Tied Up #7days7dresses


Here is my second New look 7 days 7 dresses outfit. Due to the fact that I am only 5ft 2, I have issues with the lengths of maxi dresses and due to my laziness, I never take the hem up. So I decided to tie a not in this maxi and keep it very casual, for a coffee break with my friend Lexi. My trainers are currently on shoe rotation and these Coca Cola ones are becoming a wardrobe staple. Who would have thought i'd switch the heels for flats! Certainly not me.

Such a cute look for a nice and relaxing day! I never thought about doing something like a knot at the bottom for really long maxis!

Amy Shaughnessy said...

I love this idea! I think that is a great way to get around hemming a dress. I just don't have the time to sew anymore so I might have to do this!


Giovanna said...

Tying a knot in the dress is not a bad idea at all, looks pretty cool and im sure loads of designers do exactly the same thing and sell it just like that!
