The Perfect Silk Dress

I am always on the hunt for easy-to-wear dresses to cinch with waist belts or pair with dark tights. Love this dress-- been wearing it all week, even as a robe!
Wore my dress with a vintage gold seashell belt, Elizabeth Taylor necklace, and Melie Bianco clutch.

Such a beautiful dress. I recently rediscovered the dress area of my fave thrift store and have been dress hunting it's tons of fun. And in my opinion one can never have too much silk. And those shoes are to die for they look so practical and comfortable.

Ohmanitslisa said...

I feel the same way about finding those easy to wear dresses. I just thrifted a few today myself! Can't wait to try them out.

You look wonderful as always, Karla. I always look forward to your posts!

How very sexy in a sixties-silver-screen-siren kind of way!!

Rudi said...

Your hair looks so glam when it's wavy!! All you'd need is a tiny bit of hair gel and maybe a bobby pin or two and you'd look straight out of the 20s!

love, rudi

You look stunning. The dress is gorgeous. It gives you a very sophisticated and classic look. I really like the color.

Your legs are incredible. Anyone who has something negative to say about her legs don't even bother coming to this blog anymore.

Love the photography, especially photos 2 and 3.

Your wavy hair goes perfect with this outfit, I think. It reminds me of flapper hair, which is not a bad thing I promise. I envy you, my long hair is my security blanket

Anonymous said...

I've been loving the muted tones you've been wearing. So lush and elegant and flattering to your coloring.

This dress is beautiful and nonsense about the hair--your waves are adorable.
