Our good friends over at the Atlanta-based boutique, Meringue Clothing, recently sent us this gorgeous Ella Moss Autumn Maxi dress to review. Don’t you just love it? The beautiful Jaime King was spotted wearing it at the Ella Moss 10th Anniversary party just a couple of weeks ago – she paired it with the African Queen metallic gold fold-over clutch from Louis Vuitton and chocolate brown strappy sandals from Calvin Klein for a great boho look.
The dress doesn’t need much – we grabbed a pair of brown snakeskin heels from Nicole’s closet, threw on a couple bracelets, and we were good to go. We absolutely love how soft & flowy the 100% printed silk dress is and that the cami lining has adjustable spaghetti straps for a perfect fit up top. We found the elastic waistband to be comfortable too, and think it looks great as is or with a wide leather belt. Although the dress is very light and breezy, we did feel that with its full length and forearm grazing sleeves it was a bit on the warm side for an 82 degree August afternoon. We think the Autumn Maxi is aptly named and that it’s the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe.

This was our first *cough* photoshoot ever, and we have to say to all you ‘outfit of the day’ fashion bloggers out there, You Rock! It is really tough to take decent, let alone good, photos of yourself. Kudos to those of you who do it on a regular basis. Ours photos aren’t that great (please excuse the ugly green house next door and the lomo filter Nicole insisted on using), but you can get an idea of how the Medium fit Nicole who normally wears a size 6 dress. Below you can see the 3 button front and leaf detail on the front ties. One of our favorite features is the strap snap which holds the spaghetti strap in place!
