Maxi Return


Those of you who have been with me for quite a while now are oh-so familiar with my love affair with the maxi dress. It’s an “I-would-live-in-it-if-I-could” kind of love and I’m bringing it back this Spring via one of my favorite maxi dresses in the book.  By the way….except for the lipstick, nothing in this look is new.  One of the obvious perks that come with shopping for the classics….they never go out of fashion which totally works for this cost-conscious mom. :-)

If you’re with me at Facebook or Instagram… would notice that I’m riding the orange lipcolor bandwagon (love how Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o wore hers here) via this gorgeous lipstick I’m wearing right now which is part of a beauty stash I’m supposed to review for Smart Bomb Cosmetics.  In as much as this blogger is not much into eye makeup….I chose a lot of products from their skin care line.  Watch out for my full-length review of their products very soon. ♥

Please join me again same time next week.  By then, you will already be viewing this blog through a new design which is scheduled to unveil on Monday, April 7 (1 a.m. PST).  I already saw the big picture via a test site from my sweet and talented designer (her identity will likewise be revealed at the launch :-) )….and I can’t be more excited and satisfied! ;-)

    Loving your maxi dress! & i’m with you on buying classics, that never go out of fashion. Much better to have your own style, & yours is lovely. Now, could we please have some of that sunshine you’ve got there, here in the UK please?

    Oh, what a beautiful style, I love these photographs. I love her dress, very special, the color is tasteful here. Actually the bag is my favorite, I love its elegant shape. The dress and bag, well, is a really perfect combination. In this summer, I will try this combination ^_^

    Hello Rebecca! You look beautiful and what a perfect backdrop for your maxi look! Maxis are a great long, lean look and just the right thing to wear in a warm climate. My maxis would be dragging in the snow up here in Ontario. Yes, we still have snow, but it won’t be long now.

    I remember your lovely maxi in the Fabulous After 40 featuring you, Greetje and me!
