I blame Balenciaga for putting pointy sock boots firmly back on the style map. I say ‘back’ because they point sock boots have been around for years but the Balenciaga knife boots put the most severe witchy twist on them and an ‘Crap I want that vibe.’ To be honest I wasn’t even sold on the Balenciaga’s for weeks, but like a song on the radio, the repeat exposure chips away. Mine are from Zara and per my snapchat on Saturday (and Instagram stories), even
Spending last weekend upstate was a reminder that Fall really is here. Not even sort of but actually here. Being an avid believer that it’s full on transitional weather, I made a how to wear outfits in the Fall video on my current YouTube video. It’s really just about the Falll transition with five Fall outfit ideas to hopefully get you thinking about what to wear for Autumn. Let me know which look you like and please subscribe to my YouTube channel! I’m planning a Fall
Little bags are having a moment again but the style of a mini suitcase is a personal favorite. Of course the Mark Cross Grace bags have been a long time obsession but I didn’t want to fork out the price for such a small bag. I acted on my own blog post research from last month and ordered the above Aspinals of London trunk bag and love it! It comes with a detachable longer shoulder strap and it is made of genuine leather (I actually smell it every now and then, I know pathetic
This is what I wore for the Bill Cunningham memorial on Monday afternoon. The end of the invitation read simply: Dress For Bill, so bright colors it was. For those that don’t know, Bill was really one of the first ever street style photographers who’s prolific work was only ever overshadowed by his incredible sincere and endearing personality. The memorial was a who’s who of guests from Editor in Chiefs of magazines to designers to his colleagues from The New York Times.
Well not really but this Queen bag plus the block heels feels a bit like it. Something about a vintage structured bag that I cannot walk past. Same applies to being in a Barneys or Berdorf too, if it’s structured with a top handle I’m probably trying it on. Busted out the burn out velvet cardi/jacket that’s about what? five years old? I love when a trend comes around and you already have it in your wardrobe… Speaking of velvet, the next post is an epic velvet boot and
These shoes are another jaw dislocates and hits the floor moment when tried on about a month ago. Snapchat fam saw the whole story unfold at the shop. Like Kate said in the hilarious Going For Gold post, when you wear them you feel like the Queen mother on acid. A birthday gift to myself, I’ve mostly worn them with denim cut offs (shown on Instastories @karenbritchick) but clashed them with prints this time! ps. If anyone wants them in blue suede, check out my shop for them. pps. Links
I love the concept of an almost floor sweeping gown/dress/kimono worn as a cardi. The above one is an old Zara find that can be worn both ways (or at least to me it can) so I wore it in said fashion. For those that grew up wearing cardigans like me, this is the ultimate comfort blanket summer-ized. Question: Topshop block heels or Chuck Taylors? Both are on display to show the difference but which is more you? Something strappy or tomboy casual? . . . Dress worn as summer cardi: Zara
The Chanel 2016/2017 show in Cuba was absolutely brilliant. It makes me proud to be an old school fedora wearer and dipper into menswear. Cropped pants, simple shirts, berets, faded t-shirts and long dresses. Trust me, if I had a big fat cigar I would’ve rocked it as a prop. Grab a cuppa, sit back and get some Cuban inspiration in the video above. Surplus photos on my Instagram (Karenbritchick) on Monday! KEY PIECES FOR THE VIBE: Mannish brogues and slides: Michael Kors patent oxfords.

Wearing: Asos trench, Zara knit (similar here), Topshop jeans, Chloe boots, Proenza Schouler bag, Celine sunglasses. You can probably tell straight away that these photos aren’t recent… they are back from my last visit to NYC in February. As soon as I arrived it snapped to the depths of winter below -20 degrees celsius each day and blankets of snow. I had an intense few weeks before this, flying 110+ hours within three weeks between Sydney – Hong Kong – Maldives – Sydney

(Zara sweater, Ksubi shorts, Stuart Weitzman sandals, Karen Walker Anytime sunglasses, Rag & Bone Enfield bag) I suddenly want all tops in this exact length and it’s probably not going to happen for me. Very important for things to gently graze the top of the denim when the arms are not raised. Why do these things plague me even. The post sliver appeared first on fashiontoast.
