    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!

  • http://tvblogster.blogspot.com Boop

    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!
