Coveting: The Maxi Dress

Feb 12, 2013

It is no secret my favorite item to buy for the Summer is by far a Maxi Dress.  I live in them once the weather turns warm.  I have found if you don’t start snatching them up now all the good ones are sold out come the Summer.  So I complied a little list of my favorite maxi dresses that you should buy!

This first dress I actually own and have it stashed away for this Summer.  It is the Rory Becca T-Back Gown in Cosmo print,  from Social Dress Shop.  I am absolutely obsessed with it.  You can still get an extra 25% off it thru Thursday with code: Love25.
It is such a flattering  and great fitting maxi dress!  The pattern and colors are even more gorgeous in person!

Social Dress Shop just got it in stock in this fabulous Mint color as well.  I picture this with a tan,  some killer nude sandals, and maybe a long chain necklace.   I think I just convinced myself I need it too:)  Take advantage of the 25% off and grab one of these before  they sell out again!  It also comes in a reddish orange color I wrote about last week.

Is it just me or does it look exactly like this Tibi Maxi that retails for $575??  Seriously buy the Rory Becca version for a fraction of the cost!  I can’t imagine dropping that kind of money on a Maxi dress- $600 could buy alot of clothes!

Next on my list are all these beauties.  Such classic Maxi dresses that are so versatile.  Hoping they will all make their way to my closet!  The middle black one by Rachel Pally is my favorite.  You can never go wrong with a black maxi dress!

And if you are looking for pattern. These are my favorite patterned Maxi dresses. The first dress by Sabine is a steal less than $100.   I tried on the Ella Moss one and adore it!

Lastly,  the best cheap and chic Maxi I found.  This Maxi is only $29 from F21!!  Does it not look like a way more expensive dress?   It is headed my way as I type.  Such a steal!

So,  just do it and get on the Maxi Train.  They are easy, effortless, and chic!

    I see some chiseled arms coming out of that cute maxi dress, Lady! Do you have a particular muscle workout you do (besides lifting the little man which is a workout in itself?) šŸ™‚

  3. Oh I love it! And that orangey coral color is a must with my dark hair. I can't believe how much it looks like the Tibi. Such a great find. Glad to see it's lengthy enough for us tall girls.
