Rust Maxi Dress With An Embroidered Waist: And Braided Hair

My ‘boho-inspired’ love affair continues with this beautiful hi-low maxi dress. For me, the transitional weather heralds the arrival of full sleeve dresses to the forefront of my wardrobe. The appeal of this maxi dress lies in the embroidered waist which adds an unusual detail to the outfit. The high-low hem line and beautiful balloon sleeves further add to the flamboyance of the dress.

I resisted the urge to pair this dress with a fringed handbag as with the braids and tie-up gladiator sandals, I was starting to feel like an ‘extra’ in the movie Benhur!   Instead, I paired the dress  with a cane clutch that was an annual present from my best friend in the USA . Her and I exchange ‘just because’ presents every summer when we meet and this year I received this beautiful bag. This summer I enjoyed a double bonanza, as thanks to her family trip to Lebanon I also received a ‘I went somewhere and therefore I had to buy you something’ present which is another wonderful tradition we have. These lovely two-tone silver earrings that she got me are right up my alley and look great with this dress.

I am a huge fan of braided hair and I love the elaborate braids that I often see around town. Unfortunately, I have no talent when it comes to braiding hair and these two straight-laced braids represent the extent of my abilities.

Have a fabulous weekend and thank you so much for visiting my blog.

  1. Bestie pressies are wonderful- you always know you’ll get something you love because they know your taste and find things you didn’t think of! My presents from London were wonderful as well, thank you! Maybe I will strike a pose for you soon!

    So happy you enjoyed your summer surprises and have paired them together brilliantly- I didn’t even think of them in the same look. Burnt orange is one of my favorite colors and the wicker and tan hide bag compliment the overall finishes… And of course, you always rock the dangle earrings and they called your name as I roamed the silver and gold market in Bourj Hamoud, Lebanon!

    Looking forward to the next look- perhaps something from our shopping spree that shut down the Vegas shops 😉
