Nice photos..

Liv/e in Both Senses said...

Really like the loose wide-leg pants! There is hope for me yet! I will find nice ways of dressing and coping with the Australian Summer.

You would think being born here would help... It doesn't.

Hope your tech issues manage to get sorted...upgrading RAM shouldn't be too expensive.

Hehe...hear that? It's me sounding like I know what I'm talking about!!

sueper said...

Kiss!

Lisa said...

definately digging wide legs.

I really like your wallet, it brings a color hint to your outfit.

Tinkerbell and fairies said...

I'm all for relaxed style. cool.

She's Dressing Up said...

The hat really makes this outfit, love it

Sasi said...

Love this outfit:) And agreed with one of the girls, you look really different!! Probably the fringe?!
Oh, I hope it's ok if I link you on my blog! You've got such a style!

Tracy said...

Hi!
I knew about your blog in a fashion spanish blog and I completely fell in love with it.
I wanna do the same that you are doing but it seems that you have tons of clothes and I just have 1 ton (or that is what my mum says).

I'm your new fan (=

Anna Pope said...

Really love your hat, looks great on you!

Maeva said...

I love this loose and cool outfit. On the other hand, it gives you A real big style.

karina said...

I love this outfit very much!
I check your blog regularly and this is far my favourite outfit.
I have to get pants like that for me!

ModeJunkie said...

i hate that it's vintage. it means that it's nowhere for me to buy. i still haven't found my perfect one. congrats on your find! it makes your legs def. longer. lurve it!

Ida said...

That outfit, Karla, wow, I am speechless. It could NOT get any better as it is perfection. I SO love your style.

Robin said...

Every look looks good on you even those wide- legged jeans

Ashleigh said...

gotta love vintage,....no matter how hard people ay try to copy your look...they won't get that EXACT look... =) you look great...like how you sort of "switched it up"...

Dakota77 said...

So effortless... I love the look. The pants looks great! Os it the first time you're wearing this hat? I can't remember you wearing it.

punky said...

This is a bad month for computers.

BEAYCHE said...

karla, why you so fierce?

P said...

I love the man-style/androgyny of this look! You look so different. I almost didn't recognise you in the first pic! I think its because I'm used to seeing you with a heavy fringe or something. You're my style-inspiration for the coming summer (I'm in Australia) - its very hard to look chic in suffocating heat, but you pull it off so well and have given me hope that, this summer, I can too!

vix said...

I love this. You just look so god damn cool. Ps. Love the dark eye makeup!

Taghrid said...

so refreshing to see you without your bangs! great hat.

♥ fashion chalet said...

I heart this look on you :)

J'Adore Fashion said...

amanda said...

whoa! you look like a different person without bangs!

MongoosePouco said...

love this!
You look so different in the first pic!

Richel said...

you look incredibly gorgeous!

Holly said...

you look amazing! i have been spying your sweet blog for awhile now. whoever shot these photos did a great job, they give off an editorial feeling!

Molly Shameless et LoLita said...

I am certainly loving the half-tucked look with your tank.

I have been tempted to buy myself a James Perse tank, but your H&M one looks just like a James Perse, so maybe I can actually find one for less than $55.

I also really appreciate your simple-accessorizing...so chic.

maveri_ck<3 said...

the hat adds such a comfortable, cool feeel to your outfit. Love it!

The Stylish Wanderer said...

You look fantastic. Love the trousers and the clutch,

Mimi said...

i like that dandy look a lot.

LEESH said...

hon, i really love the hat with that whole outfit. seriously it's fashion perfection to pair flouncy trousers with a nice small tank. it looks perfect on you. you're so gorgeous doll!
xx

Barbara said...

I agree with the others. The hat really makes the outfit come together.

Elin said...

That outfit was worth waiting for! I hope you get your computer problems solved soon I cant wait for your next outfit!

gliffyfille said...

idk why but you look different here! sucks about the heat, can't really wear different things when it's hot!

Le Fashion said...

Absolutely stunning!

Caro said...

sammie said...

Denise said...

RedHaybells said...

copperoranges said...

Jenny H. said...

Adiel said...

I've got to say that people who think that it's not okay to wear the same article of clothing more than once annoy me. Why spend time coveting, saving for and purchasing something to wear it only once. When I like something, I want to wear it all the time. I say you should do the same! Wear it every day if you want to!

