Maxi Dress, Maximum Hell.

I hope as you read this you nod and totally agree with me. (if you don't, it's ok, I probably don't like you anyway because you are supermodel skinny)

Maxi dresses.

I love them, I adore them, I have visions of drifting along a river bank, picking flowers and putting them into a cycle basket before gently cycling off. (Ok, that may just be a tampon advert I have described there but it's my fantasy so there)

But in reality I own ONE maxi dress, don't get me wrong, it's beautiful. But I have more chance finding Lord Lucan than I do finding another one that fits me as well as this one does.

I must have tried on hundreds of different Maxi dresses now. Being a large chested sort of girl, some would get me arrested for indecency. I'm also only 5'4 so some of them trail on the floor making me look like a child playing dress up. This I can handle, I just take them off and put them back on the rail, what I HATE are the ones that make me look like a pregnant Teletubby, (It was yellow, you get the picture don't you) It was quite traumatic.

But I am going to find another maxi dress (preferably before summer is over. It is? oh shucks)

And here are some of my favourites around at the moment.

This dress is from http://www.missguided.co.uk/ I love Missguided, perfect online shopping store with great prices, and also a outfit for every occasion, If you've never tried them out before I highly recommend them. This one is only £22.99

This is my actual Maxi dress. it came from http://www.dorothyperkins.com/ £38 Perfect for wearing casual or teaming with heels for an evening out, this summer this will be my go-to dress.

If you are looking for something just a little bit different, this Maxi dress is from the Kate Moss for Topshop Summer Collection, This is part of the Limited edition range and is £120

I'd love to know your views on Maxi dresses and whether you too have trouble finding the perfect one. It seems that I love them, but they don't love me.

  1. My apologies for the large gaps, I think it is to do with the pictures.

  2. i couldn't agree more re: maxi dresses! i'm short and curvy and pale. this does not translate very well into a maxi dress!!!! i love the dorothy perkins one! i saw a few in there the other day that caught my eye. maybe i'll be brave enough to try one on at some stage! x

  3. Hun if I can do it, anyone can.

    I do show off a lot of cleavage in the DP one but hey, I've got it, I might as well flaunt it x x
