Trend Spin: Striped Midi/Striped Maxi

I am big fan of a midi hemlines. Specially in full skirts and sheath style dresses. Kate Middleton and Victoria Beckham (both of whose style I adore!) wear just-below-the knee hemlines so fabulously! Since I am tall, it is hard to find regular dresses (in my budget) that fall below my knee without looking frumpy. I found some great skirts as ASOS (here and here) that fall below the knee beautifully! I am forever looking for a sheath dress or even blouson dress in that style of hemline. So when I saw this Cynthia Rowley column style maxi dress at  TJMaxx, a quick idea came to my mind - put a belt on the waist and pull the skirt part of the maxi over it to create a shorter (well, shorter than maxi) hemline! It works great with jersey knit fabric, as it stays put like that for long wear! The last picture in the post will give you a better idea!!
Bib necklace - Sears, similar from Dillards, just for $15!
Sunglasses - Lauren Konrad for Kohl's, Similar from Nordstrom, for $22

  4. I agree - I love midi dresses - they look so elegant and classy - you look so cute and you can't really tell you've adjusted a maxi dress because of the horizontal stripes- LOVE It!

  6. Love this length on you! I have yet to try. I tried on the Kate Middleton replica dress from the Issa London/Banana Republic collection which was midi length on me and am still undecided. Have you checked out the collection...thoughts?
