Maxi dresses scare me… there, I said it. I find they very often have spaghetti straps (the only kind of spaghetti I like comes with a red sauce), or they are loose and shapeless (making me look like I’ve eaten way too much spaghetti). But when I saw this silver number at Forever 21, I just couldn’t help myself. I ordered it, fully intending to be disappointed and return it… but to my surprise, it likes me… it really likes me.
For some reason it reminds me of the silver dress that Carrie Bradshaw wore in the Sex and the City episode The Monogamist, when she goes to the party with Big, then the party with Jennifer Aniston’s future fiancé, then waits for Big in the park… if you don’t know what I mean then catch up on your SATC episodes (especially the early ones from the 90s because the fashion is coming back). I paired the look with a silver belt (because I like a little more shape), and a violet clutch (I checked the episode, and Carrie wore a purple clutch), did my hair in wild Carrie curls, added some Carrie inspired makeup, grabbed a Cosmo… and Voila! Instant 90s SATC glam… perfect for Holiday parties or NYE….
