Polkadots & Moonbeams

I got these little polka dot shorts a few months back and of course I had to alter them because they were way too big on me. I love polka dots! Worn with an American Apparel leotard, Prada crystal embellished sandals, and vintage jewelry and clutch.

Amazing!
I just love the combination of the polkadots and the denim jacket! They directly caught my eye! And further your haircolor makes the picture complete. I'm think to cut my hair just like you. I love it! Do you ever miss your long hair? because when I see friends with long hair I feel a glimp of jealousy!

With love,

Joy.

Cecily said...

Ahhh, culottes.
I've got this theory that every girl wants to dress as their mom...from how they remember their mom when they were 5 years old...and thought they were the tallest/most beautiful woman and dressed so cool in like floral dresses and 90's heels...
Well, my ma used to wear culottes! So, I blame that for my obsession..

Wow, you look really skinny. I think you always struggled with your weight.. too skinny doesn't fit you.
Also, I noticed you deleted a lot of your posts. And I mean a lot.. Why? Really, why? Are you not happy with them? Or are you insecure about it?

Wow this is amazing. I can see myself wearing something like that. Really nice and well put together.

fab as always, ms. deras. you are an electric breathe of fresh air in a sea of fashion-dogma devotees. this is FASHION, people! it's meant to be wild and shocking and devil may care, and i'll take a shaggy-chic vintage fur coat and chiffon dress over another herve leger and nude heels any day. long live the girls who push the envelope.

also, to commenter "vanessa"-
up yours, sugar lips. your jealousy is palatable even online. carry on with your side-cast sneers somewhere else, you really aren't welcome here.

Vanessa said...

to joanie:
Did i said something wrong? I just wondered why karla deleted a lot of her posts. I've bookmarked some of her (and some from other bloggers) post as inspiration and i recently wanted to clean up my bookmarks and i just noticed that a lot of her posts don't exist anymore. For example the silk man blouse or the silk green prada pants. So all i wondered why she removed some of her posts.
Maybe the way i said it was a bit bitchy. Im sorry for that, but english is not my mother language.
I like you karla! Love your style. Oh and the other day i was going to buy something from your online shop, but the shipping cost are extremely high. Higher than the item i wanted to buy. So i did not purchased them. Can you do something about the shipping price to Europe please? Thanks. x

Hi, I love your style and your blog. I have a question, what kind of bra would you wear with the AA leotard? I would rather wear a bra than go braless.

Thanks so much, Karla :)

The black makeup around your eyes makes you look sick. I guess it just doesn't go so well with your new hairstyle..which by the way is super cute. You look very pretty with just natural makeup..even lipstick.
