Does anyone own the Liz Lange Ultamate Maxi Dress? And how do you like it? What do you style it with?
I own 4 LL maxis – 2 solids and 2 prints. It is a very figure-flattering silhouette. They are jewelry-friendly, so can be worn with so many accessories. I think I have seen a picture of your wife wearing a hat. IMO, it is a very elegant daytime look. I wore an sunhat today. If your wife does not want to be overloaded with jewelry but wants to jazz up the look with a hat- she could tie a long scarf around the base of a brim and let the ends of scarf flow freely on the back. I am also a strong believer in silk flowers – on the hat or just in one’s own hair. Your wife does not need long hair to wear a flower. You can buy so-called "clips for synthetic hair highlights" on ebay, very inexpensively, cut off the fake hair and use clip as a base for the flower. Personally, I am not crazy about crystal pins for hot summer days, but if your wife enjoys this look – clips will hold the weight of relatively heavy pins. If you choose to persue flowers – I recommend silk or rubberized sillicone. They look like real flowers and add no hastle with adjustments, always looking perfect.
For the evening – there are no rules. If your wife is demure- there’s no need to wear heavy unconfortable pieces. If she enjoys big and bald – it is very appropriate too. I know VERY MANY posters would strongly disagree with me, but I will just express my opinion. Unless your wife is an avid gardner and never wears gloves, or engages in some hard physical labor – I would not recommend any stainless jewelry. PERIOD. I see that some vendors offer designer-inspired looks in stainless… But there’s a whole world of David Yurman, John Hardy, Barbara Bixby, Judith Ripka and so on. Yes, stainless is a fraction of the cost, but it looks exacly what it costs. It is your and your wife’s choice, afterall. But as a woman, she would prefer ONE John Hardy over 20 stainless. People who say "this looks real" (meaning original designs) are not sincere. However, if you and your wife enjoy variety, I suppose Stainless is a viable alternative.
Small tokens of love and appreciation are just as important to a woman, as expensive gifts are unforgettable. My husband always says "You make love to your wife all day long, every day, not just after a romantic evening"…:heart: The best to you both!
Thats Awsome! Myfun! Thank You!:smileywink:

When I posted Flowers for you all on the conversations thread I forgot to e-mail my wife! at work, she got a little upset that I sent you all Flowers and didnt e-mail Her! Were Good now!( it was the first time I didnt e-mail her rite away) My question is Do you think the Liz Lange Maxie I ordered for her will be enough to get me out?:smileyfrustrated:
Stella and Macie, Thank You so much! this info really helps! Ive seen this quite a bit and I havnt saw anyone Not look good in this dress! Thank You Both!:smileyhappy: Macie I added you to my friends list if thats ok?
Good to see you here at HSN! I own this dress in every color and just love it so much!! It’s very comfortable and extremely flattering and very easy to style for day or night! For day I just wear mine with flats or a nice gladiator sandal in white or a natural color and I also bought the Liz Lange Ultimate Cardigan too. It can match the dress or a solid black can work for all the dress colors.
At night I wear heals and a nice beaded necklace (maybe a pearl set, does not have to be a real pearl set, love Heidi Daus jewelry here too, on sale is always a bonus also Emma Skye is both silver and gold in metal tone with great clearance pieces she could mix and match too) and earrings, bracelet or even a pretty shawl or scarf will work around the shoulder’s or neck. Some of her dresses have "Ms. Lange’s signature buckle in gold" so you may want to stay with a gold tone in jewelry to match if she wears jewelry in a metal color! This dress will go everywhere and packs great too for travel, just roll up and go. The fit is true to size I would say, for me. And the material needs no slip, very easy to care for and not see-through at all!! The material is extremely top-notch, very well constructed garment too and most of her garments have the 95% rayon, 5% spandex split which is a jersey stretch knit, but NOT extremely stretchy that it will lose it’s shape!! I highly recommend ALL Liz Lange’s clothing, just love her!!
PS. R.J. Graziano is having a TS on Monday for jewelry so you could keep your eye out and see what he brings that she could add to her dress wardrobe for a great price too!! Just a thought too! It looks like it might have some stimulated stone work in it, not sure, but take a look!
Hope this helps Steve!! Your wife will love it!!
Cheers and lots of luck~Stella. :womanhappy:
Hi steve-65 I own numerous Liz Lange dresses. I wear mine with thong jeweled sandals, I also wear them with a great pair of BCBG wedge sandals that look as if they are scalloped, also flats. I always buy the scarfs and cardigans, and I have shrugs in all styles and colors to wear over my shoulders if I feel the need. If it is too hot I go without. Jewelry, I love to wear my turquoise suite, necklace, bracelet, earrings, ring. I have worn the black and white with coral jewelry as well as a beautiful bronze set that has green settings in it. I also have a sea shell set in white that looks gorgeous with the dress. You can always wear gold or silver jewelry depending on what you like.
You can go dramatic or casual by the shoes and jewelry you wear with it. Hope this helps.
PS Also as the weather changes you can wear jean or leather jacket with boots.
