Wow. Some people really get it, don’t they? They have that ability to put things together in ways that many of us would never think of. The white tshirt, the green hat, the big black bag and plaid shoes. And it works wonderfully. Love it.
I love the outfit! The shoes still look uncomfortable. The gloves make me think she ditched the rest of her housecleaning gear for the photo – or she is about to go haz mat … If I could find a bag like that in not-leather though … woo whee!
For me, one of the best Sartorialist photos so far. That’s one of the good things about living in cold weather regions. Here in Brazil you can’t wear that. And i bet she don’t spend too much time in the mirror. Some people are born with good taste.
didn’t believe it was jennifer aniston for a second. i like parts of this, but other parts i would change. first of all, lets get some sheer, back seam tights on her, rather than her opaque. she needs a heel. take off that frumpy cardigan, and give her a black tranch. then yes. this girl would have looked so much better. not saying she doesn’t have the eye for style, she just needs to incorporate her style into her body-type.
I think she looks amazing, totally age appropriate and very alluring while still looking quite lady like. Yes some pieces may be a bit overly matched, but show me an American girl who pull of this level of sophistication at such a young age. Also most girls here would never opt for being this covered. I say well done, the world could use a lot more grace as this.
I know Milan is very cold in the winter. But the photo would have been enhanced if she allowed herself to smile. Because she hasn’t smiled, I sense a chill wafting from her. Also, how come the Milanese have all the gorgeous shoes, especially the women?
I feel the boxiness of the jacket and the boxy skirt are too much boxy. Have to agree also that the matched accessories are a bit much. Very lovely color green, though. All that said, it’s better than I would put together.
as soon as I saw the picture, without even reading the title, I thought jennifer aniston. well, not so much jennifer aniston, but rachel green. if friends were still on today, I can totally see rachel wearing this.
it’s the silhouette of the skirt that keeps it from being jennifer aniston, as it doesn’t hug her curves.
I love this–green is so original and unusual. So few people employ it as an accent color.
And I agree with the other posters–its not just JA that doesn’t take fashion risks; its generally Hollywood that doesn’t. Uber trendiness/giant fringed boots with your sloppy tie die t-shirt/the Olsen twins do not, in my opinion, count.
I feel like the looks I see on your blog are both far more accessible AND far more fashion forward–the ultimate combination!–than looks I see at the Oscars/on People.com/etc.
I love everything, especially the shoes. I love how she wore them with a dress or skirt. Hmmm…this is something I should try with my own oxfords that look like hers. And those gloves are leather, not rubber.
Dang! Who thought a Jennifer Anniston reference would bring out such haters? I see the resemblence. You were kindly asked to play along and think up a title for this pic. What, is participation demeaning, uncool, not individual enough, too challenging, not understood? What?
I think it’s funny that everyone is freaking out about Jennifer Anniston and how she would never be this daring… Frankly, I think anyone with a mild fashion sense can tell that Anniston is extremely…safe with her clothing choices and it’s pretty unnecesarry for everyone to taint this image with “Ha, Jennifer Anniston wishes!” etc. We KNOW the poor lady can’t dress and has bad luck with guys. I think all sart was saying was that she looks like her, and you can’t argue with that. Love the shoes.
i have a serious problem with the hatbody she has on her head. it’s not a hat, it’s a hatbody. its just the felt a milliner uses to make a hat. its an art so lost that people don’t even see how many raw felts are being used in editorials and on the street.
