Why Yes Another Sky Maxi

I feel a little MIA lately, but work has been insanely busy…as in working all day, taking a small break for dinner and time with the kiddos, and then back to work at night on my laptop. Not complaining – I love my job. But I miss my blog. (Look, I rhymed!)

So I know last week I talked about patiently waiting for that maxi dress to be on sale at Von Maur. Well…I was waiting for this one to go on sale, too! I don’t have any strapless maxis, and I loved this one. Again, it’s Sky. Love the crochet detail on the top and the dip dye of the coloring.

This was my Labor Day outfit. It was such a beautiful day – I thought it deserved a beautiful dress!

Feeling Like a Rainbow in a Maxi Dress

“Patience is a virtue.”

This saying was definitely my mantra when it came to waiting for this Sky “Barbor” maxi dress to go on sale at Von Maur! I first spotted it in April. The color. The braid work. The fabric that doesn’t wrinkle. I. Wanted. It.

BUT. I refused to pay almost $200 for it.

So I waited. And waited. And waited.

Then, three weeks ago I walked into Von Maur and it was on sale. Over half off! Retailing for $198, I paid only $85. And, my friends, I got it hemmed for free, since Von Maur does that complimentary. (Oh how I love you, Von Maur!)

I know I’ve only got to wear it once before the end of the summer, but that’s ok. Maxi dresses will be back next year!
