I love the interesting pop of color in a pair of shoes!

It would appear that the first example is one of those Doc Martens by CDG, for which I could never find retailers- I ended up picking up a pair from my thrift store!!! The second example, my favorite are the well-worn oxfords by the guy slightly to the left of center. As the NYT was pointing out, people look at 2-3 things: your watch, your belt, your shoes. You can create an expensive or trendy outfit with these 3 and some basics. I guess for women we would add a handbag? Again, buy a classic! Great pictures!!! Jorge from WPB

Brave but misguided.

Those blue shoes are divine! Rianna Bethany xxxxxxxxxx
March 5, 2009 at 8:25 am
Ah, I totally adore the Docs with the floral pattern! It is just so hard to find anything like this here.
March 5, 2009 at 8:27 am
YAY!!! 8-) YSL and Doc Martens – I’ve never came across such a mix!So much fun!!!!
March 5, 2009 at 8:29 am
great coat and blue shoesflower shoes is spring time now
March 5, 2009 at 8:30 am
Does anyone know where this fabulous coats from?
March 5, 2009 at 8:37 am
We all had those Dr Martens when we were teens…OMG, they still look fab !But nowadays, I would prefer to (try) walk in those turkish silky blue ones…Very SACT-like…
March 5, 2009 at 8:40 am
:O love the floral docs! so quirky <3
March 5, 2009 at 8:45 am
The shape of this coat is magnificent! Also love the idea of a sleeveless coat. Not to mention the shoes…
March 5, 2009 at 8:47 am
That coat is unbelievable!!! I love the electric blue pumps too. WOW. So who designed the coat??
March 5, 2009 at 8:53 am
Love the detailing in the first pic and those blue, what look like platform heels are awesome as well
March 5, 2009 at 8:54 am
fresh like uuhhh….
March 5, 2009 at 8:57 am
this is prada from 07, if i’m not mistaken.
March 5, 2009 at 9:06 am
The first picture makes me wonder if that’s a male or a female. I mean, looking at the shoes, makes me think girl because of the designs and prints but the actual structure of the boots makes me think man. Then the purse, well it’s bulky, short handles, that’s a man bag, and then I spied that long strap, and lack of pockets, it it a purse? The hand, could be either one and the watch seems to be for a man, but who knows…Oh, and btw, I am a lover of peacoats but I hate the back of this one
March 5, 2009 at 9:08 am
indeed! dramatic they are
March 5, 2009 at 9:09 am
oh I love the blue shoes! they brighten up an everyday outfit. The bag on the top photo I have the same one, couldn’t live without it!

March 5, 2009 at 9:14 am
I love both of these looks!
Particularly the young lady with the blue shoes. Not only is her coat beautiful and unique, her shoes are enviable :)
March 5, 2009 at 9:25 am
oh man those floral doc martens are so great
March 5, 2009 at 9:26 am
first coat is great, but that crop on the neck….

March 5, 2009 at 9:49 am
Wow! Nice coat and I do like the boots, but I really like the bag.
March 5, 2009 at 10:16 am
Those blue heels are absolutely gorgeous! I also love how the lady on the left has a blue backpack too.

The cut of that sleeve in the first photo is genius!
March 5, 2009 at 10:32 am
I love the look of the woman next to the one who has received all the attention: Marginal and discreet elegance. All in the details.
Thank you for inspiring me every morning!
March 5, 2009 at 10:35 am
I saw a pair of floral doc martins at a shop in NYC in the late 80s, and I didn’t buy them because I just couldn’t afford them (I think they were probably $100, which might have been a million for how broke I was in those day.) I will always regret those boots!!

