Heavenly lighting

I am not quite sure why my heart palpitates every time I lay my eyes on something with overly ostentatious shoulder shapes. Perhaps it is not so wise to wear something like this while making photo copies at Kinko's- I got all kinds of odd stares... but I didn't really care because I felt like a prince (no not a princess) with my golden jacquard woven jacket. 

Oh and thank you Nadia from the jewelry site ice.com for these beautiful earrings, I LOVE THEM!

It's longer than I thought it was after looking at the first two pics - I'd probably prefer it shorter but you rock the length!

businessiscasual said...

Your hair looks amazing! And I'm loving the gold jacket with the black. Kinkos needs some glamour anyway.

meesh. said...

you always look tired, my love.


get some rest!

Rock It said...

omg i love how you've been using the sunlight. the shoes are pretty nice. Yup kinkos people definitely stare at uniqueness.

Wow, the heels are super high! Definitely cute though!

cheddah! said...

thefatandskinnyonfashion said...

elle said...

oh, how lovely that jacket is!
i too would stare at you, merely because you look so adorable!

Farrielle Design and Fashionista said...

Love it, I really look forward everyday to see what shoes and outfit you are wearing. You have the coolest shoes. Nice hair too.
I like the gold and the black and I really love the length of the jacket. Great sense of style girl.

Bonnie Klyde said...

I love that jacket the material is so beautiful. Who wouldn't want to feel like a prince? Love your blog.

AnorexicWrestler said...

I get crazy looks every day in class at Ringling. Then again its apparently more acceptable to walk around in pjs than heels.

le femme said...

Those heels are gorgeous. It's amazing how you always have heels on. Doesn't it get painful? I don't think I could do it...

Anonymous said...

karla! the jacket is amazing
but its really you.
you are so uniquely and yet classicly stunning.
you lips and eyes are drop-dead gorgeous,
your hair is so chic and adorable,
your nose and jawline are strong and yet delicate.

you are my exact defenition of beauty.

... well i'm sure that sounded slightly creepy, but its true :)

syd vicious said...

You look so regal in that jacket!

The Stylish Wanderer said...

aww you look gorgeous.

esther said...

haha, being inappropriately dressed can be so fun.
and let me specify that i mean 'inappropriate' in the most positive sense of the word. like heels at kinko's inappropriate, not boobs-falling-out-of-shirt inappropriate.

Rikki Lane said...

That is probably the most gorgeous jacket I have ever seen! You lucky lucky girl.

PUG and PIPS said...

What a handsome prince you are ;)

Lainey said...

the goldness of the jacket looks perfect against the sunlight. Beautiful shoes too! Bebe makes the greatest shoes!

Anonymous said...

Your legs look a little bit fat, but it´s normal. Your after pictures are better than this...

Highdee said...

you're such a gorgeous girl karla! looks like you just walked out of a photoshoot, so perfectly styled and tailored.

Annie said...

beautiful.

Katie said...

you should wear this jacket more often cause it works really good with your hair color and makes you so pretty

Emma said...

really digging on the jacket. I feel like the fabric would be used on furniture or curtains. But that's why it's so good! Everyone loves a bit of regal decadence :)

Denise L said...

you are so pretty karla!

you can never go wrong!

Mira Maulia said...

I think the jacket looks a bit dressy but it works nice with the whole outfit :)
incredibly nice, your royal highness :)

Christina said...

That's hilarious. (:

pwincess bebe said...

love your blazer, and your bebe shoes, awesome

Azû said...

Me encanta tu blog, siempre lo veo; hay veces que me pregunto, como transportar ese glamour a cancún, pero hace mucho calor y no me atrevo jaja.

Saludos!

Nita-Karoliina said...

Hadley said...

Who cares about odd stares when you look as fantastic as that?

fashionlauncher said...

Look like a prince (/princess) as often as you like, you're entitled to, and i love it! I've so been waiting for a post like this (blazers/jackets this length with leggings or short skirt is my fave look this spring) :)

Mira said...

Loving it, you really look like an elegant prince. And those shoes, love em.

camerafilmroll said...

I love that vintage jacket, so chic!

I love the colour of the jacket. My first thought of this post was: what an amazing marriage of the colours: white gold and gold light. Than I saw the title :) Regards.

bare.peppermint.fashions said...

i love this entire outfit! the gold with the black and the killer shoes....it's just love.

Jenny Cindy said...

I love the shoulders - wonderfully eccentric (in a very good way ^o^). I really like the entire ensemble and you rock for not caring about the stares!

PS: Those earring are stunning.

Bels said...

I would wear it everywhere!! reaally nicee!!!

chekka cuomova said...

Mia said...

hey, just to say that I follow the updates to your blog and it was curiosous when I found out that you have a tattoo that looks like one that I have, that says "come closer and see" on my back under the bra line. I love your choices and your haircut :-) are inspiring* Cheers from Portugal.

Ziling said...

You're so beautiful. I love your jacket, you always have the best finds <3

Ina said...

Ooo dear god, the jacket is stunning!!!

olga d said...

