I love to look at the stylish New Yorkers you’ve been posting lately but everything about their outfits screams “Expensive!”Maybe a few more people whose complete ensembles probably total under $1000?
March 10, 2009 at 5:10 pm
Wow, thei soicture is amazing!! Would love to have her cape :)

Wonderful coat and leggings. The boots add flair and are great! On top of great style she’s beautiful! Wow! Terrific photo! Let her down gently, though, and tell her I’m already married…
This is the NYC cousin of the plain Parisienne. Better boots, better bag, but still too much black. Still funereal.
Also, it is more practical to wear a longer coat when wearing stretch pants/tights.

Follow-up – the bag in foreground would probably work for both men and women.

She looks cold!! This is why I avoid capes.
March 10, 2009 at 5:43 pm
I need those boots!!
March 10, 2009 at 5:49 pm
Absolutely love the buttons on the coat. And I would die to have those boots…
March 10, 2009 at 5:55 pm
GORGEOUS from head-to-toe = fierce!xx

We have seen those Michael Kors boots before, no? I love them.
March 10, 2009 at 6:03 pm

despite simplicity, there is always something New York that breathes through the photo lenses.
it’s the sardonic conflict in it’s inhabitants face, going somewhere, never posing, and beautifully oblivious to the fact of our glamarociousness.
March 10, 2009 at 6:22 pm
Are my eyes playing tricks on me, or are her buttons going from large to smaller?
March 10, 2009 at 6:23 pm
LOVE this. It just looks so personal…I feel like she very specifically bought every part of this. Simple and serious but still very sexy, but somehow she keeps it sweet also.
March 10, 2009 at 6:28 pm
It’s not necessary all expensive….I have that cape, and it’s Kate Moss for Top Shop last year. Love her look though.
March 10, 2009 at 6:43 pm
oh man.. its really chic everybody wearing black clothes…i hope winter here come quick!!!!cant wait to wear those black clothering!!!!!
March 10, 2009 at 6:59 pm
isn’t that one of the editors on the show about marie claire?
March 10, 2009 at 7:11 pm
Does anyone have a recommendation on where to buy great black leggings like these? they seem to be the perfect weight- not too bulky.
March 10, 2009 at 7:24 pm
Please tell me where I can find those boots!
March 10, 2009 at 7:51 pm
By including the purse in the foreground, are you asking us to replace the one she’s wearing?
I would. I think her outfit would be more dynamic with the first purse.
With all due respect to this lovely woman, she looks like a caped super-hero.
I don’t get the “bottomless” look but I especially don’t get it with a cape.
March 10, 2009 at 7:58 pm
how is the weather in nyc? i am coming on thursday and wondering what to pack?
March 10, 2009 at 8:04 pm
Is black the new black?

Could anyone tell me what bag is that /where can I find it? I absolutely love it !!!
March 10, 2009 at 8:17 pm
Love her look. Fantastic cape/coat, great boots. Don’t even need to mention the bag…
March 10, 2009 at 8:25 pm
Wow! She looks perfect to me.

Nice, other than the boots shes’s obviously struggling to stay upright in. Tant pis, cheri.
March 10, 2009 at 11:11 pm

March 10, 2009 at 11:19 pm
What a hot lady she is!

I agree with Peter (that guy who commented FIRST); but I have to say; I love her bag and BOOTS! HOW WONDERFUL!
March 11, 2009 at 3:51 am
the bag is so great and the shoes too, love the structure of the garment and the busy mood.
March 11, 2009 at 4:16 am
Love the whole look. The bag in the foreground is amazing.
March 11, 2009 at 5:19 am
Holy moly, gorgeous.
March 11, 2009 at 5:35 am
Burberry Lowry bag yes?
March 11, 2009 at 6:58 am
Why does everybody wear total black??——————My feeling is that it’s all about insecurity and the lack of confidence (or is it knowledge?) to deal with color…”You can’t go wrong with black” is the invariable and silly statement offered as a response…Ironic because consequently the message sent is: “I have no idea how to dress otherwise”!
March 11, 2009 at 7:00 am
A bit blah to me except for the bag. Why do New Yorkers have to dress in black top to bottom?
March 11, 2009 at 7:09 am
amazing shoes, love it!!!she’s so chic. Black is not only in Paris or NYC, it’s everywhere…
March 11, 2009 at 7:10 am
I’m leading here and now a crusade against black color…My feeling is that enough is enough! It doesn’t make sense that, for example in Sydney, on any given day in Summer when temperatures reach 40 degrees plus, the “stylish” go about town fully dressed in black sweating and gasping for air, does it? Whatever happened to the idea that one would tune in with the seasons which leaves little room for black especially in a country like Australia.
March 11, 2009 at 7:32 am
The buttons becoming larger from top to bottom really lends a bit of whimsy to that cape and maybe even to her.
Why are people afraid of color? I guess there’s less thought as to whether things work together if it’s all black. There are even professions where it really pays off and others where it’s the uniform of the day. Maybe that’s her life.
March 11, 2009 at 7:49 am
I’m not 100% sure but i think her bag is a PRADAAnyone knows for the boots??
March 11, 2009 at 8:08 am
i’d like to know the brend of that bag. love it.
March 11, 2009 at 8:22 am
boots, bag = burberry

