This classic girl is Sarah. She was photographed on the streets of Leeds, UK by the Grazia Style Hunter Awards team. Here are the other pretty Leeds girls that are taking part in the awards.
I decided to vote for Sarah because she is dressed for success! She looks like such a go-getter and has a neat, put-together style. This PhD student is dressed really smart in a striped short nautical dress and a fitted blazer with rolled sleeves. I love her polished patent shoes and the naval badge on her dress adds some playfulness to this straight look.
What do you think about this preppy look?
I am excited for Manchester tomorrow. Come back and see what Stylish Goose votes on!
Follow-up Note: After posting this illustration, I was contacted by the lovely Sarah herself! She also has a very fashionable blog called mocha-soy-whippy, which I began checking out regularly.
It is always exciting when the girls I illustrate comment to introduce themselves to me. Makes me really happy to I hear from the real person who inspired the picture. So if you recognize yourself on Stylish Goose, please, drop me a line!
