TGIF!!! I am so, so happy it’s Friday. I have a few things to do this weekend, but mostly I can take some really long walks with the fur girls.
I tried to find a maxi dress last year, but I didn’t really get brave enough to even try one on until late summer, and it didn’t make sense to buy one then. However, I’m truly a little obsessed with them already, and I just stumbled across a Lilly P one that I think I’ll actually go try on.
Here’s the problem… I’m petite, mostly. I’m on the taller side of petite at 5’3″, but almost all of my dresses and skirts are petites, or they require alterations. While I don’t mind having a dress altered, I do try to avoid styles that accentuate my lack of height, and the experts generally agree that includes maxis.
However… this one in particular seems simple enough that SURELY, it can’t pose any real problems (that lobbing a couple of inches off the bottom won’t cure), can it?
I have found a couple of petite maxis, but nothing that has motivated me to even consider going to try it on. So many of them are strapless, and I just don’t do strapless. I’m tempted on this one though… can’t you just see it with a cropped jean jacket, vest… white cropped cardi? Or even a denim shirt, knotted at the waist, sleeves rolled up?
So, what do you think? Are maxis only for women 5’5″ or taller?
What about weekend plans? Anything exciting?
