maxed out

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?

  1. I used to think that I couldn't wear them either (I'm 5'2") but I really love them! They are so great to wear in the summer :)

  2. love maxi dresses...you'll rock one!!!!

  3. Love a cute maxi dress during summer. The white Thakoon one is definitely an easy one to wear without feeling like your petite body is being overwhelmed with fabric. I also love Free People=)

  4. I love Maxi Dresses! So easy to wear and really feminine!!!

  5. Oh I have about 6 and I'm 5-1 3/4" ;o) Love them, esp. because in the summer I can wear them during the day, but keep them on for an early dinner or happy hour. My faves are Gypsy05, Velvet, Splendid and I just got a t-bags one.

    Also espadrille wedges look really cute with them if you want the extra height!

  6. These are all amazing...am sure you'll look fab in one :))

  10. All these dresses are very pretty. There's something about the maxi dress, they are so girly, feminine and screams comfort, don't you think? I am sure you will look beautiful in one of these!


  11. even though I'm short, I still love maxi dresses. It just sucks trying to find ones that will fit my length wise without alteration. Still I am always looking out for them!

  12. I'm petite but I have about 5 maxi dresses. Just find a great pair of heels to wear with them! PS loving the Cynthia Vincent dresses.
