Wow, I really wish I could see this the way everyone else does. But this is a picture of everything about seventies fashion that I wish would go away forever: lank hair, shapeless, enveloping coats, color combinations like blue plus brown.
I know smokers are the only people standing outside at this time of year but sometimes I think this blog is an advertisement for phillip-morris! Although, on the flip side, the PC police would have no problem if she were smoking a joint. I always look at things from both sides.
Like the color combination, and she definitely has her own style–much respect to that–but there's something about this look that just doesn't come together for me. It's sort of Suzi Quatro Goes To Beauty School… and that's just too much cognitive dissonance. I still appreciate & enjoy her creativity and style, though.
Side note: Do people really need to "tsk-tsk" about every photo of a smoker on this blog? Yes, we all know that smoking isn't healthy. Yes, we all understand that quitting is a good idea (hell, I did it years ago). But, honestly, most of the anti-smoking comments come across as sanctimonious and self-congratulatory … and those are certainly not stylish attitudes.
OMG I LOVE her shoes…. They at least give off that feeling of being well-worn, and they are so now! I don't know if she bought them this way or if she found them in an older sister's closet, but I dig, big.
