    I loved the maxi dress and the one in dusty pink. So cool and comfy!
    In summers, I wish I could go minimalistic! Maybe I could choose one of these dresses and find some relief.
    Loved this post, Anisha! As much as I am a plain Jane kinda person, I enjoy reading posts on clothes, makeup and accessories! 😛

      You sound like me, Shilpa. I bought a full length skirt on a whim two years ago and haven’t worked up the courage to wear it yet!

        Hahaha! Happens, Corinne….

        Earlier, my mom used to ask me (whenever I wanted a different kind of dress), “Are you even going to wear it?” And, I would quietly put the dress back in its place. 😛
