OK! She clearly went for weight and texture, and combine not-so-great items to result in a smashing outfit. The almost brocade jacket next to the plain cotton slacks- no belt as to maintain a straight line from torso to legs. So we have the heavy texture, the plain dress chino, and the grubby wool turtleneck. It works as there is only one print, and different weights. I am not so sure about the black hose/stockings, but then I am unable to suggest anything better. Love the shoes! Jorge from W Palm Beach
OK, I like the total package, and especially the way it echoes (or is echoed by) the background.
What I want to question is the repeating comment about how it looks “so 80′s”. Is there anything that doesn’t look “so 80′s”? There are almost no shots that don’t have some variation of that comment!
I think I missed the 80′s since I was busy with a newborn, finishing my masters and looking for a place to live, so I wore whatever was in my closet and clean. So if someone can address this issue and answer my questions I’d be most appreciative.
I absolutely love her style, especially her shoes whici are are great. Of course her slim figure makes it possible. A shorter or bigger person would not be able to pull it off so easily. But isn’t this the case at all times ?
Different pants, different pants….big, flowing pants might work…or, hey: how about PANTALOONS? They’ll be coming back in, you mark my words….so will aprons, both on the runway and off. Whacked-out shoes….
I love it. i mean the quarter-sleeve sweater is very coco chanel or gwen stefani’s lamb. But her hair complete it… it gives her a very complementary,warm look.-Sosie from http://www.sosiesblog.blogspot.com
I like the simplicity of the outfit. The turtleneck looks so comfortable. The blazer makes the outfit interesting. The bag and shoes add to the overall quality without distracting from the main focus. I love this style of bag that you can wear across your body- very practical for a working woman or a student.
