Winter hasn’t been so bad this year (knocks on wood) so I don’t mind braving the cold in a dress every now and then with some stockings to keep the stems warm. However, I can’t shake off the fact that all I wear is black during this cold season. Hell, I don’t even want to dress up as I normally do. Part of me wishes I could just walk around in a snuggie all day and be invisible so no one would notice lol. The other part of me can’t go even 2 days without being creative with my clothes. Apparently, playing dress up never gets old for some of us folk.
Anyway, on this day I was drenched in Karen Millen. I wore my favorite dress and coat from her recent collection. The dress sports an awesome plaid print and an abstract peplum/bust and the pony coat has a black on black houndstooth print, leather accents, and a belted waist. I am absolutely in love with both of these pieces so I wore them together. The dress makes me feel sassy while the coat keeps me warm and stylish in this weather. I cannot tell you how pleased I am with this brand. Karen Millen dresses are tailored to PERFECTION and I have been a major fan since I discovered the store on Prince Street 5 years ago. Every KM dress is a statement piece and I almost feel terrible for letting you all know my best kept secret lol. To compliment both pieces I wore some leather gloves, a Betsey Johnson satchel, back seam hosiery, my favorite vintage hat, and my Agent Provocateur patent leather pumps. Not too shabby for a cold day in brick city ;).I love this hat and wear it every time I am too lazy to do my hair lol. Looks great with the dress!
LOVE this Karen Millen Dress. I have a collection of plaid dresses that have abstract tailoring, none of which are Viviane Westwood but remind me of her designs so much!
