I've yet to embrace the maxi dress trend.  I'm not really a trend person but this one is growing on me.  When they first came out I thought they were cute but it's rarely warm enough for a "patio dress" here and frankly they reminded me of the "hostess dresses" my mom wore to entertain by our pool in the 1970's when I was a kids.  Dated myself there, didn't I?  Anyway, I'm thinking the time has come to take the maxi plunge.  I can just see it with a denim jacket and metallic sandles.  What do you think?


  1. I have seen one maxi I like , but I do not own a single maxi skirt or dress. To me, they almost look like a night gown; plus, here in Texas almost every 17 yr old is wearing them daily.

  2. The maxi dresses came out in Europe before they hit the US. I bought the only 5 I own over there:) and have been wearing regularly since summer 2007. I find them to be amazing and couldn't do without them. Just wore one to my daughter's graduation b/c I did not have time to shave:) The best part of maxi dresses IMO. I have bought one maxi skirt here in the US last summer.
