AJ Wears :: A Winter Maxi

 I jumped on the maxi bandwagon pretty much when they first came "in" - which means I purchased several questionably shaped and horribly patterned maxi dresses from Target that were more appropriate for a trip to the pool than the mall. I've since wised up and learned that if you're going to have a giant bag covering 95% of your body, at least make sure it's not ruffled, patterned, or ugly.

 Thankfully, this EShakti skirt is none of those things. Look at that gorgeous pleating! It adds just enough interest that it's not a lumpy giant bag (love the defined waist). It is about 5 inches too long, though, which is totally my fault. EShakti actually lets you custom order any of their clothes, so instead of just ordering my standard size, I could have ordered it in a length more suited to someone 5'2". Oops. Instead, I'm wearing my highest heels here. I might hem it for summer so I can wear flat sandals underneath. Oh, I'm forgetting the best part. POCKETS.

What's the consensus on the maxi skirt? Should it just be saved for summer, or can we layer it up for other seasons?
