Karina Dresses & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

June 25, 2015
Welcome to this week’s Fun Fashion Friday.  Before we start the fashion fun, I want to thank everyone for the sweet compassionate comments last week.  It really meant a lot to me.

This week I’m excited to be showing off my first Karina Dress! Gee, I kinda feel like the last fashionista on the planet to have one, and now I know why they’re so popular … easy dressing at it’s best!

I picked the “Megan” in a black and white clover print.  It was hard choose just one dress because so many options looked so pretty!  One of my favorite features of Karina Dresses is that they help you pick a dress based on your body type for the best fit.  I totally recommend the “Megan” style for fellow pear shapes. It couldn’t be more flattering.

classic dresses

I love so many things about Karina. All their dresses are machine washable and wrinkle free.  I also noticed that pet hair doesn’t stick to this material … a big plus in my home. And one of my favorite features?  A wrap style top that stays … wrapped!  I never had to fuss with pulling it closed or pinning it.  I’m betting that this pretty number goes into regular teacher rotation once the school year starts again.  

Here I styled the dress with a vintage bag and shoes.  I thought it echoed the classic retro styling nicely.  And by now you all know I’m a sucker for black and white with a pop of red!

    In my experience every woman with the name "Megan" has been just as nice. What a cute name and print on the dress Dawn. There is a sort of retro vibe about this dress as well. How lovely!
