3 day weekend and Maxi Dresses

I'm 4'11" and finding clothing that fits me is quite difficult. I consider myself to be quite lucky in finding Maxi Dresses that fit lengthwise. Take a look at a couple dresses F21 dresses that I love! I wear these dresses way too much when running errands, can't really run around the house with them though!

I say "eff it" to many "fashion" rules, I will wear a maxi if I want to!! What do you say? Are there fashion rules you just flat out don't chose to follow?
Let's not forget what this weekend means! 

Happy Independence Day!! 

I consider myself quite lucky to live in the states and I try my best to serve my country in any way I can everyday!

I'm off to the pool with my bro, sis-in-law, nephew and my bff then off to see fireworks in Rockville, MD. Going to DC is just crazy and I do not have the energy to watch them at the National Mall. I'm okay with looking at the pictures instead!

You look so cute in your maxi dresses! PAG just did a post featuring a maxi from Target; you ladies are making me want to go shopping! LOL!

I got a grey striped dress with ruffles on the top (like your black and white dress) from Old Navy, but it's not a maxi. It's such a pretty detail. I wish they had had more!

I hope you and G have a wonderful fourth! Sean and I are just gonna take it easy this year. We're chillin' at home. (Traffic downtown gets insane on the 4th; it'd probably take us two hours to get home! Eek!)

I love these cute dresses.... There are no rules when it comes to fashion (I say!)... Fashion is WHATEVER.. Its all about STYLE> THere is a BIG difference between the two...
Wear what makes you feel beautiful and wonderful!
You look great girl'

I really love the maxi dresses. I think they are so adorable. I want one just like the second one.

Miss♥Nikka said...

They look great on you! I always wanted to wear maxis but i makes me shorter than i already am..i should try it anyways. :D

Miss*Kimmy said...

I really want to wear some more maxi dresses this summer. They are just so comfy.

PetiteAsianGirl said...

I just noticed that ALL the women in the first photo are wearing maxis ... lol! So adorable! I saw your post right after I did mine in a maxi too .. expecting the worse from my readers : P

I also say eff it to fashion long as you feel confident in something, who gives? I love the second black and white one on you. Btw, if your maxi has a raw hem (like my cheap one happend to) you could just take sharp scissors to it and cut neatly. I took off an inch or so off mine and it made a huge difference.

* err, fashion rules, not trends, lol!

Kate Gene - Thank you! I hadn't noticed her post until you mentioned it, my family has taken my laptop hostage! Oooo, a shorter version sounds ahhhmazing! 4th was awesome! Traffic in DC is no joke, actually, just the Metro is crazy, people don't drive b/c it's easier to walk then find parking! so it's take over an hour to leave DC, oi vey! XOXO
