Polaroids

I've always had a slight obsession with polaroid cameras, so I was super excited when I stumbled upon my dad's 600 series polaroid camera last night. I went to Target to pick up some film and snapped some random photos in my bedroom... pol5.jpg picture by stylebook18

katarina said...

cute! and dont be ashamed of loving a.h., i think that every woman wants to be like her (including me).
and i cant even imagine what it was like in usa on election day, here in croatia we were very excited to!
how old do you have to be to vote in usa? 18 or 21?

kisses

ZORI said...

What a great idea to present Polaroid pictures!

JEYQ said...

ha isn't photography funny though? still had to use a digi to take a picture of a picture. haha.

cześć, jestem raczej pa. said...

amazing, i always wanted to have polaroid:((

shoebox said...

nice polaroids :)

karla said...

anon11:58: Aw lol!

katarina: You have to be 18 to vote.

jeyq: So true. Digitals are good though too. I just love polaroid cameras. Ugh, I'm contradicting myself- too tired to think anyway.

♥ Chloe said...

Gorgeous!

diamondsinchampagne said...

I want a polaroid camera too, I totally agree how they are more raw and real.
I love the crispness of digital but there is something special about polaroid

Mode Junkie said...

i love polaroid cams too! but here in germany, 10 photos = 20 euros! crazy. but like you said, it's worth it. i had my polaroid cam with me while giving birth.

Farren said...

I want to find an old polaroid camera lying around. =/ Hehe... The pictures came out beautifully though! And I am definitely happy with the outcome of the election! =)

Anonymous said...

It is a great post. Very beautiful. I love polaroids, I always wanted to have polaroids of me and people I love that I would pin on the wall everywhere at home...
Besides I really love your leopard silk scarf...

amanda said...

great post, you take good polaroids! (there is a skill to it)

thanks for the lovely comment & reply to my question, very helpful!

& audrey = love, of course. any girl that doesn't love or at least appreciate her can't really call herself a fashionista, in my opinion!

leflassh. said...

audrey + polaroids = LOVE>

hey, so when are u going to put your halloween pictures, or have i totally missed them out?

Disco Nap London said...

I love a good Polaroid and I want them to start making the film again, so it isn't so darned pricey. Agreed that it is money well spent.

Also, I love the 'photos of photos' idea on the blog - works well.

Jenn said...

I have always loved polaroids also! They have an awesome vibe when you look at them! Great photos! Love the first one with the leopard print scarf!
I was ecstatic about the outcome of the election! What an awesome time to be alive and young!

Linda said...

There's something amazing about Polaroid. I'm surprised you found film since it has been completely discontinued now. :( One of my friends is obsessed with Polaroids and is documenting the "last days". haha

I think you'd dig it. :)

Dropsofglamour said...

I'm still jealous of your hair - it's super cute! I'm not American but i'm overjoyed at the results of the election -)

Billie Jean said...

the polaroid pictures definitely work! looks so cool!
I always wanted a polaroidcamera too bad that they are not in production anymore..
and I love the audrey hepburn painting!

Fashion Therapist said...

I love the look of polaroids...there's something so je ne sais quoi about them, but they're great!

Domonique said...

Love the pics, now if onlyI could get a hold of a little poloroid of my own, I'm pretty sure they've made it like impossible to get film though unless I get some on ebay!

I have the A.H book....... love

Gina said...

i love your style, you always brighten my morning :). where can i find one of those awesome hand shaped ring holder thingys i saw on your dresser??? i bet you got it at a thrift store and im out of luck but it's worth asking about <3

C* said...

Lovely pumps!

Fashion Tidbits said...

polaroids are definitely sexy

Little Lj said...

Me and my friends love polaroids! Be careful not to waste any film though, they've stopped making it!

Looks like you're doing fine so far!

Melisssa said...