The last picture’s coat is out of this world, I love it! and the blue shoes aren’t bad either…
March 5, 2009 at 10:50 am
Those flowered shoes are just loverly. What a delightful way to herald in the spring! :)
March 5, 2009 at 11:11 am
Like it, like it, like it! Yes! Especially the shoes from both pictures.
March 5, 2009 at 11:14 am
Yes, the coats are Prada, I’ve got the same one but with regular sleeves and without the bow on the strap across the back. Best coat I’ve ever had!
March 5, 2009 at 11:19 am
Oh! I am in love with the proportions on this coat.
March 5, 2009 at 12:11 pm
the first coat is perfection. prada? of course prada. genius!
March 5, 2009 at 12:26 pm
Who’s the brilliant mind that thought of this coat? Who’s the brilliant mind that was attracted to wearing this coat and wearing it with these stand-out shoes. Brilliant!
Oooo, my brilliant mind remembers the flowered docs from an earlier post. I bet this is the same woman with the metallic purse, gray dress and metallic-y jacket.
March 5, 2009 at 12:42 pm
i like how the backpack offsets the adorable shoes!!!! and it wasn’t even intentional!
March 5, 2009 at 12:46 pm
i LOVE the doc.martens, and they look especially goodd there…
March 5, 2009 at 1:13 pm
They are both great but I love the boyish feel of the first photo the best. It’s effortless.
March 5, 2009 at 1:33 pm
Very Paul Smith’ ish
March 5, 2009 at 1:45 pm
why cant we see their faces? haha
March 5, 2009 at 1:48 pm
Coats and shoes may come and go, but the coat in the second photo is a dream.
March 5, 2009 at 2:16 pm
where’s the bag in the first pic from? YSL?
March 5, 2009 at 2:32 pm
LOve the coats – but I would look like a misguided granny if I wore those doc martens.
March 5, 2009 at 2:35 pm
Love the coats, not entirely sold on the shoes though.
March 5, 2009 at 2:37 pm
Whoh, floral Docs.. which fabulous blogger doesn’t have them yet? And the coats are both to have a lot of pleasant, but haunting dreams about.
March 5, 2009 at 3:09 pm
Those blue ones are the best heels in weeks.
And…it seems, 90% of all the stylish ladies are wearing Louboutin’s!
March 5, 2009 at 3:10 pm
both of those coats are amazing!
March 5, 2009 at 3:48 pm
Both are superb.
March 5, 2009 at 4:14 pm
BLUE SHOES! Uber ferocity. Love the YSL bag also in the first pic.
March 5, 2009 at 4:50 pm
We can see real fashion statement on both pictures. Strong and even a little risky look is all we need on the streets to feed this kind of blogs.
March 5, 2009 at 6:13 pm
Both coats are great…the look with the blue shoes is superb! Love not only the color, but the proportions of everything too.
March 5, 2009 at 8:52 pm
The shoes are just stunning…stunning!
March 5, 2009 at 11:49 pm
i have those floral docs! i bought them when i was a teenager and absolutely loved them, but haven’t worn them in years and years. i have been trying to summon up the courage to wear them again over the past year or so. now i think i’ll finally do it.
March 6, 2009 at 12:38 am
Love the Muse!
March 6, 2009 at 2:15 am
Interesting…The pumps are nice.

