Maximized Lengths

28 May

 I was beyond excited when I spotted this sexy silk and sheer T by Alexander Wang maxi that I had long lusted after at the San Francisco Nordstrom Rack. First of all, I didn’t even realize NR carried Alexander Wang (awesome!). And secondly, since I’m a 5’1” shorty I typically have a tough time when it comes to maxi’s but as you can see I totally lucked out with this one! I’ve been waiting for the perfect occasion to wear it and recently pulled it out for a date night with my guy. It clings in all the right places making a statement in itself so minimal accessorizing was needed. I threw on my favorite statement sandals, a gold cuff and out the door we went.

Shopping Confession: I’m all about deceiving the eye in hopes of appearing as tall and let’s be honest, lean as possible. The height of the sandals combined with the flattering cut and length of the dress worked in my favor this time! I think I could have passed for at least 5’4”.


I’ve been gravitating towards all-white, black and denim this spring so it felt good to add some color into the mix, even if it is another neutral.


Wearing:  Alexander Wang Dress from Nordstrom Rack (similar).  Iro Sandals (similar).  Jennifer Fisher Cuff.
