair in the way, it's really hard to tell.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:14 PM) : 

Bergdorfs working girl...great shot!

 

Blogger Maame Agyeben said ... (3:36 PM) : 

This is what I aspire to.
I love the combination of the classic dress with the edgy aviators. She looks put together but not too contrived.
Well done.

 

Blogger Cara said ... (3:41 PM) : 

This is one of many times when I wish you would give us the info on the clothes!! Who makes the dress because I must have it! If it is in my price range! Exclamation point!

 

Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (3:45 PM) : 

She looks great! Very nice photo!

 

Anonymous Rehana said ... (4:25 PM) : 

She looks divine! I adore how her hair has been blown unintentionally.

 

Blogger Nadine said ... (4:57 PM) : 

FABULOUS dress! Love the pointed waistline and the coloured shoes and the silver cuff.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:16 PM) : 

Now THAT'S a great look. She is professional, sexy, stylish, and pretty all at once. Let's have more dress pics.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:12 PM) : 

Hot lady. Period.

 

Blogger Lost&NOTfound said ... (6:16 PM) : 

she looks amazing!

sart we <3 you!!!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:03 PM) : 

QUq! Her stilletto heels lift her above the ordinary and into the realm of the fantastic and born to riches.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:18 PM) : 

beautiful! you look SO good - im going to copy that !

 

Blogger acafourek said ... (10:55 PM) : 

I love the Sartorialist blog. Candid photography has always been my favorite kind of imagery…capturing the fleeting moments in life in a way that preserves the spirit of the moment is really quite amazing. Well, the Sartorialist is all about capturing these moments as people ‘live their fashion’.

This photo caught my eye this morning. A seemingly unassuming moment with a story to tell.

Really?? Why??? I am so glad I don't live in your world.

This is a great look -- the shoes not being black is just part of what rocks this look.

D.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:09 AM) : 

She looks very well pulled together. I do think it's too severe, though.

And holy sunburn!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:34 AM) : 

I absolutely love this woman and her dress!! I love her smile, the way her hair came accross her face and she laughed! She's lovely.

Blogger pika said ... (3:43 AM) : 

it's a nice dress, but what really makes the outfit is her attitude. the silver of the cuff and aviators add some interest but otherwise it's nothing spectacular (to me). to me she looks indian, especially since she's wearing the red string bracelet. i could be wrong though.

losangelesnontrad@11:38 AM: there's nothing necessarily sexist about having your own particular taste in women. if you like them to look healthy you like them to look healthy. if others like them skinny they like them skinny.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:02 AM) : 

Looks great! I went out immediately and bought a similar dress.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:21 AM) : 

I love that the shoes are purple/aubergine - I bet they look amazing in real life......

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:25 AM) : 

everything about this is cool! i love it...

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:22 PM) : 

I love how this woman slightly alterned her look by adding the aviators glasses and shiny silver bangle. I also love how the wind is blowing her gorgeously shiny hair across her smiling face. So feminine and chic.
Anyone know who the shoes are by?

 

Anonymous kaye said ... (10:02 PM) : 

shopping bags to work?
and the crossed leg details.
and is that a red bracelet?

 

Blogger Kanani said ... (2:15 AM) : 

I love the dress, the cuff and the bracelet. The aviators --a bit out of scale. Hair --great, smile wonderful, earrings great. The shoes bother me. I think it's both the toe and also the height that somehow seem not so thought out.
Let's put it this way: she'd better have a job where she sits a lot or in five years, she'll be getting a bunionectomy.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:52 AM) : 

love it/you just couldn't inspired any better...love ya love ya Schuman

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:06 AM) : 

The best looking woman I've seen on here--ever. Maybe one of the best looking women I've ever seen. It's amazing how simple everything is and yet, how complicated, and much less attractive, most women's fashion is these days. It's almost like, "how unique and odd can I look?" Not, "how good can I look?" And this woman has got it down.

 

Blogger petrina said ... (5:56 AM) : 

she looks perfect! I wear dresses to work all summer (it turning into winter here in Australia and I'm sad no more dresses!) I can only hope that I look half as good as she does!

 

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

Best things are simple!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:37 AM) : 

She just looks lovely!

I especially love how she's standing so cool and relaxed on a crossing. I've only been to New York once but I felt like I was taking my life in my hands at every crossing!

 

Anonymous Cecilia said ... (4:35 PM) : 

She looks great in that dress! I must say that dresses are my salvation when I have to go to work. More than one will turn to look at you. Feel the experience of wearing a dress on the street. It will make your day...

 

Blogger Jonathan said ... (11:57 PM) : 

Timeless. Why can't she work in my office.

A quick note on the shoes. One thing that I notice where I live is that the young women around here always forget about the shoes. The thin, clean line of the stiletto is perfect choice. A lesser shoe would have killed the whole lot.

 

Blogger Saucy said ... (2:39 PM) : 

Nice aviators. She's got it going on, with some smokin' footwear too. She knows that accessories make or break your look.

 

Blogger carla said ... (9:23 PM) : 

...simply love it!
It captured my attention immediately. She looks confident, fresh and feminine..

 

Anonymous june said ... (2:48 PM) : 

oh wow. this really feels like ny.

 

Blogger herbatka said ... (11:46 AM) : 

This pictures screams NYC summer to me. It is definitely going into my Sartorialist Favorites file.

 

Anonymous Belinda said ... (10:20 PM) : 

I simply love this photo! There is such life to it...beautiful capture! Your enviable eye for composition surpasses the fashion so much of the time. I love seeing the fashion, of course, but equally love seeing how you set up a shot. :-)
