Weekend Adventures

I have to admit but this was one of my favorite shoots! I technically broke the law for this shoot but that depends from what law or legal stand point you are looking at this from. However, the important part is that I was able to take these amazing photos at this amazing location.

The outfit details are simple. Black pants, striped pants and black loafers. The top was thrifted and it was only $4.50 (score).

Enjoy them!

Happy Fashion,

Karla.

All that fringe

Fringe is still hot this season and it is rolling right into the next. I purchased this skirt back in spring and have been in love with it since. I wanted a chic and “lazy” outfit for a lazy Saturday and this was perfect.

Hope you have a wonderful Saturday.

Happy Fashion,

Karla.

Cool Saturdays

It is so windy and cool outside that I wish I would have known to wear jeans and a long sleeve shirt. Instead, I wore this summer dress I had been waiting to wear because I thought it was hot outside. However, after having brunch and trying to beat the rain, I realized that this outfit was a bad idea. Regardless of how bad of an idea it was, it is still a cute outfit. This is another dress I bought at Loehmann’s about a year ago when they were having a store liquidation sale. I seriously got this dress for an amazing deal – $20.00! That was about 80% off retail, SCORE! The shoes were another good deal I scored at my local Salvation Army for $6.99 & the bag, well this was one of those pieces I got extremely lucky with. I call this an investment piece because this was actually $20.00 – way more than what I would normally pay for a bag.

Happy Fashion.

Winter Is Here

SONY DSC

Hello Loves!

Winter is officially here! While I know that most of you have already been covered in snow, you are probably reading this and saying, “Is she serious?!” But, serious I am being in deed. The first day of Winter was yesterday and I must say that for us South Floridians the weather was actually warm compared to the last few days ( it’s been “nippy” and/or chilly here). Many of you might and might not know that it doesn’t really get cold here in Miami or South Florida for that matter. Our winters are EXTREMELY mild and some might even say we don’t get winter at all, which in all honesty is very true. The draw back about having to live somewhere warm is that you do not get to see snow ( ever ) and if you’re into fashion, you’ll never be able to bundle up and look fabulous. I promise though, I am not complaining. I have seen snow – don’t care for it and I can only handle so much cold; 50 degrees to be exact. So, with this being said, my fashion looks for winter will most likely be different than most bloggers and at times, you might think it’s summer/spring wear instead of winter wear ( gotta work with what I have). However, I am going to make it my mission to provide you with as many as “winter fashion” looks as possible.

The outfit:

Ok, the shoes are part of my Christmas present and as I mentioned in my previous post, I DO NOT do gift wrapping. Instead, as soon as the FedEx guy left, I ripped the bag open and wore my shoes immediately ( talk about being impatient!). During the day, I rocked the shoes with a pair of jeans, a black top, a black blazer and my blush colored bag. Since I was going to be out all day, I wanted an outfit that I could easily transition for an early Christmas dinner. The dinner was very casual and laid back, so I knew I could get away with this look. The only think I swapped out was my purse for the black clutch. The shoes were the talk of the evening I must add. They are absolutely gorgeous!!! I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them. I had been craving for the Valentino’s original version ( see here ) for a while now but I can’t fork out $1000 for a pair. These however, fit the bill perfectly – they looked like the Valentino’s without the Valentino price tag.

Total Cost of Outfit: $88.50 ( not including Handbag).

  • Top: $4.00
  • Jeans: $12.00
  • Blazer: Gift
  • Shoes: $70.00
  • Clutch: $2.50
  • Purse: (old) $140.00

Happy Fashion.

Hello Loves!

Not much going on here but planning out my week. Here’s a quick post of today’s #ootd.

This whole outfit ( except the shoes) were purchased at Goodwill. I really wanted to wear this skirt today and since the weather allowed for leather, I just had to wear it. I wore the skirt with this gorgeous tank-top “tee” and my second Christmas present, the shoes! Aren’t they lovely? I bought this pair at Kohls and surprisingly enough, they look exactly like a pair from Steve Madden, see below. The big difference was the price! The Steve Madden one’s are available for $109.99 and the one’s I got from Kohl’s were $64.00 BUT I got them for $35.00 with a coupons. I kept my make-up natural-ish and my hair brushed back. It was a bit chilly so I added this long blazer to keep me warm.

This is the perfect outfit for happy hours or hanging out with your girlfriends.

Total cost of outfit: $50.50

  • Top: $4.00
  • Skirt: $3.00
  • Shoes: $35.00
  • Blazer: $6.00
  • Clutch: $2.50

Happy Fashion.

90’s Grunge

Hello Loves!

So today I totally did a throw back look; the nineties. That time when long messy “beach” hair, ripped jeans, black chunky boots, t-shirts & plaid shirts were a stable to being wrapped around our waists. I guess listening to Pearl Jam back to back may cause this to happen ( by the way, Pearl Jam might just be my FAVORITE band of all time!).

The Outfit

Pretty much everything here was purchased at Goodwill, except the boots. The shirt is actually “supposed” to be a cropped sweater BUT on my petite frame it fits more like a “normal” shirt so I tucked it in. The skirt is high waisted with gorgeous gold and black buttons. I finished off this look with dark chunky boots, a dark lip and my oh, so cool sunnglasses.

P.S. I know I didn’t do my Monday’s Craving segment, but I have finals this week! Therefore, I had zero cravings and lots of studying. Needless to say, the only thing I am craving this week, is for 100% on all of my exams!

Total Outfit Cost: $55.14

Those lazy weekends when you want to conquer the world but don’t have the energy to do so. Yup, that’s the currently feeling. A slight headache coming in and a bit drowsy….hope this doesn’t mean I’m getting sick.

The Outfit

This is my Saturday #ootd. I think the outfit was very much inspired by the day; it’s dark and gloomy outside. I kept everything within the black/light gray/dark gray/white color scheme. A very relaxed and comfy outfit indeed, absolutely no makeup ( ok maybe lip gloss) my cap to hide the mess that my hair currently is, stretchy track pants and the comfiest of comfiest tank and jacket. I bought this tweed like bomber jack at the Gap Outlet a few weeks ago and I can’t stop wearing it. My favorite thing about this look though? The bag of course! This is that perfect bag when you just want to carry your credit card, a lip gloss, ID and some cash. The best part that you can wear this either up or down and it will still look great!

Total Cost of Outfit: $70.00

  • Jacket $25.00 (On Sale)
  • Tank: $4.00
  • Track Pants: $12.00 (On Sale)
  • Shoes: $9.00 (On Sale)

Into the wild

SONY DSC

Ok, so I think that lately i have been slightly obsessed with animal print. Not sure why, but i have been in the mood to wear EVERYTHING animal print ha ha ha. I think it might my inner animal instinct.

The Outfit

The top is a gorgeous vest I found at goodwill and decided to pair it with this pencil skirt because the top is subtle yet it adds an element of surprise to the whole outfit. I know, less is more but this just looks smoking together! I’ve added a picture below of the vest so that you can see the details better. I can’t wait to pair the vest with a pair of olive green pants and perhaps a pair of nude pumps, to give it that military flare?! The skirt you might recognize from the Target and Altuzarra collection and it is as pretty as it is in the pictures. I just the slit on the skirt; however; let’s not talk about my much needed tan! And I live in Florida! lol.

Total Cost Of Outfit: $37.54

  • Top: $2.00
  • Skirt: $10.54 ( On Clearance!)
  • Shoes: $20.00 (old)
  • Sunglass: $5.00
