vertically fashioned


AS A BLOGGER, I feel like I always have to find unique and creative ways to re-style pieces in my wardrobe. The toughest for me? Maxi dresses. I tried so hard to make this lovely patterned one from the Gap (on sale right now!) different than when I styled it here in Whistler, but I kept coming back to the same thing: a belt, flats, and a cropped jacket. Then, I decided, why not let the dress shine? It's such a key piece in my wardrobe, why not let it have another blog post where the focus is all on the dress. The bonus? It makes me feel like my 5'1"frame is 6 feet tall!

Are maxi dresses a key item in your wardrobe? How are you styling them?
Enjoy your Wednesday everyone!

  3. This dress looks so great on you! I know it wouldn't on me because I'm very pale and short, but it's just perfect on you...

  11. Super cute. I love showing off the dress alone, or on a colder day I pair it with a cute sweater and style it more as a maxi skirt.

  17. Adore those shiny cap toes! And this is great styling...the dress is super elegant and makes you look miles tall...but the relaxed accessories and fun hat keep it breezy.

  18. Love how you styled it here and in the original post! That is definitely a stand-out dress, and looks fabulous on you! You look so much taller than 5'1" (something I struggle with too because I'm only 5'2")! LOVE your style, and shout out from a fellow Canadian!
