a silky case spun

(Forever 21 striped maxi dress, Deena & Ozzy color block wedge, H&M looped scarf, pin from Iceland, Forever 21 bracelet)






While perusing my favorite blogs recently I came upon this shot (featured on Facehunter) and was completely inspired.  I've been hunting for a sophisticated maxi for several weeks and this image pushed me over the edge.  
I settled on Forever 21's version (for a mere $15) and layered it up.  I topped off the outfit with a lovely pin courtesy of my friend Vincent, who recently returned from a trip to Iceland. Thanks Mr. Grace!  There's something about the maxi that is very restricting, almost Geisha-esque. I feel enveloped in a cocoon of clothing.  I don't know if it's the stripes, but something about this look suggests earlier Comme des Garçons designs.

  2. Maxis don't work for me--being a meager five foot nothing. But you pulled it off nicely! Those shoes are absolutely to die for! Cool pin too!
