Oh my god, that sweater looks so much like my purple one that I bought recently at a thriftstore, only mine is a whole lot shorter :) The same "pattern" and all.. The stripper boots looks really good with this toned down outfit, not trashy at all!

Stompface said...

It is ridiculous how beautiful you look here!

Fantastic outfit, and those stripper boots are love!

ahh i have a sweater just like that! but bright pink and much shorter. i think some old lady got really bored and knitted a good 500 of them and shipped them around the world or something

bare.peppermint.fashions said...

i love those shoes! they don't look stripperish at all. and i love the long sweater over tights. so cute.

caylee said...

possibly the best sweater ever.

is it the same one you wore with that zipper skirt a while back?

and there's nothing wrong with
being in the christmas spirit.!maybe you need to be more so in california where the weather isn't so "christmas-y", right?!?!

syd vicious said...

That sweater is so awesome and cozy looking!

Miranda said...

love the outfit :)
those shoes are killerrrrrr

tia said...

im excited,
i love christmas too.
and this outfit.

beck. said...

you look great! sometimes, i see a bit of hilary duff in you. im sorry, im sorry!

Divinity Avenue said...

You always have such great shoes.

Alicia/InstantVintage said...

Love how you styled this. The boots don't look stripper-y. LOL.

Sunset said...

Wow... those shoes work so well. It must take mad skills to tone down those shoes. I love love that sweaterrr. Where did you get it from?!

Barbara said...

your hair looks awesome here.

JEYQ said...

I DIE KARLA.

cute!

♥ fashion chalet said...

Every Nov. 1st I start with the music.. hahah love it :) --the day after Thanksgiving = lights up and our tree! & holiday movies day in and day out.

Shini said...

OHh perfect combo for those boots, those vintage sweater is amazing...

Anonymous said...

how high are your stripper boots? i'm 5'2" and i think i might need these boots...i'll probably actually be average height with them on. where did you get them btw???

ps-love your sweater

Anonymous said...

you probably don't care...but to clarify i'm not a stripper. i just wear insane heels everyday to make up for my lack of height. so to have these boots in my closet...would be ideal.

copperoranges said...

loooove that sweater!

Cindy said...

i think the only other time i've seen stripper heels look this cool is when worn by agathe from stylebytes. you really pull them off with this outfit. v. nice :)

Anonymous said...

where is that bag from? love it!

Anan said...

oh my gosh. This is so fabulous. Your earrings, you look happy and youthful! I love this look a lot. Definite success in making these shoes classy :]

stylemagnet said...

Lookin' good, girrrrl!

Anonymous said...

You are the only human being that can make a pair of stripper heels chic. Stay fabulous!

Ashleigh said...

you totally worked it to a T ...def not trashy ...people need to get stereotypes/associations out of their heads....fashion is about having fun/playing around/trying new things and feeling comfortable doing it....so good stuff!

ambiquitous said...

i love how you have interpreted those boots! you look great as usual! i am also SO ready for christmas...come mid-november you can't stop me from singing the whole catalogue of traditional tunes. xo

Q's Daydream said...

Super cute! :o)

Nicole said...

LOVE that Marc by Marc staples and studs--where did you find one that wasn't monstrously big?

Also, love the shoes--great way to mix things up.

The Stylish Wanderer said...

You look fantastic! and you make the stripped boots work, ladayyy




btw, make a vlog soon okay? I wanna hear your voice! (Also, weve never seen your dad! and what about your mom? and what about your brother? and what about your boyfriend?!?!?!) More deras all the time!

Hot Bot said...

Those boots are insane! I think I'd break my ankle.

Anonymous said...

i don't like the boots. I think they should've been like a half inch lower. They do scream stripper to me actually. I've always loved your outfits but these boots are definitely too much. And I never think anything is 'too much'.

Melynda said...

oh my god i love this outfit! your sweater looks so warm and comfy!!! and i want your boots.

