my parents bought me a sewing machine for my 16th birthday and then my mom broke it soon after sewing curtains... sighs. Your post is making me contemplating picking up sewing again. IN OTHER WORDS, hot jacket!

I love how you look in short hair, it suits you. And I remembered you mentioning about using LookBook.nu a while back, why have you stopped posting there? would love to see more of your outfits.

I am lusting over that cardigan but I'm lusting more over the fact that you designed it yourself! You should consider a career in fashion design if you haven't already. I would wear every single item.

MongoosePouco said...

lovely, I always add new buttons to my items. The velvet really works on you but i hate the feel of it to the touch haha

karla said...

Thank you guys for all the sweet comments about my new and improved (haha) hair, you guys are freakin awesome, no joke.

mimi: No it’s not shorter, perhaps the lighting makes it look a bit shorter no?

turquoisepassion: I totally understand what breaking a sewing machine feels like- I felt like a complete loser. Not that your mom is a loser because clearly she is an expert sewer if she was sewing curtains! :)

anon5:40: Aw thanks. I think change is totally good, especially because I always get tired of the same thing.

clareassiral: No haha I wish! I go to a FIDM (fashion design school) and my grandma also helped me out.

visionary dreamer: No problem!

youngest indie,vix: I was kind of inspired by her to chop it off. Thank you Kate L.

fashion is poison: They’re fabulous, love mine! Let’s go shoe-hunting soon!

lisa: Aw thank you, so sweet.

anon2:02: I’ll try posting there more often now :)

anon2:15: ;)

gala: Gracias Galaaa!

fashionistadiary: No, they just chopped off all of the dark hair I had!

wanxin: Cut it!

yaelatner: It took me quite some time to master these impressive sewing skills you speak of. Hopefully it takes you less time to master it than it did me!

catherine: So freeing, right?

chauss: Checked it out and it’s fabulous, really it is.

rissa: I totally gave up trying to grow it long but that’s just because I grew impatient. I say you chop it off, it’s such a good feeling!

Jasmina said...
