Taking it to the Max

There is one particular style that seems to be in all the stores at the moment, I for one am loving it:

The Maxi Dress.

It's good news for the bigger Vintage Vixens amongst us as there are lots of different styles in stretchy jersey that hug your curves in all the right places and natural cotton/linen to keep you cool during the glorious spring weather Melbourne is having at the moment.

The best thing about this style is that you can either dress it up or down with your accessories. As this dress is strapless, I chose to bling it up a little with a chunky necklace, brown belt and bronze flat sandals. The messy 'up do' was inspired in part by the Grecian goddess look. I might need to work on that one a bit methinks!

Thank you Ladies! I really do like this dress. I'm having a bit of trouble with photoshop on all my full length photos - when I rotate the canvas it squishes the image (which makes me shorter and fatter!) :(

It's true! I swear!

Any hints?

Gosh, sorry I can't help you with the photoshop. I don't use it - don't know how to, but wish I did :) I'm tech challenged!

You look gorgeous in this maxi, very goddess like and I love your sandals.
