flares, fur and a snake print

Faux fur jacket: Topshop (worn a year ago here). Sheer snake print shirt: Vintage (Beacon’s Closet). Belt: Gift from Michael (thx lovely). Flared jeans: J Brand (love these): Doll Boutique. Snake cowboy boots: Vintage. Hat: Makins. Vintage satchel: Coach (eBay or get it new here). Suede bracelet: Spare fringe/tassles wrapped around wrist.
Ok let’s do this – first post of 2011.
It’s started wearing my favourites: A brimmed hat. A long hair fur jacket and flared jeans (God knows why it took me this long to get black ones I can wear forever). Yessssss.
I’ve noticed that I hardly wear button up shirts. If I do it’ll be one I reeeeeally love. Case in point: It’s transparent and snake print??? A no brainer – as Americans say.

    Great first post of 2011! Fabulous! (As always!) I love fur (faux of course). The way you mixed in snake print and flares makes it more casual. Great job!

    Oh, yeah…I need to ask you something, Karen!
    You’re a REALLY good fashion stylist, so I was inspired by you to create my own blog. I don’t know exactly what to call it, that’s why I’m asking you for help. I’ve provided my email below, so if you can, please contact me.

    (I also need to ask you how to dressup a plaid button up!)

    Thanks and Happy New Year!

    You’ve got to have a sheer leopard shirt moment. I just started a blog…it’s more abou other poeple than myself but that seems to be my life. I’d love it if you looked around because the likelihood of you featuring on it is huge. If you don’t mind of course.
