Newsroom Fashion: Maxi Dress

by - June 09, 2017

When Dia&Co. approached me about doing a fashion post based on facing your fashion fears, I almost said no. I didn't want to go out and buy a risky new item I might hate just for the sake of a blog post, and at first I couldn't think of anything I already owned, alone or in combination with some other piece, that would fit, especially in a work setting. Then I remembered this dress.

Maxis aren't something I usually go for; they're typically too long and too baggy in the top. But this one is beautiful and with heels was actually manageable. But then something terrible happened. The first time I tried to wear it out, it snagged on something and got a huge tear. So the night before I wanted to wear it to work, I spent 20 minutes with a needle and thread trying my best to mend it. I don't think I did too badly.

For work I paired it with my tried-and-true lace jacket and new black sandals. But this dress could easily be worn to a wedding or for a date night or even just a day of shopping.
