Maxed

I don't know if you've noticed but I do not wear Maxi dresses. Why? Haven't got a clue. I find em', I sell em'. Never once thought to keep one for my self. I mean they're all too perfect for a tall lady so one would think my 5'11 frame would own at least one! Now I do!! I was getting ready to list this little lady in the shop tonight and I looked at the photos and was like, wait, I should keep this. Right?! You tell me. Wanna see it in my closet or available in Dethrose?? Oh, and its cotton:) 

 I love the elastic collar and arms. And who wouldn't love the wiggle shape with a ruffle hem?! I do feel a bit sassy walking in this number.

I think you should keep it. The dress looks amazing on you. I love the shape.

If it doesn't fall to the floor, wouldn't it be considered a Midi?
Darling dress regardless.

Unfortunately Kayla, this is a maxi, on my frame this is as long as a maxi falls. Best.

My sister has a joke about maxi dresses... "They're almost as sexy as the mormon underwear underneath them."! Ha! But this is not the case on you in this dress, I think it suits you just lovely.
By the way I had lots of fun shopping your pop up camper at second fridays! Very happy with my purchase and can't wait to run into you again! Everything was so neatly displayed I couldn't help but buy something. :)

I read the the title of the post and thought "Karyn? Maxi? Never saw her in one!" And damn, you look good. but you look good in everything. I think I tell you to keep everything you find because you look precious in everything, but then you wouldn't have any sort of income. I think you look great in this!

Love this maxi number on you. I'm quite a bit shorter so maxi dresses don't always look good on me. You look fantastic in everything you wear and this dress is no different. Love the red shoes too!
