    reminds me that I need to buy some red lipstick. I feel that this is like a brunette, calmer version of agyness deyn. Love her coat!

    Amazing how a face can redeem an outfit.

    She would look like a bum (in my opinion) if it wasn’t for her sharp features, perfect face and that amazing lipstick.

    It is great that the first thing to pop out at me are her red lips. If they were any other shade it would have been the coat.

    I’m not sure about this outfit. It’s an art student kinda outfit. She looks a bit to mature for it.
    And I can’t quite figure out what’s happening around her feet! Is she wearing socks over those tights?

    She looks great! If i had seen each item of clothing individually i would said it could never work but i’m clearly very wrong. The lipstick and sharp haircut are what pulls it together for me.

    It must be the lips – they make the coat seem so perfect

  24. john benjamin pritchett

    It’s one of those looks I have to stop and think about but she pulls this off well with great hair, lipstick and makeup. Oh, and those long legs!!

    you know, i agree with everyone in that the whole outfit works.. it’s great! but i hate, hate, hate the socks over the tights/leggings. and if her shoes were a little more polished, the way her face/hair is, the whole thing would work so much better!

    Why the socks with the tights? That don’t make no sense to me. Why not red socks? Just asking. Other than that the look is great, esp the red lipstick, wish I could wear red lipstick!

    OK. If you do come to Canada I would definitely skip London, Ontario, contrary to that other poster’s suggestion. :) Is no one else seeing a young Julie Andrews in that face? I’m loving the dance shoes paired with the lumberjacket. Growing up in Toronto the boys who hung out in their basements playing Dungeons and Dragons wore coats like that with cutoff jeans. She’s really working the 80s with great humour.

    THis is so amazing that you’re posting this today, because I’ve been wearing a buffalo checked coat for the past few winters — it’s a real Woolrich hunting jacket complete with gun sleeve in the back. And I love it!

    But just the other day I decided to pair it with a bright red lipstick and it changed everything — from geek-chic to just plain chic! This girl knew it all along!

    I get a lot of compliments on it, and I wear it with everything, but it looks best as I did it today with a pencil skirt, black tights, and boots.

    We used to call this type of plaid coat “the Kenora dinner jacket.”
    (Kenora being a small town in northern Ontario, and just north of Minnesota.)

    Needless to say, it’s been turned into something elegant here, mostly because of those gorgeous looooong legs.
    Not sure about the rolled up denim shorts, however.

    My first reaction was, “non j’aime pas ca du tout”, but her beautiful legs, her elegance, and her face redeem her and I can appreciate this outfit on her. Anyone else with a less striking physique might look, hmm, average?

    This could be one of the very best ways to wear a winter-y jacket and shorts in the wintertime in LA when there’s really no “winter.” I see she’s layered the buffalo plaid over a blazer. The only thing I’d change to adapt to LA environs is I’d layer a vest instead of a blazer just for comfort’s sake.

    “Kenora Dinner” jacket is what I’ve always heard them referred to as well.

    I’ve got another one that I’ve coined – “the Sudbury Perm” can anyone relate?
