dressed up like a lady: Fall Maxi

Nov 7, 2013

Fall Maxi

70's maxi dress: Vintage via Blackbird Vintage
High heeled 70's looking maryjanes: Miz Mooz
Sunglasses: Vintage via Giant Vintage
Waist cincher belt: Steve Madden

Finding the perfect long sleeved maxi dress is an ongoing mission, both for me and I assume, for any chick who lives where it gets cold. You'd think winter would be an ideal time to layer on some tights and a dress that goes to the floor, but it's surprisingly hard to find maxi dresses with long sleeves. Let alone ones with long balloon sleeves, like this sweet prairie looking thing I scored on Ebay. Your move, winter.






If you didn't already know, I LOVE the '70s. I love the music. I love the movies. I love the fashion. It is hands down my favorite decade for style. So, clearly I'm digging Cammila in this dress. I really wanted to capture how light, soft and flowy it is, and how that is contrasted with Cammila's body underneath; the perfect combination of dreamy poeticism and lithe musculature.   -MC

  5. I have often wondered why stores only carry maxis for the summer season; I don't want to cover my legs when it is warm!

    That maxi dress fits you awesomely!

  7. Now here I was, just having a conversation the other day with someone about how I think darker shades of purple deserve to be included in autumn's palette every bit as much as the pumpkins, golds, earthy greens, cocoa browns and their ilk, and then you sport this stellar maxi and prove that point visually in spades. I love the whole gorgeous colour scheme at work here, and all the more so because purple is involved. You look so very magnificent - and ready to give mother nature a run for her money on the style front!

    *PS* I flat out adore your term "double retro". Thank you for sharing that with me!

  9. I can't decide if I like the dress more or the shoes. You look beautiful in this. The colors on the dress remind me of autumn, purple and brown..everything is so ..natural. Great combination.
