bathroom antics

Shoes: Jessica Simpson. Dress: Forever 21. Socks: H&M. Crucifix: Fashionology.
More wood!
After a month ago of twittering (that’s a word??) about these monster wood platforms, I finally got them after enlisting a girlfriend’s thoughts during a ‘should I get them after weeks of pondering?’ Macys trip.
Finally – an alternative to the leopard prints which I’ve been wearing for ages.
The tan and wood reminds me a bit of the Celine Spring 2010 collection here where I LOVED seeing models wear nude wood platforms with everything.
The lace dress is Forever 21 bought about 3 weeks ago when it surfaced on their site. (I’ve just about given up trying to find a vintage version from a thrift shop).
ps. Have you lot started looking around at spring shoes yet?
UPDATE!!!Have a peak at Erika from Fashion Chalet’s post here on how she wore the same shoes!

    Karen, I absolutely love your hair.

    And as for the shoes: I’m trying to get over my personal refusal to wear anything “by” Jessica Simpson but this is the second time I’ve seen these shoes and I’m kind of loving them…I’d think I’d have to try them out in black though, knowing me. How are they in the real world, like, on the mean streets of New York? Are they walkable? Let me know how it goes once the snow melts.

    Yes! I cannot WAIT for spring shoes. Wood, platforms, studs. I want it all. Now.

    Love how you paired these… just screams romantic spring picnic to me. On a flat patch of grass, of course.

  7. Ally says:

    aaah i have the same dress and shoes. Recently did a couple posts with them (along with the F21 tulip dress that I had to have after seeing you in it). I have yet to wear the JS with socks, but you’ve inspired me to try it!
