    love love love the top one. adventurous and it has just enough geometry and disorder to work. i dont think any of the pieces paired with more simple pieces would look as good.

    There's something about the coat in the first photo that is a bit reminiscent of a bathroom rug but I do like the idea behind it. The second photo contains some great details, such as that vest and the boots and the shine of the pants.

    Regarding the shoes, the top image shows a pair of Marni ankle boots, and the bottom image a pair of Frye Harness boots.

    I LOVE the leather boots and vest or is that a jacket?? in the second picture. I am not so keen on gold sparkle, I think it throws the look of. but it is very bold and courageous!

    clearly very spendy and very high-end bag lady inspired. Love 'em. I would echo the comment that the individual pieces would not be nearly as effective alone but I really like the pow-wow bracelet anyway.

    Details, details-the devil is always in the details, isn't it? Even if you don't love how these items are pieced together, it is really the visual image of how each element contrasts and works against and, surprisingly, with the other ones. Style and fashion are driven by taking risks. Assembling and disassembling, then reassembling all the many disparate elements are what drives people to design, create and just plain old decide what to put on before heading out the door. Would I necessarily counsel a woman to wear these things together? Probably not. However, with a bit of tweaking and adaptation, these two outfits could be made quite runway ready and commercially viable. The doubters of the world may only see two odd outfits. Others of us see some possibilities here.

    I find it funny that so many people were dissing the girl in the mother daughter pic for her denim harem pants, but I haven't seen one negative comment about either of these get-ups. That said, expensive or not, I'll pass on both of these hodge-podge hot messes…

    Thank goodness for those who dress like this, even if they are waiting for the bus back to the crazy costume factory. But aren't we all in costume and isn't that the fun?

    I love that Michaela has used the same shoes and jacket but come up with two totally different outfits!
    I love this outfit! I'm not sure why… my head is telling me that it's all wrong, and yet somehow it just works

    photo # 1 is a bit too crowded IMO… but nice boots! :D

    i dig photo # 2 instead :D, the layering had nicely put the leather vest in the middle of two laid-back cotton shirts… love the sequined gold legging too! and… nice boots!

    The second one rocks, but the first one, not so much. Just because it's a bunch of random (and arguably independently ugly) stuff put together by someone in Paris doesn't mean that it's fashionable, or even necessarily that creative.

    But I do covet the gold leggings.

    I know that if I left the house in either of those get-ups, I'd look a prize fool. But the clash of textures and colours makes for such pleasing images. In the second photo, I completely adore the contrast between the earthy, rustic leather and white cotton, and the spangly gold of the leggings. Joyous!

    I don't the top one is working, too much of a rag-lady. I love the bottom one. Of course the faces are important in deciding if this is working.

    I agree with John Doyle. The second outfit is really quite clever in its eclectic quirky way. Love the boots with the bling-y pants, and the white cotton shirt and leather vest are exactly right. The crumpled prince-of-wales cotton check (belongs to her man!) on top of it all is the least happy piece of the combo, but it's still ok. It's harmony to me. However, the first one is just hideous. Really ugly. Not in a million could you convince me otherwise – this is just lack of taste. Sorry……..

    don't like the shag carpet for coat. fab bracelets.

    Both are very creative and appealing, but I'm not a fan of the little booties in the second shot.

    What? So only the positive comments get posted? Hmmm, okay, let me try again.

    As far as both these looks go, IMHO, more is not better. Love some of the individual pieces in the second look, but feel a bit of editing is needed.

    I just had a dream about this gold sequin pants picture last night. So funny. I had no reaction when i saw it yesterday though. And in my dream i was also wearing 60's style blk coat and wondering if you will take my picture. :)
    Apparently, you and your pictures are haunting me. in a good way.
    BTW, it was very nice to meet you in SF.

    i love the way there is a bit of organic cotton with a dark leather hyde and a cotton coat to soften the look… the gold leggings just picks up the dark colors…a beautifully poetic way to wear shine
