You may have noticed that I was almost nonexistent when it came to posting on Instagram. However, I did share several photos and videos on my Instagram Stories. From Thursday-Saturday, I attended The Blog Society Conference that was fortunately held here in Chicago. I wanted to be more present so the best way for me to share what I’ve been up to was using Instagram Story. Do you guys utilize that feature? There was so much I learned about blogging and so many amazing people I met at #TBSCON. I’ll definitely share a recap with you guys in a week or two.
The Struggle with Maxi Dresses
I’m 5’4″ but for some reason finding a maxi dress can be a struggle. Either the dress is too long or too short. I recently learned that 5’4″ is borderline petite. For the most part, I trust that my dress will shrink a little, but that is not always the case. So if the maxi dress is affordable (like this black floral one I wore not too long ago), I don’t mind getting it hemmed. However, I finally found a style of maxi dress that will work for us 5’4″ ladies.
The Best Maxi Dress for Semi-Petite Women
The best kind of maxi dress for semi-petite women is getting a maxi dress that is asymmetrical or has the high-low style. I came across this high-low maxi dress and the length is perfect! The shorter front gives me that elongated appearance and the longer length in the back gives it a maxi dress feel to it. I am wearing an XS and it fits comfortably. This dress has a little stretch to it (I love dresses with stretch to it. It’s like the comfort of an elastic waist pants haha!).
