It's all in the details Maxim overload.

I really love looking at a fit and seeing details. The unexpected lines and patterns or textures. I am a full on maximum person when it comes to my clothing.

So my recent quest to find affordable fashions that can grow with me for a while I've decide to purchase some year round dresses. This is one of them. A nice dark brown dress with intresting details at the top.

As far as maximum dressing goes this is one of my favorite fits and probably will be repeated as often as I can. The black top is a sweater cold shoulder 3/4 length sleeve that is turning into a workhorse staple. The leggings are a snakeskin animal print that I've had for years and wears like iron. The boots are comfy and have a side zip so I don't have to keep tying them up. It's getting harder and harder to bend down

The denim coat/jacket was an eariler summer find from the thrift. I'm only going to be wearing it for a short amount of time but I love the detail of lining inside. The scarf was also a new to me purchase it reminds me of a lions mane. The purse holds everthing i need.l I'm finding that I don't want to carry much stuff. This whole fit was created from Thrift stores. My hat is the only thing purchased new by a wonderful nationally known hat maker called Sconi.

This is me around week 18. So included a side shot to see the progression. I'm in my 19th week currently and counting.

As usual all are welcome. Lurkers, Comment, and anyone in between.
