10th Commandment: June 28

Jun 28, 2013

I’ve been searching for a soft, breezy maxi dress for awhile now.  I purchased this dress from Ann Taylor a few weeks ago, and while it’s beautiful and bright, the fabric quality was like a trash bag.  When I moved, the dress actually sounded like I was crinkling paper. So the search continues.

Alternative Apparel Racerback Maxi ($68)

I love the look of this dress.  And it comes in six gorgeous, muted colors.  I think I may give this one a try.

Plus-size ladies should have a look at this verdant tank dress.  Petite readers might like this jersey dress from Ann Taylor.

    What a bummer about that Anne Taylor dress, it’s so pretty. I too have been searching for awhile for a new maxi dress. I wanted something in a petite length so I wouldn’t have to hem it or only be able to wear it with heels, a bright color and preferably something with enough coverage for a regular bra. I finally found a dress I loved at Macy’s

    How do you feel about short ladies in maxis, Belle?

    You can often get Rachel pally dresses on hautelook for a nice discount and they are so comfy!

    I bought a cross-back maxi similar to the Alternative Apparel one at Loft the other day (on sale) and I really like it. Slit on one side, 100% cotton. Only had it in grey though.

  5. Belle, try Mango. Big selection of maxis although some of their maxis span into evenigg wear. I also had decent luck w Splendid and american apparel maxis

    I found a great MaxStudio maxi at Nordstrom Rack yesterday – the style is exactly what i was looking for (v neck, pretty detailing, straps that i can wear a regular bra with)…I was hoping for a bright color but it only came in black, i still snagged it because it seems finding a maxi i dont need to wear a strapless bra with is next to impossible.

    I really like the Gabriella Rocha maxi, and 6pm.com has them on sale. There are other nice colors on Zappos.
