    Ok, so… i love the texture on the hat and coat;
    now i must face the drudgery of stressing common knowledge: it’s just ugly to wear fur.

    love the pink version…
    altho i don’t think her look really showcases them.
    finally found a replacement pair of floral Dr. Marten’s on ebay –for a steal– $50!
    they bring back so many fond memories of alterna yesteryear.

    Is she a celeb or why is she hiding under the hat ,fur,scarf and huge sunglasses?

    all the details are so beautiful…. her sunglasses! (and i’m not a sunglasses person at all) her PURSE! and her docs. i was going to suggest that they’re high-end doc marten imitations, but they have the tell-tale yellow stitching. i wonder where she got them in that lovely pale mauve color.

    She totally had me up until the shoes. I can’t buy it as a intentional choice, but rather as a “I have no other practical shoes to wear but these” decision, hehe. I think it is because I often choose footwear that way myself.

    I love this! Her look is simultaneously elegant and casual, and the Doc Martens gives what would have been a granny outfit (not that granny is bad) its edge. Sophisticated coat + hip shoes = pure style.

    Great one. I like every detail, especially the colour of the shades, the surprising shoes and the sophisticated bag.

    I really appreciate people like Kristen and their sunny outlook on life.

    This woman is a little mysterious…maybe…but she makes me think of that great title for one of Oscar Wilde’s short stories: The Sphinx Without a Secret.

    I love her coat. I think it suits her…but the Dr. Martens and leggings seem strange and a little sad.

    The person looking over my shoulder just said she looks ageless! I admire his sunny outlook as well.

    This fur collar looks to me like it is on a vintage coat. I own a bunch of vintage fur coats. I figure that even if those little critters lived out their little critter lives to hoary old age, they would still be dead. so I wear my mom’s 1957 fur with no guilt.

    I love the fact that you’ve allowed the comments box to go popup instead of us having to go away from the pics while we comment..thanks, Sart!
    I love her outfit, not least because it seems so cosy, it must be cold. And I love the comibnation of hat, odd shoes and frame bag.

    Wearing shades in the winter is ill-advised–contributes to low levels of Vitamin D and Seasonal Affective Disorder.

    Es una mezcla atrevida de estilos que queda muy bien.

    She’s a little bit Ali Macgraw, another little bit Mia Farrow in the Great Gatsby and another little bit fabulous! I love the proportions – large (luxurious) and simple especially those sunnies and the coat!

    She is great, but why do so many people put their feet in such a funny way?

    I was thinking she looks like Annie Hall with a punk twist.

    sorry…but this seems like a mismash to me. I agree with what angela said. Seems like she looked around and decided those were the warmest most practical walking shoe she had. (And honestly, I don’t think doc’s have been “out” for long enough for everyone to grow so nostaligic!) Imagine this outfit with a truly forward modern shoe..

    The shoes are the clincher for me. It tells me she doesn’t take herself too seriously. Plus, Docs? Will never go out of style. I don’t care what anyone says.

    I forgot to mention my love for Doc Martens before. When i was a teen i used to have a Doc Martens poster that said “Majority rules only those who let them.” :P I don’t think it suits her look though. nor her.

    Aah, I love her air of mystery and understated elegance paired with pink Doc Martens! Genius!

    I have some purple suede Docs from the late 80s-early 90s. Maybe I’ll bust ‘em out.

    She’s beautiful. Those Docs made me smile the moment I saw them.

    I love it. I cannot tell her age at all. And I wish I could see what she has on under the coat, what her style is, etc. I hope editor sees the docs!

    The shoes are horrible! Just because it was a picture taken the sartorialist doesn’t make the fashion good. The rest of the outfit is fine, but nothing like a lot of the gems on this blog.

    Is that Angelina Jolie hiding inside the coat?

    I love the all black layering with a hint of surprise, from a colored-pink docs! How cool could she get.. Say, if I’m living in a temperate country, I’d dress up like her..

    “Wearing shades in the winter is ill-advised–contributes to low levels of Vitamin D and Seasonal Affective Disorder.”

    uh, did you just make that up? vitamin d is produced by your SKIN when it is exposed to sunlight. the eyes have nothing to do with it. please, get your facts straight before posting things like this!

    Just because someone pumps (plumps) up her lips and puts on sunglasses doesn´t mean she is Angelina.

    she’s phenomenal. stunning. breathtaking. and tall.

    and for those reasons, she can wear god-knows-what and look swell. and she does. both.

    “now i must face the drudgery of stressing common knowledge:” No one likes hypocritical hippies. Leather is no different than fur, and I hear no complaining about the Docs – which happen to be a fantastic counterpoint to the rest of the outfit.

    Pre-apocalyptic robotic military officer of the future. A perfect look for 2008.


    December 29, 2007 at 8:54 pm

    I love it! this is real life on her way to get a coffee at the corner deli.
    she looks so “rich-girl-on-her-day-off”

    Hate the boots !

    They do nothing but clash violently with the rest of her outfit
