18 Jun Karina Dress Restyle, and Some Guitar
It is that time of year, where we can go and listen to summer concerts. I love sitting on the lawn and just kicking back with a bottle of wine, or other beverages, just enjoying an acousitc guitar player. This is my guitar from many years ago, a Taylor 412, when I went to teach in the South. I had just come out of college, and worked in an area with unfortunate conditions. I had to travel to two different schools, and was put in a trailer when the heat was above 90 and the air conditioners wouldn’t work. I had virtually no supplies, and we are talking instruments here!! I can remember the tambourine having a big, old, punched hole in it, and the marraccas missing their “shake” so to speak, no beads inside to make the sound. So, I bought this guitar and brought it to work in order to sing songs. Let’s just say it didn’t work out. However, I did teach at other schools where I enjoyed teaching music immensely and later decided to teach guitar in studio.
I thought I would “restyle” my Karina Dress in Blue Feathers in the Audrey style, by picking a color that would stand out with the print. I bought this pretty, green cardigan, added some newer rustish-tan colored floral sandals by Clarks, some blue hoop earrings, and an antique greenish-blue necklace. There are many ways to re-style this dress, this is just one way I worked with bringing out the colors in the dress, as their are some brownish tan swirls throughout as well. Hope you enjoyed!
