Black silk

q1-1.jpg picture by stylebook18q3-1.jpg picture by stylebook18q4-1.jpg picture by stylebook18q6-1.jpg picture by stylebook18

This drop crotch jumpsuit is probably the greatest invention Zara has ever made. It's like the silk jammies I always wanted, but never owned. I've worn it two days in a row due to it being so damn comfortable(well except for when I sit down on a freezing cold driver seat- thank God for seat warmers). 

Anyway, I'll be trialing this jumpsuit with various pieces going over and underneath it... today, a velvet-collared cropped blazer made the perfect companion.

Wearing a vintage blazer, Zara silk jumpsuit, and Bakers strappy buttoned heels

i love those shoes! been thinking of getting a pair from bakers (other style).

do u feel bakers shoes run true to size? i'm a size 7 in nine west shoes and wanted to get 7 in bakers. please let me know your experience with shoe size from them. thanks.:)

caylee said...

that jumpsuit looks great on you, and it can easily transition between seasons (well, you don't really have seasons, but oh well!)

and i was hoping you would give us a peek at the heels you've alluded to for the past two posts =)

Fab as always. Really love the shoes.

karla said...

emily: It's just a combo of colors- I used smashbox's "safari" and "champagne" shadows and blended it with black gel liner called "stila smudge pot" :)

glamouricious: Bakers shoes fit pretty true to size. I'm a 7.5 in Nine West heels and a 7.5 in Bakers. Hope that helped!

enigmas said...

you look stunning, but i wish you hadn't obscured the jumpsuit with the blazer so i could see it better.

i was totally contemplating those heels by the way. are they comfortable?

Val said...

oh goodness the shoes are amazing! love the jumpsuit, you look great girl.

Gabrielle said...

Those heels are gorgeous. Remind me of Alaia for some reason. And I love the mixing of textures: silk and velvet.

Also love your smoky eye make-up. Can you do a beauty tutorial soon?

Oh and I'm not sure if you already answered this but what is your username on polyvore? I would love to see the rest of your outfits.

Anonymous said...

This is one of my favorite outfits of yours ever, Karla. You look chic and edgy at the same time. I wish I could see the front of the jumpsuit better though.

Anonymous said...

Lauren said...

This is the 1st time I've noticed your tattoos with an ensemble. The whole thing together - the all black, the tattoos, the eye makeup, the hair - you are a force to be reckoned with. If I saw you walking down the street I wouldn't no whether to be intimated, jealous, or want to take a photograph of you. Mos def one of my favorite posts in awhile.

belle.chantelle said...

love it. And the shoes..of course. ^-^

moore said...

jumpsuit can be tricky but this is gorgeous. you look great Karla.. :)

Wanderlusting said...

Funny. I'm probably the only one here who isn't jumping for joy over this one.

I DESPISE jumpsuits AND drop crotch's, so the fact that Zara of all places is making them kind of threw me for a loop.

That said, while it's something I can't pull off, you do it well. I think it has a lot to do with your confidence and the drape of that black silk.

It makes it elegant and classic. Not trendy.

O said...

What a great all black outfit! You wear it so perfectly!!

Taghrid said...

holy crap karla, me and you are on the same wavelength. I picked that jumpsuit up for 10 bucks 2 saturdays ago..i'm returning mine its way to baggy on me. you look good tho. xo

trendkat said...

I LOVE all of that black!

can't really see the jumpsuit in these pics, as you've hidden it with the clunky blazer, maybe post a shot where you've actually styled it somehow, and we can see it ? ? ?

I was seriously considering buying those shoes just yesterday!
Are they (relatively) comfortable or are they toe-killers?
