Karina Dresses Trudy in Cobalt!

It’s time for my monthly post featuring the wonderful Karina Dresses, a dress company that stocks such beautiful dresses in sizes 2-22 (UK). I’m definitely the biggest size they stock. I’ve already reviewed the Trudy 3/4, Trudy and two Penelopes, and this time I’m wearing another Trudy – Cobalt with White Micro dots in the size XXL. An XXL should be a 22-24 but obviously converting from the US to the UK and we’ve got a 20-22, my perfect size.

I absolutely love the fit and quality of Karina Dresses, they’re one of the few brands in my wardrobe that actually wear and wash well, plus with no ironing involved it means that they’re a favourite in the house too. Simplistic, effortless, and easy fashion. I so wish they’d expand and cater for bigger plus sizes as these really are such lovely and vibrant dresses that I’m sure would be loved by all.

This particular style is a sweetheart cross over neck with short sleeves and it comes to just below my knee on my 5’3 frame. I love this length because if the wind blows I’m covered, but it seems like it’s going to be such a hot summer that I don’t mind flashing my Chaffree! The dress retails at $108 but think of these dresses as an investment. They are based in the U.S so you’ll have to double check shipping if you’re uk based but they’re definitely worth it. Stay tuned for my third blog anniversary next month where you might be able to win one! Shhhh, it’s still a secret.

  • I love this dress on you! The contrast of the blue with your hair looks so good! I hear you on the no iron thing, anything that you wash and don’t need to iron gets extra points from me!

    You look so beautiful in that dress, I love how your hair colour goes with it so well 🙂

    This dress is so lovely! I’ve been such a sucker for blue with white polka dots, it always catches my eye. It also looks wonderful on you!
