The Long and Short of It


So I don't usually post my outfits (although it's something I've been contemplating lately) but when I saw this on Everybody Everywhere, I just had to since I just bought a maxi dress a couple of weeks ago.


I wasn't always the biggest fan of maxi's, since I'm a short gal. Long dresses just emphasize my short-ness. Something I really don't like. I want to be tall!! But I saw this dress at forever21 and I just had to have it. It's perfect for something comfy but cute on a summer day. But it can also be worn on chilly days like today. (It was rainy in Philly, too! Blah!) I may just be a maxi convert.

Dress: Slub knit Maxi Forever21
Denim Jacket: Gap
Hot Pink Scarf: a KOP mall vendor! (2 for 1 deal!)
Boots: Steve Madden Intyce
Belt: Forever21
Ring: Francesca's

And did you notice ho much our little Francis Bacon loves it, too! (that's the cat in-case you didn't know) He's such a ham for the camera.

I like the look (and your cat coordinates)! The pink is so spring-y and cheery. I'm glad you posted your outfit so EBEW participants (and others) can be inspired.

@anonomous... It's chalkboard paint from The Home-Depot. Rust-Oleum brush on. The color is described as black chalkboard, but it's actually very dark gray like in the photos.

Thanks for reading :)

@jeanofalltrades...

Many thanks!

My cat was so excited by the photo-shoot, that he just had to participate himself. I was more than willing to oblige since he matched so well ;)
