Maxi Dresses

The weather is crap today and we had big plans that all involved being outside. To cure my sadness I went to look at pretty things on style.com. Since I'm in love with my new Nina Ricci shoes, I checked out their runway collection and found these gorgeous maxi dresses.

I love that they are cinched at the waist and so perfectly poufy and flowy, unlike the usual maxi dresses that we are used to seeing. These would be so perfect for an outdoor dinner party on a warm summer's night. Something that we are completely not having today. sigh.

  3. I can't help but love how they look...but a "maxi" dress on me would definitely need alterations. I'm all of five feet tall...so there' be some hemming involved. It would actually be quite lengthening on someone my size... one long column of color. And I'd certainly opt for solids. I love the idea... I just hate having to get more things altered.

    I completely agree with you.... those cinched waistlines are fantastic!

  4. Diaboling - def. proenza-esque. love their detailing.

    angel - the first one is my fave as well. It's what got me looking at the collection.

    lil bee - i know right? if I could only afford to buy one!

    franki - I hear ya. I'm not much taller than you and I get everything altered to fit me. I have quite found a maxi that looks great on me but I still like looking at them!