Photo 2: beautiful. The coat is really beautiful. And the shoes just top it off.
March 6, 2009 at 7:29 am
Those shoe must be giving her that posture problem.
March 6, 2009 at 9:31 am
The first picture!Wow!..the photographs here seem to be getting increasingly inspiring.
March 6, 2009 at 12:22 pm
The boots look like Oilily but i have never seen the Do Martens so could be wrong.
March 6, 2009 at 12:39 pm
oh, the shape of the coat is abs musthave for me!
March 6, 2009 at 3:19 pm
All I can say is
F E R O S H!!
March 6, 2009 at 5:51 pm
nice coat! the color of the shoes is unusual. is that leather? very curious.
March 7, 2009 at 1:07 am
Very lucky to have the owner of a cobalt blue backpack next to the wearer of the cobalt blue shoes. And a cobalt blue sweater ahead of them. But you seen to have great photo luck.
Is the blonde wear Louboutins? I like the blonde purse with the blonde hair and everything else dark.
I wonder what they are waiting for. Interesting group, even from behind.
March 7, 2009 at 7:18 am
oh oh the blue shoes are beautiful !!!!!!!
March 7, 2009 at 9:12 am
(just a side note – the girl on the right in the second picture looks a little like Blake Lively)
I love, love, love the first coat, definitely something I’d wear. The second is cool, but I’m not a fan of sleeveless outerwear (probably because I live in a Nordic climate and it just doesn’t make sense). But for me, the shoes and the Docs make the picture – nothing like good footwear to create a memorable outfit.
March 7, 2009 at 6:46 pm
The blonde reminds me of my wife. Beautiful hair, handbag, coat, Louboutins, legs! Simple and stunning.
March 8, 2009 at 7:23 am
The Juxtaposition of the Jansport is probably the most progressive fashion piece I’ve seen in a while. So stupid-it’s awesome..some next level fashion!!
March 8, 2009 at 8:19 am
Excellent! Love both coats – thought they were the same but now I’m not sure…

March 8, 2009 at 10:36 am
Love the Docs – so very 80s.
I still wear my purple pair. Does any one know the brand of gum called “Thrills”. That’s the colour they are.
March 8, 2009 at 11:35 pm
I like the random backpack ;)
March 9, 2009 at 2:57 am
Really love the whole ensemble of the first photo. Somehow I don’t think it suffers from trying to hard. It’s playful!

March 9, 2009 at 5:03 am
what stunning coats for starters, and yes the shoes rock! Bravo – great spotting…
March 9, 2009 at 1:22 pm
I like the blonde girl’s outfit better. Love her coat. Hot.
March 9, 2009 at 3:33 pm
I love the Doc Martens more than the YSL bag.
March 9, 2009 at 5:44 pm
oh.my.word. those blue pumps…i don’t know what to say. I want them to materialize out of the photo and onto my feet.This is another example of one of hundreds of photos you are able to capture so candidly. I love it.
March 9, 2009 at 7:27 pm
The floral docs are wonderful. But looks a bit odd with the big boots, wide coat hem, large bag… and very skinny legs!
Also, the bag and the boots each look great on their own. But if I were going out in those boots I would find a more striking bag – one in a colour picked out from the boots, or something thoroughly outrageous like stripes or checks. This look doesn’t do justice to those boots.
March 9, 2009 at 7:31 pm
In the blue-shoes photo I agree with those who love the look of the young Palomino on the right. All sexy wavy lines – from the pony’s tail to the black-stocking legs.
I would like to OWN the blue shoes and grey coat, but I would like to BE the blondie.
March 10, 2009 at 11:48 am
the shoes are pure brilliance !!
best I’ve seen in a while..
March 10, 2009 at 3:22 pm
He He… I noticed a few comments about the blonde to the right and my first thought was boring…. and typical. Body clinging coat, Louboutin’s, long blonde hair… but I think it’s really the gutsy coat and shoes next to her that make me think such.
March 11, 2009 at 1:36 am
Oh, how I have always loved those floral Doc Martens. So nice to see them out and about! And the bow coat with the blue shoes… Perfect.
March 12, 2009 at 6:01 pm
oh my gosh i love those docs!!!!!
March 14, 2009 at 8:40 am
love how the blue jansport back and the blue in the far back are in this picture to complement to lady’s fab shoes.
July 10, 2009 at 11:04 pm
I had those Docs as a teen!
August 27, 2009 at 8:18 pm
i just love looking at those bright blue shoes! oh and the coat is just magnificent! 10/10 for this one!

I want the drop waist to come back!
March 2, 2012 at 7:31 am
I love the second shot!
Beautiful colour and perfect heel size, they must be
I like the courage of the first flowery pair instead
but wouldn t wear them..
