Visble Monday #144: Karina Dress Giveaway

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

Karina will provide one of her of-the-moment designs for me to model, and keep. And they’ll give away a Karina dress to a lucky winner in the giveaway below. Good times.

This dress is the Patti. It’s not named for me, but I am claiming it as a new favorite. It’s a retro-styled sheath with a fitted waist, straight skirt and pockets. Pockets on everything, I say. Machine wash and hang to dry, never a wrinkle. Check it out here in other fabulous prints.

The Patti fits like a dream. My silver leaf pendant looks glam against the navy, yeah? I can wear this dress year-round
in Florida, and it’s a perfect three-season dress for most climates.
