If it were appropriate to wear a maxi anywhere and everywhere, I would do it. If I had the chance I would wear maxi's all day, everyday. Its the flowy fabric and feminine quality of the dress that somehow puts me at ease.
It also doesn't hurt that a maxi, like a romper, is an outfit in one, meaning no stressful 2 hours, "what do I wear today?!" scenarios.
Buying this maxi helped me out since I put off buying something for my sisters graduation to the last minute. I ran into every store hoping to find something within my price rage. Well, finally I came to Forever21 hoping, nay praying that I would find something.
|Quite literally, a tree hugger|
I found this dress, in the CLEARANCE SECTION, marked down to $15. I swear to you reader, it was originally $30 (which is a little pricey for Forever21) and was marked down to $15 because one of the loops that held the waist sash was ripped. It's an easy fix if you have some grey thread.
So I bought the $15 dress, wore it to my sisters graduation with a black blazer and some low wedges and looked kind of amazing.
I've learned that you don't always have to splurge if you want to buy something last minute. If I shop at gap or banana there are always some coupons or sales codes valid, a quick google search will point you right to them.
My sister taught me that there is no point in paying full price. In the end almost everything comes marked down so it's just about playing the waiting game.
