Am I the only one that doesn't like "maxi" dresses? Maybe it's because at 5'1" it would be impossible to find one that didn't drag the floor.

I'm also 5'1 and you're right that they drag the floor (I recently acquired a couple of maxi dresses from Old Navy and they're quite long), but I figure I can hem them a bit. I like the option of having something cover my legs, but not feeling restricted as I would with pants.

Those dresses are gorgeous AND amazing deals, thanks!

I've added you to my blog roll by the way :-)

Never was much a fan, but I love that purple one. But help! Is it possible for the short and wide (curvy) to pull off the maxi dress look? I feel like I'd look like a little girl playing dress up in her mommy's sun dresses.

Dang. I'm anti-maxidress, but that first one is really tempting!

i was against this whole maxidress trend, but that purple goddess dress is enough to change my mind!

The dark pink dress is very pretty, too bad my arms are too fleshy so I don't like to do sleeveless dresses if I can help it! :-(

I am so dissapointed. Having finally found the perfect dresses at reasonable prices, they are all sold out. Being relatively tall it is so hard to find maxi dresses. Will these dresses be for sale again. I live in Barbados so all year it's Summer.
