Dress: Vintage. Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell “Clinics”. Bag: Balenciaga. Hat: H&M. Black wool dress (Unseen): H&M. Parka: GAP
I’ve been wearing these space age shoes (my nick name for them) a lot since I bought them on sale at LF. They are literally beyond comfortable and get the most looks and spontaneous conversations from strangers more than any shoe I’ve ever worn. (During this shoot two girls asked me where did I get them).
To avoid freezing, I layered one of my fave vintage dresses over a black wool polo neck dress. (You remember when I wore this dress belted with a fur jacket here?). I doubled up on the tights again and wore the wool beanie (gasp! no fedora!?).
Melting snow is everywhere so the drops on the dress were inevitable. Welcome to New York winters….

    You’ve outdone yourself here, Karen! That hat is SUCH a beautiful peacock blue, and your solution– smart layering– to looking good in the cold is simply brilliant. Love, love, love.

    I gasped too!! No fedora!!! hehe. YOu look great with a beanie on chica. I almost bought a similar-looking one in cream few days ago… Don’t know why I didn’t get it.. Seeing it on you makes me want to get back to the store! I also love this blouse on you… I think I like this way better than belted… it’s free flowing 🙂 Although the belted one DID enhance the curves.. hmm… ok I like both I guess! 🙂
