Trucks & Construction Zones

I've been borrowing my boyfriend's Dior dinner jacket for the past two months and I secretly am not planning on giving it back (just kidding, kind of). I love the satin pointy lapels and boxy structure with the rolled-up sleeves... I've always been a fan of oversized jackets paired with slinky shorts and skirts...it's all about proportions...
Worn with a silk blouse from Stone Cold Vintage,  Zara polka dot scarf, shorts by The Cassette Society, vintage jewelry, Super sunglasses, and Proenza Schouler ankle boots.

Hope everyone is staying warm, it's been really chilly lately and I love it!!

Ciao Karla,

I agree - If it is loose & over-sized on top, then it should be slim & streamlined on the bottom. Perfect proportions here, Karla. ♥ the shorts, tights, and Proenza boots.... And those Supers always look amazing on you... ☺

Happy New Year, Karla... ☄
