It is hot in the T.Dot!!
Summer weather is here, which means I’m looking for easy, comfortable, yet fashionable outfits to take me out-and-about to enjoy all the summer fun this city has to offer!
Being petite – short – wearing maxi dresses isn’t an easy task. This is the main reason I don’t own too many of them. When I *do* find one that I like, there’s usually an additional cost to whatever the tags …hello: shortening alterations. 😦 ANOTHER factor to me NOT wanting to buy them.
Lucky for me Forever21+ had this one is a gorgeous summer orange that really looked amazing against my skin tone.
And the price was right at $22! BIG WIN!
This maxi dress is made from a stretch knit, light fabric. With adjustable cami straps making it perfect for ladies who are short-waisted like me.
There’s an elasticized waist, which I covered up with an old belt to add some more interest to this simple frock.
And a ruffled flounce bodice adds to the neckline showcasing the girls nicely, without being too titty-citty-in-your-face about it 🙂
Now, it’s still hella long for me… but I managed to make it work for my petite height by simply knotting the frock off to the side.
Which gave the entire outfit a summer-goddess-drappy look. Making this maxi work for minis … like me!!! 🙂

Love the dress. I didn’t like the belt or the side tying but can understand why. I stand only 5’1″ myself. I love sundresses but haven’t tried a maxi because I’m afraid of the length.Since I join you in the big bust area, I do enjoy Simply Be dresses that have a little extra space in the bust line for the “girls” to have more space. Have a great summer!
I’ve heard good things about SimplyBe. Wishing you a wonderful summer also!
