  • Raysa Williams

    I want Morgan.. It’s just my style and favorite shape of dress to wear.. It’s be perfect for a tea or dinner..

  • Ambre Mathis

    I adore the Maya and the Morgan. Both are awesome classic dresses with a modern edge.

  • Lisa Crotty

    I love all the dresses, but being of a bit older generation (48) I believe the Bailey dress would best flatter my figure and help accentuate my “better” qualities.

  • Di

    I love the Bailey design! So beautiful!

  • Jacqueline L.

    Oh my goodness! How does a girl decide between such amazing dresses?

    With it’s playful ruffles & bold yellow color, the Dylan dress definitely screams “ME!”. It would make it’s debut at my bachelorette party – demanding to be the center of attention. And frankly, I’m quite alright with that. 😉

  • Ashley S.

    The Dylan is so cute! This would be perfect for my summer wedding dinner the night before, its very summery with the ruffles and color!


    I love the Maya dress. I recently went to a wedding and 90% of the women wore black. I would have loved to show up in this dress because a) the color and b) style. It’s simple but yet so interesting.

  • I love the Dylan! I have ten weddings to go to this year…I would love to wear the Dylan to one (or more) of them!

  • leighanne evans

    I love the dylan or bailey dress! so hard to choose between those 2. the one shoulder on the bailey and the bright pop of color with the dylan. both great designs!

  • shelby connors

    I’d love the dylan dress in green! perfect for my pre wedding parties. my mom passed away about 5 years ago and not having her here when i get married is going to be really tough. green was her absolute favorite color, so i’d like to think that it makes her extra happy when i wear green even though she isn’t there to share these happy times with me.

  • naomip

    I love the Bailey. It would be perfect for all the outdoor weddings I’ll be attending.The bow on the shoulder is a great touch.


  • Jodi Coplan

    I love the Dylan dress in Yellow. My Great Great Aunt passed away at the age of 96 last year. The night before she passed away, my fiance and I sat with her and talked about what she would wear down the aisle at our wedding. She said she would wear a yellow dress because it brought out her skin ( she did not look 96, and had beautiful skin). She was truly one of my best friends and I was her “monkeyface”. I want to wear a yellow dress to our rehearsal dinner in honor of “Auntie I” and I think this KaraJanx Dress would honor her in the perfect way.

  • I love the Tallulah dress! I wanted ruffley tiers for my wedding gown, but when all the way down to the floor, they overpowered my tiny frame. This cute knee-length party dress would be perfect! Also, red is considered lucky in my culture and my favorite color 🙂

  • Michele Musial

    I LOVE the Morgan (with out the bow) dress!! I would LOVE it for my rehearsal dinner dress!! In a champagne or brown. I’m having a fall wedding and my gown has a big skirt like that one. So it would be perfect to have a cute short little version of it! I would have a awesome necklace too! I saw one already that would be amazing with that dress! It was ivory pearls and a brown leaf that off to the side of it. The champagne with a cute pair of brown heels would be PERFECT! 🙂

  • All the dresses are lovely! Its so hard to pick one. I love the bailey dress in white with black polkadots. I think it would be perfect to wear for my engagement photo shoot. It has a Audrey Hepburn feel to it. It would look great with my 50’s vintage New York City themed photo shoot. I would love to wear it with red lipstick and cute red shoes!

  • Tyisha

    I love all of the dresses! But Maya and Morgan Are my Favorites. They both are a bold color and just look like a dress you would wear to get the party started.

  • Chelsea

    I LOVE the Morgan dress with the bow! It is so fun, yet sophisticated and still festive. I can picture wearing it at my bridal shower!!!! I must say that the bow-less Morgan dress has the most radiant shade of purple I have ever seen…Royal purple is my primary wedding color! The shade and fabric combined give this color depth, and is certain to captivate an audience.

  • Isabella

    I absolutely adore them all, but if I had to pick one that I felt would fit me best, I’d say my number one pick would be the Bailey dress and Dylan would be my second choice! My wedding colors are deep purple and navy blue, so this would be a great compliment to my color scheme. I’d wear this for my bridal shower…..and many other events as well!

  • I think I love the Fall ’09 Zuri dress most of all.

  • Cameron R

    I don’t want the Tallulah. I NEED it! It’s such a happy dress. My wedding gown is made of tiers upon tiers of beautiful tulle so it would be so much fun to have a similar effect for my rehearsal dinner. It is such a perfect dress, and that sweetheart neckline!! Love it! I would love to win this dress so I can have one more thing checked “done” on my long long list of things to do. (Also, I’m adding my uncles name here “Richard” because it is said that he wins everything he enters… so maybe he’ll bring me some luck here, who knows 🙂

  • Khanh Pham

    I am absolutely in love with Morgan dress WITH the bow! Because I am so skinny, the bubbled bottom would do wonders to give me a bigger figure, and I ADORE bows with a passion! Not only would it look great at my wedding rehearsal dinner, but I also would be able to wear it again and again at cocktail parties. I would walk through a thousand minefields for this dress if I had to!

  • I love the Dylan in sour apple. What a fresh color and great design! It would be perfect for a summer wedding, with watermelon cocktails and fresh salads, gold accessories, and happy guests. =)
