A MAXI SKIRT ON SOMEONE MINI

Being 5 foot 2, the 'Maxi' trend has never really worked for me. Even in petite sections, a dress or skirt has a foot long train and I look like a little girl in her mum's clothes. My 13 year old sister is taller than me which made me consider trying kid's maxi skirts/dresses. I may not be as skinny as a 10 year old girl but considering most skirts are elasticated, I thought there was a slight possibility that they would fit. So this skirt is from the children's section in Primark and it's length fit's perfectly! It means no more tripping over stairs or having to hold up the side of the skirt so I don't step on it. I might have to start looking in the children's section of shops more often; perfecting sizing and no VAT!

  3. what a clever idea, that literally just blew my mind! I'm 5'3 and my torso is quite long which means I have teeny tiny legs. I always love the look but it just doesn't fit me! definitely going to head down to primark and see what I can pick out :)

  21. you are so friggin' gorgeous!
    wow.
    i'm laura, i'm new so thought i'd say hi.
    i've recently started shopping in the kids sections everywhere too.
    it's so much cheaper and adults clothes, even some of the petite ones, are reeeaaaaally long!
    anyway, i hope you can come and speak soon, you seem so lovely.
    love, laura x

  22. I just stumbled across your blog (fellow mini) and did the same but with a Primark children's dress, just chopped the straps off. It's much cheaper being small :P
