wow i am IN LOVE with this concept ...the dress in itself is garjus! but the tank and the shoes and the clutch!!!
and u cudnt have chosen a better background! i am sooo jealous of u right now!

Anonymous said...

you & your blog are wonderful! but i must say something: please don't actual tip cows. it sounds funny, but if you actually think about it it's fucked up. imagine if you were sleeping, pretty soon you will become ground up meat for someone's (probably fat) face, and then someone comes and knocks you over. it's pretty mean. you don't seem mean at all so i just thought you should think about that a bit.

Shen-Shen said...

Forever 21 does have a lot of cute little bubble hem dresses. Cheaply made and for little money, of course! You look lovely, I love your shoes too.

Putri Erdisa said...

oh my gosh! the bubble dress looks absolutely b-e-a-uuuuutiful!
so does your shoes!

wow wow wow. i love you karlaaa..
;D

Fahmidaaaa said...

Dear Karla,

If you ever moved to Canada and the for some reason [idk why, don't ask me] asked me to be your [best] friend... I might just fall over and DIE.

You are just always SO GOOD.

xoxo,
-your biggest faaaaaannnnn :)

Milly. said...

Ahh I really want a summery white dress like this one - nice find!

Also love the splashes of colour on your fingers and toes :)

Maslačak said...

lose the tee and it will be perfect... love the outfit but tee just is out of place for me :)

Holly said...

I love this, your new hair seems to compliment everything

Thanks for your awesome style

toni said...

why is it that you can never make a joke anymore without people telling you off? i don't get that! bakersfield = cow town! haha.

anyway, i love your dress. f21 has got some good ones lately. you look adorable. all you need is a teacup! :)

Patricia S. said...

Amazing sandals! :)

alice said...

That bubble dress is fabulous and I think that a tee is perfect with it! It makes this whole outfite more complicated and I adore complicated outfits! You're great, Karla!

Lea said...

i don't like your combinations.

Emmy said...

I would live in Forever 21 if I had the option. Though the fabric kind of falls apart after a while, who cares, the prices are stellar!

boubou said...

im in love with your dress and your shoes karla :)
i wish you a happy week ;)

Midnight traveller said...

You are going cow tipping?! I'm so jealous. I've always wanted to tip a cow!! (I realise this is a weird thing to want to do). Could post some instructions on how to tip a cow. We couldn't get it right last time and the cow chased us. The other time we couldn't find the cows. I think they knew.

http://www.midnightravel.blogspot.com/

geisharock said...

Karla this is gorgeous, every single detail. I'm definitely going to be taking inspiration from this and wearing tanks with my strapless dresses... why didn't I think of that before?! xoxo

F.A.P. said...

You look like a doll.
Love the entire look.

Karla your haircut is absoloute perfection! I'm a hairdresser in Australia and not a huge fan of short cuts but you have definately opened my mind, it's fabulous, you should shave the side that would ooze even more perfection!

Robby D said...

HAHAHA...Yes, the last post was a Jill ref, as this one. You and I are -here- w/ the music lol.

Okay, lets get into this nail polish- shade and brand? Please enlighten me. I'm so jealous of the cow tipping, a hobby of mine back in the LONE STAR STATE.

HA!

Enjoy Memorial Day.

Anonymous said...

ugh, bubble hems are so 2004. so over it.

and forever21 clothes ARE cheap and also LOOK cheap. the fabric sucks and they are made in sweatshops. being fashionable also means being aware of where the things you purchase COME FROM and whether they are made fairly & ethically. it's not cool to be thoughtless!

just as its not cool to tip cows, or even to joke about animal abuse! so mean.

bisou-joue said...

your dress is very beautiful, moreover i loe the way you wear it, with the tee it's so awesome ! Your shoes are amazing, i love it !
As always you've got a perfect outfit !

or what you would wear to go on a date with your boyfriend

Anonymous said...

you are such a gorgeous girl, and you seem very sweet, so i just thought i should tell you that cow tipping is pretty fucked up. you probably just were trying to be funny, but it's not very funny. it's really mean spirited so i would hope that you reconsider the humour of hurting another harmless living thing.

thanks for reading this, if you did. love, a faithful reader

the shoes are incredible!

PLEASEEE!! I WANT YOU NAIL LAQUER!!

Erica said...

Cow tipping? You know that can give them heart attacks, right? And then the people who own them end up losing all that money they paid to raise them.

I'm disappointed.

Outfit is interesting, but I don't think cowtipping is something to brag about.

Arielle said...

i love those shoes!!

Loving your outfit! It's something simple but yet fashionable.
