Maxied Out

I know that Everybody, Everywhere isn't until tomorrow morning, but I decided that since I do my posts at night, perhaps the timing would be better if I did them the day before.

This time was much harder for me than the others... because I'm really not a maxi person. I definitely do not possess anything of longer lengths that fits into the realm of casual, so I had to do my best to tone down this purple dress.

  2. Holy cow, you look amazing! Your hair goes perfectly with the outfit. And that dress is soo pretty. I love the sheer/net ruffles.

  3. Such a pretty skirt!! I love the tulle on the bottom, it was so unexpected as I scrolled down. The leather jacket really offsets the flowy, girly skirt well!

  9. You did such a good job with this - I love the mixing of the harder jacket with the super girly maxi, the whole thing just comes together so well!

  12. Lovely, I'm not a maxi person either. You did a great mixing feminine and edgy with the motorcycle jacket. I love the 2 tiers on that dress as well.

  13. Wow, this looks great on you! Why don't you have more maxis? It really works for you.

    I'm going to have to sit this ebew out because I don't own anything longer than knee-length. That surprises me, since I used to have tons of really long skirts.

  14. I love this look on you! It's different that your usual, but it still works. I think the jacket does a nice job of balancing the frill.

  15. I absolutely adore the second picture (and the outfit, and the hair). I have a similar jacket that I often throw on to tone down overly girly dresses. I'm showing this to my mom to prove that I'm not the only person who does it. :)

  16. This looks wonderful; the top knot,the dress, the jacket, I could go on...:)

  17. Crikey Malone! That purple skirt is something else. It looks like it's from a fairytale! I have exactly 1 long dress and it's plain black... Maybe I can muster something interesting up for tomorrow...

  19. You don't need to tone it down - it's a great length on you!

  25. This round was hard for me too, since I'm not great at styling maxis. That skirt is really pretty, and I think you did well.

  26. You might want to think about becoming a maxi person - you look great!

  28. What a cool skirt! I love the layered bottom.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is a great look! The lavendar with black is a nice contrast (so are the materials - I like the soft flowy dress with the biker jacket. You keep it from getting too "dressy.") Terrific!

    ReplyDelete
  30. but this maxi is so gorgeous on you! You should wear more! I don't actually own a lot of maxis (maybe 1 or 2), but they're surprisingly flattering, aren't they? The tier of purple looks pretty too.

  31. I love the draping and cut of your dress. Paired with the texture of the leather jacket you look dangerously hot.

  33. I love your hair like that! Yeah, I really like that dress and the darker ruffle peeping out of the bottom. Way cool with that jacket too! I should have worn a long skirt and sandals today... I decided open toed sandals and tights were a good idea. Soggy feet :(

  34. This feminine/edgy touch is so cool! I just love it and your hair is perfect! You did great,girl!

  35. love the ruffles on your dress. I dont own a maxi dress either, its hard to find one for a petite gal

  36. I definitely get what you mean; I'm not a maxi person either.

    You totally work it though! This whole outfit is gorgeous. Love the color of that dress as well!

  39. Such an amazing dress...love the fabulous hem...great how you styled it with the tough leather jacket!!

  40. I agree that the longer skirt and dress lengths are trickier to style. You did great! I love how you wore this dress as a skirt!

  42. This skirt is absolutely gorgeous! And I definitely think it counts as a Maxi. I myself am a little terrified of the maxi, though I really want to try it. I just don't know where to begin. I think I should just throw something on and see if it works!
