Summertime Maxi + Giveaway

Y'all.  I'm obsessed with this dress from The Mint Julep Boutique.  Like, it's kind of unhealthy.  I want to wear it every night.  I'd even be down to snuggle it.  For once, I found a maxi dress that doesn't make me look like a giant.  I have this love-hate relationship with maxis, right?  Right.  All you tall people out there understand.  As for you short people, just earmuff it for now.  So I'm 5'9, and most maxis come to my ankles or worst {#yikes}.  They make me cringe and I just. don't. get. it.  There are tall people who wear maxis, ya know?  Throw in some extra material because short people can always get them altered.  BUT, with this stunner, I wore 4.5 inch wedges and it still covered my shoes.  Lawd hallelujah, pinch me, it can't be real.  How pretty is the embroidery on this dress, too? Fab, I tell you, FAB.  
It's called the "Something Extra" Maxi.  They sure did name that correctly because I can tell you what that something extra's some extra long material---BOOYAH.  {Yeah, I still say booyah, ya got a problem with that?}.
Also, I'm 99.9% sure that I wore this dress wrong.  Apparently, from the picture on the model, the straps are supposed to cross over in the front, but I'm thrilled that I got it wrong because I think it looks a lot better the way I have it.  {I'll try not to let it go to my head though, but I can't make any promises.}
