The thing about maxis, as what I have read on ehow.com is that it has this common design of having a dramatical upper portion either in a halter or strapless style. It enhances the bust and never fails to look women much thinner and sexier than they actually are. This is the magic of a long day dress that has been passed on through different generations.
The touch of an open back here is another feature of a maxi dress that is classic. It adds more attraction without even showing that much of a skin. The open back seems just like a teaser for people to look more into the outfit you are wearing and see the beauty of the dress. I personally like everything about my outfit because of its simplicity and the neat print it has in the dress.
As you notice, the dress basically has this pattern of having a tight fit from the neck down to the hips and from the hips downward it slowly starts to widen its hems and cuts. The whole drama of the dress plus th cooperative sea breeze in the location wherein we had our shoot perfectly complements each other and exactly the reason of the magnificent shot!
And hitting on the kind of make-up I decided to put on, it also blends well on the dress because it was just a light touch of the nude colors and a pink matte lipstick. So I still have that o'naturale look.
