wanted: the perfect maxi dress

I'm so in love with this Derek Lam for Ebay maxi dress but not with the hefty pricetag(295)! Since I don't have the budget of a celebrity or socialite I'm on the search for the perfect affordable style in a wear anytime neutral shade or print. I've been seeing tons of dresses in bright colors and bold patterns but I want something that isn't neon green or tie dyed... my dream dress is a bit bohemian chic and can be dressed down or fancied up in platforms,a blazer, and a bold statement necklace. I also love how this style makes shorties like me(I'm 5'3!) look taller!

How gorgeous is Rachel in this?! I'm loving her hair color/style

I completely agree! I'm short too (5'1) so maxi dresses can be intimidating! I borrowed one from my friend and I love it because it's NOT tie-dye, or neon, or ridiculous. I really love the floral chiffon style ones you have on here :)

I love maxi dresses as well. But I'm also short (5'3). I wouldn't dare wearing it without a pair of high wedges or with just a pair of flats...


I just adore maxi dresses, such a beautiful look and SO unbelievably comfy, a match made in heaven! I'm loving the ones that you've picked, especially the ninth one down. xx veronika
