I recently picked up a Forever 21 maxi dress from my coworker who bought it online and found it to be too small for her. I wore it out to celebrate my birthday with the girls and when I saw the pictures, I thought, “Wow, I look REALLY tall and thin.” (I’m 5’1″.)
Here’s a picture of me in the dress I bought from my coworker. I think the pattern of the dress also helps with the long and lean illusion. This one is actually a bit shorter than I usually like my maxi dresses to be, but it turned out ok. I don’t like that the length of maxi dresses has come up a couple inches – is that a part of the recession too? 😉 I like my maxis to graze the floor when I’m wearing tall shoes.
Forever 21 Tie Dye Stripes Maxi – $19.80 I love this dress! Might have to snatch this up!
LC Lauren Conrad Striped Tiered Dress – $45.00 I love the fullness of the bottom tiers!
Ten Hearts Paisley Maxi dress – $43.10 I am a sucker for paisley. The ruffle top is so romantic. I can see myself wearing this for a stroll down the beach, flip flops in hand….
Love Maxi Dress – $76.00 I love the simplicity and color of this dress; makes it very versatile. Style this with a tee and blazer to make into a maxi skirt. Add a pop of color with red, coral or turquoise. The options really are endless with a dress like this!
