Maxi Dresses

Definition of the maxi dress: slimming, stylish, sexy, comy-chic, accessible… and the list goes on! This dress could possibly be your best friend this summer—amazing designers are offering it in all types of vibrant patterns and colors this season.  Once a week, I try wearing one of the six that I own. They’re just so soft and comfortable; I mean it’s like an acceptable nightgown (based on comfy factor, of course).  Thrown on with a pair of stylish sandals, some long necklaces and bangles, you’re ready to go! Celebs such as Lauren Conrad and Jessica Alba rely on this dress to look stylish and sleek for a night out or dinner with friends.  Dazzle it up with a wedge shoe, loose wavy hair, and a pop of color on the lip with tarte’s rise and shine lip gloss in pink.  Heading to the beach or running some errands? Just as easily, you can dress this look down with flip flops and a side braid.

How are you accessorizing your maxi dress this season?

Island Getaway Getup

So as January goes, it’s a snowy, slushy day in NYC. All I could think about, as I tried to avoid nasty puddles on my way to the office, were hot temperatures, palm trees and resort wear. Ahhh yes, resort wear. That leads me to today’s fashion fantasy. Check out this new dress from Matthew Williamson’s collection. I know it will NEVER hang in my wardrobe, but can’t a girl dream? This sun-drenched maxi is nothing but feel-good fashion and I just adore the details! This is just one of those items that make me smile. If I had this on now, I think even NYC would feel a little like paradise. Don’t you think?
