NYE

a1.jpg picture by stylebook18

Sorry for taking five hundred years and a half to post something... I've been really out of it lately. But vacation time is over and I'm back with a bang (okay not really)! 

I showed up in Arizona with a whole bunch of black clothes, four pairs of shoes, and just a few accessories. Apparently almost every girl in AZ likes wearing spandex shirts (well, they call them dresses) and tons of makeup. I brought a simple black bouffant mini dress but decided it wasn't "New Years Eve"-ish enough so I borrowed my best friend's vintage sequins mini and her mom's Louis Vuitton bronze clutch to kick it up a notch. Then we found a random mask and decided it would complete the look perfectly. 

Anyway, hope you all had a fabulous New Yearssss!

Wearing a vintage beaded dress, Louis Vuitton clutch, random mask, and Bebe platform pumps

I love the dress and mask. Does your bestfriend have the same taste as you and are you and her the same size? Do you guys share clothes all the time. Thanks for giving me such great ideas.

BRILLIANT!! The outfit reminds me of a masquerade (or maybe thats what you are going to attend ^^), a boy meets girl, both in disguise and then...electric shock between their eyes!!

What a lovely dress and the mask is really the perfect with it.

I think I'll have to get some sort of mask for myself, this isn't the first mask I've came across this week.

Ester said...

leslie v. said...

The mask's gooooorgeous, completes the look perfectly, indeed.

I think the dress is not very flattering and the clutch looks a bit wrong, but that's just my opinion. Hope you had a great time!

Cheers!

This outfit is NYE 09 perfection and how great do your legs look in that dress?! I need to visit your blog more, I have no idea what you're doing in AZ, I must look back, read and find out!

Kat George said...

You, and the dress, are stunning! I love the pattern on the sleeve of the dress- the cage like pattern makes it seem more modern and edgy!

Hope you had a great night!

You look fabulous, darling :) Happy 2009!

AMAZING SHOES! happy new year! xxo

lisa said...

I love how you put this together spur-of-the-moment and still looked great. Happy 2009!

Kingshuk said...

You look incredibly cool!

Lydia said...

My favorite part of this outfit is the fact that it makes me believe that style is a mentality, not a size. I'm not saying that you are fat, or overweight, or anything like that, but you look SO gorgeous in a dress that some *cough* anonymous haters *cough* think is "unflattering". You exude confidence and class, very inspiring.

Grace said...

That was a killer dress, loooooovvveee it..

Federica - Inside a bullet with butterfly wings said...

I LOVE your dress!!!! :D

Cafe Nights said...

what an amazing outfit for new years eve! and the mask is a unique touch!

TEXTSTYLES said...

that first photograph is beautiful
the colours, the composition.
very arresting

always beautiful

*bisous*

Isabel said...

Shitdamn you're gorgeous. That look really IS perfect.

Tonia said...

I will have to go against the general opinion, and say that I don't love that dress on you. It's unflattering, and looks like it's half a size too small. I love the mask though, definitely need one of those!

Wow !! Where did you get this mask !!! =) I want the same !! =)

that dress is fabulous, i love the mask!

Anonymous said...

karla, i promise not every girl in az dresses like that... judging by your experience i'm going to go ahead and assume you spent NYE in old town scottsdale, am i right?

Vintage Tea said...

Great outfit. x

kara - all things ordinary said...

cheers, the mask is perfect

Shirin said...

a final proof that doesn't have to mean boring!! and tell you're friend, her dress is amazing!

dieyoungstaypretty88 said...

hey just wanted to say love your blog.
you have a very annoyingly great body and i want to steal your wardrobe.
i've added you to my blogroll.
would love for you to take a look at mine.
die young, stay pretty.

karla said...

anon11:35: She dresses far more casual than I do, but she's always buying these elegant dresses that I never see her wear (she's crazy for not wearing them). And yea, we're a similar size.


anon11:37: That's what I was going for ;)

sunset: Nope didn't fall, but tripped!

for love not money: Hahaha, I should've done that!

ana: She's one of my favorite authors of all time.

manzanitha: Aw thank you for the super sweet comment!

swank heights: Really? I didn't know Barbie had wide feet ;)

mentalia: Thanks, I checked it out- so pretty and yes, I'd totally wear it (I love feathers)!

lydia: I like you alot Lydia- you're so damn sweet.

anon6:50: Yep I was in Scottsdale :)

Glad I stumbled upon your blog! Will be writing up a quick post about Karla's Closet now!

Karen said...

I love it! Esp the mask

red.door.read said...

this outfit kills. absolutely

O said...

girls that live in Las Vegas also dress in this odd, jewel toned "dress" situation with entirely too much makeup on and think they are stylish, I'm not sure where this phenomenon comes from. I just posted something about this citygirllv.com

Great NYE outfit! Perfect!!
