Subject: Your dresses are magic, apparently!
Hi Karina team–
I recently bought my first-ever Karina dresses–the Rosebloom Gala wrap and the Ruby in navy with large white dots. Now, I have worn a lot of clothing in my life, and I can tell you that almost nothing has gotten the reaction these dresses have gotten.
“You look like a Hollywood movie star!” my acupuncturist said when I showed up in the Ruby on Thursday. This is not a woman given to gushing.
Today, I flew from Denver to Boston in the Rosebloom gala wrap. Two TSA agents, one flight attendant, and one Boston police officer all stopped me to compliment my dress. A woman working at Sephora wanted to know exactly where I had bought it and what it was called: “I need to have it,” she said. Another woman who worked there watched me walk by and said: “The pedicure, the lipstick, the sundress? Yes! More of that!”
Probably 10 other people either looked at the dress and smiled, or said something nice about it. Three different woman (including the woman at Sephora) told me how much they loved the neckline.
As I say, I’ve worn a lot of clothes in my life and I’ve never experienced anything like this. There was something about the dress that seemed to make people genuinely happy–like they were glad it existed in the world.
So, apparently, people love your dresses.
On a personal note, this was an especially nice experience for me. I’ve been dealing with some medication/thyroid issues over the past year, and in the last 12 months I have gained 18 pounds, lost it, gained it again, and am now slowly losing it once more. I bought your dresses because I’ve grown out of most of the clothes in my closet, but yet don’t want to commit to a bigger size. (I’m also hoping to get pregnant as soon as I get my health in order.)
I had no idea it was possible to make a dress that fit multiple sizes…..AND make it flattering at any of those sizes. I love that, no matter what size I am 6 months from now, your dresses are going to be able to take the journey with me.
Plus they pack easily, don’t take up much space, are comfortable and look presentable….they’re an all around hit.
Thanks for making these beautiful, practical things–looking forward to collecting more!
