The Debate - Form Over Function

I stopped this woman on Richmond Street to compliment her on her unique coat (from Russ Meyer) and she said that unfortunately, as a coat, it's not very warm.  As is the case with so many items of clothing (particularly shoes) designed for women, it looks fabulous, but not as functional as we would like.   This seems to be more of a dilemma as we get further into winter, when it becomes easier to just put on the puffy coat and the sorels and say to hell with self-expression.  To those of you who manage to stay warm and still express some personal style, I salute you, and will be looking for you in the weeks to come.
