Mixed Media Maxi Dress

It has taken awhile for me to warm up to the mixed media maxi dresses. I think the first one I actually liked was on another blogger (won’t say who because I spent an hour searching for the post and couldn’t find it and now I am second guessing who it was). When I first saw them making their way into the catalogs they had kind of a lingerie feel to me but I have since out grown it — well most of them — some still have a lingerie feel. While I was milling about the Internet I found similar inpretations of the this style at Nordstrom, Ashley Stewart, ASOS, Forever 21, City Chic Online and Fashion to Figure. I want to put a belt on all these dresses except for the one from ASOS Curve.

This look seems like it could be an easy do-it-yourself project if you are handy with a sewing machine. You could just make a simple sheer skirt with elastic band and slip it on over any short dress (or skirt) you have in your closet and add a belt.

New Addition

SwakDesigns just added the Paris Maxi Dress to their line.

Do you have one of these in your closet? How do you work it?
