(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.
