Trend: Maxi Dressing

cincinnati fashion stylist This street style photo caught my eye–I love the Laura Ingalls-meets-dominatrix mashup of sweet maxi dress + sky-high stripper heels. I noticed quite a few romantic-ish maxi dresses on the Fall 2013 runways as well:

You could easily come up with your own interpretation of this look for Spring–because really, who wants to wait ‘til Fall? I found a sweet floral frock and red tank dress at Sloane; and you could just as easily raid the racks of your local thrift shop or vintage store for a ‘70s Gunne-Sax/’90s grunge number. And ridiculously high platforms are everywhere, so finding sexy shoes is not a problem.

I’m getting all excited just thinking about traipsing down the street in a prairie dress and killer heels, maybe with a trilby or a beret jauntily tipped to the side… Now will somebody please tell this Mother Nature chick to cut out all the snow and bring on the Spring already?

    I love maxi dresses. I just wish I knew a dressmaker that could make the ones I see in my head. If only sewing one myself was easier.

      I am the worst sewer EVER, so I feel your pain!

    I love maxi dresses, I just feel like they never look right on me, boo!

    I really love that first one and how the shoes really make the look special. A great pair of shoes can change everything!

    I recently stumbled across and found that they have some really great shoes at fair prices. Plus, they’re having a sale of 20% off womens shoes. Check it out!
