A few weeks ago I was sitting at my desk at work, trying not to fall asleep after a very early start, when an email popped up from Dawn Lucy of Fashion Should Be Fun saying I’d won a Karina dress! Before I had time to open the email my laptop died – maybe it got over excited with the good news! I had to plug it in and wait for it to boot up before I could read the email properly, but it was worth the wait. I’d completely forgotten that I’d entered the giveaway so it was a lovely surprise. Then the difficult part began…choosing one of the many gorgeous dresses at Karina. I have to admit to spending absolutely ages browsing the different styles and pattern options, and as I hadn’t tried anything from the brand before I was unsure of the fit. However, I finally whittled it down to this beautiful red and white spot dress, and it arrived remarkably quickly…all the way from the USA!
I was delighted with the super flattering stretchy fabric. The sizing system is very simple, ranging from XS to XXL. A S/M (which is what I ordered) will fit a U.S dress size 6-10 or U.K 10-14. The dresses are perfect for travelling because they are very lightweight and don’t crease. They are also very easy to care for as they are machine washable, drip dry and never need ironing! I styled mine with simple silver and pearl jewellery, retro style sunglasses, red shoes and a white bag I bought on eBay.
If you have a look at the Karina website you’ll see a gallery of happy customers wearing their dresses, and I bet you’ll recognise a few familiar faces from the blogging community too. Check out Dawn Lucy looking gorgeous in the blue and white spot Nora dress on her blog.
