This is totally a 90’s style. If i would have known, i would have saved my aunts collection of wraparound dresses. But let me just tell you a little story about my childhood, since i’m talking about the 90’s. My mom and aunts are my greatest influence in fashion. At six years old, i remember i enjoyed shopping with them. I enjoyed listening to their fashion and beauty talks. I enjoyed when they put make up on me.When most kids at that age get bored doing that, i wasn’t.
When i was little, i remember i could go hours and hours drawing and cutting clothes for my paper dolls. I made my own paper dolls and made their clothes out of white bond paper. I designed,color and paint it with the way i want it. Each dolls have names and their own closets, that i made myself too out of a cardboard box. I even make some for my friends and they paid me afterwards. Business was booming for that seven years old girl, i dreamed at that time that i would like to work in a clothing and retail industry. But as you get older, you get that sense of reality. Your goals have changed and you chose to pursue a career that is highly profitable for your future. So, that’s just a little fact about me that i like to share.
Now let’s get back to wrap around dresses. There is nothing more feminine, sophisticated and classy in a floral wrap around maxi dress. That’s just me, in my own fashion perspective because personally myself i like ruffles, chiffon and bows. They might be too dramatic for some of you, but i like it and i love to wear them. This maxi dress from Francesca’s is just perfect for my 4″11 frame. Most of the time i don’t have luck with maxi dresses because most of them are too long. So if i see one, i’d get them because who knows when i can find another one i like that fits me. It’s a bonus, if i see one with a slight high and low design just like this dress. I adore the ruffle trimmings !
