Flashy thing

gold2-1.jpg picture by stylebook18

I went to the flea market about three weeks ago and spotted this oddly ostentatious jumpsuit that stirred up mixed feelings like "Ooo so sensual" and "Ooo so crazy in a strange way"- I wasn't so sure about it, so I ended up not buying it and instead purchased some sort of harness corset thingy (I really need to show you guys... it's intense). Anyway, I went back last week and saw it again and kind of felt like it was a sign from the heavens above, so I bought it after I received my boyfriend's nod of approval. Yes, it is completely out-there, but I kind of love it. 

Wearing vint jumpsuit, Bebe platform pumps, vintage chandelier earrings

Centine and Kaylene from Fashion Dialogue said...

For some reason it's giving me a Louis Vuitton S/S 2009 vibe...but that may or may not be purely to do with the gold lamé.

She's Dressing Up said...

Oooh... Out-there in a totally brilliant way!

FashionChips said...

Well if anyone could pull off a jumpsuit like this it's you Karla! Love it..

Erica said...

This reminds me of the marc jacobs collection! Very cool.

Tonia said...

I first thought it was a plain black jumpsuit worn with a sort of a capelet/scarf/shawl over it. A good idea for us who want to recreate the look, maybe? :)

This jumpsuit sure is crazy, but you always make things work no matter what. Gorgeous! (And I just bought these Bebe platforms and I can't believe you can walk in them on a regular basis, but I hope I will get there too!)

i love it... it has this hot 80s vibe without being OTT or scary, like a lot of the winter 09 stuff which references the 80s is.

and the shoes = HOTNESS. i wish i wasn't so tall so that i could get away with wearing heels during the day time :(
