As in What Would Karen Do? Nope, not Karen Walker a la Will & Grace (that would be a different ensemble altogether), but Karen from one of my favorite shows, Californication, and whom I extolled the virtues of here, but where you can find even mo better virtues extolled here.

The major diff being that Karen would've rocked some 70s flares or at the very least, straight cut denim. Since I wore my flares yesterday, I thought I'd change it up with the skinnies today.
And also, I realize you're prolly already sick of seeing my J Simpson Dany's, but just deal, because not only is it supposed to frigging SNOW AGAIN this weekend, but once it gets warm for real, these babies will be oooot and abooot all the time. 
Or at least until I fall and break an ankle. 
Oh, hey - check THAT out - I threw a blazer in the mix. Cuz that's how Karen and I roll. 
We're cool like dat, cool like dat... 
Got the somewhat understated (for me) layered, organic looking jewelry like Karen might wear...

And that, my friends, is how you dress a Karen. Now all I need is David Duchovney to show up at my door with his sexaaaay five o'clock shadow and a flask of whiskey in his back pocket, and chill to some tunes:

This D-OPE music is Queens of Dogtown, from Californication. If that chick doesn't have the COOLEST voice I've ever heard, well, then, I'm the Queen of Merry Olde England.

I would love to see a Karen Walker inspired outfit. The magic to her look lie in her medication, though, not her accessories.
