10th Commandment: January 25

Jan 25, 2011

I usually don’t indulge in Spring attire until the days get longer, but I spotted this dress, and even I forgot that it isn’t March, yet.  

This dress might be the most perfect maxi dress ever.  It’s jersey, so it’s comfortable and casual.  But the cut is a bit more sophisticated than your average maxi dress.  This will be the perfect dress to wear on the airplane or to the office during recess. 

Endless Lengths Dress (Anthropologie, $138)

    I like that this is a maxi dress with sleeves. Spaghetti straps = ew.

    Oh gosh, I think this could age one drastically.

    R-

    Only if you wear it with closed toed pumps and a cardigan. Instead, try to liven it up with stacked bangles, a metallic sandal and wavy hair.

    I saw this on anthro's site this week and fell in luuuuuuuuuuuuve. I would wear this from now until June…and probably beyond.

    Ok, this may seem like a ridiculous question, but can you get a maxi dressed hemmed, or does it look bad? I LOVE maxi dresses, but all of them seem to be insanely long and I'd love to be able to wear with flats!

  6. JL says:

    Maxi dresses, and this one in particular, remind me of those Texas FLDS folks:

    Is this a body type thing that maxi's look right on some people, but maybe not everyone?

    Belle,

    I'm 5'3″. Is it even possible for me to wear a maxi dress without it overwhelming me? If so, I could use some tips.
