A to JaZZ festival: the return of the maxi dress

Festivals of all sorts have been dominating the last few summers as the It thing to do. I know I can’t be the only one who is sick and tired of denim cut offs and a faded *insert 70’s band name here* tee. If you plan on spending the day and/or night on a blanket in the grass and sipping wine from a plastic cup, a cocktail dress and heels ain’t gonna cut it. 

Move over cocktail slip on , there’s a new dress in town! 

They say maxi dresses and skirts are making a comeback this year since they dominated the Spring runways. But did they ever really leave? From the 90’s when maxi dresses became every beach babe’s must-have till now, dominating the street style scene. The perfect length is around the ankles or gently touching the floor, as middies can be unflattering. You can’t go wrong with a daring slit or a flirty back, in a bright statement color or a gentle pastel. My personal obsession; colors and patterns mixed at random but matching perfectly. 

This last weekend I had a blast at the A to JaZZ Festival here in Sofia. I wore a gorgeous Charlotte Russe maxi dress with rose gold Nine West sandals and earrings, Esprit bag and my favorite name necklace in white gold. 

Put your hair up in a bun, relax and enjoy the music. Clean, bright or gypsy chic, the maxi dress is here to stay! 

Love, Silvia Mèlange

Coachella dreamin’

TGIF, Lovies!

Unfortunately, I won’t be making it to Coachella this year. However lately I’m noticing my style is getting influenced by the whole festival/chill/gypsy/hippy vibe the fashion world has going on. The flirt with the 90’s trends with just a hint of the 60’s is absolutely fabulous! I cannot wait to see what The September Issue has in store but I hope it’s just as refreshing.

 I even managed to come up with a look that’s appropriate for casual Friday! I fell in love with this pattern last month, meaning my top is custom made. Spicing it up with my favorite pair of distressed denim from JBrand (I added a few extras on my own), comfy flats from Bershka and a Dior inspired bag I found a few years ago. I completed my look with layered necklaces from Zara and custom made vintage silver bracelets. 

I can’t wait until Summer festivals in my area begin!! Until then, it’s Coachella dreamin’ baby!

Xoxo, Silvia Mèlange
