Greetings from Positano! Dina here, your former ladies’ buyer and, now, Karmaloop foreign correspondent and general man about town. I am here having a lovely vacation and putting my Karmaloop threads (and shoes!) to good use. We were in Rome first and came to Positano by car – it was an easy ride except that after the first few miles of the winding Amalfi Coast road (beware of careening off the side of the cliff!), one does become quite car sick. Our hotel here is awesome, full of quirky antiques collected by the founder since it’s, well, founding in 1951. The weather is beautimous, the views are amazing, the doggies are barking and the food is magnificent!
Ok, so, I’ve been on quite the dress tear this week. I have literally worn a dress every day since Saturday, and though not every single one is from Karmaloop, i’ve had great success with a bunch, namely: The Prospect Shirtdress from Heartloom, which happens to be on sale! Somehow, it seemed perfect for Rome – being all clean, crisp and ladylike, and it went well with a pair of nude Seychelles ballet flats I got off the site last year.

In fact, I’m kind of obsessed with flats too, though I suppose that isn’t surprising given we’re walking around all day long – speaking of, we had an AMAZING, private tour with a Roman art historian for 5 1/2 hours! Ok back to flats- my favorite ones these days are navy leather Lanvins with flat bows on the front- not from Karmaloop, but even I mix it up once in a while! And, now back to the dresses – also on my back this trip: The Last Dance Dress from Obey, which is cool cuz it has an almost tutu-like silhouette, and The Naive Fantasy Dress from Insight, which is long gone, but was in the same pretty print as The Flowing Cosmo Top, and I’ll be wearing the Rojas Chiffon Blossom One Shoulder Dress (no flats here!) to dinner tonight. Finally, I will be making use of one of the 2 Motel Dresses I have with me – (they are The Linda Dress in a rose pattern and The Phoebe Dress also in a rose pattern…. ok, admittedly these latter show a lack of inclination towards floral variety on my part) and finally! and definitely! my Quinn One Shoulder Dress from Blaque Label, which I think is the perfect having lunch on the-terrace overlooking-the-sea type of dress.
