Daytime Sparkle

I'm not really sure who said you should only wear sparkly things in the night. I personally rather wear anything sequined or shiny in the day so that the reflection of the sun makes it glisten! This is a vintage 50s top that I've had forever and I love it so much. I wore it yesterday and decided to snap a few photos...
Wearing J.Brand jeans, vintage lucite clutch and copper bracelet, gold bracelets by Taara, and Prada leopard pumps.

Totally agree, jewels are for day! I love having rings on in the car and watching them sparkle on my car roof while i'm driving. Ah the weird things we love.

blue roses said...

those that deem glitters and sparkles for the evening alone are fools; such dogmatic rules and regulations are intended to be broken. there are thou shalt and thou shalt not's, and they must be individualized and tailored to the person, their style, their attitude, their philosophies.

also, insanely and ferociously jealous of that lucite clutch!

It`s a good idea to wear sparke at day. I'd say I prefer it at daytime than nightime. It's more original.

milana2078 said...

Yes, the shiny top can be worn in the daytime. But the leopard shoes should be replaced by quieter shoes! The combination of brilliant top and leopard shoes - it is vulgar for the daytime! This combination is suitable only for night time!

I'm yet to find the right 'sparkle' item to wear in the daytime. But best believe when I do, I'll be rocking it. I love seeing bloggers wear their sparkle when the sun is out.

Anywho, cute outfit. I want that clutch.

Francesca from Façonner said...

I believe that the reason sparkles can only be worn at night is because we have a mental association that they need to glisten in the moonlight. In my honest opinion, this outfit looks a little like it's been left over from the night before. One of fashion's key purposes is to be expressive, but the reason that fashion etiquette is there is because these things have been tried and tested before and if they didn't work then, they probably won't work now either unless we all have a major attitude over haul.

J.Jehanne said...

those shoes are FIRE!!!! I dolove the top and actually the whole outfit but may have been better to tone it down just a little... maybe with a lil blazer over the top? You are still fabulous and enjoy your blog every day. Would love it if you checked mine out one day!

Step on my Heelz said...

I totally agree with you! But Karla, why in the hell do you have to be so damn perfect though? lol
You're my fave blogger, actually you're the 1st blog I ever visited 3 yrs ago and I just fell in (fashion) love, I still religiously follow KarlasCloset and I'm never disappointed, I just can't get enough, sometimes you post an outfit so amazing that I think you could never do better, that's like your peak, but days later, boom, there's a new post and there you are killing it again :)

lol I'm so sorry this sounds a bit stalker-ish (I really sound like a stan, oh my!) but you're safe, I'm french and I leave miiiiles away :)

It's actually funny because I do have a blog too, and I'm wearing a golden sequinned skirt in my last post..but I wore it at night lol, I'll try and follow your advice though :)

Anyway, I just realized I had never commented your blog and I visit it everyday, I just thought I should write and hopefully encourage you to go on strong!
I think that's enough for my long ass comment.
Stay fabulous, Bisous
