Mens trousers: Uniqlo.  Crochet top: vintage. Bag: Alexander Wang. Sandals: Sigerson Morrison. Shades: Ray Ban
Went to Pastis recently and wore men’s trousers with a metallic crochet top found ages ago.  
Love it’s high neck and the bell sleeves (huge bell fan as you lot know).  Normally I’d probably wear a long skirt with this (OMG I’d die if I found a crochet maxi!!) but it’s a change to wear oversized trousers instead (these mens Uniqlo ones fit well on women’s hips if you try a size up).  Will keep my eyes peeled for the maxi though – you know me. 
Remember me mentioning borrowing my friend’s black Wang bag? She’s got my beige one (seen on me here). We’re trying out each others for a few weeks.  Still not sure if I should keep my beige.
What do you think – beige or black?
Anyway it’s Friday at the time of writing this post so enjoy the weekend.  
Doing anything?
pps. Thx Christeric for the UNIF love πŸ™‚

    Totally smitten with the bell sleeves…I’m a sucker for those kind of tops, too. You look beautiful in it, and you make the men’s trousers look so chic!

    I say go for the black. The beige is too typical. I know I know, should say that for the black, but the black is more versatile. And honestly (apart from the shirt) the bag was the first thing that drew my eye!
    oh and LOVE ur outfit!

    Finally able to comment again.. Hi Karen!! You look “DANGEROUS” in your first photo. Loving it!! Top reminds me of an adult version of the crochet vest our parents dressed us with as babies..

  13. Lisa says:

    I like your top. I like your post on the first photo.

  14. Milda says:

    You look so great in a crop top with your figure πŸ™‚
    I love both the beige and black bags, but maybe keep the beige because most people have the black? Sadly, that’s the best logic I can come up with!

  15. letizia says:

    Love that look, love the crochet top, wonderful Karen !

  16. Sarah says:

    well, the thing with beige and tan leathers, is the leather shines through alot more beautifully -except they scratch up and get stained easier. but this can be fixed by using black polish or black leather dye which would work even better, it will cover up all the scratches and look new again…so if you keep the tan bag you can use it till it gets mucky and then dye it black to get the best of both worlds!… lol just a suggestion…

  17. KINGA says:

    you look so beautiful! love your top! xx.

  18. this chick's got style says:

    Such pretty light in these pictures πŸ™‚ And I’m still a fan of your bag!

  19. Catherine says:

    1. Love the look entirely. I realise I’ve been neglecting dress trousers lately in favour of my leather skinnies.

    2. Your hair is perfect.

    3. I prefer the black Wang.

    4. I’m sure you already know this, but the black glittery Topshop (GZ-lookey like) boots you posted about a couple of weeks back are in stock. I’m holding out for the silver ones, though.

  23. β™₯Run With Fashionβ™₯ says:

    Love the trousers and your sandals.
    hmmmmmmm, I love both the black and the beige, buuut….I have to say I’d stick with the beige. πŸ™‚
    I think it shows off the bag better in beige rather than black, and I love how the leather of the beige gives off the worn look. πŸ™‚

  24. Kamilla says:
