I spend my cash on looking flash:)))))

You have no idea how much I looked for a maxi dress that’s actually maxi - for me that is! Everything out there is not long enough for me - even the tall section isn’t tall enough.

And then, when all hope was gone, my sister took pity on me, dusted the sewing machine and made this tube Grecian dress for me (I helped a little, mainly by screaming Omg, Omg, Omg all the time and generally being impressed). I’m super happy and I already implored her to make me one in every single color I love: red, blue, pink, green, maybe some floral pattern if I can find a nice fabric. If she hasn’t the time I’m gonna make them myself as I’m all about maxi this summer.

I dressed like this at one of my friends' birthday party – I was overdressed but then again, that’s how I role. As I wasn’t able to decide what brooch to wear I put a bunch of them on this black blazer and I went from there with the whole gold craze, adding a skinny belt and a pair of long earrings I made myself.

And then we have the triple finger ring (a skull sword with a snake wrapped around it) – Oh, man, I love it so much, I bought it from the boy’s section, I always find great things there, you should try it.

You and me are so much alike :)). I can't stick with only one trend...I like to try eeeverything.

You look sososo good in maxi. And this is what I consider to be "maxi". Floor length, not ankle length :)). Thank God we have talented family members ( my aunt, your sis ;)) ).

Hugs,
S.

super! si rochia si mai ales brosele :X

Daca pana si eu(care vorba aia...am nanism pe langa tine:-<), am probleme in a-mi gasi o rochie suficient de maxi incat sa-mi acopere si incaltamintea...imi dau seama prin ce chin ai trecut:)) Oricum, mai bine de atat cred ca nici nu se putea:D E foarte tare rochia, imi place mult cum cade genul ala de material iar faptul ca e handmade o face si mai speciala. Plus ca sunt delicioase nuantele alea de auriu ale bijuteriilor in contrast cu albastrul rochiei:X
Don't worry about overdressing, I'm doing that 80% of the time(ok, 90:D) :))

Cecille - thanks!:)

Andreea - si eu care de fiecare data ma gandeam: "ce lume cruda, toate fetele sub 1.75 isi gasesc rochii maxi dupa pofta inimii si numai mie imi vin 2 palme peste genuchi!!!!:), pai in cazul asta nu stiu pentru ce inaltime sunt facute rochiile lungi - fetite de 12 ani poate! Overdressing is my middle name! Multumesc, kisses:)

Veronica Biliboc said...

Waw cate de tare este rochia ta. Eu tocmai ce mi-am cumpart material sa imi afc o fusta luuuuunga. Abea astept sa incep lucrul la ea, asa ca, da primvara asta o sa port maxi :D

Alice said...

Like pentru multitudinea de insigne!! :)

Laura Tenshi said...

Wow, Sara did an amazing job with the dress, no wonder you want one in every color now. I love how pins look on blazers, very stylish. There's no such thing as too many pins, right?
I bet you were the star at that party, you look FAB.

Faboulista said...

haha i knew i will love this post from its title. lets pile on the bling and rule the world! Sara did a fantastic job sewing u that dress. i obviously have the opposite problem where every maxi skirt has to be hemmed otherwise it looks like i am carrying a train. and love all the brooches on it. actually every time i will see a cameo style brooch on a blazer i will remember how i am grand royalty. and u made that happen! and the stupid girl of course!

Americanca said...

Wow, that is one beautiful dress. Your sister rullzzz! I'm planning on buying a sewing machine and taking some classes, but I am really not skilled when it comes to such things :(

If you start creating more such dresses, I want one too :) Just like Mina, I have the same problem. They are all way too long for me, so I don't have any maxi dresses / skirts anymore. The last time I wore one was years ago when I had someone sewing my clothes.

And hey, I know how you feel. I'm overdressed most of the time, but I love it. I do get tired every now and then of people asking me why I dress up all the time. Gees, they just wanna wear t-shirts and jeans all the time.

Alice in vintageland said...

Veronica - eu deja mi-am mai facut una roz pal si una albastru neon.

Laura - more the odd one but I'll take fab anytime, true- there's no such thing as too many pins!

Mina- train is good, as a princess granddaughter you're supposed to wear them all the time:)))))))) . Wearing gold makes me feel like taking over the world!!!!:)

Americanca- I'm not that skilled with the sewing machine either and nor is my sister - but she can do simple stuff, I guess practice makes perfect, I'm more of a hand sewing expert - now that I can do. Overdressing is fun, I personally don't understand the t-shirt and jeans uniform (all the time) but, yeah, I remember how it was in the USA, flip flops ruled there. :)))))

Da, Sandra, mi-am dat seama!:))))

Outfitstalker said...

Prexus Deligente said...
