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?

Cool, I was on the mark about what occassion you'd wear that too.  It's cute but not my style.  And to me, it looks like a sundress not maxi dress, When I think of a maxi dress or skirt I think of something that is at the toe/almost sweeping the floor.

Yes, but on someone of average height it would be to the floor. I actually bought it because it wasn't. I like that it is only ankle length, so I won't trip in it. It is also the sort of dress that looks casual with flats, but fairly dressed with heels and a nice bag/jewelry.

Also, Jams, I can see why it wouldn't work for you. It would not have worked for me either a few years ago, but now I try to take full advantage of not needing a bra to look decent.

BWAHAHAHAAH!

I am kind of top heavy so no, I wouldn't wear something like that.  But it also looks like something for the younger set too so even if I didn't have boobs I doubt I'd wear it, JMO.  I do like the pencil thin maxi skirts though and have the boyish frame for it, I'd like to buy just one but haven't found one, not even in donna karan.

To each her own. Like I said, those skirts look neo-frum to me, unless you are very young.

I don't know if I could pull this off b/c the model looks very tall but I don't think this looks too young.  And I love the subtle color!  But yea, to each their own!  I think that sundress is something my almost 16 year old would like, She actually has something similar to it, Hers has this matching vest.

That is a beautiful skirt, but you need to be tall, thin, with a firm behind and belly, no cellulite and no saddle bags. It is not a style that forgives anything. IMO, it would look best on a thin, firm 18-25 YO.

Also, Jams (still can't get the edit function to work), although that skirt is beautiful and expensive, it is very casual in style. It would work for a relaxed brunch at an upscale country club, that sort of thing. In regular life, I am not quite sure where you would wear it.
