New Fringe Things

First of all, I want to apologize for neglecting the blog for the past few days. Life has been super chaotic and I'm still trying to get back into the flow of things. I recently discovered this fabulous handbag designer, Jenny Yuen. I'm a fan of classic black bags, but I couldn't resist purchasing this bag in sapphire blue. The blue is even lovelier in real life and I'm just so in love with it. This bag surprisingly goes with almost everything. (There is a 20% coupon code: TRAVERSE in case you guys are interested in purchasing anything from the site).

Wearing vintage beige fringe pants, H&M tank, Steve Madden gray strappy pumps, Jenny Yuen sherlock bag, and vintage sunglasses

I can honestly say that these pants are INSANELY amazing. I'm sure they get looks as you walk by.
as for the hot dog-more brilliance. hahahah

Mimi said...

No way you're going to be a hot dog! Are you really???

Fashion Babbler said...

Oh my gosh, those pants are ridiculously amazing!

Judy said...

I have to disagree and say the pants look horrible. I didn't expect this from you as you look great almost always! I know you like to experiment and it usually comes out great but this one has gone bad. You look amazing from the waist up though. GREAT bag.

Chessie said...

Ah. The pants. Fabulous much? And as for the hot dog, I applaud!

lovelola said...

M said...

Pants are interesting at most, but if anyone can pull them off it's definitely you Karla!

Post hot dog and hamburger photos yes? Pretty please:):)

beccajanie said...

Those pants are unreal! You wear them well.

As for the hotdog and hamburger costumes? Hilariously awesome.

Mer said...

Pants=love.
Costume=love.
Way to go.

Unwise Pedestrian said...

The hotdog is amazing! I'm not quite sold on the pants, but I love that you took the risk! It's what makes you a style icon :)

Petra said...

You look amazing! Love the colours your wearing here, they are all so beautiful together.

Hah a hotdog, that's fantastic! I was a pumkin once... just one word of advice, make sure your costume isn't so wide you can't fit through doorways. I speek from experience :)

Teresa said...

those are so beautiful! it'd be hard for me to resist wiggling while I walked...such a great find!

Little Miss Dress Up said...

wow! you're really able to pull off those pants!

Ashlyn said...

your hair is absolutely flawless.

The Stylish Wanderer said...

you look great, I cant believe they are vintage!

beckka said...

i really like your style but those pants are crazy! they are weird! did you wear them out to some place? did you get strange looks? i would love to know. aside from that you look beautiful as always :)

carla said...

Those pants are amazing - I'd be shimming all over the place in those!

saray said...

Don't Be A Hero said...

I honestly do not understand it, you actually pull off those pants

HOW DOES THAT WORK?

I'm so close-minded, I never thought this would happen :P You look fantastic

lalatragickk said...

&BOY are you daring to wear those! i'd never have the guts to do that! good for you!

L O V E the bag, btw.

Gina. said...

Hee, the hotdog is so so so cute!

KATLIN said...

Dude, shut up! Those pants are the most amazing thing I've ever seen in my life! You rock them so well!

The Spelunkers said...

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!
that is me screaming and going to live in a cave because I cannot compete and will never find a pair of pants like those.
strangely enough, they make me think of flappers which make me think of the 20's which make me think of my halloween costume which make me think of you being a hot dog. hmm.
-- the lightning

Sisi et JoJo said...

J: Gosh....why don't you wear the pants and go as a tall lampshade for Halloween?
S: But we love (nearly) everything else you wear! Say something nice Jo.
J:
S: Jo likes your hair.

Mattie said...

i so love the new hair. i know i already said it before but it just looks so cool

JEYQ said...

holy fashion.
i love you.

diamondsinchampagne said...

I have never seen pants like these, wow they are awesome.

The steve madden pumps are very cute!

gliffyfille said...

wow, llama and pinata immediately came to mind. i don't know why. you totally pull it off though!

Snowshoe said...

can i just say... holy hell. this is the best thing since pants. cause it's pants that are better than pants. you are what you are because you embrace things like this. hearts and stars. xoxo

issa said...

wow those are some crazy pants!! but i totally love your shoes..

and seriously a hotdog and hamburger! i can't wait to see those photos!! and yay to breaking the trend that halloween costumes have to be slutastic.. not that there's anything wrong with that :)

♥ Marta ♥ said...

