Maxi Dresses

You guys, I'm so excited for spring!  I been eyeing cute little dresses and bright colors like whoa.

When the UK brand Very contacted me to review their shop, I happily obliged.  1) Because I wanted to represent the UK readers for once!  2) I loved so many pieces in their store!

They have a bazillion products to choose from.  Colorful, unique, and fun!  When I first went to Very's site, I went straight to the dresses because hello, what fun is spring without fun dresses?  And I might have a dress addiction.  I'm especially excited about all of the colorful maxi dresses they have.  I only fell in love with them last summer and have just a solid navy one to show for it.  I love how maxi dresses always make a statement, and I'm hoping to add one more statement maker to my wardrobe, like one of these:

Will you be wearing a maxi dress this spring?

  1. I had a couple last spring and have donated them away...  I have a hard time with the lengths - the two I had shrunk after washing and the new shorter length felt awkward.  What length do you like - ankles?  dusting the ground?  

    Maybe I'll try again with something a little higher quality- something I can't wash and/ or shrink!

    1. Had the same problem with one last year that I bought @ new york & co. Actually took the bottom hem out & it looks good again. Now I'm careful to dry on low heat only. Of course not all dresses would work w/ the hem taken out but this one looks cute!

  2. These dresses are beautiful; I will definitely be rocking a maxi dress this summer.  :)  Quick question:  Where did you get the green army vest you feature in your "Putting Her Together" segment?  I'm in love with it and must have one! 

    Dossome :)

  3. I'm still trying to find one for short people... I'm loving them maxis more and more though and would totally wear those floral print ones. Great with a denim jacket and wedge sandals!

  5. Hi Ashley!  Old Navy, last summer.  Sometimes they have them at Gap, Banana, and J.Crew, too.

  6. Ugh, I HATE when dresses shrink!  Or when any clothes shrink, for that matter.  That's a bummer.  I like ankle length because I don't like the thinking about what kinds of gross things I might dust off the ground otherwise.  But, I'm a little germaphobic haha.

  7. Eh, I like them on other people. I'm only 5'3 so maxis don't work for my height. I find dresses below my knee in general swallow me up. :/

  8. Nope.  I'm with Mary at 5'3", so it's rare for me to don a skirt longer than knee-length.

  10. Maxi dresses are amazing! I've wanted one for such a long time, but as a tall girl, I could never find one long enough...until a few weeks ago :) 

    I may have to buy another now though. The ones your featuring are SO CUTE.

  11. I have become a big fan of yours. I just spent hours looking through your blog and enjoying it. You have a knack for styling for the everyday gal. I have 2 maxi dresses and 1 maxi skirt that I love wearing. Because I am short (5'2"), I buy primarily in the petite depts of stores. I find that the length of the dresses and skirts is perfect most of the time.

  17. Oddly enough, I just finished posting about maxi skirts/dresses...I love them especially for travelling in teh summer as they are so easy to pack, comfy to wear, and versatile to style.  I can't wait to see what you do with your maxis!  I'm sure you'll have lots of great styling tips, as always.
