    And the "Use Your Brain, Not Your Ego" challenge continues. Wow, what can I say about this incredible lady? In a few words: All over the chart but nicely done. I couldn't go here, but she obviously can and does it well. Her smile is infectious, and her legs are great. Power to the creative ones, for they push us forward to find ourselves!

    It's funny to see how a "so thought about" look can give you an idea of easy-going, relaxed and not worried style. How she choose our clotheds says something about who we are, and how we want to put ourseleves out there, so I find it funny to see how dress codes are, somehow, "double identities"… However, don't get me wrong, I like her style, it's very well put together in a way that you feel she's aprochable but still very "chic" as we say in france :)
    VoilĂ !

    Love the colours of the scarf(lam), sweater and skirt/dress together, but the fabrics/textures are a mismatch to me. I wonder though, maybe a different bag would have brought it all together (for me). Somehow I feel that an less 'aggressive' bag (i.e. not black, but a soft colour, yet one outside the colour range of the sweater) might have done the job. Also, very curious to know what shoes she chose to complement this outfit.

    What's it got on its feetses?

    Cute outfit, but probably not very warm from the top of the thighs down.

    (She might want to worry about that tarantula on the top of her head.)

    scott, since you are a man in the know and in the cold of new york….could you please please recommend the best parka to buy. i am not asking for much…just very warm but nicely fitted, lovely big hood (but no silly fury trim), ideally khaki….see, very straight forward…except that i can't find it anywhere!! (and i have been looking for ages) ….i know spring is coming but we are still in february in the cold. beside it should be a design classic, shouldn't it! any tips would be very very welcomed. thanks!

    She's simply too old to still be wearing a minishkirt. Mutton dressed as lamb. (I'm 44 yrs. old myself, probably within a year or so of the subject.) The logoed purse is gauche. Love the scarf and the sweater. Again, there's an age limit on the stocking cap.

    I think it's great, but that's how I dress INDOORS in winter. Outside, I would have another layer plus a big, heavy coat on top. As for her legs, well, I tend to wear thick leggings (even ski pants) under pants. I am looking at all the winter pictures and thinking, isn't it cold in NY right now? Why aren't these people dressed? I love to look good, but I HATE to be cold.

    I have to say I just don't understand New York women when it's cold and they dress in skimpy little skirts and pumps and then throw a big ol' sweater on. WTF? It's seriously as stupid as a 15 year old girl wearing a tank top and shorts in the rain just to look cute. I don't care how cute you look it's just DUMB.

    Ha! Very intereting example of "gifted person"… I will not wear this items mixed together (however, every single one is great!) because I do think it will not make me look good… BUT THIS WOMAN IS GIFTED: she knows exactly what to wear to look cool, somehow intriguing / a little excentric and still chic…Respect

    This is the perfect example of what a fine line there is between Fabulously Impish and Bus-Station-Lady Crazy. She's firmly on the side of the former, thankfully, but she's a snagged stocking and a bit of smeared lipstick away from the latter. Her smile and gorgeous skin is what holds this all together. Applause.

    To those who say she's too old for the look–bah. She's not trying to look young (_that's_ tacky); she's simply wearing a very silly ice-skating skirt, probably to have some fun with the icy weather, and mixing it with some contrasting pieces. One is never too old for a sense of whimsy and individual style. (And the opaque tights save the mini from being too… that unpleasant thing that miniskirts can be.)

    Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. There's nothing I would change about this outfit; it's perfect! To anyone who says she's too old for it, jealous much? BWAHAHAHA. Jealous of her courage, jealous of her originality, probably mostly jealous of her body! She looks so sweet, too, like the kind of person I'd want to have tea with. As for the weather factor, the top makes up for the bottom. I know from experience~ She's probably wearing another thick sweater and maybe a thermal shirt under the knit one.

    Nice, maybe she has thermal underwear under that knit? :D Love the pink skirt :)
