The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Or Best Dress Evah
I will admit it. I am heavily influenced by other style bloggers, especially the ones who always seem to get it right every time, like Bella and Patti. Both of them own Karina Dresses, which I have admired from afar for a long time. This is not a brand I’m likely to stumble upon secondhand. I know, I tried.
Owning a Karina dress was one of the items on my 50+ Style Blogger Bucket List. I’m a frequent visitor to the Karina Dresses online catalog, and what I really longed for was a polka dot print. But sometimes there aren’t any available, and there weren’t any when I shopped the recent sale.
I ordered an Ava (not currently available) but it was too big. I returned it with a note asking to exchange it for one of the other sale styles available at that time, the Megan in a green brown diamond print, or if a Lauren in a small had been returned (there were none available online at the time of the return), I’d prefer the Bateau neckline.
When I opened the package with the exchange dress, I was gobsmacked by the generosity of the Style Fairy and Karina Dresses, who bestowed a Lauren upon me – in a navy print with pale purple polka dots. I’m pretty sure Karina Dresses is staffed with off-season elves turned dressmakers who magically know what naughty and nice ladies want.
I also bought a polka dot maxi skirt on sale from Karina Dresses, and have been running around in it instead of jeans. It’s so comfortable. Neither the dress or skirt wrinkles, no matter what you do, and the fabric is soft but has a nice weight to it.
Karina Dresses, I am a big fan. I’m fantasizing about my next Karina Dress, with complete confidence that y’all get me.
I’m also showing off the magical dress at Not Dead Yet Style. I hope you’ll go and check out the many cool and real peeps showing off great style – at any age.
