The other, The Bag Lady, received a more mixed bag of responses. Some fashion insider types gushed about what a trailblazer she was & others praised her 'courage' for going out in the street looking like that. But the field really belonged to the Cynics, who flatly said that no one would want to take style advice from someone who looked like a bag lady.
Perhaps they're right.
But after carefully studying both ladies, I think I lean more towards the Bag Lady. Even though she looks a bit stern, it would certainly be fun to wear all that. You'd have to be so disciplined to look like The Snow Matron. And the creme would be a nightmare to keep clean.
And who can forget Brassai's glittering 'Bijou', the Bag Lady's Bag Lady!
