Karina dress Patti Style: florals!


Hello Ladies,

This is one of those dresses, like most of the Karina dresses, that I find very comfortable, and fits my body type. The Patti, which is a dress with rust, brown and navy flowers really caught my attenttion, certainly for the colors, but also for the straight pencil skirt style, the sheath dress, something I hadn’t tried from #Karina before. I will be posting on Asheville the rest of this week!








I wasn’t so sure that the Patti would work on me, as I am an “ice cream cone”, or an “inverted triangle” when it comes to shape. Slightly broader shoulders and narrow waist and hips.Karina  offers a FIT Guide, and one can find what dress works well for her.

When I saw this dress, I loved the colors, as the pumpkin, rust, browns, and olive really reminded me of fall. I took a chance. I thought it may fit me, and I have say it probably is one of the best fitting dresses.

So many ways to wear this dress with a rust or navy cardi over top, perhaps if trendy is your thing, the fur vest in a mid light brown. A blazer will dress up a skirt or dress, so any color within this palette could also create another look.

I love that it has pockets, and that this Patti dress, is a year round dress. The material is not too heavy , but rather midweight, which will enable me to wear it year round. Next time I wear it, I will create an unexpected look for y’all.

Don’t forget to register to win dresses from #Karina with the company’s November Giveaway HERE.

Also, Karina has this dress on #Modcloth, and if you check out my styling there, I would love it if you like my outfit, to say so on the styling picture via heart or FB etc. You can go to my linky on the Giveaway page to see it on #Modcloth as well. Check it out HERE

Thank you so much!!

I have much to tell you about the #Asheville Film Festival, and will be able to share my weekend this week with you, so stay tuned!

Have a great week!!

    I love cut of this dress! It’s the type of cut I go for as it suits me too. My height means I find it hard to find dresses that fit right – they seem to be all made for ladies that are 5ft 4!

    Dear Jess,
    first I want to say that I’m happy to come across your blog (via share in style). I really like your sense of fashion and what you have wrote about suffering from a chronic illness. I myself am diagnosized with Chron and up to now it has never been in remission- so I know what you mean about having both good and bad days- but we must make the most of the good ones…and in some ways, perhaps it makes us appreciate life more! Just wanted to let you know I was moved by what you wrote in about me section.

    I don’t think heels are a must…my mum always wears flats, I think it’s because she is taller than my dad- and she always has such amazing flats and boots- I almost want to steal them!

    Finally, to comment on the outfit. You look very elegant, sophisticated and feminine…wonderful look!

      Thank you so much Ivana for stopping by and reading my blog. It means much to me when people go to the About me, to learn more about me, or the blogger. Yes, I have done better and improved in some ways with this illness, certainly from 6 yrs ago. I can empathize with you and know it can be difficult to deal with. You sound like you have a great spirit as well, as having a positive attitutde, when possible helps.
      My husband has told me recently that I am Obsessed with boots! As I have bought a few pair this year, what can I say, I can wear many styles. I agree, I dont miss heels that much, sometimes, but there are pretty flats and kitten heels as well. Thank you for the lovely comments and again, for stopping by, I will as well this week! jess xo
