Trendy Wednesday - The Maxi-Dress

It's been so long since I've posted my last Trendy Wednesday!  I've missed sharing my favorite finds with yall , but having moved and bought a new house, I needed to cut back on my frivolous spending.  So I also cut back on my internet window shopping as to not be tempted. 

Knowing I would be in NYC last weekend, I began the hunt for the perfect maxi-dress.  At first, I struggled with the idea of a maxi-dress.  It's so hot here in the summer that it's hard to imagine being draped in so much fabric, but I think they add a little elegance to my casual summer warddrobe.    Here's a few that I had my eye on...

The Shapeshifter Maxi from Anthropologie in Multi
This is actually the one I purchased in New York.  I love the colorful pattern and the neckline is very flattering.
The Shapeshifter Maxi from Anthropologie in Blue Motif
This fabric was also very pretty in person.

A-Different-Striped Dress from Anthropologie
I think this might look a little frumpy on my, but the back is amazing and on the right body type would be adorable!

Grey and white - my favorite summer color combination!  The chevron pattern is quite slimming if you ask me.

Ruffle in front, racerback from behind.  I love this!!I wish it was slightly longer, but I think it would be perfect for a petite girl who has trouble with the length of the typical maxi dress.

High fashion meets summer time fun.  This might be my very favorite of the bunch.  It gives a whole new meaning to little black dress.

Have you found yourself the perfect summer maxi-dress?

  7. Oh I love them all, especially the ruffled black one! SO cute! xx

  8. I love the maxi, but I am still unsure of how they look on me and I haven't been able to take the plunge. LOVE the dress you chose, darlin'!

  9. The maxi dress style makes it easier to dress taller or wider women because it offers enough coverage while making you feel feminine. The maxi dress is can be difficult for those with a bigger bust. Searching for maxi dresses with halter necks are more flattering on your body shape but make sure it's not too tight.
