Look of the Day: A Whole Lot of Dress

maxi dress, summer 2013, in style, red, short hair, blonde, fleur d'elise, seattle, street style, fashion, oasap
 It's taken me a couple months to make up my mind on this dress. It's a whole lotta dress! The colors and pattern are so bold, and polyester is not my first choice of fabrics. I've made up my mind, though. I LOVE IT. It's the perfect summer evening dress.

On my way downtown last week, I stepped out my door and a family walking home from the lake said "Look at that dress!" That settled things. This dress is over the top in the best way!

Without the belt, the front of the dress is a little shapeless. The back, however, is a gorgeous, Lanvin-esque cocoon shape. It drapes beautifully. I plan on wearing it as maternity wear someday.

I can understand about polyester not being a first choice of fabric- I am totally that way too! I am glad you kept it though- it is a beautiful and bold creation, and you look stunning! BTW- your hair looks fantastic! XO!!
