My Style | Maxi Dress

I posted a picture of myself in this dress on Instagram recently.  I had friends asking me to start sharing more of where I find some of my clothes.  So I decided I will start doing that more often.  My style is simple.  I like to find pieces that work well for my body.  Everyone thinks being tall and slim compared to the average woman makes shopping easy.  But truthfully it’s a challenge.  Every woman has a different issue when she shops.  Being as tall as I am (6’1″ – 1.85m) it’s not easy to find a maxi dress that goes down past ankles.  They are usually resting above my ankles or middle of my calves.  A maxi-dress usually  becomes a midi-dress on me.

So when I find one like this, I can’t pass it up.  I found this one while perusing through one of my thrift hauls.  The Salvation Army was having a 50% off sale on dresses so this one came to a mere $4.99.  The dress still had the tags on it.  So the person who donated, obviously never wore it.  I always get lucky and find these fabulous deals. You can too. It just takes a little patience and knowing exactly what you’re looking for.

Maxi-dress: Salvation Army Thrift $4.99
Belt: Costa Blanca $9.99
Necklace: Intentional by SJM
Gladiator sandals: (unseen) Payless $20
