A Red Dress, White Flowers, and Black Polka Dots

I think it’s safe to say that I love the color red. Red lipstick, red nail polish, red accessories- you name it, I love it. But for some reason, there’s a lack of this darling color in my wardrobe, and with spring around the corner it’s about time I incorporated more of it into my attire.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you know that I have a soft spot for the Megan Dress from Karina Dresses, so when I saw this baby the bright red Cosmo print, I knew I had to have it!


Karina Dresses was founded on the idea of creating high-quality dresses that allow women of all sizes to feel beautiful in their own skin. On top of that, they’re made right here in the U.S. Not only do they embrace the vintage vibes of the 1940s, but they combine them flawlessly with modern styles.


The Megan Dress 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 Cosmo print is a Karina Signature print– and one of my favorite ones thus far! This bold red is the perfect background for the pops of white and black throughout the dress. This color combination lends itself to any and all kinds of accessories, making it an extremely versatile print. But the Cosmo print is just one of several signature designs available in the Megan Dress and countless others.


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.


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.

  1. Yesss, I love Karina Dresses! A lot of the styles they produce work really well for mamas too, whether pregnant or breastfeeding, and that makes them even better! It’s so hard to find retro-looking dresses that can also be worn through all stages of life, but they nail it every time.

    You look beautiful!

  2. Love the vintage vibe of your whole look. Not many people wear flowers in their hair anymore unless they are on a Hawaiian vacation. Let’s bring it back!
