Where did u get that – denim shirt

Oversized shirts work wonders.  Especially in making a body con dress instantly more casual and you feel less like ‘I’m wearing a tight dress and I hope no one’s staring at my ass.’  Apart from being the stylishly ‘oh I just threw this old thing on’ perfect layer piece, big shirts are also the security blanket for grown ups.
I stopped Marybeth to ask her about hers which is from American Apparel.  She’s reminded me about flinging one of my loose shirts over a short dress. 
Marybeth – did you finally end up getting the black versions of the boots we have?

Similars to her look:

Sam Edelman boots or these if you prefer plainer versions
LeSportsac bag
Obey Mason, GAP or Hydrogen denim shirt
T by Alexander Wang dress

    Karen, more more more! Love that you take the effort to scope the city out and report back to your readers…I can definitely see this going into a very “Sartorialist” direction for you, but even better!! Especially when we want to know…where did she get that?? Brilliant!

    Peace. Love. LOL!

    i love the street style direction you’re going in, and you tell people where they can get the look. however, i feel like you covered a girl like her before! don’t be afraid to find more outrageously dressed new yorkers, like that guy in the last WDYGT post. he. was. awesome. 😀

    I like the WDYGT posts. Very inspiring. I’m going to try this look with a black dress, denim shirt and booties.

    i like such posts. i believe it’s also in line with the intent of your blog.

    if the denim shirt were indeed oversized, it’d go well with a mini bodycon dress. but this is nice too.
