      Milk Man realness.

      • random_poster

        Seriously. And there is room for at least 4 bottles in that open bag of hers.

      • suburbanbohemian

        First thing I thought of, esp w/ shoes and belt. betty Draper has run amuck. in her republican cloth coat.

        • Adriana_Paula

          Nice Nixon Reference!

        • rh33

          BKs of a certain age get your reference. Well done!

      • H2olovngrl

        Good one!!! I was thinking she was on her way to work at In n Out Burger.

    • wisenhar

      Hmm, I like it, but, I’m getting a house coat vibe from the coat.

      • sagecreek

        Not just a house coat. A well-worn, several-years-old house coat.

      • Spreecord

        Fat Betty style.

      • filmcricket

        And an orderly’s uniform underneath.

    • WendyD

      The coat appears to be fashioned from my grandmother’s old robe. I like the shape, not the fabric.
      But I’m really frightened by the pieces underneath: those look like shirt and pants I wore for jazz choir in high school minus the music printed vest! Pleated pants and a buttoned-up button-down? NO!!!

    • Karen

      Milk Man in an old, nubby, shrunken robe. Her hair bothers.

    • Sofia Bentivoglio

      are those black accessories OK with this getup? (i’ve learned so much on this blog!)

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

        The accessories are fine, it’s every other article she’s wearing that is problematic. (Generally no, you wouldn’t do black accessories with pink & white clothes.)

        • Sofia Bentivoglio

          i thought the black accessories were too harsh – thanks. i’m not sure what’s wrong with pleated pants as a concept; she’s certainly thin enough to wear them. pleated pants on women remind me of a young lauren bacall/katherine hepburn “casual” look with a crisp blouse. maybe that’s too literally retro.

          • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ foodycatAlicia

            She’s a little white hat away from being a Norman Rockwell soda jerk wrapped in a dressing gown.

          • Adriana_Paula

            I agree with you re Bacall and Hepburn. I just think we were all scarred for life by Gap khakis in the nineties.

            • H2olovngrl

              I wore a red sweater and khakis to Target once in the Nineties, and was mistaken for an employee. Never again.

      • ShaoLinKitten

        Thank you for posting that– it’s the black accessories that make the whole thing seems like a nurse’s get up to me. I couldn’t figure out why until I read your post.

    • sagecreek

      Oh, my hair looks better than that today, and my hair is nothing to brag about today.

    • PastryGoddess

      I’m sorry but pleated pants are a no, Not ever, nuh uh, helz no. And then they have the nerve to be WHITE. Gurl no
      Also, my gramma called and she will cut a bitch for stealing her best housecoat
      …are those tap shoes?

      • ryenerman

        Seriously I just said out loud to my computer screen “Fuck you high-wasted pleated pants.” Never. Again.

    • TrixieConQueso

      It looks like she is selling the special of the day “Strawberry Milkshake” while working at the Good Humor store.

    • hughman

      Martha Stewart wore it better.

    • Adrianna Grężak

      I know the coat texture is on purpose, but all I want to do is run a lint shaver all over it

      • sojourneryouth

        ME TOO! Wearing it would make me totally neurotic. And that particular shade of pink is not really her friend, nor mine.

      • demidaemon

        AGREED. It’s seriously setting off my OCD.

      • tereliz

        OMG, this! I love the color, but the nubby texture is too much!

        I really really wanted a pink coat this winter, but I bought a house instead. I still want one, but let’s just say January’s pink coat is not making me green. ;)

    • @Biting Panda

      Oh god. No honey. NO.
      This is a horrible mix of hospital orderly meeting with Granma’s house coat.

      • lexilexi

        And those horrific shoes.

    • artful_life

      It looks like something from Cybil Shepherd’s wardrobe from Moonlighting…including the hair.

      • Imasewsure

        YOU ARE SO RIGHT…. she looks like she’s getting her Cybil on for sure.

      • boweryboy

        Nailed it.

      • http://weirdinedgewise.blogspot.com ONEWEIRDWORD

        Maddie from Moonlighting as Nurse

    • Glam Dixie

      I seriously had that coat in a slightly paler shade of pink and it was a few inches shorter back in the early 80′s. For that reason alone I hate it.

      • mjude

        omg so did i !

        • Glam Dixie

          I’m sorry to bring up such painful memories.

          • mjude

            ha! but i did love that coat for the moment

            • Glam Dixie

              I loved mine too, I had completely forgotten it’s existence until I saw JJ and I had a flashback.

            • demidaemon

              Is this like fashion PTSD?

    • Nicholas

      It’s so awful it’s almost amazing, you know what I mean?

      • boweryboy

        I just watched Stayin’ Alive for the first time in decades, and that was my takeaway from the movie. So, yeah I totally know what you mean.

    • rosie5215

      Nurse Betty.

    • stellamaris73

      Everything looks like jammies.

    • gabbilevy

      No, no no, January. The Fat Betty phase is the one part of Mad Men you should NOT bring into real life.

    • Danielle

      She looks like an orderly in a mental hospital, possibly morphing into a patient with that coat.

      • Aroo

        I’ve got serious One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest vibes from this. It’s the orderly uniform with Nurse Ratched’s demeanour.

        • Danielle

          It’s something Daisy Randone would wear.

          • decormaven

            “Don’t they know…it’s the end of the world…”

    • Suzanne Moore

      Pink bath robe realness was my first reaction. The white cuffs poking out seem to be messing with the line of the coat, too.

    • nannypoo

      Oh for god’s sake. She looks ridiculous.

    • ferngilly

      are we sure this isn’t in any way associated with Mad Men? Her nails look Betty-fied to me

    • boweryboy

      Incredibly unflattering pants. Poor shoe choice. And a hideous jacket that looks like a repurposed old pilled fleece blanket from the ’60s. The sunglasses are cool, so there’s that.

    • MilaXX

      Nice outfit, terrible hair.

    • Violentcello

      She looks distinctly uncomfortable. Either that coat is itchy or she realizes how unflattering it is. Also, I think I hate her shoes. Let’s burn them, shall we?

    • Gatto Nero

      Hmm. The white pants and shirt with the black belt and shoes say “old school pizza maker.”
      Not loving the coat either.
      But the shades are nice.

    • lillyvonschtupp

      That’s her Betty coat in pink.

    • The Versatile Chef

      I want to grab my Sharper Image Fabric Shaver and go to town on that coat.

    • Nicholas Paganelli

      I UNABASHEDLY LOVE THIS.

    • Shawn EH

      Movie star!

      The Good Humor lady is here! The Good Humor Lady is here!!!

    • MissusBee

      It’s not problem-free. But I’m finding the colors a palate-cleanser as rarely seen. And I love masculine tailoring/androgyny on women who could go with more pretty looks. If the shirt was less crinkly and the coat yellow (with bigger nubs!), I could love it. Sure, white+navy+camel or similar would be a more traditional palette in the Grace Kelly mould, but why be safe?

    • Trickytrisha

      Not so sure the pink coat makes up for the 50′s Milk Man costume. (Google it… I dare you!)

    • crash1212

      I’m fairly certain that each one of these pieces costs more than I make in months and months, however, they all look like they came out of a not-so-great thrift store to my eye. Ill fitting. And….are those pink pills on purpose…is that a style?

    • Judy_J

      I WANT THAT COAT! Pink is my color!

    • Neil

      my grandmother has hand towels made from that coat.

    • E. D.

      Pleated pants are friends to no one.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      I find her so uninteresting. And this outfit is putting me to sleep. Maybe it’s the milk man references below. Tryptophan! I don’t even think she’s a good actress. Just Dullsville. Like this outfit.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      I love this! I think the black accessories keep the look out of “pajamas and bathrobe” territory.

    • demidaemon

      She needs one of those pillers, I think. Also, Petpto Bismol and white aren’t the greatest tastes together.

    • LambeeBaby

      GOOD HUMOR man, I’ll take a toasted almond please.

    • AnnaleighBelle

      It all looks pink to me. Referred rosiness?

    • http://www.dogsdotcom.blogspot.com/ Plink

      Give me that coat, bitch! It’s mine.

    • KT

      I really thought this was a photo from the set of Mad Men at first glance. Of course the coat has the most to do with that, but even the hair and the primness of it all is very Betty — though not quite, of course — but also not the kind of thing January usually wears. Basically, this is weird Betty/January mash-up and it’s not quite working.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      For some reason this whole outfit screams NURSE’S UNIFORM! to me.

    • quiltrx

      She looks like she is going in somewhere to scoop ice cream. Her little hat is there waiting for her. She wears the coat because strawberry is her favorite.

    • lobsterlen

      Take the pink coat off and January could show dairy cows at the state fair.

    • LaSylphide

      Before I read all the Good Humor Man/dairy/orderly in a mental hospital comments, I kind of liked this. Thanks a lot :) In any case, I’d strongly suggest she wash her hair more often than once every six months.

    • http://angrynerdgirl.net/ Jessi03

      It’s like the bathrobe version of Betty’s blue coat of sadness.

    • cocohall

      What makes me laugh is that she seems IRRITATED that her picture is being taken when she is wearing an outfit that could not stand out more unless she had set herself on fire as she walked down the street. If you are going to go out looking like a pink cotton candy cloud on a white paper cone, at least have the spirit to own it and SASHAY and SMILE. Where is Parker Posey when you need her?

    • ovarB

      For a second I thought this was Martha Stewart. The boxy, bulky coat paired with the white button down and sensible pants. The shoulder grazing blonde hair that is slightly mussed but neatly parted. The look of “not amused because I’m better than thou.” Seriously…Martha Stewart reincarnated!!

    • paintedfish

      looks like my old, pilly bathrobe.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      Nice bathrobe and jammies.

    • Kimbolina

      What is the opposite of coat porn?

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        Haah!

    • Tracy_Flick

      I love the idea of a star on the street not wearing sky-high stillettos and a sundress in February. But I really just cannot with the Maytag repairman in his wife’s bathrobe.

    • Ann VerWiebe

      Those pants just scream, “Spill mustard on me!”

    • http://victoriapavlova.com Victoria Pavlova

      Surprisingly, I like it. The coat’s texture, shape and color are right on trend. And it’s different. If it were Blanchett, everybody would be LOVING it.

    • GillianHolroyd

      She might have pulled this off if she’d skipped the limp, dingy shirt and washed her hair.

    • Martin Leon

      THAT LOOKS SO COMFY!