Wicked pants ... and the bag is so pretty, I think I might get one from this site :)

Jennifer said...

Those pants are bold. You're probably the only person who can actually pull those off. I'd probably look like some crazy lamp shade. Hm... Perhaps I've found MY Halloween costume. Ha!

tali said...

when its warm outside again, you could cut those into a really cute mini skirt or sew it into a long skirt.

oohh the possibilites, they're amazing as they are too. :)

Anonymous said...

The pants are quite interesting. Somehow you pull them off well. I wonder how they look from the back, not trying to be creepy or anything.

karina said...

Karla, I adore your blog, you are beautiful, I had a similar killer hot body like yours at your age but I was not feel beautiful because I was not tall neither skinny, when I see my old photos I think -Damm I was stunning!!!
You are a great example of beautiful sexy body and style,but as much as I adore you I heat those pants!!!
Big hug!

micaela said...

i love your outfits. they seem so effortless put together and it looks awesome. those pants are so cute and not much people can pull it off like you do (:

Lisa said...

karla beautiful.

ah love it all.
but those glasses. they are captivating.

oh my. your costume is too cute for words.
so sad we don't have halloween here.

have a beautiful sunday.
x.

SHOEBOX said...

I´m not so sold on the pants...
But everything else is great!

And your halloween costume is so cool. Halloween seems like so much fun! We don´t have the same tradition in Europe, but it´s getting more and more influential from US though.

melly said...

The pants are definitely interesting! Hmm, makes me want to 'strum' my fingers thru it.

I LOVE the handbag tho, very mucho.

fashionlauncher said...

Yay to you for taking fashion to the next level and helping us think out of the box.. :) Your pants looks quite sophisticated! hugs ;)

Aka said...

i like the idea of the fringe pants but to be honest they're just not too flattering. if you could somehow convert them into a skirt that would be awesome.

Tracy said...

completely in love with the sunglasses!!!

Anonymous said...

The pants don't flatter your legs.

Anonymous said...

I am sorry, Karla, but these pants didn't look well on you. To be honest, they looked like an old lamp shade. Put from the waist and up; perfection. Really like your new hair cut and the nice bag.
But tell me, did you pay spend almost 550 dollars on it?

Siska said...

your pants are too funny :D love it!

Funky-FiFi said...

Those pants are so funny!!

Valencia Lia said...

Marina said...

Very funny suit for Halloween!!!!And I love your trousers and shoes.You are very brave that wearing this pants. Applause!

ModeJunkie said...

these pants are very weird in a very gooood way! :) the bag is very nice. i will check the site. thanks for the link.
i wanna be a hotdog too. too bad, halloween is not that big a deal here in germany!

Ladybird said...

There are not many people who can carry off these pants, but you just look gorgeous!

Sophie said...

Terrible pants, but I like fringes and the colour, and the pants look at least quite nice on you, beautiful colour and beautiful combination (with white and the bag). I have to repeat (or say): I LOVE YOUR HAIR, so much better.

Sophie said...

PS: Can you really read and answer all the comments? You get sooo many!

w0witsalana said...

i think those pants are amazing, and you really look good in them. i know if i ever acquired such a brilliant piece i wouldn't have the guts to wear it, but you do and i think that's what makes them so great :)

Dana (MODAna) said...

really adorable costume choice!
not sold on the pants but way to go

Shirin said...

I can't decide if I think they are terribly ugly or terribly brilliant... Hm. But sure, they are unique.

Denise said...

that hot dog costume is hilarious! :D
i went to get my heir cut like 3 days ago and it is as short as yours now but i'm pretty unhappy with the new hair cut because it only looks rediciulous on me.
i whish i where you. :/

Miss V said...

Jessica said...

The pants are really great! And you're right-kind of similar to Anna's feathered skirt. I love how you pair the grey and blue with the cream hue :D

Taghrid said...

ryan manning said...

ultimately life-affirming

Hot Bot said...

Your hair is amazing in these photos. And you kind of look like Hillary Duff in the last one, I mean that in a good way of course :)

Anonymous said...

:/

Soraya and Elesha said...

The pants are to die for!!! : D

Sunset said...

