Maxed Out

I'm convinced that I'm really 5'7. In my mind, I'm this semi-tall, skinny chick with uber long legs. This idea of mine is often disproved though when I try to wear particular fashion items, such as maxi dresses. I love the idea of maxi dresses, but well, they don't really love me. A few feet of fabric collects in a puddle around my ankles everytime I try them on, and I look like a 10-year old playing dress up.

So it does me no good that Shopbop is giving shoppers 20% off their maxi dresses until this Thursday, February 26 (Just enter TOTHEMAX at checkout). But to all you real tall people, enjoy.

I love the boho chic look of this dress by Issa:


I'm also a fan of this festive dress by Milly.


How cool is this convertible dress by Elizabeth & James? Always great to get multiple uses out of one dress. I quite like the heathered gray version.




This Jill Stuart dress has a very English rose feel. Made for attending a casual garden wedding.


Why, dear god, why was I not born just a wee bit taller? You could've taken an inch off each Victoria's Secret angel and just given them to me. They wouldn't miss it, seriously.

I totally feel your pain. My twin sister always says to me, "Dude. You look like an Olsen Twin. Not good."

*cries*

Now that you pointed that out though, how come those Olsens can wear maxi dresses? They're as vertically challenged as we are!

God that Issa dress is gorgeous! I can kiss the bottom foot of it goodbye though...being our height you know an automatic hem adjustment is in our future.....
