Just Another Maxi

Dress- Gap

Dress- Gap


What I like about this dress is that it has the illusion of being long, but it actually falls just above my knee. This means that, compared to a regular maxi, it doesn't swamp me in fabric and make me look too old. As I wrote in my previous post about the 70's, maxi dresses have made a huge comeback in the last  couple of years, and although I don't pay much attention to trends when dressing myself, I was more or less dead on with this dress. 

The dress, overall, has a nautical feel to it. The sort of Missoni style stripe pattern imitates the waves in an ocean, and the straps of a sort of sailor knot connecting it to the dress. In addition to this, the fabric is very light and easy, something easy to slip into for everyday wear. 

Do you like this dress?

  20. A maxi reaches your shoes. Thats just a dress. Its not a mini, but its a long ways from a maxi. Read up on your definitions. It sounds ignorant to be so wrong. I am not being mean here. But the dress is simply NOT in ANY WAY a MAXI! Haven't you seen maxi dresses in stores and noticed that they go to the floor? All that is is a dress thats too big for you.

    1. I do realize that my dress is not a maxi, but in fact a midi. My point of naming this post as being a maxi was to illustrate what I pointed out in my last post, which is the general influence of the 70's lately, and thus, the influence of the maxi. If you noticed, I did say that "it has the illusion of being long, but it actually falls just above my knee. This means that, compared to a regular maxi, it doesn't swamp me in fabric..." Really my point is that it gives the illusions of being very long. Sorry for the confusion.
