Menswear




Coat (Macy's) Blouse (Gap); Shirt & Belt (Target); Pants (Express); Hat (Francesca's)
Shoes (Nine West); Gloves (stolen from Mom)

There is something so fabulous about menswear for women - it's unexpected, edgy, and strong (not to mention warm...Minnesota is colder than the North Pole this week). Feminine details like blue suede gloves and high heels balance out the "dude looks like a lady" vibe.  And I think I've earned this look...  I kill spiders (typically shrieking upon the moment of magazine/spider impact) and I take out my own trash (usually when I forget to ask my boyfriend)...  So yeah, I can do it all!  Except change a tire :)

I love this look! The picture of you tipping your hat is GORGEOUS!! I love the length of the coat--the proportions are perfect for those pants and the details (blue gloves and that hat, oh, that hat!!) are very striking! Beautiful look! Stay warm!!!
