vintage calvin klein cut-offs.

A while back I stumbled across some great vintage cut-off online. I’ve been in desperate search for the perfect pair since last summer and just haven’t come across the right one. Even though I was totally uncertain if they would even fit I went ahead and ordered a pair. Well turns out the fit perfectly. (At least in terms of size.) BUT I am not sure about the length. They are great in the front but I do find the bootie a little revealing :) What do you guys think? I think they’ll be fine for going to the beach in L.A. this summer but not so sure if I should walk around Vienna with these on … might cause some unwanted attention, if you know what I mean!!

    die Shorts sind super! aber wirklich nur für den Strand in L.A., nicht für die Stadt ;-)

    The short look so cool but yes they are a little bit too short for the city ;)

    i love the studs! and yes they are super cheeky but i think that's perf for the beach and with opaque tights and chic flats or boots it would be perf for the city too.

    How about some lace shorts for underneath? Would look cool with the top and would fit the style and that way you could wear them in Vienna as well. Would be a shame if a piece of clothing can only be worn in a certain city :(

    wow, these shorts are amazing! But I agree, that they are perfect for the beach, not for the city!

    Very cute! I know what you mean about walking around in the city with them…but you're right, perfect for the summertime and the beach! And they fit you perfectly!!! :)

    These shorts could really attract unwandted attention, wouldn't wear them in the city either, but they really seem to be perfect for the beach. I'd love to go to L.A. too, I'm absolutely jealous, but if you keep writing about your experiences there, I'll be propitiated. ;)

    Hey Vicky!
    Du kannst sie auf jeden Fall tragen, allerdings sind die mMn nichts für die Stadt. Mir persönlich wären sie zu gewagt, aber es hängt auch immer davon ab, wo man ist. Am Strand von LA geht das wohl in Ordnung;-)

    Liebe Grüße

    holy shit, they are very short indeed. wouldn't wanna wear them in the city!

    They are quite short. You may feel uncomfortable once you get out into the public. Beach would be ok.

  16. Closet Fashionista says:

    Oooh I love those!!! :D :D

  17. Laura J says:

    I'm actually in desperate search too! WOuld you mind telling me what size you got and what size you normally are in the US? I'm a 24/25, but I'm not sure to go with XXS or XS. Let me know if you can, thanks!

  18. Laura says:

    I personally wouldn't feel comfortable wearing them off the beach because of the back, but you do pull them off! It's all about your comfort level. I like the reader's suggestion of lace underneath though!

  19. JillePille says:

    coole Short, ich hätte sie nur nicht ganz so kurz gemacht :) aber du kannst es tragen!!

  20. Peter says:

    honestly, i wouldn't even keep them. First because, buying shorts you're not sure if you're feeling comfortable in is not worth it. And even though you're super skinny, i don't think they have a flattering fit, i even doubt that they would have a flattering fit on anyone…

    Little lace and studds, so love it!

    they're cute! but i know what you mean about wearing them on the street here in vienna. i'll also be in LA this summer! and i think they'd make the perfect beach shorts!

  23. Holeh says:

    i love how you paired them with a simple black tank, very nineties. they are super cute but very short in the back. im sure you will find a great way to wear them though!
    xo, holeh

    Oh man, now that's some booty! I agree, nobody would even notice in LA but they may be a little wild for Vienna.. lol!

    Hi, I really love your blog and you are such an inspiration for me. I would like to create a blog but I'm afraid of bad comments and identity theft. I also fear that my blog post are boring or too boastful. Could you give me some advice please ? :)

    Thank you, xx

    Btw this outfit really reminds me of "Beverly Hills, 90210" – the original one hahha. This is totally something Donna or Branda would have worn ;) So I guess it's the perfect outfit for a day on the beach in LA!
