Midi

There are a lot of things I love about this dress; the color, the print, the fabric that won't wrinkle on matter how much you try. But the length, is where my praise stops.

I do not consider the midi trend to work for me, anything hitting me just below the knee is too long. However the material made me reluctant to hem it, and so in the past I've always gotten creative with safety pins and belts.

But I wanted to try it at it's natural lenght. So I put on my highest heels and went with it.

Oh how do you do it? How do you always look so cute and chic, never a drop of sweat on you!

Love the dress. It looks great on you. I agree that midi length is not always the most flattering length..but there are always exceptions and I think this dress is one of them. I think everything about it look lovely.

Love that coach bag! It looks like the perfect black bag.

That is a beautiful dress.

I think the dress totally works on you at this length :) I'm afraid of this length too, but I actually have an outfit post coming up later this week with a skirt of a similar length...I think it ended up looking somewhat better than I thought!

I love the fit and the print of this dress, it's gorgeous! And even the length totally works with those heels!

Courtney Erin said...

I think the midi length is totally working for you - the heels make it happen.

I think that length looks good on you, but I know what you mean, ha ha, it feels weird.

Oh, that dress is gorgeous! I think most women have the same problem with midi dresses - they look great on other people, but when I put one on all I notice is how gigantic it makes my calves look. Still, I think it looks great on you!

Little-Hat said...

The midi length is definitely a tricky one, but with those nude heels, I think the dress looks wonderful on you!!

From here, that dress looks pretty darned breath-taking at any length :)

It's hard to tell how tall peeps are from their blog pics, but if you're suggesting that shorter women can be midi-challenged, you are correct. I find that I need heels for midis and maxis to compensate for being so low to the ground :P

Ashley J said...

I think this dress fits you like a dream, shows off your tiny little waist!!!

Steph said...

I am always so jealous of your bags! Don't wrap dresses make you fee really womanly?! At least they do for me!

Frannie Pantz said...

Actually I think this dress totally works on you! I love the color and subtle pattern of it.

Style Journey said...

You pulled it off and you look great. The key to midis are high high heels!

I love a pretty wrap dress, so flattering. Fab heels.

Lorena said...

Oh i have to agree this dress is fab on you ! it's a beautiful garment but like you i think midis are hard to pull off, which i think you did!

Heather said...

The longer length works well with this dress, but I agree, it is specific to different items.Sometimes if I wear a below the knee dress I feel too matronly.

Ali Hval said...

You nailed the look, Lyddie! The heels with it make everything just the right length. :D I know what you mean for not being able to work certain trends... I fear I'll never be able to wear those hi-low hemmed dresses and skirts. Ah, well!

Those sunglasses are so chic, too, and of course the vintage coach is always right!

christine said...

Hmm I think the length of the dress works well on you. Paired with the heels, I think it lengthens your overall look!!

Alex Elizabeth said...

These photos are beautiful! I love the dress, but it's definitely true that the midi length is not the best for petites. I wouldn't style it with flats, but I think it definitely works with heels!

Franziska said...

That dress is so flattering on you - your shoulders and arms look tiny!

this is so pretty! I love that coach bag :)

Rose said...

I think the length is gorgeous on you! It might be the heels with it, but… seriously, I think it makes you look taller and accents just the right amount of curves. Looks lovely :)

eek said...

I think you look great in this dress - such a classic fit, you can't go wrong!

Mica said...

I love the print on that dress, and it looks so good with the heels! :)

I know what you mean. I have several dresses that fit me just under the knee and they always make me feel short, stumpy, and frumpy. You however look fantastic in this dress! I think you can rock just about anything really ;)

Midi's usually make me look short but in the case of this dress it works so well on you.

A gorgeous, flattering dress.

Jamie said...

I'm with you - I don't love the length of midi dresses. I think they cut off the legs and for someone like me, with long legs, it really makes me look stumpy!
