Mirror Image

Really sorry for lagging on posts for this blog-sometimes it's hard for me to take photos during the week, but I promise to post way more often like I used to.

So, I've been wearing a lot of basic/uniform pieces for a few days now, sticking to neutral colors and simple silhouettes. I'm not sure why I haven't been putting much thought into what I wear lately, but it's kind of more freeing and uncomplicated that way.
I wore this on a trip to Sephora to buy Lancome's makeup primer and an eyebrow brush. I'm wearing a transparent vintage silk blouse, striped trousers from Kiliwatch, YSL criss-cross strap pumps, Karen Walker tortoise sunglasses, and a vintage box clutch from Screaming Mimi's.
Anyway, have to go mail in a parking ticket and grab some lunch! Take care!

Anonymous said...

You are so beautiful! I love your blouse & your to-die-for shoes...but your pants unfortunately are not flattering on you, compared to other outfits. You really have a gift on how to dress your body. Obviously you like your pants which is the only thing that matters.

THOSE SHOES!

DISTRIKMODE said...

Sometimes simple can be really just chic and doesn't look like you're trying too hard :) I actually really like this outfit! Although I may not be the biggest fan of those pants (i don't know why I'm so fearful of big stripes, even despite it to be recognized as "slimming" when printed vertically) but I can TOTALLY agree with your choice of shirt... Everything about it screams FRESH!! -- the color, the cut, the transparent fabric.. and never thought that I would, but I actually like how you combined the white with the browns. Your overall look is very nicely done and inspirational Karla :)

very bad choice in pants, seen as though you have chunky legs already, these pants highlight that. In saying that, I love your blouse.
