Maxi Dresses for Teapots...

Whats a maxi dress? One of those long,  typically jersey fabric, spaghetti strapped summer dresses.
What's a teapot, other than the obvious? I am. Well...no, not really. But remember the nursery rhyme? "I'm a little teapot, short and stout?" Yes. I am short. (barely five three!) Not truly stout, but I have incredibly stubby, not so long and model like legs.True fact: I'd be be like 4 feet tall if I didn't have a long torso. (This is fine, unless I want to wear something long. Then it's a problem.)

Anyway. Maxi dresses. I thought they were cute, but I had been avoiding them for the last couple years, due to the fact I am not 6 feet tall, even with my tallest heels on, and I figured I would just look horrendous in one. But today after school, in celebration of finishing my math final and being done with mathematics for the summer, I stopped at a store I like that was having a 50% off sale. And I came out with this dress for $4.

Apparently I don't look that short in it. I was skeptical of the horizontal stripes (notorious for making you look broader than you are, no matter what size).With heels, a belt, and my hair up I actually look ...like...TALL. Or ...Close enough.


It's a miracle, I tell you what.

WOW! (this comes from another fellow short person) I would NEVER have though that you were 5'3 in that dress had you not said it! It truly is a miracle.

I know just what you mean. I'm 5' 8", so in no way am I a short person, but I always avoided maxi/midi length dresses and skirts because I thought that they just could not be as flattering as knee-length skirts. Then I wore one a couple months ago - just to get out of my comfort zone - and I felt so stinkin' tall in it!

Thanks for the comment on my blog! I'm so glad you like it! And driving with the windows open and Hidden Awayblaring sounds like loads of fun! <3
