How To: Pair Maxi with Cropped

2:21:00 AM

Haven't been posting about style outfit for quite some time and thought that I should post this today. Feeling a little bit Cinderella-ish with this super twirly skirt and lace cropped cardigan. The skirt is custom made for one of my cousin's wedding more than 10 years ago (I think..).
I was surprised to found out that this skirt still retain it's beauty, there's nothing wrong with the material or the shape, nothing's changed except for my waistline size (whoopss!).

Anyway I love how feminine this skirt makes me feel. It's floral with rich colors, the shape is very lovely and it enables you to twirl around and around and around almost like a flamenco skirt. And I'm quite happy that this skirt still fit me just fine (although a little bit snuggier) after all these years ^o^

Skirt: custom-made, Brown tank: random brand
Lace Cardigan: Cow Girl Heaven (via Etsy)
Necklace: De Moda, Clutch: Carousel
Sandals: Payless, Ring: Guess


So pairing a maxi skirt with a cropped top is one of the trick to balance your overall look especially if you're small or petite. The formula of balancing a maxi with a mini is a classic trick, and I do it all the time. As well as pairing a baggy or roomy bottom with a fitted top or vice versa. Just think "opposites" ^o^

If I'm pairing a maxi skirt with cropped top then I would choose for a high-waisted skirt because it would look best for petites, and I would also try not to pair maxi with long sleeve top to avoid the "you-look-like-you're-drowning-in-your-outfit" look. That's why I rolled my sleeves a bit in this outfit. Oh but unless the top is really slinky or fitted to your body then I think it's okay to wear long sleeves with maxi.

Make up I used, in order:
Make Up Forever High Definition Elixir
Olay White Radiance Intensive Whitening Lotion SPF24
Caring Colors BB Cream Everlast
Caring Colors Dual Action Cake in 03 (Soft Natural)
Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Express Eyebrow kit

For the eyes, I used:
Stila Lovely Eye Palette (I used the color "Chinois", a nude color)
Revlon Pencil Eyeliner in Black 01
Maybelline Volum Express Turbo Boost Mascara in Very Black
Shue Uemura Eyelash Curler 
For the lips:
Bath & Body Works Milk n Cookies Lip Balm
Eve Organics Natural Lip Liner in Sweet Merlot
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Creme 117 (my most favorite nude lipstick of all!)
Artistry Lip Shine in Bloom (010) - an almost nude color


I love how the mascara turned out! For this look I lined my upper eyelid, and then curl my eyelashes first, and then put on the first layer of mascara, concentrating in the based of my eyelashes to get that thick look. And then I put second layer of mascara, this time concentrating in lengthening the tip of the eyelashes by swiping it upward with a light but firm stroke. And then I put another layer as the final layer to define and separate the lashes. Followed by another curl with the eyelash curler. 
And then I do the bottom eyelashes in just a light one-by-one stroke because I don't really have that much eyelashes there below my eyes. But I heard Vaseline can help you grow your lashes so maybe I'd try this trick on my bottom eyelashes. I'll let you know if it works ;p
