Spring/Summer 2011 Trend: Would you wear Maxi Dresses?

Happy Easter Ghetto Gurls! 

Longtime!! It's been a while (again) since the last time I wrote some posts.. been busy touring the Philippines! Hehehe! Kidding :) Anyways, one of the perks of my job is that I get to roam around the country and visit to different provinces I have never set foot before. I get to experience the culture, taste the food, and see the wonderful sights the place has to offer. Would you believe I haven't been to Boracay??!! Hahahahaha!! Yep! I haven't been there and it's my first time to go. Even if I only had 3 days and 2 nights, I super enjoyed the trip. But of course, I have to bring some "arsenal" outfits to make my beachfront my own fashion runway heehee!! 

I brought with me my very trusty maxidress! (Pardon the camwhoring with my big bag on my wrists since I can't leave it in the hotel and I have to have with my my work stuff and it just fits in this roomy tote which by the way needs another round of cleaninf once again hehe!) I have this dress since '08 and I wore it when I met up with a friend in San Diego and did some outlet shopping near the US-Mexico border. I even wrote a post about it a year ago with some tips how to wear it especially for petittes like me! :) Well, I think we have to uncover those maxi dressses once again since the 70's are so back!!

Nicole Richie spotted just this year wearing a maxi dress.

Happy Easter everyone! May we not forget the true meaning of's not just about bunnies and easter egg hunts. But rather, it's about thanking Christ for dying for our sins, forgiving us unconditionally by giving us a clean slate and a shot at eternal life in heaven:) Let's  all start living a new life that the Lord will be proud of us.

Would you wear: Maxi Dresses

Summer ain't over till the 2nd week of June (according to weather experts). So there's still time to wear all the summer dresses you have before rainy days come again.

Today, I'll be talking about a maxi dress. Well, what is a maxi dress anyway? A maxi dress comes from the word maxi.. which is maximum.. It's a casual dress with a length that extends to the ankle or the floor, giving that long-gown look. It is fitting at the top and goes flowy at the bottom. Maxi dresses are available in all sorts of prints, designs, color, and fabric. It's very versatile too as you can wear one to the mall, the beach, coffee dates with your girlfriends.

Most petite girls like me are anxious in wearing a maxi dress, thinking that we might "drown" in it! haha :) But with the right style tricks, who says petite girls can't wear one?

  • Choose maxi dresses which are form fitting to the upper part of the body to avoid looking like a preggy dwarfie :)

  • For extra height and for you to not trip over the dress' length you can wear wedges or platforms with it.

  • Wear your maxi dress with the right accessories such as statement earrings, bangles, fashionable sunglasses, or a statement bag and strut your way in style

Here are two of the most fashionable petities in Hollywood rocking their maxi dresses while out and about doing errands. You can see that their maxi dress cinches at the waistline and flows out down to the bottom.

Rachel Bilson

Eva Longoria - Parker

Since I'm a Rachel Bilson and Eva Longoria wannabe, this is me feeling like a celeb in my own right with my girl friends :)

Hope I was able to help all you petites out there! Before the rainy season kicks off again, try to don a maxi dress for a one last summer hurrah and let us know what you think :)

Enjoy the week ahead girlies!!
