Definitely winterizing this dress when it’s cold again in New York…

Dress: Second hand shop (similar here). Boots: Chloe (sold out but found similar looks here and here).  Bag: Second hand + DIY studded.  Belt: H&M. Leather jacket: Bird by Juicy Couture (this and this one are classics). Shades: Ray Ban. Necklaces – love em (online here and here). 
Found this dress at a local second hand shop a few weeks ago.  Added the belt to give it shape.  I’ll do a video next week showing how to winterize summer dresses since it will start getting cold soon.
The jacket I posted before (here) with a striped maxi.
I leave tomorrow for Barcelona Spain! (Mentioned in the MNG by Mango posts eg. here).    If anyone knows any places I must check out please let me know? I’ll be blogging/tweeting from over there so stay tuned.

    I absolutely love the outfit and this is perfect timing because I just bought a floral dress and don’t want to keep it hidden until spring.

    Have fun in Spain!!

    Paco Meralgo has THE BEST TAPAS IN TOWN!!! In my opinion of course…I visited Barcelona this same time last year and documented all the hotspots on my blog…check it out if you need some tips…especially since I’m a major foodie!

    I’m sure you’ll have a blast…can’t wait to see your coverage!

    Peace. Love. LOL!

    Barcelona is my absolute favorite city – such eclectic people, cuisine, and fashion! You have to check out Calle Riera Baixa in the El Raval neighborhood for the best vintage shops all on one street. It’s also a complete necessity to check out as many Zaras as possible – all of them are a little different, but there’s one on every block! And eat all the tapas you can!

    Hi Karen! , i’m from Barcelona, if you want eat in a good place (tapas) you have to go to Bitácora in Balboa street in Barceloneta area, you have to ask for tapas an stay in their terrace, you will eat very, very good and it’s not expensive ( you can see it in my blog, i posted about this place in july, and the name of the post it’s “nos vamos de tapeo”). And if you want to go shopping vintage go to Riera Baixa in the center of the city and in this street you will find a lot of little shops specially i love Galalith. For vintage sun glasses go to Wild in Joaquin Costa.
    I hope you enjoy in Barcelona and if you need something let me know!!!! hahah

    Oh, I love a good print! No way could I walk in those shoes, so more power to you! I think if I were going to winterize that dress, I would put a tissue-thin turtleneck, tights and boots with it. Have lots of fun on your trip!

    Fabulous! The mix between the summer dress, very colorful and fluid and the stiff leather jacket is a real statement. Very inspirational!
