T-shirt: Christopher Kane for Topshop. Jeans: Uniqlo. Shoes: Aldo. Bag: Vintage (DIY studded). Blazer: Zara (not seen)
I reeeeally like photo print designs. Especially since first getting the H&M beach T-shirt dress that I posted about (with video) here.
I had a blazer on over this but couldn’t be asked to put it on for these pics. It was fun though seeing a big mouth and teeth peaking out from under a structured jacket.
The cut on this one by the much talked about Christopher Kane for Topshop is loose with wide slashed arm holes and a boxy cut so it hangs with a deliberate drape. I bought mine several sizes too big for skinnies.

    I don’t really like this on you because I think the top hides your beautiful shape. It isn’t doing much for you. You look better in floaty dresses or clothes that skim/hug your body. You have a great figure so you might as well show it off! I know lots of people like this Christopher Kane stuff, but just my honest opinion =)

    I love your NYC shots…and those shoes!

    i just love the shape of that shirt; it fits and hangs like a dream. although i’m not sure i could pull off something so loud, you seriously look aaaamazing. i think it’s how you paired it with such simple pieces, like the jeans and the shoes.
    i also can’t get over how awesome that bag is!!

    Okay, I’m not sure about this tee… Even if I saw it a lot a time… But, the shape fits you really well, with skinny and booties, it rocks!

  11. Laura says:

    I love that tee. Amazing!

  12. Dominika says:

    great outfit! ^^
    i was going to buy that t-shirt but they’re all sold out! i think I’m gonna buy the dress with that print ^^.

  13. Taylor B. says:

    I thought you would have bought the dress-version for sure! The shirt looks great, though.

  14. Sarah says:

    This shirt is so much better than the dress – much less overwhelming. It looks really great on you!

  15. Nini's Style says:

    The tee shirt is way cool!!!! Love your style Karen.

  16. Ara says:

    Love the whole look. just found your blog, I’m liking it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Daria says:

    love. Love. LOVE!

  18. WJ says:

    I freaked out when I saw this on you as I also bought this top and wanted it to be more fitted…glad to read that you purposely bought it a few sizes larger! I think you work it quite well, although it’s not what we usually expect from you stylistically.

    Hey Karen, I’ve been a reader of your blog for a few monthes now and I love your style! I was wondering how was the comfort and sizing on these aldo shoes and the topshop boots? I don’t live in NY so it’s online for me. ๐Ÿ™

    Also, it seems that the t-shirt already sold out online? I don’t see it there!

  20. Karen says:

    Jacqueline – its definitely not everyone’s cup of tea but I so love this thing ; ))) thanks for your honesty!!

    Daria – and you will love yours too!!!! By end of the week. Promise!!!!

    Kyouko – its at the store. Yes, I noticed its now sold out on line too. The Aldo shoes are EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE. Possibly the most I’ve ever bought. Topshop ones are comfy too but the Aldos are like slippers.

    Taylor B – I was convinced the dress was going to be mine, but I quickly realized the T would get a ton more wear and be more versatile.

    Caylee – I’m glad you like my new DIY : )) Yea its loud but thats WHY i wanted it. LOL!!

    I always loved the Kane gorilla print too so this to me was a poor man’s fix I could definitely buy into. Literally.

    Thx all!!!

    looks fabulous. im adddicted to my gorilla chris kane one. i think its quite intense and sometimes scares people off but find it so fun to wear.

    I absolutely adore your style which is why I called you my hero some comments back. However, I cannot co-sign this C. Kane business. It is b e y o n d trendy and I am disheartened (even if but slightly) when I see people like yourself who are clearly pioneers, succumbing to the “it” and “now” pieces. I’d rather see you continue to soar above that.
