Wow, I didn't think what was meant as a joke would cause such a stir. I come from a family that's constantly joking around, we're always making fun of each other and none us are sensitive nor do we ever take any of it personal. I never meant to hurt anyone's feelings... I seem to forget my sarcasm doesn't translate well on the internet. So if I offended anyone, I apologize.

Anyway, I'm so proud of myself for managing to trot across uneven cobblestone grounds in five-inchers without twisting an ankle. It kind of made me feel like I won't be needing those high-top converse or triple-buckle boots for my European vacation after all!

The dress is pure amazement! How did you manage to shorten it and make it look like it was meant to be that way!?

Karla, everyone is going to have an opinion no matter how or who you are. Do you and don't apologize for it. ;)

And you look lovely as always.

heleen db said...

I love the first picture where the wind is playing with your dress - so pretty!

And about your ability to walk in heels; you succeed where I inevitably fail :(

Amazing! Love the bag and the shoes, and the dress is so beautiful... :)

I agree with Alicia. You can't please everyone.

But anyway, I love this black and white combo with your red painted nails. Very nice!

R said...

People just take things way to seriously sometimes. I dont think you need to apologize for a joke.
Anywayss I love these photos, the water and dress are gorgeous. And Im always quite impressed by anyone who can walk on cobblestone.
The other day I was walking on cobblestone in like, maybe 1 inch wedges, and I went over on my heel. I was like.. trust me to make even such a thing possible.. what would I do when actually wearing a heel? The answer.. most likely seriously injure my ankle =\

Italy has much worse cobblestones, it has real cracks and heels get stuck in them easially. I had a hard time when I was there. It's possible but you really have to watch where you walk when you are on that type of ground. I love your hair! I used your picture as inspiration on a haircut I just did on a friend. You, the glamouri and Kate L. have the best hair now!

Nadja said...

I love your dress, it's really cool that was a wedding dress first!! With wedges is it easy to walk on cobblestones.

I don't think the fact that your family tease each other has much bearing on what you say to total strangers. How can that comment possibly understood as a joke outside of intimate friends or family? Especially when it is said on the defensive and designed to hurt.

A "goofy personality" is a pretty weak excuse for attacking someone's appearance. If this girl that laughed at you put it down to her "goofy personality", would you feel any less offended?

I admit that if pressed for a comeback I'd reach for the nearest insult at hand but if I'd said what you did I wouldn't be proud of it, and I wouldn't revel in my repartee by broadcasting it over the internet.

Karla, you are young and have a varying but excellent taste in clothes - this post is testament to that, because this dress is both beautiful and inventive - but tact is worth exercising. It signifies refinement and a certain sophistication. Don't confine these qualities to your style alone.

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” -- Audrey Hepburn

This is my first time to ever comment, I've been lurking for a few months now. Your style is so fierce, just thought it needed to be said.

and also, I don't see how anyone would take the last post offensively. The lady laughed at you and you called her on it and made her look stupid. She deserved it.

Simply beautiful. It is very rare when you can say a person is beautiful-- not oh thats a nice dress or your makeup is pretty...when the whole pciture is just beautiful :)

everyone judges people whether they admit to it or not. i don't know why people are taking it so personal. there isn't one person who goes through life without judging. and natasha, just as you think karla was so very disrespectful to the fat ass, you're being disrespectful leaving a completely unnecessary comment. no one is mother theresa, and i guarantee you you're no mother teresa either even if you respect all humanity.

Antoinette said...

All those catty idiots commenting on how Karla "shouldn't" wear white leggings can go suck themselves.
If I had gorgeous legs like hers I wouldn't hide them behind black leggings or black pants all my life either. Just because some dumbasses think only 00 twig-leg girls can wear light colors doesn't mean she can't show off and be proud of her awesome bod.

Anonymous said...

hey, there is no nid to apologize ger. there is nothing wrong in directing back at the ger when she clearly had no manners to call he rown in de first place. if i were u i would have done de same. and seriously, this is ur blog. u have de right to say wadever u wan and u dont owe any explanation to anyone. u go girl. at least u dress differently and not end up like every single one on de streets. it would be more exciting if everyone is like u.

it always amazes me how you can make something as simple as stockings look so incredibly sexy.

ps. very big of you to apologize to those who might have been offended instead of getting counter-offended at all of the nasty things they posted.

pss. you may still want to consider those high-top converse or triple-buckle boots for Florence and Rome if you value your heels because cobblestone absolutely RUINS the heel of ...well, heels.

Anon, if you've read her comments in posts from a while ago, she's never ever shown that she has been offended by the rude comments people have made in the past. It makes sense now, her family has allowed her to develop a thick skin. She said something about the girl simply because she felt like it. There doesn't have to be a reason for everything!

Denise said...

Hey hun...

Perhaps it would be good to clear the clutter by culling all the fiery to-and-fro comments about the comeback on the previous post. It's just departing from the fact that your fashion style blog is a fashion style blog, and not a personality fault-picking broadcast.

That said, I think you did a wonderful job with shortening the dress (if you did it yourself), otherwise it looks great on you anyway. I think keeping the jewelry to a minimum was a fab idea, it lets the dress to all the talking. :) Minis really suit you!

