sheer delight: the perfect summer dress


people tend to stay away from chiffon thinking it's too formal for day use or that it's too humid out to wear them. here i am, defying what other people think and no, a chiffon maxi dress is not too formal for day use and not humid at all. it's the perfect summer dress for when i feel like being all too feminine. to downplay a statement dress like this, pair it with flats like a studded or embellished sandal, add a thin belt to accentuate the waste and for someone like me who's afraid of showing my humongous (post-swimming / flag football) arms, pair it with a loose cover-up. add a dozen (or one, for others) of accessories and you're ready to go!

i remember the summer of 2008 and 2009 when all i wore during summer were all types of maxi dresses; chiffon, jersey, etc. they can't blame us right? they're fun, sexy, and super comfy! :)

i am definitely loving this! :)
