I’ve been wearing them for years, and there’s just nothing to compare to a Karina dress: for ease of wear, flattery, effortless care, pack-ability and just plain feminine beauty. I love everything about this company, from their designs to their founder’s wonder-dog, Bodhi. Karina dresses are made in the USA, with love. They flatter all our different body shapes and sizes, and are supremely adaptable to our personalities.

Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Please be kind and leave a link to Not Dead Yet Style in your post.

This is the Margaret Dress, my new favorite Karina dress (every time I try one it becomes my new favorite). This one made my husband’s eyes pop – he doesn’t always notice what I wear – and I got a “Wow!” The Margaret has a modest crossover neck that flatters and allows for a cool necklace (mine was thrifted). The Margaret is slightly longer hem than many Karinas, and I love that – so graceful with the swirly cut of the skirt. Love this new green and blue print too; it reminds me of some deco designs.

I get a wonderful 1940’s vibe from the Margaret, so I wore my vintage style peep-toe wedges (sim).

This great dress is definitely coming to New York City with me next month – perfect for wearing on the plane. Two vintage bracelets add some sparkle.

    • You know, I’ve seen blogs that remove the URL. While it deters spammers, it also deters me from being able to find out more about a person who left a comment on the site. Sure, if you have access to their email, you can contact them that way. But what if you were reading a comment without a URL and you thought “Ooh, I love that perspective that John Smith has, but now I’ll never know who he is or if I can learn more about him.”

  17. That dress looks great on you, Patti. I’ve yet to get myself a Karina dress. But it’s on my list. I do love the vintage vibe to their designs. Super flattering and they look so comfy!

  18. There’s nothing better than a dress to beat the heat! This one looks great on you Patti, effortlessly chic!

  19. I love how every new Karina dress becomes your favourite! I love mine – that I won from your previous competition – and wear it often. Have a super week x

  20. I love the Karina dresses. I wish they had more without self-belting and bright strong colors or just solid.

  21. Really like the dress, particularly the length – it’s so hard to find a good below the knee length and they’re so much more flattering.

  22. Love the dress- and that it’s long enough! I just spent the afternoon on a summer dress hunt and 90% of them were too short! Guess I need to check out Karina….

  23. That dress looks beautiful on you!! Just amazing! I’m actually on the lookout for dresses, because I am planning to wear more this summer. I have found two, so far, but hope to find more.

  24. Ohh that dress is soo pretty AND soo feminine! Thank you for a chance to win !

  25. You’ve got the 4C’s of diamonds here: colour, cut, clarity, and cwality. I understand Sandy’s “WOW” comment. I have a Karina dress which I adore. I should wear it again soon.

  26. Love the dress, the color is beautiful! I am so glad to be back to Visible Monday. I’ve been in the process of selling and moving so missed out for a while. Can’t wait to see what everyone is wearing! Peace!

  27. I love this style of dress & actually have a few although not from Karina who I hadn’t heard of until now. Thanks for the introduction Patti, they’re really fabulous!

  28. I’ve never tried a Karina dress, I’ll go explore their website. I see that a lot of people love them in the US. Your green coloured one is so fresh and lovely! xx
