The Tiny Heart: Look What I Got: Coral & Mint Maxi Dress

Look What I Got: Coral & Mint Maxi Dress



Maxi Dress-Three Bird Nest, Necklace-Eclectic Ornaments, Clutch-Target (similar), Sandals-AE

This maxi dress was originally $42 and I scored it when it went on sale for $28. (It's full price again but it just may be worth it! It has pockets, people!). Of course it was crazy long on me (like 10.5 inches too long) but I really wanted to wear it for our anniversary dinner. I hadn't had time to get it hemmed. So I resorted to using double sided tape to temporarily "hem" it. I don't recommend it, but I figured no one was looking at the bottom of my dress while I was sitting down, right?

  32. Gorgeous dress! I really love those colors together!

  33. I like the colors on the dress and the pockets are for sure a cool part of it. Next time you can just cut the dress and not worry about a hem. Usually the fabric from most maxi dresses such as jersey won't fray so the raw edge will still look cool.

  38. Love the coral/mint combo! And everything is definitely better with pockets! I have used double sided tape to make my skirts shorter before...although it was to make a pencil skirt into a mini! :-) It works!

  60. Mint and coral! Such a coastal combo. I seriously spent all weekend long trying to pair the two colors, because I own so many mint and coral pieces and I love the way they look together... But my pieces don't easily fit because they're not really solid. Just a bunch of crazy patterns. I'm still tryin'!

  61. Sharon!!! You look so pretty:)))! Love the mint teardrop necklace with the maxi dress! The colors look so pretty together!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love the mint-coral-mint combo. So pretty! And yeah, I feel you on the long hemlines - so annoying! At least it's usually a quick and fairly inexpensive fix :) Especially if you learn how to do it yourself (a skill I have yet to master).
