I’m back from a brief hiatus due to health issues and a family visit.
I’m not gonna lie, the internet/instagram/facebook/twitter/blog break was actually quite wonderful. The getting sick part sucked, but hopefully now I’m on the mend…fingers crossed!
I need to get my bloggy mojo back now, so I’m starting out with this boho/polkadot/leopard mix. Nothing like trying to do all the trends at once.
Go big or go boring.
I was gifted this lovely polkadot Karina dress.
I’m happy to promote a North American company where all the dresses are made in Brooklyn, USA by seamstresses earning a living wage. It is so rare to find clothing companies based in North America that are able to survive in this economy of disposable fast fashion.
It is the second Karina dress I own. The first one I won.
I like the fact that this dress has pockets and is a bit shorter than the rust dress.
I’m not as keen on the fabric which is polyester. The last dress was a micro fibre and lycra and wonderfully soft.
The good thing about polyester is that you can roll it into a ball in your suitcase and it’ll come out looking perfect. Plus it can be tossed into the washing machine without issue.
If only they could make polyester breathable.
Someone invent that and then give me 50% of the millions you will earn from it.
Having the idea is important yo.
For me this dress was a bit too “Mom-on-the-go” for me, so I added a bunch of accessories and made it my own.
Most of the items in my closet are already statement pieces, so working with a dress that wasn’t was great fun to style.
I had my Irresistible Me hair extensions in for these photos. They work well with the boho vibe.
