Get Me That Maxi!

Purple Forever 21 Maxi Dress 1

Dress and Cardigan*Forever 21 // Bag*Lulu’s // Flats*Steve Madden

So first of all, you can tell that these pictures are old because there’s the old Christmas wreath again and I don’t have my bangs yet!  But I had to share this outfit because I seriously love this purple maxi dress from Forever 21.  I only paid $15.50 for it, which I think is a steal considering how often I wear this dress!  I love it because the color is great and it’s easy to just throw it on and head out the door.  The chiffon-like material means it can be a bit dressier than a regular jersey fabric, I think, and I even got complimented by my boss when I wore it to work the other day!  I don’t normally like to or want to by the same clothing item in different colors, but now I’m kicking myself for not getting this dress in another color because it’s just that great! I love to wear this dress on a beautiful sunny day, as I enjoy the feeling of it blowing around my legs :)

Tell me: What are some pieces in your closet that you just love love love?

  • haha, and i thought my outfit photos were behind!!
    Love the dress though, the color is gorgeous!

    • Haha, I know- four months is a little ridiculous! Thanks Lydia :)

  • Marlene

    That is one great dress; no wonder you love it so much.

  • nice maxi dress, the color is fabulous. Looks feminine chic and sassy on you! Love your lustrous hair by the way


    • Thank you so much! :)

  • Love this dress – the colour is great! I obviously need to be checking the racks at F21 more often!


    • Thanks Sarah! Even though it can be overwhelming in there, sometimes they have really great stuff!

  • maxi dresses suit you so well as so does purple. I think that’s your colour. Also, your hair looks absolutely perfect there.

    • You are too sweet Imogen, thank you! xx

  • Ooh I love that dress!! Such a good color! And I love your wavy hair! :D
    (I have far too many clothes that I love, ha hA)

    • Thanks Megan! Haha, it’s hard to pick just one, right? :)

  • Holy crap, that’s a gorgeous, gorgeous dress on you! Purple is so your color.

    • Aww, thanks Courtney! :D

  • Love this maxi dress!

  • I remember this dress! I almost bought it, but I couldn’t find any that weren’t missing the belt in the Union Square F21.

    • Same! I had to hunt for one that wasn’t missing the belt, but luckily I found one!

  • wow! this dress and color looks absolutely amazing on you! love your hair, too — so pretty!

    I agree with the bunches of other people who’ve said it–that purple suits you so well! I have a chiffon-y maxi skirt that I love, but I have to wear heels with it, so it doesn’t get quite as much love as it could. My little lime-green sundress tends to get a lot of love, mostly because it seems like the color goes with everything else I own.

    • Thank you so much Mia! You know, I have not yet worn heels with this dress- definitely a look I want to try :)

  • I LOVE your purple maxi! What a great color.
