From The Mailbox


















I really wanted one of Kara's kimono dresses. When I saw that you could buy direct from her website (hopefully meaning she doesn't have to share as much if any of her profits with anyone else) for the same price and with more color options, I decided to order one. Once I had some birthday money gathered I ordered one Black/green kimono dress in size L from KaraJanx.com on Sunday, April 30th (5 days ago). Being a U.S. size 12/14 I was realistic about the possibility that this dress may never fit me and it might just be a collector's item but I was ok with that since I'd have a Kara Janx original. With a promised delivery time of "2-3 weeks" the dress arrived TODAY! And it fits BEAUTIFULLY, is so flattering to any variety of body shapes, I really cannot say enough about it. So if anybody has been debating buying a dress from Kara, here's a full endorsement from a BPR enthusiast. I am so impressed.

Emily of Orlando, you finally made me do it: I'd signed up on Kara's website over a month ago, selected the kimono dress and then chickened out. Yes, everyone looks fantastic in that dress, but they're all size 6 or below.

Today I went back and completed the transaction after reading your comment. Thank you from the bottom of another 12/14's heart!

This would have been my choice for sure. I LOVE the black and green.

so glad guilty indulgence took the plunge!! i hope you're as happy as i am. which color did you get?

ps, notice danielle in one of them? she's so cute!

oh ps something i noticed when i tried to wear it out last night- it's VERY WARM! and i live in florida which means i'm probably putting it on the backburner for a few months. i'm so sad! i'll just have to keep wearing it around the house til i find the perfect shoes...

The green and black. I have way too much red/pink in my wardrobe and am forcing myself to branch into the cooler colors. So this was an experimental purchase in practically every way.

I live in Northern California, where it's cool in the morning and hot during the day. But my office is a meat locker, so the dress will be perfect, provided it fits. Cross your fingers for me. Or else my sister will be getting one heckuva lovely gift come December.

I have the grey one. I LOVE it and it's not just great on all sizes, but all ages. As a "wrinklie", you have no idea how wonderful it is to find something that as MK says, "has attitude" but doesn't make one look like mutton dressed like lamb.

Kara, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you'll keep producing fantastic designs that have something for all of us before you get so fabulously successful that I won't be able to afford them!

I hope she keeps making them as a sort of staple and not discontinue them, I have had a lot of pet vet bills and things soo can't take the plunge but I really want to and I will I hope they are going to be here a long time.

I bought this dress the week after I saw Kara wear hers on the show. It's a GENIUS garment. It creates a lovely silhouette for virtually all shapes and ages. I have a straight, boyish frame, and am on the petite side. This dress gives me a more feminine figure and its length makes me look taller. I've gotten so many compliments on it!

It's a timeless design, extremely versatile (LOVE that I can wear it 3-4 ways), and unbelievably comfortable -- like wearing pajamas but looks fabulous. My favorite garment I have ever owned. And as someone in the architecture industry, hats off to Kara for bringing her talent into the fashion world as well! Love her work.

I like the black and green, too. But I think my fave was the brown/print one she had there.

Good to know the larger size fits large measurements instead of medium!
