    Is that a little magnifying glass around her neck? How cool is that. An alternative to bi-focals.

    This must be from a few months ago. It is much too cold for open-toed shoes now.
    So glad for these posts. Bon voyage!

    never in a million years did I ever think possible to appreciate an outfit based on the drop-rise trouser. She pulls it off so fabulously!! Thanks for the pic!

      Scott calls the shot ‘Half plaid.’ I thought. regarding the pants, ‘half mast,’ but she looks cute and chic.

    I love the way sexiness of the shoes contrasts the grunginess of the outfit. I’m still on the fence about the hat though.

    so good!

    So the new look in Paris is to dress as though your trunk consumes around 75% of body length?
    I think I’ll pass.

    I really like the colors and the patterns – can’t get used to these pants, though.

    I’m afraid that by the time I begin to like them, they’ll be out of fashion. On this woman – who is very attractive, has lots of confidence and reminds me of Lauren Hutton – they don’t look that bad, but they still make her legs look short.

    I love the sandals – in my opinion they are a surprisingly good match with the heavier, cold-weather clothes.

    great look – love those pants and the fact that it’s mainly a winter feel to the ensemble until you get to the feet! she looks happy, too, which always is the best for an outfit.

    I know it’s supposed to be perfect for Interim ’09, the multiple prints, the great shoes, cropped pants but the scarf is throwing me off. Not because of the animal prints but because of the hair color.

    Her sandals are beautiful, although the outfit is very risky. I’m not quite sure how I feel about the ensemble.

    I really disliked the rise of the drop-rise trouser, but now I see a pair that I would actually rock. Very nice. As usual, thank you for the inspiration.

    Still not feeling that ‘large dump in the pants’ look. It’s just not improving with repeat viewings.

    I just can’t wrap my brain around strappy sandals for a cold weather look. Otherwise she has her own sure style, and she looks very smart.

    She totally rocks! this is the way to wear plaid – get rid of all those tired looking shirts. the sandals work well with the pants – but in january? you’ve got to respect her commitment to style…

    too much, I don’t know where to look first! But this is the polar opposite to my style, so it makes no sense to me. The only thing saving her in my eyes is the smile. She’s happy, she thinks she looks good, and that’s all that matters.

    Really awesome style, I like how she made two different prints work together.

    I’m not loving the drop in the pants either, but the cut goes nicely with the shoes. If there’s one thing I definitely don’t like here it’s the scarf- there’s just something about it that bugs me- probably the bold print in contrast to the plaid.

    The pants are definitely Zara, I have them. You HAVE to wear them with heels especially if you have short legs…but it’s great for casual chic combinations in shades of grey

    I’m loving the whole look… It seems that she really though about the outfit but, at the same time looks so effortless, comfortable and stylish…

    I think that the item which gives the total look are the squared pants!!!

    The drop crotch/harem pant was big in parts of Scandinavia for the past few years; I would imagine else where in Europe. I was hoping they wouldn’t catch on in the States, but it seems like they’re starting to show up…

    Is the Vuittn scarf overused now? It has become like the IT bags – just bought as the status symbol? Its bad as now whenever I see a leopard print scarf in brown or grey, I always look for the steven sprouse on the end. I wouldnt say no to the grey one though!

    This woman’s style remains.
