Corner Coffee Shop

Last Sunday I took a trip to the Rose Bowl flea market for the very first time. It was so overwhelming, but I'm so happy I was to find the furniture pieces I had been looking for. While walking around and dying in the scorching heat, I found a vendor who had a rack of taffeta skirts and I happened to fall in love with this particular one...
Worn with American Apparel leotard, vintage earrings, Elizabeth and James sunglasses, and Giuseppe Zanotti ankle boots.

Karla, from someone who's been following your blog religiously for over two years I don't feel like you portray who you really are.. I know you're a virgo, so set on perfection.. But I know you enjoy more than just restaurants and flea markets.. Maybe we can see what you do for nightlife? Or what you wear in between your weekly posts? It just all seems staged. Give your blog some versatility, we don't always need the flawless outfit.. I would be happy if you took photos in the mirror or of things that inspire you, at least I'd feel it were more real

I went through your entire blog in one sitting. I am absolutely in love!!! I have to get my hands on fuller skirts like this. I disagree with the comments that your photos should be less staged. This isn't facebook. We can go there to see mirror pictures and such. Thank you for the inspiration! Your hair is to "dye" for. Yes, I am THAT corny.

I've tried and tried but it never looks right on me! You, on the other hand, are like the earring queen! You suit all sorts of big earrings!

Hi carla, I love to follow yr blog. You dress like I did back in the 80s and 90s. But i do notice u are losing your curves, Is is all the ugly hate comments from other haters? Your face looks so thin and frail, I prefer you with your curves looking more healthy. Just showing concern is all. You still are beautiful . Just be careful with the wieght thing,, trust me I know what im talking about.
