Maxis for Minis (like Me)


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!!! 🙂

Do you like it?  Tell me what you think of the way I styled and made this maxi work in the comment section below.

FYI…

Hi friends, just a quick note to say I’m sticking to my New Year promises to myself and am taking my first vacation of the year. I’ll be exploring three countries in South East Asia with just the clothes on my back!!!

Looking forward to the warm weather, exotic foods and hopefully I’ll find some great plus-size clothing to bring back.  🙂

I won’t be doing regular blogposts while I’m away, but will be INSTAGRAMING on the regular.  Follow me and my Asian Adventures.  xo

February: Detox Water

Here we are…the end of month 2 of the New Year.  Crazy, huh?

My personal goal for 2015 is a simple one:  Getting and Staying Happy.  In order to achieve this lofty goal I applied a START-STOP-CONTINUE approach.  Cooking is good for the mind, heart and soul.  Especially when shared with others.  And so I’ve decided to START cooking more – using recipes I’ve never tried before and sharing my culinary mis/adventures on the blog once a month.

I’ve even created a sub-menu on my homepage under REVIEWS on the homepage for you – my readers –  to find them easily…and hopefully try a few yourself. 🙂

Buuuuut with my upcoming Asian Adventure looming (I fly on Friday – akk!), I haven’t had much time nor desire to try a new recipe.  Plus, the snowy-wintery-weather hasn’t got me out socializing as much as I used to. Needless to say, I haven’t been very motivated in the kitchen this month.thing

In an effort to stick with my monthly commitment to PPMeow, I was determined to share something.

February’s recipe:  Detox Water

Detox waters have become very popular and there are many different recipes that you can make.

These waters contain ingredients like lemon which helps to flush harmful toxins from your body, mint which aids in digestion, cucumber which contains anti-inflammatory properties.

Just 6 to 8 glasses every day will help to keep you hydrated and keep your vital organs in their best possible health.

Whether you’re trying to lose weight, aiming for clearer skin, or simply want to feel healthier, one of the best ways to rid your body of harmful toxins is to drink water.

Kicking up the flavour of your water by adding these tasty, natural ingredients just helps give you that extra boost. 🙂
