Maxi on Minetta

Friday, June 10, 2016

You know those outfits that make everyday sidewalks feel like runways? This was definitely one of them. At my (lack of) height I've found the trick to buying maxi dresses without the extra cost of tailoring -- taking advantage of the midi.

In my world, midi skirts become maxis and cropped jeans become full length. Isn't style all about personalization after all? I fell in love with the draping of this midi gem and the way it moves with each step. Plus, any dress I wear that doesn't drag on the ground is a win in my book.

I spent a recent evening in this dress strolling the streets of West Village with my boyfriend, all the while resisting the urge to twirl around like a girl in a rom-com. Style is best when it is met with confidence.

Dress: RACHEL Rachel Roy (in-store only, more options online)
Jacket: Zara (similar here)Shoes: Adrienne Vittadini | Bag: H&M (similar)


  1. Gorgeous dress indeed. Love how you match this feminine dress with that edgy leather jacket. I have the same struggle of finding the right length of maxi dress. Been hunting for this summer and so far no luck yet.

    Happy Weekend!

    Love Ashon

    1. ASOS has a great Petites section if you want to try there! I totally understand the struggle haha. Thanks for your comment!

  2. I love this look Christina, though I can't say I have the same issue as you lol. I'm on the other side of that scale. Regular length jeans are my crop and midi dresses always hit me at my knees.c:

    That being said, I love how you were able to make this dress your own. I mean isn't that what fashion is all about. Oh and those shoes are awesome. I am obsessed with block heels this season.

  8. Yesssss! This dress looks so pretty on you, Christina! You should have just twirled around in the dress, haha! I love how midi skirts and cropped pants are trending; it really does help for shorter girls!
