WIW 12/2 Baja hoodie

Proenza Schouler came out last year with a very expensive designer Baja hoodie.

and here

When I was in Mexico in January I picked up an authentic one. Worn with my MMM for H&M moto, Acne skinny khakis, Isabel Marant wedge sneakers and my Fallon choker.

    Windswept Anna in our crazy weather!

    I like the story behind your Baja hoodie and today is a great day to wear it. You already know how much I love the oversized MMM moto, and the high tops are a nice uber trendy casual touch. Creative outfit :)

    This combination would look great with jeans too.

    Looks cozy! Don't blow away!

    What a score! Geat colour on you. You could holiday in Mexico several times over for the regular price of the designer hoodie...

    This looks great and I love that the baja hoodie is 'authenitic'.

    Ah, love the authenticity. There's a Frank Zappa song where he asks, "is that a real poncho...i mean is that a mexican poncho, or is that a sears poncho?" I always think of that when Fashion appropriates certain cultural styles.

    Lovely hoodie!

    Thanks everyone; now that I look at it, this outfit is a dud. Makes me look too wide in the middle. Oh well it was an interesting experiment.

    Anna I don't think this is a dud, but I would follow Angie's idea of wearing darker colored bottoms like jeans. I do like the way the MMM jacket (so jealous), the Mexican top and the sneakers play together. It's very So Cal in the winter, Fast Times At Ridgemont HIgh in a good way. And your face and hair are stellar in this photo.

    I have an authentic baja hoodie from back when I was in college (I went to school in Las Cruces, NM which is less than an hour from the Mexican border). It's a sentimental piece - I rarely wear it anymore but I just can't get rid of it. I never thought of layering anything over it but your outfit gives me some ideas.

    Woo, Las Cruces represent!! ;-)

    I used to love that kind of top. I'm sure they have another name but I can't for the life of me remember what it is. I had a cream colored one with pink stripes on the pocket that I used to like to wear as a swimsuit cover up -- somehow I had this idea that it was a sexy look. -_-?

    I remember those tops! They were very big on campus. The ones the sellers used to sell though in the "ethnic" pop-up travelling bazaars were from Peru, but same idea and patterns.

    I like the idea of this outfit, but I think the proportions are off, or something else just isn't meshing. Great moto, btw.

    Well, if you were going for figure-flattery, I'd agree with you that it's not the most successful outfit I've seen on you; however, if your goal was to cultivate a tough urban/ethnic vibe for cold weather, then I'd say you did a great job.

    I don't know why, but I associate those hoodies with grunge, kind of like plaid shirts. I liked that trend :)

    Hello to all of you New Mexico folks! I went to college in Santa Fe!
