This is one sweet dress.
My Favourite Karina Dress
is the Ruby XS Black & Peach Vintage floral.
I didn’t think I’d like the faux wrap but I love it. No worries about possible wardrobe malfunctions.
It fits perfectly thanks to the forgiving stretchy poly knit.
Also the fact that I can pop it in the washer any old time means pug hair isn’t an issue.
This dress has been Zoë approved.
It is more comfortable than yoga pants or shorts.
I’ve gotten compliments every time I’ve worn it… bonus!
I will add that I hand tacked a little bit in the chest area where it drapes just to make extra sure there was no chance of overexposing myself.
Pop-ups on blogs are annoying but pop-outs on dresses are unacceptable.
Janet Jackson I am not at this stage in life.
Back in the day (aka a really long time ago kids) when I wore dresses without bras and went out dancing at bars I did experience the dreaded pop-out wardrobe malfunction.
I was wildly dancing wearing this non bra friendly dress with a racer back and very large arm hole openings. Beware of large armhole openings when going braless! Unless your chesticles are very well trained they may try to escape!
The girlfriend I was dancing with at the time didn’t say anything to me, she just laughed and laughed. Nice right? I had no clue why everything was suddenly so funny. I thought she just really loved my awesome dance moves. Finally after a few minutes she managed to regain her composure and pointed with a jabbing finger at the “escapee”. By that time a small area on the dance floor had cleared around me and people had started throwing money. Ha ha! Not. But it was awkward. So awkward that I had to immediately go and down three shots at the bar. Not awkward enough to make me leave though. Oh no. It was too early for that my friends! Priorities people! My dance card was filled the rest of the night from that moment on.
A person cannot make up stuff like this.
Thank heavens this was before mobile phones! I shudder thinking about someone capturing that moment on their iPhone, posting it online and making gifs or memes with it.
“Finally I can breathe!”
“So this is what it looks like on the outside!”
“They love me, they really love me!”
Now I take precautions. Everything needs to strapped down and locked up.
Enough about my wild youth.
Truly all I did was stay at home, drink herbal tea and read.
Just ask my Mom.
(Don’t forget the $10 I slipped you for Mother’s Day Mom. I told you there were strings attached!)
Now that summer has shown up I’m wearing this with some little black sandals and my sunhat. Unlike when I was in Tunisia I no longer sun bathe or go braless. Some things do change when you get older and wiser.