With those heels you are still a princess :) I like the gold-silver-simplicity.

Daddy's Girls said...

Mariane M. said...

jasmineLDN said...

the jacket is cool but i wouldnt wear it, its to costumey for me but thats just my opinion but then again the shoes are sick!

Montreal Fashion Minds said...

Love this outfit. The jacket is beautiful and unique, and the shoes are hot!

PS you have a great body! Not too skinny like, some. Nice and healthy! I admire that. ;)

God, AMAZING heels again! How much shoes do you have? :D You should picture them :D
I don't think the jacket is costumy. It's simply adorable, unusual and... i love it!

Fashbashsoundclash said...

Whilst looking at this post i immediately thought that you have a slight fascination for volumenous shoulders! But so you should becuase it looks great on you. Loving the killer heals, really like the gold buckle, v.different to all the lacing and tastles were being bugged by recently!

Karen D. said...

Those shoes are drop dead gorgeous, and the jacket is so decadent. Always love the combo of black and gold. And sod diamonds, emeralds are my favourite! Those earrings are beautiful. Looking simply fabulous as always karla. X

P.S. If I were you I'd be mildly freaked out by 'your admirer's comment. We know Karla has a fab bod 'Jordy', however this does not mean she'll be baring all for $5.75 a copy!

Carlita said...

I love your heals! Gorgeous photos :).

Much Love,

Beautiful as always. That jacket is beyond amazing.

Maya said...

Very Victorian, but sexy.
I have a one piece in black too. but its been in my drawer for like 3 weeks.

Jordy said...

@ Karen D. : What's wrong with posed nude for Playboy? I think it's a very great magz, maybe there are a lot of nude women in there, but they are showing some good, art & classy pictures of women. They are showing it in elegant way, not like any men's magz, such as Penthouse, Hustler, etc. Playboy has a very different taste.

Eventhough the magz being sold for only not more than $6.00, doesn't mean that she'll only earned $6, she will get, at least hundreds dollars for being nude, which means it'll good for her pocket money for buying some more fashionable stuffs.

Anyway Karla, don't be scared, I don't mean any harm to U. I'm just said that it would be shame, if U have that great body, but U can't use it for your good.

I'll still wait for ur decision, pretty. ;)

Love,

Your admirer,
Jordy

You really do look like a Prince! But in a nice, feminine-with-big-puffy-shoulders Prince way, like a Prince Ken doll I used to own that was dressed head-to-toe in neon pink. You're outfit's a bit nicer though, even if I loved that pink waistcoat... It's a very pretty jacket and I like how you didn't exploit the whole outfit and kept it simple. & those shoes are just a tad devine ;)

El Primo LiL J said...

Karla, please ignore the comments written by the inmature individual above. Si quiere ver una nalga, le tomo una foto de tu Tio J.
Love you Karla, keep doing what you do mija.

lisa said...

The jacket is beautiful, and I love how you paired it with black pieces. You're probably the only person I can think of who can rock the AA one piece so well!

Who What Wear said...

We love this jacket's bold shoulders.

Jordy, I think it may be time to up your meds, buddy. Or check in with your parole officer.

Karla, you look gorgeous as always. The lighting plus the gold jacket make you glow.

i will kill you for that jacket and those shoes ...well, I won't actually kill you ...and I'm not actually threatening violence ...I guess I could buy the shoes ...but that jacket is one of a kind! Fab!

Daniëlle said...

Beautiful pictures!

jem said...

i love how you always wear blazers. but i have a question for you. how do you pull off wearing blazers all the time? i cant seem to figure out how to wear them properly without exposing myself. does that make sense? thanks!

Kay said...

I really love the jacquard, it works very well with the silhouette as well.
I am liking the lighting in your last few posts (:

Isabel said...

That jacket is pretty darn heavenly.

Anonymous said...

HOLY MOLY that jacket is amazing! I want! I don't like that one piece suit though. That ruins the outfit for me. It's really not appealing. I do think the stares were because they liked what the saw. You gotta wear that jacket more often. BTW, it's time to wear you buckle boots karla! I wanna see.

Anonymous said...

Ok so ur shoes are like heaven....no seriously i think i have fallen in love with ur shoes...must get them....also the outfit is fabulous!! love the sleeve detail on the jacket!!!

Le Fashion said...

those platforms stole my heart....

so i need them.

really. bad.

Jordan said...

you are fearless! i love it.
do you work through the self-conscious feelings or do you not even get them at all?

i always need to give myself a lil pep talk before i go out in something i know will get lots of attention!

That jacket is completely divine. COMPLETELY divine. I think this kind of lighting is the prettiest.

I too adore ostentatious shoulders. On coats/blazers/dresses/tops. It makes it so much more special :)

I love the bebe platforms too...still waiting for the day bebe starts shipping to Australia. Bahhh.

Have a great one.

I want that jacket!!! Love everything about it, the shape, the fabric, the color...where do you do your vintage shopping?? If you say Crossroads I'll scream! Lol All my friends find gold there and all I find are things I like that aren't in my size/
