For'midi'able

Things I have learned: after six years with this dress and a love/hate relationship with it's awkward length, I'm finally done with it.

And, when my boyfriend says "Lets go take outfit photos now." and I say, "I don't want to anymore, it's too dark." he will get in my car and blow the horn until I put my shoes back on we go take photos.

  15. The midi heel looks great with the midi dress. The pattern is cute. I've always had a love hate relationship with my Max Studio items, but I end up loving them after all. You wear it so well.

  20. It sounds like you have found yourself a very good man :) Although this dress looks gorgeous on you - I love the slightly 70s vibe of the top half - there is nothing worse than a piece that never feels quite right no matter how many ways you try to wear it. You're better off just moving on to something that makes you feel fabulous.

  21. Ummm my husband has never once said "Let's go take outfit pictures." He has said "Do we have to??" many times. I think this dress looks great on you!

  22. Its a beautiful dress and i think it looks marvelous.
    Then again I can totally relate as the garment also has to make you feel good and confident - so yes let it go.
    And I cannot believe he would do that! I'd let him stay out there honking until the neighbors took care of him.

  28. Gorgeous! The combination of awkward-length dress with leopard-print heels is something I would totally wear. I'm glad you got back off the couch to photograph it. :P

  30. Aww, that's sweet of your boyfriend. And I like the dress, but I understand when you just don't feel right about something. Is it one that you could get hemmed? (For me though, that's one of those things I'll say I'm going to do but then I don't ever actually do...oh well.)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oooh, boyfriend? I've not heard of him! Or have I? My mom told me about this post and that you mentioned a boyfriend so I had to check it out asap hahaha. :)

    That's a good boyfriend, though, honking at you until you take pictures. And these photos are absolutely flawless! I love the location and those heeeeeeels.

  32. That dress is a keeper! Looks fabulous on you! You have an awesome boyfriend! I love that he supports what you like to do. You don't find that much anymore.

  33. As a fellow petite I am all too familiar with the awkward length problem. The pattern is so gorgeous, though... ever thought of hemming it?
