Mom-Finds: And Apparel Strapless Maxi

Last Friday of the month:  Shopping / Fashion

Growing up, I've never been a fan of shorts and minis.  I guess it's because I was too skinny my whole life (it was a major insecurity for me) and was never confident wearing them in public - unless necessary, like on the beach of course! I am most comfortable in pants. If I have to wear a dress or skirt, it should be knee-length at the very least, and I'm good to go.

My most recent shopping find is this Miya Maxi Dress by And Apparel - another versatile piece from one of my favorite online stores, Catalogue63.
Miya Maxi @ PhP 1,250
When Catalogue63 launched their new collection some weeks back, I immediately eyed the Miya maxi.  I'm not much into strapless clothes, but the style and flattering silhouette of this dress spoke to me.  I know the length is perfect for my height since I have the Kelly dress as well, and it fits really well.

This style comes in three colors - purple, gray, and black.  I originally wanted the gray, but it was sold out by the time I decided to purchase.  I went for the black instead.  It was a good thing I ended up with black since my accessories really popped against this classic dark color.  

I love everything about it!
  • Comfortable cut and fabric, not clingy
  • Side pockets
  • Drawstring waist
  • Floor length
  • Easy to slip into and take off

This chic maxi can be dressed up in many ways.  I first wore with gold flat sandals.  In these photos, I matched it with my comfy black gladiator sandals.

How I dress up the Miya Maxi:
  • Put on a bold, chunky necklace
  • Cover-up with a bright colored cardigan
  • Add some glam with gold accessories
  • Throw on a printed scarf and tie/wear in different ways
The dress is comfortable enough for the beach or for shopping, and also perfect for casual dates and parties, lunch or dinner with friends.
