to the max.

been looking everywhere for a maxi skirt, but just can't find one. dawned on me that this maxi dress, which is a little big on top anyways, could pass as one. i loosened the straps so that the empire waist actually hung at my waist, creating a waist. i probably would belt it for more definition, but i didn't have to with this fifteen year old leather vest that i'm happy to use again. it criss crosses, snaps, and cinches at the waist. threw on the fur just because i needed to get more wear out of it.


(dress, old navy; leather vest, wilsons; faux fur vest, material girl (macys))

  3. that was a great idea to drop the waist! i looks really great, especially with the leather vest. the fur was a nice touch- i think this look is very bohemian-looking. maxi-skirts are so hard to put together sometimes, especially because they are so different as a trend, but i really like what you did. i love your bracelet, too btw- it's really cool!
