LA CATRINA de LA Moda: what I wore: maxi dress

Sep 30, 2010

what I wore: maxi dress

Stuck in the middle







Yes Ladies, and gents, okay ladies....I am stuck in the middle of Summer and Fall.  My heart, brain, and closet scream FALL, but this horrible LA heatwave screams Summer. I have some very special Fall purchases that I was eager to wear, I am afraid that by the time the weather here in LA allows me to wear my fall goodies, I will be over them.  About this outfit, the mixed prints, and dark tones are Fall, however scroll down to my footwear and you will see Summer.... I prove my point! I am stuck in the middle!
hoping that this stubborn weather gives in soon!

Ari, I totally LOVE this maxi dress. It's sorta mimics a zebra print.. and I love that you did a leopard/cheetah print belt. Fabulous!!! I been reading how hot it is in SoCal. Cuh-razy! It's hot and humid here too, but not crazy like there!

Hope you are doing well.

xx Love & Aloha

Great mix of prints! Looks really cute!

And ughh I know how you feel about this weather! Its such crap and I am not enjoying it. I want to wear tights! Haha I get so jealous seeing everyone else not in california embracing the beginning of fall while we are still in summer mode.

Haha I keep reading about this heat wave you guys are having down there but it's really so fallish up here it's hard for me to imagine it! Don't worry the cold will come soon!

Love this outfit, you look lovely as always!

the ethnic-ish print of your dress and the leopard print belt looks just amazing...don't worry about being stuck in the middle...due to global warming, we haven't felt colder months here in PI..everyday feels like summer. haha!

I love how you mixed animal prints...I remember not too long ago hearing someone say you are never to wear more than one animal print at a time...they obviously were wrong!!
