What’s you most recent awesome accomplishment? I set the goal to make 13 things in 2013 and I finished it, by making dresses for myself, my daughter and costumes for the family!
Who is your hero? My Mom- She has always been there for my family, whether it’s making a costume, or coming up with a great idea for a project. I would also say my Husband – Mike. He’s giving it a go as a Stay at Home Dad and really getting out there and doing stuff with the kids. I’m one lucky lady!
Who are your style inspirations? I love the 1950’s style of clothes and try to find era pieces that fit my body and style. Also, nothing is better then twirling in a circle skirt or dress, if brings the child out in me and makes me smile.
Why is it important to love our bodies? I discovered that worrying about losing that 5-10 pounds did nothing but add stress to my life, and didn’t make me feel any better about myself. One day I looked in the mirror and said “I look good!” and from that day I try to focus on what makes me feel good and I find that life is prettier and I’m happier. Which makes me look even better!
If you could give your 16 year old self advice, what would you say? Don’t worry so much about the future, live life and have fun!
Do you have a favorite quote? If so, what is it? A girl without freckles is like a night without stars!
Favorite Karina dress (if you have one): Anything with polka dots!
