Beautiful. What I love about this look is how it doesn't channel the usual vibes of a long look: neither too floaty and romantic nor too grungey. It's elegant and down-to-earth with just the right amount of swish. The muted colour palettes reveals a lot of texture up close.
Digression: Was reading a feature in New York magazine about The Sartorialist Scott Schuman and Garance Doré (and I admit, one that left me not liking Mr Schuman very much), and was inspired to dig up this particular post I really enjoyed when I only followed his blog intermittently in 2005 or 2006. It's far more charming than most things you'd see on his blog now, although I must say he's become a better photographer.
Also, this is the first-ever picture I saved off his blog. Doesn't she have such a great attitude?
His is still my favourite street style blog because aesthetically, it's more my kind of thing than other blogs. I do miss the days where his posts were peppered with interesting observations about tailoring, the fashion industry, New York City etc. But I admit, beautiful pictures make up for a lot.
