Maxi Dresses That Cover 40+ Arms

maxi dress with long sleeves1Hi Deborah,

I love maxi dresses! I remember wearing them in the 60’s and 70’s.

My daughter always tells me, “If you wore the style the first time around, you shouldn’t wear it when it comes back.” And, the truth is, I don’t want one that shows all the cleavage or my arms.

I like dresses with color and print. Have you seen some fun, dresses that work for women our age? Thanks, Nancy
