    A cowboy hat in New York City…even if it's furry…how different is that???


    January 31, 2011 at 9:06 am

    Love her style, however, the necklace is not really my thing… nevertheless, it's cool that she's wearing it!!

    Woah – now isn't that a statement piece. I'm sure the necklace will have lots of people talking (or tweeting) about it.

    A little over the top, but not out of the ballpark. I have to say I love it. I'm loving the mixture of black, and different hues of navy. The hat is great, the double wrap belt even better, the scarf to die for. Even the chicken necklace somehow works. Yes, she's styling "hard core" and I want her outfit. Nicely put together.

    Wish my trousers fit me like that. She'd be super cute without the necklace – but it makes the outfit that much more interesting. Nice contrast against all the dark.

    The colour palette is what strikes me. There have been only very few changes in shapes (well, there have been some but they have not been as dramatic as when, say, Hedi Slimane introduced his slim line) but there definitely is an early 2010s approach to colours.

    I think she nailed it. Proportion, texture, layering–check. The scarf is gorgeous and sophisticated, kind of an oversized ascot. The belt, furry hat and bag-yes, yes and yes. And I actually think the bird works here. It breaks up the field of blue, and personalizes the look in a way that's whimsical without being ridiculous. I kind of get who she is because of that bird. I'm hoping she works with children, because kids would really be drawn to her. Cute as a bug's ear, that one.

    Goodness gracious! So unique! So whimsical! Is there an extra flap of fabric on the back of the hat?

    I think this is a fun look. I don't think I'd wear it myself, but I could definitely use some elements of it for inspiration for my personal style. Not sure about the size of the bird, it doesn't really cohere with the rest of the outfit. It's certainly the star of the show! Personally, I think that the scarf could be the focal piece, because of its pattern. Maybe the bird could be a smaller element? Like, if the scarf were tucked in a certain way, and the bird was pinned on to secure it…

    It's a really fun look, though! I appreciate that she kept the colors simple and muted.

    I'm sure there is a background story with the chicken. I bet she does not wear it everyday but good on her for making it part of the day you photographed. I think it looks great as does the belt, the jacket, her wonderful eyebrows. What a cool and inspired look.

    Why is it really cool people on the street are NEVER wearing the clothes from the fashion shows?

    Now this I like! This is a really easy and personal style – not contrived at all like many I´ve seen on your blog. Isn´t it wonderful how people differ in their taste in style? While I´m really liking the hat and the crocheted chicken, others are telling her to lose it..

    Something tells me that there is an interesting story behind the bird. So while I may not like the hat, her overall look makes me want to know something more about her. At the very least if I saw her walking down the street I would have to smile and appreciate someone who doesn't hesitate to bring something original to her look.

    Studying the way the scarf is just looped somewhere at the collar area. The scarf makes the outfit for me but so many interesting elements. This is one of my top 10 ever faves. I love the way she looks the camera in the eye.

    I think I may copy her use of button holes for a scarf this Spring. It looks so original on her.

    She is so American inspired. This month's issue of Vogue briefly discusses our influence in Europe and this is a great example.

    Also, if she is wearing make-up, it's perfect! That is just what I hope to achieve with mine.

    Rock on, Milana! With that open, sweet smile, she could wear any necklace she wanted (although I can't think of anything more quirky and asynchronous than a yarn bird with button eyes) and STILL be absolutely stunning. Attitude is everything, and this lovely sweetness showing through is what makes this bird a cute chick instead of an albatross.

    The bird? I'm really at a loss there. The length is odd… Well, the whole bird is odd, down to his beaded feet. Put him in a window, and he'd sing.

    But her smile is so sweet! Love those dimples.

    oh that birdie necklace and the scarf! LOVE it. She adds quirky little touches to an otherwise boring-as-usual-all-black outfit and gets away with it. Is it her pretty face? Her hat? I think its the attitude and confidence; and her fine thin frame. OH…how I wish I am as thin and lanky. :)
