EXcellent shopping outfit. Comfortable yet funky. I love that super-long hoodie with the little leather vest. The gold/silver boot/bag mix is cool too. She’s gorgeous.

The shiny vest and the metallic booties are great counterpoints to the rest of the outfit. Her sleek hair adds to the mix.

I like the shoes…Couldn’t pull them off myself, but still like the look!

She’s adorable and she’s got all the trends nailed down.

I gotta add more shine to my wardrobe. One gold or silver piece can add so much to a simple ensemble!

i love everything except the shoes and the purse, nor do i like the mix of the two colors in one outfit.
December 22, 2006 at 10:49 am
She’s pulled it all together really well.
December 22, 2006 at 10:58 am
She looks like an updated Naomi!!! Nice.

I love this- Especially the layered hoodie and vest with the gold shoes.
December 22, 2006 at 11:36 am
I like the short dress with the tights.
Don’t know what I think about bronze AND silver. I like metallics as an accent, but this may be more variety than I’d do.
The good thing is that she hasn’t overdone the outfit. If you’re going to go multi-accent then the dark outfit is the right.

The boots and the bag are a nice surprise for this type of outfit and a great addition.

Her skin is flawless and even it doesn’t take away the kind of elfin look of her ensemble. I just don’t like this look because it hovers too closely to sloppy.
December 22, 2006 at 12:31 pm
oh my…i adore those boots.
December 22, 2006 at 2:02 pm
oh she has my dreamshoes!!! altough I want them Marc Jacobs in black, she pulls off the golden ones great!

This is the second time I have seen that purse on this blog. I still think it is too big, but then again, I am not one to favor hauling a big bag like that. The closest thing to a “purse” anyone will see me carry is my cousin’s diaper bag (if I am babysitting) or my camera bag.
Even then, I always try to keep my belongings to the bare minimum (keys and small wallet for cash and cards) so I can put it into a pocket. With so many people out shopping this time of the year, I just don’t want to take chances on getting robbed.

marc jacobs boots

Fabulous look from a lovely woman…Cortni, I miss you!
December 22, 2006 at 5:08 pm
Beautiful girl.Beautiful, beautiful legs.
Ugly, ugly boots.
December 22, 2006 at 5:50 pm
Love a strong black woman! Awesome!

Puff sleeved hoodie tunic (by Rojas?) – so classically comfortable but of-the-moment. Want it.
December 22, 2006 at 6:45 pm
For some reason I think the shoes killed the whole outift. But aside from the shoes it’s a very cute look.
December 22, 2006 at 6:49 pm
the bag… what a beautiful bag.
December 22, 2006 at 7:01 pm
i love how hip hop is incorporated into her personal style, i don’t think enough people come up with their own shit these days. one of my favorites.
December 22, 2006 at 8:07 pm
i’ve been seeing those crazy, moon shoe/snow boot/high heel/metallic boots around town recently. where are they from? they are pretty cool.
December 22, 2006 at 9:20 pm
love the shoes
December 23, 2006 at 12:31 am
I like her vest… and that’s just about it. Those are some ugly looking boots.
December 23, 2006 at 12:49 am
holy crap, those shoes are incredible!
December 23, 2006 at 8:31 am
mmm, i love this.
December 23, 2006 at 6:59 pm
Sort of a Naomi Campbell look to her. I don’t know if I like the shoes ( I certainly couldn’t carry them off), but she looks good in a specific way.
December 23, 2006 at 7:11 pm
What a presence! Always proud of my fellow Black ladies. While I’m not a fan of the boots – though she can definitely pull them off – I commend you (and her) for recognizing that you can be a fashionable lady and have a some meat on your bones. I’m real tired of girls with no shape.
December 24, 2006 at 7:23 am
To me the boots look a little bit Star Trek but they lift the outfit out of the ordinary. she is one hot ‘don’t mess with me’ mama
December 25, 2006 at 10:28 pm
I love the black on black and gold boots. Tres funky and comfty.
December 26, 2006 at 1:39 pm
I love the way she put this together – the proportions are great – but I would have loved it even more with the bag *or* the boots. Worn together, it’s way too trendy for my taste.
December 28, 2006 at 2:41 pm
She’s better than Naomi.
I think her bag is Helmut Lang, I THINK. I had wanted to get one myself that looked just like it but was all black.
love your blog

December 30, 2006 at 11:08 am

I cannot express how much i love this outfit. The short sleeves over long sleeves thing works so well!
January 7, 2007 at 4:06 pm
God how I love the sistas representing on this blog. I would kill for those shoes.
February 12, 2007 at 4:11 pm
