Black & White Stripe Maxi Dress

Hi Ladies,
I want to share one of the cool things I found out when I became a blogger...that is how many of my friends have creative side projects too! One of my old classmates has a mommy blog and one of my closest friends in high school has her own Etsy shop! It was really cool to find out...I don't remember her being into jewelry, just studying all the time, but there you go. :) Therefore, I want to introduce Quinana from Postively U.

*Alterations Note:
I don't have before and after pictures, but I raised the waist on this dress. I strongly recommend this if you find a misses knit dress that you love. If it doesn't have a zipper, then it's easy for the tailor. Plus, since most dresses are too long on petites, raising the waist will automatically shorten the length by that amount.

  1. Beautiful maxi dress. It looks so flattering on you and gives such a long silhouette. I love the blue accents you have with your jewellery as well.
