Fashion Blogger Feature: Karla’s Closet

This not-so-little statement piece feature arrives via the visionary fashion and jewelry combinations of Karla’s Closet.

Karlas Closet . Chain Heavy.

The unique, flirty and ultimately classic ensemble you see here is just one of the ‘all vintage clothing‘ creations of the vintage-inspired business venture, Karla’s Closet.

A strictly vintage clothing store, Karla’s Closet items are all pre-worn.

Amazing fashion ensembles created from combinations of the Karla’s Closet eclectic inventory can be found with detailed descriptions right here… on the Karla’s Closet Blog.

In this photo, Karla models one of most fabulous outfits I’ve ever seen. Described by the Model/ Author/ Entrepreneur herself as:

“A vintage Ungaro skirt that I found on Ebay, an American Apparel striped sweater, 70s Erwin Pearl necklace,  Balenciaga sunglasses, my favorite Coach clutch, and Christian Louboutins.”

Clock Inspired 70s Erwin Pearl necklace

This timepiece-inspired statement necklace by jewelry designer Erwin Pearl, circa 1970’s is (in my humble and personal opinion), the glue that holds this bodacious outfit together. Sometimes an outfit even as adorable and stylish as this one, with a great pink pencil skirt and amazing matching clutch and heels still needs that one illuminating piece of jewelry that ties every piece together in perfect stylish harmony.

Kate Hudson’s Emerald-Cut Engagement Ring and CH+KH Jewelry Line

The radiantly reminiscent daughter of Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson has been greatly admired for her perfect mixture of humor and beauty from the moment she was seen on screen. We first embraced Kate Hudson as Penny Lane, her breakout role in the 2000 filmAlmost Famous” and haven’t looked back. This blonde bombshell sported a boho-glam vibrancy in the clothing and jewelry of ‘Penny Lane’ that has remained with her, evolving and growing in a fantastic way. 

While this laid back American Actress prefers a bubbly and expressive ensemble for running around Los Angeles, her glamour and elegance always reigns supreme at red carpet events. With a charming smile and engaging wit, Kate Hudson is on the top of our jewelry and fashion icon list!

“If I’m not feeling good, I load on lots of jewelry,” says Hudson, who sometimes borrows pieces from her mom, Goldie Hawn. “It gives me energy and makes me feel kind of happy.”

Kate Hudson engaged to Muse rocker Matt Bellamy

Jewelry loves you right back, Miss Hudson, or should we say ..  Soon to be Mrs. Matt Bellamy! Announcing yesterday that she would be marrying Muse rocker Matt Bellamy, Kate Hudson giggled as Matt Lauer was the first to notice the emerald-cut engagement ring on her finger.  The platinum-set ring with tapered baguettes on the side is estimated by jewelry experts to be approximately nine carats in weight.

Watch the video of Kate Hudson’s Engagement announcement here, and sneak a peak at her fantastic emerald-cut ring!

The newly engaged and expecting Mother is not only receiving incredible pieces of jewelry, but has been designing them as well.  Collaborating with close friend and Co-Founder of Chrome Hearts,Laurie Lynn Stark. The “KH + CH” Jewelry Line will mark the first time Chrome Hearts has worked with an actress. The jewelry industry leading company has worked with Rick Owens, Comme des Garçons, A Bathing Ape, Barbie and Chanel in the past.

Pieces from the Kate Hudson x Chrome Hearts jewelry line, CH+KH.

Set to launch this summer, the CH+KH collection takes inspiration from the pals’ journeys around the world, with aquamarine, peridot, green tourmaline, and citrine gemstones recalling a Bahamian beach.

White diamonds and freshwater pearls give the feminine pieces—set in 22kt and 18kt gold and ranging from stackable rings to chunky cuffs—a luxurious flair.

Bohemian Glam and Jewelry Lovers Rejoice…
