Grace Karin: Evening Wear


Ever notice our bodies continue to change with age? I was a bit of a late bloomer when I was young. At 12, I was my full height of 5’11” and weighed barely 100 lbs. At 17, I finally got some curves, but was still very thin. Except for a quick stint in the “Freshmen 20” in College and my pregnancy, I’ve been able to eat whatever I want and not gain a pound. THEN, 37 hit and holy guacamole! The spare tire has arrived and my wardrobe has evolved.

I can no longer pull off mini skirts (mostly because of my age), crop tops (because of my muffin top) and tight dresses (because sucking in my belly all night is exhausting). It’s just a reality that I have to accept. So, finding the right fit is EVERYTHING and if it pinches, pulls or hits the wrong spot, it’s a major no.


It’s not easy finding cocktail dresses that aren’t tight. And a lot of times, sizing up means an ill fitting dress. So, I was thrilled when I got this stunning black beaded cocktail dress from Grace Karin. It fits in all the right places. It’s made of a thick, stretchy material that hides flaws and graces my curves perfectly. With long sleeves and a high neck line, the mini dress offers modesty with a bit of sexy.

I paired this gorgeous dress with over the knee boots and a sparkly choker, which only reveals a little bit of skin. If you don’t love your thighs, wearing a pair of black sheer tights with ankle booties will bring less attention to that area. Layer a faux fur coat or vest over the dress to warm your look and body up. Get this dress from Grace Karin HERE, and check out their amazing selection of affordable evening wear.
