Back in my day, the word “maxi” meant maxi-pads. (Eww). These days, the fashionistas have transformed this once notorious word into a fan favorite: the maxi skirt. Sometimes it’s a maxi dress, but either way it’s long, it’s gorgeous, and it makes everyone feel tall, (even if only for a moment).
I’m wearing Nasty Gal’s Holy Wrap Maxi Skirt, which is currently on sale for less than $30. I ordered the XS and it fits perfectly high on my waist. This skirt is much longer on me than the 5’9″ model in platform heels, but I like that it slightly graces the ground even with my Forever21 Black Modernist Platform Booties.
I left a review on this skirt, and I pointed out that I noticed the outer wrap fabric sticks out and doesn’t lay flat because of the clips closure. The inner closure has snaps, and I wish that the outer closure also had snaps, versus the clips.
I liked the way Nasty Gal had styled the skirt with their Low Down Plunging Bodysuit, so I decided to wear my skirt with something similar that I already had in my closet. I’m wearing American Apparel Cotton Spandex Jersey Halter Leotard in Black. I wore this in my recent post, NIGHT OWL, and I mentioned that I got an XS, which pulls against my long torso causing a deep-v effect.
The bodysuit also has a super low back, so with this high-waisted maxi skirt, it looks like my back is completely bare. Talk about an extra sexy additive.
Thank you so much for following along, and CYBER MONDAY posts will be back shortly. I just haven’t been online shopping much since after Christmas. Feel free to leave a comment, ask questions, or offer feedback. I always make sure to respond.
