Finally An Off The Shoulder Maxi Dress
Can you believe it took me this long to own an off the shoulder maxi dress? Ok, maybe it is not a surprise to you, but to me it is LOL. Probably because I love love love wearing anything off the shoulder. So I thought it was only a matter of time that I would own an off the shoulder maxi dress. I guess I was wrong, oh well.
Remember in this post when I talked about rediscovering Forever 21? Well, my other purchase was this maxi dress. While I was planning out my outfits for my trip to Madrid, it looked so perfect for Spain. And right when we were walking around the streets of Madrid, on our last day, I was in awe how this red dress just complimented against the buildings of Madrid.
Of course, this dress had been in stock up until now, but there are very similar options available at Forever 21. The pink one is the closest to the one I’m wearing.
In terms of sizing, the dress fits true to size. I’m wearing a size small. And I’m actually impressed with the length. I’m 5’4″ and sometimes I struggle with maxi dresses being too long. This one was just right. I also loved that it stayed off the shoulder. I rarely had to pull it down. Maybe occasionally when I decided to have my arms up. But when I’m reaching my hands or arms out or moving around, no issues there. I think it is probably because the elastic had some give. It wasn’t too tight, but not too loose that it falls off. It just sat comfortably right past my shoulder.
If you’re still unsure if it will stay off the shoulder, this red maxi dress is another great alternative that looks very similar to mine. The arms are its own sleeves, but it has the illusion of being off the shoulder!
Where in Madrid
If you’re wondering where in Madrid this was taken, it on the way to the Royal Palace on some off beaten street. We just wanted to wonder around. In my opinion, walking on foot is the best way to see a new place.
Btw, I know I said I would have the rest of the travel guides to Barcelona, Lisbon, and Porto up by now. So sorry. These travel guides take a lot of time. I want to make sure they are thorough so that people can actually find them helpful and there are a lot of pictures to edit! But my goal is to have the Barcelona travel guide up within the next week or two!
