A Maxi Dress for Fall: Fashion Video

A Maxi Dress for Fall

A maxi dress for fall is the subject of this fashion video. The swirls of brown, orange and beige in the print make this maxi dress one of my favorite fall frocks. Of course, autumn in Los Angeles is not like autumn in other places. Here the months of September and October are often the hottest of the year. The day we took this video was no exception. It was bright, sunny and warm.

Its one of my favorite photography venues and has been the backdrop for many of my favorite outfit posts like A Red Blouse on a Warm Day and A Summer dress in the Fall.

Accessorizing the Maxi Dress

To make what is essentially a summer dress look more like a fall outfit I chose my accessories carefully. A heavy chain necklace and wide bronze cuff bring out the brown swirls in the dress while my orange-red polish picks up the orange in the print. Although python can be worn year round I always think it looks more fall than spring.

      Hi Pam, Thanks so much for your nice compliments! I’m glad you like the video, and the cuff. I think it’s vintage.

    Lovely dress (well worn by you), great bracelet and necklace. And the video was very nice.
    I liked the bit where you see the dress around your legs with the circles swirling.

    Very cute maxi dress. I love maxi dresses. Yeah, fall here is . . . currently the high will be 56 degrees . . . cool. When spring returns, I will be happy to pull out my maxi dresses again. Oh, I like the polish going to see if I can find it.

      It’s still warm here in LA, though the weekend we took the video it was more hot than warm! Thankfully it’s cooling off so I’ve been wearing my real fall clothes more often.
