UNDERWORLD VIBES

MESH BODYSUIT C/O AKIRA (here)
SATIN DRESS / PRETTYLITTLETHING
VELVET BOMBER C/O SHEIN (here)
MINIMALIST HEELS / GOJANE

 

Finally some mesh!!! It’s so cool to layer it, especially under unexpected pieces like a satin slip dress. The combo incorporates both feminine and edgy pieces that really gives it a *cough* Underworld vibe. There’s just something about vampires that is romantic, yet kick-ass. This mesh bodysuit from AKIRA is a thong so it’s basically invisible under a delicate fabric like satin. Recently picked up another mesh item at Forever 21, somebody stop me. Also, I bought a pair of enormous black platforms. I need to show you all…….

WHAT I WORE: WIDE SLEEVES

WIDE SLEEVE SWEATER C/O SHEIN
LACE UP SHORTS/ AKIRA sold out
JACKET C/O DOPE
BOOTS/ EGO sold out

I’m back  and I’m excited to share with you all my current obsession: oversized wide sleeve tops (think Kanye West). The material of the sweater is thick and soft, and fit better than I had anticipated! I also had to throw on this killer embroidered bomber from DOPE. I’ve seen that this style of bomber has been popular so I had to get my hands on it, especially in this nude color. May I add that it is actually a men’s bomber? As you may or may not already know, I love scoring men’s pieces because they have a more relaxed fit/look. If you love this bomber you can use my code KARLA15 for 15% off your order! Lastly, my new block heel boots. The most perfect, Givenchy inspired, boots I had ever seen are now in my closet. Not only are they block heels, but they’re cylindrical. They’re currently sold out on the EGO site, but I’m sure they will be restocking soon. Block heel boots are the bees knees, I repeat. Until next time!

WHAT I WORE: ORIGINALS AND A SLIT DRESS

Sneakers: Adidas
Handbag: Diophy (here)

 

So I finally got my hands on the Adidas superstars, literally at half the original price. I’ve been pairing them with just about everything: jeans, shorts, and dresses. I posted a while back about how much I like slits, and this time is no different. First off, I love the color grey. Grey is still a safe color for me, because it doesn’t draw much attention and it’s neutral. Its not white, and it’s not black, it’s just right. I took a sporty approach, but you can easily throw on some single strap heels and a black clutch for an evening out. If this little number isn’t for you, you can look through more dresses here!

WHAT I WORE: BABY TEE AND LACE UP SHORTS

Denim Jacket: Forever 21

 

A couple of weeks back I had told one of my besties that I wanted lace up shorts, but I never found a pair that fit well. So of course AKIRA came into the picture with this pair that I had to have. I like that they can be paired with alot of simple tops, like a band tee or a baby tee. Not only that, but if you want to dress it up, you can wear it Kendall Jenner at Coachella style with a lace bra top. I’m petite, but my booty needs room, so I was so glad that the sizing was perfect. I went with a size small after contemplating between a small and medium. Shop the shorts here, or look through new arrivals here! Next I want to talk about the baby tee, which is literally…a baby tee.

So, how can you possibly get away with wearing a kids tee? Very simple.

  1. I picked this one up for $2 dollars at Forever 21 in the kids section, and you can too.
  2. Because kids have their own sizing: 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, and 11/12, it would be best to just try them on. (because I am small ontop, a 5/6 fit me perfectly.)
  3. There’s no rules. If you want to wear a kids tee, wear a kids tee. Its about how you rock it.

The true definition of a baby tee, would be Rumi Neely’s version, which you’ve undoubtedly seen all over her Instagram. This kids tee is a bit longer than the AYAI baby tees, but in reality, you don’t have to spend $79 on it. Let me tell you how. Quick DIY ladies: Buy the kids tee at forever 21, and in order to achieve the AYAI baby tee raw hem JUST CUT IT. I actually just got the idea as I was typing this, so I’ll be doing it myself soon.
