This was my July 4th outfit. Since it was hot as Hades, I wore the most ventilated, yet still adult party-appropriate dress I own. I’ve worn it for about a zillion weddings.
Usually, you couldn’t pay me enough money to brave the crowds on the Mall to see the fireworks, but B and I were lucky enough to be invited to a party with the most incredible view, so who am I to say no?
No room for the big camera, so we brought along the little Powershot. I was actually quite impressed with the nighttime photos.
M Missoni dress
Wow, the print on that dress is awesome. Buzzy!
Yay, I love fireworks 🙂
this print is actually amazing.
ps. isn't getting invited to random 4th parties the best? although i'm thinking your photos will have turned out better than the ones on my fisheye…
what a fabulous dress! and i love your fireworks pictures. Hope you had a great fourth 🙂
This 102 degree weather is insane! I just want to wear a swimsuit at all times. Unfortunately, that's not really work appropriate.
What Would a Nerd Wear
that dress is GORGEOUS, and you look extra glowy and beautiful in these shots.
Great dress. I love the pattern and the colors. Perfect. Great photos as well and that is a great view from wherever you were.

Wow that dress is so incredible. The print is beautiful. Looks like you had an amazing time, from what I can see of the view.
I actually don't know how to get good night time photos with my big camera, only my tiny point and shoot.
we went to higher ground too but all the fireworks were going on behind trees and buildings and we couldnt see any of them :-/
Beautiful dress! Perfect on you!
your dress is amazing, and so was your view! i hope to find a spot on the mall next independence day for fireworks!
Greta view of DC! I'm jealous. I love the dress. The colors are perfect for any summer party.

Thought process on seeing this:
1. Is that Missoni? It's cute?
2. I want a Missoni!
3. When can I get a Missoni!
Lovely as always dear!
Great dress and so versatile!

i've been living here for 24 years and have never seen the fireworks in DC!! Thanks for posting these pictures!
I can't believe you got such good fireworks pictures with your point and shoot! I took about a billion pictures of our fireworks display and only got one that was halfway decent!
I have yet to be in DC for the 4th or the Cherry Blossoms though I've worked there for extended periods twice.
You look great and I love the dress.
what a great classic dress…I was going to say it was missoni esque nevermind haha
I do hope you had a great holiday weekend. I love what you were wearing. It's very pretty.
