Sway Chic Maxi Dress

November 4th, 2012

Thanks to Sway Chic for sending me their Striped Overlay Maxi Dress! I really didn’t expect the quality of the dress to be this GOOD (of course, pictures online don’t really say much as far as texture goes… at least not in our lifetime!), but this is really nice. I love the length and the way it feels on your skin. You can view their other maxi dresses on their site. The material is really smooth, though a bit clingy to the contour of your body. This maxi dress isn’t too constrictive on your legs, so you have ample room to walk:) It’s wonderful overall. I might just wear this to a wedding I’m about to go to and can’t wait to style it with something else. It can be worn casually with flip flops or in a dressy way, which is what I tried to do here. I paired it with these Diane Von Furstenberg Olympia wedges and vintage J. Renee suede bag.

If the neckline is too low for you, you can try to tie the straps together with a bow in the back like I did. I’ve been doing this a lot with some of my tops and dressses that I just hate to get rid of. Sometimes it can get too warm when you layer, so this is a good alternative. Of course, I was freezing while taking these photos though, but I really wanted to capture the dress as is with just a few accent accessories. If you would like to have me review your product(s) on  à la Modest, I’d love to work with you— drop me a line! In other news, I am now a writer for Extant Magazine on my very own column called “à la Modest.” A new article should be up this week, so stay tuned. Also, for those who haven’t entered the giveaway for $100 Shopbop gift card, it’s ending on the 10th!

    Oooh you look absolutely gorgeous!! I’m a big fan of stripes, but it’s not easy to look good in them! You managed it very well though! :D
    Vertical stripes are always a better choice on lenghts, they really make anyone look taller, isn’t it?

    Thank you, Vivian! Yeah, I forgot to mention that the stripes on this dress made me look 3x taller! I should’ve applied that tip to my wardrobe a LONG time ago!

    Thank you, hon!! I do need to shop for more maxies, because surprisingly I don’t have much. By not much, I think I only have 2-3.

    You look really good in that long dress! I like clothes with stripes pattern. I think I need to start looking for something similar :)
