The Blue & White Batik Maxi…. is an absolute summer staple this Summer 2015… and the beauty of this batik pattern is that any height, size, or age can pull it off!
While the dark color has the same slimming effect as black…. the batik gives it that summer vibe and cool factor. The maxi elongates and the pattern helps hide flaws unlike a solid color that most of the time emphasizes those bumps and bulges. The Vee neck points the eye downward which is another elongating trick.
The beauty of buying summer clothes now? We are at the end of summer buying in the Northern Hemisphere meaning…. SERIOUS Sale time. Most of the Pre-Fall fashions are hitting the stores and many stores are at 70% clearance. Almost every single store in America is on sale now, so if there’s anything that you didn’t buy for summer but really wanted, now is the time.
Sale time is coming earlier and earlier… meaning we get to take advantage of great clothes at really great prices while it’s still warm enough to wear them. I have to say besides all major holidays…. sale time is my favorite time of the year.
Happy Hunting and Sales shopping.
All my love,
What a cute summer maxi.
I have never heard of batik dying. Thank you for the info.
Slimming? You had me at slimming!
The V-neck really does draw the eyes so you get a different illusion.
Thank you for the sale tip.
This fabric sounds really hard to make which means you need a sale to afford the beautiful hard work!
Love the dress! It looks great on you. Not sure about the necklace. I need to hit up some of these sales this weekend!
Perfect for summer!
Hard to tell if it’s “slimming” on you, because you ARE slim! 😉 Very cute dress!
I see what you mean about flattering for all body types.
Where do you get your inside tips! Never heard of Batik. Must be the world traveling.
I like that you can dress it up or dress it down a bit. Really cute dress with a cool pattern. I love the slit!
Got to love those summer sales! Best time to buy clothes is now. But don’t wait, because the really cute stuff goes fast!
WHAT…summer is hardly over! Why do they bust out the fall stuff so soon?
I wonder if there are any special washing instructions for this delicate dying technique.
This can be dressed up or down and works for so many occasions.
I saw your aviators and I just HAD to run out and get myself a Porsche pair too!
How fabulous is your bib necklace? SUPER FAB, no doubt!
Fashion designers are so creative. Wax and dye? Who would have thought?
You could wear this maxi with a cardigan during the fall months too!
Sale is my favorite “S” word!
You look good in everything Laura Dunn!
You look stunning in that dress!! Love the pictures!
Just when I am getting into the summer buying thing, they are putting fall clothes out It’s too fast for me, I can’t keep up!
I love this ethnic print on the fabric.
How do I not know that there is a Zara here? I used to shop there in Spain when I lived there!
I’ve never heard of this! Sounds like a really interesting process. Thank you for sharing!
Ohhhh La La! This looks great on you! Super chic!
You make everything look so sexy
This looks so comfy and cool for the hot summer months.
This pattern is very “India” inspired.
Thumbs up on the necklace addition!
Zara is a popular in other countries; it’s nice to see more people are finding out about this amazing shoppe.
I dig the sexy lil slit in the leg.
A summer must-have!
I love shopping for great summer dresses at the end of the season…guaranteed deals.
Is there a specific store that I can find only Batiik style clothing?
I can see just why you got so many compliments on the necklace!
I saw so many of these style dresses when I went to Japan and India last year! But always stays in fashion.
Hasn’t Zara been around for years? At least in SoCal. I need to make my way in there to see what they have on sale!
Hello Summer! Love the look.
who makes the sunglasses?
Batik…ethnic and hip! Love the look!
