To the Maxi...

well it's official... I'm seeing maxi dresses everywhere this summer in Riverside. And if you don't know where Riverside is, it's a desert like city in Southern California. I've been here for 4 years and lots of the outfits here consist of tees and jeans and flip flops. Very SoCal of them.
I guess I don't blame them much because summer in Riverside range from 100 to 110 degree.
You don't get a lot of options here when you sweating a liter of sweat a day. -____-

But anywho, I've noticed that this year we are really up in our fashion game.
Summer outfits have deviated from the white tees and jeans to maxi dresses, straw hats, printed blouses, and I think I saw someone wear Harem pants the other day. Dare devil.

So I've decided to show some maxi dresses so if you're ever shopping and you never thought maxi dresses were for you, you should give that maxi dress in the window a second look.

They can be wore in many occasion:



It just depends on your color and fabric choice. If it's more earthly tone and the fabric is more jersey then you can pull it off for a more casual and daytime look. If the fabric is silky then it will do better to wear it to a dinner date.

It's also works for a lot of body shapes and sizes.
Don't think because you're short or busted that you can't wear it. Estelle (above) is a more busted figure but she pulls it off just fine.

For petite and more non curvier ladies, it's nice too. You might have to get it tailored so it doesn't drag on the floor but that's easy.
If you want to make it look like you have more curves, a belt would help.

And with some maxi dresses you don't have to wear too much accessories because it's elaborate as it is. Not wearing accessories in Riverside summer is perfect because you don't want something heavy hanging from your neck. it's just too hot.

LOL. I sound like a maxi dress salesman in this post
but watever
I hope I've convinced you to go out and buy one to try
cuz life is short, so take a risk
break fashion rules

Love, Miss3va

It's a Man's World...

Ok so we may not have a penis, but that will not standing in our way. We will walk where we want, talk the way we want to and dress however we please.
When I was little, my mom always yelled at me because I sat with my legs opened and talked really loud. She was always saying, "A lady should not speak and act like that."
Now I just thought my mom was a little too traditional
but as I grew older, I started to find out everyone thought that way whether they showed it or not.
People always thought you were a slut if you sat with your legs open
and they thought you were vulgar or "manly" if you spoke loudly.
It's called projecting your voice, people. haha

Anyways, so I was browsing and I came across Moschino Resort Collection
I love the colors in this collection. It's not too obscure that you can't wear it to work and it looks fun enough that you can wear it out too.
And that's what we love right, an outfit that is multi-functional and multi- event- wearing.

I would love to go to a dinner party dressed like this and all the other ladies are in dresses. You would look so pimp. :)

Love the backwards tux.

I bought a similiar looking trouser at H&M the other day. Outfit idea!

p.s. I love the expression on the model. She looks like she's going "duh!" LMAO.
