I am just not in the mood for maxis at the moment.
They are all gorgeous but I am feeling swamped
by all those metres of fabric
- don't fence me in, daddy-o -
and I'm just not wearing them.
So after consulting with darling Vanessa,
I have taken the plunge and chopped a maxi.
And I am very happy with the result...
What do you think?
Here are a few other maxis that I am considering chopping... should I?
This divine red poly 1960s maxi is an old fave...
This gorgeous 1970s brushed cotton frock was a gift
from mi amor Helgita Burrita.
Another old treasure, this 1970s canary yellow nylon maxi
is getting a bit scruffy these days...
I think I already prefer it shorter.
And this one is such a beauty... It was a gift from darling Curtise and I absolutely adore it - look at the collar and cuff details.. but it does feel a little overwhelming to wear.
And here's a little moment from my day... I have a house full of my fabulous family at the moment and my awesome sister in law whipped up a couple of delcious baked treats this afternoon. Here are the banana cakes cooling on the kitchen bench. One gluten free for me and one with extra gluten for everybody else.
What's a girl to do when holding baby in one arm and
cake in the other? Bugger cutlery. I'm not sharing.

So what do you say... to chop or not to chop?
