Twirling in the Holidays + Burgundy Maxi Dress

Holiday Maxi Dress

I first showcased this burgundy maxi dress last year as part of a Three-Part Valentine’s Day series (See that here). I loved it then and I still love it now. When we were in the planning stages of our London trip, I scoured hotel ballrooms specifically for this dress. (London recap this week, I promise.) The ballroom at the Waldorf Hilton London was absolutely gorgeous, bright, and airy. I could just close my eyes and imagine a 1930s event taking place and me walking into the ballroom.

I was so excited to take photos at this hotel in this dress. It was an absolutely marvelous shoot. Talk about happy! Happy until I saw the proofs. The majority of the photos were blurry. My heart sank and I could have cried. So it was VERY easy finding photos for this blog post because very few of them were clear. OK, enough of the pity party.

About the dress: It’s gorgeous! I practically love just about every maxi dress. #nosecret I love the deep wine color! I felt beautiful in it. I twirled and twirled and twirled in it! As you can see, it’s a very twirlable dress and would make for great Holiday photos. And the icing on the top: It’s VERY affordable. The only thing missing was a cocktail in hand!

    Girl I love this dress and color on you. Who says you can’t wear maxis in the fall/winter months.

    Love the dress. Maxi dresses are just so comfortable! Great color and I love the tie in the front. Makes it very feminine.

    What a magnificent dress, I can see this be worn to family dinner and christmas service and a fancy night of new year’s eve. I love the burgundy coloring as well

    Oh Candy! You are gorgeous and your dress is a dream!! It’s a pity many of your pictures were blurry but the ones you posted are absolutely fantastic!! I never look good in this kind of wine or muted reds because I’m so pale, I try to dress in more vivid colours, but I would like so much to be able to rock such an elegant color!!
