Best of all... POCKETS! Why don't more dresses come with pockets? This could be my new favorite, and I have a lot of favorites in my closet.
Sure enough, it fits like a dream. Ralph says, check it out! Behold, the Time & Tru "Burnout Maxi Dress".
* I'm somewhat old-fashioned. I prefer mid-calf to ankle-length skirts, loose fit, and a modest high neckline that doesn't plunge down to my nonexistent cleavage. Short but full (shoulders covered) sleeves in the summer, wrist-length in cooler weather. That's what I prefer to wear, and that's what I prefer seeing on the ladies.
** If I ever spend more than $30 on a single article of clothing, it's time to admit I have a problem
*** depending on how unsuccessful my diet attempts are going, somewhere between a tight 18W and a loose 24W. You'd be amazed how few skirts and dresses meeting my other requirements are in that size range.

I'd like it a bit shorter and in a different colour. It reminds me of the tunics worn in the TV sitcom 'Plebs', set in ancient Rome and featuring two guys and their (very) lazy slave - men in dresses!!
Like I did.
I'm Marica, a 55 year old girl.
 Not that we do have that many warm days but when we do we make the most of them, when I'm not at work that is. Rumour has it that this Bank Holiday ( this weekend ) we may actually have good weather. Normally a Bank Holiday is a death knell for sunshine, rain being the predominantly item, closely followed by snow and gales.
 Or roll on spring for those of you still in the US in the snowy days of winter-cum-spring.

 The area was originally a repair/supply airfield during the war and the runways were still there over the road when we first moved in. Since then a housing a trading estate has blossomed. Two lakes were stipulated, as part of the planning consent, to control the water table and provide runoff in case of flood.
 I am not fit enough to run continuously so run/walk for the moment. It's 43 years since I did any serious running and I then weighed 7.5 stone, 105 pounds. I now weigh 182 pounds. Most of that is surplus fat and I want to get rid of some of it.
SD, I like the skirt but I suspect it would be far too small for me.
Some of these style of skirts have a chord tie to support the waist and are called " Free size " ......some with the hem nearly down to the
ankles lack a sort of female touch but can be worn in a male context....A beautiful free cool male garment to wear.
In the summer heat, yesterday , I was dressed entirely differently to you......I was not wearing one of my favourite summer skirts; I was wearing
a dark blue below the knee pencil skirt with a hairy sporran and a short argyle jacket....I walked down to the river bank through a wooded area
of Californian Pine Trees. A different soft piece of countryside to explore...........weeladdie
