When I was young, fresh out of high school and in college, I loved all things girlie. I wouldn't let a warm Southern California day go by without sporting a Summer Dress or a flowy skirt and heels. But, as women know all too well, time is not always so kind to our curves, and sizes and shapes tend to change. My weight has fluctuated quite a bit over the past ten years, and only recently did I drop over 60lbs after a serious health scare. I never was a 'big' girl, but I've never been a 'small' girl either. I have curves, from head to toe, and this can be a difficult fashion hurdle for a 5'11" woman entering her 30s. I still want to be fun and flirty, but I also want to be modest and feminine. And that is how I fell in love with Karina dresses, a brand that truly makes a dress for every body.
That's precisely why I chose to feature the Penelope dress in Seashell for this round of the Karina Frockstar™ Nation events, it's the perfect fit for me inside and out! Made with a lightweight and comfortable poly blend fabric, and available in 4 sizes, with 3/4 sleeves it offers immense versatility here in So Cal. As a full busted woman, I was a little concerned about fitting in the top of the dress, but was happy to see there was ample coverage, and I could just as simply wear a lightweight cami underneath should the event call for it. When I first featured this dress in Purple Plaid it was a little short for my frame. I was pleased to note this fabric and print was very flattering and the extra inches I've lost since then put this Penelope at the perfect length.