Much love from NZ... xx

There was a post a while ago where Karla said something to the effect of why should she accept criticism on her outfits from a girl who wears Uggs. I'm not going to look it up & quote it, but I'm pretty sure it was along those lines. Karla is entitled to her opinion, but this, like yesterday's post, seemed snobby, whether she was offended or not. That's what I meant. I'm not here to argue, I'm just pointing out that I can understand why people felt it was a rude thing to say. I love her blog too, which is why I have pointed out that the comment was insensitive.

Okay, that aside, this is a nice dress. Yes, I am paying attention to the fashion. ;P

I can't believe that's a wedding dress! It's a pretty darn incredible wedding dress. You are genius when it comes to vintage finds.

Anonymous said...

You're apologizing because you see that people were offended and you don't want to lose your readers or reputation but you don't apologize for your actions, what you said, and assumptions. You assumed incorrectly that the girl would understand your joke and you assumed incorrectly that we would as well. I just don't understand why people find it necessary to make fun of other people's sizes as their only way of come backs or whatever.

Anonymous said...

Why are ALL your dresses SO short. There is a concept of leaving things to the imagination. This was once long, or I assume it was because it was a wedding dress, so you had the option of not making it so mini.

sierra said...

Wonderful dress! And anonymous7:51, she doesn't have to apologize in the first place!!! You don't need to understand why she used the triple chin thing as her come back. Get out of her blog and you will not be affected by anything she says or does. Simple as that.

vix said...

Oh don't apologize. This is YOUR blog afterall. I personally thought it was funny and I like that you show off your personality. Better yet I like that you have one. And yeah I'm pretty sure it was the same few anons posting LOL.

Moving on... That first picture is too gorgeous. Your side profile is unreal. Big props to the photog! And I love this outfit. Would've never guessed that it used to be a wedding dress.

Gabrowl said...

Well I would have to say that yesterday you looked drop dead gorgeous!!! Especially even in person you are even more beautiful! I didn't even know that this dress was a wedding dress. Now it makes me love the dress even more baby! you are so talented! And simply amazing!!!


Ps. You didn't fall on the cobblestone because you were holding onto my arm. :)

indigotangerine said...

I love your dress, it's spectacular, so lovely and wispy, especially the shoulder details. To the anonymous commenters who complain about the length of your dress or attitude- if they don't have the guts to take credit for thier words, their words don't carry much value.

She can write about her toilet routine if she wanted to. Its HER blog and she isn't obligated to please EVERYBODY.

If you're triple chinned and cried yourself to sleep because of the last entry you really should spare yourself the embarrassment and leave her alone.

Monica said...

I love watching [or reading rather] you glide blithely over insecure and most probably weight challenged females, who are clearly lashing out at the girl with the fabulous dress.

I challenge the sour, illiterate anonymous creature to grow a pair and stop hiding, so I can slowly but surely crush her spirit.

All this hate really doesn't make sense to me.

I love that you actually went ahead and shortened a wedding dress. I've thought about doing it a fair few times but laziness usually pulls me out of that dream ;)

Looking fabulous here!

I'm only anonymous because I don't feel comfortable putting my name out amidst all of the contraversy.. but I just wanted to everybody that it is not up to us to judge. I'm sure half of us would do the same thing in that situation. Regardless, I am here to read a very well-written blog, and appreciate some amazing style, and that's what everyone else is here for as well - Not to condemn a person for what you may or may not feel is a mistake, insult somebody who goes out of her way to update us not only on her life, but on her amazing fashion sense, and judge where I have no place.

Your dress is beautiful as always Karla, and I hope that all of this clears up soon.

Not to add fuel to the fire but...outright laughing at someone's outfit is NOT "fashion critiscm." It's rude and deserved a comeback, no matter what the comeback will be.

I bet the "triple-chin" will think twice next time before she tries to cut someone down and feel superior.

True, it is sometimes better to say nothing (or glare, as I do) but sometimes you snap. People can't help it, OK?

I too have felt the ambush of "anonymous" commenters and guess what? Turned out to be just ONE person. I'm pretty sure that's the case here.

Anyhoo, back to the fashion and not personality. I like Karla even MORE now because she's honest and real. And her style, though nothing I would wear, is pretty darn special at times.

Oh! how creative! would never though of doing that :) They dress looks great. I'm starting to miss your long hair though :p

btw, did you get crap for saying "triple chin" or something? Lol. Whatever. Loose weight people. And if they aren't overweight than there's no reason to get upset. I'm a size 2/4 and I naturally have a bigger chin than most in that size. I don't make a big deal out of it. People are so uptight. sigh.

Hey you totally need to see Stella McCartney's fall09 RW collection! I'm not kidding, most of the time i thought she'd been visiting your blog or smt :D

I mean sure she's always had a thing for tailored suites but now, combined with the puffy 80s sleeves with the bold 80s print.. i don't know, just looked so you!

Do feel free to disagree tho ;)

What do you think about the Cousin it look-a-like fuzzy jackets and the a little over ancle length boots? I love stella, i do, but those i simply hated :S
