In keeping with the Hourglassy summer maxi dress theme, I decided to drop by Marshall’s and do a little browsing. Â I had such luck last summer with their maxi selection that I had high hopes. Â I threw on the lightest, most comfortable maxi I own. Â I purchased it at Marshall’s last year along with two others that I love. Â As you can see, I didn’t even wear a cardigan! Yay! Â It’s a bazillion degrees outside when you factor in the humidity, and I had business to take care of. Â You can see my pretty black lace bra somewhat but oh well.
Marshall’s has a 9 item dressing room policy so I wasted no time, heading directly to the back walls where racks and racks of maxis awaited. Â As I’ve said before, the way I shop at Marshall’s is to grab anything and everything that looks like it might work regardless of what the tag says. Â In 15 minutes I had nine dresses in my basket and made my way to the dressing room.
Out of the 9 maxis I tried on, three weren’t even worth taking a photo of. Â Two of those three had no stretch in the boob area so they made me look like a brick house (and I don’t mean the hot mamma brick house from the song). Â The third was a beautiful, cobalt blue . . . mooo moo.
These are the maxis that I felt were worth taking pictures of. Â I made sure to take a picture of what the dresses look like on the hanger as well as on me. Â It illustrates how different a dress can look on a hanger when compared to how it actually looks on your body.
The first three, I don’t care for. Â The first two obviously don’t fit my boobs, although if you look at them on the hanger, you’d assume they would work better than the others. Â The last dress of this group made me look like a cross between a rectangle and the Cheshire Cat, but it is something I would wear around the house because it was soooooo comfy.
