Many of you know that I’ve been a green ambassador for Karina Dresses for some time now—bringing tips for green living to the Karina Nation through their blog.
Karina Dresses and Jo-Erl Farm have a lot in common. Founder Karina Cousineau is from Uxbridge, MA, where Jo-Erl Farm has fed five generations during our various incarnations as a poultry, a dairy, and now offering grassfed beef and pastured poultry. I remember Karina and her mother Lorraine and sister Pat sewing in her childhood home back in the 1970s, where I would visit with Karina’s younger sister Su and a large group of closely knit girls including Jane Clarke, Gail Carey, Lauren Steele, Christine Gervais, Deb Lamontagne and Jeanne Beaumier. I’m grateful to say that 45 years later, that group of close knit girls all still retain our friendships as women, along with our fondness for things local, home made, and sown (or sewn) with care.
Karina has founded her company on those very principles: her dresses are handmade here in the U.S. with love. And her commitment is to empowering women of all ages with dresses for every body. I like the slightly nostalgic feel of her designs and their easy-wear comfort, which reminds me of the dresses my grandmother wore every day of her life on the farm. I’ve worn Karina Dresses to the beach, to meetings, on dates, to evening functions, fundraisers, to church, and yes, even occasionally to the barn, before I dash off to somewhere else.
