As a petite woman (I hate calling myself a woman, I usually say ‘girl’ instead), I have a love-hate relationship with maxi dresses. I love how they look, but hate how 90% of them fit me. Since I’m short (5′ 2″ on a good day), they are always far too long on me. And sometimes getting them hemmed costs more than the dress itself. No thanks.
So when I received this blue and white maxi dress from Sugar Love Boutique, I was anxious to see how it fit. I chose a size small based upon the model in the photo and crossed my fingers. To my surprise, it fit great! It grazes the floor if I’m wearing flat sandals, but a pair of wedges makes the dress the perfect length. The material is also really stretchy and thin, which is amazing for hot summer days.
The last thing I love about this dress is the funky pattern. Blue and white are colors I love to pair together, and the pattern adds some fun. Plus, when you’re petite you can pull off bold patterns since they add extra weight to your frame (which you can get away with when you’re small!) So I’m pretty much in love with this dress.
