So I'm kind of falling in love with Karina Dresses. When I receive my new dress each month as part of the Karina Dresses blogging review program, I find myself browsing the website looking for the next month's dress...because I seriously can't get enough of them!
I thought I'd embrace the trend of wearing darker colors for the fall, so I chose a red Audrey dress for this month's review. I love it!
I'm wearing the Karina Dresses Audrey dress for this month's review, and while it's similar to the dress I shared with you guys last month, it's a little dressier and totally makes me want to break out in song!
Lady in Red....
You see why, right? This dress is sexy while still being sophisticated, and fancy without being too fancy.
I love that it has a V neck and a V back; that's something that you don't see every day, right? The knee length makes it appropriate for any occasion, and you can dress it up with heels for a night out, or dress it down with strappy sandals when you want to be a little dressed up for that Saturday morning brunch with the girls!
The material is so soft, and is really flattering for my frame. The Audrey dress is great for triangle, invert triangles, oval, rectangle and hourglass gals because the high waist accentuates the smallest part of your body, and the full skirt hides any hip issues you might have...believe me, this Cuban girl knows all about hip issues!
Karina Dresses are a unique brand in that they design their dresses specifically to flatter certain body types! Like the Audrey dress, each dress in the line is made to make you look your best! There's even a handy body shape guide that helps you find your best fit on the Karina Dresses website!
Audrey Dress Specifics:
- v-front, v-back, full swirl skirt, length to knee
- X/S fits sizes 0-4
- S/M fits sizes 6-8
- M/L fits sizes 10-14
- X/L fits sizes 16-20
Now, I think that Karina Dresses sizing is a little generous. I am 5'2 ¾" and weigh 126 pounds right now, and I fit into a size XS - and I know I am not really a 0-4 size. My first dress shipments were size S/M, because I normally wear a 6, and they fit me but were a bit loose. If you like your clothes to hug your body and are at the low end of the sizing guide, I suggest considering going a size smaller.
Like all Karina Dresses, the Audrey dress is machine washable and you simply let it hang to dry. Don't throw it in the dryer - and because Karina Dresses NEVER WRINKLE, there's no ironing needed! Yay!
The Audrey dress retails for $99, and in my opinion, it's worth every cent! One of my favorite parts of wearing Karina Dresses is that they are all made in Brooklyn - with love, of course.

This dress is stunning on you! I am sad that it's turned colder here and now I have to wait until next year till I can wear them again.

Woah, you look hot! Go on a date with your husband and wear THAT, hot mama!
Beautiful! And we are the same height and weight so now I know what size to get. 🙂
Sexy mama! You look great in red!
I love that dress because the cut of it would look good on a bigger girl like me, but still looks amazing on your skinny little frame! It's hard to find a dress that can suit any body type.
I adore this dress and you totally rock it!!
I haven never heard of this site before, I have to look into it, so few shops sell XS sizes in clothing that is appropriate for a 40 year old!
That is a beautiful dress, and I just love the name! 🙂
Oh I love that dress! It's definitely something I would pick out myself.
You are all about the dresses lately but that is because they look great on you. I love the flow of this dress.
That dress looks gorgeous on you! I keep seeing so many pretty Karina dresses and need to order one. 🙂
That dress was made for you. You look amazing in it!
You look amazing!
I really like this one!
What a gorgeous dress!! You look so pretty in it! This would be great to have for the holidays for all the parties!!!
I love the color & cut of this dress
What a fabulous dress! You look great!
You are beautiful! I love the cut and length of the dress, it's incredibly flattering on you.
That dress would look great on all body types, very flattering.
I am loving the sears clothing! The dress is adorable! You are adorable.
You look amazing in that dress! That seems like a lot of money to me for a dress, since that's what my prom dress cost, but if it made me look that good, I'd buy it!
That is a *great* red dress. I love that the color is a little subdued and not a "look at me, I'm coming into the room and I'm on fire" red. It's something I could wear without feeling self-conscious; I have trouble calling attention to myself. 🙂
