pretty woman — beautiful skin and hair. ordinarily i would prefer to see the 3/4-length sleeves worn as they were designed to be worn, but in a look this casual it’s fine the way she’s layered the coat and the blouse and it’s a cute way to update a vintage piece.
Maybe she works in a warm office and the shoe goes better with what’s under her coat, but she had to wear the coat to get to work. Any advice for what to do in that situation, short of just bringing two pairs of shoes with you?
You have to bring two pairs of shoes. There’s no choice. Besides, do you really want to ruin your beautiful shoes (or watch the return on your investment go down) by walking them to work every day? That’s for your grunt shoes!
Thanks everyone! True about the shoes, if in my defense the vest underneath the coat matched the brown (still, good call). I have had more shoes reheeled living in NYC than I can count, methinks ‘grunt’ shoes might be necessary this winter. Could anything be more flattering than being on this site? I’ve been smiling since the picture request.
As for open-toed shoes, I often go entirely barefoot in all kinds of bad weather and the feet stay much warmer than you’d think. Then again, I live in Southern California and I’m an unfashionable dork.
I can’t say I like the proportions of the coat to the pant. And in the combination of the fabric and color of the coat makes it feel too heavy, maybe if she would have worn and nice pillowy dress underneath it, I think it may have been pulled off a little bit better.
