Yell-o

Perhaps the reason for wearing this blazer once again is because A) I don't like wearing things only once and B) I can't get over the totally awesome "Prince & the Pauper" element the puffed sleeves possess. Now I just need to come up with other clever ways to wear it- maybe embellish it with some jeweled pins and what not... we'll see.

Oh and Momma and I both felt the urge to indulge and purchase these Bebe braided leather platforms because we both decided we couldn't leave the store without them. It's really quite lovely having a same-sized foot mother. 

Wearing a Bebe mustard platforms, F21 multi-colored knitted leggings, and H&M puffed sleeve blazer

Ok, I'm in total love with the color of those shoes! Beautiful! I don't recall seeing those in stores. Are they new? Gorgeous.
Love this look..the grey and mustard.
Work it! :)

Style Magnet; Sara said...

You look great, miss! And I saw your photos are up on AA's site. Love them all! That California Select line is stunning :)

M said...

you have a perfect face

if you have a boyfriend he's so god damn lucky

Maya said...

Love the color combo.

Noreen said...

I love mustard...and I'm not talking about the condiment. Great choice in color. So chic.

KK said...

Hmm... not a fan.

KEREN said...

Lovely outfit!
The blazer's puff sleeves are wicked, as are those Bebe pumps.
It all meshes very well together.
;)

Rikki Lane said...

Oh, the shoes! The color & braided details are incredible. The blazer is pretty fantastic also.

Stephanie said...

A) the first picture is beautiful- you have a gorgeous smile :-)

b) I looovvvee the mustard pumps!

C) You are completely (although entirely unknowingly) going to help me pull off my recent thrifted find: a YSL three-quarter blazer. It's an awkward length + it's boxy in the shoulders because it's an 80's style so it's going to be tricky to pull off. I have a few ideas, but you wear blazers of all fits sooo well that I know you'll inspire me somehow;-) Thank you!!

The Stylish Wanderer said...

I wanted that blazer so much, but they were out of it at H&M.

I love the shoes, but, Im not feeling the leggings.


Look at my yellow post a few days ago! so fun. we both match!

Brittni [Life . Imitating . Art] said...

Love the colors and those shoes are just wonderful! You look gorgeous in the pics! xx

Anonymous said...

your toes look like they're crying in pain. & if they aren't now, they will be in the future. i'm sure you, with your great style, could find some chic flats to throw into rotation.

Lains said...

You're shoes are stellar. And I love your hair.

belle.chantelle said...

I know this is going to sounds so awkward, but with the cold front freezing everyone's ass off in Toronto..the first thing I thought when I looked at your photos was "Wow..those tights look so warm!"

Ruby said...

Aha! My mum and I share shoes too!

your hair looks so great in these photos, did you recently cut more off the back? gorg.

Don't Be A Hero said...

totally bitchin, and I'm completely jealous of the whole momma with same size feet thing. I'd get so much more done :p

Swank Heights said...

It would look great if you embellished one side of the blazer like the Dries Van Noten blazers from the fall collection!

Karen Dunlop said...

Another home run!
How do you look so fab everyday. I'm in complete awe. Love the grey/yellow colour combo, always one I've loved, but personally am unable to pull it off because I'm far too pale, blah! :-( I am hankering after those braided mustard leather sandals though, they are beautiful.

caylee said...

this is a great color combination and i just love the whole outfit.

what's the point of buying a piece you love if you're only going to wear it once, right?!

deep_in_vogue said...

You read my mind. Recently I have been obsessed with grey, yellow and white I've even drawn pieces based on those colours. Hot shoes

Aysha's Rabbit Hole said...

the sleeve of the blazer is wonderful!! and i agree we shouldn't wear things once specially if they are full of beauty and chicness, they shouldn't stay cooped up in the closet.

the blazer could use different buttons! the buttons are a dead give-away as to how cheap + common it is!

Federica - Inside a bullet with butterfly wings said...

in my opinion you must use that lovely blazer!

Anonymous said...

karla, i stumbled upon your blog for the first time two days ago, and it it has quickly become one of my favourite blogs to read! i love your seemingly always changing hair (your pixie cut is my fav of course) and your gorgeous dancer's body! most importantly...your style is dope. <3

Compliment sandwich time!

Those shoes are lovely and they make the entire look. Yellow is such a good color for you.

That being said, the color scheme's a bit drab and those leggings-as-pants thing doesn't quite work.

But that blazer is mad puffy goodness. Worn with dark jeans (and those FAB heels) this look is raw as hell.

Hope the sandwich was yummy for you too! :D

beautiful shoes...

Cristina said...

I'll admit it, I just went all the way back to post one to see everything you've done. And you've really inspired me. I used to be a blogger, but I wanted instant success, I didn't want to wait around for people to find me. But after looking at your comments counts in the beginning and see like one, two or three comments it made me realize that, hey maybe I was on the right track. Granted, your outfits and closet in general were ten times more amazing than mine, but whose are actually better than yours. You are such an inspiration to me and I'm realizing it more and more with each day. I'll wear something and without even noticing it'll be very "Karla-esque." Okay, before I go bumbling on forever, plain and simple, you've got an amazing talent, and you are such an inspiration to so many girls.

I've been following this blog for a little under a year now and I just thought it was rude of me not to tell you how incredibly inspiring you are. The way you dress is wonderful, and I think more so is your attitude towards it.
You are fabulous and have an incredible body and hair and the like. Hope you aren't creeped out by this: I sound a bit like a stalker but I am just in admiration!

bisous, Gail

Ok, I have not yet ventured into the world of textured or colored leggings- so far basic black has been all I've been into...are leggings still in? Is it too late to get in on this trend? I passed a store on Roberston Blvd in BH the other day that I think ONLY sold leggings. Have you been there?
