The material is a fantastic, gauzy-linen-wool and it floats around the body making you feel pretty. It also is an amazing mix of tribal-esque prints (something that Thakoon excels at, making him one of my very favourite designers), and all sorts of interesting detail....quasi-ruffles and flaps and whatnot. That is, of course, the technical fashion term for it....flaps.
And the back is a racer back! I love me a racer back!
This is a forever piece that I can wear in every season with just a change of a layer. Today I just returned from tennis, so my underlayer is a very classy (and very grimy) weather-inappropriate athletic tank bra. I know. Gross, right? I was just so excited to try on the dress that I didn't bother to layer properly. But this dress looks amazing with sandals in summer, or can easily be the foundation for something spectacular in the colder months.

What is also super great about a maxi dress is that the garment itself is easily able to balance out some serious statement jewellery, so you can really pile it on...something I rarely do as I am essentially lazy when it comes to styling, avoiding anything that is too fussy. I also decided to go with the no-makeup red lip look. Again, laziness. One product as opposed to fifteen.
