I considered several maxi-dress-inspired titles for this post; To the Max, Max Attack (yes, that was a possibility. I know, shame on me) but decided they'd kinda been overdone lately (slash, I'll probably do one another time...). Anyway, here is my friend Michelle. Isn't she lovely? After (rather badly) hemming this dress on Monday night (with safety pins, nonetheless) and hearing the weather was going to be lovely today, I decided to wear it, and bring along my fellow maxi-lover Michelle.
Yes, those are my Blowfish platforms. She loves them!!
This photoshoot was so fun to do! I never do pictures with other people, but Michelle and I always go for lunch on Wednesday (we usually get sushi from the supermarket, which was what we did today. Mmmm) and I thought it would be really nice to feature her with me. I am crazy in love with her maxi dress. I will definitely be stealing it when we go to San Francisco!
Naturally, we took 90 photos and then narrowed it down to the (still insane) 28 that we liked, so I've had to really careful chose my favourites. Anyway, about this dress. I was sent this dress thanks to my editors over at College Candy to review for Baby Phat. My review isn't up yet, and doesn't have pictures, so I'm going to add these ones to the post too hopefully. It hasn't really been maxi weather here in Duluth lately so I've not had a chance to review it yet! It's a fabulous dress though, just a little too long for me. Even with heels I had to hem it a bit (I hemmed it about 3 inches with safety pins), and it still just touches the floor. I'm considered shortening it even more before getting my Nan to hem it properly, but Michelle insists that it's just the right length right now. It's hard getting used to walking in a maxi though! This is my first one so I've been terrified of falling on my face all day!!
The last few days have been kinda lame. I'm on antibiotics (don't ask ://) and they're making me super-sleepy and I've been told to avoid alcohol and caffeine, even tea! It's day two and my body is craving sleep and tea, but I'm too busy to nap! I found out today one of my exams has a 100 point take home so guess what I'm going to be doing the next few days? I hate take home exams because I always work far too hard and spend far too much time on them when I should be studying instead!! Which is what I should be doing now! So here is one last photo dump...
