Maxi Dresses and Maxi Catchup

I'm super behind in posting shots of completed blog designs.  I'm even more behind in updating the portfolio section.  I was hoping to get caught up on both this weekend, and then I remembered that Tax Day is coming up, and as usually, I've been a Procrastinating Patty and haven't done mine. Yikes. So I have a date with Turbo Tax and what is sure to be a monster migraine this weekend. I mean seriously, I passed the Georgia bar exam on my first try, yet taxes make me feel like I'm too dumb to walk and chew gum at the same time. Never fails.

So in the meantime, here is a guest post from If you need a tailor-made dress to match a new tailor-made blog design but can't afford the tailor, or if you just don't like the idea of being poked with needles by a seamstress who should have put away her sewing kit back when Reagan was in office, thinks that the maxi dress may be right for you.
Women who do not have time to visit a tailor and have a dress fitted for their body type should consider purchasing a maxi dress. While buying a dress is different from having one tailor made, it can be a viable solution when the dress in question fits all body shapes.  The maxi dress is such a dress. These dresses are known to fit all different types of body shapes. It will flatter you whether you are pear-shaped, apple-shaped, hourglass-shaped, or even boy-shaped.
However, before purchasing a maxi dress, you should make sure the dress you choose is the best for your shape and size, as you want to both look and feel good in it. For example, you probably don't want to pick a dress that is excessively tight or one that is too baggy. You may also want to balance out your problem areas. For instance, if you are heavier on top, you should probably pick a maxi that balances you on the bottom half of your body.  However, if you are heavier on your bottom half, then you'll want a maxi with more fullness in the top area to balance you out there.
With this type of dress you are not really restricted to any one type of undergarment. For example, some women prefer crochet shorts to go with their maxi dresses, as they make them feel both sexy and comfortable. The shorts also help to increase the bottom area and can therefore make a woman look shaplier. If you need to draw attention away from your neckline, then these shorts could be the perfect solution and help create that tailor-made illusion.
There are so many ways to buy and wear a maxi dress. All you need to do is find the one that works best for you.
I have to admit I don't have a maxi dress.  Actually I don't have too many dresses period. I mostly have business suits that I wish I didn't have. I really need to win the lottery or something because a shopping trip and a closet makeover is definitely in order.

Check back next week. If my brain doesn't explode from doing my taxes, I'll try to post all those screenshots of the new designs.
