The maxi dress is a major, major obsession of mine in the summer. It is one of the most versatile pieces in a wardrobe. Work, errands, day with the girls, even the pool. A maxi dress works for just about every occasion you could think of. And it is a great piece for every and any body type. Not to mention how easy it is to throw on and style. Last year I went on a binge maxi dress shopping spree and will most likely do the same again this year. It is my go to spring/summer look and I’m not ashamed to say it.
Below I took the dress I’m lusting over most for Dorothy Perkins(sadly they don’t have my size:-( ) and styled it three ways I would wear it for three kind of situations.

How do you wear a maxi dress? Have you done the dress to skirt look?
So last week I posted 3 Plus Size Style options based off a request. I had so much fun doing that I decided to do a Petite Style version for my shorty friends(I say that with love since my mom is under 5 feet as are two of my best friends). 🙂
So when looking at petite clothing options I found a few stores that seem to carry their items in a petite option. Old Navy, The Loft, The Gap and Target, to name a few, all had a great selection of items. I tried to pull together a mix of what I found to give petite people a few ideas. I know that proportion is key and so is fit not matter what size so also don’t be afraid to go to a tailor to get something done just right.
Okay, enough babble, on to the clothes:

Petite #2 by andiabcs featuring coffee shops
Petite #3 by andiabcs featuring leather handbags
And there you have it. A few style options for you tiny peeps. Now tell me, what do you normally do when shopping? What are your go to stores/items?
