Scribbled Bubble

You are probably all tired of hearing us west-coasters complain about the heat waves we're experiencing here in California, but seriously it's really intense. This is a really quick outfit post of what I wore today to run errands and spend time with myself... I actually really love spending time with myself.   
I'm wearing a vintage silk bubble dress that has cutesy scribbles all over it... It used to be a really long dress, but I hemmed it shorter. I also wore my Giuseppe Zanotti platforms, Coach clutch, and vintage rhinestone earrings.

I can't believe this is a vintage dress. What a great find. I wish I found those more often. You look very glamorous! I actually didn't know you were in CA. Where exactly? Everyone talks about Fall fashions and we are having the hottest days in San Francisco :)

Sandy said...

Oh i love the dress and your clutch!! =)

Chantelle said...

Karla, you look so wonderful. What a beautiful lady-like appearance you have going on today. The colors complement your skin beautifully. I was going to say. "ohhh I'm so jealous you're in a heat wave, zomg" but I'm quite enjoying our crisp fall in Toronto. I got to wear wool skinny pants, and a biker jacket tonight - chilly evenings ftw.

Your shoes look too SMALL your toes are falling off the edge!!! Does NOT look attractive. Is it because your shoes are secondhand and you tried to squeeze your foot in a too small of shoe?
