I have loved the maxi dress look for a while now but have not purchased one and maybe tried on only two because I felt they did not look right on my 5'1 frame. But a few nights ago I had dinner with a friend of mine and she was wearing the cutest simple black maxi dress and she's my height! I am definitely giving the maxi dress a serious looking at and now I am on the search for the perfect one. I love the flowing styles like the silk Cynthia Vincent dresses (6th photo) but think a more streamlined style would look best on me, either way I am excited to try some on! Have you tried a maxi dress yet?
