I’ve been wearing Karina Dresses for six years, and I’m still crazy for them: for comfort, flattery, ease of care, and personalized service. I love everything about this company, from their designs, to their ethics, and to their founder’s wonder-dog, Bodhi.
Karina dresses are “made in the Hudson Valley of New York, with love“. They flatter all our different body shapes and sizes, and are my go-to travel pieces. Karina Dresses is not fast fashion. They’re an ethically-sourced company that creates jobs for locals and gives generously to charities.
Today I’m swanning around in the Margaret Dress in Bonjour Blue. The three-quarter sleeves make this a year-round dress in the South. This swingy dress works for more dressy occasions too – just add some sparkly jewelry and mid-height heels. And one of my favorite things about packing a Karina dress: roll it in a ball, shake it out and wear it. You can wash them in the machine or the hotel sink, hang to dry and never iron. (What is “iron?”).
This terrific dress is part of the new Karina Moody Blue Collection. Go over there and check them out.
Your accessories change up the look of a solid-color dress. Today I added a favorite bead necklace, crafted by my friend Suzanne Carillo. (Check out her fab vintage shop here). My Doc Martens boots in cognac add color and funk. In the Spring/Summer I’ll wear this dress with bare legs and wedge sandals.
