I am a big fan of dark florals all year round. They’re sophisticated without being staid, and they lend themselves well to pattern mixing. All this by way of saying: I forgot to choose a new Karina Dress for January’s First Monday Giveaway! So I am repeating one of my favorites, the Rita in Navy, and I updated it for the cooler weather.
The Rita dress is always smooth and easy to wear and accessorize. As with all Karina dresses it’s made with love in Brooklyn, USA. I can crush it into a ball in an overnight bag and it looks perfect the next day. It’s never seen a dry cleaner’s door – always machine wash and hang to dry.
Today I felt like Doc Martens (sim) on my feet – an edgy counterpoint to my ladylike dress. Actually Docs go with everything, and these are worn regularly with dresses or jeans. The pearl and tassel necklace (sim) is thrifted, as is the Tahari suit jacket (sim). Somehow the trousers to the suit have shrunk and had to go to the charity shop. That shrinking trouser thing has to be addressed.
And, enter to win a Karina dress of your choosing. The winner will be selected at random on January 8, 2016. Just follow this link to enter the giveaway, open through January 7th:
