Hello my beloved Oopspiniors! Bernice here, and I have a huuuuuuge piece of news to share. Something that is sooooo awesome and magnificent!
But things are not finalized yet.. Thus, I shall leave you guys hanging for awhile.
First of all, I need to apologise for the deserting Oopspinion for the past few months, but here I am, trying my very best to revive Oopspinion!
Alright, (Main point please) Today I am going to share my oopspinion on MAXI DRESSES.
Well, you may go “Maxi dresses are so 2 years ago.” But believe it or not, it is NEVER GONNA DIE. Trust me! I have to confess, I just splurged on 3 maxi dresses, but guess what, it’s under 60 bucks! OHMYGOD I know. So till now, I have a collection of 6 maxi dresses, ranging from casual sundresses to formal and sexy ones. And not that i’m narcissistic (like what Bizhi called me today mispronouncing the word as nassitic), I feel that I look super tall in Maxi. I know i’m not exactly what a person may define tall as, (I’m 161.5cm btw, insisting of rounding it up to 162) but with the help of a maxi, even in flip flops, I feel like a 170. Serious!
Many people have the misconception that if you are short, you can’t pull off a maxi dress, oh please. You are so darn wrong. Let me give you an example.
She looks TALL right?
Yes, I bought this dress, and the measurement is only like 130cm, and it fits me perfectly, even when I’m wearing flip flops. But seriously, doesn’t the model look so tall in it? But in fact, the model is like shorter then me as she’s wearing heels! Sadly I don’t have the picture of me wearing that maxi, darn it! But i will upload it on Facebook once i took it okay?
So the moral of the story is, invest in Maxi dresses! It makes you look tall and chio, and it’s never out of fashion! And one pointer, for a starter, I committed in a huge mistake which is to buy all the printed maxis, but seriously, if you have a tight budget, stick to a solid colour one. Preferably have one in black and one in white, it is a MUST HAVE! If you have more money, you can then splurge on those prints. Out of the 6 maxis I have, one is full black, one full white, one full royal blue, one batik printed orange-pink, one spiral-ish black and white, and one multi-coloured batik-ish print. When i have the time, i will take all of them and post it alright?
My most expensive maxi is around 60ish and my cheapest is 15 😀 I’m so proud of myself as it is extremely hard to find cheap maxis. Most of them are around 70 to 100ish! I have a few recommendations for you 🙂
1) Bugis Street:
I bought one of the multi-coloured halter neck maxi from one of the shop in the newly renovated airconditioned first story place, (opp the kopitiam in bugis st) and it cost me around 30ish, thus, you should try out there! Pick a few maxis and try it. But let me warn you, every piece will look sooooo good on you that you would want to buy all!
2) Gmarket: It’s the online shopping portal that i frequent daily! I know im so hooked on it. I got my 15 bucks full black maxi from there! One pointer is that the colour and quality may be different from the picture, thus, we must take the risk! And it may not fit perfectly, but for me, i’m quite contented with mine. One tip while shopping there is to read the reviews, (read them thoroughly) if most of them have negative remarks, DON’T BUY. I tried before, being stubborn and the things really suck.
3) China Town: I got my formal looking spiral-ish black and white maxi from there, it is rather expensive as it cost me around 60ish. But there are cheaper ones around 40ish! Must go there and sieve those cheap and chio ones out!
So I shall conclude todays post by urging all you girls to get a solid colour maxi NOW! You won’t regret it. I will post on how to match your maxi dress next week, so stay tuned! 🙂
