pinkpeas said...

is it me, or is it utterly annoying when someone who posts their comment first have to exclaim that "omggggg i'm the first poster!!?!?" ...

I'm sorry, end rant.
But, I love the color and the print and everything about this. The shape works well on you! :]

mikee said...

do you have a lookbook account? because someone just posted this outfit of yours in lookbook.

Hawa said...

i think what really works to your advantage in these elaborate outfits is your hair...i can so see this going wrong if the hair was overdone...it adds an instant edge....great dress!

Ashley said...

That dress is sick, I love it!! Amazing print and the peplum and peaked shoulders are '80s perfection.
Your hair looks great too, a little darker?

The Barely Tattoo'd Artist said...

With the exception of the shoulders (not too big into poofy shoulders or shoulder pads myself), but I love the dress...the crazy design and unusual color to the fact that it was obviously shortened to make it look better on your frame...

I think next thrifting trip, I might look for a dress like this...won't be able to wear it to work, but I do have two wedding receptions coming up and I think it'd be faux pas to wear one dress to both...

La petite mariah said...

perfeeeect outfit! kiss

Giulia said...

Terroni? why terroni?

WyldeBlossoms said...

WALLPAPER much? You are a pretty, not the skinny waif girl but you are always boundering HIT & MISS. Please stop wearing the strappy gladiators. The only thing this fad gives you is sausage-y legs. Sorry

Hey Karla,

You look good though i feel that the dress clearly gives a real antique feel :)

TheGlamorousEccentric said...

I have to say that when I saw this my heartrate went up a little. The print and fabric remind me of this marni dress but the shoulder pads just made it infinitely cooler. Then the dress just carries this sort of baroque feeling but coupled with your haircut it becomes something entirely new and modern. You have a great and discerning eye and I look forward to seeing what you do in the future!

Gorgeous doesn't spell Karla said...

Oh LOOOORD go back to the picture and scan postings. Sorry honey your fat not like chunky chubby fat. More like HEFFER ugly disgusting fat. How do you even define, know, understand fashion? GO BEHIND THE SCENES more suited to your size 12 isnt it?

Just some ADVICE why dont you throw away those Jeffrey Campbell strap shoes. THEY MAKE YOU LOOK LIKE FRANKENSTEIN. Your calves are MONSTROUS. And quite frankly they do not suit you well. And honestly I would rather not die of shame and post photos like that of such GROSS FAT LEGS.

PROUD TO BE THIN and HEALTHY.

Why not try that for a chance?

marie said...

@karla: i love, love, love your figure and the colour is the best colour you can wear.
@"gorgeous doesn't spell karla": ...! don't lie, please?
