Skirt to the Maxi-mum: EBEW



 {belt & dress worn as maxi skirt:  ny&c  I  heels & shades:  target  I  jean jacket made into vest:  gap I  
altered white t:  the duane reade  I  assorted jewels}

here it is.  the latest installment of everybody, everywhere.  you're CRAZY if you don't love the maxi skirt.  or maxi anything, really.   maxi skirt,  maxi dress,  maxi - barbies little sister,  maxi...M magazine?  actually, crazy is me as i don't actually own an official maxi skirt.   i lusted after THIS for forever and ever and ever and when i finally found the cheaper version it was sold out.  cest la vie. 

thankfully, i'm an expert at the shimmy down and did just that to this semi-maxi dress from last summer. throw on a wide belt over top to hide the arm holes and vvvvoila.  (lots a french happening today)  i went for a sort of 90's vibe with the jean vest.  said vest is currently in the tub bleaching out.  keep your fingers crossed for that project.
can't wait to see how everyone else is workin the maxi.  xoxo.

SHUT UP, how creative are you to make a not-so-maxi length dress into a maxi skirt! You win the award for best idea and most resourceful EBEW blogger today. I want to shove this post in the faces of all who said they weren't participating because they don't have a maxi dress/skirt in their closet. Aaaand you look like a total badass in the jean vest. You kill it EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

Nice job on the dress conversion. I love how you have styled it with the denim waistcoat.

Checking out some of my faves from the EBEW post. I love this combo. You have totally inspired me to re-create with my black maxi skirt. Love it. The brown sandals under all black is genius.

I would never have known that wasn't a 'true' maxi. Love what you've done with it and I'm digging the 90's vibe :) (those shoes rock too!)
