Melissa's Sweet Style: Denim to the "Max"

Denim to the "Max"

Happy, HAPPY Friday!

For some reason this maxi dress reminds me of a curtain in the 70's......right?  I've had this maxi dress for a long time and I don't get tired of wearing it!  I have pieces that I wear one time and never see them again, and then I have pieces like this that I LOVE and can't get enough of.  Do you sweets like this denim bolero????  I'm still on the fence about it.

A few of my favorite blogger friends have been wearing denim vests....I sooooo need one!  When I saw Naty from A Love Affair With Fashion wearing it with this super cute aztec skirt, I knew I had to have one.  Naty was featured on Glamour for "best dressed" so cool!  Check it out Glamour Feature!   

I also saw a DIY for the denim vest using one of your old denim jackets....I don't know about that!  I wouldn't want to ruin a perfectly good jacket, and what if it doesn't look good? 

I've had this denim bolero for a long time and this is one of the pieces I NEVER wear unlike my dress.  The only reason I through it over this dress is because the denim vest trend inspired me.  Do you like it?  I actually thought about cutting the sleeves off of this, but I think it's too short for a vest.....right?  I guess I will have to add "denim vest" to my current cravings list.



Denim bolero: Mossimo (Target)
Maxi dress: (very old)
Sandals: Payless
Necklace: Mandees







Have a FAB Friday!

  1. You are soooo sweet for shouting me out as well as my feature!! You look great and this dress is so pretty! It has a vintage feel to it. I think the demin bolero worked well!! But definitely try for a sleeveless one because those summer days get hot :) xoxo

  4. This is really brilliant, Melissa. I would have never thought of pairing a short denim jacket with a long maxi. Opposites attract! They look great together!

  18. I happen to love it when other people mix denim with maxi dresses and pull it off.
    You're one of those cases :). I for one, haven't really given it a try yet.
