Posh Meets Rock: Maxi Overload

I think all our daily readers know now that we ahb-solutely love doing our own DIY photo shoots. Plus, it usually comes with a theme. We don't just took pictures, right? So, this shoot's theme is Posh Meets Rock! I don't know. It sounds cool! haha!

Nina's portraying the Posh Socialite Elite and I'm(Char) portraying a Rocker Street Chic.

On Nina: Zebra-print scarf, Hot Pink plain Maxi dress, Black platform wedges
On Char: Black leather jacket, Leopard-print Maxi dress, Black strappy heels

I love how the Maxi dresses make the look sophisti-cute! It can go classy to casual in a snap! You just have to put the right accessories in according to your desired outcome.

Some Tips in wearing Maxi dresses:
1. Never pair flats with this floor-length dresses!
2. Be sure to pick the right cut and prints for your own style.
3. Be creative on wearing accessories! Necklaces, scarfs, bags, or earnings will compliment your dress.
4. If you have a curvy figure, stick to flowy and a-line maxi dresses.
5. If you're more of a model-esque type, form fitting dresses are perfect for you!
6. Always choose the one that will make you feel comfortable and speaks out your personality.

Some of Nina's favorites from Goddiva:

"The black haltered floral dress is one of my favorites because it is elegant, very feminine and since it is “haltered”, it is much more comfortable to wear than the tube maxi dresses. The second one is the peach playful patterned dress, I could wear it in casual days and it compliments my skin color.  " -Nina

Some of my favorite pieces from Goddiva:

"I love this blue evening maxi dress because it looks very glamorous and you can use it on formal parties and events. The front split and asymmetrical detail makes it look so lovely yet sexy! The color-block dress is uber sexy and is perfect for the beach or day parties! The black dress, however, is a major head-turner because of it's stunning minimalism quality. " -Char

Who says maxis are old fashioned?

I love pairing maxi dresses with heels, especially if it really goes with the dress! :)
but, I tried wearing flats (not ballet flats) with a maxi dress, and it went pretty well. I didn't trip or anything, and I'm short too... I think it really just depends on the style of the dress. :)

I love the leopard dress though, it looks so fierce together with the leather jacket! :D

and great advice! I guess there will be a major dress and sandals shopping happening soon!

Char said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply]

@phyllz If it goes well then that's great! :) It depends on how you carry the whole ensemble as well.. I bet you rocked it! :) Hope we could see how you styled your maxi.
