Outfit 29 - Black Floral Maxi Dress

So, I finally pulled the trigger and bought a maxi dress after seeing some form of a maxi on many other fellow fashion bloggers!  =P  I purchased this particular dress from Ross for $15.  *Sigh* It's not thrifted, I know!  *Hangs head in shame* I tried on several dresses and many were either too long, or surprisingly too short.  That was probably meant to be a mini skirt for a taller person!  Haha.  =P  I don't know if it's the angle of my camera but my feet look so darn big in these pictures!!  >_<

I almost didn't bother to try this on initially because it was a size large.  I went back to it the second time around and decided to try it on anyway since it seemed small enough on the top, with room to stretch.  When I tried it on, I was pleasantly surprised it fit, and the length was decent.  I can wear flats with this maxi dress, which I wonder if it means it's too short??  Being that it is a size large, there is room for growth.  I kinda think I look matronly in this, but at least I know it will definitely work for me when I'm actually expecting (one day)!  :)

I decided to pair this with a jean jacket instead of my traditional cardigan.  :) And, for those of you who commented on my previous two "scandalous" outfits, this is like a complete 180 degrees, right?  ^_~

Here's a close-up of the necklace I'm wearing.  I know it's quite bright and distracting!  It's neon pink!  I purchased this for the beads.  It's long enough that I can probably make a necklace and a bracelet from it.

  1. Pretty cool that just one extra piece (the jean jacket) takes the outfit from dressy to casual. Love the pink of your necklace, too!

  2. You look wonderful! I love this maxi, so nice and flowy. And the jean jacket is great to turn it into a more casual look. Good choice!


  3. Love the jean jacket paired with the soft and flowy dress!

  7. I love maxi dresses. This one was a great choice!

    @simplychic - Thanks for the compliments on the necklace. I love fuchsia too!

    @Little Petite - Thanks!

    @SewPetiteGal - Thanks for making me feel better about my non-thrifted purchase! There are actually many that could be considered maxi dresses in thrift stores, but they all require, sewing alterations type of effort! >_<
