Stilettos and Diapers: The Maxi. Not the pad.

6.05.2009

The Maxi. Not the pad.

I love this summers new dress style, the maxi. Like really love it. I am only 5'2'', so not the ideal height to wear them, but I do anyway. The only issue is that I don't understand why they have to be named after a pad. I feel the same embarrassment when I say the word as I do in the lady aisle of Target. I will still share a few favorites that I have found.

Forever 21 $14.50

Fab Braid Strap Maxi Dress

Macy's $89.00

DKNY Jeans Floral Print Jersey Maxi Dress

Express $88.00

Ruffle Tube Maxi Trim

Macy's $159.50
Michael Kors Sweetheart-Neckline Strapless Textured Dress

Forever 21 $27.80

Stud Trim Maxi Dress

So now that I have typed that more times than I am comfortable with, I am going to find out where it came from. Who came up with it? Maybe it is so you can be nice and comfy while wearing a maxi. (The dress and the pad) Eww. That was too far. Seriously, sorry. Well, not enough to hold backspace for an entire sentence.

  4. Those dresses are great. I don't know if I could pull it off. I did buy a really long skirt from Target the other day and it is so comfy!

  9. I love them too(&I'm also 5'2")! Whatever! My boyfriend doesn't get it though. The first time I wore one around him he's all, "WHAT are you wearing? Is that long? Are we going somewhere nice?" haha, boys...

  10. Had no idea that they were called that.. LOL When someone ask "who are you wearing" I can snicker and say " why it's a Maxi" LOL

    I really like the last one very fun..I am 5'1" so these are hit or miss on me

    Take Care

  14. I think it is funny that you think you are too short for them - as I myself think I am too tall for them (yes, all 5 foot 6 inches). Ha, ha!!
