I was wandering through one of my favorite vintage shops when I spotted these incredibly funky sunglasses dangling from the store's wall panel. I had been meaning to purchase a pair of round frames, but these ones are damn perfect because they are indeed a little too "crazy." And for me, crazy is good. 

Wearing Zara sequins tee, zipper skirt from H&M, vintage sunglasses, Marni wedges

It should be 'sequinned tee' not 'sequins'!! It's kind of like saying a beads skirt rather than a beaded skirt, or an embroidery blouse instead of an embroided one.

What Was I Thinking? said...

The crazy sunglasses just add a nice touch to this whole look, love the Marni wedges :)

Charlotte Drene said...

Magnificent glasses.

The face isn't too bad either :-)

finally something youthful on you... your hair looks beautiful and whole outfit is great :)

Monika said...

Really like your new sunnies, but my favourite in your wardrobe are those with black and white frame (you bought them in Europe). Like the mix of sequins and zipper skirtl You are not afraid of any experiments. Thats great! And what I also love in you is that you are not plastic, like some girls in America. I mean dark tanned, platinum blondies or with dyed black hair (of course I mean those girls who naturally are't like that). Like your natural beauty;)!

I literally thought, "perfection," when I saw this outfit. I really appreciate a good nearly all black outfit during the summer. It looks great and doesn't seem as if you would be dying from the heat while wearing it.

Hey karla is the tee from zara instore now?

Nice outfit.

ann-charlotte said...

hey karla...
some days ago I thought about fashion, style and personality, and how each one is linked to the other.
can people, who join trends have a personal/authentic style? what does fashion mean to you? what sense does it have? is fashion art? and each stylish person an artist?

sorry for asking so much. on such a horrible language level.
please take some time to answer my questions. I would be pleased to know your thought about them.

great outfit, by the way. to me you have a great an unique style. which means having courage aswell.

have a beutiful day,
charlotte (munich)

Another gorgeous look on you. Crazy is good sometimes, and in this case it's the cherry on the sundae.

aww you look so cute in these ones! especially with the glasses haha! if only australia had zara and h&m :(

Anonymous said...

re: your twitter. Do you really think it's funny to put other people down for what their bodies look like? If she feels good, why shouldn't she go for that mini dress? It's just sad--you get attacked for your body on this blog a lot, why would you want to turn around and be as bad as the anonymous commenters here?

mikaela said...

you're too pretty!

that skirt is hot :)

Jajababy said...

Love love love the wedges!

the quirky glasses with the asymmetrical closure on that zipper skirt are just perfect outfit elements! you have true style!

Yess said...

HOMYGOD.

You look so gorgeous. That skirt! I vaguely remember it from the archives, and it looks just as marvelous on you as it did back then. And the pairing with the graphic tee--magic.

And the sunglasses, too. Just, just great. I can't even talk right now. Fantastic.

i think you look gorgeous, although i don't see ANYTHING crazy about the glasses....they are actually a classic shape

Yvonne Anderson said...

Love them! I can't wear just any sunnies as I have glasses but am thinking of contacts once again....

kate said...

Some of your readers seem to be a tad oversensitive i.e. your comment about the middle aged woman wearing spandex.
Clearly some of your readers can't except some of your opinions and if you're not exactly who they picture you to be they blow up, well i say grow up you oversensitive douchebags


p.s. loveeely outfit

Anonymous said...

FINALLY you look your age.

this outfit loos good but very common - you know it's not really creative or inspired to wear H+M with Zara. EASY

and I agree that the glasses are not really crazy at all, they're just not Wayfarers.

PUNKIE said...

OMG! this sunglasses re amazing! what a great find! nice look, the wedges are still obsessing me!

Style Redux said...

I still adore those Marni wedges of yours. I passed up an amazing pair of Marni's, quite similar to yours, for a ridiculously good price. Still haven't fully recovered from that mistake.

And those glasses are perfect. I'm all about funky eyewear these days!

KAELA said...

"just saw a 60 yr old woman wearing a spandex mini dress with a flat ass and a pot belly... who does that!"

Wow. Just wow.

i don't think a negative response to karlas twitter comment is being oversensitive. It's not about what she said about the woman -lets face it, we would all probably think it- it's just that some of us would feel embarrassed at our smug superiority and therefore not post such a comment.
