I wish I was in Rome, but I guess the Getty Villa will have to do for now. I got really sick throughout the months of April and May – thus the lack of posts, but I am back! Before I got sick I made a quick trip to LA for a few days and got in a little sight-seeing.
Up to this day, I have never owned a maxi dress. They are cool in theory, much like all those “As Seen on TV” products, but for some reason, I can never make the commitment to buy one. I’ve tried on many, thinking that each time I’m going to have a moment of epiphany and I’ll somehow see what others have been raving about, and every time I end up handing it back to the nice person in the dressing room.
Well, the tables have turned because this maxi dress fails to make me look like I’m drowning in a sea of jersey material and is super soft and flowy. The open slit detail on the skirt hits right above my knee, so it gives the illusion that I have longer legs and the ruching detail on top slightly highlights my waist. I find that a lot of maxi dresses can be quite suffocating because it is so much material around your body, but this dress flows as you walk so even when it’s really hot, your legs aren’t constricted by lots of fabric. This dress will definitely be a staple in my closet for the summer!
