ESSENTIALS #4: The Maxi Dress

Hola Dears!

Time for another great essential on our series and actually one of my faves! ♥ The MAXI DRESS :)
Is no secret that I am a dress lover, I just find dresses a very simple an easy option, and with the right accessories you can give them a different vibe every time, go from day to night, from ultra feminine to rocker, and here I am pleased to share with you my favorite options for this wardrobe staple.
A lot of people think of the Maxi as an obvious option to wear on a hot summer day, near the beach etc, and while its a totally perfect idea, the reality is we can get A LOT more from it....


DATE NIGHT: I got inspired thinking about an invitation for drinks, this is the kind of gal that orders whiskey instead of a cocktail, she is confident, smart, sexy and jut a bit tough in a very appealing way ;)


POWER LUNCH: This is a perfect example of the versatility of the Maxi, we throw a stylish blazer, an awesome handbag, nice but demure shoes, a great cuff as accessory and we are ready to meet with our business partner or a potential investor, assuming that you work on a creative field as I do I added a little personality on the IPad cover ;)


SATURDAY STROLL: Simple, easy, chic! This is what I was telling you before on why I love dresses, I mean you could be ready in 5 minutes and looking like a million bucks! Ready to take your pet for a walk and probably run some errands while you're at it....

Now the tricky part, choosing the right MAXI that can serve all this purposes:

1. Look for fabrics that don't have too loud of a print.
2. Avoid halters and rather go for one that provides some coverage on the shoulder.
3. Watch the length!!! If it's to long for your height, take it to the tailor and get it properly hemmed. There is nothing that will take the chicness out of your dress like walking around "moping" the streets of the city with your garment...

Well lovelies that is it for today, I hope that you like today's options and if you don't have this essential yet...go get yours, we are in perfect time with the spring starting :D

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Dear querida amigota tan chula y tan encantadora:
    Love reading you as always... And I love to see that in some recent posts you are also suggesting a nice drink to go with any particular look and attitude. Maybe we -your fans- ask to much of you, but I think a dazzling addition to all of your posts and recommendations about what to wear, aside from the drinks, would be kind of like a soundtrack of sorts... Like what tune may have been playing in your imagination when you design or gather elements for a certain look... In fact it may not always be a song, but also maybe a movie. I think what I love most about your posts and taste is the way you somehow link them to pop culture and to references most of us can relate to.

    Hope to see you smile in person again any time soon.

  2. Thank You for your visit as always:))) and may I say WOW! What an awesome suggestion!!! I love it ♥ I am very into music from all kinds as you know, and I think those ideas are b-r-i-l-l-i-a-n-t!!! Will do in my absolute next post!! :D Thank You and hope to see you soon as well, hopefully there can be a mic involved and some Morrissey song to sing along! :)
