This gorgeous maxi is the last item in my recent Sammydress order at only $10. It was actually one my hubby thought I should get. What can I say other than he certainly has good taste?! The colors really make accessorizing fun because there are so many possibilities. I accidentally sized up way too much due to the waist measurements so I needed to do some altering before wearing it. The measurements are when the elastic waist is not stretched at all and there is a lot of give so I would only size up one size-not 3! But it was nothing a while on my sewing machine couldn't fix and now it is perfect.

I was actually inspired to wear this dress recently because the darker colors remind me of berries and blackcurrant, one of the key notes in my new Bamboo eau de Parfum from Fragrance Outlet. I am incredibly picky about my perfumes (in fact there were only two I like before getting this one). Floral, berry scents with musk base notes really appeal to me so this fragrance was perfect to add to my (small) collection. I've been enjoying wearing it!

Shopping at Fragrance Outlet was a breeze! You can shop by gender, brand, product type, or price. Each item has a description of the scents included and recommended products. The entire experience of shopping was positive...the product was shipped quickly using 2 day priority shipping. It stayed positive even when my package was lost. After a week I contacted their customer service. I was called back within 30 minutes and sent an email explaining they shipped out a new product to me that day! I received it later in the week beautifully packaged with several samples to try as well. I wish more stores had such great customer service!

  2. Ooh I love that dress--those colors are so pretty! I've been using the same bottle of perfume for WAY to long (Chance by Chanel, I love it) because I rarely remember to wear it! I need to try something new I think!

    And what a great maxi!! I didn't realize you did your own alterations too? Isn't it so convenient (and economical?)

  21. Beautiful maxi! I love the bold colors and fun print of the skirt. Sometimes the sizing can be really tricky, so I'm glad you were able to remedy the waistline.
