I love that look!

hidzume said...

still loving the shoes <3

Jennifer said...

I thought the dress was AA when I initially saw it. It's a lovely shade of purple. You look great, as always.

(l) that dress.

R said...

I love the dress, the color is really nice, I thought it was AA at first as well. How do you always manage to have no cars in your photos lol?
And your boyfriend also has some amazing style, so kudos to him! I love the hair.
You guys must look so cute and stylish together haha

joanne said...

you wore it out of the store?! i like the dress, but not that much to wear used clothing out of a thrift store. who knows who had it before you and what it's gone through. gross.

Fashion Tidbits said...

woah! you always look awesome in your body con dresses!

Lady Melbourne said...

Ah body con- it's like this dress and you were made for each other!
I'm making a trip to AA on the weekend inspired by all your dresses and skirts, I'll see if I can manage to work it...
I love the shots in your previous post as well, very editorial and always a pleasure to view.

hi!
i'm de-lurking to say that i LOVE your outfits.
this purple dress is amazing!!

Robin said...

Love the look! And the color of the shirt is amazing

Lydia said...

the color of the dress is amazing, and i like the loose/tight contrast going on. The last picture is straight out of Vogue.

ps. I really like your new header!

fashionlauncher said...

These three colors together looks amazing! It's nice to see more colors on you. :)

Ida said...

I just love the way your mind works, and combines pieces like that H&M jacket with the Chanel purse. You are a genius, Karla!

Farren said...

i actually watched pretty woman for like the gazillionth time today and felt inspired by it. incredibly one of the outfits was a bandage skirt a la the ammerican apparel ones everyone seems to own and a denim jacket. i swear i've seen about 20 outfit posts with that same description. it really does prove the whole fashion gets recycled.

Anniken said...

LOVE the dress....and your legs. luckygirl

Hannah said...

Wow, really love this. How can you make a cargo jacket look so desirable?! haha

Today is actually the first sunny day this summer in England. And my parents left me with no keys - I'm locked inside. I suppose I could do a Houdini and climb out the kitchen window. . .

Barbara said...

I've been eying those boots, but I'm not sure I would get much use out of them. If only I could find them for less than 200. You look amazing.

Margaux said...

The boots are amazing ! Love your style! http://barock-and-roll.blogspot.com/

Love your style girl....and guess who's making those Marc Jacob look alikes for only $149????

Joanna-s-style said...

I love it all!! Super adorable!

Anonymous said...

hey, same jacket as Rumi. I love her style but I think you wear it even better!!

GossipZ said...

Your outfit is very chic!
BTW I like the header image of the blog!

vix said...

Love this outfit. I'm kind of getting a Melanie Huynh vibe from it (that's a very good thing!). Wanted to say thanks for your reply on the mj booties. I'm going to get them for sure!

elle said...

Cute! I'm scared for these poses in the road. Watch for cars. :-)

Loving the Marc boots.

Queen Lazy said...

Gorgeous dress! It's a fabulous find!

Adiel said...

Great find! Why can't I ever find stuff like this at my thrift stores?

Tiana said...

You pull of short stuff very well! Lucky find!

Outi said...

Gorgeous shoes. And fun combinations.

Le Fashion said...

Love hearing your future plans. That kind of planning shows you are a true fashionista!

Hannah said...

I found keys! ahahaha

Anyway. I finally got myself together and made a blog (whilst sipping lemonade in the garden, might I add).

No posts as of yet, but when I do, could a link exchange be on the cards? Please? :)

* Fashion Dreamer * said...

Haha I totally had a Pretty Woman moment the other day, even a slouchy jumper can't un-pretty-woman purple tights and a bodycon skirt. Your parka and amazing MJ boots do the job here though

Rich Hippie said...

i love your outfit and your blog far to much, oh and your BF has an amazing sense of style to, style match in heaven

Arielle said...

i need that jacket! It's gorgeous

Rachel said...

FELICITY [!] said...

Siljesfashion said...

Great look!

the.ramonas said...

Sending some Ramonas' love.
We just added you to our blog!

entirely official said...

what a find! That dress looks great. Marc Jacobs boots with it are great too

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

ha, your mom's comment is funny, but totally not what i think about the dress! i think since you paired it with chunky, low boots that it's not 'pretty woman' at all! love how you paired it with the jacket though, very unexpected!

♥ fashion chalet said...

Love your new header and the jacket <3

chauss said...

hey, fashionisp told me to check out your blog. good job! check mine. :)

paolina said...

Mimi said...

I love this blue.It looks always great and the cut of the vintage dress is also neat.

Luxe. said...

That dress is such a good find and I love the colour on you. Youve just reminded me that I havent been vintage shopping in ages!

Taylor said...

I'm in love with your jacket. You have such good style.

Nicole said...

Karla, you are too fly. Love your style, Ms. Lady!

SOMETHING PICASSO said...

Such a pretty color, I like the added toughness :)

Anonymous said...

Can you really wear high heels every day without any footpain, or did you put heels on just for the pictures?

And btw you have amazing style i love how you can chance your style dramaticly and still look like your self! (Sorry about my english, i'm from finland)

vintage clothes said...

hmmm i loove that dress such a great find! those photos are great aswell like something out of a magazine!

karla said...

jennifer: looks a lot like the AA u-neck dress, except for it has a totally different texture (so awesome).

r: because I take my pictures in the middle of no where, haha! and yes, not gonna lie- my boyfriend has pretty cool hair.

joanne: I was excited you know?

lady melbourne: oh goodness you’re going to love the u-neck dresses! and I recommend getting the interlock pencil skirt- A) it’s so versatile and B) it would totally fit in with your dainty, feminine pieces.

lydia: thank you precious!

ida: oh, stop it. I’m totally not a genius- I suck at chemistry. ;)

farren: pretty woman is definitely an inspiring style film- which is weird because she was a prostitute in the movie. love those thigh-high boots julia rocks!

hannah: hahhaa (you really made me laugh). get out and enjoy the weather lady!

barbara: a reader notified me that nine west has created a similar version for about half the price! check them out... ninewest.com

anon6:51: checked them out and I really love those dark brown ones.

vix: wooo hooo! you’re gonna love them, pinky promise.

elle: oh I’ll be fine- cars rarely pass through that road.

adiel: you just have to look hard... my friend and I are doing a “how to find great pieces at the thrift store” speech haha!

le fashion: I’m actually always thinking ahead- it makes it easier to decide whether or not to purchase something.

hannah: yes! ps. you made me crave lemonade now.

fashion dreamer: love slouchy jumpers!

cupcakes and cashmere: haha my mother is a funny lady!

anon6:32: no I really wear heels all day, is that odd?
