~LookS: When it becomes sunny enough for the first Maxi.....

I absolutely adore the Maxi dress to bits and look forward to wearing them every summer! I love the forgiving long length of the Maxi, the feeling of the long fabric rustling in the wind on a sunny day or brushing across the grass, and the sheer elegance that binds me to take every step in a slower motion and with greater appreciation of the world around me. So I thought I would put together a post dedicated to the beloved here is the first Maxi dress I have worn this season; when it became warm and sunny enough to feel Summery in London!

Maxi Dress and belt: Forever 21 (A birthday pressie from my sisters!)
Black Jacket: Dorothy Perkins (but from several seasons ago)
Shoes: Hush Puppies red wedged sandals
Handbag: Primark (a few seasons ago)

Let's hope that the rainy spells in London will soon that more Maxi dresses can be brought out in the sun!! Happy summer everyone!!

Until the next time,
May xx

  8. Thank you for all the lovely comments and kind compliments Ladies! It's really sweet of you all and each comment has made me smile! :)
    I'm really not that tall, so I try to make the Maxi dress work with wedges to add some height, and sometimes it is still sweeping the floor! But I just love the Maxi so I can't resist wearing it when the weather permits. My sister prefers the Hankerchief Maxi with an uneven hem as it is usually a little shorter in length.
    Have a great weekend!

Qipao Love: Part 5 ~ How-To choose and wear a Qipao (Cheongsam) that will love your frame!

A little warning is probably in order my this will be a rather comprehensive How-To Qipao post! I will try to incorporate my own knowledge as well as what I researched through time, to create a rough but helpful guide for ladies who might want to attempt wearing the Qipao! Why do I say attempt? In today's fast paced life the Qipao has become a rather occasional dress even for a faithful admirer like me and I can understand why it might not be the most popular attire in the world, but I also know that many ladies who admire the Qipao might resist the idea of wearing it because of different barriers. Being a lover of the Qipao me I know the fearful qualms and muffin top resistance to wearing a Qipao all too well.....whether it is a matter of figure, budget, impression, style, occasion, look or finding the excuse to wear a Qipao, I hope to be able to offer some help towards a solution and ask that you forgive me if I am too long winded. The Qipao really i…

Qipao Love: Part 1~ From Qi Pao to evolution of a dress about women!

Welcome my lovely darlings to the new address as the blogspot to custom domain transition is now officially completed! Worry not, if you are still using the address it should automatically divert to the blog and there is also a new e-mail address if you should like to drop me a line to say hello or ask any questions;! What better way to celebrate this transition than to start on one of my favourite topics.....with Part One of my "Qipao Love (All about Qipao)" series of posts!

Throughout my blog over the two years, I have mentioned the Chinese Qipao dress (also known as Cheongsam in Cantonese) quite a few times, especially during the run-up to Chinese New Year. Having a self confessed love of the Qipao, as some of you darlings who have been following may know, I can usually be spotted wearing the Qipao throughout the 15 days of Chinese New Year festivities and have been adding one or two new Qipao dresses t…

How-To: Build a 1920s inspired Great Gatsby look!

With my birthday coming up in a little more than two weeks, and having decided on a vintage themed party, it is time to put my vintage thinking headband on! Last year I had fun dressing up as a 1940s inspired Pin Up girl, and this year I have decided to go a little further back in time.....yes my darlings....we will be roaring in a 1920s glitzy Great Gatsby affair!

The 1920s has been a favourite decade of mine for quite some time.....admittedly the decadence of the glittering heavily beaded long gowns, the extravagantly flirty ostrich feathers and the shiny Art Deco gem-stoned pieces might have something to do with it! It was true that the roaring 20s was a rebirth period for many because of the survival of WW1, so living every new day as free, happy and extravagant as possible became the ideal dream. With more women embracing liberation by replacing restrictive corsets with loose flowing dresses that revealed more flesh than ever before, a period embracing individuality, creativity, …
