Magic School Bus

This another find from Shareen's Vintage. It's a vintage Neiman Marcus dress, but I wore it as a vest to lunch yesterday.  Maybe in the summertime (when I have tan skin), I'll make it into a short dress! 
Worn with an American Apparel striped tank, J. Brand jeans Maria jeans (they hug the body so good), Karen Walker sunglasses, vintage jewelry, Robert Cavalli snake cuff, and YSL platforms
Also two things... 1) I found a pair of shoes yesterday that I cannot wait to show you all! 2) Updating Shopkarlascloset.com later today with some fun pieces so check it out if you want!

good idea to use the dress as a vest! love the heels, too. your post earrings are gorgeous. i have become much more apt to wearing post earrings lately. my hair is the cut as yours it seems, so perhaps thats why I've been liking these types of earrings better.

cheers.

Absolutely Mrs. K said...

this is what you do best: turning a very ordinary background into the most exuberayting background. the geometric lines of the garage door look very interesting. what a fabulous idea to wear that dress as a coat, this is what i call 'being creative stylish'. such a fabulous inspiration. and that color looks amazing on you. i love the combination with the 'simple jeans and the t-shirt'. the shoes look smashing, love the dark brown color and the stylish/feminine shape. Oh and you are wearing that fabulous ring!!!

Darina said...

what an amazing colour...and this combination with stripped AA....fantastic...♥

Façonner said...

It's so important to make colours pop around this time of year. Of course; if you're like me and live in London, it's even more important because obviously, we are not always blessed with sunshine! I have to say, I would prefer dresses to be kept as dresses but you do make this work rather well...and the shoes and bangle are just to die for!
