Ooh, everything is just Right in this one. The jacket first of all so classy and the silky inner of it coming out in the rolled sleeves, lovely. The red hair, always beautiful, turban with flowers. Just everything.
Although I do think she looks stunning. Haven't we seen one too many beige coats with a colourful turban. Still I'd dress like her if I was a girl. For me it's always attractive when a girl puts on a white shirt with a defining collar.
Hard to know what we're looking at here. Is that a bathrobe, an alb, a Vestal Virgin's palla, or? Is she fashionable, or a nun, or Amish? Details like the cigarette and the diamonds around her left ankle as well as her presence on this blog would seem to suggest the former. Of course everyone will compliment the photograph with all the white.
Really, I thought she was an actress leaving stage to have a cigarette break–it looks like a maid's dress underneath, and she put on The Lady's dressing gown to step outside. I would be very confused seeing this look on the street.
Shades of Alice Kramden and Lucille Ball, but in a good way. My one criticism is that the head wrap takes the look too literally into bathrobe territory, despite all the wonderful things going on underneath. Still, she's done something special here.
Although I appreciate the originality, this look reminds me too much of something that should be worn at home after bath, rather than outside in London. I think the white collar + turban make her look a bit like a turn of the century maid!
What strikes me is the long simple silhouette, like a candle. I have seen this a bit recently & it is very unlike most recent threads. Perhaps silhouettes will become more like that in the near future.
Soigne. This flirts with a 1950s housewife or 1930s maid, but these references enrich the look rather than detract from it. I agree with the writer who says that the look "confuses" her eye: but I love such confusion, which I call "enlivens."
Its so perfect. Coat is perfect, the wrap is cute, and the outfit underneath is great. You can tell she is really a cool person inside too, somehow. This is one of my very favorite outfits. I just love this. And the fact that some people are snotty about the hair wrap proves that she is innovative. If everyone likes an outfit fine, that means it isn't really cutting edge. When some people don't get it, that means its outside their comfort zone, and that is a sort of compliment too.
Love the way the scarf references the 1940′s – and the rolled up sleeves has a feel of the bomb-factory worker about it. The proportions are very well-balanced and the carrying-case is a nice touch. Great outfit.
