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?

I could see it in an office setting.  On a teacher or with children?  Maybe not.  Country club look...  Really?  Could use thardy's contribution about that one.  Lol.

As for country clubs, I used to get dragged to the WCC on a fairly regular basis, so I think you can take my word for it. It could also work for a weekend in the Hamptons perhaps.

Manicured or could you care less what your yard looks like? Manicured although it is so bloody hot right now, I'll settle for not dead. What kind of dresser are you - classy, trendy, bold or combination/no one particular style? Appropriate for my body type and mood. Cook in/grill out or go out on a scorching hot day? Cooked last night.

Wouldn't a pencil maxi be difficult to manuever in? Downright dangerous in case of a fire and you're stuck on an upper floor!

That site doesn't impress me, Lol.  I am related to my fair share of high society and I've been to a number of country clubs too.  I don't know if it would pass as a Hampton look or not b/c I've not been there. 

Place two comparable maxi skirts next to eachother - a high end one and one purchased at say, Target - could you tell a difference IYO?

No you don't. DD & I rock maxis all.the.time. And I often buy them for both of us in the kids' department. I think build is more important that height when it comes to that style...

modcloth is one of my favortie clothing store to browse online.  I haven't bought anything yet, because I'm just leery of not being able to try it on. But I love love love their stuff. And the names are so clever.

Here are a couple in particular that I"ve been jonesing over:

 

 

 

BTW, these are all the fronts of the dresses.