Girl, you're the only one that can work that outfit. It all seems to clash in a good way. Love you.

oh my goodness, i cannot believe how excited everyone is about the pants! honestly they don't look good.

Harlen said...

I'm really digging this look...it's an interesting take on the whole flapper/tiers look that is coming back right now.

I saw this skirt and thought of you:

The bag is gorgeous on you too! I'm glad that it's not black!

Kat said...

the pants are incredible!

Katie said...

The bag and shoes = HOT STUFF.

You would never see anything like that in my town, it would be headline news.

You look amazing!

Anonymous said...

Okay, I'll be honest, those pants look HORRIBLE. This is the ugliest outfit I've seen on fashion blogs. Sooo, before any fanboys/fangirls start bashin, here's what I say to defend myself: I love your homepage, I check it out on a daily basis, your style really inspires me and you're beautiful BUT these pants are a No-Go for me. If you're fine with it, okayyyy but you know what this reminds me of? There are a lot of stars with a great sense of fashion and sometimes they allow themselves some 'faux-pas' and all the blogs laugh about them and think WTF and their outfits get published at fugly.com .. so my thesis is, maybe you're going the same direction! But anywho, long story short: Don't like the pants. But it's you who's wearing them, have a nice day :)

deryik said...

i wonder how they look in motion. any pics?

Angelina said...

I've been reading your blog for awhile now and I like your style. Any way, the pants are okay. They aren't very flattering and I would hope you wouldn't incorporate them into a daily wardrobe. The statement is a-okay, though!

Zu said...

i love fringe!

Anonymous said...

I love you but not those pants. In all honesty they are a huge mistake and everyone seems to be getting excited over them, its probably because they are oh-so "out there", we are all know the type. You have more style then all of these idiots and I know you can do better then this.

But I still look to you as an icon, as long as you burn those pair of camel-lama fringy lamp monstrosity.

Deborah said...

Sorry, but I really really don't like the pants :( Maybe if they were in a darker shade they'd be more flattering?? I absolutely love all your outfits but this one...the pants make me go :'( :'(

kristin said...

those pants are amazing!

MJ said...

I so appreciate you wear whatever you want. That's one of the reasons you inspire me! You are probably my fave fashion blogger and I really love 99% of what you wear. Sometimes I think...well.. don't like it that much but she pulls it off. These pant however, I immediately though, eeew! just to say it bluntly. I'm completely honest when I say this is the first bad move I've seen of you! WOuld be cool as a skirt though.

Anonymous said...

i love the outfit and those vintage sunglasses. they match perfect!

You have an amazing style and I love most of your outfits, but those pants were just aweful!

I am sooo loving this look!! I can't believe how cute they are, who knew?!?!?!

put-o-sunshine! said...

gosh karla! your pants equals to AMAZING.
i also admire your ankle boots.

Harlen said...

I find it hilarious that so many people say that they think the pants are "hideous" and "would never wear them." That's great, but that's what personal style is about. If everyone loved everything that other people wore, and wore all the same stuff, it would be a pretty boring world.

I think everyone comes to this blog for inspiration. You don't come here to see someone who dresses *just* like you.

lotpak said...

OMG YOUR PANTS ARE DEE-VINE!!!

i see you finally got your ray ban clubmasters. pray tell, where did you find yours?

this outfit is like a breath of fresh air. such sumptuous summery goodness.

love from the gold coast!

ps: that bag was made in an INGENIOUS shade of blue.

Hahaha I enjoyed reading the mixed feelings about the fringe pants, so awesome.

Mimi: A hot dog indeed.

beckka: Yea ha, I did get some pretty awkward stares but who really cares right? :)

anon5:17: Ha! I think I get a lot of fashion inspiration from the 80s :)

anon6:24: Aw thanks you for your super sweet comment! I actually donate money to my church, The Dream Center.

harlen: Checked it out! I love the skirtt!

deriyk: No, sadly I forgot to take “in motion” pictures.

anon4:27: Aw your comment made me smile for some reason :)

deborah: Yea a darker color would have looked a little less “out-there”. I wish I could find some black fringe pants.

anon8:17: Hahahah they kind of do look like llama pants! (I really did giggle) ;)

lotpak: I got them at the flea market, but sadly they’re not THE original ray-bans :(
