Let's talk about maxi's (skirts, not pads. )
I am a lover of all things modest.
When trends come alive that allow me to fly my modest flag freely, I am alive with excitement!
I have recently renewed my zest for fashion magazines and by so doing discovered many trends that have inspired me. The long skirt/dress is one of many. This trend takes on two faces: full-blown maxi status (to the ground) and past the knee-tea-length (I'm a poet, now I know it.)
As I was concentrating about this topic, I couldn't believe how many celebs and runways I saw that are supporting this trend! My cheeks are flushed with excitement! (or maybe it's the new MAC Cremeblend blushes giving me my rosy glow. Oh well. Either way.)
I was in Urban the other day and saw this 100% silk dress that's kinda tea-length in front and longer in the back (thus representing and satisfying both trends, la-dee-dah) and was super stoked cause it was ON SALE from $90 to $30...so I bought it. And I love it! (besides the mean static cling that comes from the DNA of the material. Boo. Any static guard suggestions?)
Anyway. Here's a few of my flavorite (new word = your favorite flavor or kind) representations of this trend:
Oh, HI Olivia Palermo, aren't you just stunn-ing in this skirt.
Also, the dress on the left: dee.iii.eee. DIE.
Alexa Chung, why are you so fabulous?
Does anyone else need an accordion pleated skirt ASAP?
On a completely unrelated note, what in the H-E-double-hockeysticks is going on with the pictures and layout right now?? Why I oughta...