Anonymous said...

I'm glad you wear the same things a lot. Instead of buying new things every day, you create/put together completely different outfits. Love it. Inspires me to do that with me limited amount of clotes ;)

thefashionmaven said...

"menswear inspired" done RIGHT! bravo!

lindsey baker said...

hello karla!

i just wanted to say, from a girl new to the fashion blogosphere, i have been particularly inspired by your blog, as well as your strong style. i think there's nothing at all wrong with modifying a silhouette over and over--in fact, i'd say it's the hallmark of style anyway.

so, i have added you to my blogroll. thanks, and keep on keeping on. if only i was as happening as you when i was 18. ;)

cheers.

Zest said...

Wow, i love the wide legged trousers, ive been looking for a pair like that forever.. i really hope soem come along soon, theyll be great for winter :)
love the blog by the way, want to swap links?

Anonymous said...

is that eyeliner? you still look pretty damn gorgeous :)

Neekoh said...

Wow, I didn't even think that was you at first!
Love the pants though. What an amazing addition to any wardrobe.

landis smithers said...

you're lookin very karen elson there, baby.

ramona west said...

the pants are amazing. you're lucky that you're petite because you can find pants that hit the ground while wearing heels. i have to make my own pants in order for them to fit like this. jealous.

Anonymous said...

i realized your secret to cuteness - sunglasses and bangs. without those, in combination with the raccoon eyes, ehh.. not so much.

i would love to see you with a center part with the bangs clipped to the side, i think symmetry works well with your style and it would make your outfits seem less repetitive.

Diabolina 3.1 said...

those pants are perfection. and ugh to that anonymous comment.

Anonymous said...

i think without the bangs and usual sunnies you look a little older and sort of like kiera knightley. you look much younger with bangs i believe.

S said...

Wow you look absolutely phenomenal in these trousers!

Anonymous said...

u look scary

Samantha Smikle said...

black lace bra and the look would be perfection!! love it still :)
xo,
S.

Tout de Noir said...

Romeika said...

kelsea said...

jessie said...

-h of candid cool said...

Bella said...

Great images... love the whole basic-chicness of this ensemble.

The Collector said...

Wow, this look makes you look really tall. It's a million times better than the rolled up loose pants look! It's simply supurb! A+

...love Maegan said...

my favorite look.

Ediot said...

these pic are amazing- but so are the clothes!

Leila said...

You look so beautiful ! American Marlene Dietrich !!

;-))))

Very my taste !

karla said...

liv/e in both senses: :) I did upgrade to more RAM and still my computer manages to crash and burn. So lame.

sasi: My fringe disappeared!

tracy: 1 ton of clothes is a lot of clothes :) Eres de Espana?

karina: Thanks! Checked the feature you did- thank you for that too!

dakotta77: Yep, first time :)

beayche: Ha! Not a very fierce woman, trust me. ;)

molly shameless: OOO james perse makes fabulous tanks and tees. Highly recommended. Although this h&m one is fab as well.

rora: No prob!

adiel: Dude, that’s what I’m saying. Wear it until it falls apart right?

lindsey baker: Aw, glad you find my blog inspiring. I’ll link you!

anon4:15: It’s more like overnight smudged make-up, haha.

samantha: The black lace bra created this bumpy boob look, so I just went for a regular black bra :)

Krystal said...

This menswear meets women look is one of my all time favorites, and it is So hard to pull off, and you did it flawlessly.

Krystal

TRES22 said...

Ok, I'm loving this ensemble!
You're going to have me going broke over here, Karla! You are inspiring me like never before! We have similiar tastes - we both like the simplicity of style. This look is KILLER.

And I can't believe you're so young! 1989???? That makes you what, 19, 20?? You seem so much more mature than that! Wow, in 1989, I was a freshman in high school (lol)!

Love this look! It is like professional meets beach wear! It is light and loose and sexy... I would defiantly wear that!

SEO Los Angeles said...

Its funny that you say that you can't wait for the fall winter to come... it is winter now in LA and I can't wait for spring, summer.

rv backup camera said...

You have this way of managing to look fashionable without trying. Best way of styling I say!
