Princess Maxi Dresses

It is a gathering of skirts day! I love a long flowing dress. I do not think there is anything more feminine. What girl doesn’t want to feel like a princess? As long as you aren’t wearing a tiara, I think it is okay to dress for a fantasy world. Of course, this is coming from a girl who wants a hobbit house.

As soon as I saw this dress I knew it had to be mine! The pattern on it is fantastic. It is very reminiscent of otomi fabric, but smaller and more pastel. I am going to be honest, I tried this dress on for the picture, and then quickly took it off and stashed it back in my closet. It is insanely expensive (at least for this little ol’ country girl’s heart). So, I almost feel too guilty to own it. Almost. I did get an “oops we goofed percentage off” code for it, but it is still a hard price to swallow! Tell me it was worth it! (don’t tell me if it’s not. I think I’m in love). Here is a link to this “you’re family will eat top ramen for a week” dress

Recently, my husband and I went on a wonderful quick trip to Seattle. I wore this dress to Pike Place Market. It was so much fun walking around such a historical place in an old fashioned dress. I also wore this dress on the airplane ride home. It was so comfortable! I felt like I was wearing pajamas.

The best part about wearing this dress is the way little girls smile at you.

This ensemble reminds me of THE PRINCESS BRIDE. The best movie that ever was! The color of the dress is the sweetest berry. The tulle slip is sexy and sweet. I highly recommend both. Here is a link to the fable dress

Yes! I am wearing my nightgown under my dress! But I love getting multiple uses out of items. I am kind of proud of myself for pairing them together. This dress from Free People is a very reasonable price at $88. I love this look. I feel very medieval in it. I wore this to THE HOBBIT movie and feel like I enjoyed the movie more, because I dressed the part. Yes, I am a dork! Here is the link to the dress

Which dress do you like best?

  1. The Vintage Maxi dress in amazing!! The Embroidery dress is a wonderful color on you. You’ve almost converted me … just need to lose 20 pounds, stop with the blue jeans & oversized t-shirts AND borrow your wardrobe. You look great!

  2. Love the dresses! Love the post! Love Princess Bride! Now, excuse me…I’m off to purchase a princess dress of my very own. 🙂

  3. I have princess dress envy! You are looking so good in all of these ensembles, but I choose #1 as my favorite. Love it.

  4. Jenni- I think we need to get you a job as a lunch lady…one month’s salary and you could have 12 more dresses like the first one;)!! LOL my fav was the second, berry colored one! Love your blogging!!

  5. I think they have it all wrong about clothes making the woman. It’s obvious your beauty “makes the clothes” I love them in the order you wore them. Now I know whose house I will enjoy cereal at, before I raid your closet to wear one (well who can choose?), wear all three of those! Plus now I’m curious what else you have hiding in that secret closet of yours:)

  6. You know, I have a BBQ eating contest coming up this weekend…would you mind if I borrowed that first dress? It’d be perfect for the event! J/K! 🙂 I really love the pattern on the first dress, but I love the tulle underneath the berry-colored dress so it’s a toss up for me. Your you-know-whats look huge in the blue dress – go girl!

    • ??? Yes,and how could we not know this about each other. Oh my gosh! That movie is the greatest. And you bringing this up makes me want to watch it RIGHT NOW! Darn dishes! And laundry! Why does life always get in the way. Must watch that movie soon! I am glad we have yet another thing in common! Yay!

      Have a Terrific Tuesday!

  7. Scary but there have actually been about three other things you have written about that at we are alike in and I haven’t told you because I didn’t want to be that weird blog stalker person. Lol. Wish I could remember now what they were. Cue up creepy music. Doo-doo doo-doo.

    • That’s funny. You will have to tell me what they are, if you remember. I am constantly forgetting things. I could forget it within one second. And never have it come to me. Or maybe it would and I cannot remember that I all ready thought of it. Now, that is scary.

      I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
