Hello everyone, I am feeling fabulous! It is just about fall here in Michigan, the leaves are turning, the weather is cooler and apple cider is being sold at our local orchards. Fall is my favorite time of year so I am looking forward to having a fantastic season.
Today, I am reviewing the Karina Dresses Nora Dress in On Point print. Karina Dresses newest collection, Style Academy, features fall perfect prints in crisp bright colors that are great for back to school, days at the office, casual time out and all occasions. I chose the Nora Dress in On Point print because I absolutely adore novelty prints and the Nora is such a classic, comfortable style. The Nora Dress features a wrap bodice, banded waist, shirred shoulders, gathered back, pockets and a full skirt. I love this style, it is super flattering and curve creating. I am wearing the Nora Dress in On Point print in size XXL, fit is perfect. Stretchy but flattering with a nice flow to the skirt. The top is flattering and modest, the shirred detailing at the shoulders is a pretty and feminine touch that gives the dress a unique retro feel. The banded waistband emphasizes the waist giving a curvy silhouette. Length hits me a few inches below the knees, I am petite at 5'2" so this dress is a bit longer on my short frame. The Nora Dress also features pockets, an incredibly thoughtful addition that makes this already great dress even better. I love having pockets in my dresses so I have the option when I am out to carry a purse or leave my purse at home and carry my necessities in the pockets.
This new Karina Dresses signature print, On Point, is a fun twist on the retro novelty print featuring pop art pencils in white and yellow on a bright blue background. I love novelty prints because they are so fun to accessorize, this On Point print would be especially great for teachers or students. I had a lovely time shooting these photos at the Gaffield School House at the Montcalm County Heritage Village in Sydney, Michigan. This historic one room school house made the perfect backdrop to showcase this scholarly pencil print. I accessorized my Karina Dresses Nora Dress with a white vintage hat, matching vintage hoop earrings in yellow, bangles in yellow and white, white beaded vintage purse, a white cardigan, classic black and white heels and a shiny apple brooch. It was such a fun dress to style, I love that you can play with the different colors and put together themed outfits. I was going for a pretty teacher style look, I imagined myself as a teacher from a bygone era welcoming my students back.
Karina Dresses microfiber material is stretchy but with structure so it fits your curves without clinging in an unflattering way. As with all Karina Dresses, this Nora Dress is hassle free, the microfiber material requires no maintenance and does not wrinkle so you can roll, fold, pack or even wad this dress in a ball and it will look as if it is brand new out of the package. This dress is so vintage perfect, it reminds me of the effortlessly stylish day dresses of the 1940's era, a classic design that will never go out of style. Chic on it's own or styled with a cozy cardigan, the Nora Dress is versatile and fun to wear. Fabulous signature prints, effortlessly stylish designs and hassle free material, Karina Dresses will always keep you looking sharp!
