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?

The half near the house is mowed, the other half is left on its own, overgrown. 

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

None of the above.  I see what's out there each season, what I/the kids need and buy.  "Fall" clothes have just started coming out and I'm making my mental list, already ordered quite a bit online for my children.

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

Both.  I don't mind using the oven since the air conditioning's on.  It's summer, we use the barbecue.  I never thought the weather discourages people or dictates when to barbecue.  It's summer, it's outdoors, it's going to be hot.  Just turn on the fan.

I couldn't tell the front from the back either.  I'm totally not for fabric buttons and gathering at the waist tells me they're hiding a fat bum.  Please don't get me started on polka dots.  Unless a woman has an abolutely stunning figure (and I'm being kind), polka dots stop in the kids department.

 While we're at it, the pattern on the first dress evokes my friend's re-upholstered settee.  It's furniture fabric.

There's always been gathering in the back.  You may not be able to carry it off but many women can.  And there are no boobs on the second dress which is what Jamblessed said.  I can't speak for your figure but those are not "boobs."

Yah, too sheer and well, cheap.  Sorry if your summer closet is overflowing with maxi dresses, and I know you're super thin, but maxi dresses shout fat, lol.

Me likey!  I would get it hemmed 4 inches.  It's one of those pretty colors I wouldn't get many wears out of ~ I'm sure it'd get a stray mark when I'm not looking.

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.

How old are you?  Hasn't the fitness craze passed thru your area?  And I think only genetics give women saddle bags.  Easily solved if one wants to, ha!

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.

To the grocery store.  I don't like "saving things."  Not in that color though, but a shade or 2 darker.  Ya gotta live.

I am not sure why anyone would be "sorry" about someone else not sharing her color aesthetic. I can't wear maxis because of my size, but even if I could, I'm not going to buy clothes that will restrict my movement. I don't see how you would wear that kitted maxi too many times without stretching if out in unflattering ways, nor could you walk in a normal stride. I gave up uncomfortably restricting clothes close to forty years ago and have never regretted it.

OMG, upholstery, Yes.  That's what that pattern looks like to me too.

Insofar as polkadots on the second picture, I do think some small polka dots like that can be flattering on some figures.  About the cut, is that gathering supposed to hide tummy bulge then?  Fooled me too, I thought it was the back.
