Rainbow Brite

I wore this dress for a couple hours back in November when I was in New York, but ended up changing because it was too cold. The weather was really nice today so I thought I'd bring it out of my closet!
This dress fits me perfectly! The only small issue is that it sometimes constricts my lungs which leads to shortage of breath, but that's ok I don't really mind, who needs to breathe anyway?
Worn with antique earrings and bracelet, Roberto Cavalli snake cuff, Super sunglasses, old Moschino belt, and Givenchy strappy sandals. 

Take care guys!

Absolutely Mrs. K said...

that is what i call a dress!!! and that is all i am going to say! no, i have to say more. what thrilling and exuberant colors. the black and the neon looks extraordinary. and you are so right, it fits you perfectly, especially around your lungs. the length and the movement are perfect, i would look around if i saw you passing by. love the black shoes, so hard to make black sandals look elegant in the summer. but the best part are the big bold over the top jewelry. have to keep that in mind: big earrings and short hair are a fabulous combination. the whole look makes me think of Frieda the artist, don't know why!! please don't get me wrong, i mean this as a compliment...

june said...

This dress is super beautiful
Ciao,

LOL at "Who needs to breathe anyway?" . . . well between you not breathing and my heart palpitations with these frequent updates (-squeals-) we'll both be members of the nonbreathing society. LOVE this dress and I've been on the look out for something like it as far as cut and length. Have been so unlucky. I also adore the bracelet. I've got a snake ring on it's way to me now that I can't wait to introduce to my awkwardly long fingers.

On another note, =( now i'm sad. I want a pretty, dress like this to frolic in.

Karla, you look gorgeous beyond words. No doubt you are one of the best-looking bloggers out there. That dress is so beautiful. There are just some things (e.g. comfort)we have to sacrifice in order to look fantastic, but be a little careful with that dress lest you pass out coz of shortage of breath. :)

Stacy Ann said...

You definitely look stunning in this dress. I have a question for you, maybe you could write about in your post. Do you sometimes think about environment when you buy things? You have a lot of clothes, shoes and jewelry. Do you think it's a good idea to own so many things? I have quite a lot stuff too and now I usually try not to buy so much and ask myself, if I really really need it. :)
