Skirt worn as a dress: Vintage (Lolli). Belt: Lolli. Clutch: Random cheap NY shop. Shoes: Bebe
Here’s a rare moment: me in a Carrie-like number.
The boyfriend (not pictured) and I attended a wedding yesterday. I wore a vintage chiffon skirt worn as a dress and black suede belt. It wraps around the waist several times so I felt like I was wrapped in a black bandage.
I met up with Daria again who I did a fun photo shoot with here. Of course my mouth opened and tongue rolled out upon seeing her Rock & Republic platforms which zip up the back with a spike zipper pull.
ps. That’s not my boyfriend in this pic. It’s my friend RJ. Michael is behind the lens!

    Wow, that’s very Carrie indeed, that colour looks so lovely against your skin tone. You should definitely wear more bluey-purple…haha. And your boyfriend and you look too cute together!

  2. Antonia says:

    Karen, you look so stunning-I think your hair looks best this way and brings out your features. I love that dress, it looks smashing with that belt, and that clutch looks more expensive than it is! I have to say again, your boyfriend really takes great photos…I love the one just above with the candles and flowers-the lighting is very romantic!! Hope you all had fun! πŸ™‚

  3. Diana says:

    what details (for the wedding) – i love that centerpiece!

  4. JC says:

    Wow…I love this outfit. I think its my favorite–more so because it was originally a skirt! love it!!! And love your friend’s heels. Have you SEEN the new (Nicholas Kirkwood for) Rodarte heels? A-MA-ZiNG.

    The only thing I would say to make it even more Carrie Bradshaw-like is to add a statement flower…

    Interesting…my mom has a skirt like this she doesn’t wear and I’ve been playing around with ideas for…perhaps I should look at an idea like this…

    that color was made for you and i love the cinching of the waist with the extra long belt. i bet you’d work wonders with/in the AA le sac dress.

  26. Karen says:

    Daria – you knew it would be! I had a great time and those damn shoes. OMG you need to wear them any time you and Gabe go out.

    Glenda – thanks! wow you are right. I wonder if F21 was doing a knock off?

    Jessica – I think I tried that dress on and kinda gave up in the dressing room. Too much work. LOL! Daria has it and makes it look amazing though.