I lover her look, but specially her boots…where can I get themmm??????
March 11, 2009 at 9:39 am
Three bags in one setting!
March 11, 2009 at 11:00 am
This is the perfect NYC outfit. She looks cold because it’s cold in NYC! But sometimes you have to deal with it and just look amazing… The Cape, bag and shoes are pure, simple perfection… I love it!!!
March 11, 2009 at 11:25 am
I AM IN LOVEEEEE WITH THISSSSSS. LOVE HER BOOTS AND BAGSSSSS.Wow, she’s great!
March 11, 2009 at 11:29 am
gahhh…. this is so good, i love the whole outfit. i thought this was one of editors at marie claire… glad to see i was right! such a good look and photo!
March 11, 2009 at 12:08 pm
I love LOVE women in leggings.
March 11, 2009 at 12:20 pm
She looks hot, so there’s not much bad one can say about the outfit.
March 11, 2009 at 1:55 pm
Hey its that one editor from Marie Claire shes on that new show running in heels on style network alot :)
March 11, 2009 at 2:36 pm
Great outfit! I love this blog!Does anyone know who makes these boots?Thanks

March 11, 2009 at 3:47 pm
Think she looks good – agree that the buttons are a beautiful detail. And Black.. what better way to emphasize silhouette?But mostly in this case i want to relish the photo: the depth, three dimensionality created by the three bags; the three light squares ( one on the wall, one in sticking out of her bag, and the sidewalk) Great composition, both hers and Scott’s.
March 11, 2009 at 4:05 pm
This woman and “Slashed” down below both look like they forgot their pants. And they both look freezing cold. It’s winter, people! I know you want to look cool, but didn’t your mother tell you to wear a hat and a scarf when you go outside? See Rei above.
March 11, 2009 at 4:06 pm
Love the cape! The buttons are divine… She does look cold, though.
March 11, 2009 at 5:46 pm
I love capes. Is this a cape she’s wearing? Anyway, why is there so much black everywhere? Black, black, black…blah, blah, blah.
March 11, 2009 at 11:06 pm
Cool!!! your coat! and your bag! cool!!
March 12, 2009 at 4:06 am
Is there such a thing as “NY Legs” – because if there is, I am quite confident that this is what see right here. Amazing.
March 12, 2009 at 8:05 am
I am getting so tired of these massive handbags everybody is carrying around. Small purse, please come back !
March 12, 2009 at 11:55 am
I agree that many people really can’t coordinate colors or don’t understand them. Wearing all black takes that issue off the table, but it’s giving up which is kind of sad. Also, if everything you own is black I guess you have unlimited combinations…
March 12, 2009 at 5:22 pm
LOVE THE SHOESSSS
March 12, 2009 at 10:05 pm
I DIE for that cape! And a couple of people asked, the bag is Burberry from a couple of seasons ago, Fall ’08 I think.
March 12, 2009 at 10:41 pm
One other practical idea about all black in winter in NYC: The city can get unbelievably gross this time of year.
There’s often unpredictable slush/sleet/snow/rain and all sorts of nastiness on every street corner. Let’s not even talk about the subway (although I doubt this woman ever rides the subway.) Certain colors are less practical. I always laugh when I see people in white parkas in New York and think, good luck…
March 13, 2009 at 2:01 am
black offers a constant chic for people who work a lot and don’t have to spend too much time on what they’re wearing. its effortless, flattering, and yes, it can look expensive whether or not it is.
she looks fantastic.
March 13, 2009 at 1:49 pm
So all black, all the time, is a cop-out? Not that she looks bad!
March 14, 2009 at 4:52 am
She looks damn good!
March 14, 2009 at 11:51 am
LOVE IT :) SO CHIC
March 14, 2009 at 12:34 pm
i love the whole look. from her hair to her jacket to her bag her leggings to her boots and of course how she carries it all. awesome photo.
March 15, 2009 at 7:18 pm
Beautiful hair matches perfectly with a totally black style. Great coat, great gloves, imagine if she knew brazilian handbags… Hers is good, but brazilian ones are amazing…Lilly Bastos

Black IS the new black! And that goes whether you’re in Washington or NYC. She totally rocks this look. The main thing about the ensemble is the proportions. She has it exactly right. The tights look like Wolford (to Anonymous, above)to me. For the record, I live in Sydney and I wear black. But I manage to stay cool all year round.
March 16, 2009 at 7:19 am
I Love that Tod’s Bag!
April 9, 2009 at 1:47 pm
She looks fashionable but she’s obviously freezing. Save the cape for when it’s warmer and wear something a little more weather appropriate.
April 13, 2009 at 11:29 pm
the bag is burberry and it’s still in stores. the boots are also from burberry – fall from last year. no longer in stores.