I know it's not the same as an actual hard copy type of polaroid, but I found this recently, and it's actually pretty cool...

www.poladroid.net

You just drag whichever digital image you have onto the pogram, and it makes it look like an actual polaroid photo. They even do the coloring correctly. Plus, you still get to "shake it."

So, when the world's last polaroid film is gone, this will be all we have left :(

Oh, and I just love your blog, by the way!

oL said...

Me flipan las fotos Polaroid! tengo una cámara pero es muy dificil encontrar carretes! es muy antigua! tus fotos son preciosas y tu estás genial como siempre!

A.H... pura elegancia y sotisficación hasta con zapatito plano!

un beso karla!

sueper said...

I'm totally a polaroid fan

Olviya said...

i like the way of showing images with polaroids) looks arty!

Patricia said...

very very nice :)
i'm happy cuz of obama, even i'm not from usa. but he rocks! :)

TEXTSTYLES said...

polaroids won't be around for much longer, few months ago they announced they will no longer make the film, so once the last pack is sold, that's it folks!

p.s. and even from Toronto, the election made me happy

Amy (Shades-of-Black) said...

That jumper looks so great, and LOVE the polaroids!

j@modishchick said...

love the polaroids! you look lovely, as always :)

copperoranges said...

before i left for college i took about 60 polaroids of all of my friends and family. the photos covered my walls! it's so sad they're no longer making them, but i hear the chemicals involved are very dangerous to the environment?

at least now we have software that can distort digital photos and make them look like polaroids.

Neekoh said...

That last picture (especially) looks like it belongs in some edgy fashion magazine.
You're gorgeous and I love reading your blog. Wish you'd update more to keep me satisfied :P

Hot Bot said...

It's a pretty amazing time to be in America right now :)

Krystal said...

i completely agree about the Polaroids..and my god, 18 dollars!! thats ridiculous, they need to bring them back...and maybe cheaper :)

you look stunning in all of them...the favorite is you and audrey <3

Emily Rose~Loves Cheerios said...

Oh I wish I had a polaroid camera, the photos you took look so incredibly beautiful and raw...

Chloe's Chic Conception said...

Aw I love polaroids and I love how you've done this post! Such a new and interesting way :)

Passion4fashion said...

You look gorgeous as usual. In regarding to the election result, some are happy and some are disappointed. I am very disappointed myself, but I can only hope for the best and be prepare for worsen economy which I need to conserve cash and shopping freeze for little while.

ohlilly said...

10 photos = 18$
cheaper than in France :'(
10 photos = 20€ that's to say
more 24$ !!
your polaroids are so great.
u're really cute.
u're my daily dose of Fashion.

So said...

I love the photos series, it really looks good.

Unfortunately, Polaroid has stopped producing both old school instant camera and film. Apparently the film is somehow bad for the environment (and becoming obsolete). Polaroid did release a new option called Polaroid PoGo which is a digital printer (about the size of your hand) that instantly prints from cameras and cell phones.

So enjoy your polaroids while you can, everyone...they're a dying breed! No more "shake it like a polaroid picture." Our children will never understand the genius of OutKast.

ps. great post!

...love Maegan said...

you should really stock up on film if you're loving the polaroid ...they only have so many and once they are gone, they are gone forever.

cute post.

J'Adore Fashion said...

love the polaroids, love audrey too :)

Kira Fashion said...

Your dress is fantastic below and also those great shots!

a kiss girl!

Carla said...

I love the polaroids! I am a huge fan of Audrey too! She was ever so classy :)

I realize that if people read my comment, most are going to hate me if I say this but.... I am not that happy with the outcome of the election. When I ask people why they would vote for Obama, no one could give me an answer. Isn't that kind of terrible?

By the way, love your blog! AND, you have a great sense of style :)


Charlotte H.

P.S. I see that you've been talking about cutting your hair even shorter. Well, I think you should definitely go for it! Im sure you would pull off short hair beautifully.

Leanne said...

