A GLAMOROUS MAXI DRESS


I have had my eye on this beautiful ASOS Curve pleated maxi dress since its 1st appearance on their website. When I went back to the website a couple of weeks later and it was still there I decided to go ahead and buy it. I LOVE IT!! It is a glamorous version of a maxi dress. The color is called minx (a sort of grayish light purple) and it is super long which I need because I am 5' 8" so if I put on some 4" heels I'm 6' tall!!! The dress fits me perfectly throughout the waist and hips however the chest area is too large. I will have to have it tailored but until then I just applied a broach. I was not comfortable with how low it was along with the fact that it is sleeveless so I threw on my Ralph Lauren cardi. I am wearing my platform Jeffrey Campbell wedges and some vintage pearls. Hope you likey! Kiah 


Dallas just got its 1st In and Out Burger so we decided to go there for dinner tonight. It was a mad house but I have to give the staff mad props because they were super friendly and efficient! These Dallas peeps have never been to one but my hubby and I are from Arizona so we know all about the In/Out Burger! YUM!!

LOVE!!!!! you are so gorgeous like a queen or a princess =) ahhhh!!!!!(I'm sighing!!!) maxis are always romantic but this one is 100% glam all the way the old Hollywood way!

Oh Kiah, I totally love it! This dress is amazing! I've never seen a maxi dress with a pleated skirt! The color is fantastic. Just like the previous Laura said.. very old Hollywood! With the pearls and that brooch, it's such a pretty look!

You look fabulous! I was thinking I might be too old for a maxi dress (54) but after seeing this I just have to have one. I've got to dig through my pattern stash and see if I have any. TFS

Savannah said...

Ahh, I love this! You look so pretty and I love your hair like this! I bought a black maxi from F21 a couple of months ago, and it was too long so my Nana hemmed it. I have yet to wear it because I don't know if I look silly being all of 5'3'' !

PS: I think you're out of your mind about me modeling! I'd love to do it, but I don't think I could.

I'm surprised no one has commented about your height--when I tell people my height, I usually round it up to 5' 3", lol! Anyways, I really like your solution of the brooch. Another possibility is layering a camisole underneath, although I know it's hot in TX!!

MIchelle @ Radiant Brown Beauty said...

This is so cute! I could totally see it hiding my muffin top! LOL

I've been looking at that dress for weeks, too, on ASOS. I think I'll wait for it to go on sale. Hopefully, my size won't be sold out by then.

The dress is beautiful on you and I love your hair. Maybe one day you can do a tutorial?
If you think the v is low in the front you can always put maybe a lacey or close to the body tank on until you get the maxi tailored.

I don't know if we have an In/Out Burger in my area, sounds like it was delish.

Nekiah I wanted to thank you for including me as one of you blog favs, it truly is an honor to me and I feel so special.

You are so pretty, stylish and confident.

Hugs...
