A belted puffy down coat is a good idea, but the first thing that came to my mind from this photo was – Has the perception of crime in DeBlasio’s NYC risen to the point where women have to attach their handbags to a belt?
No, it hasn’t. Can we please not take political jabs on this site? It’s about fashion and I’m guessing she attached the bag to the belt so that her hands could be free. Women always have one had occupied with holding a bag, unless it’s a crossover. Give your petty political observations a rest. Please.
I love her natural-looking hair, subtle makeup, and all black fashion with a touch of tortoise shell on her glasses. She could have been photographed a decade earlier or later, and I bet she’d look equally timeless and elegant.
