Fashion Over Reason: Maxi me

Maxi me

Damn it was hot last week. This is what happens when the weather melts off any trace of makeup (seriously, there isn't an ounce on my face- my apologies). I had been toying with the idea of the maxi dress for a while now and this khaki number found at topshop a few months ago was my first step toward the longer style. Although it isn't floor-grazing (in due time, people, in due time...), the green color won me over for two simple reasons: it's the color of my eyes -although that's hard to tell with my cyclops red eye corrector - and it brought me back to 1996.






Dress - Topshop
Tank (worn under dress) - Rogan for Target
Shoes - Zara

Loving your wedges and the color of that dress! Too cute! And I like how it's a little shorter than a typical maxi, it shows off the shoes!! :)

So, I was at the Zara in Fairview the other day and I found those shoes..the ones you're wearing here! I got SO excited but they only had them in a size 6.. AH! I was so sad...

I love the dress though. It's so 90's in the best way! And it suits you so well. ps. you don't need to wear makeup.. I hope you know that. You're kind of extremely gorgeous no matter what Helen :)

Oh God, I've been so maxi-obsessed lately. I love yours, and I love how you paired it with the wedges, it's kind of unexpected. I just got a new one and am gonna go take some style shots later today, so excited!

You look so lovely as always Hélène!

Love Alexandra
