On The Street……Madison Ave., Manhattan

I love the clean, understated grey underneath that puts the focus on the shoes and trench,
What is great is that even though the base items (grey) are neutral they still stand on their own – the pants have a great cut and the turtleneck is so classic.

    it’s all about the proportions with her, short pant, long trench, little flat shoes, supersized tote, big sunglasses, skinny girl. Yin and Yang.

    I vote for everything but the bag.

    Seems to me part of style is picking and choosing what goes. Big bags don’t go with everything.

    Interesting pants length. Are we usually seeing those with boots instead of flats?

    Agree with the others – I’m not a big fan of the bag. But that doesn’t stop her from looking great! I find grey very hard to wear, but it looks lovely with the tan.

    I love how the bag is the focal point. It looks so impractical, being large and empty, that it almost becomes an art-work-come-accessory.

    It seems more creative, like it wasn’t chosen for the mere purpose of matching one’s shoes or impressing girls with It Bags.

    this is pretty much what you will find me wearing on any given day. i agree with everyone about the bag, though. i carry a large cream henry beguelin satchel when i need to carry a lot of stuff because his bags are feather-light AND they look great, or a vintage di camerino if i can get by with schlepping less, but usually i don’t carry any bag at all — a cell phone (which, like you, sart, i use instead of wearing a watch) and cash in one pocket of the trench and my keys in the other. my ankles are starting to get a bit cold as the season progresses, so i will probably have to go to longer pants and a heavier coat fairly soon, and the ballet flats will be traded in for some sort of flat boot, but this look and variations on it are my basic everyday uniform for running around town.

    The bag just looks impractical and cumbersome to carry. And I still don’t like most of these oversized shades.

    I agree 100 % with Rafe Totengco, it’s all about proportions , and I think she chose them perfectly.
    I adore her look , big bag included.

    She looks fantastic. I love the flats in the neutral colour.

    I think my issue w/the bag is the color. If it were more complimentary to the rest of the outfit (such as a dark brown), it would work. I do like the oversize sunnies, though.

    I like the bag, because everyone doesn’t like it.

    The bigger the better.

    Oh no, I love this bag. This is what makes the whole look work !

    I love all of that, but the bag seems to dwarf the rest. I wonder what it would have looked like in taupe suede?

    Isn’t this the ubiquitous Chanel garbage bag everyone is hauling around? Hmm. Not sure about that, but the rest of her looks quite chic.
