Do you like maxi dresses? I have never owned one before. I always try them on and I always hate them instantly, but then I see them on other people and think they are adorable so the next time I see one at the store I try it on again. Its a vicious cycle. I think the reason I hate most maxi dresses are they always have like a dust ruffle thing at the bottom and they are usually out of some jersey cotton that is just too clingy for my liking. I feel more prairie girl than anything. Thats why when I saw this dress at the store I had to try it on. 1. it was not made in a jersey fabric 2. There was no gathered hem at the bottom 3. it had a cool corset top and chunky exposed zipper 4. it had pockets!! and 5. it had a bold bright pattern. I tried it on and I actually liked it! Its still a new feeling to wear a dress that goes down to my ankles but it is very comfy and very cool in this heat wave of a summer.
(pockets in dresses are like my favorite thing!)
