Long Story Short…

I’ll never forget my first maxi dress: tie-dyed pink and orange with a scoop neck, long sleeves, and plenty of skirt. I wore it with brown suede boots, a black floppy hat, and mutli layered earthtone beaded necklace. I wore it more than anything else I had at the time. I felt rich, hot, fashionable, and flirty in it. So in homage to a great look that still has a style vibe all its own, I offer you a few outfit of the day inspirations for the uninitiated and fans alike…

A few looks from some of my favorite celebs and bloggers;

Great dress from Bluefly but no styling…

Now think of this same dress with these accessories:

These two bracelets  below match the colors in the dress. Add a few more of your own gold bracelets and make a stack. Now we are getting somewhere. You don’t have to make the arm party that busy but do add 1-3 more bits to the originals.

The shoes shown for this dress are frankly “old lady”.  Today we want to go for a more relaxed glam look. Here are two pairs of sandals that would look great with this dress:

BaubleBar has the bestest earrings ever:

Take all these ideas and build yourself a great maxi look. You probably have some of these thing in your own closet. If  you don’t and you’d like to put together a pretty Maxi outfit of the day, then check  Modcloth for some of the prettiest maxi’s at the nicest prices.
