Manicured or could you care less what your yard looks like?

What kind of dresser are you - classy, trendy, bold or combination/no one particular style?

Cook in/grill out or go out on a scorching hot day?

second one is the front - see the boobs? And the gathered/wrapped part? You wouldn't want that on your butt!   I wish the second one had a diffrent color - the coffee color is a bit milder than my usual, but I like it enough to wear it.

the neck and neckline - yes, could be the back. But that gathered detail? That HAS to be on the front. Can you imagine what someone's asssss would like like with that on it? <blink blink>

Both of those dresses are cute, but I couldn't make either work on me.  I need something cocktail partyish for a couple of events in August and am thinking of this, in the pink:http://www.dillards.com/product/London-Times-Lace-PopOver-Dress_301_-1_301_503857656?df=04003027_zi_black

I like the look of maxi skirts (trendy?) but I think you have to be real tall to wear it well.  They're cute though and I could see dressing one up or down depending on the occassion...

1.  Some where in the middle.  Not the best yard in the neighborhood but not the worst either.  Am not much for gardening so don't plant annuals.

2,  I would say casual,  

3,  Have never eaten out to avoid the heat.  Don't cook out when it is hot, the last thing either of us want to do when it is 100 is to cook in it.    Cook in, but try to limit producing heat.  It helps that is it just the 2 of us now.  We can use the toaster oven instead of the regular oven.  We also do a lot of planned leftovers,  cook once and reheat left overs in the microwave. I have had a pork roast in the slow cooker all day.  Tonight we will have pork roast.  Should get a couple of dinners and maybe a lunch or two of pulled pork with the leftovers.

Yeah, me too.  I have two maxidresses - but they're not as flowy and bright as most of those that are out there.  But the maxi skirt? yeahno

Maxi skirts tend to  look Amish or neo-frum, unless you are 19. But the dresses are OK, even on old ladies (under the right circumstances).

Bord, I can't get the link for the dress to work for anything.
