Denim + Diamonds

Posted on
White shirt: Zara.  Leather vest: H&M. Dungarees: H&M (on clearance).  Wedges: River Island (thx Paula!). Shades: Ray Ban.  Lipstick: Nars ‘Schiap’ Bracelet: Intermix.
Some pics taken on Saturday. Yes.  It was that mild in the afternoon.


The dungarees were one of the things I found yesterday while starting another clothes sort out.  I LOVE dungarees.  Found a dress form (thx twitter followers) and have started taking pictures for the blog shop.  New stuff is up on the site right now!!! 

I wore the dungys as oversized jeans with a loose shirt and white leather vest on top.  The rhinestone bracelet was a lucky clearance find over a year ago.  I wear it casually with old shirts/Tees and denim.

ps. The white vest has fueled my interest in white leathers. Now I’m on the hunt for a white leather motor jacket!! Any good recs let me know please!?

pps. Want to find short dungys like this one day too.

Boyfriend jeans: Madewell
White vest: Topshop or this one.
Braclets: here, here & here.  
Shades: Ray Ban (same as mine). 
Wedges: Topshop or Urban Outfitters
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff or Marc by Marc

    Love your dungarees.. I’m still on the lookout for a pair..


    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/05623095025020138653 Karen

      They aren’t around that often but do check H&M sometimes and places like that. Also I see loads in thrift/Salvation Army type places if you don’t mind worn.

    did you do something new with your hair? I don’t know… they look different

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/05623095025020138653 Karen

      They? lol…. I didn’t straighten it like I usually do. This time I just let it air dry with a little conditioner in it.

    I really like the white jacket, that remind me a jacket I saw at Sandro, the Parisian clothier. I read an article about this awesome store that just arrived in New York this year http://www.frenchcultureguide.com/12/sandro-brings-parisian-style-to-new-york/

    Hi Karen,
    any word on when that white leather vest will be in shop at H&M? i know they are gearing up for the Marni x H&M launch, but I wanted to know if it would be in at the same time or after that. I live in LA and checked this past Sunday and it wasn’t in store yet. Just asking in case they give you that kind of info.

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/05623095025020138653 Karen

      Not sure but I think its right now!! Do start checking. I have a feeling its either now or about to come out.

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/05623095025020138653 Karen

      UPDATE!! I spoke to H&M. The white leather vest will hit stores from end of March!!!
