Throw a Brick

Don't ask why, but I am kind of crazy about this golden draped robe I picked up at one of my favorite vintage shops. As soon as I laid my eyes on it I envisioned it with a pair of great jeans and a simple white tank... most comfortable outfit ever, especially with the cool/sunny weather we're having right now!

Wearing vintage satin jacket from American Rag, random white tank, and Bebe cut-out heels

I think you can use a bath robe; and still look as stunning!(:

AND! Could you please give a mention; on WHAT you used to slash your jeans?! I want to slash mine; (a mini slash) and I'm a little apprehensive!

Thanks!

Monika P. said...

Lately I'm kind of crazy about that light caramel color. It looks great and feminine. Pity that In Poland is 50 degrees right now so it's too cold for that kind of outfits. Lucky you that you live in California!:)

Cindy said...

i love the contrast of the decadent silk vs. the simplicity of the rest of the look, prefect styling.
i have a short silk asian inspired robe that i wear like that. it's such an effortless look.

kristin said...

LOVE your style, karla :D

i also wonder about something...
i live in norway, and in the autumn/winter, it's so cold, and i wondered if you had some tips to what i can wear? :D

The Barely Tattoo'd Artist said...

Not many can pull off a gold garment, but you are one of the few...I'm curious to see how you'd wear this in other ways as well...

As always, impeccable shoes...every last one is stunningly beautiful and reminds me that I need to get back into rebuilding my collection, especially since a lot of them are 5 to 6 years old and have seen better days...

elisa-johanna said...

Nice outfit but I gotta say that I'm more jealous about the weather your having. It's pouring rain in Estonia it's getting colder and colder every day..

Anonymous said...

You have such fabulous style, very unique and not boring and overly trendy. Its sometimes hard to step outside of the box and make style your own, but you definitely do it. I hope you will one day grow your beautiful hair back out though...for sure you would look great even with no hair, but your long hair was gorgeous. I only wish mine were thick and lustrous enough to look so good long! :-) But you are a doll either way...lucky girl!

idk.. I dont really like how you did it. Maybe if it was used as a dress rather than a robe I would.
You should try it with a big belt! =)
