Karina Dress Bronze Leaves Megan: Karina Dress Giveaway!


Hello Ladies!

I realize it is September and in some of the areas you may be experiencing more fall like weather. However, in NC we may not get fall weather until October or so. But lets just call this a pre-fall outfit, a Karina Dress with a pattern of Bronze Leaves.








Every time I think of fall, I think of the trees and leaves, It is really my favorite season. Just enough cool in the air, and beauty all around. In the upcoming months, I just love the rich fall colors in fashion, the reds, greens, burgundy and browns. I chose this dress from Karina, and it is the Megan, a great 40’s style vintage look/cut that I am quite fond of.

When I think of autumn leaves, I also think of music. Being in a jazz program in college, the song, Autumn Leaves, was not only a favorite, but one I played on my jazz guitar for my senior performance. It has been covered by many jazz greats, and even if you don’t know the tune, I am sure you will love the melody.

Listen to it HEREย Played by jazz great, Joe Pass, one of the many I studied while in college.

This fit is so lovely, the bottom of the dress is great for swinging and adds a fuller touch. The V neck and short flirty sleeves are just so indicative of dresses of this era. I just need some stockings ( they were a high commodity then!) and my hair back in a hair bow, and viola! The leaves in the dress, are brown, bronze and copper, and I chose this pattern as I thought it would look good with my hair color. I added a real leaf copper necklace, and copper leaf earrings I bought in Asheville, NC, a place known for their artists. My woven bronze flats are super comfy and went well with the dress too. I know my bag isn’t getting the attention it deserves, as I was too busy dancing for the camera! ( probably why I am laughing like a goof ball in one pic).

Karina Dresses offer a great way to check how a dress would fit you giving you a FIT GUIDE based upon your shape. Check out the FIT GUIDE HERE

Anyway, wanted you to have a look and listen at pre-fall. Hope you enjoyed ‘Autumn Leaves” in fashion and in music!

Have a wonderful day!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog Jess! I just joined your giveaway and hope I win!! I’ve been seeing Karina dresses on a few bloggers and I’m so much interested in it. Everyone looks great it in and flatters their body very well, regardless of shape, height, etc.

    I love your choice of style and print. You’re already fit and in great shape so the dress looks fab on you! Especially loving a couple of your playful poses!

    A lovely transitional dress Jess, great for summer-into-fall clothes. This colour is autumnal and suits you perfectly, fabulous with the leaf accessories. I’ll check out Karina dresses now.

    I’m lovin’ NC! September is still summer to me till the 23rd. Why rush into fall (although I do love fall). Today is a sunny, warm day in Southern Ontario.
