My mom loves to remind me, as if I don't already realize, that the trends we see now are never new, but constantly reinvented. And in an effort to further her point, she went to the attic and brought out one of her favorite maxi dresses from the 70s. We decided that it would be fun to share her favorite and my favorite maxi dress. Since my mom is really shy she remained behind the camera while I attempted to get into a dress that fit her at her smallest - a size 4 by the standards in the 70s. Well, here I am rocking my mom's maxi dress and my maxi dress.
I adore my dress because it can be worn as a halter or as a tube dress. I also really love the colors because they are so bright and vibrant. I was also surprised that I even liked this dress because the fabric is a sort of jersey material that I tend to shy away from.
