No hype, but this beautiful floral Zara dress is the most favorite dress I have worn in my entire life. This is my first knee-length midi dress, the style I've usually steered away from because I had thought anything past my knee would make me look stumpy. Instead, I've never felt more confident, energetic, and happy with what I was wearing, especially when experimenting with something so strange and new. This Versace-inspired print immediately caught my eye at Zara, so I ran to snatch what would be the last XS. The cut is done amazingly well, falling just at my knee (for reference, I'm 5'4"). Speaking as a short girl who loves to look tall, this dress will do it for you.
If you're liking the midi dress trend, but afraid to try it out because you're short or petite, I have a couple suggestions. Always look for a figure-hugging fit. Like skinny jeans, it will elongate your body, especially if you wear heels (higher the better!). Try the dress on - if the hem hits right at your knee or above, it's perfect. Any lower towards the middle of your calf, the dress may give a shortening effect and make your calves look wider (no thanks!).
I wore this to Lucky FABB on Sunday for a fabulous brunch hosted by Rewardstyle and Lucky, then a fun girl's day out shopping safari hosted by Have to Have on Abbot Kinney, and lastly a cocktail party at every home decorator's heaven, the Kelly Wearstler boutique. I met so many amazing bloggers and brands and just had a blast. More pics and recaps to come soon! Thank you everyone for supporting me and encouraging me to be where I am today. If it weren't for you then I wouldn't have remotely made it to Lucky FABB so I have to thank my readers for this one! I have a couple special treats coming up for you guys and gals so don't you worry, I'll be taking care of you ;)
