Holiday Gift Guide Karina great dresses for the holiday season, #frockstar

 I just love Karina Dresses they are the best dresses out there made for anyone from ages 18-80! Yes everyone looks great in a Karina dress, Here are some of the Karina styles I have worn, Marisa, Megan, if you are looking for a dress that will complement any shape at any age a dress from Karina Dresses is what you are looking for. Use the code SIMS30.  it’s good for $30 off any full price dress purchased. Here is a little more information about the owner, and this great company:

In 2007, Karina Cousineau  launched a little dress company from her home in Upstate New York with the vision of creating dresses for every woman. After working in production and design, Karina felt there was a real need for a fashion line that makes every “body” feel and look great, no matter what shape or size. 

She believes in the innate beauty of women when they accept and love themselves as they are.   Handmade in New York City from limited edition fabric, Karina Dresses are both classic and fashion-forward. Through an ongoing dialogue with store owners and clients, Karina creates a feeling of a custom collection with great attention to fit, quality and style. Additional features of the dress also speak to the special needs of customers seeking travel and maternity clothes.
There are so many dresses that I just love from the site, some great holiday wear, here are a few of my favorites:

 Adrienne Gold Spash

This dress reminds me of a beautiful gold present, just a lovely holiday color.  

Gala 3/4 sleeve Python Print
Isn't this just lovely, the wrap dress, with just the right neck plunge would be great for a New Years eve party, you could dance all night long with this dress I'm sure! 

Penelope 3/4 sleeve Purple Plad

I love the plaid, it just seems so warm and cozy ready for a comfortable holiday family get together.

I was very fortunate to be able to review a great holiday dress, a Ella dress from Karina

Are you looking for a great holiday dress, with the holidays right around the corner, each holiday is filled with family get togethers that are full of fun and food. All of the delicious treats and delectable goodies. Cakes pies, cookies chocolate and much more. Even if you do not have a sweet tooth there are still so many things to eat. What does this lead to? Well a holiday weight gain.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a dress that would look great for the holidays and if you gain a few pounds due to the festivities it is not the end of the world, your dress will still fit? Yes gaining a few pounds and still fitting in a dress would be wonderful! I am happy to say there is a dress company out there that makes dresses that will looking great even after the holiday gain,  Karina dresses! Each of the dresses are made with a unique, silky microblend fabric. The fabric has a great stretch to it, and when they say that a dress can fit many sizes that is the truth!

S/M  fits sizes   4-8
M/L   fits sizes 10 -14
X/L fits sizes 16-20

I was able to check out a great holiday dress (or anytime dress really) Ella in Winter White. White in the winter? Sure why not, I loved the roaring 20’s look of the dress it is just so classy and unique.  The stripes really stand out, and the light blue accents are a great addition to the dress.

I had not issues with being able to “see through” the dress. With white dresses I have had issues in the past with the thinness of the fabric. With Karina dresses you will not have this issue. I love that this dress is wash and air dry (and it dry’s in no time) and wear, no ironing necessary ever ! And no need to dry clean.  I was able to wear this lovely dress at work, and I got an amazing amount of complements. “Such a pretty dress” “Wow that is amazing” is what I heard all day, it made me blush.  I loved the way the dress fit, and the length of the sleeves was great. My office is cold in the winter (they run the air, all year long why I do not know) and I was very comfortable with my arms covered.  This is a lovely dress that I am sure you would love.
So enjoy that extra piece of pie, and don’t worry your dress will still look as great as ever. I won’t tell if you get a dress for Christmas and you may gain a few pounds then want to wear the dress for New Year’s eve.. it will be our little secret!  Because, who doesn’t gain a bit in the holiday season, right? It only comes around once a year, and you can pledge to lose the pounds for your new year’s resolution don’t worry!
 To purchase a dress, shop the site and find a style you love. They have v neck styles, ruffles, high necks, and much more. Just choose the style that works for you, and even though the print may not be available (because they are made in small batches) don’t worry there will be awesome print that they will have that you will love.  Karina Dresses are made right here in the USA! They are made with love in Brooklyn NY
So weather you are 18-80 you will find a great dress that you will love for years to come from Karina. Karina dresses run from $99.00 to $160.00. The Ella dress is on sale (while supplies last) for $99.00 which is a steal for this high quality US-made dress. For the other styles don’t forget to enter the code SIMS30 to get $30 off any full price dress purchased. And enjoy the holidays with your stretchy non form fitting Karina Dress!
