I chortled when I saw this DM link

Disclaimer: Yes I do realise that what she wears is not as important as her policies but even so.....

this jacket it weird too Maybe she has a sideline as an StormTrooper extra.

oh, I like having a Home Secretary that wears nice colourful coats.

MardyQuickFollowThatStar Fri 10-Dec-10 13:14:49

but the shoes are lovely

MardyQuickFollowThatStar Fri 10-Dec-10 13:15:35

That's true seth, her clothes definitely have personality.

MardyQuickFollowThatStar Fri 10-Dec-10 13:17:08

and she has quite good legs too

MardyQuickFollowThatStar Fri 10-Dec-10 13:18:17

anyway I have to log off now, probably just as well as I seem to be talking to myself....

sethstarkaddersmum Fri 10-Dec-10 13:20:02

yes, aren't the boots great?

Thing is, because she is in the public eye and the media loves picking up on well-known women's fashion mistakes so they can laugh and point (specially the DM) she doesn't have much margin for error - if you or I bought an item of clothing and wore it once and decided it was a mistake the only people who would know would be the people that happened to see it the one time we wore it. Whereas for her it will be immortalised forever. So I quite like the fact that she still makes risky fashion choices despite all this.

And I love her hair - it always looks so great and confident when an elegant woman (as she usually is) dares to keep grey hair IMO.

She's had that coat for years (is our MP hmm).

sethstarkaddersmum Fri 10-Dec-10 13:21:05

LOL Mardy, have just noticed it's just you and me who are excessively interested in the Home Secretary and her clothes.

sethstarkaddersmum Fri 10-Dec-10 13:21:22

You, me and the Daily Mail I mean.

sethstarkaddersmum Fri 10-Dec-10 13:23:50

does it look better or worse in RL Mollie?

MollieO Fri 10-Dec-10 13:25:31

About the same. At least she is easily recognisable from a distance!

MardyQuickFollowThatStar Fri 10-Dec-10 17:08:40

Agree - the boots are great.

purplepeony Fri 10-Dec-10 17:19:04

it looks bloody awful and she needs to take advice from someone with dress sense and style.

TheCrackFox Fri 10-Dec-10 17:30:38

The coat isn't the best. FWIW it looks a size too big.

She normally has lovely shoes so she must know a bit about fashion.

HonestyBox Fri 10-Dec-10 18:06:53

Oh my eyes.

She's got a whole wardrobe full!
