A New Year

I've had this dress sitting in my closet for quite awhile and finally had a place to wear it to on  New Year's Day. When I first saw this dress, the shape of it reminded me a little bit of Rodarte, don't you think? Here are some more photos...
Worn with Balenciaga sandals from Satine Boutique, vintage rings and YSL clutch.

It feels very ethereal and whimsical. The shoes and accessories really sets it together with the black piping and the straps.

Ylenia said...

I love, love, love your shoes!!! the dress is quite an unusual choice for NYE but I guess it also depends on what you are doing, the weather/temperature and season, right?

anyway you are amazing!!

While I don't visit "KARLA'S CLOSET" often, I do admire your amazing style. No better word can describe the dress you're wearing- it is an amazingly beautiful dress. The sandals are surely chic and edgy, but without overdoing it. So I'd say this look is sugar and spice. Sugar and spice that results in a very sweet outfit!

That is a very beautiful dress - I could imagine that the gauzy top layer has the potential to make it look quite eerie (might need some mist and shadows for that though!) The colour suits you wonderfully. I noticed that you were included in the Grazia UK 'Style blogger it list 2011' recently (I was also on the selection of eight bloggers) - thought I would let you know if you hadn't already seen it.

Margaret Lewis said...

W.O.W. You look stunning. In the first pic, what immediately came to mind was Audrey Hepburn and I think you resemble her. Not because you mimic her style or look like her but because you stay so true to your own style and what makes you feel beautiful, not what others think is stylish or beautiful. Audrey was iconic because she was different. I think people have forgotten that. Thank God for people like you who keep things interesting and fresh. You are so different. I think thats why you are so successful. I admire your fearlessness in fashion. :)

This dress is quite reminiscent of Rodarte, specifically a few of the dresses that they did for their Target collection with lace overlay. I like the shoe pairing with this dress, adds a bit of an edge. Some sweet Mary- Janes would also look great if you wanted to go for a super sweet look.
