love the pink version… altho i don’t think her look really showcases them. finally found a replacement pair of floral Dr. Marten’s on ebay –for a steal– $50! they bring back so many fond memories of alterna yesteryear.
all the details are so beautiful…. her sunglasses! (and i’m not a sunglasses person at all) her PURSE! and her docs. i was going to suggest that they’re high-end doc marten imitations, but they have the tell-tale yellow stitching. i wonder where she got them in that lovely pale mauve color.
She totally had me up until the shoes. I can’t buy it as a intentional choice, but rather as a “I have no other practical shoes to wear but these” decision, hehe. I think it is because I often choose footwear that way myself.
I love this! Her look is simultaneously elegant and casual, and the Doc Martens gives what would have been a granny outfit (not that granny is bad) its edge. Sophisticated coat + hip shoes = pure style.
This fur collar looks to me like it is on a vintage coat. I own a bunch of vintage fur coats. I figure that even if those little critters lived out their little critter lives to hoary old age, they would still be dead. so I wear my mom’s 1957 fur with no guilt.
I love the fact that you’ve allowed the comments box to go popup instead of us having to go away from the pics while we comment..thanks, Sart! I love her outfit, not least because it seems so cosy, it must be cold. And I love the comibnation of hat, odd shoes and frame bag.
She’s a little bit Ali Macgraw, another little bit Mia Farrow in the Great Gatsby and another little bit fabulous! I love the proportions – large (luxurious) and simple especially those sunnies and the coat!
sorry…but this seems like a mismash to me. I agree with what angela said. Seems like she looked around and decided those were the warmest most practical walking shoe she had. (And honestly, I don’t think doc’s have been “out” for long enough for everyone to grow so nostaligic!) Imagine this outfit with a truly forward modern shoe..
I forgot to mention my love for Doc Martens before. When i was a teen i used to have a Doc Martens poster that said “Majority rules only those who let them.” :P I don’t think it suits her look though. nor her.
“now i must face the drudgery of stressing common knowledge:” No one likes hypocritical hippies. Leather is no different than fur, and I hear no complaining about the Docs – which happen to be a fantastic counterpoint to the rest of the outfit.