Lo et Molly Shameless said...

i LOVE stripper shoes!

you look stunning. that outfit is killer.


those gotta be like 6", ya? are you towering over everyone?

esther said...

i am positively in love with that sweater. gaaahhh. it kills me that it's vintage, but of course i should have known...

you look fantastic!

Kiki said...

I looooooooveeee the sweater!!!

Anna Pope said...

The boots look really great with this outfit, they add just the right amount of edgy. And I love how amazing those big hoop earrings look with your short hair!

Ssu- said...

Cute outfit! Your boots are gorgeous!

mangopeachapple said...

Oh wow! So stunning.

QUI? said...

KARLA,
I have too much time on my hands but I read every post from beginning to present and I sound like a girl with no life right now but thats not the point. My point is I seriously adore you and your style! Your haircut is super fierce and those boots are very scandalous, in a way you could only pull off! :)& I thought your mom was your friend in the post you featured her in. Dead serious.

Anyways, I freaking love your blog, take care.
Natalie

katarina said...

LOVE! as tyra banks would say: you look fierce! FIERCEEEE!
i love the pieces that don't look so great and versitile out of context (i wasn't feeling those booties when you posted about them before) but totaly work when you combine them with more subtle pieces.
and, yes LOVE the hair

how hard are those boots to walk in? I'd break my neck. kudos.

Sunna said...

You look great. Congrats for making the boots work!

Anonymous said...

eek. They stripper style boots are a bit too much. To be totally honest, it's kinda embarrassing to wear them. They would have been cool not so stripper like. Love the tights and sweater dress though!

Moded'amour said...

OMG love how you look!! your sweater and shoes are PERFECT!!!

Anonymous said...

haha, me too! my family is so annoyed by the lights and christmas music i have all over the house.

No-more-stripper-shoes said...

I have loved every single outfit of yours until i saw this. Everything is fab but those shoes are too slutty :s
The only time to wear them is for the boyfriend.

Anonymous said...

lis said...

Mimi said...

I'm not in a christmas mood at all...

Fashion Tidbits said...

DON'T SWEAT IT said...

Mad props for strutting in those heels. I'd be falling all over the place.

Lydia said...

You look so comfy and lovely! I can't seem to find the perfect giant winter sweater, but I'll continue my search.

I knew you could make those shoes look amazing and untrashy. You've always got a great mix of styles =D

Amazing shoes !!!

Lena said...

You're sooo pretty! This outfit and these photos are some of my favorites from this blog. You glow Karla!

Anonymous said...

Not to sound like a hater, but I'm still saying no to these shoes. And I'll tell you why... It's not because they look like stripper boots, its because they look cheap. To pull off stripper boots they need to look like they are designer. You know?

vero in ny said...

girl, you should move your little fanny out here to NY. You would really give all these broads out here a run for their money!!! You know what would be a great look on you? some flashy, sequined bustiers (think Selena, circa 1993)with an oversized blazer. just thinking...

Vintage Tea said...

You look so pretty in the closey upish one of you

hanna said...

youre beautiful, karla!

Anonymous said...

you really remind of hilary duff! i think she has a gorgeous face + great bone structure so that's meant as a compliment!!

but obviously your style is a million times better than hers ;)

Anika said...

This is one of my fave outfits, so simple yet effortlessly chic! And I too have a thing for stripper-esque shoes. I love yours!!!

bakedbambi said...

Ow ow! Work those shoes, lady. :)

TheMinx said...

ahh those shoes are so fetishy fabulous! You styled them perfectly

CultureCynic said...

On a real life stripper this will be trashy...but on a stylista, this is BOMB!!!!! i mean this is so Ferosh, its sickning...!!!!

meowmeow. said...

LOVE your hair.

Anonymous said...

Fashionistas will say it's good often because it's out there. It might be cool for a photoshoot but the boots should not be worn in public if you're not a prostitute! They are fetish shoos. NEVER a good thing. But keep on posting more wonderful outfit of yours. Your are my fave even though I don't agree with you once in a while..
