hey babe, take a walk on the high side…


Faux fur coat: Thrift. Hat: H&M. Wool polo neck dress: H&M. Embroidered dyed skirt worn as a dress: Vintage. Jeans: Uniqlo. Shoes: Balenciaga. Bag: Rebecca Minkoff.
….because these wedges are high and that’s saying ALOT coming from me.
These are one of the Balenciaga purchases you saw from a week or so ago. They are super narrow and tight too. I ONLY bought them because of my cobbler. I gave them to him with fingers crossed, hoping he could stretch em a bit like he did with the ACNES and he did (thank God).
The dress I’m wearing is a long skirt which I pulled up and wore as a dress over a black wool dress and belted it. At the moment I’m really into creating layers where their normally wouldn’t be and making summer stuff applicable in the winter.
Hey Erika, we are shoe twins ; )
ps. Thank you Caroline for the piece you did on your blog about one of my outfits – K x

    I love those shoes sooooo much! They’re absolutely gorgeous. Wish I could find those at my local DSW 🙂 Also, I’m so inspired by how you layer things that I would never imagine could be layered, and you make them work! Love it!

    ahhh brilliant,Karen!!

    Yes we are shoe twins and sole sisters 😉 I’m so, so, so happy we scored these shoes, lady!
    The more I think about it this color is so versatile, worth every little penny.

    The floppy hat looks so great on you, make it your “signature” it works.

    PS. Congrats on the piece by Caroline.

    this would be so much cuter if you wore tights instead of pants… the proportions do not work.

    i’m sorry but no. it’s too much the hat, the coat, the shoes, the layers, it’s a but overwhelming. individually stunning, but together it just looks like a bag lady who put on ALL her nice stuff.
