After swooning over all of the stars’ special occasion gowns, last night during the Oscar’s, I decided it was finally time to break out my first midi dress. In the past I would avoid this length skirt at all costs, but with full skirts of all lengths making a comeback, I decided to give it a try.
If you are on the petite side, midi skirts can be a little bit tricky. We are already
blessed with short legs, so we tend to compensate by wearing garments that give off an elongated appearance (jumpsuits, high-waisted pants, “sky high” high heels, etc.). That is why it is very important to make sure your midi skirt hits at mid-calf…even if it means a trip to the tailor! Before styling the dress below, I had it shortened about 3.5 inches. Once you’ve arrived at the appropriate length, try pairing your midi with nude shoes – they do a great job lengthening your legs.
I highly recommend a fitted top when styling a full midi skirt. That is why I was drawn to the “Lead a Charmed Life Midi Dress.” Featuring a fitted bodice, spaghetti straps, and open back design, feel flirty and sassy while wearing this little number! To breakup all of the pink, I threw on a chunky pearl necklace, and polished off the look with my rose gold watch, an embellished leather bracelet, and my point-toe nude pumps. I definitely needed to use that leg lengthening trick mentioned above. Quantities are limited in this dress, so hop to it and shop this look below.
With all of the pink going on in the ensemble above, I couldn’t help but paint my eyelids with hues from Urban Decay’s Naked 3 pallet! From light pink (Dust), to pink shimmer (trick), to metallic brown (factory) this eyeshadow kit is comprised of 12 “rose-hued neutrals.” If you’re girly at heart and a fan of anything pink and sparkly, you cannot go wrong with this item.
