I call this one: unpretentious and raw. Note a utility colored set of overalls that leave ample room for an exposed bra–one that alludes to sexy which works well with the man repelling nature of what’s worn over it–paired with a long strand of pearls and requisite tattoo strung together by what look like very luxe Christian Loubotuin exotic skin pumps. I imagine it would have been silly to suppose a red lip could have gone unmarked. Ultimately, this is the sort of unusual, un-worked but entirely flawless look that just makes you wonder: why didn’t I think of that? Here, here to the fashion dichotomy. Image via The Sartorialist.

    I saw this on the Sartorialist a few days ago. I struck me as well.
    There is so much going on here, totally unexpected, totally unpredictable, totally sexy. Can definitely see you in this.

    Isn't that the truth?!

  • Sabrina Strelitz

    Love a good Eel shoe, even the material is man repelling.

  • sonia de macedo

    I love this edgy combo of flesh and military green. Definitely a unique but surprisingly wondrous combination, and the tattoo's simply add to it's perfection!


  • Leira Zetroc

    Saw this on Scott's blog, as well. This girl oozes sexuality and femininity–but still stays true to the man repeller within. She is unbelievably raw and fierce. I would take two if I saw someone like this prowling down the street. The way she carries herself must be incredible. It's funny how much she drew my attention and your's as well.

  • Hannah Hayes

    This melts my soul. She's so stunning and deep – and raw is one of the first thoughts I had in my head, too! The placement of her tattoo is also the cherry on top!


    This look is really cool.


    one block away from my place of work. she looks so chic!

  • Izael Garrido

    When the Sartorialist post this I total love the look of this girl, the style was original and I still think that. Just: Love.

    I saw this photo on the site of The Sartorialist and it amazed me so much because of the light and because of the flawless of the lady here :). It was good to read your point of view about this picture :).

    This is so great. The girl in the photo is Elinor Arwyn from The Manhattan Cartel ( She is gorgeous.

  • Natali

    Oh wow! Look at her!? Definitely could stare at her and her outfit for a while!
    I'm in love 😛

    Like the overall look…the slight bra show is perfection! Possibly would have opted for different footwear but each to their own 🙂


  • Bonnie,Clyde and Marni…..

  • Sharon

    What a great example!


  • Tessa:

    Wow, beautiful!

  • Creativity&Chocolate

  • Prêt-à-Penser

    incredibly sexy and inspiring! I'd love to wear a "look at my bra" outfit too bad I'd look like more like a woman on the street than a cute outfit kind of type. ouch.


  • matchalattewardrobe
  • Bridgid

    Totally agree – great clash of tough & girly, those heels are killer!

    Ok, those fuchsia stilettos are such a perfect ending to this military fashion sentence!

  • TeuntjeVDW

    A-ma-zing! xx.

  • Mary

    one of the best looks in sartorialist, in the last days <3

  • Shophopper

    Here, here is actually spelled "hear, hear". Lovely look, though.

  • Emily

    Everything works so well in this, love the shoes and lipstick jumping out.

  • Sophie Mhabille

    Hey, great choice. i read everyday the Sartorialist blog but yours is my next on the list. I really love your humor. I am sorry my English is so bad.

  • Susana C.

    I disagree with some of you saying it's original but I do agree she looks great. Her style is right out of the Jamaican dance-hall scene. Kelis and Beyonce did it back in 2004 and dancers in Ocho Rios back in 2000.

    these overalls have the same hems as the waistbands on maternity jeans #nothankyou

    Unworked? I would have said overworked. She looks ridiculous.

  • Man Repeller

    Hahaha, but for the sake of man repelling #prettyfuckingperfect

  • Jesse

    I prob wouldn't have looked at this if you didn't post it. Like what you bring to it but its def not mystyle.

  • Alison

    I agree. I love this look so much. And the look on her face is perfect to match.

  • Ms.Fashionista

    After reading through all the negative and then positive comments about this shot, I definitely have to say it is actually pretty amazing. Is it my style, heck no. More like a high class stripper haha. But it is unique and inspiring. I can't quite place what I think about it, which is good because I still love it.

    So edgy.

  • Nathan Moy

    good point, super stylish but i cant help but think that it's only close to perfection because even though it looks so great, she still seems like she put time and effort in this look which kinda counteracts the whole effortless chic thing 😉

    Damn I want those shoes. The heel totally looks like Louboutin Though- so a little out of my price range.
