Another weekend came and went in a haze…..and so did our Mothers’ Day sojourn with my visiting family from the Philippines to the lovely desert valley of Coachella.  The desert naturally sizzled to the 100s…..and so did this dazzling dress which Wallis sent me again (here is the 1st one) for being nominated and participating in the recent search for their 1st US Blogger-Ambassador.  Being the maxi dress junkie that I am…..I didn’t have a hard time choosing from their vast maxi dress collection (here)……and one of the best from their fabulous W collection (here) nonetheless!  I just can’t stop gushing over the floaty swaths of fabric and that lavish gold embellishment which can be easily removed and worn separately as a necklace. ♥

So, if you just stopped by my blog and you’re any one of these ladies, Wallis is the answer to all your dressing dilemmas:

  • the budget-conscious woman who does not want to break the bank to achieve high style;
  • the time-strapped corporate maven who wants outfits that can take her from the board room to happy hours with just a few style tweaks;
  • the ever-busy working mom who would rather shop online than scour the malls for great style and good deals;
  • the fashionista/style chameleon who loves spinning wardrobe classics into her own personal style; and
  • the age-appropriate conscious but still fun-loving 40-something woman!

Plus…..Wallis is having a site-wide sale going on right now.  Happy Shopping everyone! :-)

    I love Wallis as they have a great collection of dresses (and I am kind of dress-addicted!), very good quality and there is always a sale or some kind of special offer.

    This maxidress is fabulous, Rebecca! I wish we had your climate over here and I could wear this style more often.

    Every time I stop by your lovely blog, I can’t help wishing that summer would hurry up and arrive – you always seem to be having such beautiful weather! And what better for beautiful weather than a maxi dress? I love the slight ombre effect of the neutral print on this one… and gold embellishments make everything better :)

    I love that dress so much! I too love a good maxi and that one is so pretty! I especially love the gold around the neck, which looks so great with your sandals!

    Beautiful maxi dress. I love the halter style of it. It looks amazing on you. I just got a similar watch in rose gold like yours, but I have to size it. Can’t wait to wear it. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for always leaving the most encouraging and sweet message. I really appreciate it.

    Hope you had a great weekend.
