Holiday With Karina

The holiday season is fast approaching – can you believe it? Soon there will be turkey and pumpkin pie for our neighbours to the south, and as quick as you can say “ho, ho, ho”, we will be listening to sleigh bells ringing, roasting chestnuts on an open fire, and slipping into something with a little extra sass to celebrate the season! We are your fairy godmothers and we are here to help you slay the holidays!

Dress: Karina Dresses

Calling all my plus size perfect babes! Karina Dresses cater to all body types so this little number comes in your perfect size too! See link above!

Now you all know I love my prints, but there is just something to be said for a dress with clean lines, a classic silhouette and a flirty hemline! This Karina dress has all of that in spades! You ever look at your closet and wonder why you bought this or that because you only actually liked it for a blip? Well you won’t do that with this dress. Despite what some people in the fashion industry may try to tell you, trends aren’t everything. There is something to be said for a classic, go to dress that you can wear to multiple events and dress up and dress down as the event requires. 

Allow me to introduce you to this sassy sleeveless velvet number. First of all y’all, I did not have to iron this dress when it arrive in the mail – gasp! Talk about a piece that will definitely be able to travel well! I love the colour as I know it’s one that I will be able to wear from one season to the next. I also love that it’s velvet as it adds some texture to the look!

Let’s talk about this v-neck situation. Ladies, if you prefer classic lines, it’s great to have a v-neckline. It elongates the look of your neck (in a very good way), and provides the perfect place to set a statement piece. When you where a piece with a busy print, it’s not always easy to accessorize (trust me I know). You often have to scale back so the look is not too overwhelming. But with this little dress, oh baby, I get to go all out with my necklaces and dang, don’t it look good! 

You know you need to bring the glitz when it’s the holidays and this dress allows me to go ham with my bling!

 Pretty in pink. That’s the name of this holiday ready look! I’m ready for the office holiday party, and I know I’ll knock their socks off, while still looking perfectly appropriate and like a million bucks doing it!They ain’t ready!:-)

Dress: Karina Dresses

Every woman needs that little black dress that you can reach for in a pinch and feel instantly pulled together and this dress fits the bill!

This dress features a v-neck neckline with empire waist. The velvet just flows over your curves accenting them beautifully. The dress has 3/4 length sleeves for those of you who prefer a little coverage on your arms.

The other HUGE PLUS about this dress is that it doesn’t require any ironing – AMEN because I loathe ironing LOL. So, because this dress made of wrinkle – free velvet, it is pack-able so if you’re traveling for the holidays this dress won’t let you down.

The other cool thing about this dress is you can wear it backwards making it seem as though you have a whole new dress!

I decided to jazz up my little black dress with a delicate rhinestone necklace and bangles. And with that I’m ready for my first glass of eggnog for the season!

And that’s the long and short of it!
