Since making it's return to the more popular fashion circuits in the last few years it's now taking a distinct vintage turn, angling more towards their predecessors of the 60's and 70's. Being that these dresses are freakin' fantastic pieces that are usually splashed with poignant colours and have the potential for use in any social situation - dress it up or dress it down. Easy!
I myself have enough maxi's to have a closet for themselves but now that I'm hooked on vintage the originals are way more interesting and for all my hijaabi sisters who find it hard to find something modest and awesomely wicked, go vintage baby! The true vintage maxis are the true inspiration for a lot of my pieces which no doubt has been seen in a few of my earlier blogs.
Here are some that I've just located on Etsy.com - they're all in my favourites incase you spot one you love too much to pass by. I'm definitely inspired by caftans - love love love them!!
This one's for my abaaya wearing sisters - love it, no?
So now for one of my more recent designs. It's a little more unusual, possibly good for evening wear, especially with it's skirt.
