    I totally agree!

    Some people thinks that if you’re dress in all black, you will obviously look monotonous or sad or whatever.
    It just wrong, you just have to create interesting combinaisons.

    See you :)

      Absolutely. I am getting a little tired of women squeeeezing themselves into tightassed leather coats that fit like a shirt. Its nice to see this woman wearing an oversized guys jacket. Much cooler.

    cool style!! she is different!!!

    I’m sorry but this look is hideous, especially from below the knees. It’s weird how some people can throw some disparate pieces together and be able to carry it off with panache and style eg the woman in a tutu from Milan a few days ago, and can’t. Still, a fascinating photo and interesting to observe.

    From that view, I don’t like this outfit, it is too much!

      I like the androgyny of this look. When I first saw the jacket and pants, I thought it was a man, but the shoes soon set me straight
      I also love the interesting textures of the jacket, especially the lower part.

      Too, too much ! laughable. What has it to do with black, its the last thing you focus on. Panto dame .

        I think thats the point. You don’t want to look like a funeral director when you wear all black.

    I don’t dig the drippy fringe and sloppy sweats.

    For me feels that it’s too many layers- not really my style, but shoes and jacket are awesome!!!

    interesting outfit.

    If texture is the key then she certainly has it nailed! There’s just about every type in that outfit.

    I saw her on the train platform the other day! Never seen early 80s NYC so updated.

    This seems so masculine, and then you scroll down and see the shoes. Love it.

    Holy smokes, I honestly don’t know if I love or hate this. I know that I love everything but I’m undecided re: the strand-y things hanging off her butt.

    I enjoyed scrolling down to this one!

    Not so sure about this but each to their own! I guess that sweater is warm which is something x

    Looks like she’s just leaving a tribal fusion class/performance rehearsal: hip scarf, sweats for warm-down wear, fancy shoes because the sneakers were left out of the dance bag… check, check, check. I’ve had looks like this happen when I needed to re-assemble myself to get home after dancing, found I’d forgotten something, and/or just didn’t feel like dis-assembling allllllll the accoutrements I’d swathed myself in. (Never looked this cool though, I suspect.)

      Thanks to you, the term, tribal fusion popped immediately into my mind… I suspect you suspect wrongly, btw.

      Except that those aren’t sweats. The fabric is wrong.

    • Martine

      November 17, 2012 at 7:21 am

      Let me see; You think she just left a dance class simply because she is wearing a gathered at the ankle pair of pants which might be sweats? I don’t see the logic. What does that sweater have to do with dance class? You believe she meant to wear sneakers, but forgot them, and somehow got shoes that match her outfit accidently from somewhere else. She doesn’t even have a bag with her.

      Seriously ?

        If you mean “Do I think that she literally just walked out of a dance class?”, no; I know she probably didn’t. Good grief. But if you mean “Have I really walked out of dance classes wearing outfits that were so very similar, item-by-item, to this one that the photo struck a chord with me and made me smile?”, then yes indeed.

    Hey, can you post more pictures of her, like the jacket, conflict fan from way back. (The patch is the symbol for punk band conflict)

    Great jacket.

    ‘CONFLICT’ on a leather jacket? Might as well order a juicy steak in a vegan eatery
