My first encounter with Maxi- as we will call her- was in 2003, for multicultural day at Cardinal Newman; where I wore my mother's Philippine-ethnic-print maxi (now aged 29yo & in pristine condition).
>>> Fast forward to 2009 and my love for Maxi is evident, if not obsessive. *a little background info, most of my formal dresses I've opted to wear long gowns versus anything shorter because I think I have 'chicken legs' (goes back to my childhood) anyway, as I digress, Maxi is a MUST and my ultimate fave summer fashion-piece.
I just bought one like #3 below, but in purple!
