I love maxi dresses. I have close to 12 of them... While I love the summer time frock, I hate that they are ALWAYS sleeveless! What about us girls who practice the "Modest is Hottest" standard of dress? I rarely ever buy sleeveless articles of clothing, and I HATE how the white.t-shirt.layered.under.spaghetti.straps look. If you can't wear as is, just don't buy it, that's my philosophy (please save tomato throwing until after this post).
Imagine my excitement when I found a maxi dress with sleeves! Yes my religious ladies, sleeves! It was only about $20.00 at Forever 21 and so I bought it on an "I have to hurry and buy everything I can before my Spending Fast starts on July 1" binge.
I love how light and airy the fabric is, how comfortable it is (like work-approved-pajamas), and I like the summery tribal pattern! I also like that I can wear turquoise eyeliner to match! This really is my new love. I'm determined to learn to sew, so I can make a few more of these babies, because they're that amazing... even if a co-worker did, tell me that I looked like a Wiccan. Thanks.
