This fab and funky FOF from Austin, TX, was spotted shopping with her husband (who was wearing matching glasses) on Fifth Avenue in New York City. Her redcessories made her hard to miss! Our take: She looks like someone we'd want to be friends with. But do you think her style is red hot, or--not?
"Her red, statement necklace and great eyeglasses against her grey dress really work! I love those patent walking shoes. I understand the functionality of the puffy vest but think a chic trench coat instead, would have made this look a home run."

Sherrie Mathieson: "
There seems to be no shortage of women who mistake weirdness for stylishness and individuality. She’s wannabe artsy, but there is no art here. One thing she is though, is comfortable--from her loose dress, wash-and-wear hairstyle, and comfortable, masculine shoes. The only piece I actually like (with a different outfit) is her down vest."

"Maybe I’ve had a little too much champagne for New Years, but I do not mind this look at all. I’m not saying I would wear this, but it works! The drapey dress with the down vest is so Isabel Marant
. The necklace irks me a bit, but she makes it work with her eyeglass frames. The shoes are weird but they sure look comfy if she’s touring the town."

Susan Grant: "
This woman looks very cute with her artsy touches. I love the way her red glasses, lips and necklace brighten her up. The only thing that bothers me is the pockets on her skirt--they are one element too many and don't work with the length of her vest. Otherwise, her appearance is very pleasant."
