Casual and Cool

As promised. I wore today’s look to an afternoon screening of the “Sex and the City” movie last Friday. The outfit is anchored by a cool trapeze dress with a mod color and print, princess cap sleeves, and a shirred neckline. A white clutch and navy patent flats complete the look.

    You and those Maxxstudio dresses they really fit you well. When you find a brand that works stick with it though I too subscribe to that philosophy.

    Wow, do you ever look great in that neckline! I love the print, too.

    Sara: I appreciate it. The color and print demand attention for sure. I enjoyed the movie too!

    Lj: ๐Ÿ˜ฎ You don’t like dresses? What? We’ve got to talk, LJ ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh yes…I loved the movie!

    Siljesfashion: Thanks for coming by!

    Times of Glory: True. It can be difficult to strike that balance. This dress does all the work. Thanks for stopping by.

    Kira Fashion: Thank ya!

    Secretista: Oooh cool ๐Ÿ™‚

    Diva: Right! When I go to Marshalls and TJ, I head straight to the dresses. They’ve even made it easy by isolating the Max studio ones. I love them! This summer these stores have been carrying some great BCBGMaxAzria styles as well. But, I haven’t found my size ๐Ÿ™

    Phenomenal Aquarius: So you know. I love the matte jersey in most of these dresses, so fluid and easy to wear.

    Enc: Ha. Thanks. I had to go on the hunt for that dress in a few Marshalls stores last year to find my size. It was so worth it.

    Love your look. All the details are great to a clean look. The pattern dress is amazing.

    The white clutch is fantastic (as is the whole outfit) but it’s really taken my fancy!

    Seeker: Thanks. I remember when I first saw this dress in store, I did not buy it. That was a mistake, for I could not get the image of the pattern out of my head. So I had to hunt it down and get it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Imelda Matt: Wonderful. This white clutch was another lucky find–I was in the right resale shop at the right time.
