    Are these “women of a certain age?”

    The one on the left with the light brown ensemble puts me in a state of dithering. What is that brown thing? Is it a plaid toga? Should it not be summerwear?

    The other lady looks nice.

    For some reason, I want them to switch shoes.

    It is amazing how good and colorful these tones can look. It is all about the fabrics and patterns. I much prefer this look to the pastels and cheery colors my friends wear– to me, this IS a very cheery look.

    First time I have ever seen someone wear sunglasses in the winter in NYC!! :)

    Where I live, most people wear sunglasses year-round because the sun shines about 350 days of the year. People who don’t wear them are automatically labelled as tourists or just plain wierd.

    Interesting. There’s something intriguingly “Braveheart shops Madison Ave” about these looks. In a good way.

    They both look great, although I prefer the one on the right. I especially love the fur lining inside of the jacket (hopefully it’s not real) and even the tan boots were a nice touch.

    But after inspecting the picture again, I may be biased towards the brunette because of her stance. She has a more confident aura about her and presents her look really well, while the blonde is just standing there leaning in towards the brunette. I think in comparison, the brunette just stands out more because not only is she dressed well, but she knows it and you can tell.

    I love those brown pumps with the gray stockings that the woman on the left is wearing. The fit of the woman on the right’s coat is perfect for her outfit. I’m not a big fan of the huge plaid dress or the furry scarf, though.

    The plaid dress is definitely a Marc Jacobs Fall 06. (70% off now at the San Francisco Marc Jacobs store on Maiden Lane.) It’s a beautiful construction with just layers and layers of cloth – and pockets!

    the sum is greater than the parts: I like these women together better than either individually and the way their shoes echo the colors in the others’ dress is a big plus for the photo. In real life, you can’t always stand next to some one in a complimentary outfit!

    THANK YOU, SART! These women are clearly not 20 somethings, but stylish, beautiful and hip. I loved my 20s, but I wouldn’t go back there for all the money in the world. These gals exude the confidence and elan that I feel more at 40 than I ever did before.

    I only want to say “fashion victims”, 8:17, because of this trend of light brown leather shoes with the grey woolen leg wear of the season (which I love). I think this makes four women you have shown with this combo. It is very depression era – The Waltons – Mary Ellen. The statement is brown leather footwear is the new basic black shoe, a natural outgrowth of being encouraged to accessorize the grey of the season with bling gold. (I.E. gold translated into warm brown/camel.) This I see as working a trend and i liked it a lot the first time I saw but now that I am seeing it so much I am getting over it. So they look nice, very fashiony, but super duper vogue trendy to me because of this. I think i will stick to the classical black and grey combo. Or at least a very dark brown, darker than the grey which never looks trendy.

    Wow, I’m completely miffed on this one. I’m usually so in sync with the fellow Sart’ers, but I just am not loving this photo.

    I think the women are beautiful – sexy in a french ‘I’m 40 but hot’ way a la Jeanne Moreau or Simone Signoret, but the outfits don’t do it for me. The tights and shoes on the left – great. The coat and fur thingee on the right – great. But the exposed part of the scarf dress and the boots on the right really take away from the total thing.

    I’m just sayin’…

    In my day, garments gathered in front were notorious for weight gain, and tended to cause speculation about imminent motherhood. Wouldn’t do it with wool plaid in any case. But she’s brave to have gone there.
