The Friday Review: The Audrey dress from Karina Dresses

When Karina Dresses asked me to become a brand ambassador, there were a number of things which immediately attracted me to the company. The first was that every dress is handmade in Brooklyn, New York. The second is that the dresses are designed to suit all body shapes and sizes and, finally, the material is especially chosen to be easy to travel with – which means no more ironing – hoorah!

After following the “best fit” guide on the website, I chose the Audrey dress, which is designed to suit “triangle”-shaped bodies. As I’m quite petite, I went for the XS size (remember the American sizing if buying from the UK).

All of the fabrics are limited edition and I chose the ladybug design – red dots on a black background.

When it arrived I instantly loved the shape of it – a sleeveless dress, with a v-front and back – as it’s very flattering. I had been a bit worried about the length, as I’m quite short, but it came just below my knee and the full swirl skirt feels very feminine.

I took it on a weekend away and the fact that it can be thrown into a case without worrying about creasing it is a definite plus for me. This is one item which will definitely make it into my backpack on my next trip!


A big thank you to Karina Dresses for the dress. All views are my own.
