Back in Black & Green

I was going through my closet this morning looking for something fancy to wear because all I've worn this whole week are ratty Levi 501s and an old pair of tweed trousers and I found this altered silk dress that I bought a while back. It was way big when I first got it, but as usual I re-worked it to make it fit perfectly.
Wore the dress from Hubba Hubba with my new pair of Giuseppe Zanotti chain-link ankle boots. I got them as a gift for my birthday and I love them.

Going to go watch Auntie Mame and relax... I think I ate way too many drunkman noodles. Night!

Cigdem Atilla said...

dear karla, I've been enjoying your blog, reading it religiously for quiet some time now. I love the photos and your quirky sense of style! I too am a fan of vintage clothing and accessories. Most vintage items I own are from my mom's wardrobe. your last post surprised me as the purse in the photo looks exactly like the one I own! Mine is from the eighties and it used to belong to my mom. So I'm kinda wondering if your purse is vintage or not? I'd be really happy if you'd give some detail about your purse. keep up with your wonderful posts, they really make my day!

I would LOVE to see you in your ratty Levi 501s and an old pair of tweed trousers.

I don't only want to see pics of you dressed up but dressed down as well. I am curious what you usually wear everyday because from my understanding and comments I have seen you make, it seems you only usally post pics if you are dressing up.

Hopefully that wish can be granted. Love your blog by the way!!
