There’s nothing quite like fall, especially here in New England: multicolored leaves, apple picking, pumpkin patches and plaid, plaid, plaid! This wondrous season is just around the corner and I’m celebrating its arrival with this stunning Megan Dress in Harvest Florals from Karina Dresses.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that I have a severe weakness for anything that emulates the sophisticated style of the 1940s, and Karina Dresses has never disappointed to meet my standards.
The Megan Dress, in particular, is the epitome of 1940s style. It closely emulates the design of the classic wrap dress from that time, which was typically worn by working women. While some wrap dresses wound around the entire body, others crossed exclusively around the bust, as seen on the Megan. The sleeves have a slight puff at the shoulder, but slide halfway down the arm into a deep cap design. The bodice tucks in the waist and slowly curves outward for a signature A-line skirt.
The Harvest Floral print is part of the Karina Signature line of in-house designs, along with over ten other equally beautiful patterns. The navy background of this dress changes to a muted green from afar, but look closely and that blue shines bright. The gold flowers provide a beautiful contrast to the navy and perfectly emulate the color of fallen leaves.
In addition to being beautiful, the Megan is incredibly comfortable, which is something that founder Karina Counsineau strives to accomplish with every dress made. Part of the reason I love Karina Dresses, aside from their gorgeous designs, is that their mission is to produce dresses right here in America for women of every size, shape, and age.
Karina Dresses come in US sizes XS-XXL. Each size has a range of measurements, for example I’m wearing the S/M, which corresponds to a 34-38 bust and a 27-31 waist. If you’re unsure which size would work for you, try their Best Fit Size Guide!
The Megan dress is priced at $108, as are all of Karina Dresses’ fabulous garments. In my opinion, this is an absolutely fair price for such a beautiful and versatile piece. They ship for free within the U.S. for orders over $150, but for those under that price point it’s only $5. Shipping internationally will range from $20-25 depending on the location.
