Obsessed with Maxi!

Image from Haute Look

Dress by Guess
Orignaly Price $178
Sale Price $79
Size XS

I have been on the look out for a cute Maxi dress for a while. I've seen it on other girls (much taller than me) and they always look so nice in it. Everytime I try one on, its way too long or too big and my bf hates them. He says what are you trying to hide behind that big Whatever right! I think I've been more obsessed about finding Maxi dress since he hates it.

I'm sure this dress is too long for me and I'm going to have this shorten, but that's okay. I got this from Haute Look and it's such a good deal that I couldn't pass up. Guess fits me pretty well normally and I trust that it will be the same on this dress. I love the plaid pattern and also how the material clings very close to the body.

The thing that sucks is that its going to take 14 days to arrive, its going to be a long wait. :(

Maxi -- hate them or love them? Let me know what you think.


  1. Love how slimming this dress looks. It doesn't look roomy at all and I think this one will actually make you look more petite than big. Hehe I just made my purchase too! I got the dress (that u said no) and not the shirt (that u said yes) LOL! And Alterna hair caviar.. their products are sooo good I actually am willing to spend $50 on their stuff! Haha and you know how cheap I am!

  2. that's a nice dress! haha I was thinking of buying something from Guess the other day on HauteLook too. I wish I was taller so I can pull off a nice maxi dress though!!

  3. Having a small and petite frame myself I have been having trouble finding a maxi that is slim fitting. I would like to have one though. Looking forward to your review.

    Hope you will enter my giveway to win a J Crew pearl bracelet at :)

  4. I have yet to try on a maxi dress so I'm not sure how I feel about them. I'm pretty sure I'm going to need to get it hemmed no matter what, so that's been kind of the deterring factor. Can't wait to see how this one looks on you!

  5. That maxi is pretty cute. I am looking forward to see it on you. Yes, 14 days is a longgg time to wait for what you want.

  6. that maxi looks like it fits really well! i found one on an asian site i like very much and it's supposed to be for people under 5'4" :)

  7. Hautelook shipping is sooo slow! I tried Gilt for the first time and it was a lot faster plus return shipping was free (store credit only though, boo). Can't wait to see how this maxi looks on you. Didn't you say you had a sewing machine? A hem should not be too hard : )

  8. I love this dress.

  9. Love Maxi dresses. My friend Michelle, who happens to tower @ a whopping 6'0 on bare feet, says she cannot wear maxi dresses b/c then she'll look like a tent. Unfortunately for her, I agree. I think it works better on very petite girls than it does on extremely tall girls. i.e. nicole richie, olsens, sarah michelle gellar, vanessa hudgens, etc.

    You just gotta find the one that's right for you. I try to find maxis where the length is one piece of fabric (like the one you posted), so it lengthens the body. Maxi dresses like this one (below) can cut the body horizontally & shortening a petite frame:
