Black & White

Today I tried on a dress that I've had for a while now, but never worn it. Thought I'd debut it here on the blog!
I feel like most of the dresses I own are made of really great fabrics. The ruffled skirt of the dress is made of heavy taffeta...
Worn with a pair of two-tone tights from American Apparel, vintage tortoise box clutch and belt, and Alaia cut-out pumps.
Random photo I took sometime this week... this jacket is made of crepe satin- so lux. I love wearing it as a dress!

Also another random photo... my boyfriend's Margiela sneakers. I wish I could find these in a girl version...
Hope everyone has had a beautiful week!

Erica said...

Love your blog! BUT...(haha)...I miss old Karla...I understand fashion evolves and the fact that you are getting older means you are evolving and consequently your style is...but the other day I was looking at some of your older stuff and I miss the VERY VERY edgy Karla. You are more classic now... much more conservative...which is great...but bring us some edge! I'll love you regardless!

I think it's pretty clear that the pink jacket/dress is a huge favorite...I absolutely love the color and texture. But my question is, how do you make a jacket work as a dress without tights/leggings? I'd like to try this some time and just want to know the best way to do it...slip...safety pin closure...or just plain bravery. Love to know the behind the scenes tricks and tips.

Thanks!
