Maxi dresses have proven to be a huge challenge for me. Newsflash… I’m short! I’ve tried on so many, but most of them make me look like I’m playing dress up in my mum’s clothes. I’ve found two tricks for all you short girls out there. One – if you’re small you can buy them in the children’s department. I know it sounds ridiculous, but there are some really nice ones and they won’t drag on the ground. Two – the higher in the front, lower in the back ones don’t seem to be as long for some reason. After trying on a store full of maxis I found this one and it worked! I could wear it with flats if I wanted to! Good luck shorties!
Last night we met friends for supper at the Palm Too in New York City. Great food and great company! After dinner we set out to take pictures and found this great piece of architecture outside of the Nigerian Consulate! We also realized that directly behind us was an amazing view of the Chrysler Building all lit up.
At 10:30 in the evening it was still a whopping 99 degrees fahrenheit! Way too hot and humid for me! I usually wear this dress with a belt for some definition, but the temperature just wouldn’t allow me to have anything constricting or touching me at all! I couldn’t even put on a necklace because the thought of something around my neck in this heat just wasn’t happening!

Such a hot day — not a fan! I really don’t like anything about this weather. It’s hot and sticky and there are way too many bugs. If I could, I would hibernate from June through October. I’m the opposite of a bear! My chihuahua on the other hand quite enjoys this heat. Anyhoo, I found something nice and cool to wear so I wouldn’t melt!
