Rosie, Berkeley

This is Rosie Moon Schlussel, and her daughter, in a playground by the Berkeley Marina. Both of these ladies have quite the fashion sensibility, once again proving that taste is genetic. 
Rosie's use of color combined with texture is what drew me to her. The pixelated pattern of her quilted jacket and the contrasting lined pattern of her skirt breaks up what might be an otherwise overwhelming block of color. 
She's also not afraid of wearing colors not usually worn with red - the fuschia scarf and the purple hat are bold choices, but ones that add to the boldness and spunk of this outfit. In contrast, her cowboy boots are faded and worn, contributing a more relaxed aspect.
Her daughter is wearing a beautiful princess dress, and faux-fur (it is Berkeley) jacket - to the playground. I love this child!

I like the jacket, its tweed(?) but a very modern color.
