Maxi-mise your Potential

I'm not really much of a maxi-dress person. I always thought I was too short for them, but then I figured if Rachel Bilson can look good in them, why can't I? She is my height after all. Although unfortunately for me, that's where any physical similarity ends.

I  already owned one maxi, a traditional 100% silk one that I bought in Bali but it's not something I wear often.

So lately I splashed out on this maxi from Topshop. A couple of years ago I saw a picture of Naomi Campbell wearing a similar one (also from Topshop), but to my dismay, I could not find it anywhere. When I saw this, first online, and then in store, I just had to try it on. And then I just had to buy it.

Maxi dresses are great because they hide all manner of sins, and I can just imagine wandering around somewhere hot and lovely wearing this, sandals, and a braided hair style.

So I guess the moral is: this Summer, take your fashion to great lengths and maxi-mise your potential.

Ciao for now,
