Why I Heart My...

scan-1.jpg picture by stylebook18scan0001-2-1.jpg picture by stylebook18

Thank you Vogue Girl Korea for letting me be a part of their "Why I Love my" feature alongside Garance Dore, Fashion Squad, Bunny Bisous, and Fashion Toast!

Here's the interview in case you'd like to read it:

What is your favorite item? My Marc by Marc Jacobs' studded bag

Can you explain the reason? 1. It fits my Macbook, massive wallet, and planner 2. The bag has put up with my careless abuse for almost a year already 3. Allows me to smuggle sunflower seeds and chocolate-covered gummy bears into the movie theater 4. Smells like coconut body butter for some weird reason 5. The stud and staple detail is seriously genius 6. Can carry a change of shoes 7. It pretty much goes with anything I wear 8. Has many compartments inside which makes my busy life a lot less of a hassle 9. Serves as a pillow sometimes 10. Also serves as a heating device whenever my legs are cold

When/How/Why did you get it? Well it was between this bag and a crimson red Miu Miu one, but then my birthday came around and my parents surprised me with it!

What is your signature style? It's always a clash between feminine and masculine pieces with a touch of easy elegance, sometimes a touch of craziness too.

What is your favorite way of styling the item? Can you give any tips? My Marc by Marc bag is so versatile, it can almost be worn with anything.

How often do you wear the item? Nearly everyday.

What is your current wish item? If you could buy one item for the Autumn, what would it be? Christian Louboutin mesh cut-out ankle boots

I love the photos they used, great spread (and bag)!

Petra said...

COngratulations on the spread! You look stunning and it is a really sweet feature.

I particuarly like your comment about how your bag serves as a heating device to keep your legs warm. I am very keen to try this out now... anything that allows me to wear shorter skirts in winter! ;)

Is it just me or in one of these photos does the bag look really different? The outfit with the parka & corset. Is it the same bag?

Congrats on the spread!

its a nice little interview, congrats...i especially like how it is more about an object and how you personalize it rather than an entire questionnaire about your likes and dislikes.

i was just looking through your archives and i realized that with your long hair you really had a baby face and looked much younger. this short hair suits you wonderfully, you look grown up and like a woman, and like the true fashion maverick you are.

@Damsels Someone starts an account on a journal site and pretends to be the person in the icons -- sometimes a fictional person but sometimes the actual person in the image. It's weird but mostly harmless (like fanfic) but I thought Karla should know, it's her image being used.

Crystal said...

My "everything bag" is unfortunately on it's last life. One of the straps is holding on for its dear life and I'm counting down the days until it snaps. I guess I should go on a hunt for a new black bag someday soon...
And a bag that is able to carry a pair of shoes is always a must!
