    Love how it looks like she didn’t do anything to her hair and didn’t put any thought to what she is wearing but still ended up looking good.

    That hair practically makes the outfit! Plus, I love all her minimal choices with the masculine boots.

    Beautiful style. I am finding these “unsexy” – covered, intelligent styles you have been capturing lately so appealing. One doesn’t focus on the clothes but the interesting person wearing them. You wonder about what wonderful book is hidden in the beautiful bag.

    The coat and the bag are perfect but the boots…

    great lighting!

    and I love girls in masculine boots… always have, always will!

    This style seems to be channeling a 1990′s Meg Ryan look.

    beautiful style! I’d look not so cute if I wore those boots though…

    The hair and the coat. What a great look! She avoids looking frumpy.

    there’s always something beautiful in the unexpected. before finally scrolling down the picture to her feet, i didn’t expect that she’d be sporting that kind of footwear.

    i think she still really looked good, probably styling quirky without much thought. the colors look very beautiful on her too.

    Beautiful,natural woman. Reminds me of a young Jaqueline Bisset.

    She is so stylist without even trying. I like when you capture regular people instead of models or people who work in the fashion industries who are already stylist because they work in that kind of environment.

    I love the way she paired chunky boots and oversize bag

    The proportions are clownish, but the materials are nice, so I guess she gets away with it?

    I love how she dressed down her look with those boots. She looks fantastic!

    oversized everything — amazing !

    As I scrolled down, I stopped at the bottom of her coat and paused. She looked like anyone I would meet at Safeway here. Then I realized that what really made the look was the crisp black skirt. Funny, not what I would have done, but it works.

    Interesting combination! The bag looks amazing.

    Lovely photo, but I’m not fond of her choice of outfit – although I’m sure you can’t beat it for comfort……

    Have just bought my first pair of Kickers (that’s what she’s wearing!) in navy blue and this pic has given me another insight as to how to wear them! I love me some masculine boots!! Awesome

    looking at the proportions……I feel tired…..exhausted

    I’ll love those boots even more in 10 years when they have some wear on them. I’m yearning for a bit of a patina…

  43. Paige

    January 18, 2012 at 3:44 pm

    That’s the only way to do curly bangs. You go, girl! Love from one curlyhead to another.
    Also, why isn’t anyone discussing the gorgeous pleating on that skirt! They’re what makes the outfit work so well, in my opinion.

  44. Lydia

    January 18, 2012 at 4:50 pm

    I love that everything about her look is oversized, even her shoes and hair.

    I’m in love with the way these boots were paired with this dress. I got them as a Christmas present from my boyfriend (who i’m told you recently photographed in Italy ha) and they have been incorporated into almost every outfit. Will be trying this for sure though..

    That hair…that hair! The whole look is quirky and odd…yet in a strangely sophisticated way!

    reminds me of the girl in flashdance which makes me ancient.

    Nice outfit! Like the bag and skirt. :)

    I must admit this look confuses me a bit.

    It’s ’80s, but then no, its’ fresh but then reminds me of the slouchy ’80s.

    The hair I love, the bag not really, the oversied coat yes, the shoes not in this context, so am a bit buffled really.

    A big kiss from Greece!

    I love these pieces individually, but she’s drowning in this as an ensemble. Too heavy.

  62. AnthonyC

    January 19, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    I admire her courage but it is too much. too bulky and makes he look like a toddler. The boots are a hard sell on men as much as I love Red Wings – that butterscotch color when new is cheesy looking.

  63. Emma

    January 19, 2012 at 6:58 pm

    Her hair makes me proud of having curls!

  64. Sara

    I know her! She’s always so stylish, everytime I met her…and her hair…so envy…

    I used to wear these construction boots in 8th and 9th grade…with levis..501′s with a pullover hoodie…never with a skirt but it seems to work doesn’t it? Was 1974/75

    LOVE the HUGE pleats!!!! Wonderful look. She has great hair for sure.

    Those shoes make an awesome statement! Love the bag and color scheme.

    Like the X Style with the Red Wing Boots masculine – feminine this is a not so often seen look.

    All these comments are so astute, and yet each commenter reflects such a completely different take on this woman’s look … so many worlds are colliding in this woman’s ensemble!
    I echo some of the comments that her hair makes (saves?) the look. Her hair keeps the outfit-get-up feminine , sexy, and buoyant. It’s a nice counterweight to her clothes, which seem to be heavy and hanging down, down, down.

    While each piece is lovely on it’s own, thrown together this way screams “homeless lady chic” to me.
    The saving grace here (at least for me), is the hair.

    The skirt! I love the long pleated skirt. It is a great combination with the brown coat, the bag and the workers’ boots
