40's Inspired Retro Style

Location: Redwood City Train Station & Historic Downtown District
I am so excited to collaborate with Karina Dresses on this post today! Did you know you can get an instant 15% off by simply signing up for the Karina Nation mailing list?  That's a great way to save! The hardest decision will be picking your favorite style!  

I opted for the "Audrey" dress in a black palette with neutral polka dots.  I really love the retro inspired fit and who doesn't love polka dots?  The Audrey dress is a sleeveless, knee-length dress with a v-neck front and back.  I chose to style it with a classic trench coat, black bow high heels, and my favorite red lipstick!  I kept to a classic neutral palette but I also plan to wear it again with fun punches of color!  Wouldn't it look darling with this clutch, these red high heels, and this coat?  I really think the style possibilities are endless!   

  All of Karina's dresses are American made and crafted with love from Brooklyn, New York.  There is a perfect fit and style for all shapes and sizes.  In fact, if you already know your body shape, it's a breeze to shop for the perfect dress.  Just select your body shape on their home page (e.g. hourglass, oval, triangle, etc.) and a list of suggested dresses will be displayed for you!  It can't be easier than that!

I would like to thank Karina Dresses for sponsoring this post!
