btw. i can't believe how provacative i find those first robert cavalli boots.
Thank you for putting the essence of this look into words so eloquently!

I have to admit, I also love this look - and I am glad to see that this incarnation is not just a rehashing of what was done in the 80's.

There is a very slim possibility that I may embrace this look again given that nifty outfit Condie Rice wore to Russia (?) last year (black paramilitary duster with pencil skirt and knee boots - even at over 50 she looked classy, sexy and powerful. Pulled this look off very, very nicely, she did).

I love this Marni coat...it's a bit militant, but very classic as well.



And I'm dying for this Prada coat....

I like it. I've also loved sharp clothing with definitive lines. But of course only tall and skinny people can pull it off in my honest opinion.

I think it is really lovely...it's really very classic though, not so much trendy, imo. though I it can be tailored to fit right into this year's trends, if done more along the lines of a period look this year - either edwardian or 1940's... with that said, I'm really feeling inspired by the structuring of 1940's women's military uniforms at the moment, after seeing a collection at a museum. loving the military colour scheme as well - grey and navy...

^ I'd love to see some examples of 40's women uniforms, I tried google but nothing appropiate came up.

Zara has great military jackets, I tried a dark grey coat on and it felt like it was the one, perfect sharp distinct collar, €180 which is a little above my budget Then I found a shorter black jacket of really nice fabric, I shouldn't have tried it on as it's also a little too pricey. But, at least I'm really motivated to get a job now

^I think I know which one you're talking about. I liked it a lot too and even tried it on, but it didn't look so good on me. Oh well.
