Blogger Style: Karla’s Closet


Karla Deras of Karla’s Closet is a girl after our own heart if ever we’ve seen one.
She’s kind of like ThePLEAT staff all rolled into one. Her look is equal parts retro louche, and 1 part preppy with just a dash of arty thrown in for flavor.

Probably because she lives in LA and can drive everywhere, high-altitude heels for all occasions are as much her signature style as the cute, pixie crop top ‘do. She is a master of mixing both styles and prints as you can see from some of our favorites of Karla’s selections.

A student at L.A.’s Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, she must be paying attention in those business classes – you can actually get the Karla’s Closet look straight from her and her tandem website, shopkarlascloset.com which peddles her vintage finds.
