Superstar of the Day: This Girl

I love the Sartorialist (who doesn't?), and when this picture scrolled past me in Google Reader this mroning, I instantly starred it.

I kept peeking at it throughout the day, and finally realized why it's so awesome.

First: the shoes. I'd almost expect the woman to be wearing boots with this look, but no! She has on fabulous D'Orsays that would look just as great with a slinky evening dress as with this outfit. Love.

Second: The scarf! I must confess, I love scarves. Yesterday I wore an off-white scarf woven of Tibetan lamb's wool my sister gave me. And people could not stop commenting on it, including my cousin when I picked him up from the airport. "You must love clothes to wear that scarf!" he exclaimed. Yes...yes i do.

Scarves - thick, fluffy, sensuous scarves - are practical (a warm neck/throat is a great defense against germs) and add a special little something to the right outfit. If the woman in the picture had worn a red scarf, it would have been too matchy-matchy; black, too bland. But grey! She could wear that gray scarf every day, and I guarantee it would look great with a wide variety of outfits.