Oh I love polaroids, they have such a good feeling to them that digital photo's don't. Though I do love the crispness and clarity of digital photo's aswell.
I am in the process of finding myself a polaroid camera on ebay.

Love the scarf in the first photo!

kara - allthingsordinary said...

simi valley? hello from la!

sometimes i dream about a world where polaroid film was a super cheap form of development. I guess I should be thankful it's still produced!

♥ fashion chalet said...

Very European Vogue meets one hundred percent inspirational in the likes of Valentine Fillol Cordier, Karla! <3

Gabby said...

It's so sad that they are discontinuing Polaroid Film! Oh, and to the previous commenter (carla)--you are talking to the wrong people, then. I definitely know why I voted for Obama, but I'm not going to argue politics on someone else's blog. I highly doubt that McCain was without uneducated supporters as well.

You look beautiful as usual, Karla!

m.elizabeth said...

grrrreat pictures. very cool feel to all of them.

ps. you've been tagged! check out my blog to see what I hit you with. Just cause your blog is awesome :) ♥

Jennifer said...

Which A. Hepburn book do you prefer ? I wanna try to read one but there are too many choices.

You always look so cute by the way.

AusAnna said...

oh these pictures are great :) Im so in love with Polaroids too. you cant get good polaroid cameras anywhere over here.
love your blog :)

Rebecca said...

I have a bit of an Audrey obsession too. Perfection personified. I have those books too! And two pictures on my wall! lol But they're smaller and of her in Two For the Road and Breakfast at Tiffanys. Cute polaroids btw! I agree digital cameras are great but theres something about polaroids and cameras with actual film.

lilliebe said...

I adore polariods. It's a shame they're so expensive. And YAY Obama!

Penny Lane said...

Do you also own the book The Audrey Hepburn Treasures? It's a little bit expensive, but, oh, Audrey is worth it!
Do you know the film Funny Face?

c h a n t e l l e said...

hey karla,
i'm obsessed with audrey too. but i'm dying to redo my room. and this is so random, but do you have any suggestions or ideas of places to get things? i really need help on a comforter :) thank you. amazing style by the way!

Styleseeking Zurich said...

Hi Karla! Love the polaroids! a friend of mine recently found a polaroid camera as well but in Switzerland the film roll costs even 5times more, isn't that ridiculous? but we're going to try it out anyway... :)

karla said...

So sad that they won’t be making polaroid film anymore!

anon2:52: Didn’t end up posting them :( sorry!

linda: Checked it out, pretty awesomeeee

gina: My mom actually got it for me at TJ Maxx!

melissssa: Ooo didn’t know that excited so thank you- must invest in that polaroid-making device soon.

copperoranges: What?! Polaroids are dangerous to the environment?

neekoh: Trying to update more frequently now!

anon11:11: “ No more shake it like a polaroid picture. Our children will never understand the brilliance of OutKast.” Hahahaha (I giggled)

kara-allthingsordinary: simi valley vs. la--- it’s like lame vs. cool

jennifer: I love the A.H. book called “Audrey Style” by Pamela Keogh.

penny lane: No I don’t own that book- I have to find it nowww! And yes, I’ve seen “Funny Face” along with the other A.H films ;)

daphne: Oh thanks for the link!

newyorkecherie: They’re from Bebe, ha

styleseeking zurich: Well I suppose if you use the film wisely and you love taking polaroid pictures then the price of the film doesn’t really matter, right? ;)

madeline said...

It's funny, all these people yearning for Polaroids...it's not exactly hard to find them, although the film is a different story! Good news though: I heard another company, possibly Fuji, is going to start selling their own Polaroid film. No word on whether it will be compatible with standard 600-using Polaroids, but that would definitely be the most profitable for them, right?
But it is funny that all these commenting bloggers are so very impressed by something as simple as a Polaroid.

alexandra said...

i love poloriods.
and audrey.
this is all just great!
