Free

Maxi-Dress: Sugarlips from Macys; Shoes and Sunglasses: BCBG; Clutch: Thrifted; Earrings: H&M
Danced by myself in the desert bathed in the sunset last night.  Even hummed my own tune just to keep the rhythm going.  I had mixed feelings whether it was strange or romantic.  If only I had my Mister with me; surely it would have been romantic.  (Note to self: dance with Hubby underneath a sunset.)  There were plenty of cars rolling by and I was definitely in clear view.  I didn't know if the tired-from-the-day drivers were thinking, 'What is that girl doing in that gorgeous maxi dress by 'Sugarlips'?  Is she trying to make it rain?'  Or - maybe I'm being too narcissistic.  Yes, way too narcissistic to believe that anyone would be staring at me while the Man above was painting His magnificent golden sunset.  Whatever it was, I didn't let it stop me from feeling free.

i adore this dress, but i like your comments below it more. if i saw someone dancing by themselves in the desert my first thought would be "raindance!" for sure.

and looove the paisley. it doesn't look too paisley-ish, if that makes sense.

Gorgeous! I think it's safe to say you caught a few eyes of the passer-bys! You look stunning in this sunlight and I love the way the dress moves. Fantastic. I can't wait for sunsets like this.... I think it first requires the sun to come out in washington...

Maybe can you do a sun-dance? Thanks :)

I'm pretty sure they were all looking at you and I'm also pretty sure they all went home and told their families they saw Giselle Bundchen in a photo shoot. Seriously!

Gorgeous maxi! That third photo looks straight out of a magazine!

Rissy said...

hahahah "is she trying to make it rain?" if only you had some Native American drums playing.

so jealous you are one of those people who can wear a maxi dress with flats! I would trip, fall, and skin my knees.

Hi, I've been stalking your blog for a while now. I thoroughly enjoy it :) Anyways, I just had to say that I love this dress. The length is absolutely dreamy (not to mention you totally have the body for a long dress).

Happy Friday!
