I was raised in Palm Springs and always loved the Mexican influence in our buildings, clothes and especially food. Since I was a teenager in the 1960s, I wanted to wear peasant blouses or those twirly skirts with the ribbons around them. But that was not to be. Nothing that global ever came in plus sizes, even though I was a size 16 in those days.
So when this dress became available as part of the boho chic movement, I was thrilled. It is unlike most of my clothes, which tend to be more minimal, but it makes me happy, it fits perfectly, and it is a great start to Summer.
The Dress also comes in blue or black, and is fairly generous in size. I will probably have it shortened a little since I am only 5’5″. There is lining almost to the hem.
It comes sizes 1X – 6X
The sandals have a zipper up the back which is very useful, and comes in various colors and to a Size 12WW)

My dress was a gift from SWAK Designs, the opinions are my own.
