The Long Story

I'm a rather short girl, and I think I've complained about that a few times. Ok, perhaps I'm of a rather average height, but when I surround myself with images from the fashion world I feel tiny. Lately, though, I've been wearing high heels pretty much all the time, and I think this has made me consider myself a bit taller than I really am. One result of this is that I want to wear clothes that often look better on tall people, like maxi skirts/dresses.

I've been rightclick+save-ing anything ankle-length I've come across lately, and the other day I found a blog that really fuelled this maxi obsession. The blog, My Daily Style, is mostly written in Spanish, but you don't need to know the language to appreciate the style. I've also been browsing online stores and streetstyle blogs, and this post is an outlet for some of the images I've gathered. Now I just have to find the perfect dress/skirt to purchase...

Zara lookbook S/S 2010


  1. I love this trend and I think I can afford to wear long skirts (I'm 172 cm. tall) but I don't know why I look like a strange goth with them!

  2. I really want to find a great long skirt like this! They're on my list of things to look for too!! They look really chic with super-high platforms!


  3. i love that long skirt! i don't think i can pull it off very well though. i'm barely 5'5!

  4. i was just looking at one on freepeople.com that doubles up as a dress... check it out... then if you don't like the way it looks you always have the other option.... i may get the black :)


  5. oh, i know exactly what you're talking about, since i'm also very tiny. i especially love the stockholm streetstyle girl/pic and i think even a girl of our small frame could pull this off!

    by the way: have given up wearing heels (only wear them occasionally), because i think that many outfits simply look better/more laid-back with flats.

  6. amazing maxi dresses and skirts

  7. wow!!

    i like all the outfits!!

    the second outfit and the zara's ones are the ones who I like the most

    if you want visit my blog

    thank you


  8. that stockholm streetstyle girl totally looks like Lina! She has the most awesome style ever

  9. The Stockholm Streetstyle girl is serious business. I love the effect of that pendant.

  10. It's really interesting to see that the maxi-skirt is making a come back! And I love it when it is paired with a blazer.
