In Store Now: Karen Walker "North" at The Department Store

Although it hit Karen Walker stores on Saturday, I didn't get a chance to check out the new spring collection until I finally had a free moment on Wednesday afternoon. I quickly jetted over to Karen Walker at The Department Store (my store of choice) to have a peruse and try on of the new range "North". There are so many great pieces - and a sunny afternoon makes everything look even better. Favorite pieces and features of mine several of the fresh (and very Karen) prints - particularly the stripe, the floral and the badge print - and the archival "Liberal & Miserable" t-shirts. I'm always a sucker for cashmere and there are plenty of lightweight, transeasonal offerings. I even sucked up the courage to bare my pale winter legs and try on a pair of the chambray tie-front shorts - and I'm glad I did as they proved to be surprisingly flattering (one always expects the worst when trying summer garments on in winter) and I ended up putting a pair on layby. I highly recommend finding some time to check out the new range, if you haven't already that is.

    I love exploring brand new collections. Also can't wait for resort to come out. The hot pink!

  2. I honestly can't wait for Resort either, really loving the tennis dresses - you wouldn't happen to know when it is coming out would you?

  7. Hi Anon,

    They run pretty true to size, a little larger than usual!! I'm usually an 8 in her shorts and i got an 8 in these. super comfortable too! Quite short though, so you have to be okay with your upper thighs lol. But cute.

    hope this helps!
