Maxi dresses confuse me. It’s summer. It’s hot. And they are long. And cover a lot of leg. Which seems like it would just make you hotter. On the other hand, it’s summer, and we all know how I feel about shaving my legs. I think for the most part, I’m not into long dresses because they hide my legs. And I like my legs, so I prefer to show them off, but as I get older I prefer to show them off and cover them at the same time, like with tights pants, leggings or tights.
So maxi dresses confuse me a bit, but I own…off the top of my head…at least 4.
And this is one of them.
When I bought it, I fully intended to have it altered to just above the knee, and I might still. My husband likes it long, my co-worker voted for short. What do you think? I think it looked lovely long, but I might wear it more often short.
It hides my adorable wedges from Old Navy, which is kind of a sin, if you ask me…
I pulled an old photo of them as I forgot to get a detail shot.
They are made out of the softest tee shirt fabric imaginable. I wore them from 8 AM until 11 PM yesterday and was only uncomfortable at about the 10:30 PM mark, which for heels that high, is impressive. The foot bed is super cushioned and the platform and angle on the heel gives the illusion of much more height to the heel than there actually is.
I made that bullet necklace this weekend. I was getting gum and Red Bull at a gas station on my way to Lara's house for her husband's birthday party (he had a video DJ set up, it was super fun)and they were selling these bullets on key chains for cheap, and I thought it would be awesome on a chain. Now I want to get back up there and buy several more to make for the shop. I just love it! And I could sell them for as little as $15 bucks and still make a little money on them. I love when I can do something really cool for the shop (and me!) for cheap.
