    love the outfit….the peach/creamish top paired with teal legging really gives the outfit depth.
    on the other hand….don’t ever leave the house with slippers on..haha

    Lovely photo. the steam is the perfect foil for her coat. i love the colours. That big collar and beautiful hair (nice cut!) frames her face. The only thing that’s not working for me is the bare feet and shoes, they look like slippers, maybe she’s running out for a morning cup of coffee?

    looks like vintage persian lamb – love it in the dove hue. I don’t really like it with the open toe shoes. If it’s cold enough to wear a fur, then why are you running around with bare, exposed feet?

    It looked great until I got down to her shoes. I realize that it’s hard to walk around Manhattan in heels, but you can’t just kill a fur coat with flats.

    Love the billowing smoke (steam?) behind her. And the green tights are fab.

    I love it until I get to the shoes (which sadly I have to scroll down to see) then it reminds me a little too much of my Aunt Carmella going out to get the paper in her house dress and slippers. Although, to be fair, she was usually wearing taupe knee-hi’s, not green half-footed tights.

    I wasn’t too sure about this look at first glance but I think I really like it. Not too sure about open toe shoes for winter though but I’m conservative in that area-I bundle up when it’s cold…

    The tights and the shoes are great.

    She’s got the legs to pull off the elfish green tights look. Love the mini dress, love the coat, love everything from ankles above. It’s also hard not to notice that she has such beautiful hair. Not a big fan of peep toe flats though. At first glance I thought she was in a pair of slippers.

    her shoes look a lot like the typical spanish “alpargatas” very creative sense of style!

    Awesome! The teal, grey, and peach–and that beaming smile–look so fresh and springy with that misty background!

    Dying with curiosity about the feathers. What is that?

    I’m not gonna say I have a problem with the AESTHETICS of her shoe choice, but I hope her feet are warm enough for her. Beauty is NOT pain, and it’s important to take care of your feet (I wouldn’t have liked to see her in a 4-5 inch heel, either).

    February 20, 2009 at 2:52 pm

    She looks fabulous! I love the green footless tights. I wonder, though, are her feet cold? That is not a criticism of her outfit or its weather/season-appropriateness. She looks faboo and is a grown woman who can determine whether or not she needs socks.

    I’m certain this comment cements me in the “prematurely concerned with matters most often left to the more aged” category…

    Shoes are the foundation on which we stand, figureativly and literally. Her foundation is inadequate and it’s causing the whole building to crumble. The shoes look like house slippers and it makes the dress look like pantaloon pajamas and the coat like a ratty, old robe. What happened? Her color palette alone suggests she’s smarter and more sophisticated than that.

    i’ll take the LES tights look (below) over the UES tights look. one can buy expensive stuff and throw it all together, but it does not make a look. sorry sart!

    also, people, what’s with the tights and short top look? sure its the recession and there’s a scarcity of many things, but do we need peterpans walking around?

  67. fountaingirl

    What I love about this blog, is that I cannot peg any photo to a particular year or season. That is TRUE style and inspiration !!

    LOVE her coat, no so much the lower half – though the color of the tights are a great compliment to the tone of the coat. She reminds me of a ballerina who ran outside for a smoke.

    Not a fan of the tights/slippers look (especially not with a fur coat) BUT it’s all groovy, because you spotted her on Park Ave/UES, where it’s extremely rare to see anyone dressed with any originality. That’s what makes me love this picture.
