“Favorite Summer Dress”


Description from Deb Harding: So I'm trying to capture the design and colors of mu favorite summer dress. Which unfortunately I haven't been able to wear the past 2 maybe 3 summers. Partially weight gain mostly just too jiggley. Sigh! My goal is to wear this by June and I mean OWN it. Need to start going dancing again. Nothing like a weekend of salsa dancing to burn that fat!!

    Your dress must be a “knock-out” with these colors! Wish I could join you for dancing, I need to get in shape too! (Oh, well, after the holidays…)

    Blasted sideways photos…stupid so-called smart phone.

    It definitely is one hot dress. Clingy, low-cut but not short. I’m so upset with myself for getting out of shape again. I had worked so hard at it. But I had a back injury, then a broken foot, then another back injury.

    (head tilted) It’s a very pretty dress, Deb! The flower pattern looks “Jacobean”. Get your dancing shoes on!

    Ok the pick goes into my faves! I have a couple of belly dancing tapes I dance to when I feel the need to exercise, it’s a lot of fun.

    Deb, you captured your beautiful dress perfectly with the choices in your wonderful pick! :D

    Alas — so many of us have the same problem — being too short for our weight! LOL ;)

    LOVE IT!
    The blue haze agate and the muddy pearls are awesome together for anybody’s dress!
    The flowers and filigree pieces have captured the pattern in your dress.
    Go for it girl! OWN that dress!

    Lynn, LMBO at that. At 5’3 & 1/2 (don’t forget that half) I’m definitely too short for my weight. Its not fair my brother got all the egs. But I got all the hair so…trade off.
    Thanks you ladies. Guess I got some exercising to do.

    hiya, Deb…gorgeous floral print & depiction in your pick!…luckily you have 6! months! …it’s already summer here (in Oz) & i had NOTHING TO WEAR (ie. not a thing would fit my chocolate binging er..tum) to a younger friend’s 60th; at The American Club, no less!…maybe we need a ‘Big Girls Blouse’ challenge as well! LOL!

    HaHa Big Girls Blouse challenge. Okay tjats one I would not want to win due to the blouse being waaaaaa to large.
    Its depressing to look in your closet and see all these great clothes that you love and yet just don’t fit.

    Thanks. Australia is someplace I.have always wanted to visit.!!!
