I fell in love with this look from Anthropologie as soon as I saw it.
Truth be told, I am scared silly of maxi dresses since I am so short that I am oft mistaken for a long lost Roloff sibling.(Which, by the way is one of my favorite shows and I would love to live with the Roloff's...except that Matt would probably drive me crazy!)
I know not every style looks good on every body, so I have always just had the mind set that long + me = major fashion blunder.
That being said, I stalk Merl's lookbook almost daily salivating at the mouth over this maxi dress and terrified to pull the trigger.
Although I desparately want it.
When I found this black maxi dress by Talbots while thrifting for a mere $6 I was willing to take the chance.
I mean, I could at least get some decent blog pictures out of it right?
So here it is, From Ad to Had!
I wore a thrifted 80's Sasson jacket with an old New York & Company scarf and an Express belt.
What do you think?
Are me and maxi's like peas and carrots?
Or oil and water?
And more importantly, should I buy Merl's dress?
I really, really want to own it.
