Hope you all started your New Year off on the right foot. I'll share some photos of my NYE soon. It's the first one I've had in a while that was all it was hyped up to be. Which is to say: it was nice and not overhyped. ;)
But first things first: I can't stop wearing these AMAZING Kara Laricks scarves. Two days into 2014, it's already the Year of the Scarf for me. I can't get enough of them and I can't get them long and drapey enough.
This ice blue hooded scarf, in particular, is already a staple in my wardrobe. I knew before it even arrived that it was going to be the perfect contrast for this Escada coat I throw on any time I'm in a hurry. But this scarf is also the perfect counterpoint to the head-to-toe black Uniform of the average New Yorker. (Counterpoint might be the perfect way to describe my style in general, mightn't it?)
This jacket hangs open, no buttons or zipper, so a scarf that more closely resembles a hoodie is basically my hero.
I also bought the regular tie scarf in heather grey. Much lighter and therefore more portable. I keep it tossed in my bag with my gloves and a hat for all those days (there are many) when I failed to pay attention to a weather report. This one feels like classic Kara to me. (You might remember I've been a fan since day one of Fashion Star, a show I only continued to watch because I loved Kara.)
Yeah, the yacht is in storage so I'm stuck with this little guy but I don't seem to mind. ;)
In fact I feel like dancing. What were we talking about?
Right. These Moschino gloves I'm wearing are awesome but they're also the reason I don't do trades on Poshmark anymore. I'm not letting that stop me from enjoying them. ;)
This post is like a Who's Who of my favorite brands, by the way. Escada, Moschino, Missoni, Kara Laricks: I can die happy.
Breathe it all in.
Now here's a quick review:
The quality on these scarves is ace. They are that perfect kind of lush but not too delicate. They are truly unisex with nice length and roominess in the hood. Obviously higher end than the stuff Macy's and H&M did with Kara on Fashion Star. I'd have to try some of the actual clothes to compare it with the stuff from Saks. (You know I will sometime soon!)
KaraLaricks.com orders are filled through a site called byCO.com and I have to say how great they were, too. Their packaging has that indie, hand-wrapped touch and they include a cool little write-up of the designer you're supporting.
