Vintage Inspiration: The Maxi
It's been a while since I've done a Vintage Inspiration post and coming back with 'the maxi' now seemed appropriate. You see, last Summer I couldn't sell a long dress or skirt to save my life. I had a gorgeous long lace dress sit in my shop for months! But this year it's a completely different story.
I've always had a thing for the 70's and if the print and color is right, I think a maxi looks more easy-going-bohemian than costume. In previous years it seemed like everyone thought 'costume party' when they saw a brightly colored long skirt but now, it's all anyone wants!
We have a few great ones in the shop (and some I've been hoarding for the opening of the new location). It's been a shift for me to think that long dresses are no longer 'off limits' when I'm out buying for the shop but I'm happy they're coming back in style.
A maxi is comfortable, breezy and you don't have to worry if you forgot to shave your legs. What more could you ask for?
