    Very classy. Very 50s. The boots give a sort of 80s twist, which is great.

    This is all really lovely. It seem both old world and at the same time modern.

    I could not imagine this without the black bag – I think something in a brown range would have been too soft.

    Amazing.

    Audrey Hepburn (trying to not sound cliche here) would have worn this. In fact, I am sure she did pair a white turban with a fur coat and a chain bag before…

    Either that or it harks back to the forties, when the “Exotic East” look was in. Rita Hayworth would have done this in “Shalom” – Love it! I would stop dead in my tracks if I saw this vision coming towards me :)

    She looks so glamorous and cozy. I'd show more hair from underneath the turban like the woman wearing the satin-y pink one from an earlier post. I'm diggin' the turbans. I used to see them as grandma gear. As a matter of fact, I'm buying and/or making one and being prepared for the occassion or place I can wear it. Build it, they will come.

    Great balance of blk & wht. Sheer blk hose are still sexy.

    it’s not my style but this woman has got it together. i love the simple color palette complicated by textures of the coat, bag, stockings and even suede boots.

    Love the neckline of the coat but the fur does look somewhat matted. Suppose that continues the Grey Gardens theme though…

    Her coat, sunglasses and even headdress remind of chic chic women around the time when Coco Chanel was alive and kicking, in the literal sense.
    Yet she smartly modernizes it with the booties and bag.
    And those leggings are perfectly sheer.

    tres tres tres magnifique.

    So fifties! So cuddly!

    The odd pinkish color of the coat is what sparks the fifties associations, and she knew it and went for the turban. Very smart!

    If the turban had matched the coat, it would have looked laughable. That it is slightly off makes it look intelligent.

    I like all the different lengths that people are wearing these days. No one’s partial to any one length. Whatever works!

    This is one woman who is equal parts smart and sexy.

    Kudos!

    There should be an MG roadster waiting for her around the corner.
