Drip Drip Drop

I was organizing my closet this morning when I noticed how many polka dot printed things I own...They seriously take up a good portion of my wardrobe!

Anyway, I decided to wear one of my vintage mini dresses today and it sorted of reminded me of Marc Jacobs' most recent resort collection. Usually I'm not a fan, but I loved this look...
...And here's my polka dot dress....
Worn with custom-fit Levi jacket, Ann Demeulemeester lace-up shoes, Jil Sander mirrored shades, and vintage crystal bracelet. 
Happy Saturday!

Happy Saturday back atcha! And I love how those shades reflect everything. I can see G's shoes (or whoever took the pics) in one of the shots in the reflection of your shades! Oh, and that Marc Jacob model scared me.
And how do you manage to apply your lipstick so perfectly?
Loved this post,

Hey, Karla! I'm an avid reader of your blog, but I hardly comment; I had to make my first comment for this photo! Truly genuine! Love the pop of the lipstick color. How and where were you able to snatch up a pair of those Ann Demeulemeester lace-up shoes?

what a fresh way to style those Ann Ds! (i have the same ones...sometimes i wear them w/ my red & white polka dot Marc Jacobs dress.) aren't they just great shoes.
your mirrored sunglasses are sharp!

FashionCommitted said...

love this look and i am always a fan on polka dots even a little hint here and there

Jaclyn said...

always been a big fan if yours. love your classic yet edgy style. your most gorgeous accessory, i think, is your crystal bracelet! :) its makes such a huge statement. and your levi's jacket goes with everything! love it! :)

not a fan of the shoes. sorry.

jamie-lee said...

you're wearing your gorgeous ann d's!! I have been on the hunt for some of those for too long now i think. you look lovely, and fierce x

beautiful and eye catching, love the lipstick :D

nashthinks said...

I totally adore polka-dots, and I cannot be without my jean jacket; so props to you. I love the glasses, and the shoes are super unique.

I think you apply lipstick amazingly. I've seen teachers apply, and it's like watching an elephant bathe itself in mud; not very pretty!

But why that colour?

Thanks, Nash!

I love that this print is back in style. My mom's bridesmaids dresses were this exactly print and color combo in 1976.

beautiful outfit and awesome dress!

La Petite Anglaise said...

Firstly I am SO with you, there is just nothing in the world more satisfying than a good old wardrobe organisation session. Maybe that makes me a very sad person but whatever, you always come across discarded old favourites that you fall in love with all over again. This outfit is perfection, the beaten up Levi jacket and Ann Dm lace-up sandals add a cool edge to the adorable polkadot dress. Your blog is always one of my favourite reads and I am in awe of your wardrobe. X

Zoe said...

Amazing alert!
Here's why:
- I don't like polka-dots
- I don't like white shoes
But irregardless, I do enjoy this creation, particularly the full fig lips and Terminator-esque sunnies.
Right on,

Karla,
I love the way you dress. I really do, been a fan since you had bangs back in 2008, however, these last photos...

You and polka dot dresses, holding on to your dress. I'm sorry, but I hate the fact that you're trying to pose. Please be yourself. I love you!

I could really see you in the Marc Jacobs look, the bare midriff reminds me of the grey vintage dress you posted a while ago which has to be one of my favourite dresses of yours. I can't remember which post it was but I fell in love with the dress.

Karla, I love how you funked up this relatively twee mini dress with your denim jacket. You could teach a master class on the necessity of the jean topper. I love how elements of this look whisper of fall (the dark lip, the brown dress), but it still screams summer. Lookin' good girl, lookin' good.

The dress is cute but it doesn't fit- throwing a denim jacket over it doesn't hide that it's pulling at the hips. It's also too short.
