    Loving the pleated maxi, and the textures of the jacket are amazing. Gorgeous outfit.

    Oh my oh my…I am swooning over that muffler of hers. Love the contrast of her hair against all the muted browns and greys. Great shot.

    Oh! The muff! The magnificence of the muff!
    And I mean that in the Victorian sense of the word.
    *she sniffs and adjusts her bustle primly*

    love the chanel muff and have never seen one, not even once, on the streets of manhattan.

    haven't seen women wearing long skirts during the day either.

    this is a beautifully elegant look, which seems so european to me.

    interesting how certain fashion looks don't make it across the atlantic, when they should.

    I love the leather jacket with the insert of a darker leather, and are those sleeves suede? It's a nice combination, especially since it is collarless. Makes the whole issue of whether to wear your shirt collar outside or inside redundant. I also love it with the softness of a pleated maxi, is that chiffon?

    It looks like she was having a fashion crisis and coulnd't decide between two or maybe even three outfits – the brown leather jacket with the black goth pleated shirt and the Debbie Gibson hat. It misses the mark entirely. Sorry.

    The romance of this makes me swoon. We are heading to Italy in 7 weeks (can you tell I'm counting?) I'm stuck in Minnesota this winter – the temperature has been below 20 for 2 months and snow almost daily. (-15 degrees tonight!) Minnesota fashion is an oxymoron. One can only wear practical boots, a down coat, a hat which flattens your hair and usually pants / jeans that you can tuck in your boots and a sweater to keep warm. No jackets under a down coat – not a good look! The salt and snow ruin everything. What freedom to dress like this. I am dreaming of it – and packing this weekend just to pretend the time is near.

    With her exceedingly slender build, white blond bangs and beautiful face, this woman would look good in virtually anything. My take is that she's wearing a long, almost formal, black dress and shiny necklace. The Chanel muff will become a glittery shoulder bag indoors. The quirky mix suits her but may have been assembled mostly for warmth. Once she removes the hat and jacket, she will still look elegant but not so imaginatively discordant.
