Old School!

Dress: H&M (old).  I like this Topshop denim number.  Shoes: Coach – comes in blue too but loved the pearl colour.  The shoes remind me of Prada’s. Shades: Ray-Ban.  Watch: Gucci. Coat: Vintage. Try River Island or Ashley B.  I lust for this Carven. Bag: Coach (old).  See my red one (here) and black one (here)!!  No, this post is not sponsored by Coach but obviously I dig their retro style stuff.
This is our fave hole in the wall pizza place.  I didn’t know good pizza till I moved from London to New York.  Before I thought Pizza Hut was the dogs bollocks until I crossed the pond.  
We stumbled on this old spot (it’s over thirty years old) as of two months ago and we are hooked.  Well – outside of another hole in the wall place in Harlem that is so damn good we’ll drive there for a pie.  I digress…
How cool are these block heeled sling backs?  They look like the square toed shoes that I ALWAYS looked for in vintage shops but never found in a size 10 (makes sense being vintage).  These are so retro mod and look nothing like Coach.  It was love at first site.  Wore them with a wool dress that I forgot I had.  At the end of winter I forget I have wool dresses – really Karen?
ps. Pepperoni is one of my fave pizzas.  Unless it’s from that Harlem place I mentioned where it’s so good that their plain slice blows any topping pizza out the door.   Clearly pizza is my food nirvana. 
 Besides desserts.

    That fur looks so cozy and warm!! Love it!! Omg girl have you been to Di Fara’s in brooklyn? If not you need to!! It’s another whole in the wall but they make the most amazing pizza ever. The wait time is always insane (30 minutes) but completely worth it! You’ll want to have more than a slice, trust me. 🙂

      No I haven’t!!! I’ll note it down although the long queue puts me off. I’ve been to famous type pizza spots where it was a super long wait and the pizza was so disappointing!! I’ll have a look though. Biggest way to know is, is the line all tourists. If it is I run the opposite direction! LOL : ))

    • Mindy says:

      Haha! You and the hubs can shoot for the blog while you wait and your pizza will be done before you even know it! I’ve only been there once over the summer, not a single tourist in sight! It’s in the middle of Brooklyn, they don’t venture that far. LOL

    Love those shoes a lot and love this retro look. I love pizza too and I am really picky. Pepperoni is one of my favorites. I wish I could try some in New York right now.

      Thanks lovely I love how vintage they look. Ha pizza twins. If you do come over you MUST get a slice or two and I’ll tell you about the Harlem place.

    Man, I love the way you dress! I’ve checked out every look you’ve posted since I discovered your blog a few months ago. You have such great style. Those shoes ARE amazing. The pizza sounds good too!


    • Karen says:

      oh wow thank you for going through the old posts and yes the shoes are my biggest shoe obsession which says a lot considering my shoe shelf!
