Four Days

I spend most weekdays doing work at home or running errands so I don't always have someone to take a picture of what I'm wearing. This week, I decided to take a few quick snapshots of the things I wore!
Stopped by Forever21 the other day and picked up about ten of these gray pocket tanks... I've worn one each day this week! On Monday, I wore it with a knitted sweater from the thrift store, old Levi shorts, and Yves Saint Laurent tribute mary janes.
Wearing vintage linen trousers and necklace with a scarf tied as a belt from American Rag.
Wearing Comme des Garcons skirt with an Anthropologie cardigan, necklace from a friend, and Giuseppe Zanotti chain ankle boots.
Wearing a Zara leopard cardigan with a vintage leather checkered skirt.

 My friend Julie came over on Tuesday and brought me an entire box of vintage goodies, she's so sweet. This skirt she gave me has the coolest print!
Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!

I think that my absolute favorite of these. I love the juxtaposition of your sweater and the looseness of the shorts paired with the YSL tribute sandals.

Karla...oh Karla...your style is so marvelous! You have such a cute little figure that you could make a paper bag look good! Hey, why don't you try that..wrap yourself in a brown paper bag and throw on some fab accessories! haha Love the way you mixed patterns and colors. This proves that everything does not have to be so matchy matchy to be FAB! Really love your blog and I always get excited when I see that you have updated!

I LOVE the leopard and the checkered skirt. I'm so excited you chose to add a bunch of outfits. I need some serious inspiration for my Christmas outfit and you always look so chic and classy. I'm currently trying to nix my hippieness and embrace a more classic style. Also I will be meeting my bf's parents for the first time and I can't show up looking like i'm a "bad girl" (even if I am just a little though) =)

The checked mod skirt is fabulous, very much something I'd like myself. And note to self - remember to use scarf as belt. Why do I always forget this trick when it is so easy and looks amazing?

Aattlee said...

IT's so strange how you manage to put really wacky vintage pieces together in a way that maintains this effortless sophistication.I think it's because you always wear such incredible heels with an outfit. Favorite look=the second. :)

Do you have the same paintbrusher as kim kardash and mariah carey. Your legs/skin almost start to look like plastic barbie.

oh and the link to sincerelyjules is so incognito/sneaky. You could have mention her blog name (or put her in the blogroll). That would be nice.

anyway..love the jewellery!
