I was a bit shocked (and happy) when I tried on this LOFT maxi dress and realized the length was just perfect. Yes, perfect. At first I tried on the small in petite and saw that it was actually too short. I didn't give up just quite yet so I moved on to the regular section (for the taller girls) and grabbed an extra-small. Voila, with the right wedge shoes, I was able to wear this maxi dress comfortably without having to worry about tripping.
With the cardigan, it can be worn in the office where it could get rather chilly. Maxi dresses are casual elegant, chic and downright comfortable (which is a must for us Mommies!):
Maxi Dress: LOFT
Wedges: BCBG Maxazria
Makeup: Bobbi Brown and MAC Cosmetics
Okay, by special request, here is a picture of the shoes I wore that made the dress the perfect length without any hemming needed. Of course, I cannot opt to wear flats with this dress unfortunately then it will be too long. But these BCBG shoes are so comfortable that I don't mind not wearing flats =) ....
I have seen "maxi-dress disasters" where the person wearing it was either tripping on the dress or had to hold it while walking. What's the fun in that? And for this reason, I've avoided the maxi dress. Thank you LOFT for making such beautiful and comfortable maxi dresses. I have now ordered my second one from you and can't wait to wear it! .. the hibiscus print maxi dress (pictured below):
Go ahead and try one on and let me know how you like the maxi dress. And if it doesn't, no worries it won't hurt my feelings one bit =) ....
