I am back in black and gray again today! What does it mean? This week it means a fabulous Karina Ruby dress, in a lacy print and three-quarter sleeves. And a colorful bangle (similar), and my forever-young Aldo boots (sim; they’ve been re-soled three times).


Announcing! A feature I know you’ll like. Every First Visible Monday of the month, we’ll have a special edition of Visible Monday, sponsored by my friends at Karina Dresses.


The Ruby is a super feminine dress, with a gathered neckline and emphasized waist. The length is perfect for me at 5’6″ and would look great on shorter or taller women as well. As the Karina site promises: The Ruby is an American-made dress crafted with love in Brooklyn, NY. Roll it a ball, shake it out and wear it. This dress works for more formal occasions too – just add some sparkly jewelry and mid-height heels (like these).



My wild hair calms down when it’s cool and dry out. I like it better BIG : >

The Ruby looks great with a bright wrap too. Here I am just seeking warmth against the the brutal 60 degree winter.

  1. This is a lovely dress, so flattering! I haven’t been ‘visible’ for ages, but with this it would be a breeze.

  2. 60 degrees, shush. You and Katrina dresses were made for each other it seems. And boots? Yes, you wouldn’t want to get stuck in all that snow now.

  3. Love Karina dresses and the print on that one is especially pretty! Reminds me of vintage wallpaper.
    As far as the weather, we go through the same thing down here in Fl. If it’s 60 all of us who live here year round are pulling out the coats and boots. The tourists from up north are strolling around in flip flops and t shirts!

  4. If I’ve said it before, then erase the rest of those Karina dresses because this is my all time favorite. It has my two most worn colors, the perfect sleeves and the perfect length. It would be my all time travel outfit! I just might need to be your twin and order this exact dress. I believe I might even pair it with very similar boots, such a fantastic look.

  5. You have so many great Karina dresses. I love this one. I love a good wrap dress. I just wore a wrap dress the other day.

    Happy February Patti!

  6. Beautiful dress with a fit that lets you look fabulous and breathe, always good. Your bracelet and wrap make it even better. Keep warm, hahaha! Thanks for the party on my Monday morning.

  7. This is a classic dress.

    Do you leave the house when it’s only 60 outside? That is 16 C.

    I’d be out in a bikini if it were that warm here!

    Ha! Joking!

    It would be a one piece with a cover-up ; P


    • I know – we always see people on the beach in their bathing suits on days like this (while we bundle up like we’re in Siberia) xo

  8. These dresse I love so much but here in The Netherlands they are so hard to get in a good quality. I also hate it when my hair is not big!

  9. Mondays are becoming my favorite day, look forward to visible Monday starting Sunday night. Thanks!

  10. I would love to win one of their dresses. Thanks for the chance and you look fab!

  11. That is really lovely! I do like Karina dresses- not seen one I wouldn’t want!!! You look lovely. Sorry you are experiencing nasty cold!!! I hope you are ok apart from that!

  12. That’s a very delicate, pretty print, Patti – I like how it contrasts with the darkness of the charcoal colour! Plus the green bangle is lush :))

    Thank you so much for hosting, looking forward to seeing at #iwillwearwhatilike tomorrow! Enjoy the rest of your weekend…!

    Catherine x
