Victorian

Picture5-5.png picture by stylebook18Picture3-2.png picture by stylebook18

Huge thanks to Marjorie from "The Urban Collection" who sent me this vintage dress from her online shop. Although it isn't something I'd normally wear, I am kind of smitten by the pretty lace detailing around the neck, collar, and sleeves. It's almost as precious as Spencer.

Wearing vintage cream dress, Wolford tights, and Bakers strappy button platforms (not pictured)

The dress looks great on you, you definitely pull it off well.

Poladroid for your pictures?? The program is addicting.

Alicia/InstantVintage said...

Beautiful dress. It looks great over the tights.

Sam said...

I recently bought a similar dress like yours, but in purple. I had no idea what to do with it.. But because of your pictures, I know I just have to keep it simple. Then it's perfect

Now that's what I call a sense of style! Girl I just love your fashion brain :D

The dress is stunning, and your eyeliner looks great too. I like the vintage effect on your photos, I think it goes so well with the dress.

Wow! Not only do you look stunning, but that dress gives these pictures an ethereal feel.

leah said...

The dress is AMAZING! Have you shot any better pics while wearing it? If so, you should think about putting them up 'cause on these pics you don't look as amazing as usually. You're gorgeous, btw!

silvia said...

Rikki Lane said...

Stunning dress & photographs :]

caylee said...

that dress is so amazing.

sometimes you just have to wear pieces that you normally wouldn't, and that's a good thing!

and i'm really loving your eyeliner.

Yess said...

You just inspired me. Again. I have a white turtleneck shirt with lacy detailing all around the neckline, like yours. It's a bit simpler, but that makes it a little closer to my more classical style, and thus a little more 'wearable'.

But I ramble. Ahem. It's gorgeous, and you inspired me. As usual.

tia said...

that dress is lovely.

Brittni [Life . Imitating . Art] said...

Gorgeous, looks like a vintage wedding dress!

R said...

I love Poladriod! It's so awesome, and the results always turn out so cool.

shoebox said...

It´s not something I would wear either, but it looks good on you :)
Love the poladroids :)

Robine said...

You look stunning Karla!
Which colour nailpolish do you have on?

Tonia said...

I love the lace detailing but something about this dress is unproportional.. I feel like the skirt should be a little fuller and longer. Maybe try wearing a matching petticoat underneath it?

The vintage polaroid frame goes well with the vintage dress, which I love on you btw. I've never visited the vintage store that sent it but just clicked over--they have some great stuff. Thanks for the tip!!

Before Karla hits the stairmaster,
show us a pix of YOUR FREAKEN ass!
If Karla has a huge ass, then I want an ass like that. People that have nice bodies don't comment, only INSECURE people like you do. Either you're a fat cow or you're a twig! You are BEAUTIFUL Karla, when people are talking about you, that means you're worth talking about! ;}
