Karla, why do you insist on dressing like you're in your mid 30s? You're a lovely girl. You should dress more for your age.

conan said...

love your top, your whole look. great scenery too. reminds me of the 40's. dang f21 has such great skirts every now and then.

trisha said...

karla, i'm in love with you. your style is so flawless.

and hey anomynous, would a woman in her 30s wear a skirt like that? i sure hope not. just because she dresses way classier than people her age doesn't mean it's too mature...

Anonymous said...

To Anonymous: Baby, I don't know any 30 year olds who dress like this.

Karla, you always throw together the coolest outfits. Nice legs!

Wendy said...

Phew, I'm kind of early today it seems :)
I disgree with Anonymous #1..a young can adopt a matured style but ppl who are older adopting younger styles r a definite faux pas. And I definitely agree with anon #2.. this doesnt look 30's-ish at all :) this is what i call classic chic! great combo Karla!

I wish I had the balls to pull off a skirt that short with heels. Undoubtedly, my ass would be showing. LOL.

You look fantastic, chica!

chicfaced said...

soooo i def also ordered this skirt and sent it back as soon as i got it - after, of course, i stopped laughing at myself in the mirror - somehow, though, like with everything else, you are pulling it off! go ahead, girl.

tara said...

Karla, you are sooooooo hot.

Anonymous said...

your thighs are way too big for you to be wearing these short skirts...also, how do you know reveal everything when your skirts are this short?

If you're ever walking down the street and a random girl just hugs you, don't panic, it's me... I LOVE YOU! This outfit is gorg!!! I like everything about it.

Anita said...

That is indeed one short skirt, but you are working it, as always Karla. However, I do think the head area is too much to look at. It would have been nice to see the hat and the earrings, or the hat and the sunnies, or the sunnies and the earrings...definitely not all three at once.

Still, love that blouse. I think it's the same you wore in a post w/ your longer hair, with the "dangerous" spike belt? Haha, I read your blog waaaayyy too much.

caylee said...

that's the blouse you wore a while back with that crazy studded belt right?
i'm still so in love with it. what an amazing find.

Monika P. said...

I love this silk blouse from the day you showed it with studded belt on your waist! GREAT!

Niki B. said...

you look rad, i love how you can rock anything and own it. i have major closet envy!

and to the Annonymous that made the thighs comment... Seriously?! isnt the fashion industry fucked up enough with misconceptions of beauty and skewed body image? we should be moving away from those perceptions not perpetuating them. karla your legs rock, you're one hot lady.

I remember this blouse, it is a stunner, the collar/neckline is beautiful. I'd have gone for less volume though with a tight skirt or trousers

Lily said...

This is probably one of my favourite looks you've ever worn, its so 1940s romantic. Loving the mix of colours and fabrics. Ohh and I want that silk blouse it reminds me of one of Dree Hemingway's looks from her recent editorial in Russian Vogue.

It's cute...but wow. Short skirt. It's a little too short, to be honest. Not saying you look bad, its just really short.

I just popped by your blog and I must tell you I love your style. It's very old hollwood glamour...for some odd reason it reminds me of Ava Gabor so much. Karla you are gorgeous! Keep up with the awesome styling!

Consider the mantra "less is more" when it comes to bold accessories (hat, earrings, sunnies)

I like your shoes. Have a wonderful weekend!

wilwarin said...

i love the skirt, it's killer... i love the blouse... but these 2 are too much to be frank... and hat is overdone... just stop overdoing it... and remember rule leave one thing before leaving home... the hat should have been left home for sure...

LOOOOOVE YOUR FLOPPY HAT!

Hannah said...

I like all the pieces individually, but not together.


I think you're super pretty!

Jill said...

classy, indeed.

Alyssa said...

The accessories ruin everything, otherwise the outfit is nice. The old Karla was just more effortless, you just try too hard nowadays.

vancouvergirl05 said...

I've always wanted this kind of hat but I'm not sure if i could pull it off. it looks great on you, though!

karla should be spelled with a c for crap said...

this look is so silly it's stupid I mean c'mon NOW the skirt's cute but NOT MADE for YOU .... AND talk about Trend OVER KILL! why are YOU wearing earrings, sunglasses and a huge old ugly floppy hat all at the same time????

The entire outfit is a "hot mess" let's title this post: "Grandma gone wild at the Circus and meets a Clown!"

The Barely Tattoo'd Artist said...

HA! I think it's funny when people leaving insulting comments, yet don't have the balls to leave an email or something like that so they can be confronted later about their rude comments...

...Screw them, Karla...as always, you are a huge inspiration...I may not go for the skirt (I have a Kim Kardashian booty going on and don't want to flash the town I'm in my cheekiness), but I definately am going to find a blouse close to that...It's look wonderful with my pencil skirts and wide legged slacks...

You know what, you make me want to get a hat like that too...and I'm no fan of hats...

i think those floppy hats look better with those outfits that dont look as if they took 5 hours to create...you know, the nonchalant, laid-back look. It just looks a little contrived here (not "hating"...its just my opinion!) I like your shoes though and the blouse is lovely.

ichigo-chii said...

Beautiful. I really love those vibrant colours. The Outfit looks nostalgic yet fashionable.

MY FASHIONALITY said...

OMG this is one of your most gorgeous outfits! I loooove the color mix and fabrics <3

Fernanda said...

I agree with some people here...pieces are lovelly separate, but they didn't work so well together. It's too much volume for your petite figure, and the skirt is too short (I like them though).

You should try this beautiful blouse with tight pants or shorts.

And be careful with so many accessories together.

I like your trials!

Obia (Haute and TRASHED) said...

what a lovely top!
