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.
If you can’t wait for the just right items to pop up on her vintage e-boutique, check out our above approximation of Karla’s Closet style:
Preppy? Check. A striped sailor shirt and trench.
Arty? Check. Funky, printed pants.
Retro Louche? Check. Some gold chains and sky-hi platform heels.
Looking all together fabulous? One hell of a check!
