never say never

dress: Lucca Couture, bracelet: Juicy Couture, shoes: Aldo, leopard print glasses: forever21, earrings: vintage

April's VOGUE made the following statement:

" The mile-long skirts that, in our view, are such a fresh and confident day alternative? Frankly, yes, they work best on taller women- or someone of average height who moves well in platforms."
-VOGUE point of view/ article Whatever Works

When I read this I immediately agreed with Anna Wintour's view of long skirts. Mile-long skirts are not a great investment for my body type. Although, the one long dress I own is this one pictured above and even if I could get it longer to wear with platforms..I prefer the maxi dresses with flats. It just emphasizes that bohemian beachy vibe. I think with the right cut, fit, color..etc. ANYONE can wear mile-long skirts...but that's just me...

Vinda Sonata said...

you look super gorgeous, Silvia. hot outfit, and great quotation from vogue. can't agree more!!

Paola said...

What a beautiful place to take some pictures! And the dress is super pretty as well.

I also think that anyone can wear anything, as long as they feel good and confident about it. Personally I dislike the "dress for your body type" kind of mag articles and stuff, clothes should be about having fun and self expression.

I totally agree about the maxidress-flats combo. Definitely the most comfortable and fresh outfit for spring and summer.
