It's all in the details.

Three very different looks shot by The Sartorialist at different times and at different locations. What ties these looks together, you might ask? Well, take a closer look. These three all have something distinct that make them really stand out (well, for me at least).

In photo number 1, it's the pen that's peeking out of the shirt pocket. In photo number 2, it's the pack of cigarettes in the woman's hand. And finally, it's the unexpected brown leather belt. These seemingly unnoticeable accessories are the things that make their outfits work in my opinion.

The most beautiful smile

I haven't seen a smile this genuine in a very long time. Look at her eyes. I am left speechless and all I can do is smile as well.

A quote from: What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami

"As I've grown older, I've naturally come to terms with this. You open the fridge and can make a nice - actually even a pretty smart - meal with the leftovers. All that's left is an apple, an onion, cheese, and eggs, but you don't complain. You make do with what you have. That's one of the few good points of growing older."

Suddenly, growing older doesn't seem so bad. I wonder what it'll be like when I'm in my mid 30's? Seems rather exciting.

Carine Roitfeld

The photo above makes me smile. Goes to show that Carine Roitfeld looks very, very approachable. Also, there's a nice little story over at Jak & Jil about an encounter with La Roitfeld. Read it and I'm sure you will smile even more.
