Maxing out the Snake Charmer

I've been feeling the maxi skirt recently. I'm not sure if its a Sydney thing or if its Australia wide, but I've been seeing them on girls everywhere and I knew I wanted a piece of the action too. And why not? Maxis are perfect "sin hiders" hiding away your unshaved hairy winter legs whilst also skimming over your tummy giving your outfit a nice line. I'm wearing my favourite piece from the City Chic Snake Charmer collection the City Chic Cammo Girl Maxi $119.95 AUD. Now I'm going to let you in on a little secret, I actually altered the dress and made it into a skirt as I knew I wanted to be able to wear it like that. Before I did that I was wearing my tops over it and it looked fine, but knowing how easy it is to make a dress into a skirt I couldn't resist the change. I'm always altering things to make them work for me, and really you shouldn't be afraid to do the same thing too. The rest of my outfit consists of a brilliant op shop find of a burnt orange blouse that was only $1.60 (gotta love op shops!)  and my necklace is made by my talented friend Estelle Dévé, every time I wear it I get lots of compliments. I also wore my new favourite belt (which is exactly what I've been looking for, thanks City Chic!) City Chic Leather Jean Belt $39.95 AUD and my City Chic Pleather Biker Jacket in tan $149.95 AUD which is great for the cold/hot/cold weather we've been having.
