Dark Day

I wore this to buy notebooks and photo frames at Target. It was a little chilly so I wore my trusty motorcycle jacket with an American Apparel leotard, Forever 21 skirt, and Report shoes.

wow, that skirt and jacket look amazing on you.
I know what you mean about being "over dressed" - I love dressing up even for the smallest reason!

Q's Daydream said...

Fabulous! I love F21! There's also nothing better then dressing up just to go do errands! :o)

fashionlauncher said...

Thanks for the comment:) I've been great! I will finish my thesis then find a job in the US next fall - I'm so excited.
How's school n everything?
Yea, my trench is classical, and of great material, but wish i had an oversized one right now ;)

Sabrina said...

I'm behind on my blogging these days and finally caught up with yours... I just want to say that what you said in an earlier post about happy with your weight made me soooo happy... it's about time for someone to stand up for themselves. It's honestly one of the most pathetic things I've ever heard that people felt the need to criticize your perfectly healthy if anything petite frame... it just proves how pathetic our society is coming.

ps. I couldn't be more in love with your black Louboutin ankle boots with the zipper. amaaaazing

sarah said...

love your leather jacket!

Anonymous said...

Electro Geisha said...

hebrew is very interesting, but hard. i studied some hebrew during college.. huh! a bit of a bumpy road...

amanda said...

looove this outfit, that skirt is gorgeous!

i was wondering if you could help me out with a quick question- i was just wanting to know how true to size the baker's triple strap shoes are? i take a 5.5 in the nine west gladiator wedges, so was just wondering if it would be the same for the baker's?

sorry to be a pain, it's just that i can't really return them if they don't fit as i'm in australia, but thanks so much!

Kess said...

i love your skirt :)
also, i live in israel so i was completely surprised to see hebrew. how exciting! i don't recognize the magazine it's from. did you write the piece yourself and had it translated? i totally agree with what it says btw, if you pair something overdressy with casual clothes everything balances out.
congratz!

julia hart said...

oh karla you always dress soo nice. I just made my own blog www.ohh-darling.blogspot.com and I linked you because you are definitely one of my favourite bloggers so maybie you could check out mine aswell.

Juliet said...

Congrats for the feature, that's so cool!

katarina said...

wow, it seems like the whole world went karla-crazy XD

katarina said...

btw, i think that you should go with anja rubik or edie sedgwick hair. i have a hairstyle like that and its great, very easy to manage and perfect for straight and thick hair like yours.

AU PAYS DE CANDY said...

For Love not Money said...

Loving the girlie-tuff take....very Lily Allen.

Your hair is looking fantastic! I know you've previously blogged about wanting to go shorter but I personally think you should avoid scissors at all costs!

Love the blog - also find it hilariously funny/disturbing that anyone could suggest you are fat/curvy/whatever - You look fit and healthy to me and thats all that counts really.....xFLNM

C* said...

I love your skirt!
If I meet you, I would go with you to shop heels because I really love all your shoes!

xoxo

Zu said...

i cant get over how perfect that jacket is.

Anonymous said...

hey ive only just recently started reading your blog, as recently as just then haha. just one thing, i love it i really do and i am absolutely jealous of your wardrobe, but could you sometimes put a few more pictures up, of different angles, like the last couple. because in some of your earlier blogs theres only one picture and i cant get an idea of the whole outfit ie; blazer dress photo theres only one of your back.


thanks so much.
you are officially on my tabs so i will read every day =]

karla said...

fashionlauncher: Wooo hoo! Where will you be living? School is good, it keeps me way busy which is the reason for the lackluster posting lately.

the stylish wanderer: No it’s not my house, it’s an area close to wear I live. So prettyyy.

sabrina: Thank you for the sweet words!

lalatragickk: All I know is “merci” so you’re really not that bad ha.

anon10:03: Do you have a scar on your right knee too?? .. Because that would be trippy if you did :)

dana (modana): It does?! I wouldn’t know because I don’t speak the language, I just admire it.

jeyq: It’s sort of a blue-ish purple-ish. Kinda.

anon4:13: Pics/video of my closet will come soon. I’d like to get my closet totally remodeled soon so I’ll definitely do a closet post whenever it’s ready.

electro geisha: It’s so cool that you studied Hebrew. When I was like twelve, I wanted to go to an Israeli school so that I could learn the language, but sadly I never ended up going.

amanda: I’ll answer your question on your blog!

valentina, anon6:54: Thanks, I’ll check it out!

kess: To be honest, I am not sure what the piece says about me or if it’s something I wrote and they just translated it.

katarina: Haha, I took a picture of Anja when I went to chop my hair off :)

elena pov: No that’s really what the background looks like, I just added a bit of contrast to the picture but that’s it. This little road is close to wear I live- it’s a really melancholy place. And yes, some girls totally over-accessorize! But if that’s what makes them happy, then why not right?

sailesina: Gracias por el link! Te voy ha agregar a mi lista de blogs tambien :)

dara katrina: Indeed I was, three years ago.

margaret: Soooo much fun! I was super scared though and my precious boyfriend kept laughing when they’d follow me with the chainsaw. Ha

alexandra: I got it like two months ago, pretty recent I’d say.

anon11:55: Glad you liked what you saw! I’ll try and post more than one picture!

saray said...
